INSIDE The Volume VII, Issue 15 Dean Search Committee makes Headway by Hugh R. "Hugo" Brown One of the major campus events of the past semester was not a PCP or any type of performance It was the creation of the new Dean's posi tion and the placement of appropriate advertisement. The Dean Search Committee, co-chaired by Deans Langston and Schenck, and comprised of representatives from both New College and USF worked to the result of producing a pool of applicants to the position All applications for th e pos ition o f D ean of the Sarasota/Ma n atee Campus a n d Warden of New 1 line of January 30 has passed, the D e an Search Committee has swi t c hed i n to th e mod e of proces s ing the applications. According to Torn Barna rd a New College Student Representative to the Dean Search Committee, about 120 applications were received by the end of January, and then pared down to the 90s according to the requirements et forth in the job advertisement. Another job advertisement, writ ten by the students of New College was also attempted to be published. However, this ad was not accepted becau e, according to Margaret Hughes, a New College Student Representative to the Committee, "the VChronicle of Higher Education vdoe n 't accept ads that aren't for the hiring institution." It was Hughes' impression of faculty which whom she spoke that a stu dent ad would not have had much of an impact,at best, upon the applicant pool. Barnard, however, expressed disappointment that the ad was not accepted for publication. "I defi nitely think that the applicant pool would have been larger and perhaps more diverse," he stated. However, Barnard also noted that, ... the ap! see ('DUN SEA$C,H" ON P;iGE 8f girls can't shoot. by Sara Foley A shot of espresso was just what the New College student needed to banish the glazed ap athy from their eyes, if only for a night.

4 The Catalyst Campus News HCL 6 computer lab to open soon by KC McCarthy The long awaited HCL6 lab is scheduled to be open in early March. The student-organized pro ject has been in the works since last summer, and was financed through CIT funds. The lab TAs are cur rently busting their rears to get the lab up and running smooth. The new lab will have many im proved innovations over the old,beloved publications office. The HCL6 lab will feature five Compaq Deskpros, five 5400 Power Macs, and a HP4M+ printer initially, and five G3s, a Umax Astra610S scan ner, and a GCC 1212 printer will be arriving by the end of the semester. Edin Hajdarpasic, a lab TA, com mented that the Macintosh G3s, running at 233 MHz, are approxi mately 30% faster than their Pentium II counterparts," and "are very cool!" So, watch out! Of course, all the computers will College. In the reception area at the west entrance of the building sev-. ra erm are on permanent display, though Mead notes that Isermann may ro tate some her other work into these spaces. The walkway between the buildings is reserved for student art. At present the works on display are a number of acrylics which were painted last semester Mead also points out that the gallery will be used for Baccalaureate shows. Student reaction to the new building has been very positive. Thesis student Heather Oliver was excited over prospects for improve ments in the fine arts program, with the increased working space. "This [building] allows us more lab time without interfering with classes ... right now I'm teaching a tutorial here that I had to do in my have standard word processing pro grams (MS Office 97 and Claris Works 5 .0) and Internet access, but the Macs will also be equipped with CD ROM drives and Adobe Photosbop 4.0, Page Maker 6.5, and Illustrator 7.0 for graphics and pub lishing. Also, the lab will have a Linux server, which wilJ act as both an NT and Appleshare work group server. This will give students the ability to save their work in a remote ma chine. The new lab will have a "No food or drink" policy, so don't even think about bringing your dinner with you to finish your final. The computers will also feature locked extension sets, meaning that the installation of new software will require the assistance of a TA. As usual, students are encouraged to use the old pub office, which will remain open to everything, including graffiti, but theTAs have a dif ferent kind of lab in mind for HCL6. ''The new lab is also ex pected to perfmm the same capabilities, just with faster comput ers and in less Pub Office-esque atmosphere. In other words, the old lab is good, the new lab is better," said TA Hajdarpasic. So, if you have a hard time concentrating in the mess which we affectionately refer to as the "pub office," then it sounds like the new lab will be your speed. Like most things at New College, the new HCL6 lab will be student run and maintained, so if you need help or have a problem (one which concerns the computers) ask a TA. For more information about the new lab or the current computer facilities available on campus, you can visit their web site at http://www.sar.usfedul-mac lab/. photo by liugh llrown The lsermann Fine Arts Building added much needed room to the fine arts department. This will