Apartment construction on schedule by Susanna Jalosky Collegian Staff Writer Early in the fall of 1986, construction of new on-campus apartments commenced. In an interview with Mike Ryan, head of Behrend's Housing and Food Service, he stated that on-campus housing is very critical. There are presently 825 enrolled on-campus students with a freshmen waiting list of over 150. The newly constructed apartments will bring that figure to only 920 on-campus students for '87 Fall enrollment. The need for more on-campus housing exists on other branch campuses such as Altoona and Mont Alto where the need is urgent. Behrend is only a portion of that major need. Director of Operations, John Ream, says that there were some delays due to the weather, however the construction is progressing nicely. Heat installation and other interior progress is being made. The 24 new apartments should be completed by July 1, 1987 and all new apartments will be ready for students the Fall of 1897. When ex...

Barton holds weekly Stress Workshop by Sherry Kanzius Collegian Staff Writer Every Monday at noon, a small group of students regularly attend a Stress Workshop available to Behrend students in Lawrence 15. The group is counseled by Dr. Louanne Barton, who has a Ph.D. in mental health. The setting is an informal one as students and Dr. Barton freely discuss such topics as time management, relaxation training and exercises, and how to develop interpersonal relationship skills. Most of the discussions, however, revolve around questions and answers about how to reduce the stress a person experiences in his or her daily life. Dr. Barton is not a newcomer to Behrend. Previously, she worked as a part-time counselor and educator of stress management class. Dr. Barton has practiced mental health for over 25 years, so she obviously has been exposed to a lot of knowledge in her field. Presently, Dr. Barton also works as a counselor at the Hamot Mental Health Outpatient center after finis...

Stream I 1 of Consciousness Insecurity by Paul Sarkis Collegian Staff Writer "Hypocrisy is the most difficult and nerve-racking vice that any man can pursue; it needs an unceasing vigilance and a rare detachment of spirit. It cannot, like adultery or gluttony, be practised at spare moments; it is a wholetime job."—W. Somerset Maugham I have a story to tell. Not being very much of a raconteur, I usually don't like telling stories. I have a feeling, however, that many of you have stories of your own that are very similar to mine. This is unfortunate because mine is a story of the injustice that is often dealt to the students of this college. This is a story of apathy, misinterpretation and unconstitutionality. This is the story of my $350.00 parking sticker. I would also like to convey a symbolic meaning in my story, for it represents more than my personal case of injustice. Rather, it is an example of a trend of unfairness and hypocrisy that has made a mockery of Behrend Secu...

Weddington more realistic The recent debate between Sarah Weddington and Phyllis Schlafly afforded the student body an opportunity to hear two opposing views on the current status of the gender equality in America. Not only were the two speakers on opposite ends of the political spectrum, they were also very different in their methods of delivering their message to the audience. Ms. Weddington appeared to be the more realistic speaker. She listened patiently to questions, and analyzed Mrs. Schlafly's remarks expertly, revealing inconsistencies. (That is, until Schlafly asked her tc stop.) Her arguments were logical and supported by facts. She did not lose her composure for a moment during the long, heated debate, but remained respectful and firm, even in the face of Mrs. Schlafly's obvious distortions of truth. (In an age of presidential "disinformation", we dare not call them lies.) Schlafly aroused audience support in a less subtle fashionthrough by-now-familiar conservati...

Debate crowd unreasonable We went to the Weddington vs. Schlafly debate with open minds. We were willing to listen to both standpoints impartially (impartially as possible), and come to a conclusion based upon the arguments given by oui distinguished guests. However, it didn't seem like the majority of the Erie community graced Behrend's presence with the same willingness. We noticed that most of the citizens wouldn't even consider the opposing views. They couldn't appreciate another's opinion. Some people went as far as to yell disapproval to the speakers. These same people couldn't awaken from within their own narrow, older world and generation to even imagine a newer world. This world could be complete with the emergence of an equal society tolerating less discrimination against any human based on sex, religion, color or creed. These people are unaware, or maybe uncaring, of the "new" rising generation of women capable and desiring of independence and equality with men. Wha...

