Hasty moves spell trouble [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Hasty moves spell trouble By Neil Myers It was the chief of one of Capitol's academic divisions that hit the nail on the head. He said that getting anything done here is like moving a galcier—it takes forever to get it started but it's impossible to stop once it's rolling. The current round of musical chairs with campus offices is a prime example. Lots of people seem to agree that a change is in order. The provost thinks so. S.G.A. thinks so. Some of the clubs think so, too. What nobody can agree on is exactly what to change. The current plan started last summer as a way to move the provost's office to the first floor bookstore area in the Olmsted Building. S.G.A., WNDR and club offices were to move from their current site across from the Gallery Lounge to a large suite next to the auditorium on the second floor. Student Activities, now in W-104, was to move in next to the clubs in room 212. Classrooms were to fill the vacated space on the first floor. But change isn't as ea...
Letters [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Letters To the Editor: Your recent coverage of the proposal to change the Engineering Technology degree (from B.T. to B.S.E.T.) incorrectly claims that this would be the first Bachelor of Science degree at The Capitol Campus. Actually, this campus has already graduated more than 100 alumni who have earned a B.S. in Mathematical Sciences and who now possess not only a B.S. degree from the Pennsylvania State University but also a broad education in mathematics, statistics, and/or computer science.

Dorms getting new windows [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Dorms getting new windows By Joseph L. Michalsky The new storm windows recently installed in the first floor of the dorms cost more than $11,000 according to Housing Supervisor Frank Williams. These new, aluminum-framed windows replace the old, wooden-framed storm windows. New storm windows for the second and third floors may be installed as early as next year, Williams said. The windows from the first floor are still usable and have already replaced some of the old windows on the second and third floors, he added. Williams said the Maintenance and Operations Department seeks to upgrade or replace certain components of the residence halls every year. He also cited the new carpeting and furniture installed in the past two years as examples of recent renovations. Williams said students should contact him when ques tions or problems arise concerning the maintenance and upkeep of the residence halls, University Apartments and Meade Heights.
Internship Offers Increase, Colleges Say [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Internship Offers Increase, Colleges Say (CPS)-Thanks to the economic recovery, the market for student interns seems to have reversed itself in the last few weeks. A number of campuses around the country report businesses are offering more internships this fall, and that the campus cooperative education offices are having a hard time finding enough students to satisfy the demand. "Placement is up this semester due to the turnaround in the economy," reports Keith Kirby, co-op ed director at Wichita State University. "For the first time, employers are calling us for students." "We still have more students than positions," he declares, "but it's getting better." Kirby hopes to place 650 students this year, up from 520 a year ago. "We register about 2,000 students yearly," adds Marilyn Perry of Brigham Young's coop education office. "Sometimes there are more students than openings. But, while we still.do some looking for positions, more and more companies are coming to us ...
Minority students question recruitment honesty [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Minority students question recruitment honesty By Don Strausburger On paper, John and Ken are typical Capitol Campus students. John is an engineering student, while Ken is a humanities major. Unfortunately, the college careers of these two suffer from a continuing problem in the Penn State system ~ low black enrollment. In its 1983 Minority Report, Penn State noted that only 64 of the 2452 Capitol students, approximately 2.6 percent, were black. In fact, of the 55,200 students enrolled at all Penn State campuses, 2.64 percent were black. The black enrollment problem has many implications and is the result of several problems which must be considered. Most importantly, black enrollment yields dollars for the university in the form of government funding. As the minority population grows, so do the government funds, according to John Thomas, a member of the Black Student Union at Capitol Campus. Three of the campus black students cite ineffective recruiting techniques as a cont...
Black enrollment jumps by 41 % [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Black enrollment jumps by 41 % By Phil Galewitz Special to the Capitol Times From The Weekly Collegian The number of black freshman enrolled at the University has increased 41 percent to 643, Robert Dunham, vice president for academic services, said. Of the 10,084 new freshman admitted to the University, 6.4 percent are black. This is the University's largest increase of blacks ever, Dunham said. In 1983, including both in- and out-of-state students, 457 blacks entered as freshman. Pennsylvania blacks, who help to attain the University's Title VI obligation to increase the number of blacks at the University, increased by 74 percent, Dunham said. As of last spring, 2,8 percent of the University's population was black. The current percentage of blacks in the University will be announced later this month. Title VI legislation requires the University to reach 5 percent total black student enrollment by 1988.
