Lines, lines, lines... That’s what most students think about when registration is
mentioned on our campus. It is a tremendous hassle having to wait in lines and
secure numbers in order to register. It becomes frustrating when a student
receives a number that entitles one privileges to register the next day or maybe
even two or three days later.
At present, the university is attempting to adopt a new procedure. Through this
procedure, pre-registration will be dropped altogether. Students will see academic
advisors and register after the holidays.
Whether this will improve registration at WSSU is questionable. The methods
of registering are still the same. Therefore, students are likely to encounter many
of the same problems. Students can be of assistance by following procedures as
directed to make the process less complicated. However, our university has taken
a step in trying to improve registration and hopefully in time it will not be a major
problem for us.
Shortly after our University Drama Guild’s presentation of “Porgy,” some of
our students expressed a concern that deeply bothered them... The issue at hand
is the lack of respect often shown on our campus. Special concern is geared to the
rudeness often shown at presentations given in our auditorium or elsewhere on
Many may feel it is “cool” or “cute” to show disrespect by using wisecracks
and loud laughing at university affairs at inappropriate times. However, it actual
ly makes campus affairs less enjoyable for many others.
This, though it does not speak to all of us, is a negative reflection on us, not on
ly to the university family but the community as well. Not only does this type of
behavior reflect on us as a university, but on you as individuals. Each of us
should be capable of being concerned about others and give each other support
Remember, if we don’t care about ourselves no one else will.

Argus, the article entitled “Inadequate
Heat Poses Problem” incorrectly
stated that the heating problem this
year occurred when one of the boilers
failed costing the university thousands
of dollars. The article also stated that
the heating system had been converted
The article should have stated that
the boilers failed last year costing the
university $30,000 to repair and that
the heating system had been converted
to natural gas.
