UNC president on tuition
By JOEL BROADWAY f
Tar Heel News Editor -
UNC students are sure to face a tuition hike this fall, but
UNC President William C. Friday says the exact amount won't
be known until sometime after the UNC Board of Governors
meets next Friday. 7 X'.
The Legislative proposal passed recently by the General As
sembly was the culmination of three months of planning and
compromise, Friday said. The lawmakers, as well as the BOG,
have known for some time that a lack of funds would drive up
We have to realize $10 million," Friday said. "Tuition is
the only way we can raise that.
"We raised in-state tuition 20 percent last time," he said.
"We have tried desperately to contain in-state tuition to 7-12
The tuition increases in the UNC System are based on a bi
ennial rate and are difficult to express in terms of percentages.
The BOG and state lawmakers were very hesitant in their
plans to increase tuition, Friday said.
"Before we did anyting, we looked at the tuition levels of
major universities in the Midwest and the South," he said. The
out-of-state charges of the UNC system were lower than the
middle zone of most fees, Friday said. .

To the readers
This special issue of The Tar Heel the largest issue in
the summer and technically the Orientation issue, is being
sent to all in-coming freshmen and junior transfers
about 5,000 all told. For most, it will be the first glimpse
of UNCs prize-winning 90-year-old publication, The
Daily Tar Heel.
- Although the weekly summer Heel differs from the dai
ly version in physical appearance (this paper is a tabloid,
whereas the DTH is full-sized), the style of writing and
content is modeled after the parent DTH: The papers are
geared to covering campus-related activities, but city,
state and national coverage is also strong. For the DTH
that is essential, considering that the paper is the only
morning daily in Chapel Hill and for many students the
sole source of daily news.
You'll learn more of the rich tradition here later; for
now, enjoy this issue and, perhaps more importantly, en
joy the rest of summer.

More than 6,500 new students will be enrolling at UNC
Many will come with preconceived notions about what the
University is ail about. Others might have new ideas about
education. But invariably, there will be confusion and a
flood of questions that comes every year with a . new
UNC has some of the answers for them in Tar Heel Days
and Orientation '83.
Last weekend, Tar Heel Days concluded this summer's
series of short, informal orientation programs. Nearly 300
new students were given a variety of situations that were like
ly to crop up during a year at UNC, and 20-30 counselors to
help them resolve their crises J
"It's so big," said Sheila Perry from Hertford. "I got here
at 7:30 last night and was immediately lost."
Perry was one of many incoming freshmen that crowded
Woollen Gym's floor Saturday in an abb deviated simulation
of the academic year.
The students were given a variety of options ' social,
academic and extra-curricular activities to choose from.

They went through the events of a school year making deci
sions. They had a mock registration, pretend pep rallies and
even pseudo vacations. After the year was over, they met in
discussion groups, and evaluated their own decisions and
those of their peers.
Thomas Layton, Tar Heel Days' coordinator, said that the
program's goal was to answer any questions parents or their
children may have about the university.
''There are a lot of external factors that influence a stu
dent in college," Layton said. "We are here to let them (the
incoming students) know that they're not alone in their anxi
eties and questions."
The 13 member Orientation Commission began planning
last November for the arrival of the students in August, said
chairperson Debra Wulfhurst..
In February the 20 area coordinators -were recruited for
Orientation '83 .'These people will determine what shape
events will take during the week before classes.
For instance, Wulfhurst said, the commission has required
that a general tour of the campus be given.
"Whether they have a moonlight tour or a scavenger hunt
doesn't matter," she said. "Just so they get what they need
Peggy Cleary, freshman program coordinator for the com
mission, listed some other topics they wanted to discuss.
"There should be programs on the judicial process here,
alcohol awareness, race relations, academics and social alter
natives," she said.
Cleary said that this year there would be a limit of one par
ty with alcohol served during Orientation week for each resi
"There will also be a ration of one keg for every 100 peo
ple expected," she said. " We're emphasizing the importance
of the freshman learning to drink responsibly."
; Geary said that this year's Orientation week would mira
mize the use of alcohol and maximize education and orienta
tion to UNC. r
Wulfhurst said that orientation had a three-fold purpose
to help the student adjust to academic procedures and
life at Carolina.
to help them adjust to the physical geography of fbs
campus and the community.
to help them adjust to campus and dorm life socially. '
The most important thing about the week's events, which
include convocations, two movies, and a field day, is to keep
the new students busy and to enlighten them about college at
the same time, Wulfhurst said.
