Academic Dishonesty: A Sign Of The Times?

Bus Service Up; Undemse By Students Still A Problem By TRICIA ANN POPULAR 8taff Reporter One weekend at HampdenSydney College, a Longwood student was partying with her friends and having a good time. As the evening went by. it got late and she soon wanted to head back to campus. There was only one problem. She could not find her friends or her car. and she was Incredibly Intoxicated. She had no way of getting back to campus until she saw the Farmvllle Bus. Needless to say this student got home safely and worried about her car and friends the next day. But as responsible students and responsible drinkers ask yourselves one question: What would have happened If this student did find her car? Michael Socha was a student at Longwood College and Is the backbone behind the bus system. He majored In social work and is a member of Sigma Phi Epsllon Fraternity. He Is from New Jersey and as a student he had no access to an automobile. He 1* familiar with the Longwood and Hampden-Sydney lifestyles, and in order to make them more enjoyable he helped start the bus system for the students. Socha mentioned his college experiences of playing golf and rugby, and his realization that students without cars would not like walking to the golf course or rugby field like he did, encouraged him to create the Farmville Area Bus. The bus system began oper atlng In August of 1990. Socha started with 18 drivers, although they were not the most profes slonal. The system changed quickly and now the drivers go through a seminar and hands on training. The drivers combined have a total of over 8.000 accident free driving hours. Socha knows now that he has the most qualified drivers ever. In 1990. the bus transported 32.000+ people and In 1991. the buses have transported a total of 40.000+. a significant Increase. Farmvllle Area Bus has been cited by the Secretary of Transportation as having one of the best schedules and being the simplest to use. Socha emphasizes that the service is most Important and he wants to be as accommodating as possible. There seems to be a few questions, though. Faculty from Longwood once believed that the bus "gave the ride out (to H-SC) but there was no way back." Though at one time this was true. It is no longer correct. Socha states that most students need be only concerned about the Red line. The Red line runs between Longwood and Hampden-Sydney. Socha

stresses the regularity of the system, and notes that the only reason for any type of delay or change of route Is due to construction or traffic. Longwood College budgets the bus system $45,000 and Hampden-Sydney budgets $17,000 based on the student population at each campus. Socha wants students to take advantage of The Farmvllle Bus. He states that other colleges such as VA Tech. UVA. NOVA, and W&M. use the local bus system as a mode of transportation. These bus systems work Into the students' everyday schedule. He feels the bus is not put to good use because students are unfamiliar with the schedule. He gives one bit of advice. "DONT READ THE MAP." This Is what confuses students more. Be familiar with the times and the scheduled stops on the small red cards. Socha read the a recent Issue of The Rotunda and he found one thing very disturbing. A student complained about harassment from town people when walking home from DTs or Perlnl's. The student wrote about safety on campus, and mentioned the need for escort services and more police. Socha asks one question. "Why don't these girls get on the bus?" He states that he purposely changed the route so now the bus passes both of these locations. There was an incident where a bus broke down In front of The Dell. The Bus driver radioed the police for assistance. The students on the bus were intoxicated. They panicked and fled before the police arrived. Socha wants to make clear that when you are on The Bus. no one will "mess with you." You are not going to get In trouble. The Bus Is there to get you home safely. When these students Jumped off the bus and walked home, they ran a big risk to their life. Finally. Socha wants to let the students know of the extra occasions where the bus can be useful. The bus takes students to Wedgewood. the Creamery, and to the cabin. He knows that there Is alcohol and limited parking for sporting events, so why not take advantage of the utilities. Socha says that he will change the route to best meet the needs of the students. He will also arrange personal transportation for a direct ride If you c all. The Bus will take sororities out to Hampden-Sydney to tallgate at football games. He knows there are bands after the games, so he gives the option of taking the Red line back or arranging (Continued on page 3J

