Behrend Enrollment Up In spite of a drop m the number of new freshmen, Penn State-Bchrend has reached a recordbreaking fall semester enrollment for the seventh consecutive year. The college's total enrollment (including both traditional students and students enrolled in for-credit Continuing Education programs) is up 9.7% over last fall's count. The increase brings the college's total enrollment to 2,813, according to unofficial figures from the Registrar's Office. Individually, the number of traditional, full-time students has risen 9.6%, and the credit area of Continuing Education has recorded an 8.2% increase. Perhaps most significant, according 10 Provost and Dean Dr. John Lilley, are the shifts in enrollment for both the freshman class and the college's junior and senior classes. While the number of freshmen enrolling at Pcnn State-Behrend has decreased from 772 in the fall of 1987 to 677 this year, the number of Behrend majors has increased by 8%. Students who are Behren...

Computer Center by Carolyn Dudas The Behrend College Computer Center can help ease the tension and pressure of typing a paper. How? The Computer Center has several word processing packages available to students: MacWrite for the Macintosh and IBM Writing Assistant, Microsoft Word, and WordPerfect for IBM PC's and compatible computers. These packages range from the simple to the complex in both the features offered and in ease of use. For example, IBM Writing Assistant and MacWrite are easy-touse, no frills software packages. If you're new to computers or to word processing and require nothing more than the standard features used on a typewriter, then these packages may be what you need. More advanced users who need to perform more complex functions such as automatic footnoting, column formatting, and mailmerges (commonly used to send out "personalized" cover letters to prospective employers), then you might want to consider using Microsoft Word or WordPerfect. So whether you...

Voter Registration Drive This year, 1988, is an election year. However, little over half of the 27 million people in the 18-24 age group are registered. Plus, only 41% of the registered voters exercised that right in 1984. This has not gone unnoticed. The National Student Campaign for Voter Registration, headquartered in Washington D.C., has set up an effort to register more students and get them to come out and vote on November 8. The Political Awareness Club, a non-partisan group on campus, has decided to join in this effort They are looking for volunteers to assist ¦ in planning and implementing a registration drive at Behrend. The club also plans to follow up the drive with a "Get-Out-the-Vote" effort. Volunteers are needed to design and post signs around campus and man tables where registration forms would be distributed and explained. A debate on the platforms of each presidential candidate is also planned, and volunteers are needed to help with logistics. All of these pla...

opinion Love Rob Men Haters by Rob Prindle Feature Editor. I was in the Gorge when I saw my friend sitting at a table in the smoking section. I fought my way through-the cigarette- smoke haze and sat down with my friend Butch. I couldn't believe my cigarette-hating buddy was sitting right in the middle of that smoke cloud. I asked him what the heck he was doing. "I'm sitting here to help my social life," he said, "if I didn't sit in this section of the Gorge, I would never see any women." I looked around, and he was right, there were many more women than men in the smoking section. The case had been the opposite in nonsmoking. I asked Butch why that was. "I guess that broads smoke more than us guys," he replied, "it's like I always say; Men are more smart than women." I had to disagree with my good friend over that remark. I am a liberal guy, some would even call me arenauissanceman, so I couldn't be heard agreeing with that sexist-sounding remark. Instead of agreeing, I simpl...

Collegian Page 4 Orientation Blues by Kevin Trenney Collegian staff writer Why did I do it? This is a question which I have asked myself countless times after jumping into strange bodies of water. Though the pool appears dark and cold the diver proceeds. Why does he plunge? Because it seems mysterious and challenging? Perhaps. The prospect of becoming an orientation leader may have been similar to that of jumping in a lake, for me. But really, why did I enter the "Ocean of Orientation?" Did I do it because I like to spend sunny afternoons stuffing orientation folders in Reed 116. Doing this fun task with the knowledge that my work would be destroyed within ten minutes of reaching the hands of new students, was a tniP- i_*^ v _Pvpn thr»_ncrh T knew beforehand that the folder contents would be strewn all over the P.S.U. North Pole (Behrend) Campus, I still had a burning desire, upon seeing this littering, to rip the lips off of each new student so that they would have to go ...

by Pete Weichlen Collegian Staff Writer On November 8th of this year all of America's registered voters are invited to participate in a nationwide, even worldwide practical joke. We get to send either Laurel or Hardy to the White House - What A decision! The candidates as well as their ' campaigns will be remembered by generations to come as the epitome of American politics. We have on the one side George Bush who has blessed our country with seven years of his vice-presidential doings, successfully hiding behind his forgetful boss' back. If asked for issues, opinions, points of view, or even a platform, Mr. Bush refers to the History books and Encyclopedias. Anything listed under "Reagan" applies. This also includes the Iran-Contra affair and a deficit which can only be expressed in Scientific notation. GEORGE BUSH Waghorn Vice President CPS Mr. Bush thought all his troubles were over after naming a young, energetic senator as his running mate. Dan Quaylc's chore for the Republ...

