Business Survey Responses [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 April 1987
Business Survey Responses By Kathleen Riley-King Of the twelve responses received, all agreed that more open forums would be beneficial and that faculty members should attend the forums. All of the respondents said that they would be willing to attend additional forums. The respondents felt that the forums should be held at various times of the day and evening "so all would have a chance to attend." Two respondents attended the February 4 forum, one attended the February 2 forum, and two attended the March 19 forum. Those who did not attend any of the forums cited not knowing about them, not enough advance notice, conflict with classes, and conflict with work schedules as reasons for not attending. Several students pointed out that night students should be offered forums as well. Comments and questions for the division included: * "Could apathy be a response to a 'who cares about the studentconsumer' attitude on the college's part?" * "All the new transfer students should have...

Penn State, Harrisburg Forms Student Chapter of ASM By Kathleen Riley-King "We are the only school within central Pennsylvania from University Park probably to Philadelphia with such a student chapter [of the Association for Systems Management]," says Dr. Mehdi Khosrowpour, chairman of the information systems program and faculty advisor of Capital College's new student chapter of ASM.

According to Pat Basso, president of Capital College's student chapter, ASM has contact with 32 countries and consists of about 9,000-10,000 members. Khosrowpour says that the purpose of forming a student chapter at Capital College is to allow students to partic...

Where Can We Put Books? [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 April 1987
Where Can We Put Books? Dear Editor It hardly seems fair that a student pays from $30 to $50 for a textbook and then is subjected to placing that text on the floor or the edge of a wet wash basin when stopping off at the men's room. Surely one is not expected to hold their books while relieving oneself according to the dictates of mother nature. I am informed by fellow co-ed students that they do not face this dilemma in the ladies rooms. The female members of this campus enjoy the luxury of shelves or tables. I'm sure this campus can manage to find funds to accommodate their male students and faculty in a like manner. Sincerely, Gene Albano
ATTENTION HEINDEL LIBRARY USERS [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 April 1987
ATTENTION HEINDEL LIBRARY USERS Some of the newer Penn State Identification cards have no date on them indicating you are a current student. For this reason, when you check out books in the library you may be asked for your bursar's card or a copy of your current class schedule (available from the records office.) This regulation is not posted in the library so you have no indication of the regulation until they spring it on you. Plan ahead for it so you don't run into problems during the end-of-the-semester rush.

Nigh... (continued from pg.3) practical. "I can handle details, but I don't do it well or enjoy it." - Sometimes he says a part of him wishes he had not dropped out of school, but had "ploughed straight through" until he was finished and gotten a conventional job. "But that's not me," he says. "It really isn't. I dislike materialism and pure avarice." Many of his friends and acquaintances got degrees, got jobs, and are making good salaries now, "But they are quite miserable. They don't like their chosen fields but are trapped because they enjoy the lifestyles the salaries provide," he says. He avoided that because he probably wouldn't have gone into art and literature at 17. "You need to understand who you are and be comfortable with who you are." His love for art blossomed in Europe, he says. His choice to use wood as a sculpture medium came from the experience with it at the monastery in Crete, but his love for wood began when he was a child on the SO acre farm where he was ...
Spring Survey [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 8 April 1987
Spring Survey by Vicki Koon The snow has finally all melted and the tires grab the road once again. Along with the appearance of Spring blooms is the emergence of litter, long hidden under mounds of sooty snow like thoughts rediscovered in the margins of old notes. It's a good time to gather up the forgotten and the misplaced and redistribute. Before the next issue of the Capital Times is printed, we hope to have a permanent box for survey answers, letters to the editor, and classified ads. Please be on the lookout for this new structure. In the meantime we will be , using the box next to the paper stand outside of the Lion's \ Den. 1. Why is there so much apathy on campus? 2. Would you like to see a daycare facility here? 3.

Capital College's Manager of Facilities to Retire [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 April 1987
Capital College's Manager of Facilities to Retire By Tom Boyle Teamwork is something that Capital College's Manager of Facilities, Maintenance and Operations learned during his 30 years in the Army Corps of Engineers and it's what he is most proud of at Penn State, Harrisburg.

China Visited Through the Eyes of HACC President Kenneth Woodbury [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 April 1987
China Visited Through the Eyes of HACC President Kenneth Woodbury By Jan Trovers The International Affairs Association and Delta Tau Kappa recently played host to the Harrisburg Area Community College President Kenneth Woodbury during International Week. Woodbury spent three weeks in the People's Republic of-China last summer as a member of a delegation of 13 community college presidents who took part in a seminar on the Chinese education system. China's education system has been undergoing a crash program of rebuilding since 1979, Woodbury explained. Prior to this time a revolution within the country had dismantled the system, sending professors and students to the fields to get in touch with the masses. The education structure is overseen by the State Education Commission. The commission, similar to our Department of Education, is administrated by the vice premier of the country. Education in China is very competitive, according to Woodbury. There are only 1,000 undergradu...
Novelist Says Literature Gives Us Insight Into Ourselves [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 April 1987
Novelist Says Literature Gives Us Insight Into Ourselves By Jan Trovers A great novel is a specific kind of creation which explores the insides of social classes, according to Dr. Chaim Potok. Potok, substituting at the last moment for the ailing I.B. Singer in the Provost's Lecture Series, held a second session Friday, April 9, in the Gallery Lounge for student and faculty. "The novel is a voyeuristic instrument par excellence," said Potok. "It brings you inside a world you wouldn't go, inside people's rooms and inside people's minds who are inside the room." Potok, author of the best seller "The Chosen," said that before he finished the first 50 pages of the novel, he had thrown out at least 1100 pages until he felt the voice was right. "When in doubt, leave it out," said Potok, quoting Mark Twain. "If you are not sure of what you wrote, get rid of it and do it better," he added. Potok, speaking in a deep, resonant voice which sounded like it was reproduced from a compact ...
PSU Student to Run in Dauphin County Primary [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 27 April 1987
PSU Student to Run in Dauphin County Primary Jeanette L. Brinker, student government president at Penn State, Harrisburg, has announced she will wage a write-in campaign for Dauphin County register of wills in the Democratic primary. Brinker, who had received the endorsement of the county Democratic Committee, arrived to file her petition on March 10, the last filing day, less than one minute after the doors to the Bureau of Registration and Elections had been locked. After protesting the decision, her case was review by the county commissioners in an emergency meeting. However they voted 2-to-l to deny her request to be placed on the ballot. Rather than petition the court to have the commissioners' decision reversed, Brinker has decided to run as a write-in candidate.
