Snack Bar Service 'And Attitude: A Public Joust
Ed. Note: This is the second of a two-part series dealing with the Mercyhurst snack bar. This week we look at the service and attitude aspects of the operation and the community's reaction to , by Linda First \ "For the time and effort the HRMA students put into} the snack bar, it's too bad they aren't more efficient." | Responding to comments, such as this one by senior environmental studies major Craig Brooks, The Merciad decided to investigate service and attitude factors that may be influencing student and faculty reaction to the snack bar. J $••*'* In interviews with numerous student and faculty members of the Mercyhurst community, one feeling appeared to rise above all others in their: opinion of the HRMA-run facility. That feeling was one of discontentment. ^ "I think they've set themselves up as a fast-food type of service without the personnel or techniques to handle it in that fashion," commented Dr. George Garrelts^ off the Theology department. *& $ Others were more direct in their comments. Expressing dismay over, the service of the snack bar, senior accounting major Bill Cain said "I feel like mailing in my order before I come down because it takes so long to get just a cup of coffee." But not *everyone shares the negativity. Mike Milligan, a senior elementary land special education major, remarked "For what I buy at the union, the prices are fine and the service is no problem." Senior accounting major Bob Tobin joined Milligan in his feelings toward the snack bar saying "I feel they have a good menu and the people that work there are cooperative in my dealing with them.'' i > *1rtH| Snack bar supporters such as Milligan and Tobin turned out to be exceptions rather than the rule, however, as customers continued to find fault-with the student food vendors. | and Ernie fZmylinski, were specific with their indictments. Citing* the attitudes of the workers as being cold and uncaring, both stated that they wished the ! ladies? currently working for the college food service, were running the snack bar again. "These people give you the impression that they're doing you a favor," stated Zmylinski in reference to the current snack bar employees.;"-C going to be a big difference in attitudes of those who treat the position as a profession and those who treat it as a part-time job." He went further in explaining this point by saying "A student's primary purpose is to study. Therefore it's? reasonable to assume that ^a :part-time job would take on secondary importance, whereas the snackbar was of primary importance to the ladies/' Stating that the short-order nature of the snack bar makes it a difficult position for anyone to step into, Crouse felt nonetheless that the snack bar is a learning experience for the HRMA which the customers are paying for.

In an interview with Keith Crouse, manager of KC Foods and former manager of the food service that was in charge of the snack bar, The Merciad was told that comments about^ service Two students, GaryfJohnson were} not i surprising. "There's

MSG Solicit Muscular Dystrophy »i a Funds Through Battle The Reps
The student government voted to pit the female representatives against the male reps in a contest to solicit funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at the February 25 meeting. The body decided against last weeks proposal of asking the men nd* women athletic teams to collect money. The government contest will use the same format as was proposed at the February 22 meeting, with each vote costing a pre designated amount of money. The contest is scheduled to begin Spring Term. | "From my own < perception," concluded Vice-president JoAnn Alexander, "I like this idea better."! T j .

J The contract, made to Bob Conklin and Bruce Miller, stipulates that the money be returned May 1, 1980 without interest, that both Conklin and Miller are required to replace the money if it is lost or stolen, and that MSG has the option of taking the money back if any misuse is j discovered.

College Senate Votes To Change Graduation Requirements
Calling for changes in graduation requirements,* the Mercyhurst College Senate met Monday to alter requisites currently listed in the catalog. The first item of business involved a reformation of the requirement calling for completion of 45 credit hours, including at least 15 in the major program. Citing the fact that this requirement did not accomodate those majors with 45 or more required credits, the Senate voted to change the item to read that students would have to have completed one-half of the total credits in the major rather than the number 15 currently listed. Dealing with the subject of withdrawal from a course, the Senate voted to reduce the alio ted seven-week period to six. It was stated that students withdrawing in8this period wouldlhave the course deleted from their academic record. s>; It was added that students who wish to withdraw after the start of the term would have to receive the permission oft the division chairperson and the dean. Students granted permission will receive oiWP (passing) or WF (failing) for the course. Stepping up the grade average for course overloads, the Senate voted unanimously to change the 2.0 requirement to a 3.0 grade requirement. ^Stating* that students normally experience falling grades regardless of their grade point average when they overload, Millar rationalized that the burden of passing would not be as heavy on the 3.0 student,Tutorial studies, once open to all students, were limited to those students who have achieved "junior" status. The unanimity of this decision was influenced by Bob Meyers shows his mastery in the art of illusion at the Ma gic Show held last Friday.