allow more students to enroll in art classes. Although there is much more room inside, the parking lot leaves a bit to be desired. living room as an ISP." Second year Regina Gelfo shares this excitement. She states: "This gives us room to grow as a fine arts program by allowing more students to participate ... the campus is cre ative as a whole, and many who have the will and desire to study fine arts will now have the means." The donation of the Isermann Fine Arts Building represents an other important step in the furthered development of the Fine Arts pro gram here at New College. A lot has changed since Mead first arrived as an instructor with the charter class in 1964 at which time she taught in converted World War II barracks, to the four double-wide trailers sent from the Tampa campus in the mid 1970's, until the present Caples complex was opened several years ago. Mead cannot thank the people who helped to bring about this new addition enough, and would espe cially like to thank the workers from the Physical Plant who, in her words, "worked so hard to make this transition go as smooth as pos sible ... they've been absolutely marvelous!" February 17, 1998 Changes to Teaching Auditorium Being Considered by: Paul "Cheech" Chretien The New College Theatre Project is reviving plans to convert the Teaching Auditorium into stu dent theatre, and is planning an organizational meeting on Wednesday, February 25th by the Ham Center couches at 8:30pm. Renovation of the Teaching Auditorium was first considered by Heather Oliver and Doug McDonald during the Jan. 1996 ISP period, but lost momentum when sufficient funding could not be found. Oliver points out that New College currently has no real the ater space, and the Teaching Auditorium could be converted to fit the need. Completed plans were however submitted to campus ar chitect Rick Lyttle and what is needed are formal plans by alicensed architect and current construction quotes. ac g Oliver states: "At present it serves very little purpose-it is laid out wrong for teaching, has uncomfort able seating, and is usually uncomfortably cold since the adja cent rooms are cooled based on the thermostat which is in the Teaching Auditorium." Converting the teaching audito rium to a theatre will require will require some addition al construc tion. As Oliver points out, the current facility is lacking a number of items necessary for a successful stage production such as; a back stage entrance which would allow actors to enter, curtains, theatrical lighting and prop storage/construc tion area to name a few. Additionally, the Teaching Auditorium has poor acoustics with its concrete floors and brick walls, but this could be remedied with car peting and a fabric covering on the walls. Plans currently being considered by the New College Theater Project will require considerable funding, but much of the propo ed work will rely on student labor and organiza tion. The Theatre Project asks that all students who are now or plan to be involved with campus theatre at tend Wednesday's meeting or contact either Heather Oliver or Jessica Falcone
The Catalyst Entertainment February 17, 1998 5 New College Radio back on the dial by Nick Napolitano After a semester of dead air and organizational difficulties, New College Experimental Community Radio is finally getting back on track, largely through the efforts of newly-appointed Radio TA Helen Matthews. According to Matthews, the problem began last semester when many DJs stopped broadcasting their shows. "Unfortunately, people just didn't take it very seriously and if they were tired or if they had a meeting to do or if they wanted to socialize, then they just wouldn't do their show." This created a lot of dead air, so many people stopped tuning in which in tum caused the DJs to take their job even less seriously since they felt as though no one was listening anyway. "So this sort of cyclical problem developed," explains Matthews, "and it just sort of snowballed." At the start of the semester Matthews was hired by the SAC to helm an effort to recruit more DJs and build up an audience. A former DJ herself, Matthews began by giving current and prospective DJs an orientation in how to use the equipment. She also holds scheduled meetings to keep DJs aware of tile station's goals and to receive input from all involved as to what their goals should be and how best to achieve them. "I'm trying to just integrate them into the whole structure of it," she says. Their main goal for this semester is to increase the wattage. Currently, the station only transmits a frequency well under one watt, which is around the legal limit for an "experimental" station, the designation under which the FCC classifies New College Radio. This translates to a roughly one mile transmission radius. It is hoped that expanding the audience base by increasing the wattage will inspire DJs to be more responsible and more in volved. Matthews hopes that when DJs "go into the studio they will feel like they have an audience." In order to legally transmit more than one watt, the station will have to give up its experimental status and become a non-commercial