"Forever" nevermore
Stay Up Forever, a 57th Street coffee shop, went out of business in June after just nine months of operation ("College Report," October/00). Besides the usual caffeinated fare, the student-run shop offered poetry readings, chess playing, and movie nights. The University, which owns the building, has accepted a proposal for a bread and pastry shop in its place.

Student's "Hope" published
Hope's End, a science-fiction novel by Stephen Chambers, '02, was published in August by Tor Books. Chambers, who worked on the book his first two years at Chicago, says the College's courses deepened his understanding of history, one of the book's major themes. He's hard at work on the sequel, Hope's War, and on his latest project: a B.A. paper.

Going up
The cost of attending the College increased by $1,457 this fall. Tuition went up by $1,215 to $26,022 and room and board by $242 to $8,312. According to vice president and dean for college enrollment Michael C. Behnke, the University raises its rates annually to match inflation, salary increases, and rising costs.

Raising Ratner
Workers began construction of the new Gerald Ratner Athletics Center in August. Construction, scheduled to begin in January 2001, was delayed while the design was fine-tuned. Officials estimate the center will open fall 2003.