A Participative Plus
Taking a democratic grassroots approach f toward responding to student needs, the Mercyhurst Student Government will be taking their act*to the students as they conduct a survey on student response to the proposed 4-3-3 calendar change. The survey marks a refreshing change to normal MSG procedure which in the past depended upon sporadic representation and a "come-to-us" approach I in dealing with students not involved in the student^ government. By going to the students instead of waiting for them. to make | the first move, the government is taking positive steps j toward ? restoring collegiality in the student body. The true test the MSG faces, or will face, is whether^or not they will continue mis practice once the survey has been completed.' In the recent past documented' student feedback has been called upon in only three instances - the 1979 student government election, the presidential evaluation, and the student petitions to the presidential selection, and program review. J J Presidential selections and program reviews are not annual; college faculty and administrators are gratefully aware of this. Therefore, the only recorded soliciting of feedback is usually the student government elections.. During the week of campaigning candidates for various offices, the fulfilling of student needs is a major issue. This week the student government will be making a strong attempt to at least identify them with their survey on intersession.

Parent Supports 'The Merciad', Garvey
Dear Editor: L* I want to take this opportunity to commend you and your staff for producing what I, as a parent of a Mercyhurst student, feels is a fine campus organ. I particularly like your aggressive spirit in dealing with campus issues and feel certain that students and faculty share my compliments. I think you did an excellent job in dealing with the selection of a new president at Mercyhurst. The coverage of the story and the backgrounds of the candidates put your readers in touch with some very --important tissues revolving around who would lead the fHurst into the '80s. Indeed, the coverage was a big .plus for The Merciad because it was a no-nonsense approach to important issues for the students and faculty.»Your information was not public relations puff pieces which many campus publications have a tendency to lean toward. It's important that such issues as the election of a college president be a serious and forthright undertaking, by the campus (and other) media. The Merciad handled the story well. I was interested for obvious reasons, as I'm; sure other parents of children at the 'Hurst were interested, in the selection of a new president. While reading the strong and weak points of each of the candidates I got the feeling that the board made a wise choice in making Dr. Garvey president of Mercyhurst. I don't know Dr. Garvey, but as I read The Merciad's review of his credentials there was one point that made him a standout. He was quoted as saying something

As can be seen on page three, The Merciad is accepting applications^ for the position of editor for the 1980-81 academic year.

It should be noted and emphasized that one need not be a communications or journalism major to apply for the position.

to the effect that the job of schools of higher learning is to make students think. That philosophy is extraordinary, I think, in a day filled with educational trivia. Dr. Garvey is certain to produce fine results as president of the 'Hurst, for his promise to make his students think is somewhat of a unique proposal. I was also happy to see that the board at Mercyhurst did not select a president whose major achievement was raising funds, a major boast of some of the other candidates.

Controversy Sparked At Pitt, J H M ^ r e a B B S ^ : ^ v % ^ ^ £ . ^ § ^

Is Overnight Dorm Visitation Safe?
«After a review of campus security precautions in the wake of a brutal murder in a dorm laundry room last year, the University I of Pittsburgh has officially reinstated dorm visiting hours regulations. Under the new rules, most overnight visitations will be prohibited. Pitt had abandoned hours regulations nearly a decade ago, but a January, 1979 murder of a Pitt coed "clearly piqued our concern for safety," said Mary Ann Aug, director of Pitt's news department. * i 3, * When Pitt*, administrators announced in early February that they proposed to prohibit non-resident visitation after 2:00 a.m., some students protested the university was attempting to exercise too much control over students' personal lives. Students went so far as to hire their own lawyer to represent them during subsequent administration discussions about the proposal. At Mercyhurst the.' visitation hours are from 1:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on weekdays and from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on weekends. s Aug says :that students have greeted the final regulations, adopted February 12, and due to become ^operational spring quarter, much more calmly. I The regulations d allow overnight visitations on weekends, after the visitor registers with dorm advisers. Relatives can sleep over during the week, when all other non-residents visitors must leave by the 2:00 a.m. curfew. Even during weekends, residents must get roommates approval before entertaining overnight guests. ' "We just wanted to give • over-visited roommates an opportunity to say no." Aug explained/ B The university wants to make no moral judgments," she adds. "But we do need a program that allows us to sweep the dorms, and allows the students to know that whoever is there belongs there." Dorm security became a hot campus issue after the 1979 murder. Aug reports that student concern intensified after At was discovered f*that the 'murderer suspect, implicated in at least four other Pennsylvania murders, had been a dorm resident's regular guest. :VV».; ':: rv*A ^"Logistics were also becoming a problem," Aug adds. Some female residents reportedly complained that men were in the women's showers in the mornings. I te^lfc This marks the first time since 1971 that Pitt has imposed dorm hours. That's when the University, following a national trend, dropped its policy of in loco parentis. The policy, which means 'in parents' place, charged college officials with overseeing students. moral and social activities as parents K But the new 'open hours' policy made dorm security difficult. Aug claims Pitt has "spent 3 'hundreds of dollars' trying to protect dorm residents from 1 intruders, i iPS JS&x y Some students are apparently more willing than others to trade open hours for better security. As one student told an ABC television news reporter when the hours proposal was first made: "It doesn't make any difference to me because I don't have a girlfriend anyway.i f