college radio station. Matthews is currently filling out FCC paperwork to obtain the license and plans on approaching the SAC with a proposal for its funding Matthews believes that these changes shouldn't affect the programming and assures that "we wouldn't tailor the station to the toutside) community." Another important project is getting free COs from the College Music Journal (CMJ). Right now the station is relying entirely on donations from students to augment a small base of records collected by New College stu dents in the late 1970s and early 1980s. "That was our dubious legacy from the previous station," explains Jake Reimer, who is also heavily involved with the radio station. "I think our collection of 70s pop music is unparal leled in the Sarasota area. We might even have to go to an all-disco format." Let's all hope that CMJ comes through with those COs. For those who don't know, New College Radio transmitted its first broadcastings on an AM wire in the late 1970s. According to recent New College alum Josh Tickell "It was very organic, very sort of chill, disorga nized, very wild, very barbaric. Very 70s New College." Trouble came in the early '80s when, according to Tickell, some stu dents "got the idea that they could put a CD amplifier on it and amplify it to about seventy to a hundred watts. Of course when they tried that it ended up broadbanding the whole AM spectrum either below or above what we were receiving on our radios, and that caused massive interference with the landing beacons at the airport." Shortly thereafter, the FAA, FCC, and other men in suits shut the station down, and within the next few weeks USF had it dismantled. Over a decade later the radio station was resurrected by Tickell, who began working on the radio during his first year at New College in 1992. It wasn't until the spring of 1997, Tickell's final semes t er at New College, that New College Radio was up and running again. Despite the lapse of a decade, "The radio is (still) typical New College," says Jake Reimer. "Like you come into the science lab and hear 'the draw back is that this is all from the 70s ... but the advantage is that you can do whatever you want with it."' When asked if the radio equipment also dates back to the 70s, Reimer is quick to amend "No, no, our equipment is new." "It's our relaxed manner that's from the 70s," quips Matthews, with a laugh. "One of the odd and great things about the station is that now it's just free form. You can play what.ever garbage or beauty .you want to p\a'j, Students on a roll with college skate night by Cyndy Ekle Remember the days when going to the local skating rink was cool? Then suddenly after mid dle school it wasn't. I still remember how our moms would drop us off and we would impa tiently wait in line in front of a stone wall that was covered with pink globs of bubble gum.

"Skate night would be a excellent opportunity for the frag mented student body to get together and have fun" com mented first year new college student Dave Nezelek. Stardust skate center which is located at 2571 12th street in Sarasota, right off of 301. They plan to hold a college skate night every night from 9-midnight. It costs $4 to get m skate rental is $1. If you want speed skates or m line it is a dollar more You can of course, bring your own skates. My first vi it to Stardust was dunng 1sp. I had nothing better to do, so I thought, why not? What else would I be doing? My ISP? Once inside we were greeted by blasting music and colorful lights that reflected off of the two disco balls in the center of the ring. There were quite a number of students from New College as well as from Ringling, MCC, and Kaiser College. The music was just as bad as be fore, but at least there weren't any show-offs or Activities at the skate night are: skating (duh) and games involving ... skating. For instance, there is limbo and a game similar to tag where you get to hit people with those soft noodles There's was also a game of tag with glow sticks. My friend and fellow Catalyst staff member Matt Greico and I spoke with the owner of Stardust, Larry Tasman. We had to wait for about a half an hour while three paisans complained about one thing or the other before we could talk to him. Tasman said that most of Stardust's busi ness comes from hockey and birthday parties, so they started college skate night to attract nostal gia-ridden students. "Having college kids-its a fun thing" remarked Tasman. This past Thursday night around 57 stu d ents showed up, and the owners hope more will at tend future skate nights. It is a good chance for One of the great things about college is that you can Roller roo do things that a few years earlier you would not have been caught dead doing. Who really cares if you make a fool out of yourself because you are not the skater in the world? "I think people underestimate skate night because it sounds lame. It's what you make of it. I keep coming back even after I fall and bust my ass. There's no shame at skate night," Jessica Phelps said. So, if you have nothing to do some !hursday night, try college skate night, you may JUSt have a good time.

