Sessions Hall residents recently had their phones fixed after most of them had been not in working condition for over a month.    At the beginning of the year, signs were posted in Sessions that said, "Notice, we regret to inform you that some telephone lines are not in service at the moment due to maintenance repairs and upgrades." The maintenance work was necessary because the phones in Sessions Hall were routed through the old Main Building originally.  Since the building is going to be torn down next month, all of the phone lines had to be moved into the Leavitt Student Center.

This indicates that more students are taking fewer class hours. Additionally, mining re-training has no enrollment this year because those hours have been shifted to UCAT.
