Congratulations to Karin Andriolo (Anthropology) on her recent reappointment to the position of Director of the Honors Program for a three-year term. Bill Vasse (Academic Affairs), in consultation with President Roger Bowen, accepted the recommendation of the Honors Advisory Council, acting as Search Committee for the position. Andriolo and the Council would like to encourage faculty to submit proposals for Honors seminars. Questions regarding the required proposal format will be answered at x3933.

Current events
New Paltz students with visual impairments now have access to radio transmitted readings of local and national newspapers, popular periodicals and books. The College has acquired five radio receivers from WMHT Educational Telecommunications in Schenectady, whose program, Radio Information Service for the Print Disabled, transmits the readings. Eligible students may borrow receivers free of charge from Disabled Student Services. This has been made possible through the cooperative efforts of Will Robedee (Campus Media Center) and WMHT.

A lot of green
David Smith, Harry Lynch and Arnie Bernardini (Physical Plant) have developed a plan for the site directly north of Wooster Science Building and east of Jacobson Faculty Tower which will enable the College to both preserve paradise and put up a parking lot. In addition to protection of existing vegetation at the site, the blueprint calls for additional shrubbery, new benches, a kiosk and brick paving to create a highly landscaped perimeter for the twenty-four space lot on the north side of campus. It has been designated for faculty and staff in an effort to keep motorized activity in the area to a minimum, though an evaluation conducted at the end of one year will determine whether the lot is being utilized maximally or should be redesignated. Landscaping is nearly complete already, and paving, striping and signage are planned for the summer, so the lot will be fit for occupation in the fall.
