Students Speak Out...
By Marian Anderson
On college campuses, a majority of
the students have strong feelings about
varying issues and topics of interest, of
which they sometimes never get a
chance to express.
This situation exists here at WSSU.
Many students discuss campus issues
amongst each other and never have the
opportunity to be heard.
Therefore, The News Argus staff is
now featuring a section entitled
STUDENTS SPEAK OUT which will
appear in each future edition of The
News Argus. Hopefully, it will en
courage students to write in and ex
press their opinions on varying topics
without any hesitation.
In getting this section underway, this
month, five students were picked ran
domly to contribute ideas to the paper.
Shelia Ettson, a junior art major from
Durham, N.C., speaks out on the topic
of coed visitation: “Coed visitation of
ficially started Tuesday, March 30.
Now that we have it, 1 wonder how
long it’s going to last! I feel that the
rules which we are to use as guidelines
were made for kids in junior high.
Such things as visiting from 6 p.m. un
til 9:55 p.m. and having to leave the
door open exactly six inches are stupid!
But at least we are getting a little
/reerfow-although restricted. 1 assume
we’ll have to take one step at a time.
Coed visitation is a privilege and 1
hope that no one abuses it. If anyone
has any complaints about the rules 1
feel that he/she should take them to
the SGA. (Believe it or not that’s what
they are there for). I’m taking my com
plaints to their office as soon as possi
ble. I can’t say how much my opinion
is worth but I feel that if everyone were
to voice their opinions then maybe we
could get some changes made around
Michael Brown, a WSSU musician,
focuses his views on registration:
“Registration is very unorganized. 1
feel that it needs to be handled more
promptly and maybe begin in the sum
mer. Registration has become a pro
blem here at Winston-Salem State and
if the faculty and staff members would
take considerate attitudes towards the
matter, it may be cleared up. Many of
the faculty and staff give incorrect in
formation to students during registra
tion just to get rid of them. Things of
this nature tend to discourage and in
timidate students. Action needs to be
taken against this problems so that
registration can become less of a
Doreen Hall, a senior business ad
ministration major shares views on
mid-term reports: “1 have not yet
understood the significance of the
sending home of mid-term slips to
parents. If mid-term slips must be sent
to our parents then why not send them
slips to let them know that we are also
making grades other than D’s or F’s? I
feel that the student should be the only
Travelers on a budget

Thanks to a new “meet
or beat” policy, reports
Trailways’ Vice President
Robert Buschner, travelers
can get from Boston to
Jacksonville and back for
only $118 by bus, a round-
trip savings of $172.
That big bus, it seems,
can be a big help in saving
one who receives a mid-term report;
after all our parents aren’t taking our
classes. Our parents may be paying for
the classes, but if a student does not
want to do better he/she will not—
regardless of what the parent says.”
Kimberly Sherrill says: “Although
there are many things that we as
students would like to change here at
WSSU, 1 do not regret coming here. 1
only wish that the student body would
unite as one and therefore, keep our in
stitution from becoming a predomi
nantly white school (The University of
North Carolina at Winston-Salem).”
Eric Davis, an English major and
Charlotte native, speaks on the 1981-83
WSSU Catalog: “At this point in time,
Winston-Salem State University is be
ing carried through a series of transi
tions. The changes that have caught my
attention are the physical make-up of
the university, the effects of the con
sent decree and the positive move to in
crease enrollment...all being progresive
moves toward the betterment of our in
But I must say as we embark on this
climb up the ladder, let us not forget
who we are and from where we have
come. Let us not forget the total com
petency of instructors that will leave us
in spite of the many students they fruit
fully cultivated. Also, let us not depict
a falseness through brochures and
catalogs, which may be used to attract
new students under what may be con
sidered misleading first glance effects.
(I am referring to the 1981-83 WSSU
Handbook). So in conclusion, I merely
leave this note—As we move on up with
the Joneses, let’s keep in mind our
name and gain our prestige with true
