Counseling Center Offers Help in Many Areas [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
Counseling Center Offers Help in Many Areas Look inside the doorway and you will see blue and yellow beanbags stacked against one wall; a receptionist wedged between colors, smiling and eager to assist; on the wall, an uneven dual highway of green and yellow, which if you follow will lead you to a door covered with outrageous postcards and the largest geranium you will probably ever see. The sign over the doorway says, "Counseling Center." It is that and much more. Probably a more accurate title for this multi-purpose office would be the "Personal Development Center," for everything that Counselors Marian Krieger and Ed Beck offer is geared toward growth and development. Whether you want to learn how to relax in stressful situations, learn how to study more effectively, become more assertive, get guidance in career or education goals, or just get personal counseling, Room W-l 17 is the place to go. Do you get so anxious when taking a test that you actually forget the answers...

ff * AIDS Misconceptions [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 24 August 1987
ff * AIDS Misconceptions (from page 1) Furthermore, there has not been a single case of AIDS among those living with persons who have AIDS, except, of course, for their sexual partners or children born to parents with the virus. Who gets AIDS? So far, in the United States, more than 90 percent of the people with AIDS belong to three groups: homosexual and bisexual men, male and female drug users who share needles, and people who have received blood for medical reasons. When an epidemic begins and what groups of people are the first to be at risk are largely matters of chance. No epidemic has ever stayed confined to a single group of people, and AIDS is no exception. What precautions should be taken to avoid infection with the AIDS virus? The best advice for individuals is to avoid the exchange of all body fluids such as semen, blood, urine, feces or vaginal secretions, with potentially infectious persons. Research indicates that anal intercourse may be particularly dangerous...

Alcohol Abuse Discussed on Capitol Hill Uncooperative Attitudes of Colleges Cited by LCB By Jan Travers A recent Department of Education survey of colleges and universities reveals most institutions felt drug and alcohol abuse is a major concern that should be addressed As a result of action in the Pennsylvania House of Representative, House Resolution Number 86 established a committee to "investigate the extent of alcohol abuse by commonwealth college and university students, both on and off campus, including the extent to which underage drinking and the lack of enforcement of both institution drinking rules and the laws of the commonwealth contribute to the problem." ^.«- On Tuesday, September 9, the committee met with law enforcement representatives and PA college student leaders in a three hour meeting to hear testimony on the issue. The major focus of the hearing was underage drinking. "It's ironic that if you have money and intelligence you can buy a ticket to drink ...

The XGIs, which began as a veterans organization but changed to a social-services organization, provide community services and arc no longer strictly veterans, but are of all ages, all majors and arc people who like to have fun. One reason the club is holding die drive is because of the need for blood resulting from the lack of donations due to the AIDS epidemic. In addition, according to President Butch Lutz, "It is a tradition for the XGIs to hold the blood drive and wc arc trying to get other clubs involved." The goal is 200 pints. This is not impossible.

Guess Who's Griping Now [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 September 1987
Guess Who's Griping Now Jan Travers/Editor Recently, 50 of Penn State Harrisburg's student leaders met for a weekend of leadership training. Expertly run by the Student Affairs staff, the conference gave us a chance to evaluate ourselves in both individual and group settings. The conclusion of the weekend was an open discussion with Ruth Leventhal, Robert Graham, and Jerry South, our administrators. The rules were simple. Six chairs were placed in a circle in the middle of the room. Three were occupied by the administrators and three by students. Only those in the inner circle could speak. Therefore, when a student from outside the circle wanted to speak, he or she had to replace a student already there. We had our gripes ready. We fired questions in rapid succession to the three. In most instances we got what I considered satisfactory answers. However, there were some areas that the Big 3 said they would have to check into. The ironic part of the whole discussion was that...
On Being a Woman [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 September 1987
On Being a Woman by Vicki Koon Although I have wanted to write a column with a feminine viewpoint, I have struggled with calling myself a woman. Even though I'm over 30,1 still feel like a girl. I don't dress properly or fix my hair right to be a woman. But then neither does Linda Ellerbee. All my life I have wondered if I would know when it happened. What is it that separates the women from the girls? The first time I shaved my legs I thought I had made the great transition. That is, until I walked out of the bathroom to find my cousin waiting for me to go bike riding. It was the same thing with the first menstration, the first kiss, and the first pair of tummy-control pantyhose. There was always something there to pull me back into girlhood. The one aspect of being a woman that I have never bought is using the feminine wiles. I've always seen it as a game that eventually must come to an unpleasant end. Like my high school friend Jane, who was dangling Bob on one hand and J...
A Call For Alcohol Education [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 16 September 1987
A Call For Alcohol Education Jan Travers/Editor We live in a society where consumption of alcohol is associated as being social and having a good time. And since a college is a society within a society it follows that students drink for the same reason. It's a way to release stress and tension. Representative Frank LaGrotta, member of the House Select Committee to Investigate Alcohol Abuse in Pennsylvania Institutions of Higher Education, created a scenario during the committee meeting last week. Addressing himself to college students present at the hearing, he asked what the public would think if every Wednesday all representatives would get together, each paying $5 admission to drink and party to relieve the tension and stress they face in dealing as legislators each day. He wondered aloud how long it would take for the outcry from the people that there were a bunch of drunks running the state. His point, in his words, was alcohol abuse is "cute until you get your diploma ...
