Studentsjto: pay $7 more for registration
By Sandy Taylor Beginning this winter term, registration fees will increase f from $10 to $17.50, according to Sally Fyke of the college's business office. C The increase is due to the ever rising cost of paper and maintenance of the computer, Fyke said. John Maus, director of finance, said the cost of maintaining the computer is increasing. "As the Hewlett-Packard 3000 (the college computer) ages, the cost of maintenance goes up." t And the cost has certainly escalated, according to Pat Benekos, director of the computer center. "It's a difficult situation. The computer companies want more money for maintenance agreement contracts due to the age of the equipment." The $7.50 increase will be reexamined after spring term registration, William P. Garvey, president of Mercyhurst College, said. "Registration wjll not go any higher next year. It ma^ evefT'OU adjusTed tfrjp y e a r . ' ^ ^ Dr. Garvey? saldflhe enrollment played a role fn the registration

"The full-time enrollment increased only slightly this year. The largest increase in enrollment occurred with the part-time student. The budget did not correspond correctly with this type of enrollment. Therefore, registration fees-had to be increased," Dr. Garvey said. Lillian Cohen, coordinator of the Adult College, believes; adult students might be hard hit with the new fee. But she agreed thafi services rendered at MercyhurstSare still the number>fone reason adults choose to come here. Unlike most colleges in the area, Mercyhurst does not charge a computer service fee. Villa Maria College charges $25 penterm, while Gannon charges every student $100 for a computer lab fee each year. >, Cohen also said the cost for the adult student here coordinates with the tu ition and fees of other colleges in
the area....;&• fc& ^-afe^" '





On Monday, a blanket of snow covered the * campus grounds. Although lit melted by the end of the week, students were able to make their first snowmen. * •

Votes Tabulated

new reps take office
Nine Mercy hurst||students were elected to serve as representatives of the Mercyhurst Student Government. Four of these new reps won the election as write in candidates. »- Winning as write-in candidates were Laurie Albreht, Management; Becky Babbitt, Secretarial Management; Susani! Trumball, Medical Technology; and John Widecan, Math. J There was a tie in the area of Interior Design. Both Megan Oddis and Janice Young were write-in candidates. According to Elections Chairperson; Jean Weber, there is nothing in the;MSG constitution that provides for such an occurrence. Weber says that a decision should be made by the officers around Thanksgiving about the matter. Representing other departments are Jeanne Mastrian, Dietetics; Mary Beth Orman, Criminal Justice; Chris Sementelli, Sports Medicine; Dean Hall, Business Administration; ^and Mike Burke, Music. * Filling the three Freshmen representative posit ions fare Tim Harrington, Mark McAndrew,?and Maureen Percy. Weber notes that about 50 freshmen voted for their representatives. "There were about six write-in candidates for the freshmen rep positions," Weber said. > fWeber commented that the low response might have been due to the fact?that some people didn't!understand the ballots. She noted; that approximately 85 students voted over the two day election period. A total of about 35 people voted for representativess within their major. -* Pj MSG ,4 President, Patrick Songer, said he was: Pleased that the people we got are interested in government. It's quality, not quantity." Representatives' responsibilities include attending MSG meetings on Sunday nights and serving on various committees within he government. Reps are responsibile to report back to their department with any proposals concerning thefstudents within that deparment. $ Representatives will serve their department until the end of the academic year.