Let_'s Talk by Pastor Ray Sines Collegian Staff Writer Thank you, Michelle, for your bravery, boldness, and for being concerned enough to write your article on "Greek Life." Even though, I'm quite sure, that all sororities and fraternities on campus do not fall into the category mentioned, my hat is still of to you for the stand you have taken and for caring enough to state it. I went to the Schlafly vs. Weddington debate last week, where I heard 'opinions' discussed which varied from one extreme to the other by the two speakers. The Erie Hall was packed with both students and faculty members. I could hardly wait to hear the comments by the Behrend students which were present. Sadly, not at all to my surprise, less than one percent of the students present was concerned enough to comment. WHY? I have often heard individuals say, "When I get around to it, I am going to do this or that" or "When I get a round to it, I'm. . . " Pastor Ray Free of charge, 1 have provided a round ...

Not everyone is cut out for Greek Life We are writing in response to an article in your last issue regarding Greek life on campus. As non-Greek members, we found the article to be ludicrous and completely untrue. First of all, not all people are cut out for Greek life, and only the individual can decide. Also, we think that the particular exmember should have looked into her sorority before pledging. Sorority dues, pledging activities, Daniel Gozzard and other functions are a fact of Greek life and it is naive thinking that this should not happen. If Ms. Grasmick considers walking backwards to class hazing, she should visit Pitt where survival means becoming a member. It may be true that the only side of Greek life people see are the parties, but that may be because that's the only side some want to see. Gregg Burns

Schlafly irritating, incorrect I was thrilled, but not suprised ai the attendance at the Weddington/Schlafly debate. My contention that Erieites are astute and politically aware was validated. Student Affairs and Jamie Grimm should be congratulated for providing this excellent program. Schlafly was, as always, irritating, incorrect, irresponsible, and impeccably groomed. One wonders how Mrs. Schlafly managed her nuclear family, which includes six children, while she handled a law practice, traveled widely, ran for political office, served as a Reagen appointee, and wrote ten books. When was the last time you baked cookies, Phyllis? I felt Ms. Weddington presentee her views clearly and with conviction. Her manner was professional, polished, and enviably patient. She is very sharp. I would like ver\ much to see her as a candidate foi office—the oval office. Linda M.

Greeks reacted angrily It is unfortunate that in a society that prides itself on our rights of free expression, a person who voices an opinion must endure unjustified social ridicule. I couldn't help but observe that Michelle Grasmick's letter concerning Greek life was greeted rather poorly by campus organizations. They obviously did not agree with Michelle's views and their reaction was one of angry indignation. I hope that the Greeks realize that such behavior is self-condemning and only supports what Michelle had to say. I don't necessarily endorse either the views of Michelle or of the Greeks, but I do believe that everyone is entitled to their own views, in speech and in pi int. . . with discretion and objective maturity.

Pledging takes time Swallowing the basic repugnance I felt regarding Michelle Grasmick's viscious attack on Greek Life in the last issue of the Collegian, I would like to take the opportunity to address some of the charges that she has put forward. Initially, I would like to recognize the obvious fact that Ms. Grasmick may have legitimate complaints stemming from her extremely brief tenure as a sister of Sigma Theta Chi (a local Behrend sorority). Whatever personal difficulties she experienced is irrelevant to the fact that her article was greatly misguided if not libelous. Ms. Grasmick states that not all rushees will be deemed "worthy" to pledge. This invokes images of elitist groups of students handpicking future members of their exclusive cliques. While it is true that all rushees may not be given a bid to pledge her vision of this process is completely askew. During rush week certain functions such as dinners and socials are held for the purpose of introducing the rushe...

