Students meet resistance to cafeteria inquiry
by Telesa Wilson
A group of students got more than they
bargained for while shooting video for a class
project on the relationship between the food
committee and the cafeteria last semester.
According to Markell Lynch, a student
involved with the project, at least two Gardner-
Webb administrators and the regional man
ager of ServiceMaster, the food service G-W
is under contract with, were consulted before
they were allowed to speak with the cafeteria
manager, John Simpson.
The students had planned on interview
ing Simpson and Lynch claimed she set up an
interview with him through a cafeteria worker
over the phone.

For many of you on campus, the term
RHA is alien. I am here to rectify that. My
name is Ginger Pate, and I am the National
Communications Coordinator for RHA.
RHA stands for Residence Hall Associa
tion. Every person living on campus is an
instant member. RHA is here to promote
healthy, fun, educational, social, and spiritual
living in the residence halls. RHA consists of
a 9 member executive council, a representa
tive council made up of residence hall vice
presidents, the hall councils, and you!
Let me introduce you to the executive
council. The president is Kim Corns, NCC,
Ginger Pate; NCCIT, Randi DePersig; pro
gram director, Melissa Sebastion; co-pro
gramming director, Corby Haneline; publicity
director, James Julian; director of fund-rais
ing, Andrew Hopper; treasurer, Paula Jacobsen;
advisor, Darin Morrow.
We have an RHA office in the bottom of
Decker Residence Hall. The hours are posted
around campus. Come see us, we would be
glad to hear from you and what you'd like to
see on campus.
RHA's main goal is programming. Some
of the major programs RHA has produced are
the Womanless Beauty Contest where the
GWU guys get to show the girls up by "being
women" for an evening and the week long Hall
Olympics where the brother and sister halls
pair up and battle up against each other to

one of the students began shooting footage of
Lynch says, “Simpson walked in when
we were shooting and went ballistic.”
She says that Simpson told them to stop
the camera; they complied and asked him for
an interview at a later date because Simpson

Hall Association, enjoys a hearty meal.
determine who is the best on campus.
New to RHA, but not new to campus, was
the recently produced Powder Puff and Iron
Man Football Tournaments. Both were suc
cessful and both were learning experiences.
There are a lot of new plans in the works
for spring. The month of March is going to be
declared SEX EDUCATION month.
Information will be posted around cam
pus about abstinence and the pros and cons of
birth control methods. Numerous activities
are planned to give you all sides of the story.
Something the RHA is excited about
right now are T-shirts. We are selling them for
$11 and they are awesome. If you are inter
ested, contact an RHA member.
RHA is here to make your transition into
school a little easier. We want to have pro
grams that allow you to interact with, and
work with different types of people.
We are interested in hearing what you
would like to see on campus. All the board
members are new, and we want your input.

‘There was apparently some misunder
standing, and I am sorry for that,” Simpson
Donnie Clary, vice president for business
and finance, asked for the kitchen footage
which the students had taken.
Lynch relates what was on the tape, “There
was footage of a woman working with food,
takes of her hat and sets it on a covered (with
plastic wrap) tray of food.”
‘There was also an open waste container
which had lemons, old eggs, etc. There were
three people not wearing hats (visors or hair
nets are required) or hair nets.”
The students, after consulting with Ted
Vaughan, the television class instructor, de
cided not to use the footage in their final

Gardner-Webb students have noticed the
arrival of new international students, from
Brazil, on campus.
These students are part of Phil Young's
English School. They have come directly from
Brazil to go through an intensive English course
that lasts three weeks.
Currently, there are 72 students, ranging
in age from 12 to 40. The Brazilians are here
for three weeks at a time and on January 24, the
second group arrived at Gardner-Webb.
Phil Young's objective is to teach his
students enough English so that they may be
able to get a score of 550 on the Test of English
as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
TOEFL is a test most international stu
dents take to test their proficiency in English.
Most schools require TOEFL for admission

Phil Young is an American who has lived
in Brazil for several years and has started
EngHsh language schools in Brazil.

Andrews in the summer of 1993 and brought
approximately 150 students with him from
The Phil Young English School is not
affiliated with any GWU program however,
