Harambee Dinner pulls together a diverse community [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Harambee Dinner pulls together a diverse community Speaker captivates audience by Chantel Gray staff writer On September 15, 1999 at 6:00 p.m., the Harambee Dinner was held in Reed Union Commons. Harambee is a Swuhili word meaning "pull together," which was the theme for this event. The Harambee dinner has been held for about 5 years. Many students attended this celebration. "I felt the dinner was a big success. We had 220 people this year.usually we only have about 100 people who attend," said Shamira Williams, president of the Multi-Cultural Council, who helped sponsor this event. Williams feels that the Behrend community as a whole pulls together because of events such as these. She especially appreciates the fact that the keynote speaker came to speak under stressful circumstances and on short notice. "I'm pleased with the turnout...people were more focused on the dinner rather than socializing," said Student Government Association representative Michael Ross. "1 think...

Humanities & Social Sciences hosts picnic for major-hungry students PHOTO BY MIKE FRAWLEY Students and faculty enjoy the food at the H&SS picnic by Becky Weindorf staff writer This past Wednesday, September 15, faculty and students in the Humanities and Social Sciences (H&SS), gathered for a picnic at the Wilson Picnic Grove, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for those interested in majors in the school, meeting faculty, or getting more information about the different programs. A complimentary dinner for everyone present was offered, and students were able to have the chance to meet faculty currently teaching in the program, students who were majoring in the school and others who were simply curious about the different programs and opportunities offered. Several freshmen that were hesitant with getting involved with Psychology or English majors attended the picnic and enjoyed the opportunity for some social time with fellow students and finding out more abou...
Y2K On-Campus: How to prepare LionCash comes to Behrend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Y2K On-Campus: How to prepare LionCash comes to Behrend by Juliana Harper staff writer Computers in student labs at Behrend were made compliant for Y2K over the summer, but how prepared is your PC for the Year 2000? "Students must check their own systems for Y2K compliance," says Ronald Hoffman, Y2K Officer and Computer Center Manager. Penn State's goal is to preserve desktop computers wherever possible rather then replace them. "We are working closely with the University's Y2K taskforce to make sure all recommendations applicable to our computing environment are being implemented. We also estab lished a local Y2K taskforce at the College last Spring. The local task force was charged with checking all College computers for Y2K compliance and making recommendations to either replace those which aren't compliant or develop procedures for fixing older systems. This work is about 90 per cent complete," says Hoffman. Although work is almost finished on all the college computers, ...

Endowment brings multifaith chapel to Behrend [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Endowment brings multifaith chapel to Behrend by Erin MeCarty staff writer Mr. Larry V. Smith recently endowed the campus with a generous donation of three million dollars to be used for a multi-faith chapel in honor of himself, his wife and his parents. The chapel is to be located across Jordan Road, alongside an extension of the path currently leading up to the library, which will eventually end at the Athletic and Recreational Center (ARC). Once the projected constructions are added to Behrend, the chapel will be approximately in the center of the campus. Though its architectural design is vague at this point, the general idea is to have a wide open space inside. The space can be used for anything from Catholic masses to Jewish Shabbat services to Buddhist meditation. There will be no permanent religious symbols in the chapel, meaning that the members of every faith can worship or pray there in turn, surrounded only by the object that they hold sacred. "The general idea."...

Tuesday to Sunday: A look at Protestant Campus Ministry [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Tuesday to Sunday: A look at Protestant Campus Ministry Mark Bartlett plays the guitar for Campus Ministry. PH°TO BY JEFFREY MILLER by Erin MeCarty staff writer Tuesday's Child is brand new to the list of activities al Behrend. Mark Bartlett. a North East native and toolmaker by trade, is bringing his deep faith and impressive guitar-playing skills to Reed 112 every Tuesday night at 6:30 in a program initiated by Behrend's Protestant Campus Ministry. Orginally dubbed "Music with Mark." this one-hour praise session's new title carries with it a double meaning. The most obvious origin of name is the fact that it meets on Tuesdays. More obscure but also more interesting is the allusion to the old poem which states: "Tuesday's Child is full of grace." Coordinator of Protestant Campus Ministry Kelly Shrout is very enthusiatic about this weekly session and is undaunted by the low attendance up until this point. "It takes lime for these things to catch on," she stated. "Not too m...

