Mercyhurst College asked the council of NorthfEast, Pa., for $20,000 inmatching funds to start a satellite campus
Jn
the
borough-at
an Oct. 8
meeting.
*
The funds would be drawn from theborough's Marshall Kreft Fund. TheNorth
\
East Council Indicated that adecision would be made by Jan. 1.The proposed branch campus, whichwould be similar to the Corry Center,will have to meet the approval of thecollege Board of Trustees
if
the NorthEast Council grants the requested
funding,
Dr. William P. Garvey, collegepresident,
said.
"If the North EastCouncil's decision Is not an
affirmative
one,
we will not proceed
any
further,"
he added. i

approved, however, the {centerwould offer primarily college creditcourses geared toward the
first'two
years and Intended mainly for adultstudents in evening classes, he added.Most students would be expected totransfer to the main campus."We were requested by several people in North East to make the proposalbecause there was potentially moneyavailable from* the Kreft Fund," Or.Garvey stated.
"North
East is conveniently located and there are nocenters
there,"
he continued. "It is acommunity that
Is
making strong efforts to revitalize itself and educationwould be a big help to that," he added.According to Chris Gagliano, NorthEast native and associate professor of

Gagliano has acted as a liaison between the borough and the college andwould act as the director of the centerif: its is approved, Or. Garveycommented.
Facilities
for the
proposed}center
have been volunteered by North East'sSt. Mary's Seminary, according toGagliano. Based on figures from theCorry Center, it has been projectedthat the center could open between thespring and fall of 1986 with approximately 50 students, she added.
>
"It Is critical to the long-termdevelopment of the Corry Center thatwe have either a larger student body inCorry or a second supporting
center,".
Dr. Garvey
explained,
"if
you are goingto offer long-term associate degree
planning,
you need full-time faculty;but for full-time faculty to be practical,you need a
body?
of at least 250students, which
could
support aboutfour orvJive" faculty members," he
continued.
Since there are presently only
about
100 students at the Corry Center, "theadvantage of a second center for Mercyhurst
Is
that it would make it possible to develop full-time faculty to beassigned to those centers," heconcluded.

"I see the two centers as complementing each other," Gagliano
agreed.
"I think it's very commendablethat the college attempts to meeteducational needs
In
rural areas," sheadded.? "North East may
*
not seem
rural,
but4here
are people there withtransportational and time schedulingproblems who would benefit tremendously from such a center," sheconcluded.

Jim Trocano, SAC chairperson, saidthat 160 people attended the RandyLevin performance sponsored by SAC.This is a
considerable *> increase
in at-tendance compared to other eventsrecently sponsored by
SACJTrocano
also said that SAC will have a specialHalloween showing of "Psycho" and"Psycho II". There will be no Halloween dance this year because of thelack of Interest shown last year.The ad hoc committee formed tostudy the cafeteria conditions is looking to change the
system.
As it currently stands, if you live in the dorm, youmust automatically pay to eat 20 meals!a week in the cafeteria. The idea of acomputerized system was brought up.The system would allow the student
totf
pay for as
many
meals as
he»or she j
wants. Each student would
carry
anautomatic; banking-type card thatwould keep track of all the meals eatenby that student. The student would insert the card each time he or sheenters the cafeteria. Amy Ward,chairperson of the committee, said
that'they
are stilt Investigating theprocess. .

Literary Magazinedue to arrive oncampus in November
in*
By Susan Marcy
I'm
really happy
with
thequality of work,"
said
ChrisChmielewski, managing editorof the Mercyhurst literarymagazine Outlook.
"This
yearwe had twice as many submissions as last year and we havea greater cross-section of peo
ple.
This year's submissionsweren't limited to just Englishmajors and minors,"Chmielewski added.The magazine was supposed to be published last springbut was postponed due to afewcomplications.Chmielewski
explained,,"Last
spring we had a budget for a12 page magazine because wedid not think that the submissions! would exceed theamount needed for 12 pages.Extra money wasn't
avaibleat
the
time
because it was toolate in the year to
Increase
thebudget. We decided to waituntil the fall when funds wereavailable and put out a 32 pageIssue."

i:Due out at
it
he
end ofNovember, Outlook includespoems and short stories written by students, faculty, administration, Sisters of Mercy,and alumni. Students from theCorry Enrichment Center andSt. Mark's
community|
werealso welcome to submit theirwork.The 32 pages of themagazine
will
be printed withmagenta Ink. The cover of themagazine will be done
In

"very
avant-garde."
