Sadly we have had to say our 
goodbyes to Becky Masters. 
None of us who knew her even 
briefly will soon forget her. 
Becky suddenly passed away 
this summer. She held the 
contract for the Snack Bar for 
the Fall 1998 and Spring 1999 
semesters. She and her crew 
kept us all from hunger while 
we were on campus last year. 
So now we bid her a sad 
farewell and a hearty thank 
you. We all will miss her and 
offer our condolences to all 
her friends and family. 

Now we are pleased to 
make the aimouncement that

University Child Development Center 

The University Child Development Center Di- 
rector, Tina, says this is not just a day care cen- 
ter; it is so much more than that. Their empha- 
sis is on education, and development, not 
merely baby sitting or day care. 

The University Child development center on 
the first floor of Montgomery Hall currently 
has two rooms, one called the Lady- 
bug room and the other is called the 
Sugar Plum room. The children go on 
field trips, and also take nature walks. 
Construction begins soon on an out door play 
ground for the little ones. The children's days 
are filled with education and development, but 
it is all fim for the kids. 

This month includes chef combo week, cur- 
rently focusing on "A" for Apples, the kids are 
learning to make applesauce. In addition they 
are playing an "A" for Apple game. 
Director Tina along wdth Christine, Ally, and 
Alice, and two work-study students Pat and 
Sara. The first week of school went smoothly, 
in a few minutes the children looked around 
and found a room filled with fim and games. 




Tea Time at Rhoades Hall 



As I came into 

Rhoades last Tuesday, I 

was greeted by smiling 

faces and an inquiry 

about having tea. My 

first thought was, am I 

in England? 



But no, I was still here in America. 

When the waitress named Lisa, 
with the smiling face, brought out 
my tea, she also brought with her 
many fancy pastries and sand- 
wiches. 

There was a broad assortment of 
Teas as well; the menu listed every- 
thing from Cinnamon Stick to Or- 
ange pekoe. There was Irish Break- 
fast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, and 
something called Constant Com- 
ment. But the one that intrigued 
me the most was the cup of Green 
Tea sitting in front of Dr. Huber. 

But, alas,I must apologize to Kim 

Price, as some of the sandwiches on 

the menu just weren't my cup of 

tea! 



and soon 
forgot 
about 
Mom, 
and Dad. 




E. Q. 's Skill #2... Team Work 



Skill # 2 emphasizes team-work, which is being pro- 
moted Sept 20, through October 9th. 
Your potential employer wants to know that you are a 
team player; this means being FLEXIBLE and COM- 
PATIBLE 
^ Be able to listen to others' opinions or ideas— 

differing opinions can give a person new insight. 
=> Be able to give your own opinions and ideas-don't 

be afraid or intimidated. 
=> Accept constructive feed back— typically the indi- 
vidual is only trying to help you become more 
effective in a specific area. 
=> Interact with with classmates, professors, faculty, 
co-workers and supervisors in a positive manner 



=> Learn to work toward group goals, as well as your 
personal goals. 

If you would like more information on how to become a 
better team player or if you have any other questions 
contact: Debra Johnson, Rm. 230 MH, ext 277

CALLING ALL MAJORSIJ!! 

Are you looking for a way to raise your IQ, meet new 
friends,and have fun all at the same time? If you're tired of just filling a 
seat and want to be part of a club that will make use of your talents, then 
Psychology Club is for you. 

We are seeking new faces from ALL majors with fresh ideas. 
We have big plans this year, but your input is always valuable. 

Some of the upcoming events you will see are interesting speak- 
ers, including a helpful lecture on the APA writing style to be given by 
our own Dr. Carie Forden in late September. (Watch for the signs in 
Rhoades). We will be doing fund raisers and hopefully attending a con- 
vention, among other things still in the works. Keep reading the Venango 
VOICE for more details later. 

In Psychology Gub, your skills and ideas will be put to to good 
use. Come to a meeting and see what we are all about. We meet Thurs- 
days at 1 :45 in the second floor lobby in Montgomery Hall. It is still not 
too late to join. We look forward to seeing you there! 



