Page 6, The News Argus, December, 1980 Editorials Registration Changes 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. Student Conduct 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 campus. 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 and respect. Remember, if we don’t care about ourselves no one else will. |pirit of (f hri|tma$ The Fact of The Matter... In the November issue of The News 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 to oil. 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.