By KAREN NEU8TADT (CPS) - Fierce competition for Jobs and higher grades and poor leadership models have created a fertile climate for cheating, say college and university officials who are grappling with new ways to deal with an old problem. Worried educators say some of today's college students, exposed to a painful recession in a get-rlch-qulck society and numbed by scandals such as congressional check-bouncing, are asking themselves: What's wrong with cheating? "One of the reasons that (cheating Is) increasing is the perception that the students' future Job opportunities are closely linked to how well they perform In terms of grades." said Robert Dorff, faculty senate chairmen at North Carolina State University. "When pressure mounts, some feel that pressure and respond by cheating," he said, adding that today's faculty members are being urged to be more creative with testing procedures to make cheating "less enticing." Not only Is academic dishonesty growing, but there Is more discussion about It than ever before. "Both of these forces are coming together and making It a more apparent problem," Dorff said. One New Jersey student doesn't see cheating as a problem. In fact, he's making a tidy profit off of the current GPA paranoia. Michael Moore, a Rutgers University Journalism student, recently raised eyebrows with his 86-page book, titled "Cheating 101: The Benefits and Fundamentals of Earning the Easy AA." that details methods of cheating. Including hiding notes In the holes of torn Jeans and using foot signals to convey answers on multiple choice questions. Moore reported. In an article in "Campus Crime" (January 1992). that he has sold 1.750 copies of his book ($6 each) to students at Rutgers, the University of Maryland and Ohio State

University. Some professors say Moore's blatant effort to promote deceit has brought cheating, often an unspoken, seldom-addressed problem. Into the light. Educators often refuse to admit the amount of cheating that may be going on In their classes. said one source, and may not want to know the hard facts. In 1987 and 1988. the American Council on Education. In conjunction with the University of California at Los Angeles asked students about their cheating habits In a comprehensive survey. The American Freshman." About 37 percent of the students surveyed In the fall of 1988 said they had cheated on a test In high school, an Increase from about 30 percent the year before. About 57 percent said they had copied another student's work, while about 52 percent admitted doing so the year before. That was the last year any reference to cheating was Included In the survey. "We don't plan on bringing them up (the question) again." said Ellen Rlggs, a researcher with the Higher Education Research Center at UCLA. The general reaction from the schools were not the most positive. Some advised students not to answer the questions." Michael Moffatt, associate professor of anthropology at Rutgers University, said his intensive study of cheating left him shocked and "In a funk?" He said he received only a lukewarm response from his colleagues. "I found that 33 percent (of students) had been Involved In considerable cheating. That means cheating In three to 25 courses with an average of eight courses, and 22 percent had never cheated In college. The "Inbetweens" cheated once or twice." said Moffatt. Moffatt's Investigation Included 400 Rutgers students who turned In anonymous "selfreports" on subjects such as

sexuality and cheating. The results of the cheating question spurred him to write a 22-page report. "I received a great number of graphic papers that were In many ways more shocking than the sexual self-reports. It threw me Into a funk." he said. The student* future Job opportunities are closely linked to how well they perform In terms of grades... When pressure mounts, some feel that pressure and respond by cheating." Students confided to Moffatt that they cheated to get minimal grades to survive, to get revenge on a disliked professor, or because they were angry because others performed better academically without much effort. Moffatt said cheating often takes such an emotional and mental toll that It would be easier to study. "They are In terror of being caught." he said of cheaters. 'They will fight against the accusation." The professor said he has identified five commonly used cheating techniques from the "lookabout," where answers are borrowed from a neighbor, to "ripple cheating." which can consist of elaborate, premeditated schemes with many Involved. Cheat sheets are so common that Moffatt actually legalized them in his class. Students are allowed to bring In one 8-by-10 Inch of paper with as much written on It as the space can contain. "It encourages me to not ask stupid questions." he said. Cheating also takes other forms, such as plagiarism, paying someone to take a test or write a paper, or buying an already completed term paper. While many campuses wrestle with the problem of cheating, students at the University of Virginia are celebrating the 150th birthday of the nation's oldest student-run honor sys-