IN MEMORIAM, Dr. John Kuhn 

I was privileged to work under John Kuhn for the last seven years and he was always an inspiration for 
me: old fashioned words for a person of an increasingly rare breed. 

lohn knew you by name even if you were the newest person on the faculty. He taught by personal 
sxample: our how-to-teach seminars were important, so he took the time from his tight administrator's 
schedule to come and stay for part of the day. 

Writing was important, so he attended the English Department receptions for the students whose work 
svas published in Clarion Voices. He was that kind of person. 

Venango Campus was important to John and even though he was busy and his health imperfect, he would 
3ften come for Honors Nights and Commencements. His wasn't a podium-only presence; he would talk 
and make you feel important. And he always said thanks and answered letters. Indeed the Write-Inn's two 
tvork-study positions came from him. 

Fohn's was a classical education that made you learn a foreign language, that made you care about small 
details as well as large. That background and his endless giving enriched the Clarion Community. 

John Kuhn valued decency and tradition. The old burial service refers often to light; John brought light to 
;verything he did. Requiescat in pace.

Perfection isn't a popular concept 
any more, but it should be. Perfec- 
tion isn't your image; it's an ideal 
you strive to reach. 

The trouble with perfection is that it 
needs to be a habit and to inform all 
we do. The old adage was " If it's 
worth doing, it's worth doing well." 
Statistically, we work 1.3 jobs jobs 
today and of necessity, some things, 
like dishes in the sink and dust bun- 
nies, have to be neglected. Families 
understand these compromises. 

School, though, is preparation for 
work. If we use spell check, then 
double check starting with the last 
sentence, we can produce error-free 
writing. Of course that means mas- 
tering those pesky homonyms like 
there/their, pedal/peddle, its/it's 
,and so on. What's the point? One 
thing that makes us human is our 
love for learning. Keeping those dis- 
tinctions is a way into the history of 
our language. Sages tell us that edu- 
cation enables us to go out and 
change the world, one interview, one 
class, one piece of writing at a time. 
To prevent egg on the face, practice 
checking and getting things right. 
And if you want to be practical, 
there's one hairdresser who just lost 
a 20%-tipping client because said 
hairdresser slept through certain 
classes. There's one wanna-be travel 
agent who networked her way to an 
interview but lost out because they 
all goofed off during typing class. 

You also need a job before you can 
change the world

At the request of the 
Student Senate, this 
corner is reserved for 
for any and all infor- 
mation that they 
would like to print. Be 
sure to check back 
next week and every 
week. 

The Student Senate 
wants all Venango 
Campus students to 
know if they are expe- 
riencing any problems, 
please come to them 
and they will try to 
help. The student sen- 
ators are here to help. 
They are currently re- 
cruiting volunteers for 
committees. If you are 
interested in volun- 
teering some of your 
time, and maybe hav- 
ing some fun too, 



please talk to Kim 
Price in Frame 217 or 
to any of the Senators. 

The Senate regretfully 
wishes to say that The 
Golden Eagle Cafe 
(formerly the Venango 
Campus Snack Bar) 
cannot legally omit tax 
on their sales. All

The YMCA has signed up their allotted 
memberships for Venango Campus 
Campus students. In reguards to these 
30 memberships, it seems some stu- 
dents aren't using them. If these stu- 
dents aren't going to use the member- 
ships at the YMCA., maybe they should 
think about letting some one who really 
wants the membership have one. If we 
don't use the "Y" memberships. The 
"Y" may discontinue this deal for fu- 
ture semesters. This is an excellant way 
to blow off steam and rid your self of 
the stress that daily life here on campus 
brings. 

So Venango Campus Students, Use it 
or lose it! 



Nursing Note s 

by Diane Morrison 

Congratulations to nursing faculty 
members, Carolyn Masters, and Pam 

Lawrence. Carolyn Received a promo- 
tion to the position of Assistant Profes- 
sor. Pam Lawrence was granted a Sab- 
batical Leave for the Spring of 2001. 

