The report will be given to Wesleyan in one or two weeks. The review team met with students, administration and faculty to examine the programs, the mission of the program, the extent to which the program fulfills the mis- sion and the resources required to fulfill the mission. The purpose of the review was not to evaluate accreditation but it was a result of substance change with the addition of the MBA program in fall 1996, according to Dr. Louis McLain, dean of the school of busi- ness. "We feel good about the process. We believe that our evaluation was objective and favorable," said McLain. "I believe that the...

Staff writer X-Treme air, a skydiving simulator, is on its way to campus but not before con- cerns are raised over its $4,000 cost. X-Treme air comes from Paradigm Entertainment, the first company to produce a mobile skydiving simulator. The simula- tor is a totally enclosed, self-contained air flight show where the student (or any per- son for that matter) is the performer. X-Treme air will be pulling into the mall area in front of the West Library at 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 5. Of course something of this size will not come cheap, but activities coordinator, Fith Fithian said it will be, "nothing extra for the students and funded jointly with SGA." The price of the simulator brings up concern, considering that the student activ- ities budget is only $6,000 for the entire year. ' Thus, student activities asked for the help of Student Government Association to chip in w...

Soccer men beat T.L.U., lose to Incarnate Word in struggle for playoffs Kkkki Clark Staff Writer Men's soccer has traveled down Interstate 35 one too many times this year, hoping to gain the respect of their opponents. After their loss to West Texas A&M Commerce, Texas Wesley an needed some type of moral booster to lift their spirits. Texas Lutheran University was just the game to bring some confidence. In the first halt, freshman for- ward Casey Weil dribbled past defenders to score the first goal for Wesleyan. Wesleyan had the opportunity to score from TLU defender's mistake and Clint Bower, Wesleyan defender, took the penalty kick and put Wesleyan ahead 2-0 before half. The second half was clearly dominated by Wesleyan yet they had only one more goal by midfielder Paul Baker making the final 3-0 in favor of Wesleyan. Once again the second day of the road trip was not as pleasant as the first day. Friday's game against Incarnate Word was brutal. Battling back and forth, both W...

"The sad part of it is that we could avoid a lot. of the crime by simply taking the necessary precautions to protect ourselves," said Speed. Speed said people tend to think violent crimes occur randomly. However, Speed said the vast majority of violent crimes are committed by people known by the victims. In the next several months, Speed will address ways to protect students by intro- ducing a number of programs at Wesleyan. "Crime prevention is everybody's responsi- bility," said Speed.
