stimulating. Wearing school colors or affordable FSU T-shirts on a special day during the week of an upcoming sports event.-Dorchell Hurst We feel that, since our schedules freguently do not permit us to attend the local games, wearing something as a symbol shows we are supporting our university at least in spirit. That practice would help commuters feel less alienated from the campus. Forums are scheduled at times less likely for commuting students to attend. When this comment was made, several ideas came to mind. Perhaps a particular forum could be scheduled in the evening or on a weekend, in addition to normal scheduling times. It also might tielp commuting students to have the forum i^ideotaped to view at ^heir own leisure, prhis procedure might also enable them to earn extra credit points because some j courses require that a student attend at least one or two forums. We need activities that will cater to non-traditional students because of our mature age status, like gospel programs. Danyce Hill Not discounting the traditional students' role at the university, non-traditional students would like to have entertaining programs that will appeal to a variety of students and not just cater to the younger crowd. More class sections should be offered. Some commuting students might have to wait an additional semester to graduate in order to take a particular class because of the scheduling offered by the university. For example, if the student wants to sign up for African-American History or French, and the section available is offered only in the afternoons, that scheduling may present a problem to commuting students who must schedule their classes in the morning. This newspaper should provide a great opportunity for commuting students to have their voices heard on important issues that concern them. I think that setting up a commuting student suggestion box, encouraging students to mail in comments, or exploring other avenues of communication would be a logical start for fellow commuting students to feel a part of FSU.
