Smallwood Foundation Grant funds new weightroom equipment
Shelly Wright _
EDITOR IN CHIEF
Wesleyan athletes say the new weight room
equipment is an improvement over last year's
The University received a $14,000 grant,
which was used to purchase a Paramount 5000
multi-station workout center, in addition to new
benches, weight racks, mirrors, a stereo and
speakers, bells, weight belts and a security box
for stereo equipment. A mural was also painted
on the wall of the weight room.
Funds for the new equipment were provided
by the Smallwood Foundation, a charitable orga-
nization that provides more than $400,000 a year
to schools and organizations on a primarily edu-
Rick Piersol, senior vice president of Bank
One, the trustee of the Smallwood Foundation,
visited Wesleyan and inspected the new equip-
ment Sept. 21.
Piersol said, "I think [the equipment] looks
great. Obviously it's getting a lot of use, and
"We picked equipment that everybody
can use and went from there."
that's the whole purpose."
Peter Phaiah, director of student life, and
Kathy Walker grant officer at Wesleyan, went to
Piersol's office to request funds for the new
equipment. Wesleyan was selected from a num-
ber of organizations requesting financial aid from
the Smallwood Foundation, and April 20 the Uni-
versity received the money.
Phaiah said the weight room is open to ath-
letes and to students in general.
Phaiah said, "We picked equipment that
everybody can use and went from there."
Dr. Skip Applin, vice president of of student
life and athletics, said Wesleyan is also looking
into purchasing a new scoreboard and bleachers
for the soccer field, and he expects a check to
arrive in mid-October.
Sophomore basketball player Jessica Woods
said the newly equipped weight room is an
improvement over the weight room last year.
Applin said, "It's really improved the fitness
center 100 percent."
MBA student Richard Ahlgren said, "I think
it's a big imrovement from the prior equipment
that we had."

insurance? Or was it because there
were still students out there who
were automatically enrolled
because they didn't know what to
do to avoid it?"
After the Sept. 8 deadline
passed, all students who were auto-
matically enrolled in the insurance
plan and billed $200 for the semes-
ter, were sent letters to remind them
of the charge and the university's
new insurance policy. According
to Phaiah, everything possible has
been done to keep students
informed of the process.
"If students don't want the
$200 charge to their student
account, they have been given
every chance to sign a waiver card
and provide proof of their own
comparable policy. Now we are
giving one more. We know stu-
dents don't want another charge on
their accounts. But the bottom line
is, we are a private institution and
this is our policy," he said.
Cases will be reviewed on an
individual basis and students will
receive written notification of the
decision of the appeals committee.
The committee has already begun
the process of reviewing individual
cases. Decision of the committee is
"We realize that this first
semester will be the most difficult
as far as implementing the manda-
tory insurance policy," Phaiah said.
"After this, it will be automatically
handled during student registra-

what the students want, we'll create
an agenda for the rest of the year.
"My challenge is to keep
everybody motivated. I just want to
improve the organization."
Odom said the organization
will probably hold its meetings at
5:30 every Thursday. While there is
no set meeting location at this
point, he said he hopes to have
