Race is not a factor in Behrend admissions [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 February 1999
Race is not a factor in Behrend admissions by Will Jordan editor in chief Affirmative action, which began with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, greatly affected the hiring of minorities in the private sector at its outset, but in recent years has slowly fallen to the wayside. Affirmative action tried to provide equal opportunities for minorities, women, and the disabled in the work force and schooling. To find out more about affirmative action at Behrend an interview was conducted with Janique Caffie, who is the Director of Kducational Equity Programs. Caffie stated. "We have a policy that we do not discriminate against any student regardless of their race, gender, sexual preference, or background. I! you wart to say that that's our affirmative action policy, then yes we have one." However Caffie believes that affirmative action does exist in some ways at Behrend. "In terms of what the original definition of affirmative action is. as far as cre ating an even and level playing...
Listening to all that jazz [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 February 1999
Listening to all that jazz by Danielle Marshall staff writer Last Friday, Behrend had the privilege of enjoying the smooth, relaxing sounds of jazz music. The delicious finger-foods from Bruno's, and the reflective and studious writings and readings of our talented students were also a part of the event. This event was sponsored by the National Society of Black Engineers and Janique Caffie, Director of Educational Equity Programs. Many students read poetry of fa mous authors and even pieces written from their imaginary minds. Heather Robinson, 02 DUS, stated, "It was fun, but when I had to speak I was nervous. But being around a lot of people who were supportive made me feel good." Everyone enjoyed the hysterical jokes from the comical Kim Moses, 05 MET. and the deep and intensive words expressed from NSBE president Russell Jean-Baptiste.

Review: Step Into the Shadows at the Studio Theatre by Valerie Trost staff writer On Tuesday night, I had the privilege of being one of the first to view Behrend's spring production The Visit. It is necessary to first congratulate director Tony Elliot and the entire cast for successfully executing this challenging and unique production. The Visit is like nothing I have ever seen before. The production is a disturbingly entertaining story of betrayal and corruption. It takes the audience on an unforgettable, strange, and frightening journey into the very darkest side of human nature. Sullen shadows are cast on the town of Gullen, Germany, as the people wait in anticipation for the return of the enormously wealthy Claire Zachanassian. The town has been somehow mysteriously cursed and left in economic ruin. Claire was born and raised in Gullen and the townspeople are desperately hoping she will come to their aid. She is more than willing to help but wants something in return. T...

The men's and women's basketball teams have won the AMCC Championships-full story page 10. by Ryan Cannon staff writer On a desolate Thursday night, some Behrend students were fearing the harsh reality of spending the upcoming Valentine's day weekend alone. So it was decided to hold a singles "Dating Game" style game show. It was entitled "Singled Out," and many of Behrend's lonely hearts arrived at Perry Hall to find true love or something to occupy their time. One of the two was definitely accomplished.

The game was structured so that a male or female, selected beforehand, sat out of view of the contestants, but could be easily seen by the audience.

The Women's Health Center [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 18 February 1999
The Women's Health Center A view from the lighthouse The Women's Health Center, which is a branch of the Health and Wellness Center, is one of the most important facilities on campus. It offers many inexpensive services such as the "morning after pill," gynecological exams, HIV testing, condoms, and diaphragms to women. Without the Women's Health Center, women living on campus would have to find women-related services elsewhere. Unwanted pregnancies and illnesses would be the result, due to the fact that the students would have to search for a gynecologist offcampus (This requires a lot of time and effort.) Ultimately, women would probably end up not going to receive birth control and either services. These women would then end up dropping out of college due to unwanted diseases and pregnancies. The women staff is all very friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. Everything revealed by the patient remains in confidence. Support services, such as counseling are also offered to ...