Letter to Editor Problem with Rules Dear Editor, As you may know, there is a new rule in effect prohibiting any eating or drinking in the upper Reed lobby (outside Wintergreen Cafe). We feel this is inappropriate because it is a public (student) lounge. The dictionary definition of lounge: Lounge (lonj) n. 6. a place for sitting, waiting, smoking, reading, _drinking, etc.. esp. a large public room as in a hotel, theater, or air terminal, often with adjoining washrooms. The cafeteria fumture is uncomfortable and the atmosphere is loud and unruly. By eating in the lobby we can relax on soft couches in a more peaceful area and still socialize with friends who aren't eating. Other lounges on campus even have food vending machines and pop machines. As long as the students clean up after themselves, I see no reason to ban food and beverages in the lounge. Sincerely, NOTE: Letter was signed by a number of individuals.

Behrend Parking How to park at Behrend: a) start at tennis courts and get car up to 25mph b) while passing Erie Hall gather books c) when you reach Turnbull open door and jump out These are the only steps to guamtee yourself a parking spot in the Behrend parking lots. The problem is not just limited to the commuters; the teachers and residents also have problems finding parding spots. The only people without trouble finding spots are the boys with sirons on top of their cars. Students, whethe they be commuter or residents, have to pay S25 for a parking permit and then they can't find spots. Now there is a new policy (different form last year) that states commuters cannot park in resident lots and vice-versa. That means if I drive my girlfriend home (I am a commuter and she is a resident) and want to walk her home I must park down by Erie Hall and walk all the way up to the apartments, or I can risk a parking ticket by. leaving my car for 5 minutes in the residcntal lot. Of c...

Pete's Perspective have been happy about that one. With Texas being his home state, it was something of a sure thing for the Republicans; not anymore. This of course brings up the question whether this to-be vicepresident was selected for his qualifications or rather because his front lawn happens to be Texas soil. Our's is not to wonder why... In 1984 our choice was easy: Who in his right mind would want Fritz Mondale as President, with Mrs. Ferraro as second in command. This year however we have a problem. I don't want to offend any true Republicans or Democrats (it's probably too late for that), but lets get serious here. So far _Uns whole campaign has been a pretty sad example of American politics. This is not only the politician's fault, but also to a great part the fault of our over-excited media. Nobody can tell you who to vote for, I personally will wait for the debates, when all the candidates will finally talk issues, and nothing else.

CAMPUS VOICE by Nanette Quatchak and Vail Weller Entertainment Editors . Welcome back to school. For those of you -who have been reading the Collegian in the past, you will notice that the Student Voice is now called Campus Voice. This year we will not only be talking to the students on campus but also faculty and staff. We hope that this will show a more broad view of opinion at Behrend. The question that we asked in this issue involved other ways that the Collegian can be improved. Here are the answers we received: Dr. Louanne Barton 3 years Personal Counselor "I don't see that any improvements are needed. I like the new format a lot and I like the fact that you can include controversial subjects. It is very important to be able to say what you want to say without being censored." Bill Gallenz 9th semester Management "...more interaction with students to get their opinions. I like the idea of Campus Voice but I think there should be more things like it." _EUie Richardson 2...

features This Breakfast in Review by Our Man With Vision Brett Taylor Collegian Staff Writer I believe it was Voltaire who declared, "Breakfast is the opium of the people. " Or was it, "Opium is the breakfast of the people." Regardless, several revolutions in Western attitudes and technology have afforded the modern consumer a far healthier and diversified field of breakfast food options than those offered to our friend Voltaire. The unprepared shopper of today is easy prey to choice anxiety each time he stumbles into the cereal aisle of his favorite store. With new offerings arriving on the supermarket shelves each week, it becomes more and more difficult to make the right choice. Confusing the issue even more is the latest entry from Ralston Purina, a concoction called Dinersaurs. The motif is, obviously, dinosaurs who operate a diner. Judging from the front panel illustration, these pastel-colored reptiles specialize in a cereal designed in their own image. The obligato...
