Campus gift is largest ever [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Campus gift is largest ever New campus computer will reduce dependence on IBM link to U-Park By Tony Perry Capitol Campus yesterday accepted the largest gift from a single source, and by the end of March, the $325,000 computer system should be up and running, according to the chairperson of the Math-Science program. According to Susan Richman, associate professor of mathematics, the computer, an Eclipse MV/10000 is being donated to Capitol by Data General with software for programming, research, and word processing. The computer system is designed for use by the faculty for "research and instruction across the campus," she said. "It is not restricted to any one division," Richman said. The computer is coming equipped with what she called the "standard" languages: FORTRAN, PASCAL, COBAL, AND BASIC. "This opens up the possibility of teaching more and enlarging classes," she said. "It's possible that the engineering faculty through it will be able to do ...

Black enrollment increases [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Black enrollment increases By Don Strausburger A 250-percent increase in black graduate students led Capitol Campus one step closer to meeting the requirements outlined by Title VI legislation. The number of black graduate students rose from 12 in 1983 to 30 beginning the fall semester, according to Diane Edwards, director of graduate admissions at Capitol. Graduate admissions are growing as a result of recruit ment efforts targeted at such places as churches, hospitals and local businesses in addition to Black Student Unions of Pennsylvania colleges, said Vicki Lawson, coordinator of minority graduate recruitment. Lawson also mentioned the importance of making contacts among civic leaders and ministers in the Harrisburg area. On the undergraduate level, black enrollment reached 2.69 percent, which is up from 2.2 percent last year according to Mary Gundel, director of admissions at Capitol. Gundel added that black enrollment at Capitol "will improve as the universityl's bl...

Media course offers excitement [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Media course offers excitement By Maria L. Kent "It's just great! It integrates sculpture, painting, writing, and psychology...! really love it!" "It," in the words of an enthused Linda Murphy, is a unique course offered by the Humanities division, Television Production. "I took the course by accident...it fit into my schedule," the public policy major said when asked why she decided to take TV production. "I never knew...the course even existed. It was a very happy accident." Presently, the student enrollment in the Humanities division is approximately 80 students, of which 40 students are multimedia majors. The multi-media option enables the student to relate the Humanities with technology. According to Eton Churchill, professor of multi-media, Capitol is the only campus that allows the student to have access to all the equipment in the TV production room. Curchill feels that the multimedia program at Capitol is advantageous to the media stu dent for several reasons: •Th...

Provost sees progress here [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Provost sees progress here By Tony Perry and Neil Myers In an interview Tuesday, Provost Ruth Leventhal favorably evaluated her first six months at Capitol Campus. Addressing her three short term goals of beautification, academic strength and community outreach, Leventhal gave the campus high marks in all three categories. "I think the results of [campus beautification] are evident. The seniors are now putting together a class gift. I think that says something. "I think students should be seeing a lot more attention [to their needs]," she added. Leventhal said the administration is trying ease bureaucratic tensions for students. In community outreach, Leventhal said the campus has "gotten a lot more visibility and recognition, and that will continue." Leventhal said she was "really delighted" about the increase in black enrollment here this semester. She said black enrollment stands at 76 students, compared with 51 last year. Commuters, she said, are "a most difficult ch...

PSU tries to retain more black students [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

PSU tries to retain more black students (continued from pg. 1) would allow the schools additional time to continue progress in any deficient areas. - If the legislature feels that a sufficient effort was not made, the school in question will receive a "show-cause notice" in which the legislature requires an acceptable reason to continue government funding. This action is now pending in Alabama. The success of Penn State's recruiting program raises questions regarding another of the Title VI requirements — retention. Currently, 32 percent of the black undergraduates at Penn State graduate, Asbury said. The university must raise this figure to 48 percent by August, 1988 and, as Asbury concluded, "if Penn State did, [the school] would have no problem." "If Penn State [meets Title VI, we] would have no problem." William Asbury exec. asst. for administration There are several ways in which the black population can be kept within the Penn State system. Humanities Division Head...

Vandalism: The epidemic spreads [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Vandalism: The epidemic spreads There is an epidemic at Capitol Campus. It's not the flu, and it's not a social disease (although both may or may not be making the rounds this time of year). This epidemic is human. It's intentional. It's disgusting. This epidemic is vandalism, and the time has come for some swift action to cure it. We're not talking about a broken light bulb or two. We're talking about the senseless destruction of a new and expensive entrance sign. We're talking about ruts in the grass-hundreds of feet of them-the result of students intentionally speeding across lawns to destroy them. We're talking about missing road signs that disappear faster than maintenance crews can replace them, then re-apear in students' rooms. And we're talking about a major amount of damage to a campus facility recently. Some of the perpitrators~if they read this~are by now laughing hysterically that someone would try to criticize them. You get that way after destr...

India's future in doubt [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

India's future in doubt To the Editor: The assasination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by two Sikh extremists raises many unanswered questions concerning India's future with its people and the rest of the world as well. Can Rajiv Gandhi, the new prime minister of India, really preserve the country's unity and prevent undue bloodshed over the next year? Where will India be if the new leader fails to do so? These are the types of questions we need to investigate. One of the most immediate concerns of Rajiv Gandhi is that he must negotiate some sort of truce with the Sikh population as well as the Hundu community to end the bloodshed that is ravaging the country. Presently, 15 million Sikhs represent about two percent of India's polyglot population, yet their commitment for their country can best be examplified from the fact that they account for 15 percent of the nation's total army and an equivalent proportion of its civil servants. The Hindu India is releasing its frustrati...

Holiday spirit [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Holiday spirit By Myra Fink 'Tis the season for finals and term papers. Busy students rush through the halls of Capitol Campus without visions of the upcoming holidays. "Is there one?" Brenda Robertson, a humanities/business senior said, "I can't think about it yet." Then she gathered her books and picked up her coat; she spoke not another word but went straight to studying in the library. Most students can not find time to shop, make a list or check it twice before finals. "I'll wait till after finals to do everything," Rick Davis, a business/health-care management senior, said. "Christmas held a lot of fascination for me when I was younger, then the excitement and novelty wore off and now this is a cumbersome time of the year," said Peter Thomas, a mechanical engineering senior. Increasing commercialism amd an extended holiday season encourage grumpiness, Thomas added. Yes, the bah-humbug attitude seems to be contagious at Capitol Campus. Look at the people in your classes...

Juniors show freshman traits [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 13 December 1984

Juniors show freshman traits By Joseph L. Michalsky The peaceful solitude a sunrise brings will soon be broken. A door is slammed, a hair dryer hums its one lone song, two students chatter about last night's party. It is the beginning of a new set of escapades by students labeled "Delayed Freshman Syndrome" (DFS) by an instructor here at Capitol. Loosely stated, freshman syndrome is the actions or escapades of a student first exposed to dormitory living, particularly prevalent among college freshman or in Capitol's case, juniors. Walking up walls, singing in the shower, blasting music at 2 a.m. all can be classified as freshman syndrome. This freshman syndrome is labeled delayed because many of the students are first experiencing living on their own as juniors, not as freshmen here at Capitol. Clem Gilpin, an instructor in Afro-American studies, feels Capitol's dorm residents along with all dorms at other universities behave this way because of the unique dorm environment....
