Undeclared students
‘ to get new advisers

By James Ritchie
Senior Staff 1V ritrr

Undeclared students will soon
no longer regard the College of
Arts and Sciences as their academ—
ic home.

Currentl ', students who have
not declareda major receive advis-
ing from the Central Advising and
Transfer Center and are listed
under the College ofArts and Sci—
ences. -

Under the new plan, responsi—
bility for both advising and official
action on students will rest with
Central Advising.

“They’re going back and forth
between two units (under the pre-
sent system),” said Louis Swift,
dean of undergraduate studies.

Swift said with the new plan,
status and advising will be consoli-
dated for undeclared students, and
the College of Arts and Sciences
can focus more attention on sup-
porting its own students.

The change will not affect pre—

ticular college but have not yet
chosen or gained access to a par-
ticular program. These students
will continue to receive advisin in
the college where they intend: to
major. An amendment to the pro-
posal stipulates that non-degree
students taking courses and bein I
advised in a specific college wifl
not be reassigned.

Mandy Lewis, Student (lov-
crnment Association's social work
senator, voiced concern that stu-
dents assigned to Central Advis—
ing, rather than a particular col-
lege, might not be given represen-
tation in SGA.

Swift and Senate Chair Jan
Schach said they were sure the
problem could be addressed.

“I will assure you that these
students will be represented,”
Schach said.

On another to ic, the senate
passed a set of gui elines for eval-
uating alternate means of satisfy—
ing the oral Communication
requirement in the University
Studies Program.

tecture professor, said it was clear
that some programs “aren't meet-
ing the spirit” of the oral commu-
nication requirement through
their alternatives.

General principles of the new
guidelines include the following

Students will:

VReceive instruction from
individuals with formal or special-
ized training in oral communica-
tion. Instructors don‘t have to
have a degree or have taken for-
mal courses in communication,
but they must have sufficient

VUse appropriate resource
materials, such as textbooks.

VHave substantial opportuni-
ties to practice, receive comment
and be evaluated on their compe-

VBe required to develop the
ability to communicate with a
variety of audiences beyond the
specific discipline.

Roommates C.J. llarlow, a
communications junior, and
Travis Patterson, a biology

junior, are the only two members
from the UK chapter of Pi Kappa
Phi to ride on the Journey.

The pro ram accepts only 60
students rom undergraduate
members of Pi Kappa Phi nation-
wide a year. The selection process
includes filling out an application;
going through a 45-minute phone
interview, conducted by Chad
Coltrane, director of special
events for PUSH America; and
submitting three references.
PUSH America’s message is to
serve people with developmental
disabilities in unique and inspir—
ing ways.

The “Journey of Hope” was
started 10 years ago by Bruce
Rogers, a member of the Stetson
University chapter, in Florida.
The 63-day event begins in San
Francisco, with cyclists ridin an
average of 75 miles per day, fir a
total of 3,500 miles. In addition to
riding, the team will educate chil~

“I want to take my summer to
do something to help people, and
to especially help children with
disabilities," Patterson said. He
also said that “the mission of the
ride is to show what people with
disabilities can do, not what they
can’t." .

Patterson is proud to be part of
the dedication that is strong
enough to care.

“lt will be one of the greatest
experiences oftny life," he said.

llarlow agreed.

“1 think the Journey of l lope is
an opportunity of a lifetimc. and
it is amazing to have such an
impact on disabled children’s
lives," he said. llarlow also said
he feels that it “is a once in a lift»

Coltrane, who rode in 1991
and was project manager in 1902,
said Harlow and Patterson are
two of “the best of the best for
what our fraternity has to offer
across the country.”

The Journey progam reached
24 million people last year. They
want to reach more this year and
to raise over $300,000 for the

Graduate students lllSGIISS Bl'lBBtS Ill budget cuts

By Ellzalietli Flynn
Contributing Writer

Reductions in UK‘s budget have lead graduate
students to discuss the formation of the UK Organi-
zation of Graduate Students (UKOGS).