Wiringlsystemfinf™ Old Main inspected
Two fire alarms alerted the Erie Fire Department to Egan Hall last Friday. The first was a false alarm, while the second call was for valid circumstances. Director of Housing and Safety, Phyllis Aiello, notes that whenever the fire alarms go off in the residence halls, there is an automatic ring into the Erie fire department. As the alarms were ringing at 6:30 p.m., the R.A. evacuated the students from Egan Hall At that same time, the Erie fire trucks ^arrived on the scene. The firemen and a Mercyhurst College security guard, Sergeant Marshall Lillie, checked the building and found "no cause" for alarm. f ^ At 8:30 p.m. Myrtis Ashline, a housekeeper in Old Main, notified Sgt. Lillie and told him she smelled smoke. Ashline' thought the smoke was of an electrical nature. f Upon checking the catwalk above the Education Department, Lillie discovered a smoldering extension cord wrapped and strung from «steel girder to steel girder, i Lillie unplugged the extension cord and summoned*the fire department. The fire department checked the area and removed the jcord. *?J Monday morning, deputy chief John Kucinski and deputy Don * Benczkowski inspected the premises. According to Benczkowski, "The wiring is good. I can't see anything wrong now. They did do a good job rewiring." Aiello notes that Egan and Old Main were completely rewired within the last two years. "Here at Mercyhurst, all standards for fire safety are met in the electrical area." * yj Noting that there aresno smoke detectors in Old Main, Aiello points out that there* isnj24 hour patrol surveillance throughout the building. Aiello says the extension cord that caused the mishap |was a: "very old type wire that? had a cloth-like wrapping." t * The director of Housing and Safety said there have been few problems of this nature. "Occasionally we have persons who have become careless with appliances." Such \ occurrences include minor grease fires or hot pots left plugged in. i Aiello notes that residents have not abused the privilege of using electrical appliances. 'There will be no such ban on them as long as they continue to be used in moderation."

Can students still afford to! register?
College costs just can't be beat anymore. Another price increase will affect your wallets as winter term registration rolls around. ii * The registration fee has jumped from $10 to $17.50. The additional cost was printed in the winter term schedule which ^appeared on campus this week. Many students may not have .been aware of the previous registration fee, so the additional $7.50 may be unnoticed. While the additional cost may not be astronomical, the situation must be examined from an overall perspective. In these terms, students are paying an extra $15 to register. £ h ^ Students who are trying to make ends meet are encountering another expense. In addition to purchasing books each term and paying tuition, students are now faced with paying more money to register. This becomes a burden for those students striving for? financial independence. .The extra $15 is a burden to the students but it benefits the registration process. The administration is concerned with. maintaining the computers so efficiency can be retained. Avoiding a price increase while at the same time maintaining efficiency are the two objectives which should have been exercised. i ' However,the students seem to be the ones paying for a miscalculation in the college's budget. Financing Jhe registration process should have been accounted for prior to the academic year, not in the middle of it. It was stated by the college president that the registration fee may be adjusted in the future but students must still pay the additional fee this term.

Conference will be held at Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, from February 24-27th. f£ | Pat Reed, Chairman of the Government Relations Committee, would like to organize a group of eight students to attend. However, Reed has encountered difficulty raising funds for the trip. 1 The costjfor eight students would be approximately $1,886, This cost covers room, board, transportation, registration, and delegation. To supplement the costs, Reed would like to acquire an»* Academic Enrichment Grant. He said he will approach the administration regarding this grant as a source of funding.

Challenging Job
By Karl Beth Kipf |It's the busiest time of the year for A d m i s s i o n s Counselors Tom Dore, Mary Collins, and Elisa Goserud. Lately they have spent long hours on the road recruiting prospective students. p Starting in mid-September, the three counselors spend most of their time away from campus, l meeting with students through high school guidance counselors and attending College Fair Nights. They can rarely be found in their offices during the fall; they will most likely be found traveling around the tri-state area, focusing on such "target cities" as Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and also surrounding communities. ' j . "A buyer's market," is how C o u n s e l o r Tom Dore describes today's! college recruiting field. Dore ^expresses his view about the phenomenal ^change in the strategies and responsibilities of admissions recruiters. "Previously'}, the admissions department served a gatekeeper function, previewing applications and deciding who to accept." 5Today, however, the admissions department has a much more challenging job. Since there are increasingly fewer students, colleges must compete against one another to off e r ; students thetjjbest academic a n d ^ f i n a n c i a l assistance. The students benefitvfrom this because it allows them to be more selective. ,^| While the counselors are not out on the road, they perform? such duties as meeting with prospective students who visit the scnooiTanswerin^Tn^ quiries by phone and by mail, holding informational sess i o n s and r e c r u i t i n g receptions. Overall, the ^admissions office has the responsibility of giving students a good impression offthe collegefand its friendly atmosphere. They also have a big influence in the decision of a high [ school senior. i 3i
