Students put careers first

Online survey shows finding the ideal mate
isn't always the goal of every young person

By Author Scott
surr whim '

A recent online survey re
vealed that students are more
compelled to achieve out»
standing success in their ca-
reers. achieve financial stabil-
ity and find job fulfillment
than they are interested in
finding a mate.

“In some ways. it‘s not
shocking because we have
seen a trend of people going on
in school and postponing mar-
riage," said Stephan Wilson.
director of UK's Research Cen
ter of Families and Children.
“We need to be careful be-
cause we don‘t really know if
the study is accurate."

The fact that students
were answering the question
of “what‘s your most com-
pelling long-term need in life."
with a multiple choice answer
probably did not give the
whole picture. Wilson said.

“The age of marriages has
increased more than half a

Wilson said women are
marrying around 26 and men
around 27. People in this age
group are focusing on marry»
ing. because they have complet
ed their life as college students.

“You have people 18-22 an~
swering questions from the
perspective of a student." he
said. ”Do you think that 26-and
27-year-olds would rank mar-
riage higher than success?"

But just because it‘s not
ranked. doesn't mean it‘s not
on the students' agenda.

“Well over 80 percent of
people expect to get married.“
Gregory Brock. chairman of
the family studies department.

Brock has conducted stud—
ies oti a students‘ most pre-
ferred characteristics of their
potential mates in China and
in the United States.

Because its expected to

happen. he said. students do
not really feel compelled to try
to find a mate.

“Choosing a mate is one of
the most profound decisions of
our life. but mostly. we don't
think about it." Wilson said.
“We feel it will fall into place."

Accounting sophomore
.Jennifer Miller said having a
relationship when she gradue
ates might influence her mar»
riage decisions. but the absence
of one will not cause her to
“forego any energies directed to
career success to find a mate."

Many students say they
see themselves married iii the
future. but do not see them
selves working at finding a
lifelong mate.

“I guess I assume that ro-
mance will come. but you‘ve
got to concentrate on a ca-
reer," said (‘hip Beglcy. a po-
litical science senior. “I am
confident I am going to have a
mate. but I do want a success-
ful career."

Many students said get-
ting married is one of their
most important goals for the

“I would choose to have
moderate success and a mate
because those two components
would make for a happier life
than all of one and none of the
other." Miller said.

“I'm not sure if people are
any less enchanted with mac
riage than they were in the
1900s." Brock said. “I think
people want both (success and
a mate). but if they were forced
to choose. they will tend to
seek family and marriage."

Stacey Herriagc. an art cd
ucation junior. said she plans
on getting married. “If it's the
right person. you'll have some
sort of support and compaii

“Family and marriage is
where most of our resources
and support in our lives come
from." Brock said. “Over-
whelmingly. family is the
most important factor in pro
ple's lives.“

A trend away from rela-
tionships toward personal
success is suggested by the re-
sults ofthe poll. which can be

looking at
soft money

National project on campaign
contributions in early stages

By Mark Vanderhoff
garment?“ Ad“-

l,'K political science professors Penny
Miller and Donald Gross are participating in
a national research project on soft money.

Miller and Gross are gathering informa»
tion on the Bunning Baesler Senate race and
the Scorsone Fletcher House race to “ascorr

rectly accounted for looking at the campaign
expenditures ofthe candidates." Gross said.

The study. titled “l'ndisclosod and [Tn-
regulated Money in Congressional Elec-
tions." will examine soft-money contribu»
tions in 1.3 states.

The races being studied were chosen be-
cause they were expected to be close and to
involve significant amounts of soft money.

"In a high-spending race like Ken
tucky. wht-n you get near the race it‘s al-
most impossible to find radio and TV ads
because w~entiaTIy all the time is bought
up.” he said.

"These outside funding sources are
coming in with a lot of money and trying
to buy. for example. maybe 350.000 worth
of TV time they might only get 83.000
worth in one market. so then they go and
put money into another market.” he said.

UK women split first two meets with Indiana
and Tennessee, men look to regain stroke

By Michael Heppermann

Come on in. the water‘s
nice and warm.

At least it will be by the end
of the season. if things go ac-
cording to how UK swim coach
Gary Conelly sees them.

The UK swimming and div-

ahead. but two meets last
month gave Conelly a glimpse
of what's to come.

women came away with the


split by sinking Indiana. but
the men came up shallow in
both meets.

“On the women‘s side. we
have a real strong team." he
said. “I‘d be surprised if they
lose another meet all year."

If it didn't lose another
meet all year. it would match
its 8-1 dual meet record from
last year. just one of many lofty
goals to match from last season.

watched them play hard through easy wins
and painful losses. I watched the games
from the press box not only as a sports
writer on a beat. but also as a fan. a true fan.

The team struggled early in the season.


This season. I had the good fortune of

The UK men's soccer team ended its season last weekend
with a 12-9 overall record, but came up short in MAC tourney

losing its first five games. They came back
to record a seven-game winning streak and
seemed to have put the early losses behind
them. Then came Akron and a crushing de-
feat. The loss killed the spirit of the team.
driving them into a depression that handed
them a second defeat in a match that
should have been a 5—0 win in UK's favor.

Sports writers scoffed and wrote off the
Cats" NCAA Tournament dream.

“Impossible." the critics said. “Just
look at their record."

But the record didn't indicate how the
team played. The record didn‘t show the
spirit in the players hearts. even when they
lost to teams they could have and should
have annihilated.

“They showed a lot of character." I'K
head coach Ian (‘ollins said. “A lot of teams
would have packed it in. The team kept
coming back."

Forward Ryan Grady called it pride.
But it was tnore than just pride in a team.
it was the love of the game. the desire to
play the game and play it hard. no matter
the outcome.

Several fans. asking for anonymity for
fear of retaliation by Collins against the
players. were angry with the strategy the
team adopted. They questioned (‘ollins' in»

six defenders and a goalkeeper. When of-
