Filing For Aid:
"We have every application they need in this office and they should come and pick them up," Cathy Crawford, director of Financial Aid recently said of all Mercyhurst students.^ These applications for aid for the 1984-85 school year include forms for Pennsylvania Higher Education'Association grants as well as federal institutional aid forms, which college students are required to file this year.

Now

Cathy Crawford Upperclassmen were previously not required to fill out these forms, but Crawford said that the new requirement will promote less confusion and less correspondence in the financial aid process, r "They should all be filed by May 1," Crawford emphasized. "There will be no late awards this year." i* 1 Howeverj she added, PELL has raised its maximum grant by Si (X), to $1,900. *

In a d d i t i o n , Crawford predicted a possible minor increase in work study awards and higher loan awards. Crawford also printed out that Mercyhurst students have no reason to file a Financial Aid Form (FAF) whether or not they are a resident of Pennsylvania because the state and federal aid forms provide all needed aid information. . "Everything will remain about status quo/' Crawford concluded. "I'm having more money added to the financial aid budget ... but I'm not sure what it will be used for yet*" Crawford explained that students who were recipients of outside scholarships should begin reapplying for them. * Students from out of state who intend to borrow under the state guaranteed loan program should request a renewal loan application. .The application should be obtained from the same bank from which they previously borrowed no later than April 1,1984. Pennsylvania student borrowers will receive renewal loan applications from PHEAA some time in May. The main point, Crawford said, is to file and, most important, to file on time. Students who want more information, or that have questions should contact Crawford in the Financial Aid Office.

Mercyhurst Is The \ College Of distinction \

APIOMO COMPARE t> -TO THIS!J (UtW<~-—

Just as the President of the United States delivers a State of the Union Address each January, so has the President of Mercyhurst College, in essence. In the 35th annual progress report and business review appearing in the Sunday Times News, Dr. William P. Garvey revealed 1983 as an outstanding year of "great strides" for Mercyhurst College. Several topics addressed in Dr. Garvey's report are worthy of mention. He cites that the most important development to benefit? Mercyhurst was the aquisition of St. Mark's Seminary to house the D'Angelof School of Music, Hotel-Restaurant Management program, and the ,new Mercyhurst Career Institute. The leasing arrangement with the center at the top of the hill has expanded the college, created a unique atmosphere to hold events, and provided the music and HRM departments with a building to allow for pratical experience to take place. In addition, the Career Institute's program for the unemployment has allowed Mercyhurst'to receive national recognition. More than 100 Erie adults have gone beyond the 'Hurst gates with training in computer and office technology, retail sales, security guards or as industrial technicians. It is also reassuring to learn that Mercyhurst is not part of rthe trend of decreasing private college enrollments. Dr. Garvey states that Mercyhurst has its highest enrollment ever which surpassed 1,700 students. Last year the college recorde d a high of 1,500 students. The present college enrollment marks a twelve percent increase over last* year. Mercyhurst can be extremely proud of this fact, especially considering this is a time when the national economy and survival of colleges and universities is extremely unstable and unpredictable. . Reaching the end of '83 the college decided to implement a Sports Medicine program for the 1984-85 academic year. This is a time when wellness and physical fitness are important to the body and mind. It is also the year of holistic health at the college as well. To support this fact, the Campus Center now houses nautilus equipment, crew tanks, and a training room for athletic injuries. Lastly, perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of 1984 is that the college is preparing for its first major fund raising campaign to enhance Mercyhurst all around. Looking back on 1983, the college on the hill has achieved many goals. Mercyhurst is truly the college of distinction, and will continue to be in the years to come.

