Senate submitsfinal approvalof calendar
By Chris
Kavski
Merciad Managing
Editor^
The College Senate unanimously ap-proved the new trimester calendar re-cently.
\
| This approval
was
the final step beforethe endorsement
by
President Dr. WilliamP.
Garvey,
which
has
been
given,
leaving
the
college a
new
calendar.
.
The calendar, which
includes three
10-1/2 week sessions, was introduced to thefaculty
recently.
Students
will
be expected
to take
three courses
in each
term,
with one
"floating" course.
Since students will
bebilled
in the
fall for this class, most will beexpected
to
take the extra course
in the Fall
Term.
I K
jll"The trimester system
has been
kept toretain the "Mercyhurst advantage" foradult students. With three terms rather thantwo, adult students can overload and finishmuch faster
than
with a semester schedule.Garvey is currently in his eighth year asPresident here at Mercyhurst and has been
affiliated with
the college
for 25
years.Duringhis eight years here, the college has experi-enced a renewed commitment to academicdistinction, while enjoying a record enroll-
ment
of
1,900
students.

Garvey earned a
B.A.
degree from Gan-non University and M.S. and Ph.D. degreesfrom

Mercyhurst professors attendNPS conference weekend
By Brenda LoweMerciad staff reporterThe National Playwright Show-case
(NPS)
sponsored a conferenceweekend on February 12-14 inWashington, D.C.The conference scheduled workshops and lectures discussing theprocess in
 finding,
 developing andthe production of new Americanplays.The showcase was initiated in1913 because there
was
a need forAmerican plays.
"Most
of
the
playson Broadway are British such asCATS and The Phantom of theOpera.
I
feel
that there is a need
forgood
American
plays," said Igor
S
talsky, associate professor of the-atre.The conference was intended bypeople
who
work behind the scenesin the theatre such as directors,producers and actors.The
NPS
is headed by directorPaul Iddings, assistant professor
of
theatre, who brings both a profes-sional and
academic
background tothe program. Iddings has directed,acted and taught in
New
York City,Washington, D.C. and Erie.
He has
directed over fifty productions.
IjFf
Before coming to
Mercyhurst,
Iddings owned
the
first dinner-the-atre in the nation in Williamsburg,Va. and it was there
where
he pro-duced/directed his first worldpremiere, After Dark.*The competition is opened toeveryone and
it is
advertised at col-leges and trade magazines. A totalof
400
to 500 scripts are sent eachyear. The entries are read by twodifferent members of a committee
of 25 and
if
he
play receives
two
yesvotes,Stalsky reads it; if
the
scriptgets two no's, it is sent back to theauthor.
After|
Stalsky reads
the
entries given to him, if they aregood, he passes them to Iddingswho makes the finaldecision.
jj
Approximately 12 plays are
considered
finalists and from them,a minimum of
two
and an alternateare chosen for production.
The NPS is an
exciting conceptin keeping^
with
the liberal fartsatmosphere at Mercyhurst Thegoals of the program are to promoteand encourage good original the-atre, to increase tiie quality of theplays received for consideration
and to
make the playwrights nation-ally known.

