Organization variety expands college experience
By LYNN EARLEY
Dill Surr Writer
The day the average freshman landed
on the Hill, his Orientation Counselor
probably told htm to "get involved."
The next night at Convocation, speak
ers told him about all the great oppor
tunities at Carolina to "get involved."
The third day when that same freshman
vaguely mentioned something about
homesickness, someone else mentioned
extra-curricular activities and yelled at
him: "GET INVOLVED!"
By now that student and many others
might be wondering in what they are to
"get involved." Fortunately, UNC of
fers a wide variety of activities for stu
dents interested in extending their col
lege education beyond the classroom. In
almost any area a student's interests lie,
there is an appropriate organization.
One well-known service group is
Alpha Phi Omega, a coed service frater
nity which sponsors activities including
campus blood drives, a textbook co-op,
campus tours and lost and found. APO
also directs Campus Chest Charities.
These charities are fund-raising events,
including an auction, raffles and the
annual Mile of Pennies.
The Campus Y offers the Big Buddy
Program, the Campus-Community Link
(involving students and senior citizens),
the Crafts Bazaar, Hunger Action, Tu
toring and the Walk for Humanity, plus
other scheduled events. The Campus Y
focuses on involvement with the com
munity, international issues and campus

and the UNC Glee Clubs. All of these
musical organizations are open to quali

the Intramurals teams sponsored by
dorm halls or can join one of the sports
clubs. Some of the active sports clubs
last year were the bassmasters, cycling,
crew, football, ice hockey, outing, rao
quetball, rugby, sailing, scuba, soccer,
table tennis, volleyball, water polo, or
water skiing. .
Honoraries are an essential part of
campus life. The Order of the Golden
Fleece honors leadership, inspirational
character and other ideals. The Order of
the Old Well honors academic and extra
curricular achievement. The Order of
the GrailValkyries acknowledges schol

Sigma recognizes freshman . academic

Other Honoraries are the Order of
the Silver Key, Society of Janus, Society
of Hellenas, the Order of Gimghoul,
Order of the Gorgon's Head, Order of
the Gingko, Styx, Alpha Epsilon Delta,
Rho Chi Society and Gamma Beta Ep
silon. Students must be nominated for
most of these societies.

the political arena. The UNC-CH Col

elections and campaigns and offer
speakers and programs. Also politically
active on campus is the UNC Young

Norberg's involvement leads r to higher position
By ELAINE McCLATCHEY
DTH Staff Writer
Scott Norberg was concerned during his freshman
year about the segregation of blacks and whites on cam
pus so he joined the University Services Committee of
Student Government and later became a special assistant
for minority affairs. In his sophomore year, he was se
lected as an executive assistant to the student body presi
dent. He served in that position his junior year until his
election to a new position ... student body president.
This summer Norberg was elected to an even higher
position as president of The University of North Caro
lina Association of Student Governments. Norberg heads
a group of 16 student body presidents in the UNC system.
Norberg said students can have a great impact on what
goes on at the University. There are roughly 100 posi
tions open in the executive branch including committee
positions, residence hall and apartment representatives
and Action Line workers.
The largest number of students are needed for Student
Government Outreach. Outreach is a network of on-and
off-campus students that provides information about
what Student Gdvernment is doing and also acts as a
sounding board for students with complaints. Norberg .
said he hoped to get representatives from every residence .
hall and apartment complex. '
Norberg said this work is an excellent way for new stu
dents to find out about campus issues and get exposure to
the variety of Student Government activities.
Action Line, an information service provided by Stu
dent Government, also provides new students a chance
to learri about the problems on students' minds, he said.
A few committee positions are also available for stu
dents who are interested in concentrating on a particular
subject. Committees include Transportation, Town Rela
tions, Academic Procedures, University Services, Athlet-.
ics, National Affairs, Housing, University Relations,
State Affairs and Student Services.
Students interested in working for Student Govern
ment should go to Suite C on the second floor of the