tem. For one week, beginning March 27. students take part in a four-day conference on honor and Integrity In the academic environment. The topic is dls cussed at luncheons, dinners, lectures and seminars. Founded In 1842. Virginia's honor system la simple: no lying, cheating or stealing. There Is only one punishment: students found guilty of an offense by Juries of their peers are dismissed from the university. While Virginia's drastic disciplinary measures may not wash on some campuses, many are tightening up their honor codes. In 1985. when officials at the University of Delaware surveyed the student body and discovered that 78 percent admitted to cheating they Immediately revamped their honor code. Now students caught cheating receive a grade of "XF" on their transcripts. Cheating cases are evaluated by a student board, which Is known to be tougher on fellow students because they see themselves as victims of cheating. The University of Maryland also gives students an "XF" grade which remains on the student transcript for a full year. After completing a non credit six-week course on academic Integrity, the students can petition to have the "X" removed. The spotlight has been on academic Integrity for the past several years. "Officials say students seem increasingly willing to do anything to get ahead." reports an article on academic dishonestly that appeared In the Chronicle of Higher Education (Jan. 17. 1990). "The students are frightened about the Job market. They're searching for the pre-wealth curriculum. The value of money Is more important to them than a code of honesty and a sense of responsibility." said Arthur Levlne, chairman of the Institute for Education management at Harvard University. In the same article.

Freshman Applications On Tl Budget Cuts & Tuition Hikes By DINA M. DAWBON Staff Reporter Recent media claims have maintained that state supported schools, during the next academic year, will be admitting considerably less freshmen due to financial problems. The stories assumed that with the Increase In Virginia's financial difficulties the amount of money granted to collegiate Institutions would be less In the 1992-1993 academic year than the amount granted during the 1991-1992 year. Larger state supported Institutions, such as Radford and Virginia Tech. may certainly be finding validity In such a statement. However. Longwood has found Itself In a different boat when compared to other Institutions within the state of Virginia. While it is true that some schools such as Virginia Tech have announced a cutback in the freshman class by 300 persons. Mr. Bob Chonko. Director of Admissions at Longwood. estimated next year's freshmen class to be "maybe 650 persons" compared to 636 freshman accepting In the fall of 1991. and 600 freshmen accepted in the fall of 1990.

It was estimated that close to 3.000 freshmen would apply to Longwood for admission next spring, and at this time the number of applicants submitted Is about eight percent ahead of the number submitted at exactly this time last year. The amount of applications submitted this year has taken the admission's house by surprise as the amount of students graduating from high schools this year was predicted to be the "smallest high school graduating class" that Virginia has seen In quite awhile, with only about 59.000 students. The increase In the number of applicants means that "standards are taken up." rats Ing the SAT score required for admission to Longwood as well as a student's grade point average. Mr. Chonko says that he credits the Increase of applications to the economy. With very few good Jobs available. Mr. Chonko stated that people are "ducking Into school and trying to buy time" and that Longwood may be popular because, despite the budget cuts, no cutbacks have been taken In any of the academic departments. Mr.

Chonko also stated that he felt the ability to handle budget cuts In such a way was a sure sign of a "stable Institution." However, with the new dollar figures proposed by the House and Senate Conference Committee It appears that Longwood will again have to deal with additional budget cuts. The commit tee proposed that Longwood be given $175,000 next year for the purchase of a main frame com puter system along with hard ware and software. $38,239 for fixing the humidity problem in the Wygal Building, and $75,000 to be used for building maintenance. The same committee also proposed several budget cuts, such as a reduction of $10,560 which will eliminate the state support for remedial education courses. According to Mr. Rick Hurley, vice president of Busl ness Affairs. Longwood will still continue to have classes. The state, however, will no longer continue to pay for them. An additional budget cut of $20,000 was proposed that would effect several centers at Longwood. such as the Small Business Development Center, but that would not go Into effect

until the 1993 1994 academic year and a third budget cut was proposed of $11.000 which pays some of the administrative help here at Longwood. While Longwood will suffer some budget cuts Mr. Hurley stated that we should be pleased with the amount proposed for the next academic year. If $175,000 had not been pro posed for a new computer sys tern Mr. Hurley stated that "It would have come out of our pockets and that's $175,000 the students don't have to pay." However, students can expect costs to rise to cover the budget cuts proposed as Mr. Hurley added that "It has a bad effect on students and their families."

