Black Chi-O pledge says race insignificant

For the first time in recent history,

UK students viewed yesterday’s
trial run of a new order for Add/
Drop with mixed emotions, both ap—
plauding and scorning the attempt
by the UK Registrar’s Office to
give freshmen a chance to go
through the procedure without has-

Graduates students and seniors
were followed by freshmen. juniors,
sophomores and non-degree stu-
dents, which was a break from tradi—

Several students interviewed of-
fered varying opinions of the pro-
cess. Graduate students generally
were pleased with the process. But
most of the complaints stemmed
from seniors and sophomores.

Lisa Collins. director of registra-
tion, said she thought the process
went well and said she couldn’t un-
derstand why seniors had corn-
plaints, because they have first pri-
ority during Advanced Registration
and Add/Drop.

“Add/Drop went as smooth as hu-
manly possible," she said.

“However, I can understand why
a sophomore would have been upset
because last year sophomores were
last and this year sophomores were
last," she said. “Anytime you make
a drastic change in a system that‘s
this complex, somebody is going to
be at the bottom of the heap. Some-
body is always at the bottom of the
heap and that‘s the way it has to be.

“If the students do not absolutely
like this system, we will certainly
consider changing it, but I don’t
think you're going to find too many
freshmen out there who are dissatis-
f led." she added.

Graduate students were required
this year to go to an assigned site
for their major. Although the line
was long at the central site, one per—

consider that milestone to be a mon-
umental one. She’s just happy to be
a member.

“I just went through rush with an
open mind,” Weaver said. “It was
the group of girls I met. I felt more
at home at (Chi Omega) and the
girls felt more genuine. It wasn’t
anything like I expected.”

Weaver. who was Homecoming
Queen at Eastern High School in
Louisville last year, said that con-
vincing her parents was the hardest

“They are very supportive, now,”
she said. “But my mom really
wasn't for it at first. She thought it
was just a social thing. But she is

really impressed with Chi O’s aca-
demic record.”

James Kuder, vice chancellor for
student affairs, said Weaver’s mem-
bership was a reflection on the
whole University.

“It a sign of change at the Univer-
sity, a positive sign," he said. “Our
sororities have been involved in di-

versity for quite a while."

Kuder and Chancellor for the
Lexington Campus Robert Hemen-
way talked with sorority leaders
about the irnportance of diversity.
But he said he doesn‘t see a connec-
tion between Weaver’s joining and
what sorority leaders were told.

“I don't think this is a reaction to

a speech." Kuder said. “It‘s a
change that has been occurring over
a number of years. I’m not in favor
of any group that Chooses members
on the basis of race."

More than 600 girls participated
in the fall rush. Five of them were

BOT waives international fee

News Editor

The UK Board of Trustees yester-
day voted to waive a controversial
fee aimed at international students.

On the recommendation of the fi-
nance committee. the board decided
not to repeal the fee until it could be
studied further, but agreed to sus-
pend the fee for the 1990-91 aca-
demic year.

“I think we owe it to students to
take some positive action on this
matter," said interim President
Charles Wethington during yester-
day’s BOT finance committee meet-

“Personally, I would have liked to
have seen it repealed, but their deci-
sion to waive the fee is a move in
the right direction," said Herb Mas—
sey, associate dean of the Intema-
tional Program for Agriculture and
chairman of the International Stu-
dent Environment Committee,
which was formed to study the
stnicturc of the fee.

“I guess since the board was not
prepared to repeal the fee at this
time, it seems that have something
else in mind," Massey said. “But I
have no idea if they will reinstate
the fee after having studied it for a

The fee, which applies to all inter-
national students at the University
on a 1-1 or F-l visa, was $50 per sc
mester and $25 for the summer ses-

The BOT approved the fee on
May 3. 1988, but it did not go into
effect until fall 1989.

International students were not no—
tified of the fee until the University
added it to their bill last fall.

Students then began protesting
the fee, claiming it was discrimina—
tory. said Student Government As-
sociation President Sean Lohman,
who sits on the BOT.

The ISE committee, after careful-
ly studying the fee, recommended to
the BOT that the fee be repealed.
The reasons cited were a lack of stu-
dent participation in the establish-
ment of the fee. students‘ concerns
that no other “special groups" had to
pay such a fee, and that no bench-
mark institutions impose such a fee
on international students.

The University will re-evaluate
services provided to inlemational
students and the board will discuss
the need for a fee sometime during
the 1990-91 academic year.

BOT members said the fact that so
many student groups, including
SGA. opposed the fee was a large
factor in their decision to suspend
the fee.

But despite arguments that the fee
is discriminatory, some board mem-
bers did not agree with its suspen—

BOT member Ted Bates. who vot-
ed against repealing the fee during
the finance committee meeting. said
he was content with the board‘s de-

Because the fee already had been
figured into the 1990-91 University
budget. Bates said “the money will
have to come from somewhere

’Ihe fee generated revenues for
the Office of Intemational Affairs
to provide support services for in-
tcmational students.

“1 am in favor of international
students. but I'm not in favor of
their request to cancel the fee."
Bates said. “I‘m sure that we Will
come up with a fair solution to the
problem, though."

ISE committee member Prasad
Pai, an Indian graduate student.
argued last spring that the fee is un-
fair because tuition for international
students already is considerably
higher than for Kentucky residents.