Although many issues are discussed, their con-
cerns about how proposed budget cuts affect under-
graduate education top the list.

Last night, the UKOGS met to discuss the future
interest of undergraduate education and graduate

Guidelines have not been established for the
organization. but they hope to set u a structure
where concerns can be addressed an information
can be decimated.

“I am upset that the administration announced
that they‘re cutting 20 percent of TA jobs, then they
come back and announce the are not cutting TA
positions. Where did it come om in the first place,
is it bears: P They wonder why we are mad,” said
TA Carol aliger.

At the beginning of the meeting, organizers had
Ihpped to name a ppsidcnt or spokesperson gwork


in conjunction with three vice president sitions.
However, a consensus was not met to etermine
exactly how the organization will select positions.

No job descriptions have been defined but the
structure would address social, interdisciplinary
teaching scholarship and advocacy issues.

UKOGS does not want to be primarily concerned
with political issues or unionization.

UKOGS’s mission is to promote interdisci—
plinary teaching and scholarship, to foster graduate
student interaction and to advocate graduate student
concerns before the university and the state legisla-

UKOGS members think budget cuts will increase
the number of students in a section and eliminated
the individual attention that undergraduates receive.

If they gut education bgcliminating TAs. how
can we have a higher quality of education, said histo-
ry TA BartJarmusch.

Graduate students said without the extra class sec—
tions that TAs provide, students would be in very
large classes making it harder to enroll in a class.

The aduate students added that at a time when
the sta and administratiop are trying to make UK

more competitive, they have threatened to cut jobs
therefore hurting undergraduate education.

Undergraduates have shown support for the TAs
vocal concerns. During last week’s rally over budget
cuts, both graduate and undergraduate students

“The rally was a success, people were actually
readin the flyers. The rally was not hosted by the
UKO 5, it was individuals showing support and
vocalizing concern,” said English TA Merrie Win-

In the interest.of undergraduate education and
graduate students at UK, UKOGS will continue to
actively protest budget cuts.

UKOGS’s would like to see the decision making
process concerning budget cuts be public rather than
a private matter where everyone finds out the deci-
sion after it has already been made.

UKOGS’s objective is to become involved in the
administration’s decision making process and
encourages TA: in all departments to get involved.

“We are looking for suggestions. We began with
an idea, a reserved room and a name and we’re
expending frpm there,” said Merrie VVInfrey. ‘

Day after day, four interior design graduate stu-
dents walked past the unused room at 112 lirikson
Hall and noticed students studying on the floor
outside ofthe classroom.

“lt was just a really bad place for students to

Black said.

Since the room had gone largely unused since
its days as a computer lab, lilack and fellow interi <

The four students rctclvcd a $5,000 grant from
the Donovan Trust last year to renovate the room.

The grant stipulated that the room must reflect
culture and refinement by representing a range of
art movements to which students otherwise would
not be exposed.

“\Vhen designing the room. we wanted to
ensure the rootn would have the most opportuni-
ties for students to use the room." Black said.

In one week in March, the grant proposal was
written; from there the group worked on the

“ c pretty much spent the whole spring break
putting this together,” Miller said.

But the members of the group were not
strangers to each other, since they Worked in the
same office. Each person was assigned a task
reflecting their special abilities in interior design.

As the summer months passed and the redesign
they roposed was put into motion, they learned
that t ey had received the grant. Some of the work
in the redesign included lugging old as lines and
removing countertops t at were useri for experi-
ments when the room was used as a chemistry lab.

The interior desi students redesigned the
room using the Art eco style, characterized b
curved lines, round, plump form, and an overa l
mood of sleek sophistication. Everything from the
posters on the wall to the furniture reflect the style
of the era.

Tables, chairs and posters of the Art Deco peri-

books, journals and trade magazines for students'
use, and the room is equipped so students can lug

out they were not one of the 64
teams selected for the NCAA