Ms. Nancy Falvo, at the Pittsburgh site 
of Clarion University received the 
award for Excellence in Nursing Educa- 
tion from the Mu Xi Chapter of the 
Sigma Theta Tau International Honor 
Society in May 1999. Nancy's enthusi- 
asm and dedication to the students 
and their success in nursing is com- 
mendable. She is the Director of Pro- 
grams at the Pittsburgh site of the 
Clarion University. Nancy was a pio- 
neer in the Distance Education in the 
State System of Higher Education 
(SSHE). She is used as a consultant by 
the Vice Chancellor's in issues related 
to distance education grants which 
have been approved and funded by the 
SSHE for workshops, educational and 
teaching strategies, equipment, etc. 



Nancy's class in Death and Dying 
which was taught in Pittsburgh and 
sent via the interactive classroom to 
Venango Campus in the early stages of 
her work, helped establish "ITV" and 
its usefulness at Clarion University by 
increasing accessibility of courses to a 
greater number of students who other- 
wise may not have been availed the 
opportunity of participation. HATS 
OFF!!! to Nancy Falvo. 

Dr. Wlary Kavoosi has been elected to 
the position of Cinairperson of the nurs- 
ing Department of Clarion University, a 
place of honor and responsibility 
among her peers. 

The Master of Science in Nursing- 
Family Nurse Practitioner program is 
currently in the process of attaining 
NLNAC accreditation. The visitors will 
be on campus in October to complete 
the evaluation. The joint MSN-FNP pro- 
gram between Clarion and Slippery 
Rock Universities is the only one of its

MASSAGE DAY 

Coming soon on October 13 is 
Massage Day. A massage is an- 
other way to rid your self of the 
stress that we all gather in our 
daily lives. A massage can help 
us be more relaxed, along with 
being healthier. As you listen to 
gentle soothing sounds, you drift 
off into another world while the 
masseuse gently but firmly helps 
rid your body of unhealthy toxins 
that we take in every day. When 
it is over you come out feeling 
more relaxed than you have felt 
in a long time.

ATTENTION ALL NURS- 
ING STUDENTS! MID- 
TERMS ARE SOON TO 



BE A MEMORY. 

Nursing knowledge is 
akin to the building of 
mountains. It starts 
as a tiny mound of 
pebbles and sand. 
Gradually as the tor- 
rents of time, wind 
and rain (lectures, 
learning, and experi- 
ence) pound on its 
surface, it becomes a 
compendium of stone 
and strength, ever ex- 
panding and chang- 
ing in response to the 
surrounding environ- 
ment. So take heart, 
today IS only a small 
slice in a lifetime of 
education. Study long 
and hard. Good Luck!

Professors Walking Out?????????? 



Are the Professors going to be picketing? They're not certain yet, 
but there is a good chance that Dr. McElhatten and Dr Huber will 
be out walking a picket line soon. University Relations Director Ron 
Wilshire at Clarion's Main Campus stated that the University will 
remain open, and any professors that wish to remain in the 
classrooms will be allowed to do so. Mr. Wilshire also stated that 
the University will complete the semester even if they hold classes 
on weekends and evenings. Students living in dormitories will be 
able to remain, as the dorms will be open. 

I for one can see the Professors' side of the story, but we students 
also have to be concerned about our futures. I only hope that the

Senate Corner 



Student Senate 
Open Forum 



The Student Senate will be holding an 
Open Forum With Dr. Acton. It is being 
held in the Rhoades Center on October 21 
1999 at 12:30 P.M. This is a great oppor- 
tunity for students to bring their concerns 
and questions to the attention of Dr. Acton. 

As students you don't receive many 
chances like this to voice your opinions, so 
make the most of this event: get active, 
show/ up, and ask your questions. The 
Senate will also be offering a 20% discount 
at the snack bar to students and faculty on 
the day and time of the forum. The dis- 
count will start at 12:15P.M. and run 
though the forum. 