Dear Editor, I would ilike to correctb the following statement made by Dave Robinson in .last week's report on the Mercyhurst Student Government program: "With the Supreme Court decision to take things off the TV set we can take things from PBS and use them discreetly for classroom enhancement." The January 17 Supreme Court decision does not in any way apply to the use of off-air recorded TV • programs for classroom viewing; The ruling only allows an individual in the privacy of his-her home to record television programs off-air. Educators who wish to use programming in a classroom setting must follow guidelines established several years ago. They amay record a program i from any broadcast station, including the four networks, and keep it for 45 consecutive calendar days. The actual showing of the program in the classroom, however, must be done within ten consecutive school days following the date of the recording. The remaining days are to be used by the instructor for evaluation purposes to determine if the program would be a valuable addition to a course. At the end of the 45 day period, the

Dear Editor, After working on SAC since the beginning of the summer, I think it is time to evaluate things. It wasn't until*after last Friday's Gong Show that I realized the apathy of some students on Campus is at-an all time high. Although the turn-out for the show - was better than usual, the performance wasn't as good as it could have been. It must have been pretty disappointing to James Sherrod, after all his hard work, to find that only three acts were entered. I'm sorry, we (SAC) were so naive as to think we could pull off an activity on a night when most students were busy with other things, (partying). As I walked around -campus Friday morning, 1 asked people? what they were doing for die evening, I received answers like, "We're go-

What Happened To Our Social Life'

ing to Gannon;" 'I'm going M home," and ; I don't know." Yet, these are the same students who criticize the activities of SAC. Of course, they don't come to the SAC meetings to criticize, they criticize from their dorm room or from their apartment. jWhat^s'my evaluation of this year's activities? I think they're GREAT.,The few who make up the committee, and who successfully pull-off the activities, are not going to let the * people who don't, participate stop us from having fun. If certain people can't "Seize the Opportunity" to experience college life, and if certain people have to go to Gannon or home to do so, then that's not our problem in SAC to deal with.

'Become Active In The Political Process
•By Gary Keen an

With the announcement by President Reagan last Sunday night that he will indeed seek a second term as President of the United States, the election year begins in earnest. The Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, the initial rounds of the battle which will end with election in November, are only a few weeks away, fe There are currently- eight

Gary Keen an democratic candidates seeking the opportunity to face President Reagan in November. The eight were featured in a debate a couple of weeks ago moderated by Ted Kopel and Phil Donahue. The clear leader among Democratic challengers is former Vice-President*Walter Mondale, who has received endorsements from the AFL-CIO, the N.E.A. and numerous other special interest groups and unions. This has led to the major criticism of the current runner-up Senator John Glenn that Mondale has made too many promises to too many special interest groups to be an effective President. However, Senator Glenn has had trouble in his campaign staff and has been unable to close the wide gap between Mondale and himself.

The other candidates include the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Senator Gary Hart, Senator Alan Cranston, former Senator George McGovern, Senator Fritz Hollings, and former Florida governor Ruben Askew. Reverend Jackson has hailed himself as the leader of the m i n o r i t y groups of the Democratic party who he feels are too large a voice to be ignored. . Senator Hart has attempted to portray himself as the candidate for the younger generation with new and fresh ideas. 'Senator Cranston has made the Nuclear Freeze movement the cornerstone of his campaign. Former Senator McGovern was the party's standard-bearer in 1972 when he lost to Richard Nixon. McGovern has called for party unity to unseat Reagan and has promised to take greater care in choosing a Vice-Presidential running-mate than he did in 1972. Several more debates are scheduled among the eight candidates and can be seen on PBS. These debates will give voters an opportunity to see where the candidates stand on various key issues. * As | college students we are members of one * of the worst voting groups in America. With such crucial issues as student aid, unemployment, Nuclear Arms race, the draft and the peace and security of the world evident in this election, students should take greater interest in the selection of this nation's President. No matter which candidate you favor you should become active in the political process. At the very least you should register to vote and cast your ballot in November. Gary Keenan is a senior Political Science at the college.

Year Of Great Strides At Mercyhurst College
By Dr. William P. G a m y Editor's Note: The following column by D r . William P.

