Foreign Students Adjust to Education System [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 19 November 1986
Foreign Students Adjust to Education System By_Jan Travers Raise your hand if you arc willing to leave the United Slates for foreign territory to pursue an academic degree? Would you be able to cope with the abrupt changes in your life, like a different language, new foods, strange customs, and no recognizable friendly faces? For the 16 international students at Penn State, Harrisburg, learning to adapt is taken in stride. Most of them do not even see themselves as doing anything extraordinary. This is not to say that their stay in America is without problems. As is understandable, communication is a major problem. Not only arc they unaccustomed to speaking English daily, but also, as in the typical case of Panos Xynarios, a graduate student from Athens, Greece, it is hard to think and react in English as well. "I decided early in my education that the key to survival was getting into the mainstream, so I joined student clubs," said Xynarios. This allowed him to make frien...
Committee Working to Internationalize Campus [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 19 November 1986
Committee Working to Internationalize Campus By Jan Travers "Americans arc very parochial. They arc unaware of other cultures," said Frank Swelz, director of campus international affairs. "We can no longer expect to be professionals in our global society without being knowledgeable about other countries," he added. It was for this reason that the Committee for International Affairs was charged with the task of "internationalizing the campus." The committee of 10 is finding ways to build awareness of the big world beyond our door. The number one committee priority for this year is establishing a host family program where a family in the community would agree to "adopt " an international student. According to Swetz, some students never leave the campus for the whole time they are here. To really get to know what American culture is, the international student must go into people's homes and sec how they live. "You can't learn the culture by bumping into Americans at Fox's Marke...

Appreciating Middletown [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 19 November 1986
Appreciating Middletown By Ray Burkett "Some proposals for a second settlement in the Province of Pennsylvania." It is now my purpose to make another settlement upon the river Susquehannagh, that runs into the Bay of Chesapeake. There I design to lay out a plan for the building of another city, in the most convenient place for communication with the former plantations on the East, a way being laid out between the two rivers (Swatara and Susquehannagh) very exactly and conveniently. By water is in the common course of the Indians with their skins and furs into our parts, and to provinces of east and west Jersey, and New York, from the west and northwest part of the continent from whence they bring the.m. And I do also intend yhat every o\ne who shall be a purchaser in this proposed settlement, shall have \ a proportionable lot in the city to build a house or houses upon. \ Wilitam Penn, London 1690 The entire cent-ral Pennsylvania area is rich in history but especially signif...
Why Are Teachers? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 19 November 1986
Why Are Teachers? By Julie Larson It is true, I concede, that learning is up to the student. But if this be the case, why are teachers? I was thinking in class the other day. (I sometimes do that.) It was not one of those classes in which I play the epitome of the model student. Don't get me wrong, I was prepared. I had read the material, and recognized each topic as it scrolled forth. But alas, the scrolled material was not the topic of my thoughts. I daydreamed of scuba diving through the universe of my Pepsi, only to emerge, beer in hand, through the dance floor of the "Burst". There I loitered to engage in the collegiate stimulation which happens there, and which led me back to a question of importance. Which was the most unwise investment: my class book ($30), or my tuition for that class ($600, out of state). It was obvious that the two items were of equal value and content - or so it seemed on that day and many others - one costing $30, and one $600. Now I'm a busin...

Give Them What They Deserve [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 19 November 1986
Give Them What They Deserve Jan T ravers/Editor Our SGA has been stomped on, kicked, and knocked down by the students, and all with good reason. I mean, what are they really doing for the students, right? How are they spending our money, and are we reaping any benefits from it? I want you to contact your senator right this minute and tell him... What, who is your senator? You mean you don't know who is representing your division on the SGA. How could you not know whom you voted for? Ah-ha, so you didn't vote. Now the true problem with student governance comes out. The SGA represents the student body of this school and when only a handful of people gets involved, you get a narrow point of view. I know, I've heard it all~you work, go to school, run a house, etc. It's a complicated life. But involvement is not an intrusion on your time, it is a way of applying what you learned to the real world. SGA is in the process of revising its constitution. During the open forum last ...