The Student Senate would also like 
to invite anyone who is interested in attend- 
ing our meetings to come and share your 
ideas. Senate meetings are held on Friday 
aftemoon at 1:15 P.M. in the Rhoades 
Center private dining room. Help us help 
you by coming and bringing your thoughts 
and ideas so that we can try to improve 
Venango Campus. 

Student Senate Secretary Sam Martz will 
hold office hours from 1-3 on Tuesdays. 
He would like to see club members from all 
the different clubs to get info on what 
they're doing. 



There is a new computer in Rhoades dining area for student use. Now 
we don't have to run to the Library or Montgomery to check our E-Mail. 
Have Fun!

Have you had your flu shots yet? If you have 
a chronic respiratory or cardiac condition, 
are immuno-suppressed, live with an indi- 
vidual who is chronically ill. Consult your 
doctor. The flu Vaccine will not necessarily 
prevent the flu but should lesson the sever- 
ity of the symptoms. Protect yourself and 
your loved ones. An ounce of prevention is 
worth a pound of cure.

Open Forum - Strike 171 




The Open Forum with President 
Sue Traynor and Tim Fogerty went 
off as scheduled Wednesday Octo- 
ber 20th. Both Ms. Traynor and 
Mr. Fogerty reassured the stu- 
dents that Clarion University will 
remain open In the advent of a 
strike. 

Faculty are invited to remain in the 
class rooms. Support personal will 
be at their jobs. Ms.Traynor and 
Mr. Fogerty both stated that in the 
event of a long term strike, they 
still can't see a scrapping of this 
semester. Administration intends 
to finish this semester and there 
are no plans for replacement fac- 
ulty, even if we have to make up 
classes on evenings and weekends. 



Administration realizes that a large 
number of students at Clarion and 
Venango Campus are non- 
traditional students. Therefore they 
have families to support by working 
weekends and evenings. Certain 
considerations will be taken in spe- 
cial cases 

The have asked that all students 
report to classes, then if their Pro- 
fessor don't show for class, it is up 
to the student whether or not they 
remain in the classrooms. 

Ms Traynor and Mr. Fogerty are 
confident students will be treated 
equally if it is necessary to cross 
the picket line.

Women's Support Group 



The women's support group at Venango Cam- 
pus was started several years ago when a fellow 
student recognized a need here at the Campus 
for a place where women could safely talk 
about anything of concern to them. College 
can be stressful and lonely. The support group 
is a place to be heard, understood and sup- 
ported. It is a place to find other women with 
perhaps similar problems/concerns and to lis- 
ten and learn how to cope. It is a place to meet 
new people and to make new friends. 

The group meets here on campus once a week 
on Thursday from 2-3:30, starting October 
28th, 1999. Anything discussed in the group is 
confidential. The group is facilitated by Kay 
King. Campus Counselor. Any women inter- 
ested can contact Kay King ext 283.

Whose Job? 

This is a story about four people 
named Everybody, Somebody, Any- 
body and Nobody. There was an 
important job to be done and Every- 
body was sure that Somebody would 
do it. Anybody could have done it, 
but Nobody did it. Somebody got 
angry about that because it was 
Everytjody's job. Everytrady thought 
Anybody could do it, but Nobody 
realized that Everybody wouldn't do 
it. It ended up that Everybody 
blamed Somebody when Nobody did 
what Anybody couJd have doneliil

You think you're the only student in class who doesn't 

know what the Professor is tatf^tng about. 

You can remember when John F. Kennedy 

was Presi<iefvt. 

You read the obituaries before the comics. 

You get nauseated watching a Freshjnan eating a

Women's Support Group 



The women's support group at Venango Cam- 
pus was started several years ago when a felJow 
student recognized a need here at the Campus 
for a place where women could safely talk 
about anything of concern to them. College 
can be stressful and lonely. The support group 
is a place to be heard, understood and sup- 
ported. It is a place to find other women with 
perhaps similar problems/concerns and to lis- 
ten and learn how to cope. It is a place to meet 
new people and to make new friends. 