Garvey, president of the college has been reprinted from the Sunday, January, 29 issue of the Erie Times-News 35th annual progress report and business review. Throughout 1983 Mercyhurst College took a number of critical strides by expanding its academic, physical facilities, and enrollment, while also' extending the college's commitment to the creative and fine arts in Erie. The most important development taking the college to the top of the hi])-was a leasing arrangement with the Diocese 4 of Erie which provided Mercyhurst with 70,000 sq. ft. of St. Mark's Seminary to house the D*Angelo School of Music, the hotelrestaurant management program, and the new Mercyhurst '{Career Institute. Focusing on the unemployed in 1983, 'the Career Institute's program offered one year free tuition to more than 100 qualified Erie adults, training them for new careers in computer and office technology, retail sales, security g u a r d s , and I n d u s t r i a l technicians. Mercyhurst opened the 1983 school year with a record enrollment which passed the 1700 mark including 350 freshmen and 60

off-campus students in Corry. Equally gratifying was the third straight ; increase in the College Board scores of the entering freshman class raising the college gain in this area 90 points over 1980. f «r .>

Dr. Garvey
At the same time, Mercyhurst welcomed its first Fullbright scholar, Erilr Borgman, from Holland's University, of Nijemegan, who taught in the Religious education and lay ministry program during the fall term. This program, developed in cooperation with the Diocese of Erie, is the first religious education certificate (program for undergraduates in the Erie area.^ Also over the past year Mercyhurst wrote another glowing

chapter in its town-gown story with the celebration of the arts and 'summer on the hill' series which resulted in more than 50 public events in: poetry, drama, music and films. -; .j Also at the endJof the 1983 came the addition of a Sports Medicine program to our growing number of career majors. The Sports Medicine Program which will be instituted during the 1984-85 school year, is designed to meet the increasing demand for people educated I and trained as athletic fitness personnel and instructors of the principles of holistic health. -The physical; fitness program for the entire college was also greatly aided in 1983 by the addition to the campus physical fitness center of nautilus equipment, crew tanks and a training room for athletic injuries and expanded locker rooms. **s i As 1984 dawns, the college is preparing for its first major capital campaign to enhance student aid, endowment, and academic resources so as to subdue the Darwinian challenges of the 'brave new world' emerging in the decade ahead.

Super Talent On Gong Missing At Show?
, By Laura Ruby * Friday, January 27, the Mercyhurst Student Activities Committee SAC sponsored the 1984 second annual Gong Show, i Three acts were submitted in the event, and I'm pleased to say, none of these three were gonged. I don't know if this was due to superior talent or the fact that the gong was missing, First place went to Lee Barney with a perfect score J of 40. ^Lee performed a "steppin" initiation dance as he "got down" for the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, It was apparent the audience loved him as they chanted his name for an encore, The other two acts both received 33 points and a tie breaker was needed to determine second and third place. The audience, with their intense applause awarded second place lo Tom Buckley, a music student at Mercyhurst College. Tom performed a beautiful song on the acoustic guitar. He even composed the song. Third place went to a group called the "T-Birds." This was the "T-Birds" second appearance at the Mercyhurst Gong Show. The T-Birds include: Paula Suchacek, Ellen Smith, and Cheryl Thompson. Dancing to the tune of GREASE LIGHTNING, the T-Birds showed the audience their version of John Travolta. After proudly receiving third place, they went off the stage yell-1 ing, "wait'U next year." | After the guest appearance by Chuck Barris fell through, James Sherrod volunteered to play M.C. Nice Job James! The judges for the "Gongless-Show" were Gina Dilluvio, Terri Warfield, Maria Santangelo and Joe Filonowicz. Carefully giving thought to each act', they scored each group on a scale from one to ten. The points were totalled, and the winners selected. \. We all know that the Gong Show just wouldn't be the same without, JEAN-JEAN The Dancing Machine. And nobody does it 6 better than Jean Moneski. I'm wondering however, who JeanJean has been hanging out with. Yes, blue*hair and all, The Dancing Machine has gone PUNK! A special thanks should go out to these people who entered the Gong Show. Not only did they have talent, but also the "Mercyhurst Spirit.'' And it should be said that although the audience was kept entertained with'just these three acts, more entries would have made the Gong Show a bigger success. So, the next time an event like this one is held, pull •some of your friends together and participate, or are you afraid of being gonged?

