Until mid-fall, the Graham's tall columns supported a big banner, a come- on to the coffee bar built in to the Great Lounge. The word's out now, and the traf- fic in the lounge is such now that no bill- board is needed. Can the Johnston Center pull Carolina back north by itself? Maybe not, but there are plans, and dreams ofplans, that are in league with the move Hardin made. Across McCorkle Place, land has been cleared for the Institute for the Arts and Humanities, which now resides in tiny West House behind Swain Hall. The 13- year-old institute encourages retention and professional growth of teachers in the arts and humanities by making grants that enable faculty to take time off to study the art of teaching. It sponsors a fellow- ship program that shares teaching research with the public. An effective institute can provide the same kind of magnet for fac- ulty that the Johnston Center does for students. The Morehead Building has been identified as an ideal site for showcasing UNC science to the public. A study of the planetarium concluded that by adding interactive attractions and other aspects of a modern museum, it could be a much stronger magnet to non-students. Money for such enhancements is not on the horizon, and the Morehead probably would need to be expanded- but a more comprehensive science center would add vitality to the Franklin Street side of the campus. The Ackland Art Museum is planning a major eA1'ansion. Director Gerald Bolas envisions an outdoor"arts quad" stretch- ing from the rear of the Ackland to Cameron Avenue, including a sculpture garden and other casual visual and per- forming arts venues. This, too, has the potential to attract town and gown to North Campus.

" 1 applied to Duke, University of Chicago, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest
and UNC and was fortunate enough to be accepted by all of

have a stronger focus on strategy.

staff and culture. It's a collaborative environment, and you get
individual attention. 1 know 1 made the right decision."
It's the tiniest office he's had in quite
some time. Classical music plays from a
small radio. The computer screen is black.
