The Bay Area-based musician took
two of the top Grammy categories —
Album of the Year and Record of the
Year (for "Smooth"). In addition,
Santana captured three awards in the
pop field and three in the rock field.
It was the most Grammys won by a
single performer in Grammy history,
tying the record set by Michael Jackson
"To live is to dream. To die is to awak-
en. Please don't wake me up," Santana
said in accepting his first award of the night for "Smooth."
The night capped a huge comeback year for Santana,
who broke onto the scene in 1969 with the Clive Davis-
run Columbia Records, and launched
his return on the Clive Davis-run Arista.
Other major winners for night
included; Best New Artist: Christina
Aguilera, Song of the Year: "Smooth,"
Pop Album: Sting's Brand New Day.
Alternative Performance: Beck's
Mutations, Best R&B Album: TLC's
. Fanmail, Best Rap Album: Eminem's My
Name Is, Country Album: The Dixie
Chicks, Fly, and Producer of the Year,
Non-Classical: Walter Afanasieff.
The ceremony was hosted by
Rosie CVDonnell who commented on
several artists including Kid Rock, Puff
Daddy and his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.
"This is for all the
people who don't

Santana, a native of
Mexico, said during

Enrollment numbers increased with Killeen addition
The Tarleton "Family"
Killeen (19%) 0 Fort Hood (2%)
Stephenville (19%) .

Managing Editor _
As shown above,Tarleton has
increased enrollment overall with
the addition of the Killeen campus.
The numbers are in, and total enroll-
ment of all of Tarleton's campuses has
Tarleton's registrar, Kim Roberts, waits
until the 12th class day to total up the
enrollment figures because that is the last
day to drop a class without it showing on
a student's record.
After the twelfth class day, it is more
likely that students are going to stay in the
classes they are currently enrolled in and
be easier to count.
The total number of Tarleton students
enrolled on all campuses is up from 5,944
last spring to 7,056. However, the increase
may be misleading. It does not necessar-
ily mean that there was an increase in new
students coming to the Stephenville cam-
For the most part, the increase iri total
enrollment of 1,112 students is due to the
addition of the Tarleton System Center
rather than new recruits.
The difference between the two semes-
ters is almost exactly the same number as
the number of students enrolled at Killeen
Take into account that the number of
freshmen enrolled was down 4.1 percent,
and it is clear what made the difference in
enrollment this year.
The ratios of the types of students is also
significant. The number of undergraduate
students increased by 12.9 percent, while
the number of graduates and post-bac-
calaureate students increased by over five
times that amount -- 70.3 percent
Graduate programs in Stephenville are
still experiencing growth, with 15.8 per-
cent of students in Stephenville enrolled in
graduate studies. On the contrary, almost
39.8 percent of the students in Killeen are
graduate or post-baccalaureate students.
It remains to be seen what impact the
addtion of the center will have on the
main compus in the long term future.

fees and other sources which Giles elected to leave
unnamed at the time. The fee would be $50 per Fall and
Spring semester and $25 for each summer session. The
facility would also be open to faculty, staff and alumni for
a comparable fee. The fees will not go into effect until the
facility is available for use.
Giles noted that due to the expansion of the university,
there currently is not an area available that is large
enough to accommodate the 90,000 square foot facility,
but he has two possible locations that he negotiating to
