Yale University re-

Apples are high in

“Morally, we can leave no
American behind.”

- Jesse Jackson, speaking to students at Transylvania University.

Power to the people






The Rev. Jesse Jackson (above) addressed a group of about 500 yesterday at Transylvania University as part of a tour of speeches he is giving around the area. Construction workers (from left)
John Cato, Steven Campbell and Wayne Kincaid watched on as Jesse Jackson spoke at Transylvania University. "It's good," said Cato of the speech. “We need everything he was talking about."

Putting ‘light in dark places’

Area in need: The Rev. Jesse Jackson made a stop on his
speaking tour at Transylvania University to promote overall
improvement in the lifestyles of people in Appalachia


Five hundred people stood on
the lawn of the Old Morrison
building at Transylvania Univer-
sity to listen to the inspired
words of one the most respected
politicians in America.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson visited
the campus yesterday to give his
speech, “Leave No American Be-
hind: A March for Appalachia."

“We need to go to Appalachia

He said politicians and reli—
gious leaders consistently “ignore

He discussed several of the
most pressing issues in the re-
gion. including the high mortality
rates. short life expectancies and
poor quality of education.

These issues result from a fail-

ure to consider the needs of non-
voting residents in these areas.

“If we can change the amount
of voters in Appalachia by 15 per
cent. we can change the face of
Congress." Jackson said.

Jackson also discussed other
issues outside of Appalachia.

He spoke about the overall
change in America since his

Jackson said youth is the dri-
ving force in the future of this na-
tion. but their present impact on
the world cannot be ignored.

"Young America is going to
make America better." Jackson

He also made stops in
Pikcville. Mud Creek. Ky. Ohio
and West Virginia. where spoke
on a number of issues ranging
from black lung disease to health
care to jobs.

The Rev. Jackson will lead a
march at Hocking College in Nel-
sonville. Ohio on Sept. 27. from

Continued from paqei

transition into American cul-
ture less stressful.

Welcome and orientation
classes are Ofl‘ered at the begin-
ning of the semester and a vari-
ety of activities, such as hikes
at Red River Gorge and Natural
Bridge, are offered throughout
the year.

WIN w Wildcat Interna-
tional Network — co-sponsored
by the Student Government As-
sociation and the Office of Inter-
national Affairs, pairs Ameri-
can and international students.
So far 54 students have been
paired, Holmes said

Although many students
have visited the United States
prior to coming to UK, the first
impression is usually the

“It‘s so green," said Vivre
Segerholm's, a Finnish linguis-
tic major and English minor
from Helsinki, Finland, when
she first arrived at UK.

Segerholm has relatives in
Connecticut, so the transition
for her was less drastic and cul-
ture shock was minimal, espe-
cially because of “the American
culture we have in Finland, like
movies, McDonald‘s, Pizza Hut
and sitcoms," she said.

Class structure at UK is one
of the major differences stu-
dents must adapt to.

For Anton lmennov, a grad-
uate student from St. Peters-
burg, Russia, the class atmos-
phere is “more democratic. with
the professors wanting to be on
the same level as the students.”

Segerholm is “shocked" at
the amount of homework as-
signed. Finland uses the concept
of academic liberty with students
deciding if they attend class or
not, she said. At the end of the se
mester, one final is given.

Sonia Boyer, an English lit-
erature senior from the French
tropical island Reunion, said
there is more graded work at
UK, but said it makes sure stu-
dents keep up during the course
of the semester.

Food is another big change
many international students
confront. Boyer loves Mexican
food but can‘t enjoy it on the is-
land, which mainly cooks a
mixture of Indian. Chinese and

African food. Segerholm and
lmennov both said American
food isn't healthy enough.

“Being a vegetarian, it's
hard to find something
healthy," Segerholm said.

Before being accepted to at-
tend UK, those interested must
have the necessary English lan-
guage requirements and pass the
test of English as a foreign lan-
guage, TOEFL. Students have to
show academic strength, finan-
cial support and an ability to
study in English, Holmes said.

Many international stu-
dents studied English in school
and at their university. lmen-
nov has been learning English
since he was 9 years old.

“It was not that hard be-
cause it was step by step," he
said. “But for me, it’s like learn-
ing Chinese for you."

Segerholm has been learn-
ing English since seventh grade
and said the language difficul-
ties are mostly in her head.

“It‘s the perfectionist in
me," she said.

Meeting new people in a dif-
ferent culture is one of the ad-
vantages international students
have, and for Holmes, one of the
best aspects of her job is “leam-
ing from students about their
countries and cultures and how
they perceive Americans."

Americans are very friend-
ly and open, but it seems a little
superficial, Friebe said. Imen-
nov has taken advantage of the
chance to meet new people.

“I thought it will be a bor-
ing place, but when I came here
I met a lot of interesting peo-
ple," he said.

70 percent of international
students come from Asia, while
11 percent arrive from Europe
and about 5 percent from

“I love the cultural dimen-
sion of my job," Holmes said.

As international students
begin to adjust to their new sur-
roundings and customs, they
look forward to the new experi-
ences and adventures the com-
ing year will bring.

“In only these two weeks."
Friebe said, “I have realized
how big an opportunity it is to
study abroad."


POT elevators
on the way up

Tough love: While elevators are being updated, faculty,
students still have horror stories about using them

By June: W. Smith

Political science junior Debbie Per-
ry is like many students at UK.
She has a story about the Patterson

Office Tower elevators.

“I was here a few days ago trying
to get upstairs to see one of my teach-
ers, but I gave up trying because the
hall was so packed," Perry said.

In May, the DC Elevator Company
began a two-phase project to renovate

the elevators in POT.

“The first phase ended just before
school started and that was the repair
of the first three elevators," said Pro-

ject Manager Bob Williams.

“The project’s second phase, the
renovation of the remaining three ele-
vators, is scheduled to end in early


Stories about the horrors of the
POT elevators abound among students.
Adam Little, a marketing sopho-
more, said he heard an elevator once

stopped and dropped 12 floors.

Most faculty who have Offices in

Johnson said she is still apprehen-
sive about the new elevators and has
considered holding office hours in a

Johnson said there was a malfunc-
tion in the new elevators last week,
and the displayed number did not cor-
respond with the actual floor number.

“Certainly the elevators are not
flawless, but they’re a vast improve-
ment,” she said. “It’s worse if you try
to use the elevators on the hour,

Geography professor Stan Brunn
said he can remember several stories
about elevators dropping or stopping

He said although the new elevators
are a definite improvement, it creates a
traffic problem in the hallways.
