    Student Union
The Fishbowl is where it's at...
EMU: activity center, meeting place
By STEVE McCAULEY
Of the Emerald
Meeting friends, studying, lounging,
skylight dining, woodworking, photography,
ceramics, printing, bowling, billiards, free
information, club sports, free music, hous
ing information, the offices of the Oregon
Daily Emerald, and more. That's what the
Erb Memorial Union Building (EMU) offers
to students. The EMU functions as the heart
for student social and recreational interests
on campus.
The food services occupy the bulk of the
first floor in the main building and in the
planning phase are a delicatessen, a pizza
and quicky hamburger stand and the tradi
tional soda bar. Plans for an ice cream shop
by November are also in progress.
Operating on a budget of more than $2
million annually, the EMU is one of the
largest employers on campus. It employs
up to 300 students and is funded by student
incidental fees and income generated by
some of its own units.
The new addition to the EMU, consists of
three angular levels, which wrap loosely
around the eastern edge of the original
building. The main floor, centered around a
spacious lounge, contains ASUO and af
filiated offices, a forum, meeting rooms, a
day care center, housing information and
the Crafts Center.
The Crafts Center provides well equip
ped working space for ceramics, photo
graphy, jewelry, woodworking, graphics
and fabrics.
Roomy lounge and study areas dominate
the second floor of the addition including
the main desk, which provides a sundries
store, ticket counter, key duplication, film
developing, lost and found, check cashing
service and information.
From the roomy study areas of the sec
ond floor, a gently sloping system of ramps
winds up the the third floor, which consists
of the Skylight cafeteria and the Century
meeting rooms, ideal for luncheon meet
ings or group get-togethers. Appointments
for use of the meeting rooms are provided
through the offices on the mezzanine.
The mezzanine, between the first and
second floors of the main building, holds
most of the EMU Business offices.
The main building, now in its 25th year of
operation, features the “Fishbowl"
cafeteria and the main cafeteria with a patio
and extended wings of food services, the
International Lounge and the Ballroom,
where receptions, dinners and entertain
ment are often provided.
Adell McMillan, EMU director, says the
summer beer garden, a program in which
beer was served in the cafeteria patio this
summer on an experimental basis, proved
successful and may continue through the
school year.
On the basement level of the original
building is the recreation center, club sports
program center, print shop and the Outdoor
Resource Center.
The recreation center houses 16 new
bowling alleys, 16 billiard tables, table ten
nis, shuffleboard and pinball machines.
Quick copy service, thesis and disserta
tion printing, reduction, enlargement and
binding are all available through the print
shop, which also has a photocopier near
the building entrance.
Aside from the food services, the first
floor also features a television room at the
southwest end of the “Fishbowl” where
students can unwind watching their favorite
shows A branch of the U.S. Post Office is
also located on the north end of the first
floor.
On the second floor one will find the bar
bershop lounge, where students can sit in
barber chairs and study, just lounge around
or chat with friends.
The Oregon Daily Emerald offices and
facilities are located on the third floor, along
with ESCAPE and other offices providing
student services. The offices include
MEChA and the Iranian, Ethiopian, and Af
rican Student Associations.
Students who want to get a better feel for
the building can orient themselves with the
EMU Building map, centrally located on the
first floor on the north side of the elevator.
Regular building and office hours are
posted on every entrance to the building.
Information service is also available for the
daily schedule of events at the EMU by
dialing 686-4636.
Still ne«d a place to live?
Dormitory and University Inn living is designed to be a meaningful part
of the university environment.
There may still be a few rooms available for fall term. So while you are
thinking about the advantages of living in the dorm, come in and talk to one
of the friendly dorm representatives at Carson Hall for further information.
Even if we do not have space for this fall, you can get information for winter
and spring terms when you are REALLY ready for a change.

i You have a place in
\
the Emerald
The Oregon Daily Emerald, the student
operated, student-published, newspaper at the
University of Oregon, will be publishing five
times a week this fall, winter and spring. Mon
day through Friday.
As a student newspaper, we always are in
need of more help. You can provide that help.
And you can help in any way you want:
• If you like reporting, we need you — for
best coverage, general assignments, or both.
We especially would like persons who would
like to do “people” type reporting, examining
people as just themselves, what they think, why
they think it. Also, copy editors are welcome.
• If you’re a photographer, or would like to
learn, we need you to cover a wide variety of
day assignments and spot assignments. Also,
we need people who are capable of producing
feature material, stuff that photography pages
are made of.
• If you like sportswriting, we need you to
cover spot assignments and feature stories.
• If you want to sell ads, we need you to
apply for several ad sales positions still availa
ble.
And the positions are all open — now.
Some of our jobs pay in both money and
experience. Some just pay in experience.
Students who have been working in col
lege journalism, who have gained experience in
the field and who have gained experitse —
through combinations of experience and train
ing — are ready and willing to offer you training
and assistance.
You don’t have to be a journalism major to
work on the Emerald. You just need an interest.
On whatever area of the newspaper you’re in
terested in — reporting, photography, advertis
ing — the Emerald has a place for you.
If you’re interested in becoming part of the
Emerald come on up to the office, 3rd Floor of
the EMU.
(The Emerald is and Equal Employment
Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities
are encouraged to apply.)