The graup meets here on campus once a week 
on Thursday from 2-3:30, starting October 
28th, 1999. Anything discussed in the group is 
confidential. The group is facilitated by Kay 
King. Campus Counselor. Any women inter- 
ested can contact Kay Ki ng exL 2^^

Sexual Harassment 



Have you ever felt intimidated, or very un- 
comfortable? Did you feel like you wanted to 
run and hide? 

It's called Sexual Harassment and it's not a 
nice feeling. It makes a person feel belittled 
and dirty; it makes others feel less of a 
person. 

I think most will agree when I say that every 
one should be free of unwanted advances 
and unwanted touches (sexual or otherwise). 
No one has to put up with comments and 
innuendo's as well. Two students here at 
Venango Campus discussed this issue with 
me recently. I could see their discomfort 
very clearly. I sympathize with them whole- 
heartedly. No one should have to live in fear 
of any unwelcome advances. Not only is it a 
right, IT IS THE LAW!!!! No one has to put up 
with this!!!!!!!

"Venango Campus Update" 
Two Snack Bar positions will be avail- 
able next semester for interested stu- 
dents. The first is the Golden Eagle 
Cafe Manager position; the Second is 
the Accounting position in the Cafe. 
Clarion Business Credits are available 
for both positions. The manager posi- 
tion may also work up to 29 hours per 
week at work study wages. The Senate 
is looking for an energetic, well orga- 
nized student, hopefully with expeh- 
ence in the food industry. This is an 
excellent opportunity to enhance your 
resume! Basically you would be man- 
aging your own business. Applications 
are available at Rhoades front desk, 
and are due November 12 in the Stu- 
dent Services office. 

The Senate would like to assist the 
campus in increasing our enrollment. 
They have taken on the project of 
coordinating student volunteers to 
make calls to prospective students. 
This task can be done on YOUR OWN 
TIME and can be done here on cam- 
pus, using the campus phones. When 
enrollments increase, often more re- 
sources are allocated to the Campus 
(like faculty, classes, etc) So, this 
should benefit everyone! If you are 
interested in donating an hour or so 
per week of your time, please sign up 
in the Student Services office.

What is your E.Q.? 

OR. . . 

Do you have the "right stuff" to gain future employment? 

Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed several 
posters about E.Q. skills in your classrooms and around 
campus. E.Q. is your Employability Quotient, or the skills 
that you will want to develop to ensure your best employ- 
ment opportunities. Employers in addition to the appro- 
priate academic credentials seek these key professional 
and social skills. 

During the first few weeks of November, the Career Center 
will promote E.Q. skill # 4, Written and Oral Presenta- 
tion. This skill emphasizes the importance of professional 
communication and includes the following points: 

. Use correct grammar while speaking and in your writing 
(He and I, NOT Him and me!). 

Use appropriate language, instead of lazy language (Yes 
and No. NOT Yeah and Nah) 

Project your voice; speak distinctly so others can hear and 
understand you. These skills are important in face to face 
to face and telephone conversation, and public speaking. 

. Develop good writing skills with school assignments. Usu- 
ally, some form of writing is required with professional jobs. 

Remember: Practice makes perfect! 

If you would like to obtain further information on the E. Q. 
program, contact Debra Johnson in the Career Center at 
230 Montgomery Hall or at extension 277.

A Special Note of Thanks 

How many times do all of us take time out 
of out busy day to complain about our 
professors? The test was too hard! They give 
us too much home work! They're unfair! I 
bet the numbers are pretty high. 
Recently, my sister Patti and I lost a very 
close friend to breast cancer. We were un- 
able to attend some of our classes. We both 
have Beth Jackson for different courses. Not 
only did Beth understand our circum- 
stances, she emailed us and sent out a 
sympathy card. How many professors at 
main campus would have done this? Thank 
you Beth for your loyal to our family and 
your dedication to Venango Campus. You 
are truly a great asset to the faculty team 
and also a true friend to the students. 

