Most of the student-family apartments along
Mason Farm Road will open this fall_In the top

New apartments for students with fami-
lies (what used to be called married-student
housing) are nearly complete along the ridge
that rises behind the Smith Center and the
Kenan-Flagler Business School. To be known
as the Baity Hill and Mason Farm Commu-
nity, 398 units will open in late summer to
take the place of the 306 units that made up
Odum Village. They are along Mason Farm
Road and around Baity Hill, where Herman
Baity ' 17, a professor in the School of Public
Health, built a stately house that still stands.
Odwn Village, built starting in 1960, is
being torn down gradually to make way
most likely for expansion of the health
research community. Over the next few
years, Odum will house as many as 450
undergraduates per year as students are dis-
placed by the renovations of the four South
Campus high-rise dorms.
The one- and two-bedroom apartments
will have about one parking space per unit.
The University is spending $80 million
on the apartments and $43 million on the
family housing. Both are paid for with self-
liquidating bonds whose cost is recovered
from rent revenues.

"Pay taxes, go to work, give
to Carolina," said Frank
Comfort (MAT ' 69), head
coach of men's and wonlen's
swimming at Carolina for 28
years."It's on autopilot."
How did giving to Carolina
at the Chancellors' Club level
become one of Comfort's
must-dos? "J want others to
have the same experience I had,
that my children had, that their
mother had and that 28 years of
undergraduate swimmers have
had - an opportunity to get a
Comfort established the Frank
R . Comfort Scholarship Fund,
a full-tuition merit scholarship
for an undergraduate enrolled
in the School of Education.
A planned gift will endow the scholarship after his death.

The Educational Foundation also benefits from Comfort's generosity.
"I give to the Rams Club to give back. It provides the resources that have
allowed me to do a job I've enjoyed for 28 years," Comfort said. He gives to
swimming because,"I just like to help. I don't know that I enjoy anything
more than just helping people. It's what education is about. It's what financial
support is about."