College Presidency :| A!Job Nobody Wants
Lot Angeles, CA (CPS)— When University of Southern California President John.* R. Hubbard announced in November, 1978 his intention to resign, a number of people associated ?with USC frankly saw it as an opportunity. The announcement capped a year of internal and sometimes embarrassingly-public turmoil of proposed Aran funding for USC's Center of Middle Eastern Studies. Changing presidents, it seemed, would be a chance, to wipe the publicity slate clean and purge USC's t academic reputation of all hints of|compromise. jjf g Now, a little more than a year later, that dream of redemption has turned -into another administrative and publicity nightmare. For USC, after Aformally reviewing hundreds of names and candidate, can't: find anyone willing to take the job of leading it. Though it courts the spotlight and has consequently created the most widely-known failure to fill a vacancy in higher education, USC's )frustrations are -hardly unique. Filling the top job at all universities has become extremely difficult The University of. Houston had * to look eight months for a new chancellor. It took the University of Colorado six months to find its new president. Observers now estimate six' months is the minimum needed*to find an appropriate willing candidate and to navigate the candidacy through internal political waters.

FEBRUARY 29, 1980

Sporty is a mythical freshman writing home in the Spring of 1980. 4 * Dear Mom and Dad: 2 Well any day now we should have the ground breaking for the new 'Old Main' and the new 'Zurn Hall' I must say that the Erie 'community, and for that matter the nation, really responded to our calamity back in February. To this day, though, I question if events had to go the way they did. As I recall, it was January when the school got all the thermosats fixed and started its policy/ requiring an ambient temperature of 65 degrees. Since you never went to a high class college like Mercy hurst, Mom and Dad, I'll explain that an ambient temperature of 65 means that the average temperature in an entire room should be 65. Well here at Mercyhurst our heating system is so old it was created before the discovery of fire. So, some large rooms with an ambient temperature of 65 might also have small sections where the temperature hit 55 and others where it was 70. In some class rooms half the class was disrobing and giving their clothes to others who were entering early hypothermia 1£ Needless to say, but I'll do so anyway, the Mercyhurst community fought back. Students in rooms put ice cubes on thermostats, others tore the instruments off the wall. But the great calamity of February 29 came about because of the faculty. 7? . Our faculty will protest at the drop of a white paper. As they froze out they decided it was an administrative plot to get them to work harder to stay warm. So they struck back. On February 28, they bought up every space heater in town, on the 29th they staged faculty heat-in day. They

Late Trek,Pays Off
Even through adversity, the Mercyhurst women's basketball team kept their winning streak alive as the!Lakers defeated Westminster and Allegheny for Keystone Conference victories. Trie first contest almost never came to be as the Titans of Westmister waited for the Lakers to arrive, and the Lakers waited for Westminster to arrive at the Campus Center. It turned out that both teams scheduled the contest as a home game. Trekking down to New Wilmington, the Lakers were ready to play. $ Starting out of the blocks quickly, Mercyhurst used a solid blend of offense and defense to stake themselves a 33-17 lead at halftime. The second half proved to,be a different ballgame, however, as the Titans outscored the Lakers by a 37-24 count in the second 20 minutes. It turned out to be too little too late as the Blue and Green held on for a 57-54 conference victory. " Both teams tallied 24 field goals with Mercyhurst outscoring their opposition from the line by a margin of three, 9-8. Tricia Mahoney hitfor22 points, while Joan Podolinski rounded out the double-digit scoring with 10. Taking their act down to Meadville on Tuesday, the Lakers raised their season record to 10-5, 4-1 in conference play, wi|h a 63-54 win over the Gators at the David Mead Fieldhouse. Once again the first half proved to be the winning difference as the Lakers charged outtoa 38-25 lead. Allowing the Gators to tighten up the margin by four points in the second half, they coasted to a ninerDoint win.I For the second game in a row Mahoney led the 'Hurst cagers with 22 points, all of them coming In the first half. Debbie Chilcott and Chris Tomzcak followed her with 18?and 11 points respectively. $ t JrtS Mercyhurst finishes its campaign with two Keystone Conference road games, the first being at Thiel (who defeated the Lakers earlier in the season) and the finale being at Geneva College. & J f