Thank you 

Jimi Winger

GOLDEN EAGLE CAFE 
Senate Corner 
Anonymous Letter 



Dr. Reinhard and Dr. Acton held an 
informal discussion Thursday 
November 11th in Rhoades Center. At 
the discussion any student who had 
questions for Dr. Reinhard could sit 
down and talk. I expected this forum 
to be a very formal question and 
answer affair. In fact, it was very 
freindly and almost like a family 
discussion over dinner. 

Dr Reinhard talked with first year 
student Jamie Show, in an air of 
familiarity as well as Student Senator 
President Lance Bowes 

Some of the questions asked were 
about parking at Clarion's main 
campus, housing for students in 
Clarion and increased enrollment 
here at Venango Campus. 

In a drawing by Dr Reinhard and Dr 
Acton at the Forum, Jamie Ahrens, 
and Adrian Cooper recieved a free 
meal at the Golden Eagle Cafe.

Grammar Tips 



Do professors wince or cringe when you talk to them? 
Maybe it's not the garlic hoagie; maybe it's your grammar. 
Errors like "I seen, I done, I had went, and I had wrote" 
offend educated listeners. ( It should be "I saw, I did, I had 
gone, and I had written.") Other ear-graters include "Him 
and me got it," "They gave it to he and I," and "Them is." 
Pains with your grammar now mean gains in your job

"Venango Campus Update" 

The Senate would like to assist The 
Campus in increasing our enrollment, 
they have taken on the project of coor- 
dinating student volunteers to make 
calls to prospective students. This task 
can be done on YOUR OWN TIME and 
can be done here on campus, using 
the campus phones. When enrollments 
increase, often more resources are al- 
located to the Campus (like faculty, 
classes, etc) So, this should benefit 
everyone! If you are interested in do- 
nating an hour or so per week of your 
time, please sign up in the Student 
Services office.

What is your E.Q.? 



OB.. 



Do you have the 'right stufT to gain future employment? 

Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed several posters about E. Q. skills 
in your classrooms and around campus. E.Q. is your Employability Quotient, or 
the skills that you will want to develop to ensure your best employment opportuni- 
ties. Employers in addition to the appropriate academic credentials seek these 
key professional and social skills. 

During the first few weeks of November, the Career Center will promote E. Q. skill 
it 4, Written and Oral Presentation. This skill emphasizes the importance of 
professional communication and includes the following points: 

• Use correct grammar while speaking and in your writing (He and I, NOT 
Him and me!) 

• Use appropriate language, instead of lazy language (Yes and No, NOT 
Yeah and Nah) 

• Project your voice, speak distinctly so others can hear and understand you. 
These skills are important in face to face and telephone conversation, and 
public speaking. 

• Develop good writing skills with school assignments. Usually, some form of 
writing is required with professional jobs. 

Remember: Practice makes perfect! 

If you would like to obtain further information on the E Q. program, contact Debra 
Johnson in the Career Center at 230 Montgomery Hall or at extension 277. 



Message to the Learning 
Support Center Tutors. 

I would like to give special 
thanks to Lance Bowes and 
Aubrey Hulings, as well as all the 
tutors in the Learning Center, for 
all the help they have given to 
me. Without people like them I 
would not be able to succeed in 
my classes. 

If you do not understand 
something, or if you are afraid to 
ask questions in class, go to the 
Learning Support Center. This 
service helped me; it can help 
you too!!

School Phobia 

by Lisa Plasan 
It is difficult to get the old blood flowing on a Monday (especially for us 
returning adults). But have you ever been afraid about going to school? 
Well, chances are that you have never suffered school phobia. Because 
most individuals suffering from school phobia rarely attend college. 

School phobia is preferred to be called School Refusal by the A.P.A. 
(American Physiological Association). It usually affects school age 
children after a long break such as summer vacation. When you think 
about the words school refusal, one tends to imagine a screaming, 
spoiled child that is just expressing themselves. However, most of the 
time a child suffering from school refusal doesn't scream at all. They 
may shyly whimper on the outside. The only screaming they do is on 
the inside. 

