Senate accepts* new core proposal
By Naomi Romanchok The Mercyhurst College Senate passed the proposal for an addition to the foundation core requirements. The class, Research "and Analysis in Literature, passed £ in the Senate by a vote of 13 to 1. The Senate {also requested the Academic Policies Committee to review the number of core courses currently required and also to consider the Tnumber; of credits necessary for graduation. The passage of the new core requirement will not affect any students currently attending the college, but could be implemented with next year's incoming freshman class. The proposal also awaits - approval of the administration. m The Senate meeting lent itself entirely to the proposal submitted by the English department on February 14. Most attending | senators seemed to find a need for such an additional course in the c u r r i c u l u m . .Attending senators brought up specific points and problems of the proposal. Many members brought out the problems of students fitting the extra course into already hectic schedules, the being overloaded with double majors and the problem of adding another core requirement.) Extra personnel and classroom? availability were also mentioned, g ^ c *As shown by the final vote, the senators seem to feel the need for; such a course

outweighs other such problems. \ \ Dr.j Bud Brown, College Senate President, was "pleased" with the proposal. It took more than two Senate meetings of discussion on the issue and its impacts. According to Dr. Brown, the Senate could have [talked "through more specifics or passed the proposal and then dealt with particulars.

The campus is alive with news this week. First of all, congratualations to the new student government officers; Dave Armstrong, Matt Whelan, Karen Komisarski, Mary Beth Tripp and Jim Trocano. It's nice to know there are still a handful of students willing to Seize the Opportunity. | < * jj i * The other four candidates who gave it their best shot should be commendedsfor trying. It's these students who will continue to serve as representatives of MSG. The government still needs participants like you. The opportunity to "Seize the Opportunity" is still in the air. It is still possible to become a leader. The Merciad and MSG need you. Currently, letters of intent are being accepted for each organization. The college newspaper iss seeking individuals to fulfill the positions of editor, assistant editor and business manager. It is usually assumed that these applicants have to be Communications majors. Sorry readers, that is a myth. Anyone can apply. W A Many students on the staff donate their time to this publication but they are not Communication majors. Grant it, this is an experience for the majors but art and business students are also essential to the operation of The Merciad. ,3 : I » MSG is also seeking letters of intent for department representatives.

Dear Editor,
While? most of us* are just beginning to think about spring cleaning, the maintenance crew has been cleaning, remodeling, and repairing Mercyhurst throughout the winter. These ever present, seldom acknowledged men and women spend their working hours c l e a n i n g our classrooms and halls, painting r o o m s , | a n d d o i n g the necessary repair jobs around campus. During our vacations at Christmas, spring break, and Eastern the cleaning crew Is busy scrubbing offices and dorm lounges and remodeling offices and classrooms. The new wallpaper in the cafeteria, cleaning the lawns after the usual Mercyhurst weekend party, the education departPRflAniBw curriculum library. and the paint, paper, and scrub job in Campus Ministry are recent works. | ^ \ Many of the men also often work overtime during the winter plowing snow from our streets and sidewalks. When most of^us had the day off because of the storm in February, the maintenance crew was hard at'work in the 4 bitter cold and snow. From Campus Ministry and the entire Mercyhurst Community: Thank you, maintenance) Gena Kost

search of a perfect society
I was approached by Naomi Romanchok to write an article about the adventures of being a foreign student. Well, let me tell you, it is not an adventure. But being a'foreign student has allowed me to perceive things differently about myself, my country (Egypt) and the people around me. It gave me a chance to hear different opinions and accumulate different experiences which has helped Ho shape my way of thinking. It all started five years ago. I was so excited about coming to the United States to continue my education. I was told by* friends and relatives who visited the U.S. how advanced it is. Some even speculated that ;the U.S. is at least 50 years more advanced than Europe. • .J jsjm2 1 I I started forming an image of the perfect society. I even thought that could be the promised land. I s j j £& Nor flong after| all these dreams I arrived to the United States. On my|way from the airport!to my uncle's apartment in New York, I was great" ly ^disappointed.

However this problem lasted for a couple of years until I learned the English language. I also found it very hard to get accepted by peers, but that also lasted for a short period. I think these problems existed with foreign students until they adapt ?tof|the American way of life. Though I had a hard time, I had a good time when I was traveling in the United States. I visited many cities that I read about. I also made many friends that I'll never forget. Those friends were*very supportive and helpful. After all, this might be the promised land. | | Finally, I realized that the perfect society that imagined, does not exist.
