Untitled Article [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 1 November 1984
Photo by Neil Myers A group of commuter students meet with Provost Ruth Leventhal In the Gallery Lounge to express their concerns about student life. Some schools go as far as to offer extended parking facilities and a few, like HACC, maintain a child play center for the many parents who commute for classes and need the convenience of a short-term babysitter. Ebersole said the programs that the all-commuter campus offers have to consider the problems of "the real world" because "everyone here is immersed in the real world." Here at Capitol, a publication called "For Commuters Only" is issued twice each semester to "give commuters information they may not pick up elswhere," according to Dave Doaty, coordinator for student services. A brown bag lunch series for commuter students has not had a large turn out, said Doaty, but he said the school is taking steps to make a commuter's experience here more enjoyable. Doaty said the cultural affairs program here offers both noon and...
Saturday Night reaches for past glory [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 1 November 1984
Saturday Night reaches for past glory By Don Strausburger "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night." Well, that's the way it used to be. After nine seasons and four entire cast changes, "Saturday Night" has attempted to become the radical hotbed of controversy which originally brought the show to fame in 1975. In the fall of 1975, NBC introduced the late-night viewing audience to the Not Ready for Prime Time Players, featuring the comedic talents of people like Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Dan Ackroyd and the late John Belushi. The show featured guest hosts taken from the entertainment world and musical guests to add variety to the general insanity. In the spring of 1980, "Saturday Night" executives removed the few remaining cast members and gave the show a new image. However, with the departure of the remaining original stars and its added attraction, Bill Murray, the show lost the spontaneity and comedic timing that kept the show exciting and fresh. The second cast, which fe...

Colleges snub porno flicks [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 1 November 1984
Colleges snub porno flicks (CPS) -- Several campuses once again have opted to approve using campus funds and facilities to run pornographic movies during the last month. Most recently, University of Virginia President Frank Hereford refused a National Organization for Women (NOW) invitation to view the movie "Deep Throat." NOW wanted to enlist Hereford's support in banning the film from UV, where it was shown as a fundraiser for the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity two weeks ago. Hereford, in a letter to Cynthia Taylor, president of the Charlottesvillle, Va., NOW chapter, said that while he "personally abhors this kind of thing," he feared banning the film would violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Taylor reports. Also fearing it'd quash free speech, an Indiana University dorm student government last week approved a motion to let students keep showing X-rated movies in the dorm. The week before, 25 University of Iowa protestors tried to disrupt a campus showing of...

Stress causes study problems [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Stress causes study problems By Michelle Lackey She has trouble sleeping at night, and is now smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. It's impossible for her to concentrate on a long term projects, only on what work assignments are due next. Marysue Gaily, a full-time Humanities student who waitresses for 30 hours a week, suffers from a widelyshared problem here at Capitol Campus: stress. But Gailey is not alone in her constant battle to stay on top of school, work, and other daily activities. Approximately 80 to 90 students on campus suffer - either directly or indirectly ~ from some form of stress, according to Edward Beck, coun selor and instructor for the behavioral sciences division. Sometimes, college classes can give students harmful doses of stress and pressure, according to a new University of Utah study. M*ft^Ce4T«ge classes enforce "an overemphasis of grades" and put "unecessary" pressure on students, said David Spendlove, one of three Utah medical instructors who ...
Professors analyze Reagan landslide [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Professors analyze Reagan landslide By Joseph L. Michalsky "I think the party is in deep trouble and I think the Democrats are fooling themselves if they think they lost an election only because Mr. Reagan had the popular vote," said Dr. Robert Bresler, Associate Professor of Public Policy, recently. Bresler and Dr. Micheal Young, Assistant Professor of Social Science and Public Policy, expressed their opinions about the presidential and congressional elections before a crowd of about 40 to SO observers in the Gallery Lounge on November 8. Bresler, who is the Public Policy Division Chair, feels the Democrats have to seriously realign their stragtegy and positions on'the key issues. President Reagan's 59 to 41 percent landslide win over Walter Mondale is not unusual, he said. "Democratic candidates for president have been hovering in the low 40's (in terms of their percentage of the popular vote) and have not been able to crack that barrier," said Bresler. Citing previous pre...
Capitol student's race for House seat starts career [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Capitol student's race for House seat starts career By Mark Edquid For many candidates, a defeat this election year spells the end of their political careers. For one Penn State Capitol Campus student, the disappointment in losing his bid fpr a public office means only a beginning. Joseph P. Oddo, a senior public policy major and last year's Student Government Association president, was soundly defeated in his quest for a seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Running as a republican candidate in the 37th legislative district, Oddo managed to capture 5,142 votes while his opponent, the incumbent Emtt Mrkonic, collected oyer 17,000 votes. "I took a beating," the 26 year-old Oddo explains, "but I did a lot better than most people thought I would." There are approximately 60,000 people in the 37th district which includes Oddo's hometown of McKeesport, "and practically all of them are democrats," Oddo says. Both Mondale and Ferraro campaigned hard in Pittsburgh whi...

CC registration goes on line [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
CC registration goes on line By Ken Stiggers Practical, precise and efficient describe the preprocess in the Records Office here at Capitol Campus. This new system, called "online" registration, eliminates all of the card shuffling and long lines which students have experienced during previous preregistration periods. According to Dorothy Guy, the records and institutional research officer, the "on-line" system became a reality when the staff at the records office identified the areas in which the staff has fallen short in terms of meeting the needs of the registration routine. These needs are met through the use of systems reporting, Guy said, which is a report about enrollment information such as a specific number of students, majors, and courses that students of specific majors are taking. Included with all this are enrollment statistics by major, class, sex, status, and needs. Because the records office here at Capitol cannot obtain most of this information on its own, a...
Business students make movie [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 29 November 1984
Business students make movie By Francoise Hultzapple "I thought I1 was going to be really nervous and embarrassed having someone 'witness'me on the video screen. But, when I watched our finished project with everyone else, it made me feel so much more at ease." Chris Veltri, along with 19 other students from Dr. Refik Culpan's Behavioral Concepts in Business classes, participated in the production of a video case study to be used for class discussion. "In organizational behavior courses," said Culpan, "instructors often use the classical approach to case studies. I wanted to try something different," he explained, "by encouraging students to participate in a role-playing situation in which they have -to create their own character and act it out for video taping." Carolyn R. Dexter, Acting Head of the Business Division, said "active courses" are necessary in education, after she viewed the video earlier this week. "The teaching profession is responsible for providing a packag...
