III. Announcements and Constituent Concerns
Bottle – couple broken behind Murphy house. This is NOT GOOD! Your mother
doesn’t live on this campus to make decisions for you or to clean up after you!
This campus is our home. Lets keep it nice and clean! (:
we see what is going on with the email lists? IT liaison will address it. Karla
reports that we have this problem every Fall. This is nothing to be alarmed
about. IT will be contacted but keep your pants on…the problem will be fixed.
Also for IT, can we get some Statistical packages for OTC? Please and Thank
in Art Building B please please! Art majors need the space to work and the air
conditioning has not been properly working or turned off at night - in either
case, IT NEEDS TO BE FIXED! Lydia is going to contact the Art Faculty to see
what we can do! (:
walk going to Art building is not really safe. Jim and Karla’s response: the
roads among Hendrix are not Hendrix owned. We have been trying for years to get
a legit crosswalk between Public Safety and Huntington. However, they will be
looking into it for you.
address the concern about Vending machines in the Library: Vending machine is a
dining service – Ruairi Fox will be handling that! (:
at Mills street. There is a composting site is behind the garden behind the
Public Safety. It is not that far off a walk.
up: looking into New York Times –
they can not be delivered to individual apts. It will be at the post
Depre looked into the Wall Street Journal and you can order that online for
less than $2 a week. They are delivered to your mail box and you can even
access it 24/7 online! THAT IS A PRETTY SWWEEEEEEET DEAL! Thanks PAUL!
in the WAC concern from last week – After careful investigation, Karla
announced that they are apart of the sunshine membership within the WAC.
IV. Departmental Liaison Reports
ISSUE – Taylor Kidd met with Mike Floyd and here is the deal. It has always
been that the hot breakfast closed at 8:30 and out of the kindness of the
cafeteria’s heart – which is mighty big – they would keep the food out until it
was gone or until 9:30. The reason they started taking it up was because
students complained when the roles were out. They will be keeping it out until
9:00 but now later. Next time students (including me), lets be a little more
understanding towards the caf ladies and gentlemen and be grateful that they
get up that early just so we can have food.
and the tents: there some issues
with some logistical stuff going on. They will be discussing and getting back

a mtg on Sunday, it went well. For the apartment councils, we are
going to try to have execs in place before fall break. Shortly after fall
break, we want to have elections for the whole council. Hopefully the
first event will take place before Thanksgiving.
hope the apt council and the events that they plan will
be an opportunity to bring together the apt dwellers that are so
scattered across campus/ keep them connected to campus.

Newspapers to Be Made Available in the Cafeteria:
Last year, Hendrix Student Senate provided funding for 12
copies of the New York Times and 10 copies of the Arkansas Gazette
to be delivered to the cafeteria everyday. The students, faculty, and cafeteria
staff enjoyed reading these publications while in the cafeteria, and returned
them to the stand to be re-used as they left. In addition to the continuation
of this program with these two paper, I propose that this year the cafeteria
also receive 5 copies of Conway's local paper, the Log Cabin Democrat.
Hendrix College is a part of the Conway community, and I believe it is
critically important to stay up-to-date on local issues and support the local
newspaper. I am requesting $2455.00 for 5 subscriptions of the Log Cabin
Democrat, 10 subscriptions of the Arkansas Gazette, and 12
subscriptions of the New York Times.
The Log Cabin Democrat
The subscription fee for the Log Cabin Democrat is $9.50 per month. For the
total school year the cost per subscription (nine months, Monday through
Saturday) is $85.50. For 5
subscriptions, the total cost for the whole year is $427.50
The Arkansas Gazette CALL
The Gazette's discount for student subscriptions is $126.00
(per subscription) for nine months, excluding fall, Christmas, and spring
breaks. For 10 subscriptions, the total cost for the school year is $1260.00
The New York Times
The New York Times cost $32.00 per semester (Monday through
Friday), which is more than 50% off the news-stand price. For 12 subscriptions,
the total cost for both semesters of this school year is $768.00.
5 orders of a 9 month subscription to the Log Cabin
10 orders of a 9 month subscription to the Arkansas Gazette:
12 orders of a 9 month subscription to the New York
Access to various news sources is a necessity for creating
an informed public that is capable of becoming involved in complex decisions
facing society. Although there are
copies of these papers in the library, very few students actually go to the library
with the intention of reading the paper.
We feel by giving students ready access to the papers every single day
by placing the papers in the cafeteria, students will be more likely to read. Furthermore, having newspapers at hand
will encourage students to discuss other news issues once the articles have
been read in Table Talk. By purchasing papers through the school, students can
receive the discounted rate and share the papers amongst themselves, reducing
the total number of papers students would otherwise need to purchase.
A well-rounded education is necessary for an active
citizenry and we feel by offering papers this continues the liberal arts
understanding of educating “unto the whole person.” Free papers are common at most other liberal arts colleges,
and has been instituted for the past two school years at Hendrix. The program has been a success; on any
given day, all copies of The Gazette and the New York Times were
in circulation by lunchtime. Hopefully, the availability of daily news will
help make class discussions more meaningful by giving students a greater
understanding of current events. Secondly, many students feel that apathy
towards greater social concerns is a major problem on Hendrix campus; by giving
people readier access to information on what is going on outside of our
“bubble,” a greater sense of social urgency will be created. Also, many feel that the city of Conway
is a cultural void. The Log
Cabin Democrat will hopefully dispel some of this notion, but also will
encourage students to become active outside of the strict confines of
campus. Very few students actually
know what is going on within Conway, and hopefully by making people aware of
important events, people will be able to expand their education.
We understand that a subscription to this many papers
consumes a fair portion of paper. However, we believe by making the papers
available, students will become more concerned with environmental issues and
change their habits in the long run—thus more than compensating for the initial
investment. Papers will be
recycled at the end of the day. As alluded to above, by sharing papers amongst
students and staff, the total number of papers that are already purchased can
be reduced through sharing.
Last year, it was arranged with the couriers of the Arkansas
Gazette and the New York Times to deliver to the racks in the
cafeteria. Above the racks will be
a sign asking for people to return the papers to the rack once they have
finished reading the papers. The
program has been enthusiastically approved by the cafeteria personal. Employees
of the respective papers will deliver the Gazette and the Log Cabin
before 8:00am, and with the New York Times, though no later than 9:00am.
The papers will be suspended during times when students are on break. With the exception of the NYT, the
papers will be delivered on the weekends.
The subscriptions can change in the future, with either more papers
being added (pending the demand by the student body) or additional news sources
to avoid a biased presentation of the news. The current choices for papers have been made due to their
dealing with local issues (the Log Cabin and the Gazette) and their high
quality of reporting, as well as the convenience for delivery. With Senate
approval of funding, this program can start next week.