Out with the old and in with the new! [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Out with the old and in with the new! Aview from the lighthouse There is no Homecoming this year, so what? There is something better, the Fall Festival/Parents and Families Weekend. Even though Homecoming has always been a highlighted event at University Park, it has never been that big of a deal here at Behrend. There are no highly attended parades and dances, so now the focus is on families. Families have been the backbone of Behrend from the very beginning, and this year the homecoming activities have been dropped in favor of a full family event. Even though we are away from home and away from our parents, there is no reason not to celebrate with our families. Try and lake full advantage of the events Behrend is hosting this weekend. The time you spend with your parents can be valuable and reward ing. Let them come and see what you do during the week. Share a meal with them at Dobbins (maybe they'll feel bad and take you grocery shopping later). Go s...
Bit chin'by Mike [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Bit chin'by Mike Mike Frawley Boy, it didn't take long for something else to upset me. Oh well, this time I am really pissed off. so here we go! As I sit here typing this. I am attempting to block out the tremendous amount of sound that is emanating from the Backroom at this very moment, and 1 am contemplating calling Police and Safety to get some peace and quiet. It is almost impossible for any member of the Beacon staff to get anything productive done when some form of profanity is echoing through the office. By now you must be wondering what is going on in the Backroom that could be creat ing such a disturbance. It is "rush" time, so that means some obnoxious "rush" party is going on in the Backroom. Now, just for the record. I personally have nothing against the Greek system, as long as they admit to what they are and what they do. I know that next week we will get some letter to the editor saying that the Greek system is a great one, and all of the good things that ...
Detours and Small Potatoes Is waiting the key to gun control? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Detours and Small Potatoes Is waiting the key to gun control? Doesn't it seem like every season this year has been marked with tragedy? Spring; Littleton, Colorado. Summer; a daycare in California. Fall; the most recent, a youth assembly at a Baptist church in Texas. Every time another shooting happens there is talk for a month or so about gun control in this country. People get all enraged and start speaking out (for or against) the NRAand the laws in this country. The media (from local to international) get to cover the sometimes heated debates, and the people of Amercia slop and think about "What could have prevented this terrible tragedy" for awhile. Soon though, the media finds something else to harp on, and Americans forget...be honest, how many of you had lorgotten about the shooting in Texas all ready'.' Every time that shootings occur though, I personally get sick of hearing the same tired arguments and 1 get tired of listening to the same Bill Clinton speech over a...
Join me in reality When a vote means too much [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Join me in reality When a vote means too much We have all sat through the months and months of endless bickering, the weeks of impeachment hearings, the spur of the moment bombings, and the sex scandals that you don't even find on daytime television. We have witnessed what a horrible past year this has been for our poor, poor president and his family. And we have all come to somewhat of an acceptance lhal most Americans don't care what happens in the White House, because sometime in the past seven years, the actions of our president in the "taxpayers" White House is no longer any of our business. So without dwelling too much on this scandalous past year, I will at tempt to shed some light on a rather dark subject. No, not the events going on in ihe Oval Office when the lights go out, but rather the events going on in the public's eye. Events (hat have perhaps been missed due to the regularity of controversy in the Clinton family. If there is one way to find a connection betw...

Who are you to judge? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Who are you to judge? LETTER TO THE EDITOR I was sitting in Bruno's this morning eating my breakfast when suddenly I noticed the people around me, I mean, I finally noticed them. There is a man on campus who slightly resembles a woman. I think he is a transgender, but I am not sure. Anyway, as I am sitting there eating, that man walks by. I think nothing of it until I look around me and find that about four tables of students are staring at him. I look to my right and hear, "That guy/girl...il, thing is so disgusting." I turn to my left and see two girls roll their eyes and laugh. The other tables continue in the same inappropiate manner. As I keep looking around, I really can see how horrible you people are. You sit there in your stable, unchangeable environment, never questioning or needing to alter yourselves because everyone likes you. You fit it. Hell, you even like yourself, but let's imagine for a second that you don't fit in. Let's say that you find that you aren't...