HACC builds tech labs [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
HACC builds tech labs By Ken Stiggers About a year ago, Penn State Capitol changed the look of the campus when the new $2.1 million Science and Technology Building was constructed. The building was finished just in time for fall classes. Last spring, Harrisburg Area Community College (H.A.C.C.) began construction of a new $5.1 million technology center to be known as the North Hall Technology and Laboratory Building. Funding for the new technology building resulted from the combined efforts of the federal and state govern ments, H.A.C.C. and the private sector. A federal grant of $600,000 was awarded under the Vocational Education Act, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provided half of the total cost. H.A.C.C. provided over $1 million. Also, private funds of $78,000 have already been pledged, and the State Public School Building Authority will finance the remaining costs. Since 1979, H.A.C.C. has experienced an enrollment increase of 33.4 percent and faces a severe shor...
Building improves campus image [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Building improves campus image By Ken Stiggers About a year ago Capitol Campus changed the look of the campus when the new $2.1 million Science and Technology Building was finished just in time for fall classes. This new facility became the first to be constructed solely for the academic purposes in the campus' 18-year history. According to Dr. William Welsh, head of the Division of Science and Technology, the engineering program has experienced enrollment increases since 1975. These increases in enrollment caused a shortage of instructional space in the Mechanical Engineering Program, and the new building provided the needed space. The twenty-thousand square foot facility will be used for class lectures, laboratory work, and research. The Mechanical Engineering Technology department will move into the old Engineering Lab Building next to the University Apartments. The building consists of four labs and eight rooms: general chemistry, civil engineering and materials, en ...
Leventhal positive on Capitol's development [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Leventhal positive on Capitol's development By Tony Perry In two weeks, Capitol Campus' new provost will have been in office for four months, and as she moves the administration into a "strategic planning phase," she is optimistic about the task of improving and promoting Penn State's only upper division commonwealth campus. "I'm going to be positioning Capitol Campus as the regional center for higher education in South Central Pennsylvania," said Provost/Dean Ruth Leventhal, recently. "It's not getting easier and it's not getting any harder," she said. "It is enjoyable. People have helped tremendously." Leventhal said the recent appointment of John H. Joseph as planning officer for the campus is the start of an intensive effort to get Capitol's immediate goals into a final plan of action by March. Composed of faculty, students, alumni and members of the campus community, approximately 27 separate committees are being formed to "study and make recommendations about the kinds...
Autumn buzz features variety of events [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
Autumn buzz features variety of events By Annette Childs and Ken Stiggers The beginning of autumn was certainly in its bloom this weekend with the annual Autumn Buzz weekend celebrations. The Student Union Board of Governors started the weekend off presenting a live concert. The Sharks and the Inciters performed Friday night at the Gym in the Multi-Purpose Building. The Inciters appeared first followed by the Sharks three 50-minute sets. Everyone that attended seemed to enjoy themselves. Some people sat in the bleachers and just listened to the two bands, and others jumped down from the bleachers and started dancing on the floor. It was a very exciting evening. There were also two students - Clinton Lattany Jr. and Ghan Desai ~ there who videotaped the concert so it can be available for those who missed it. There were a variety of different opinions from those who attended the concert about its success. Sandy Bragiel, an Energy Engineering Technology student said, "I really ...

New CC scholarship [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 18 October 1984
New CC scholarship By Dave Donlin The first scholarship program has been established at Capitol Campus for full-time undergraduate students. The Capitol Campus Memorial Scholarship, an endowed scholarship program, was developed by Business faculty members. It was approved by the University and Board of Trustees on August 14, 1984, according to Michael Breslin, Director of Campus Relations. A minimum of $ 15,000 is re quired for the scholarship program to be activated. Interest earned on the first $15,000 will be used as individual awards to full-time undergraduates enrolled or planning to enroll at Capitol. So far, approximately $3,000 has been raised, Breslin said. Each scholarship award will be made in memory of a deceased faculty or staff member of the campus. The first Capitol Campus Memorial Scholarship will be made in memory of Dr. James Atkins. A date for the presentation of the first award is unknown at this time. Students must have at least a sixth-semester standi...