Foreign Students

& By Karen Merkle • Editor's Note: The following story is the second part off a two part series about foreign students at Mercyhurst College. As with many other organizations both on and off campus, the meeting primarily consisted of the presentation of the new constitution and the election of new officers. But when the conversation shifted to talk of the new customsimmigration laws and of, the volumes of identification forms that must be filed, it became apparent 'that these}students have taken their . education a step beyond the 'usual college experience. ^ The year's first meeting of the International Students Club £ on January 27 resulted in the discussion of some important organizational business; but to an outsider sitting in, the, real story is the camraderie that has seemed jj to develop between these students from 12 nations, what has brought them* to Mercyhurst, and the thoughts they have about being in the United States. „While many of the foreign students were ^ brought to Mercyhurst through the tennis team, others have different connections to the school and the area.

He came to Erie in 1979 when he attended Gannon University, and then transferred to Mercyhurst in the winter of 1982. * It's an even more unusual situation for sisters Jacqueline and Thelma Perez from ''Panama. While attending a Catholic high school on an American military base in Panama, Thelma first read about Mercyhurst, in the college's brochure. After graduating from high school, both sisters attended an English language institute in Indiana. There, with women from all over the world, they spent six months studying English. 44 In Latin countries - all over the world really - you need to know English," Jacqueline said. So to further her American education, she spent her freshman year in a Florida college. This is the sisters' first year at Mercyhurst, where they came because of specific majors not offered anywhere in their own country; Jacqueline is a sophomore fashion merchandising major, and Thelma is a freshman majoring in Hotel Restaurant Management. But once the (international students get to Mercyhurst, what

Three Graduates Find Jobs Finding Jobs For Unemployed
i . By Fran Moavero Three graduates of Mercyhurst have become employees of the Mercyhurst Career Institute (MCI). Donna Peterson, Brian Dougherty, and Paul Urbanowicz have been hired by the college to help meet the needs of the unemployed. *" \ ~ Peterson, who graduated in 1983, has been working as a program specialist for MCI since last June. Her colleagues, Dougherty and Urbanowicz, were hired in January of 1984 to assist with the development of the program. Urbanowicz, like Peterson, is a program specialist, while Dougherty is a placement specialist. Peterson is a full-time employee. "The other two Mercyhurst graduates are employed on a part-time basis. ; Within the last year, the Career Institute has grown by leaps and bounds. As a result, the college received federal grant to fund the additional positions. John Nesbit, Director of the Institute refers to the federal funds as a contract rather than a grant because Urbanowicz and Dougherty have certain obligations to fulfill and a job to do.

While Urbanowicz is developing a new training [program, Dougherty is developing contacts with Personnel directors. The 1983 graduate, also a member of the Erie School Board, seeks permanent placement for the students of MCI. Dougherty makes! new -contacts with businesses and consults the personnel directors he has contacted

previously to keep abreast of the new job openings in each company. L*'Brian acts as a report system," Nesbit said. "Through Brian's efforts, we have a better chance of knowing what businesses ] are looking ' for. i We can then customize out people to meet their needs." Dougherty isjjvery mobile. Nesbit said, "Brian is my placement representative. He is out in the community, keeping placement contacts open." Peterson's job is somewhat similar to Dougherty's. She finds MCI students internships within their field of study to gain career experience. Nesbit said about 40 percent of the internships become full-time positions. Peterson also screens the applicants who are interested in the MCI program. This process involves reviewing each individual application and deciding if the applicant fits curriculum. Peterson conveys a positive attitude about her co-workers and her own job. "We all work well together at St. Mark's," Peterson commented. "I want to continue contributing to the development of the Career Institute," she added. * J **