School refusal is often associated with problems on the home front. 
Perhaps it can be trigged by a death in the family, a divorce or even 
having a parent return to school. The phobic child becomes morbid 
and withdrawn. If you where to ask a phobic child why they cannot stop 
crying, they cannot answer you. They don't understand why they are so 
afraid to go to school. 

As well as physical harm, school phobia can cause deep-rooted 
physiological problems if not addressed properly. In fact, research 
shows that many criminals and alcohol abusers suffered from school 
refusal. However, the most dangerous element of school refusal is the 
lack of awareness and acceptance of its existence in today's society. 

Once the child has been diagnosed with school refusal the battle has 
just begun. With this diagnoses comes a great deal of work for the 
parents, family and teachers of a phobic child. A phobic child needs to 
become secure in their school surroundings. Therefore, a process 
called desensitization is initialed. It involves the parent staying in the 
classroom for an hour or so the first week and slowly increasing the 
amount of time every day. When the child has mastered staying an 
entire day, the parent will continue staying in the school, however not 
in the child's classroom. 

The parent is often ridiculed and accused by other parents and staff 
members of spoiling the child. However, the parent is encouraged 
continuously by school faculty not to give up. The process of the 
desensitization depends on the severity of the phobic child. It could 
take anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 months. Although this is time 
consuming, it is a small price to pay for a well rounded academically 
happy child. 

We as parents have a responsibility to our children to guarantee their 
health, happiness and safety. If you have a child that is having 
problems at school, please talk to them, but most of all listen to them. 
Possibly, there is more going on in their lives than you are aware. 
Perhaps, they are not screaming on the outside, but are screaming on 
the inside. Perhaps they just need an hour of your time. 



Write-Inn Questionnaire 
Results 

We are pleased with the re- 
sults of the Write Inn question- 
naire. The majority of the stu- 
dents who participated in our 
survey have visited the Write 
Inn and will do so in the future. 
For most of you who partici- 
pated, the Write Inn hours are 
accessible. However, sugges- 
tions were made considering 
evening and weekend hours. 
These comments are appreci- 
ated and will be taken into con- 
sideration. Thank you to all 
who took the time to partici- 
pate. It will help us make the 
Write Inn the best that it can 
be for all students. 

Staci Holquist 

Attention: Current Student Worker 
Employees: 

Remember to do the following or your 
paychecks may be delayed. 

1. Print correct totals in the "hours 
worked" section on your time sheets. 
Remember: You do not get paid for 
1/2 hours. For example, if you work, 

4-1/2 hours the first week and 4 hours 
the second, you may not list 8-1/2 

hours. You will need to speak to your 

supervisor to see what needs to be 

done to adjust your time sheet. 

2. Sign, date, and return your time 
sheets to the box on my desk in Frame 

before 2 p.m. Friday. Remember to 
obtain your Supervisor's signature. 

3. Double check your time sheet to 
make sure that you have completed all 

the above. There are many student 
employees, and your cooperation 

makes my job a lot easier. 
As always, come see me in Frame 
Office if you have any questions.

Holiday Care Packages 

The office of Student Services is already 
thinking ahead toward the holidays. This 
year our office is accepting monetary dona- 
tions to be given to individuals in need 
within our Venango Campus student body. 

If you would like to contribute to this 
worthy cause, you may drop off your dona- 
tion to either Kay King or Bonnie Kostek in 
the Student Services Office. If you prefer to 
write a check, It should be made payable to 
Kay King. 

Also, please feel free to submit to me any 
names of students who you feel may be 
financially stretched during the the Holi- 
days. We will use these submissions to 
deliver a Venango Holiday Care Package. 

Thank you in advance for helping to make 
someone's Holiday Season a little bit 
brighter.

Learning Support Center 

We are pleased to announce that we now 
have Talking Typing Tutor and Body Works 

installed in our lab. What does this mean for 
you? If you need to learn how how to type, or 
if you simply want to freshen up on your 
skills, Talking Typing Tutor can help. 

