New rates will go into effect in Fall 2005. Most dining plans will be increased by $50 per semester. University Apartment rates are slated to see increases ranging from $40 to $80 per month per apartment. Even with the new rates, the cost of traditional resi- dence hall housing will put OSU at tenth lowest in the Big 12. Dr. Bob Huss, director of Residential Life, said the increases are necessary due to higher-than-expected costs for employee salaries last year, higher utilities, debt service and loss of income due to about 500 fewer students projected in cam- pus housing this fall. He said housing officials have worked closely with student res- idence hall leaders to determine appropriate increases that will keep OSU housing in an afford- able range. The department also has eliminated two full-time administrative positions, two graduate assistantships and other expenses, and will continue to review operations to identify other possible savings. Huss said Residential Life and Dining Services do not receive state funding and must pay our mutual goals," Gill said. He said the leadership of the Alumni Association and OSU System CEO and President David J. Schmidly have been exploring numerous ways to more closely align the programs and resources of the Alumni Association with OSU System priorities. Priorities include supporting OSU's new Achieving Great- ness strategic plan, improving legislative relations, increasing the number of alumni partici- pants throughout the OSU System, growing the Associa- tion and enhancing OSU's pres- ence among prospective stu- dents and donors in Ok!ahoma and other states. Included in the resolution passed Friday are several administrative initiatives sug- gested by the Association. These include having the OSU System dining revenue.
