NEW VISITATION IN EFFECT
by Greg Carpenter
New visitation hours officially went into
effect last weekend in each residence hall.
As reported in the last issue of The Pilot,
the Student Senate passed a proposal for ex
tended visitation hours.
After the proposal was passed, it was sent
to the dean of student development's office,
where Be. Jerome Scott, the dean, approved
At the last GWU Board of Trustees meet
ing, Scott was given the authority by the trust
ees to pass extended weekend visitation privi
The proposal for 7 day visitation origi
nally proposed by Student Senate was not
Friday 3:00 p.m. -12:00 a.m.
Saturday 12:00 p.m. -12:00 a.m.
Sunday 1:00 p.m.- 10:00 p.m.
looked upon favorably by the trustees accord
ing to Kevin Cloer, student government presi
dent in his address to the Student Senate in a
recent senate meeting.
Scott actually approved more visitation
than what was asked for. In the proposal by the
senate, Saturday visitation during a home foot
ball game was shortened to 1 to 10 p.m.
Now, Saturday visitation during home
football games is 12 p.m. to 12 a.m., the same
as any other Saturday.
One group of students who stand to loose
in this situation are resident advisors (RA’s).
Currently, RA's do not patrol on week
ends as they did last year. Each RA on duty in
the hall is required to make rounds.
With the new visitation, RA's will have to
patrol during the new visitation hours.

Five GWU students get together and sing for Him
by Kevin Walter
Surely by now just about everyone on
campus has at one time or another heard the
group ‘Together for Him” sing.
The group is made up of five guys, John
Cooper, Bernard Ragins, Kris Huffman, Jake
Roper, and Jerel Olson.
They got together one day, sort of by
accident. Jerel said he was hanging out at the
freshman luoau when he and John got together
and ended up in Jerel's room singing.
One by one the other guys showed up,
and the next thing you know the group was
Right now the group has been performing
“We liked the sound, it appealed to us.”,
They are planning on some day adding on
some instrumentation to their songs. They feel
They have even dreamed of
a day that Together for Him
won't just be a singing group
but a ministry with preaching,
community work, and youth

The group is planning on doing some
youth rallies up until Christmas, or until they
cannot do anything more. Christmas is when
John might leave to pursue a career singing
with Warner Brothers. He sang for the com
pany at the request of David Mullins who
recently performed here.
The guys feel it would be ideal to find a
label for the whole group, but they have all
discussed the subject and there is no bad blood
between them. They aren’t singing for them
selves, they are singing for God. They feel
God called them to sing together to minister
for Him, not for themselves. So that is why
there are no problems; everyone is supportive
of the others.
They have even dreamed of the day that
“Together for Him” won’t just be a singing
group , but a ministry, with preaching, com
munity work, and youth rallies. The youth are
their main focus right now.
After all, like Jerel says, "What do youth
have the strongest intrest in? Music."
So that is one of the best ways to minister
There is one thing most of you are won
dering. Why do they practice in the stairwell?
They feel it is the best place acoustically for
singing. It gives them the sound most likely to
