Advertising rates are available for both on-campus advertisers and those who are off-campus.
"The right-hand tool bar is really our connection to the community," said Burnie. "These are the
links that we want businesses, students, faculty and staff to use to connect with us."
Kelli Lamers, faculty adviser to The Rambler, said she hopes this, as well as having the publication
itself online, will increase readership.
"Mavbe students who spend a lot of their time online will read the paper even if they don't read the
hard copy." she said. "In addition, it's now only a click away for interested alumni."
Although in its beginning stages, the staff hopes the site can grow.
"This is a good start, and Colleen and Shawn did an amazing job," Lamers said.
The two were classmates in Dr. Linda Carroll's Web writing course that was taught last spring and
created the site in a team project with two other classmates.
"It only made sense to have a Web site." said Poling. "We had to pick an organization for the group
project and we saw the need with The Rambler
The site was designed with Macromedia Contribute, a software program that makes the confusing
process of building a web site much simpler.
"We're totally open to suggestions to make the site better or more user friendly," said Burnie. "We
really just want people to use it."
The site can be accessed at www.txwes.edu/rambler. The information and communication technol-
ogy department is also working to put a link for the paper on the campus' main page.
Although the construction of two
new buildings is the most obvious on
campus, most students will also notice
the renovation of the Wesleyan book-
store. Beginning shortly before winter

featuring the TWU ram and logo (long-
sleeved $30, short-sleeved $20): as well
as various other gift items.
Students were treated to a grand
opening special Jan. 23 of 20 percent
off their gift purchases. A commemora-
tive ribbon-cutting also took place
where refreshments were served.
"Sales have improved tremendous-
ly since the change," said store manag-
er Paul Simpson.
Finding books, however, may still
have its kinks.
"The inside [of the store] was nice,
however, trying to find my religion
book was still a little confusing because
it was placed in the philosophy section
and that section is not labeled unlike
other major subjects," said senior
English Brittany Long.
The bookstore reconstruction was
not all that was new this semester; a
new policy was implemented for stu-
dents receiving book vouchers. In pre-

Employees said that some students
have complained of not knowing in
advance about the new process,
although there were flyers posted on
campus. Some complained that the
process is time-consuming, while oth-
ers said it actually saved them trips
because the voucher is the correct
amount the first time.
"I believe that there is a more profi-
cient way for the bookstore and
cashier's office to work together on this
matter," said senior Julie Davis.
The new procedure was created by
the cashier's office in order, employees
said, to make things more efficient for

said Roark. "Each school would have their own person that would report to the
dean and would be responsible for alumni relations and development."
For example, projects such as an expansion of the dining facilities would be a
university-wide project that Jeffcoat would be more involved with, whereas a
new technological aspect of the business building, the theater, or scholarships for
students would be the responsibility of the school-based development officer.
This officer would be in charge of both developing and retaining relations with
future and current donors.
"When Gary elected to leave, that gave me the opportunity to re-think this and
make certain that's the direction I want us to go and allow us to continue to com-
plete the projects that we set for ourselves in the beginning of the year," said
A decision will be made between now and June, when the fiscal year starts,
about staffing those programs. Jeffcoat said questions such as "What additional
staffing will be necessary?" or "Can the current talent perform the duties with
further training?" will be addressed.
"We have just retained the services of a fund-raising group in Washington,
DC.," said Jeffcoat, "a firm that specializes in working with federal funds, either

Bill Bleibdrey, senior vice president of finance has been working with this par-
ticular group, as is Roark.
Jeffcoat will also appoint Roark to be his staff person on this as well as other
projects. She will work directly with the federal and state governments and
deploy Jeffcoat where he will be most effective in government relations. By
doing so, she will be able to tell Jeffcoat precisely what he needs to be doing.
According to Jeffcoat we have the pockets of success already.
"I think by elevating our exposure to national groups and putting Wesleyan out
in front of various agencies," he said, "we might be more successful than we
