Officials: Many reasons some minorities leave school


By Amy Rogers
Contributing Writer


Minority stttdent enrollment at
UK is on the rise. But tio students
stay after they get here‘.‘

Most freshmen who receive fi-
nancial aid frorii Minority Student
Fiscal Affairs remain at the Univer-
sity past the first year.

But in the spring 1901 semester,
56 out of the 4-17 students who res
cerved scholarships or grants from

the minority affairs ollrce III the fall
semester did not return.

Joyce Beau). director oi Mtnori»
ty Student FISCUI :\ll;Ilr\‘, said there
are a number oi reasons why stu<
dents do not return.

Some sttrdeuts lose eligibility for
grants or scholarships becatrse of
poor academic periorrnance. she
said. Scholarships and grants re
quire students to maintain a certain
grade-point average.

Other students simply carniot af-

ford to pay expenses that linancial
aid does not cover.

“It’s a matter of personal budget
and personal problems,“ Beatty
said. “Financial aid is there. The
fact is, not everyone is eligible."

The minority affairs oiitce pro-
vides support for students in aca~
dernic trouble.

The learning Services Center. a
unit of Minority Student Fiscal Af-
fairs provides academic and person—
al counseling for students.

The center also proitdes tutorial
services, goal setting workshops
and peer counselors.

In addition to these services,
there is a learning specialist who
helps students with time manage-
rnetit. study skills and writing.

Small grotip sessions are a part of

the program, as well.

The most requested service at
learning services is tutoring. The
tutorial .ser\ tc es are iree.

If a tutor is not available for a

specific subject. one will be provid-
ed for the student.

Students who retene scholar-
ships and grants from Minority Stu—
dent Fiscal Al‘fatrs rtteet with coun-
selors from learning Services three
times durtrig the semester to review
academic perfonnance

“Take .i\cademtc Control" is a
program involving students and
their counselors. .-\t the meetings.
students are encouraged to study
and ask counselors questions".
