Expenses reduce value
Increased student aid available
More student financial aid funds will
be available this year, but the increasing
cost-of-living and rising University
expenses mean not all students needs
will be met.
"This is the first time in the 10 years I
have been here that the Student Aid
Office has not been able to meet the
needs of our students," Student Aid
Director William Geer said last week.
Despite increased federal
appropriations, a new state allocation
for minority recruitment and an
anonymous donation of $100,000,
Student Aid's revenues are expected to
fall about $700,000 short of demand.
This, said Geer, will mean a cutback of
10 to 20 per cent in aid for certain
While those who filed for assistance
by the March 1975 deadline will receive
the full amount their financial statement
showed was needed, those applying by
June 1 will receive only 90 per cent of
their request, and those applying during
the summer, 80 per cent, Geer said.
An exception will be made for
students who undergo financial crises
before school begins, he added.
According to Aid Office estimates,
total costs for an in-state student
attending UNC for one year on a tight
budget have risen to $2,645 $250
higher than last year. For an out-of-
state student, costs have increased to
$4,125 $400 higher than in 1974-75.
Besides the $100 a year out-of-state
tuition hike and rising living expenses,
students will be paying $15 more this
year for mandatory infirmary fees and
The Office of Student Aid will distribute funds
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the 3rd floor of Pettigrcw
Hall on the following schedule:
Last names beginning A through F
Last names beginning G through L - Friday
Last names beginning M through R -Tuesday.
Last names beginning S through Z
Wednesday. Sept. 3
All students must bring their Official
Registration Form to receive their checks. Anyone
not able to meet this schedule may pick up their
money on Thursday. Sept. 4.
The financial aid office is also holding the
following information meetings during

approximately $60 more for dormitory
"There's always a cliche that your
federal funds were cut," Geer said,
discussing the aid shortfall. "But that's
not true here... the principal reason is
the rise in room rent and non-University
Federal appropriation, which cover
work-study, National Direct Student
Loans and Supplementary Education
Opportunity Grants, have risen from
$1.99 million last year to $2.15 million
Geer also said he expects UNC
students to receive more than $ 1 million
from the federal Basic Educational
Opportunity Grant fund, a program
begun two years ago that supplies funds
directly to students who qualify as
In addition, the state appropriated
$72,000 this year for the recruitment of
minority students to help fulfill the
commitment of the university system's
desegregation plan to increase minority
,Local sources have also been
generous in giving student aid.
Recently, an anonymous donor gave
$100,000 to the University for assistance
to disadvantaged students.
The University contributes its share
of financial aid mainly through Student
Stores profits. Geer said last year the
stores generated approximately
$200,000 for undergraduate aid, $50,000
for graduate fellowships and $25,000 for

ECOS seeks growth

assistantships, lab appointments,
fellowships and scholarships awarded
by various departments and
foundations on the basis of
Meanwhile, more UNC students than
ever before are working their way
through school, Geer said, including
1,000 students on the federal work
study assistance program and more than
9,000 working at various jobs in town.
While this year's figures are still
unavailable, the Aid Office last year
allocated $6,820,752 to 4,056 students
including over 1,050 graduate students.
"Graduate and professional students
are very important," Geer said. "They
are feeling the costs-of-living increases
more seriously than most other
To many students, ECOS "simply
represents a truck which periodically collects
newspapers for recycling from the large
green boxes around the campus. However,
recycling is only one of the organization's
many activities and services.
ECOS, Inc., a non-profit organization
centered in Chapel Hill, is dedicated to
studying and publicizing environmental
problems, according to its newsletter.
The name was chosen because of its
similarity to the Greek work "oikos".
meaning household, and to words relating to
the environment such as ecology and
Aside from the recycling activities, the
group has also lobbied against nuclear
power plant development and certain dam
and highway projects while supporting mass
transportation and conservation. These
activities have led to numerous studies,
publications and even lawsuits.
ECOS was organized in Chapel Hill six
years ago and has since expanded to a
statewide organization with five chapters
and approximately 300 members. The
newest chapter is now being organized at St.
Andrews College in Laurinburg.
The state headquarters of ECOS is located
in a cluttered office on Henderson Street
above Hector's restaurant.
ECOS treasurer Larry Tuttle said that in
the coming year the group plans lo
concentrate its activ ities in the fields of
nuclear power and transportation problems,
as well as its recycling projects.
Tuttle said he hopes ECOS will publish a
study of mass transportation later this fall.
"We don't feel the state of North Carolina
should continue to build highways like it is."
Instead, Tuttle said he would like to see
the state re-evaluate its plans and place
greater emphasis on mass transportation.
"Mass transportation would serve more
people with less damage to the
environment." said funic.
Tuttle also said ECOS plans to continue
its opposition to the Carolina Power and

built near Raleigh. The group has taken legal
action to intervene and halt construction ot
Despite its growth. ECOS continues to
face financial problems. The organization is
funded by membership which cost from S5 to
SI 0 each, outside contributions and the sale
of its booklet on sex education and birth
control entitled Elephants and
Butterflies . . . and Contraceptives.
Tuttle said the current financial state of
ECOS is "not grim but not rosy either."
Testing center gives career guidance
to those who need direction
Like the traveler who can't find his way, a student
sometimes need a little direction. And that's exactly what the
UNC Career Guidance Center is offering.
"I think that we are useful for people who know where they
are going but not how to get there, and for people who don't
know where they are going and need help in finding a
direction," June Alcott, a counselor at the Career Guidance
and Testing Center, said last week.
The Guidance and Testing Center, staffed by professional
counselors, offers information and testing to help students
with individual academic and career problems.
Students can make appointments to talk with these
counselors by calling 933-2175 or stopping by the center in
In addition to counseling, the Guidance and Testing Center
maintains an educational and occupational library. The
library contains information on employment outlooks,
graduate schools, medical and law schools, particular needs of
women and minority groups and other information about
Alcott added that the center is one of the best places on
campus to find career information for women.
The center also provides testing to help students determine
where their skills lie. These tests are free to UNC students.
The Guidance and Testing Center keeps a testing calendar,
showing when applications are due for tests such as the Law
School Aptitude test and when such exams are scheduled.
Another test lisf shows during which year in college these
career tests should be taken.
Alcott reminds all students planning to take the Medical
College Admissions Test (MCAT) that the postmark deadline
for registration for the fall exam is August 29 and that the
registration must include a photograph of the applicant.
The Guidance and Testing Center is open Monday through
Friday 8 to 5.