Student Government President ram Assesses 1983-84 MSG
By Martha Camp Editor's Note: The following b part two of a two part series based OB a tape recorded interview on the assessments and views of the 1983-84 Mercy hurst Student Government as seen by MSG President Dave Robinson. Q. If yon had to name the most controversial Issue during ^this year what would it he? So far this year, the tennis court issue caused a lot of problems for some people. But, I think that got a lot of misunderstood publicity. .When the tennis courts were changed into a parking lot over the summer, it was done, one, because it?was the only feasible thing to do at the time and two, because we had a guarantee from St. Mark's that when we leased St. Mark's, we would be able to use the tennis courts up there for the tennis team and for personal use. Well, little things caused the tennis courts at St. Mark's to be locked for the beginning part of the year. Now, they were not being able to be» used, it was just that people didn't realize that if you had gone and gotten the key, then you could have usedjthe courts. But, nobody knew to get the key. So, when people got,back and they wanted to play tennis in the early fall when it was nice out, they went over to our courts and saw cars parked all over. g The thing was, because of our basketball games, we had problems with parking. There was no parking on that end of the campus. So, we either had to buy land and build a parking lot behind the Campus Center or we had to use what we had available. Now, those tennis courts were slated to be ripped up and re-done and the cost between ripping them up and putting in a new tennis court and building a parking lot as opposed to just turning those things into a parking lot and using the newlyacquired tennis courts up at St. Mark's was the obvious .way to go. . 'x Mercy hurst is a college that's run, pretty much, on tuition. So everybody that comes to Mercy hurst pays the costs of running this place. So, anything new you want to do or anything you want to add to, the only way to do it is to pay more money. Nobody wants to pay more money, things tees, Brian Doherty said he didn't want to do the Book Lend Committee any more. He had good reasons, he wasn't getting enough support. •• " ;At the beginning, I thought we would be able to get that entire area down where the Video Room is to build a small room over there to build our Book Store. But, it didn't work out because they had to put the lockers there. '* Well, what we decided was, rather than setting up one committee and having one person with a*few people helping him run it, we decided to make the government itself a committee of the whole. At the end of the year, we'll have a Book Fair. We'll, collect Dave Robinson the books then and when school are hard enough as it is. starts next year, we'll have a stock Q. What has happened to the of books. ••; Book Lend Proposal that was It's hard from term to term to brought before government last do this because things happen so year? fast. But, at the end of the year, .., At the first or second meeting we can set up this spot where you when we were assigning commit- can come and put your book.in.

You'll say how much you want for your book and we'll get your permanent address. The following September, we can run the Book Fair and we can have all the books there. Then people can come in and see what they want and take the one t h a t ' s priced competitively. Q. What goals do you have for the remainder of the year? There's a committee formed to look into the Academic Honesty issue. That was somehting that was started last year. All we did was point out that,they had two different policies printed - one in the Code of Rights and Responsibilities and one in the Student Catalog. -/-, What we'd like to do is see one thing presented to us. Hopefully, that will get resolved. .. ;Td also like to see, if at all feasible, another special project for the spring. We have to look into that yet - to see what's available to us, how our money situation is and what people want.

1984 Summer Session Being Prospective Freshmen Reviewed By Adult College To Visit Mercyhurst
By Barb Gaydos Approximately 180 high school seniors will soon be on campus for the two sleeping bag "weekends coming up on. February 9,10,11 and February 23,24,25. The prospective freshman will arrive on Thursday around 6:00 and leave on Saturday at noon for both weekends. These high school seniors will get a chance to sit in on classes, meet professors as well as students, and be involved in college activitiest such* as "the basketball games or a play. The first weekend's participants will consist ]of students mainly from Erie, Buffalo and Cleveland; the second weekend will consist of students from other recruiting areas; Women attending the event will stay in Baldwin and Egan and the men will stay in McAuley lobbies. It is usually at this time that the women decide where they would like to live should they come to the 'Hurst. Jk Lists of the seniors attending the weekends will be posted in the dorms so that Mercyhurst students can become familiar with the names of any prospective students from their area. * According to Mary Collins, admissions counselor, "The sleeping bag Weekends are good for The Adult i College is polling over 800 adult students regarding everyone all around.

Lillian Cohen, Coordinator of the

Adult College is hoping to refine a summer program to meet the academic needs of those students who enroll through the Adult College Office. • i The poll conducted this week asked such questions as: "Are you planning, to attend Summer school? What classes would you like to see scheduled? What time frame is best for you?" Students will also be asked to respond to a

suggested weekend schedule. Traditionally, such* polls usually bring a 20 percent response. But, Cohen is hoping for a higher return, "because these students are aware we are trying to design a program to serve their needs." The administrators hope to submit a suggested program by midFebruary, aiming for a final summer schedule to be issued in midMarch. ***?