Greek Life brings friendship and family This is my fourth attempt at writing a response to the "Letter to the Editor" featured in the last edition of the Collegian. I'm sure you know the letter-it was the one that referred to all members of Greek life as "dregs of society." In my first three letters, I offered defenses to each one of the assertations made in that letter. But, I feel that people have a tendency to believe what they want to believe, and all of the defenses in the world won't change that. So, I decided to discard the others letters. Instead, I would just like to offer a few thoughts on the matter. First of all, I'm sure that everyone has heard at one time or another that what you get out of something depends upon what you put into it. This is true of everything, including Greek life. If, for example, a member of the organization only attends parties, then naturally that particular member knows of nothing but parties. In order to know of other things, the member...

Clearing some misconceptions I would just like to start by saying that Michelle's letter dated Feb. 12, 1987 and titled "Priorities of Greek Life Under Fire" must have been a personal gripe directed toward Sigma Theta Chi, or else just written to cause discontent among the Greek organizations here at Behrend. Nonetheless, My Grievance is that it wasn't only directed toward Sigma Theta Chi, but also at all Greeks as a whole. I would like to clear up a few of her misconceptions. First of all, speaking for Kappa Delta Rho and Alpha Sigma Alpha, the two national organizations, are strictly prohibited from hazing. Page tweleve of Kappa Delta Rho's Bi-law book states: "Hazing is indicative of weakness in a chapter's organization. If memebers find it necessary to haze in order to get pledges respect, they 'ain't doing something right! '" I can't speak for Sigma Theta Chi or Sigma Kappa Nu due to lack of knowledge of their constitutions, but our feeling is that hazing is kid's stuff. ...

Spiteful attack on sorority I am writing this letter in response to the article in the last issue of the Collegian, written by Michelle Grasmick. That article was nothing more than a spiteful attack on a "valid" organization, of which she is no longer a member. The organization under fire in her article is Sigma Theta Chi, a local Greek faction which is very active in many areas that Miss Grasmick is completely unaware of. The only invalid things in the whole issue are her claims made in the aforementioned article. Miss Grasmick claims that Sigma Theta Chi does nothing for the community and revolves solely around beer and parties. She probably used the fact that she only attended parties, not meetings, while she was a member, as the basis for the latter claim. If she had attended any meetings, she might have been aware of Sigma Theta Chi_'s participation in charity benefits such as the "Toys for Tots" campaign. Of course, Miss Grasmick did not participate in this or in any oth...

Individual development stressed in Alpha Sigma Alpha In April, the sisters of Alpha Sigma Alpha are looking forward to the installation of our colony to chapter status in the national organization. To achieve this status we must fulfill established goals, while closely following national guidelines. These goals are geared towards the development of our individual members as well as the colony as a whole. To become a chapter of a national organization, such as ASA, Epsilon Theta colony must meet certain criteria. Alpha Sigma Alpha promotes, reinforces, and recognizes high scholarship. If a member's or pledge's grades fall below a 2.0, then she is excused from chapter activities and tutored until her grades are back up to standard. To ensure the girls do not limit their talents or friendships, the Contract for Chartering also requires the sisters to be involved in other campus activities. You will find ASA's involved in Choir, ROTC, as Campus Tour Guides, Cheerleaders, and in ...

Inter Greek Council formed ' resident, Inter Greek Council Unknown to most students, an organization has just this past year been founded which unites all social Greek societies here at Behrend College. This united group is the Inter-Greek Council, comprised of the four Greek social organizations: Sigma Kappa Nu, Kappa Delta Rho, Sigma Theta Chi, and Alpha Sigma Alpha . The Inter-Greek Council (IGC) meets twice a month with the presidents and two elected representatives from each organization to discuss common problems, inter-Greek relations, promotion of common fund raisers for charity, and the continuation and betterment of Greek life here at Behrend College. This letter is in response to the letter to the editor written concerning Greek life here at Behrend in the February 12, 1987 edition of the Behrend Collegian v The members of the ICG have discussed, in great detail, the accusations made about Greek life in the letter during our February 16, 1987 meeting.