frompg.l
"I
think that one thing that
iimpressed
the selection committee
I
was the fact that Chris was a localIperson,"Dore said.
"A
lot of
I
times, local people who don't liveon campus aren't involved. ChrisCuzzola was one of these students
I
that isn't a resident here, he's acommuting student but still finds
time to get
involved."
Dore
added
that
he
believes
Cuzzola
has
a genu-ine concern for Mercyhurst whichwas reflected in his service.Cuzzola is a
Big
Brother in theVolunteers in Probation Organiza-tion, a volunteer at the CampusMinistry, and helped in organizingthe hockey team. "I think what itreally came down to is we wereimpressed at his diversity," Dore
said,
A
i
g$*
Basically, I guess, the grounds
^
for awarding me the service award
is because
of the
time
I dedicated,'
*
Cuzzola said. When a certain re-porter suggested Tom Dore's idea
£
that diversity and the fact that
|
Cuzzola is a commuter mostinflu-
lenced
the committee, Cuzzola re-| plied, '
When
I first came here, I
| wast
a commuter in the strictestsense. I kept my books in my car
| and just went
to class. But everyone|at
Campus Ministry is
a great personand when I got involved with the
h
Campus Ministry the fall of myjunior year, things really startedfalling
into
place. I really felt
like
Iwas part of this school and whenyou feel like you're part of some-thing, it's much easier to get in-volved."It is surprising that Cuzzolareceived the
award*which
coversfour years of service since he trans-ferred to
Mercyhurst after
attendingthree other colleges.
"I was
reallysurprised [that he won the award]especially
when'I
heard the otherpeople that were running. I knowmost of
them
and they're all reallygreat people,"
Cuzzola
said*
'I
would really
like to
thank Sr.Lisa Mary because she and thewhole English Department nomi-nated me, which was really nicesince it's
my
major," Cuzzoia said.Cuzzola also said the award wasgratifying
because
it
was
given
for'
service that was meant to be re-turned in any way.
Cuzzola said he'snotdefinite
onhis plans after graduation, butwould like to stay involved in theMercyhurst
community
and serviceto others. Cuzzola said,'
Whatever
I do it's going to be some type ofservice. I just
know
that
no
matterwhat
I do
next
year,
it's
going to
besomething about helping peoplebecause people
ate
what's impor-tant in the world."

Student feels decisions madefor administration's convenience
Dear Editor,I just finished reading
the
latest edition of
The
Merciad.
My
attention
was
drawn
to
twoparticular articles -
first,
the academic
calendar and second, the
speed bump
article.
This
calendar issue
is getting to be
a
little boring and old
hat We,
the
students,
really
havelittle control over
what goes
on at
this
school. The administration thinks for us.
Being a
senior
and graduating in the
spring,
I
feel sorry for
the
underclassmen
who
mustsuffer under this change in the calendar AGAIN. if *
:
Question:
Why didn't they
leave the calendar
as it
was before
the 1987-88
school year? That
is
basically what
they are going
back
to
anyway.
My theory is that the puppet
administratorsbuckled under
pressure
 from
 upper management
Good
luck,
underclassmen,
and I hope this
calendar works out
if
$
f §§
1
The other
issue
that caught my eye
was
the
speed bump
issue. Your article pointed out thatseveral people of qualified positions disagreed with the speed bumps. Why not ask theadministrators to
investigate
liability insurance and maybe they will eliminate the speed bumps,as they did
the
ridiculous
bottle club
idea for the student union.Maybe
we do have liability
insurance, but
that's not
the point It
has been one thing on top
of another for fouryears,
where
administrators only do things convenient for themselves, notnecessarily
the
students. I like
to
refer to it
as * Mercy
world.''Thank vou for
listening to
me.
Sincerely,A frustrated senior
P.S.
Tell them to
put speed bumps throughout the whole
college
if they are concerned
with
speeders.
I*
I
Dear frustrated: I
agree
that
the
calendar
issue is boring in the sense
that
is seems
tonever
end.
But the "second"
new
calendar which will definitely be put into effect next
year will be
with
Mercy h
urst
for
fiveyears,
m inim
urn.
That
should end the calendar issue.An
issue which will live
on,
however,
is one
that
is
of great concern to
me
and that
is
theapparent lack of importance placed on the voice of the students here at MercyhurstCollege. This calendar may have been put to a vote, but not a school-wide
vote
which Ifeel
is
necessary when a decision of this magnitude is being considered.

I
have come
to
the realization
that]
life
is
not
as it always may
seem. Recently
I was totally
crushed
by some actions by people
I thought
were not only
trusted colleagues,
but also
friends.I worked
and
partied with
these
people.
We went
through good
times and bad
together.
I loved and trusted them and I ended up with many misconceptions of what
riends
 are
supposed
to
be.
\
I am not blaming them because I was at fault
too.
^
We all acted irresponsibly andunprofessionally, but unfortunately
I'm
the one
who suffered the consequences.
lam
notbeingallowed
to
rectify
the
mistakes I made.In essence,
what
I'm trying
to say is
that for
anyone reading
this,
please watch
yourself.
Before you know it,
it may
be
too late to
set
things
straight
Now is the time
of
your
life
to excel in the

will affect
you for the rest of
