Students, staff mourn

ECU Transit is adding four new buses to its fleet.

New transit buses arrive

Enhance transportation,
aid in enrollment growth


Two of the four transit buses to
aid in transportation services arrived
last week.

According to Robert White, gen-
eral manager of Transit Services, the
43-passenger buses are replacing four
of the buses that have been in use
since the mid-80s.

The replacement is long over-
due,� said White.

Transit Advisor Scott Alford said
the new buses are definitely an
improvement of the current ones.

They are like nothing we have
owned before,� said Alford.
Senior Thomas Jernigan, a bus
driver agreed.
They are a step up from what we
had,� said Jernigan.
It was definitely time for a

replacement, but we are still far from
where we need to be.�

Jernigan said Transit Services
should be on a ten-year bus replace-
ment system.

Having buses from 1983, and
just now replacing them is crazy,
but at least itTs a starting point,�
he said.

The buses came from the Blue
Bird Company.

In the past, ECU purchased buses
from the Thomas Built Buses com-

According to Wood Davidson,
assistant transit manager, Blue Bird
made the best offer. Davidson said
Transit Services developed a speck,
which is a package describing the
features of the bus.

We put the package needs out
and waited for a bid,� said Davidson.
Blue Bird had the lowest.�

According to Alford, the buses
began serving the students Monday.

increase as students choose bus trans-
portation over their own vehicles.

More students are riding the
bus,� said Scott Alford, student transit
adviser. :

According to Alford, in order to
cope with the influx of students
riding the bus, Student Transit added
a fourth bus to the commuter shuttle
route one week into the semester.

We are accessing the possibility
of adding a fifth bus to the commuter
shuttle,� said Alford.

According to Alford, Transit Ser-
vices is also seeing an increase in
the number of students on the off-


campus routes.

We do not have concrete num-
bers for this semester because it is
early,� he said.

Alford said last year, the Student
Transit System had an estimated
760,000 passengers on its regular

ThatTs about 5,000 passengers
a day,� Alford said.

According to Robert White, stu-
dent transit manager, about 45
student drivers are employed to
handle the number of passengers.

A student driver has the hardest
job on campus,� said White. Tt is
very difficult to have to deal with
5,000 students a day.�

According to White, dealing
with traffic can also be a problem.

Wright auditorium fills for
memorial service


Flocks of students, faculty and
staff filled the Wright auditorium to
lift their hearts and offer a prayer to
the victims of the nationTs terrorist

The 1,510-seat auditorium filled

quickly, while about 300 students,

staff and faculty lined the walls,

sat in the lobby and stood outside

listening to a panel of speakers shed

light on the situation.

The memorial service opened
with the display of the colors (Ameri-
can flag) by the Color Guard and the
singing of the National Anthem.

Reverend Robert Clyde of the

Baptist Student Union took the

podium and led the audience in

prayer. Tears ran down some faces,

while other sniffled trying to restrain

their emotions.

A banquet hall, serving area and

Flye said the meeting rooms will be

junior Doug White, a football
player, said the new center will also
help attract recruits for the team.

Recruits usually like to see the
weight room, the facilities, the prac-
tice field,� said White. More recruits

the University of Maryland is pulling
together to show its support for those

According to Morrison, tough
days are ahead for the nation.

We will never understand,� he
said. But we must have compassion
and patience for each other.�

Chancellor Muse agreed.

It is important that we come
together as a community and reach
out to each other,� said Muse. Sep-
tember 11 will be a dark day for the
US, its citizens and friends.�

He said one could never predict
that the United States weuld be a
victim of such a monstrous� act.

Muse said the university must
remember three factors: including
the beauty and sanity of human life,
the fact that we are free peoples and
retaliation is needed.

T donTt believe that any attack
can diminish our spirit or freedom,�
Muse said. We must not coward
against the cowards.�

Jordan Whichard, member of the
ECU Board of Trustees, agreed.

American stands on democracy,
we say, worship and believe as we
see fit,� said Whichard. We must go
about our freedom. You [students]

must continue to experience and

Despite WhichardTs advice, stu-

dents continue to deal with the shock
of TuesdayTs events.

Senior Andre Crane agreed.

~The Mystical Arts of Tibet tours, featuring the famed multiphonic singers of Drepung Loseling Monastery, have taken the world
by storm. Endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a means of promoting world peace and healing through sacred performing
art, they have performed in many of America's greatest theaters and music halls.

Ancient societies throughout the world conceived that ritual performance of sacred music and dance at auspicious times
establishes communication with the higher powers of good and brings about healing on environmental, social and personal levels.

The Mystical Arts of Tibet tour has three basic purposes: to make a contribution to world healing and peace movement through
sacred art; to generate a greater awareness of the endangered Tibetan civilization; and to raise support for the refugee community
in India.

In a spirit of healing, compassion, and unity, the ECU Student Union
Cultural Awareness Committee is providing FREE Admission to this event!

NOTE: Seating will be a first-come, first-served basis. The doors will open at 7:00pm. If you already have purchased a ticket to this program and desire a refund, please present your tickets to the Central Ticket Office in Mendenhall; or
you may consider your ticket purchase a gift to the community to help offset some of the costs associated with providing this wonderful program at a time when it has never been needed more.

service, service that served as much-needed consola-
tion for the so many who are in pain. Students,
faculty, staff, men of the cloth, Greenville
residents and media persons joined together in
memoriam, paying homage to our lost bothers
and sisters.

