Library Collection Reflects Growth [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986
Library Collection Reflects Growth Growth has continually been the key word in describing the Penn State University at Harrisburg library. After one year of operation, in 1967, the total collection already numbered 10,300 books and 566 periodicals. By if the growing collection was the good news, the space it occupied was the bad news. By 1972, with the collection at 60,000 volumes and 13,000 periodicals, the space allocation was critical. Areas used as work/study areas for students and library staff alike were fading. In an effort to alleviate the problem, in 1973 the library expanded to use space in the adjoining Academic Affairs Office. Head Librarian Dr. Emerson Jacob commented at the time that this would be helpful for another two years. His concerns were not addressed again until 1978. With 130,000 books, and the library bulging at the seams, the board of trustees approved $280,000 to add 5,000 square feet of space. The addition, a pre-engineered metal building was to b...

Area Experienced Life-Threatening Events [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986
Area Experienced Life-Threatening Events Over the past 20 years this area has been the victim of three major incidences-two natural and one technological. Both had great but opposite impact on the campus. The natural disasters brought people to us while the human mistake drove them away. Hurricane Agnes struck the Harrisburg area with all its fury in June 1972. After 48 hours of continual torrential downpour, people willingly left their home for higher ground. On June 22, Penn State at Harrisburg was contact by Middle town Civil Defense and Lower Swatara Township Commissioners asking for space for an evacuation center. With only a limited staff and handful of students on campus awaiting graduation on June 24, Norman Gantreau, manager of food and housing, set up the center. Serving over 1,000 of the displaced people, the school turned to the community for help. Businesses, including Pantry Pride (food store), Twin Kiss, McDonald's and the Big M (discount store), donated every...
Rock Festivals Drew Thousands [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 August 1986
Rock Festivals Drew Thousands Woodstock is a legend. Even if some of us don't remember when it actually happened, we've heard enough about it in succeeding years to be able to conjure up a vision. In May, 1971, two years after the historic gathering, a group of campus students formed a social organization called "Good-People Productions". Through their tireless efforts, along with the support of Jerry South, dean of student services, 12 hours of music was provided to an impressive audience of 15,000 people. With the stage located in front of the Olmsted building, people were sprawled all over the lawn listening to the 12 bands who donated their time. By 1972, the festival grew to around 25,000 people. Again the free festival offered 12 hours of entertainment from groups from Philadelphia and Washington as well as Central Pennsylvania. For several years the concerts flourished, gaining momentum as word of mouth spread. But by 1976, the rock festival fever began to fade, and s...

Drop in Parking Fees Not Related To Tuition Rise [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 September 1986
Drop in Parking Fees Not Related To Tuition Rise By Denise Reinas Penn State at Harrisburg dropped parking fees for all students this year. The past fees, fifteen dollars per semester for full-time students and ten dollars per semester for part-time students are no longer in effect. But, parking stickers are still a necessity. Bursan Donald Plourde, addressing questions by students pertaining to the dropping of parking fees affecting the raise in tuition, clearly stated that the two had nothing to do with each other. One reason for no longer paying a fee is Capital Campus has an adequate amount of parking. Another reason is University Park has now granted Penn State, Harrisburg its own maintenance fund. Previously, all parking fees were put in a fund at University Park for maintenance of roads and parking lots. Hence, because we were granted our own fund, parking fees are no longer necessary. Dr. Ruth Leventhal, Provost and Dean of Penn State at Harrisburg has been trying to...
SG A Goals set for this year [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 September 1986
SG A Goals set for this year By Lukf Hoss Student Government Association President Jeanette Brinker plans to make some key changes during her term at the Capital College. These changes will not only benefit students of the 1986 1987 period, but will help to strengthen SGA for future student populations, she said. Many commuter students at Capital Campus are not fully aware of the need for their involvement with student organizations. Others feel that student clubs are directed toward resident students only. President Brinker will seek to gain greater interest and involvment by the commuter students. Academic changes and improvements at Penn State, Harrisburg are sometimes the result of decisions made by the Faculty Council. This counsel made up of faculty members meets several times yearly to discuss problems and make recommendations relating to academic affairs. Student Government should be actively involved with this important area. The Brinker Administration will strive t...
WNDR Comes Alive [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 September 1986
WNDR Comes Alive p,\ Ltlkt Ul'sa An exciting change at Penn State, Harrisburg is its newly renovated radio station. Construction at WNDR during the past year included placing new accoustic panels in both the con\ro\ and news room. Custom - built cabinets have been purchased to file a variety of radio prod'icu'ons. The broadcasting equipment at WNDR became ineffective due to much wear. This resulted in low morale among the WNDR student organization, eventually leading to the team's termination. A list of modern equipment to place the station in operation has been prepared by Jon Pinchot, chief engineer of WPSU at University Park. This can be ordered when a new team of students becomes organized to effectively operate the station. New equipment is needed for WNDR to serve its purpose of informing students and faculty, promoting campus activities, and creating a more dynamic atmosphere at Capital College. WNDR is presently located on an A.M. band, transmitting on a carrier curr...

SGA In Session By Luke Hess and Sharon Qlrostead The first general meeting of the Student Government Association at Capital Campus was held September 2,1986. The SGA budget for the 1986-1987 period contains $50,000. Student clubs who submit budget requests will receive allocations according to availability of remaining funds.

Elections will be held Wednesday and Thursday, September 24 and 25. A vote was taken and passed to keep Mike Turk as SGA parliamentarian.

New Degree Programs Added to Curriculum [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 17 September 1986
New Degree Programs Added to Curriculum By Jan Travcrs Three new degree programs have been added to the curriculum this fall. A study by University Park identified a need for a master's degree program in recreation and parks. The program, offered through an effort of the Capital College's Division of Behavioral Science and Education, and the University's College of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, is geared to people in this area who already are in the business, according to Diane Edwards, director of graduate admissions. Currently 19 students are enrolled. To accomodate their work schedule, only two evening courses per semester will be scheduled. Three options within the program are therapeutic recreation, which leads to National Council for Therapeutic Recreation Certification, management and administration of parks and recreation facilities, and commercial recreation. Tremendous growth in the number of computer science students within me past 10 years has led to...

Task Force Identified Alcohol Abuse Problem Areas Bryce Jordan University President Early in the Spring Semester 1985,1 appointed a Task Force to study alcohol use and abuse at University Park and in the local community, and to make appropriate recommendations. In November, 1985, the Task Force presented its final report to me. I subsequently met with key student leaders and approriate administrative staff. On May 1, 1986,1 released a policy document which clarifies existing University policies that govern the conduct of students and student organizations with respect to the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages. In reviewing the policy document, I noted that the University disciplinary system and the Student Code of Conduct apply principally to on-campus students and student organizations. Neither the disciplinary system nor the code of conduct applies to off-campus student activity, except where such conduct is determined to have a substantial adverse effect ...