The White Hou e is an equal opportunity abuser. 40 dean applicants down, 90 left to go l"DEAN SEARCH" FROM PAGE 1 1 plicant pool is sufficiently large, as it is Hughes, said that the Committee "discarded those [applications] that didn't meet the initial re quirements." These requirements included the holding of a Ph.D. in the arts and sciences, and a certain level of scholarship. The types of applicants, according to Hughes, were "mostly people who have been chairs or ad ministrators." The Dean Search Committee was split into two subcommittees for the purpose of sharing the task of reviewing the applications that passed the first round. The subcommittee members were split as evenly as possible, according to Hughes. For example, the New College student or the USF faculty representatives were divided evenly between the subcommittees The review process utilizes a checklist that includes a point system that assigns higher values to more desirable traits. Traits that are evaluated are: teaching and scholarship record; overall record of accomplish ment as a faculty member, with respect to fitness for tenure at USF; record of accomplishment as an administrator; level of academic administra tive experience beyond the level of department chair (e.g. college dean); experience in fund rais ing; academic credentials, with respect to appointability to the faculty of Arts and Sciences; experience in both large and small liberal arts colleges. Each committee is expected to pass about 15 applicants to the Committee-at-large, where the applicant pool would be further pared to 10 to 15 people to be passed to the interview stage. The interview period is scheduled to take place in late March to Early April. In Barnard's as essment 'We are in a pretty good schedule to be prepared to hire someone next year. The members of the Dean Search Committee are open to discuss any concerns over the Dean Search. Barnard admitted, though, "Unfortunately, not many people have ap proached me with specific desires that they have to the position [of Dean]." He also added that students should feel free to discuss matters with him. Hughes and Barnard, for the most part, seem optimistic about the quality of applicants for the position of Dean. They seem confident that the Committee will be able to name final candidates who can effectively erve the needs of our cam pus community.
The Catatvst Campus Life Review: Ani Difranco Little Plastic Castle (Righteous Babe Records) Ever the overachiever Ani has brought us yet another new album to live our lives by. Little Plastic Castle is an interesting record in that it displays the varied facets of both Ani's personal ity and her music. As the album begins, the listener is comforted by the traditional Ani vocal-and-guitar style which suddenly jumps into a ska groove that is com pletely unexpected. Though this style is not standard for Ani, she pulls it off well, never for a moment seeming like a trend-chaser. Little Plastic Castle is followed by the remarkably Lou Reed-esque Fuel. The lead-off ditty Grave/logs in third on the cd. Gravel is pretty much what we've come to expect from Ani, complete with pounding acoustic guitar work and sharp wit. In short, it's a definite hit. Other notable tracks include the Edie Brickell-ish As Is, the autobiographical Two Little Girls, the biting Pixie, and the remarkably intelli gent Swan Dive. Over all, Little Pla stic Castle is well worth picking up, as are most of Ani's records. Ani, of Ani s newest creation has put a smile on both her own fa c e and t he faces o f her adoring fans 1 OV i al spectrum and th i s for the most part is a good th i ng. The only real drawback ofthis album is the somew hat out o fpl a c e realTy b a d porn o soundtrack instrumental section toward the end of Pulse, the final track on the album. So go ahead, buy it. You'll like it, I promise. sac minutes 2.12.98 Att e ndance: (no absentees) Danielle Bab s ky, Michael Hutch, Alisdair Lee, Adam Rivers, Mario Rodriguez, Ropert Scopel, Kelley Singer Vijay.

