Registration procedures face change
By D.A. LENTZ
The registration process has
been a major concern of the Stu
dent Government Association
(SGA) for some time.
Many students have com
plained that the current registra
tion process is too slow and in
convenient, and SGA has been
attempting to work with the
Registrar’s Office and the Busi
ness Office to improve the regis
tration system. SGA invited Cliff
Sullivan to speak before the Sen
ate on Oct. 16.
The Registrar’s Office is
working on a new system to re
place the current registration
process. With the new system,
preregistration will be replaced
with early registration. Return
ing students may register during
early registration and will not
have to go through normal regis
Students who complete early
registration will be informed of
how much money they owe the
Business Office. If they do not
pay on time, then their schedules
will be deleted and they will
have to complete normal regis
Returning students who do
not complete early registration or
STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN A "DATING GAME" DURING HOMECOMING WEEK
Week spotlights alcohol abuse
N.C. Wesleyan students par
ticipated in the prevention of al
cohol abuse by promoting “Al
cohol Awareness Week” on
campus during Oct. 15-21.
The week began on Sunday,
Oct. 15, with Dr. Carleton
McKita’s chapel service entitled
“Testing the spirits.” On Mon
day, Doc’s Happy Hour served
mocktails to over 125 students.
Speaker Jerry Niece pre
sented “Alcohol and You” to
over 75 students in the Student
Activities Center on Tuesday.
This session focused on the ef
fects of alcohol on the family and
the workplace. Later that night.
Charles Keel, a representative of
Carolina distributors, presented
“Your Alcohol IQ”, a videotape
packed with information.
Wednesday, Oct. 18, featured
two events. The Booze Bowl was
held in the cafeteria during
lunch. Students, faculty and staff
competed to answer two out of
three alcohol information ques
tions. Hardee’s sandwich cou
pons, donated by Fast Food Mer
chandisers, were given to all
A drawing for a N.C.
Wesleyan sweatshirt was held
from a pool of the 51 partici
pants. Keith Bauer was the win
ner. To finish off the week of
events, Laura Andreas of Holly
Hill Hospital presented an alco
hol awareness program in Nash
and Edgecombe halls.
These activities coincided
with similar student efforts na
tionwide during National Colle
giate Alcohol awareness week.
These events stressed education
I and the individual’s ultimate re
sponsibility in making well-in
formed, responsible decisions.
Now in its sixth year, the na
tional campaign is sponsored by
the Inter-Association Task Force
on Alcohol and Other Substance
who do not pay their bills on time
will have to go through normal
registration with the new stu
dents. Normal registration will
end in the Business Office,
where students will pick up their
completed class schedules.
There will be drop/add ses
sions for all students.
Some of the Senate members
expressed concern over the num
ber of classes that are closed or
canceled. Classes are closed
when the maximum number of
students register for the course
and no more students can be
admitted. Classes are cancelled

available or because loo few stu
dents register for the course.
The Registrar’s Office tries to
notify students of a closing or