Banned Skateboarding? By TODD BUCHANAN Picture this. You"re Just beginning high school and you don't know many people because you're new to the community. You mingle with different people In your classes and finally settle on a few Individuals that you have something In common with. Throughout high school, you and your new-found friends become Inseparable. What caused this friendship? A common hobby that you and they possessed. Now It's time to graduate and go off to college. Unfortunately, you and your friends all seem to go In different directions, and when you finally get to college, you find yourself back at the same point you were when you began high school — no friends because you didn't know anybody, and you didn't know what to do. One thing you did have then, and you still do now. Is that hobby — something you enjoy doing and that makes you happy to do by yourself. But you can't, say the cops. They tell you that what youVe been doing for a better part of your life-your hobby-Is Illegal In this particular area. What kind of bullshit Is this? Speaking of bad raps. Hammer's not the only one that falls Into this quaint little category. Skateboarders are quickly following. Modes of transportation have always been something that Americans have been trying to Improve for the longest time. What's more Is that Americans have recently ganged up on this health and fitness kick thing. What better way. then, to get from here to there than on your very own skateboard. It's a good workout arid it even has wheels, right! One small problem has been causing these fitness-seeking skateboarders to go into hiding in the town of Farmvtlle. as well as on the campus of Longwood College. That's right, skateboarding has been totalling outlawed everywhere around here! One cannot skate In the street, on the sidewalks, and for God's sake there's no skating In any parking lots, anywhere! Understanding that from the authorities' point of view, skateboarding can be an omen from hell, they have every right to take all necessary precautions. I

Letter To The Editor

Editor. The Rotunda: I feel that a commendation is mean, maybe a board may slip due. Before Spring Break on out from beneath the toes of a Thursday 12, a group here on fitness seeker and accidentally campus took what I see as a brave step. A step which dismember three or four pedestrians In the Immediate area — shouldn't have to have been but how often Is this going to taken but In this day and time happen? How many cases have with attitudes the way they are, you ever heard of something this they had to make this step. They did it and they deserve the tragic happening? Skateboarders may be able to find a place recognition. Unity, the group for in town that Is out of the way of gays, lesbians and blsexuals on the innocent pedestrian, and Longwood and Hampden-Sydney this would obviously lessen the Campuses, opened themselves up for questions and comments. chances of someone getting seriously Injured — but they're not This took nerve.

If the town of Farmville insists upon enforcing their ban on skateboarding, why not install a city-funded facility that Is strictly for skateboarding. It wouldn't have to be too large. Just a designated area to skate instead of tearing up this town's architectural masterpieces. NOT!!

sexual preference is different than mine. BIG DEAL! As long as they do not approach me sexually, I don't care what they do. It's their business and no one else's. There are probably a lot of people out there with nontradltlonal sexual preferences probably sitting right next to you In class. You never know. I Just don't see why a person's sexual preference should change one's opinion? Why Is it so Important to everyone else? Have the heterosexuals thought about the fact that gays and lesbians find heterosexual activities a bit disgusting? These groups tolerate other sexual overtones In movies, on T.V., and In magazine ads. They tolerate It. so why can we not tolerate their attitudes? We had civility week here at Longwood College not too long ago. but some people seemed to have missed the message. One caller asked how 'you all Justify your right to be gay?" Come on people! Do you Justify your right to be heterosexual dally? People with nontradltlonal sexual preference fight prejudice every day. That's actually what this is. prejudice. A word usually associated with race will now have to be applied to sexual preference. When will it stop? At the end of the Unity members ...comments the caller said. "Well, that's an awfully gay thing for you to say." Well. sir. that was a very Ignorant thing for you to say) I heard one caller suggest that Unity, as a group, should come out of the closet when that's the only place where they are safe from prejudice, violence, and hate? People Judge people enough by the color of their skin, the clothes they wear, the car they drive, or the fraternity or sorority they belong to. Why add another bump in the road? Being a member of the campus that is neither gay nor lesbian. I feel It Is time to put all



