Jones College has joined Wiess College and Will Rice College in the hunt for new college masters, as their masters Rudy Guerra, a statistics professor, and his wife, Nancy, will be leaving at the end of this year. All faculty members interested in becoming masters will attend a reception at President David Leebron's house on Sept. 29. The reception will allow members from all three of the respective college master search committees to meet and evaluate potentials, Master Search Committee member Chance Marshall said."Right now we're trying to get a pool of faculty to search from, so then we can narrow it down," Marshall, a Jones sophomore, said. "It's a little bit challenging because Will Rice and Wiess are looking for masters . the pool is shared."

Add the Rice Gallery to the long list of recession casualties piling up this fall. In the midst of the KTRU sale controversy and the reality of budget limitations in various academic departments, the Rice Gallery is experiencing a 27 percent decrease in university funding for the Fiscal Year 2011. Gallery Manager Jaye Anderton said that steps have already been taken in an attempt to offset some of the budget cuts. The Gallery has asked for and subsequently received an undisclosed amount in donations from Gallery members and patrons.
