Know Your Lions... [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 8 April 1999
Know Your Lions... Dennis Halaszynski Track & Field by Jessica Tucci associate editor "A very young 'aerobic animal', is how Track & Field Coach Rich Hoffman describes sophomore Dennis Halaszynski. Dennis runs the 3000 meter steeplechase. This is almost a two mile run with twentyeight hurdles and seven water barriers and water jumps. In the first meet at Clarion University, Dennis ran the grueling 3000m steeplechase in approximately ten minutes and fourty-seven seconds. This placed Dennis in the top five runners competing. In the second meet at Geneva College, Dennis improved his time to approximately ten minutes and twenty-four seconds. That is about twenty-four seconds improvement from the first race at Clarion to the second race at Geneva. Coach Hoffman concluded by saying "he is a very dedicated yearround trainer, a good example of the committment and dedication needed to excel, and it is begining to payoff for Dennis."

Spring Fever causes controversy on campus [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999
Spring Fever causes controversy on campus by Ayodele Jones managing editor Spring Fever! Spring Fever! Spring Fever is not only a cra/.e that many experience with the onset of nice weather and the ending of classes, but it is also an annual event held here at Behrend.

Work needed to make Behrend more handicap accessible [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999
Work needed to make Behrend more handicap accessible by Danielle Marshall staff writer .. Behrend is considered to be a campus accessible to all students, whether they're in a minority group or have a disability. All of the buildings on campus are accessible to disabled students. Janique Caffie, Direc tor of Educational Equity Programs, stated, "The Reed Building is accessible from both grounds- the first and second floors. We realize that it is hard for those with disabilities; however, it is accessible. We did a feasibility study. For example, the disabled students can go out of the first floor of Reed and go up and around to the second floor. Based on the financial end and the question of the appropriate location for an elevator, the placement of an elevator in the Reed building is now up for question." The following buildings have automatic door openings: Dobbins, Reed, Otto Behrend, Nick, Academic, Engineering, Erie Hall, Hammermill/ Zurn, and Turnbull buildings. The ...
CORE offers opportunities [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999
CORE offers opportunities by Nicole McGee staff writer A new organization has been introduced to Erie County, and its home base is right here on campus. The Center for Organizational Research and Evaluation (CORE) has been established with the help of an endowment from Mrs. Susan Hagen. Her generous $430,000 gift will be utilized by CORE to aid specificially in research and evaluation services for teen pregnancy prevention agencies. But that's not all CORE will do. CORE can provide services like data analysis, benchmarking, surveying, grant writing, or other research and evaluation methods for any agency. Because agencies do not always have the means or the funding to do this type of research on their own, CORE may become a valuable asset for not only pregnancy prevention agencies, but for Erie County in general. The newly established Erie County Network for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (ECNAPP) will serve as headquarters for the 37 teen pregnancy prevention providers in ...
many for students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 15 April 1999
many for students limited to teen pregnancy prevention, however. Newly-hired Associate Director of CORE, Dr. Kimberly Skarupski claims, "CORE will be spearheading teen pregnancy prevention efforts in the community, but it was developed to offer research skills and evaluative services to local service agencies and industries." Agencies and industries may be calling on CORE for a variety of reasons. Skarupski adds, "Some agencies may want information provided by CORE for their own good, [for example] Why aren't consumers buying this product? Are my employees happy working here? Sometimes consumer evaluation is required by corporate offices. Or if an agency needs funding, we can help them try to find it." The CORE staff is presently made up of Dr. Kallgren, Dr. Skarupski, and Senior Research Technologist Jennifer Pelkowski. Because CORE is a brand new center, the staff is small, but they plan to do more hiring in the near future. Four students are also currently working with CO...
