At a sparsely populated forum Wednesday afternoon, UH administrators outlined proposed fee increases that, if approved next month by the UH System Board of Regents, will take effect beginning in Fall 2003.

A Dartmouth professor noted in her essay "A Village of 100 People Representing the World" that if the Earth's population were shrunk to the size of a village composed of 100 people with all ratios remaining the same, 70 villagers would be unable to read and only one would have received a college education. Each student on the UH campus is that one villager, but some students have faced greater institutionalized odds than others in order to get here.

This weekend features several premieres of films for all audiences to enjoy. A potential Academy Award nominee, Black Hawk Down, will be released next to Disney's latest production, Snow Dogs, with a Roc-A-Fella product, State Property, rounding out the list.

The UH women's basketball team dominated Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, beating the Islanders 78-50 on Wednesday night.
