(Wednesday, 22 October 2003)
POWER:  Meralco's cut-out fuse and a power fuse at Ateneo's primary line at the Katipunan grid and tripped yesterday afternoon.  Affected were the SDC and ISO complex, Bellarmine Hall, EAPI, JR and the Church of the Gesu.  The power outage at Bellarmine Hall, EAPI, JR and the Church of the Gesu did not last long because they were transferred to the Barangka grid.  To replace the fuse, the Meralco crew had to be called to temporarily shut down the Katipunan grid so both Ateneo and Meralco fuses could be replaced.  Repair work was completed at 10:55 p.m.  Mr. Cesar J. Dawana Meralco's Account Officer is once again acknowledged for his support and assistance

Installation of additional lights at the renovated Rizal Library has resulted in overloading of circuit breakers and feeder lines.  The renovation of Rizal Library and its additional power requirement was done without corresponding upgrading of circuit breakers and feeder lines.

A power outage is scheduled on Sunday, 26 October from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to replace Bellarmine Hall's overloaded transformers (three 50 KVA transformers) to three 75 KVA transformers.  Affected buildings are: 

  1.. Bellarmine Hall 
  2.. EAPI 
  3.. Jesuit Residence 
  4.. Church of the Gesu
COMMUNICATION:  The Campus Network Group (CNG) will install three pilot Wireless Access Points during the semestral break.  These are the College (AMPC) Cafeteria, Caf Upstairs and the area between De la Costa Hall, Social Science building and Rizal Library.  Students with notebooks or laptops can access the internet in these areas at the start of the second semester.
 SECURITY:  A retired Ateneo personnel has been reportedly going around the campus and asking for financial assistance for his medical problem.  He does this regularly and can solicit as much as PhP1,000.00 from several persons.  He brings prescriptions for medicines and shows it to about seven people a day.  Donors are not aware that others have been approached for the same thing.  The community is alerted to be wary of possible abuse in this practice.
Check-free payments of tuition fees for the Loyola Schools through BPI will be in place this second semester.  This is expected to reduce the number of blank checks lost during enrollment.
College Caf (AMPC) customers will also be able to pay for food and goods via BPI Express Teller and Credit cards starting in the second semester.  This should also help reduce theft of cash on campus.
TRAFFIC:  Efforts to make the Loyola Heights campus pedestrian friendly were initiated over a decade ago.  So far, it has not been successful.  Traffic signs and the presence of guards have not discouraged majority of drivers to ignore pedestrians.  Apprehension and sanctions against erring drivers have not reduced the number of reports and complaints.  Reports of near accidents are continuously received.
To make the campus safe for pedestrians and still manage campus traffic, additional guards will be assigned at key pedestrian crossings during peak hours.  The guards will regulate both traffic flow and crossing of pedestrians.  Vehicles will be required to keep pedestrian lanes open and accessible.
PARKING:  The compost site adjacent to the Northwest carpark is now being cleared of debris and being restored to its original size (please see pictures below).  Work should be completed this week.

Guards are also entitled to this reward when they apprehend these violators.