Body Works (ideal for A&P students) takes 
you on a 3D journey through the human 
anatomy. You can explore information on 
every bone and organ in your body, complete 
animated demonstrations, or even test your 
knowledge. 

Come to the LSC (room 318 MH) and ask 
how to get started!

Attention: Current Student Worker Employees: 

Remember to do the following or your paychecks 

may be delayed. 

1. Print correct totals in the "hours worked" section 

on your time sheets. Remember: You do not get 

paid for 1/2 hours. For example, if you work, 4-1/2 

hours the first week and 4 hours the second, you 
may not list 8-1/2 hours. You will need to speak to 
your supervisor to see what needs to be done to ad- 
just your time sheet. 
2. Sign, date, and return your time sheets to the 
box on my desk in Frame before 2 p.m. Friday. Re- 
member to obtain your Supervisor's signature. 
3. Double check your time sheet to make sure that 
you have completed all the above. There are many 
student employees, and your cooperation makes my 
job a lot easier. 
As always, come see me in Frame 
Office if you have any questions.

Finals Week 

As finals week approaches, we 
all feel ourselves stressing out. 
We get all worked up, and we 
tie our muscles up in knots. 
Before any final take a few 
minutes, close your eyes, 
breathe deep, relax, and visual- 
ize yourself somewhere calm 
and serene. Do you like the 
seashore, or perhaps a moun- 
tain stream? It can be any 
where you feel very calm and 
very relaxed. Continue to 
breathe 
deeply 
and then 
tell your- 
self this 
test isn't 
any dif- 
f e r e n t 
than 
other 
tests we 
have 
aced. So 
why 

worry about it? If you are wor- 
ried about it, you may develop 
memory block. 

Good luck on the finals

Thanks From Psychology Club 

Psychology Club would like to thank everyone 

who attended our guided imagery demonstra- 
tion in November. Attendance was terrific. We 

got a lot of positive feedback, so we will try it 

again maybe next semester. Congratulations to 

our three door prize winners, who each took 

home their own guided imagery tapes. Also, 
we'd like to again thank Rhonda Barnette from 

the Mind/Body Wellness Center in Meadville, 

for taking the time to show us how it's done! 
We hope everyone who attended will be able to 

use what they've learned to help relieve stress 
throughout finals. 

Psychology Club would like to wish everyone 

"good luck" on your finals and have a safe and 

Happy Holidays! See you in January!!!! 



E-mail Passwords 

The end of the semester is nearly upon us. To 

make your return to Clarion next semester 

easier, Computing Services has put together 

the following list of "things to do" prior to 

leaving the campus for the semester break. If 

you perform these steps, your student CNet 

account will be ready for use when you return. 

1. Change your password. Student pass- 
words are valid for 180 days. If you change 
your password before you leave, it will still be 
in effect when your return. Please don't forget 
your new password. If you do not plan to re- 
turn for the spring semester but will return 
within the next year, your username will re- 
main the same but the password will be 
changed back to your Student Identification 
Number and PIN. 

2. "Signoff" or "Unsubscribe" to all internet 

e-mail list servers. Failure to do so may 
cause your allotted disk space to be filled. In 
this case access to your account will be tem- 
porarily disabled until you call Computing 
Services to re-activate your account. 

If you are not planning to return for the Spring 
semester, be aware that current plans include 
deleting e-mail messages during the summer 
of 2000. Students not returning for the 
Spring semester may want to save their e- 
mail messages by extracting to a file or print- 
ing the messages prior to leaving the campus. 
Also, student web pages remain on the server 
for one year, so if you are not returning in the 

Spring, you may want to delete your web 
pages. Once your student CNet account has 
been disabled, you will not be able to update, 
delete, or add web pages. For further infor- 
mation regarding these procedures, visit 
http://www.clarion.edu/admin/compserv/ 
studentaccts.htm 

Venango VOICE submissions for 

January 18 should be e-mailed to