“The fee is definitely a discrimi-
natory aspect," Pai said last spring.
lt “defeats the purpose of Chancel-
lor‘s (Robert Hemenway's) ‘intcr-
nationalization' of this campus."

BOT member Jim Rose argued at
the finance committee meeting that
the fee shouldn‘t be repealed be-
cause he said it is wrong to be “sub-
sidizing" international students “to
the detriment of some of our own

Lohman said he was glad the
board waived the tee, because “it
needs to be studied further. and 1
don‘t think it's fair to charge stu~
dents with a fee that hasn't been
thought through.’

Candidates for UK president

You won’t find UK 100 in the
schedule book, but it is offered as a
class, and you do get credit for it ~

UK 100 is a freshman orientation
pilot course being offered this fall,
for the second time.

Incoming freshmen received a
one-page tlyer from UK explaining
the course and were asked to send it
back if they were interested. An
overwhelming number — S72 stu-
dents -_. responded with interest.

However, due to limited space,
only 200 students could be random-
ly chosen to participate in the class,
which mt‘x'ts for 75 minutes, twice a
week, for six weeks.

UK has doubled enrollment for
the class this semester, registering
200 people in eight sections and
turning away almost 400 more stu«
dents who expressed an interest in
the class.

“1 think students kind of realized
by the end of (last year’s) class that
it Is an honor because only 200 can

be accepted,” said Stanley Brunn, a
UK geography professor and UK
100 instructor.

According to Becky Jordan, as-
sistant dean of students and co-
coordinator of UK 100, this is the
last semester UK 100 can be offered
because of University regulations
on pilot programs. She said UK is
trying to get the class offered on a
permanent basis.

Class topics include time manage-
ment, note-taking, test—taking, stress
management, alcohol and drugs, hu-
man sexuality, cultural diversity,
professors and advisers and the tran-
sition from high school to college.

“It’s really to help them be a bet-
ter student and retain them at the
University. Many students learn the

hard way and may waste a semester
or a year in the process," Brunn said

“We’re trying to hit issues that
will help them as students.” Jordan

Brunn said that the responses
from last year's classes were very
positive but included some good
suggestions about how to improve

“Some students were wanting
more specific information,” like
preparing for tests and examina-
tions, he said.

“I think last year, since it was the
first time we offered it, we probably
talked about some things that really
were not that important to students
their first semester here," Brunn
said. “Not too many freshmen want
to know about higher education or
administrative positions.”

Students not only learn about
study habits but also get to know
students and faculty members.

Jordan said: “It’s really exciting
to see what a good experience it is
and the camaraderie and relation-

ship that forrns between the faculty
and students."

The first class meeting is an “ice-
breaker" session designed to get stu-
dents and faculty acquainted and to
encourage class participation, Brunn

The class is offered as a one-
credit hour pass/fail course that is
taught by faculty volunteers chosen
by the coordinators.

“Instructors are carefully chosen
~ they pick people who are inter-
ested in students and are good in-
structors and communicators,”
Brunn said. “This is really an extra
effort. 1 think all we get out of it is a
free lunch and a lot of extra meet-

Eight faculty members will teach
sections this year. Returning from
last year are Brunn; Don Colliver,
agricultural engineering professor;
and Jane Peters. an professor. New
instructors this year are Léurette
Byars, acting vice chancellor for mi-
nority affairs and a social work pro-
fessor; Juanita Fleming, nursing pro-
fessor; Joe Davis, agricultural
economics professor; .lim Applegate
and Enid Waldhart, communications

Asked if anyone has failed the or-
ientation class, Brunn said: “I think
maybe one person failed result-

ate student —— said he was pleased
with how smoothly the procedure

Seniors, however, did not have
such a trouble-free ride. Many sen-
iors ended up waiting for 40 to 60
minutes at the Student Center, the
central site.

That wait wasn’t planned for, Col-
lins said, because very few seniors
were expected to Add/Drop. It was
believed that seniors would know
what classes they needed for their fi-
nal year and thus would not have to
change their schedules.

The Registrar’s Office did not
count on people like Leigh Annc
Claywell, a senior who declared her
English major just last spring. She
had no choice but to tolerate the
long waiting period to Add/Drop.

“I needed to get certain classes in
ccnain things in order to get out, to
pick up classes that I hadn’t planned
to take until the spring,” Claywell

“I’m really surprised. I didn't
think it was going to be this long

again," she added “You keep think-
ing it ’1] get shorter but it never

Claywell called the waiting “ridic-
ulous,” and she believed it was un-
lfair for freshmen to be second in

“Freshmen need to wait like we
had to do when we were freshmen,"
she said.

She also advised that seniors have
decentralized Add/Drop, like the
graduate students.

“I think they should have separate
lines for different majors for seniors
anyway because seniors are the ones
who want to get out of here —
they‘re close to getting out of here,"
she said.

Some, such as Lisa Elkins, a psy-
chology senior, were prepared for
the long wait.

“It’s not that I don‘t mind (the
wait), but I expect it," she said.

Seniors were not the only ones
suffering from the long lines. Al-
though freshmcn were allowed to
file in line starting at 10 am, many
found themselves waiting for scn-
iors to finish add/dropping.