our fears and prejudices aside and realize that "those people" are exactly that, people. We need to stop using derogatory terms j and telling racial Jokes. "Those people" have feelings Just like any other person and those feelings can be trampled Just as easily. The question of the religious aspects also came up. I would like to ask that caller how many times they had participated In premarital sex? Is this not a sin from the very book you slapped In Unity's face? Think about it. you said they were sinners. NEED A MIRROR? Unity, once again. I commend you In your attempt to educate this campus in Its attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, and bisexual community. One day in my heart of hearts I would hope that ALL prejudices, not Just sexual prejudices, and backwoods attitudes would be gone and each and every one of us would be able to live our lives as humans, and not people with sexual labels. Once again. I commend Unity. To the readers, thanks for listening to me while I was perched upon my soap box. Now go live your life, not someone else's and for goodness sake. BE CrVILI P.S. This has nothing to do with Unity but with the new campus map known as "CAMPUS AT A GLANCE." To Its creators, were the music and art departments not given a visual representation because you didn't want to Insult us with a cheap Illustration or Is it because we're so unimportant to the front of this campus that we are trying to be forgotten? Granted, we may not bring statewide tides to this campus, but we are still a part of this campus, like it or not. AE. Reed. Ill

ROTC Visible Force On Campus By JULIET ATE Staff Reporter The ROTC Is a visible force on Longwood College's campus. Many of us see the men and women dressed In uniform or fatigues and wonder what ROTC is all about and why they choose to take this route through college. ROTC stands for Reserve Officers' Training Corps. It Is a program offered by the Army which gives college students the chance to graduate as an officer and then serve In either the National Guard, the U. S. Army Reserve, or the U. S. Army. ROTC or Military Science classes were first offered In 1819 at a civilian college campus In Vermont. This campus grew to become the American Literary. Sctentiflc and Military Academy. Later It evolved Into Norwich 'University. The ROTC students at Longwood recently attended a winter training session at this university. The list of military colleges grew and by the 1900s over 100 colleges gave instruction In military science. Today over 300 colleges and universities In the United States are hosts for *OTC programs. Extension renters and colleges with cross enrollment number In the thousands. Longwood is an extension center and Its host college is the University of Richmond. ROTC Is also offered on the high school level. More than 700 high schools have Junior ROTC programs. There are many advantages to being a part of the ROTC program. It provides leadership and management training as well as practical experience. In ROTC, a

student develops the qualities necessary for success In a career with the Army or In the civilian work force. The Army not only helps the student, but the students in ROTC help the Army. By having ROTC programs the Army Is provided with capable, college-educated officers. This helps the Army to keep up with an ever-changing society. There are two parts to a four year ROTC program. They are the Basic Course and the Advanced Course. The Basic Course Is taken during the freshman and sophomore years of college. In these two years a person learns the customs and traditions of the service. They also learn the different organizations In the service, military defense and history, and leadership development. The Advanced Course Is taken during the student's Junior and senior years. Topics covered In this course Include management, tactics, professionalism, and ethics. Leadership development Is covered in this course as well. Advanced Course students must attend Advanced Camp the summer between their Junior and senior years. This is a sixweek training session which gives them the chance to practice what they learned In the classroom and shows each person what Army life In the field Is like. All books, materials, and uniforms for both courses are furnished by the Army at no cost to the students. The ROTC provides scholarships for two, three, and four years. These scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis

