No Class


University of Oregon senior Stephanie Ramey wanted to sign up for a calculus class, but she says she was told by university officials she couldn't because she is white. That class is one of several where the first 10 of 18 seats are reserved for African-American, Asian-American/Pacific Islander, Chicano/Latino, Native American or multiracial students. White students must arrive early in the morning of the first day of classes and meet with an adviser before being allowed to take any remaining slots. University officials deny there's a quotas system at work. The say the classes are designed to make minority students more comfortable.