Remember barter? Like, "heyI'll give you my new Barbie castle if you'll give me your pel let gun.'' Well, for grown-ups today, barter is a bit more advanced. These days, bartering is a kind of trade class1fied by the federal govern ment as a "private currency," and subject to taxes just like cash income. But small businesses and individuals can use barter as a quick way to add to their sales volume by attracting a captive customer audience. All sorts of goods and sen ices are offered through barter. The office walls are lmed with flyers from local restaurants, doctors, carpet cleaners, artists, psychotherapists, etc. offering their services on the barter market There are also all sorts of goods available: artwork, furniture, jewelry, clothing, cosmetics, etc .. In addition, the exchange offers its members special perks like monthly newsletters, marketing tips and consult ing, membership network parties and black tie dinners. The exchange al o provides special lux ury items for members only, like cruises.

Robert Kmght gave a reading of original poetry, including "Variations on the Word Love'' a sarcastic ditty well-suited to the Friday the 13th Valentines Eve. Next, the Jazz Trio went on. Members included Dan Imiazumi, Marc Beverly, and Giga Shane. L ter on, students were treated to electronic music performances by Matt Thompson and Doherty. Doherty produced two short pieces, synchronized with computer-edited video_ The first one. "INSEX" fea tured colorful video loops of copulating bugs. New College students didn't have much to say about the opening, but maybe that was because they were having too much fun singing along to ''Just What I Needed," by BORT, the all B-Dorm Cars' cover band. Enthusiastic C alum Mitch Silverman even joined in on the drum set. "The BORT's are really good" Erin O'Donnell commented-she should know, she is in the band. Later she added that the coffeehouse was "really awfully swank ... almost too nice for us." But people seemed to enjoy the rarefied atmosphere. "It's really airy, it's homey." said opens on a goo Tatiana Sainz. "I really like what they've done with it." "Thank God for a Marri-rot al ternative'' said Robert Rollings. Students didn't bat an eye at plunking down $2.50 for a double cappuccino and enjoyed the performances as much a the am biance. "The Slavic Vocal Ensemble was excellent.'' said Jen Fedor. "Besides the sitting factor, it was great." Manager Heather Lazar, a trans fer student, said she was "totally happy ... everyone is so talented."

The acts were very high quality, and it was obvious from the reactions of the students that the hard work was appreciated. "The turnout has been great," Lazar continued. ''I'm really happy.'' Lazar hopes students continue to use the coffeehouse as a venue for self expression. Small bands, poets, and jugglers (to name a few likely acts) will find a comer stage and video screen well suited to eclectic perfotmances. She invited students to set up appointments with man agers if they want to put on a show. Said Lazar: "This is the students' coffee house, whatever students want, tudents get."
Th Editorial Take a look at the SAC minutes in this issue, and you'll see an inter esting allocation. Acting on a request by state auditors to make all salaries based on a per hour basis, the SAC voted to pay its chair and secretary the minimum wage of $5 .15, but for 40 and 30 hours respectively for the rest of the semester. That works out to $206 for SAC chair Michael Hutch and $154 50 for secretary Alisdair Lee; about a fifty dol lar raise for both positions. Student government is getting more like Congress all the time. According to Barbara Bergren, the SAC controls the salary of all TA's and elected officers, and any change in wage or hours must go through them. But as far as the SAC goes, they can make and approve their own paychecks. This is madness! If we allow them this much power, who knows where they'll stop. Next Thursday, they could vote themselves another pay raise, pick up the check from Barbara Bergren the next morning, and be off to Mexico in the afternoon with the rest of our NCSA coffers! Har, har! Just kid ding SAC friends. The Catalyst doesn't mind how much money you give your selves. In fact, we fully support the generous reimbursement of our hard-working brothers and sis ters on the SAC. Keep on doing a great job!
