Seniors discuss SAPC's future
by Sii-yn Smith
Wednesday, November
19, the senior class held a meet
ing in Orange Main Lounge to
discuss various issues dealing
with St. Andrews, how it has
changed, and the direction it is
going. The problems dis
cussed at the meetings varied
from students not being allowed
to drink in the courtyards, to
problems with the campus po
lice, to questions about diver
sity in the faculty.
The purpose of the meet
ing was to discuss these prob
lems and to choose a group of
students to send as represen
tatives of the senior class to a
meeting that will be held with
Dean of Students Marcia
Nance, President Warren
Board, Vice President for Ad
ministration and Finance Bill
Gearhart, Dean of the college
Larry Schultz and Associate
Director of Admissions Shirley
Arnold on December 2. The
students selected were Maggie
Brewinski, Sammy McGee,
Emily Rogers, Brad MacArthur,
Donna Sammander and Heather
Hayden. Adam MacKenzie will
also attend as President of the
Student Government.
“I love this school,”
Sammy McGee said, and I want
to leave it with positive
The first big issue dis
cussed was the feeling that a
more restrictive campus police
staff, a more apathetic student
body and the rules about drink
ing in courtyards were taking
their toll on the feeling of com
“When I was a fresh
man, people hung out in the
courtyard of Orange all the
time. Now theyjust sit in their
rooms because they can’t
have beer outside,” one per
son said.
There was also concern
about campus police officers
walking into suites. Many
students consider the dorms
their homes and are offended
by what they see as intru
sions by the campus police.
The fact that there had
been alleged threats of reper
cussions for streakers at
GANZA was also discussed.
“I’m not going to streak.
It’s not something I’d want my
children to do. But it’s a St. An
drews tradition and it’s part of
what St. Andrews is,” another
senior said.
Some students expressed
concern over an issue of the wall
being painted over right before
Open House, removing a message
that had talked about oppression.
Some students viewed this as
Diversity was also a cen
tral issue in the conversation as
many of the students felt that the
campus was less diverse and that
the students stayed in their own
dorms and rarely interacted with
the students in other dorms.

Granville was full of hippies.

Phonathon volunteers reach out and touch alumni
by Suzyn Smith
If Pasta Pizza were to
have a Dorm Wars competition,
Pate Hall would win hands
No students live
there, but for the last
few months, the SAPC
admnistration has been
buying several pies a
week in an attempt to
get students to partici
pate in the phonathon.
The phonathon was a
great success. They
got pledges of about
$36,000, but Associate Vice
President for Institutional Ad
vancement Frank Byrne esti
mated that when all is said and
done, they will raise something
between $45,000-$50,000.
“1 think the phonathon
does a lot of good, because a
lot of the alumni enjoy the op
portunity to find out about cam
pus life directly from the stu
dents,” Byrne said.
Byrne reported that many
“Money is an important
goal of the phonathon, but
reconnection with alumni is
an even more important goal.
It’s all about connectivity.”

“Money is an important
goal of the phonathon, but
reconnection with alumni is an
even more important goal. It’s
all about connectivity,”
Byrne said.
The student volunteers
came from various organiza
tions on campus, from
Granville Residence Hall,
to the yearbook, to the
baseball team.
“Gary really got
his guys together. We
saw a lot of baseball
players,” Byrne said.
The alumni
weren’t the only ones
who enjoyed the phona-
tion,. Students had fun as
“The phonathon was a
great opportunity to interact
with alumni and help out the
school at the same time,” se
nior Maggie Brewinski said.
Byrne wants the stu
dents to remember that even
if they missed this year’s
phonathon, it’s likely they’ll get
another chance to participate, if
only from the other end.
“We ’ 11 be calling you some-
day. Be ready.”
