University keeps tabs
on students with files
on all those enrolled
By BEN PERKOWSKI
If you are an enrolled student at UNC, there is a file with your
name on it.
There's also a file on you if you receive financial aid and
another one in the school or department in which you major.
The whole student file process begins before a student takes his
first course as a freshman. The summer before a student comes to
UNC, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions makes a folder
containing information pertinent to the student's academic
career, said Richard Cashwell, director of undergraduate admis
sions. Cashwell said the folder, which later goes to the General Col
lege, contains little more than the student's formal educational
record, including such information as high school transcripts and
standardized test scores. Margaret Folger, associate director of
undergraduate' admissions, said that items such as letters of
recommendation and other subjective evaluations are destroyed
after "the student is enrolled.
One component of the admissions folder is a predicted grade
point average for the student's first year. Cashwell said the predic
tions are based on how students with similar credentials, SAT
scores and high school rank have done in the past.
"On the whole these predictions bear out reasonably well, but
there are also cases where it has been way off," he said.
After the files are sent to the General College, they are kept in
the student's appointed adviser's office where they can be seen at
any time by the student. Grades, dropadd transactions, passfail
declarations, registration slips, professor's comments and other
such information are collected and stored in the folder.
After the first two years of college, the file is sent to the stu
dent's adviser in whichever school the student moves to from the
Central records are also kept in the Office of Records and
Registration in Hanes Hall with information sent'from the stu
dent's particular school. All information concerning a student's
performance before coming to UNC is destroyed 10 years after
graduation, said Robert Corn well, associate director of records.
But the formal records of a student's performance at UNC are
"We have students' records from as far back as 1903," he said.
Files in the Student Aid Office contain the financial aid applica
tion submitted by the student and his parents (if the student is a
dependent), all financial awards given to the student and the
parent's financial statement, said Financial Aid Director Eleanor
Morris said the files are only open to the staff of the Student
Aid Office and the student. "The financial statement is not open
.to the. student if the parents so request," she said.

What happens to former student body
A close look at Triangle area law
schools and government offices may help
answer that question. The activities of t'.
past six student body presidents have
been similar since they graduated from
The pattern begins with the oppor
tunities opened to students elected to the
office of student body president. 1979
Student Body President J.B. Kelly sum
marized the former presidents' opinions
about the possibilities the office holds for
"I thought because the president of the
student body is on the Board of Trustees
as a voting member that the office was a
place for students to air their views from
a position of some authority," Kelly said.
"It's probably the only student-elected
position that could do that."
Kelly is currently enrolled in his final
year of law school at UNC. He said he
hoped to join a law firm in Raleigh upon
Although the presidents agreed on the
possibilities open to a student body presi
dent while in office, they disagreed on the
advantages it could bring after gradua
tion. Mike Vandenbergh, 1982 Student
Body President, said the office had cer
tain positive effects.
"It resulted in the job I'm in now,"
Vandenbergh said. "I began to become

of instant credibility while looking for

said. "Also, the pension plan at the
White House is certainly better than at
After graduation, Moss spent some
time in Hollywood writing scripts. He
said he did not sell any of his work, but
did generate some interest. He is currently
enrolled in his final year of law school at
UNC and said he hoped to work with a
law firm in the Triangle area.
But 1974 Student Body President Ford
Runge said that having been student body
president looks less and less significant on
a resume as time passes. He added that
perhaps the only aspect valuable to him
now was the management opportunity
the office gave him.
Runge was an assistant political science
professor at UNC until he left last year to
work in Washington at the State Depart
ment. He is now as assistant professor in
the department of agriculture and applied
economics at the University of Min
nesota. Jim Phillips, 1978 student body presi
dent, said being student body president
brought more advantages than an im
pressive addition to a resume.
"It broadened the number of people I
knew at Carolina," Phillips said. "Plus,
it gave me a sense of what really goes on
and how to deal with people in the real
After graduation, Phillips worked in
the governor's office in Raleigh for two

But Kelly said that the office stays the
same because it provides the same options
but the individuals change.
"Different times call for different types

CAMP LEJEUNE Fresh Marine troops with morale said
to be at a "fever-pitch high" boarded helicopters Sunday and
left Camp Lejeune for Lebanon, where they will replace the
hundreds of Marines killed and wounded in a terrorist bombing.
Shortly after Maj. Gen. Al Gray ordered the Marines to leave
Camp Lejeune, which is the home base for the Marines killed in
Lebanon, troops could be, seen climbing aboard large Huey heli
copters and leaving the airfield in shifts, beginning at 3 p,m.
Gray, commander of. the 2nd Marine Division, said at a 2:45
p.m. news conference that the troops would bring the 24th
Marine amphibious unit back up to strength after 135 Marines
were killed early Sunday by a suicide bomber.
He declined to give the numbers of troops or aircraft, saying
the information could jeopardize the Marines already in
Gray termed the attack "a godless type of thing and we're a
force that knows our God.
"If we were barbaric, we could defend against this sort of
thing, but we're not."
Gray said throughout history such attacks have been pre
vented by lining up "five, 10 or 20 people and shooting them."

BEIRUT, Lebanon At least 146 U.S.
Marines and Navy men were killed and
scores were wounded early Sunday when a
suicide bomber crashed a pickup truck
packed with explosives into the lobby of
an airport building where the Americans

group claimed responsibility for the blast
that leveled the four-story building.
