Letter To The
When we leave Winston-^lem State
University, we need to be well-rounded in
dividuals. By using a few of your chosen
electives to see what the Social Science
Department has to offer, you will be sur
prised at how some of these courses can
help us as individuals to understand the
political, economic, and social systems of
the world we are about to enter.
The courses that I would like to em
phasize are Foreign Economic Policies,
Public Administration, and Politics of South
Africa. All these courses definitely have
some significance to each of us as in
dividuals living in this complex and chang
ing society. Below is a brief description of
the courses mentioned.
Brief Description of Courses:
I. F oreign Economic Policies - helps us to
understand the political and economic
policies that govern and affect our country’s
relations with those of other countries.
II. Public Administration - teach^us how
we as individuals can lead or be led by those
III. Politics of South Africa - helps us to
understand the plight of the blacks in South
Africa and those who oppress them. It
allows us as individuals to learn what the
apartheid system is and how the system af
fects the blacks of South Africa.
Initially, I decided to take a Social
Science course because I was interested,
but later I took three more courses under
the Social Science Department because I
was stimulated and because I cared. Make
Political science courses a part of your
Therefore, Social Science courses are not
just for those who major in Social Science;
these courses are also for those of us who
dare to take the first step towards
understanding, learning, and being a part of
the system which affects each and everyone
of our lives everyday. Try a Social Science
course, it’s a smart move!

Scholar and Army
By Carol L. Drewery
A senior, accounting major, Bichson
Stevenson was recently honored in
Minorities and Women in Business for her
academic achievements and her Army
“Women Who Make A Difference” the ar
ticle in which Stevenson was featured
praises her as one of the top accounting ma
jors and Army ROTC cadets in the country.
The article also spoke of her academic
leadership and military leadership
Stevenson has received three Military
Academic Excellence Awards, the
distinguished Military Student Award and
the Reserve Officers’ Award.
Stevenson contends that none of her
academic or military achievements have
altered her line of thinking. Instead, she
says the article has motivated her to be suc
cessful in all her endeavors.
Stevenson’s future career plans definitely
include a military life as she will become a
part of the Military Intelligence Commis
sion team. “If the Army cannot offer me
what 1 am looking for I will seek a career in
the accounting field.”
Stevenson’s family has become her
source of encouragement. According to
Stevenson, “Everyone needs something
positive to back them up in this world and
for me it’s my family.”
Stevenson has devoted much of her time
to her studies and her military training, but
says, “This summer, it’s time to relax a bit
and give some time back to myself.”
“For me education is the key to all of the
finer things in life whether they are the
material goals or spiritual goals we seek,”
commented Stevenson on the philosophy
that keeps her going.
Bichson Stevenson is definitely one of
WSSU’s finest who will make a difference in
our future world.