Campus Police Take Steps To Ensure Safety By TRAVI8 GRIFFIN Staff Reporter Campus police are taking measures to ensure safety on the Longwood College campus. Campus crime was rampant last semester at Longwood. Although there have not been many Incidents this semester, campus police are taking the necessary precautions to ensure that Longwood students can feel safe to walk through the campus at night. One measure being taken Is the substantial amount of extra lights that are being Installed all over the Longwood campus. There have been two new lights Installed at the front of Wheeler and Cox. There Is one new light on the west side of Jarman. There Is a new light at the back of Blackwell Dining Hall. There Is a new light at the north end of Curry and the south end of Frazler. There Is a much needed light between Lancer Gym and the tennis courts and two new lights at the basketball courts next to Her. These new lights should help students feel safer to engage In nighttime sporting activities. There was also an extra light

Installed In Tabb Circle and at the back of Wygal. They are also going to put up new lighting at the south end of Wygal and the new resident halls next semester. Campus Police are confident that all of this new lighting will discourage any attacks or other forms of criminal activity. Another measure that campus police Is taking to ensure the students' safety Is cutting the shrubs, particularly those by the buildings. They feel that this will hinder anyone's ability to hide In the shrubs. They also want to have a two foot clearance from the ground on each of the shrubs. This way nobody will be able to hide without having their legs showing. Campus police have added a public service channel to the Longwood television station for the use of the students. Any student who has any Information that he or she would like to share with the general public Is free to consult campus police for the use of the channel. If any student has any questions about the new added safety measures, please feel free to contact campus police.

There is also a subsistence allowance of up to $1,000 for all cadets In the Advanced Course. The Advanced Camp Is also paid for by the Army. There are a variety of organizations which are available for cadets to Join. Among them are The Scabbard and Blade, which is the Advanced Course national honor fraternity and The Society of American Military Engineers, which promotes national engineering potential for defense. A variety of exchanges also occur between cadets and civic and military leaders. ROTC students also give their time to service activities and civic projects. Cadets in the Advanced Course are obligated to military service upon graduation. Students receiving scholarships must serve eight years in the military. They may divide these eight years by serving two to four years on active duty and the remainder In the Reserves or eight years In the Reserves followed by three to six months on active duty. Those cadets not receiving scholarships serve three years on active duty and five In the Reserves or they may be chosen to participate in Reserve Forces Duty. If selected, they will serve from three to six months on active duty and eight years In the Reserve Forces. Cadets get the opportunity to select a first, second, and third choice of the 22 branches of the Army. These selections Include Field Artillery. Military Intelligence. Infantry, and the Corps of Engineers. Most cadets are commissioned in one of their first three choices. These assignments allow the student to practice the knowledge they have gained In college.

WLCX Turns To Progressive/ Alternative Format By DEBRA E. MAYO Staff Reporter WLCX 90.1 FM has changed formats. With an expansion project In progress, the station's board members felt that It was time for a change. When the station upgrades In the fall of 1993. It will be operating with as much as 25,000 watts of power. At this time. WLCX broadcasts with a mere 10 watts of power. The upcoming upgrade was one of the main reasons for switching the station to a more standardized format. At a special meeting, the decision to change was made. Members of the radio board, and those members of the general assembly who attended, brainstormed about the format. The board members voted unanimously that a progressive/alternative format was the best possible choice. Those who participated In the meeting felt that because the students at Longwood are able to listen to commercial stations that offer country, top 40. classic rock and variety, progressive was the way to go. A progressive station can not be found on the dial In Farmvllle and WLCX wanted to offer the students a place to hear this type of music. The station stresses that the new progressive/alternative format Is not a permanent

change. This Is merely a testing period to be used In helping the station to obtain music from record companies and to give the station a name that can be recognized nationally. The format will be In place for at least the rest of the semester. Along with the change In music, you may notice that D.J.'s now have three hour time slots as opposed to the old two hour slots of earlier In the year. The station is broadcasting a full 21 hours a day. seven days a week. The progressive format Is In effect from 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Friday. From 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. and on weekends, the station has open formatting. What does this mean? Well, basically, this Is when listeners will hear nonprogresslve music. D.J. s are able to play whatever type of music they wish. Listeners can check out the radio schedule In the New Smoker for show days and times that suit their musical taste. The station urges listeners to call if they have requests or questions about the format change. The studio line number Is 395-2475. There is also a folder for your comments and suggestions located In the New Smoker next to the radio schedule. The station's new theme Is "WLCX Is the voice of Longwood moving out of the past and Into the future!"