One couldn't help notice a chilling pride sweep-
ing through the room, uniting us all as American
citizens. Leaders of different faiths joined
together, guiding us in the quest to prevail.
Such a tragic day, yet this memorial service
served as a genuine gesture of recuperation
and healing, lightening up spirits ... if only for
a few moments.

For those who were forced to stay outside,
faculty and staff members immediately gathered
a few religious figures on the steps of Wright

Yes, the events of late are horrific, but the
outpouring of support from this community
is truly inspiring. No matter what mankind is
capable of, love still exists .. both around the

In the last article, | discussed the

various areas (cardio, free weights,

strength machines) contained within

the average gym or fitness facility. In

this article | will be focusing some

attention on helping the trainee

set some attainable goals for their

training program. These goals will

help in adding some specificity to

how, when and where to achieve the

desired training effects.

At the initiation of a good train-
ing program there are some impor-
tant questions that must be asked
by the trainee. The answers to said
questions should help to clarify
what is going to be accomplished
and how. First and foremost among
these questions would be, what is the
purpose of the training? The answer
to this question might take the form
of: training for weight loss, strength,
size, endurance, stress relief, etc. In
any event there needs to be a clear
focus on what is going to be the end
result of training, in order to allow a
clear path to be determined towards
that goal. For instance, if the focus is
on. endurance, strength, stress relief,
athletic performance or other non-
aesthetic goals, then the next step
is to decide which areas of the gym
will be most beneficial (we will
explore this in the next article).
However, if the focus is on aesthetic
characteristics such as: losing body
fat, gaining muscular hypertrophy
(size), or balancing out the bodyTs
proportionality (top vs. bottom,
etc.), then a process needs to be
determined to allow you to see what
you want when you look in the
mirror. This process should include
critiquing your current bodyTs form
to determine what your bodyTs skel-
etal structure and metabolism will
allow you to realistically attain.

Begin the process of attaining
your desired look by carefully critiqu-
ing your physique. Take note of
itTs overall proportionality. Look at
whether your body holds more mass

above or below the waist or in
one area versus another. Take
note of what areas your body is
storing the highest amounts of
fat and in what areas it is most
muscular. This can be done by
simply observing your body in
a mirror, or by participating in
a fitness assessment to identify
the amount of fat your body
stores in certain areas, and your
circumferences. Once this is
done some time should be taken
to focus attention on your bodyTs
metabolism and skeletal struc-
ture in order to understand itTs
specific structural dynamics and
metabolic capacities.

First, start out by figuring
out what type of metabolism you
have. A relatively unscientific
way to do this is to take note
of how quickly you gain or
loose weight, and to what degree
your body tends to store fat
weight. Simply put, those with
fast metabolisms tend to range
from average height to tall, with
smaller (circumference) bones,
and donTt gain either muscular
weight or fat weight easily. Those

Mind/Body Benefits: The Warrior is challenging and therefore
cultivates determination, courage and discipline. Physically, this pose
strengthens the legs, develops balance and gives a wonderful stretch
to the front of your body.

Pose Performance: Position your legs in a strong lunge with the
back leg extended and the front leg moving towards 90 degrees with
the knee directly over the ankle. When everything feels solid in your
legs, breathe in deeply and bring the arms over your head. Continue
breathing as you express Warrior completely, strong in body and

Credit card debt is the most cun-

many college students obtain credit
cards while still in school. Credit
card companies use enticing promo-

approval. All of these strategies
attempt to install the habit of spend-

certain study habits from which all

Time management is always a

This delayed effort would do

sophomore DJ Jarmon came off the

There was a total team effort
shown in this win,� said Head Coach
Devin O'Neill. Several guys came off
the bench and stepped up to really
help the team out.�

The Pirates are playing well, and
they have been able to garnish some
respect in the first few games this
year. The season continues this week
with a road trip that starts out against
Louisville and ends with a match
against Cal-Poly SLO.

So far, injuries have plagued the

The team tried out itTs new forma-

changed it against Charlotte and
ended up being pleased with the way
it worked.

The Pirates are looking to become
a much more defensive team, which
will allow the offense to focus on
their end of the bargain.

We still have a few kinks to work
out as the guys get used to playing
with one another,� OTNeill said. We
have a very competitive team that
will continue to improve throughout
the season.�

This yearTs team is concentrating
on the establishment of team play. A
sentiment that seems to be echoed °

There is no standout on this

Donovan picks
up honors

Senior volleyball star Lisa Dono-
van, following a convincing per-
formance over the weekend, was
named to the Virginia Tech Hokie
Invitational All-Tournament team.
Donovan made 92 assists over the
weekend, an average of almost 31 per
match and 8.5 assists per game.

Defensively, Donovan collected
25 digs, including 17 in the Pirates
win against UMBC. Currently, she
is ECUTs all-time record holder for
assists in a career with 2,972.

Lisa did a really good job for
us this weekend, espécially in the
win versus UMBC,� said Head Coach
Colleen Farrell. She is a very hard
worker and her leadership on the
court is a reflection of her desire
to win.�

Donovan and the Pirates will
resume play on September 18 against
North Carolina. The game will begin
at 7:00 p.m. in Minges Colliseum.

The East Carolinian, September 13, 2001
The East Carolinian issue published two days after September 11, 2001 on which four coordinated terrorist attacks were carried out by the militant Islamic extremist network al-Qaeda against the United States. East Carolina's student-run campus newspaper was first published in 1923 as the East Carolina Teachers College News (1923-1925). It has been re-named as The Teco Echo (1925, 1926-1952), East Carolinian (1952-1969), Fountainhead (1969-1979), and The East Carolinian (1969, 1979-present). It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
