past Tuesday, at least ten Bowdoin students were initially refused
the right to vote by Town Registrar Pauline Brillant when they attempted
to register as Maine citizens in Brunswick.
According to Brillant, the students asked her
questions regarding residency that intimated that they were not
interested in becoming residents of Maine, but, rather, only wanted
to use their Maine residency to vote this past Tuesday. "Students
were making statements to me that they only wanted to register as
Maine citizens so they could vote in this one election," commented
Brillant. Several students were alarmed when Brillant
informed them that they could be arrested for voting as Maine residents.
financial situation encourages growth

Board of Trustees has proposed a new set of initiatives designed
to improve both the financial status of the College and the reconstruction
of buildings on campus.
According to the October 21 Board of Trustees
meeting, financial situations at Bowdoin have improved over the
past year. The College’s bond rating has improved, and its budget
balanced for the ninth year. Because of this, according to Chair
of the Student Executive Board Jeffrey Favolise ’01, “It is now
easier for the College to borrow money, since we are doing better
with our financial affairs.”

response to student concern about a recent spate of towings, Director
of Security Bruce Boucher admitted that there is “room for improvement”
in Bowdoin’s current towing and parking policies.
In the 1999-2000 academic year, Bowdoin Security
towed a total of 165 cars; since September of this year, it has
already towed over 106 vehicles. Security has also issued over $7400
worth of tickets and has received over $13,000 in student permit
registrations so far this academic year.
According to Officer Richard Yanok, who oversees
parking enforcement within Security, towing will increase as the
year goes on.