Three Students On Spring Break Overcome By Carbon Monoxide Fumes WEST PALM BEACH. FU. (CPS) — Three college students on Spring Break remained in serious condition after being over come by carbon monoxide In their motel room. The carbon monoxide fumes apparently seeped from a nearby boiler into the room. The three students, all from Mas sachusetts. were discovered March 20 by a maid at the 200 room Holiday Inn-Airport. Rescue workers initially thought they were badly sun burned or had overdosed on drugs because their skin had turned a deep red. When a

police officer collapsed, rescue workers realized that the students' color was the result of carbon monoxide poisoning. All guests were evacuated from the motel, which will remain closed until authorities give the owners the go-ahead to reopen. Todd Glrouard. 21. of Chelmsford. Mass.. was in serious condition March 23 at St. Mary's Hospital in West Palm Beach. Klmberry Newton. 21. of Brockton. Mass.. and Klrsten Madden. 20. of Groton. Mass.. were in stable condition at Mercy Hospital In Miami.

Participating hi the maryuana eradication program are the Virginia State Police, the Virginia Farm Bureau, the Virginia National Guard, the U. S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). U. S. Forest Service, and other state and local law enforcement agencies. The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCD. coordinates the marijuana eradication program through its Special Investigations Division. SID also Is responsible for otherrejated Investigations.

By JEFF GOLDFARB CPS Washington Correspondent Editor's Note: This is one In a series oj profiles on the presidential candidates. Jocuslng on their views about higher education. WASHINGTON (CPS) — The core of Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton's higher education platform mandates that loans to college students be paid back as either a percentage of their income over time or through voluntary national public service. In addition. Clinton wants to establish a trust fund from which any American can borrow money for a college education — a program he labels a domestic GIBill. To fund the additional aid. Clinton proposes reallocating the budget and pledging more money to education. Today only 9 percent of the budget Is directed to Investing In our future — education and training. child health, environmental technologies, research and infrastructure. We need to double that share and pay for It by converting resources no longer needed for defense." Clinton said In a United States Student Association survey. As governor. Clinton Increased funding for higher education institutions in Arkansas by 77.7 percent since 1983. He established a college bond program in 1991 to help parents finance their children's higher education. Under the plan, parents and others can buy short or long-term taxexempt "college bonds. Since Clinton took office, the percent of Arkansas graduating high school students who attend In-state universities has risen from 38.2 percent to 51.3 percent. The Arkansas Challenge Scholarship Program. Implemented last year, allows any student who meets middle and lower-middle Income guidelines to have part of their tuition paid by the state at any college or university in the state.

"No student in good standing should be denied access to college, and grades should not be the basis for providing student aid. As President, I will introduce legislation to provide universal access to college for anyone who desires a college education." Clinton said in a Chronicle of Higher Education survey that he wants to simplify the student aid program "by eliminating banks from the process and making direct loans to students through their colleges and trade schools." According to the Chronicle survey, he also said he advocated affirmative action so that "every young American will have access to a college education, no matter what their background." Clinton said he agreed with resolutions pending In both the House and Senate that would ask President Bush to rescind Department of Defense policy prohibiting lesbians, gays and blsexuals from military service. Because many college students look to the military to help pay for college, the Issue has come to the forefront. Clinton said he supports more accurate national testing standards "that will help us measure the achievements of our students and tell us in what areas we need to make greater efforts." according to the Chronicle's questionnaire. "However, no student In good standing should be denied access to college, and grades should not be the basis for providing student aid. As President.
