she said. "We choose 20 freshmen to

short hours to learn your sun spots from your satellites before the

On the other hand, Vivarin gives you the definite advantage. It helps

seminars that focus on skills needed
to be a good leader, Wolf said. The
fellows also spend time evaluating
their own and others leadership,
Once accepted to the program,
freshmen spend their spring semester
analyzing their leadership style and
how they work with others. The
sophomore year includes a three
credit seminar which focuses on
theories and philosophies of leader
ship, Wolf said.
The junior year includes a retreat
which focuses on values and how
these values impact a leader's work.
The senior year is spent discussing
transition and change, specifically the
transition to the workplace, she said.
The program also requires the
larger scale," he" said. "We decided
to take something already in progress
and tied the two together."
Because students will be raising
money for charity, the program will
give the community a positive view
of UNC students, he said.
The program is not designed to
affect voter turnout, Haydock said,
but will serve as an extra reminder
to students who are familiar with the
issues. "This will do a whole lot of
good with no harm."
Haydock said he hopes the pub
licity for the program will help to
bring out issues and "make the
election a bigger deal." .
Committee members have not
taken any pledges yet, but have met
with representatives from area busi
nesses to get an idea of how much
support there is, he said.
Senior Class President Steve
Tepper said he anticipates the pro
gram should raise a significant
amount of money for the foundation,
and that the program could be aa
annual charity fund-raiser.
"This is a creative way to build up
excitement around election time and
a great way to serve charity," he said.

are expected to do.
"In the last 10 years, every one of
