what life would be like if ev-

Boring!! Although variety
brings clashes and conflict,
it is a small price to pay for
the unusual and unexpect-

A Day In
The Life Of...

Most of us take for granted our col-
lege lifestyle and fail to realize the dif-
ferences that exist between the types
of students. If you could spend a day
in the life of a commuter, a non-tradi-
tional and a resident student and ex-
perience their daily routine, the differ-
ences would be clearly evident. Take,
for instance, breakfast time. A com-
muter must wake up early enough to
prepare and eat breakfast, and still al-
low for enough driving time. Many
times the non-traditional student has
to make breakfast for other family
members and also clean up afterward
before leaving for class. The resident,
however, can simply roll out of bed,
get dressed, and head out to the din-
ing hall a mere half an hour before
classtime. It is these little things that
account for the contrasts in lifestyles.

On these two pages, you can get a
glimpse of what it would be like to
walk a school-day in the shoes of a
commuter, a non- trad and a resident.
Special thanks go to Cindy, Steph and
Bree for allowing us to invade their
lives for a day and share it with you.

Since You Were Gone

After the 1989
spring semester, con-
struction began on the
two newest campus
additions. This mas-
sive project entailed
the building of a park-
ing plaza and new Ty-
ler Run Apartments.
Ordinarily, an under-
taking of this size
would take close to a
year to complete.
However, they were
erected in four
months. The plaza
doubled the parking
capacity for that area.
The combined cost to-
talled in excess of
three million dollars.


For years students, faculty, and visitors could not under-
stand York's classroom numbering system: You could find
room *78 next to room *142. Due to building additions
on sloping ground some rooms were caught a half a flight
between others. Thus, there seemed to be no rhyme or
reason to the system. Year after year students would ask
to have the numbering system straightened out. Unfortu-
nately, the only response was signs being posted to try to
clarify the haphazard room numbering. But, with the addi-
tion of the Business Administration Center, Mr. Melato and
Dean DeMieester mapped out a logical system. With this
change, people can more easily find their way around
classroom complex.

On The Verge
Of Collapse

What a discovery!-when the swimming
pool's secondary ceiling beams were un-
covered, its primary beams were found to
be rotted. Fragments of the secondary
beams were peeling off and the lights were
about to fall. To correct the problem new
beams were installed. This involved paint-
ing, removing the floor work and assessing
the damage done to the tiles. After redoing
the pool, a $250,000 pool pack was in-
stalled. The pool pack acts as a giant dehu-
midifler, drawing out the moisture and
chlorine while pumping heat back into the
room. With these renovations, YCP's pool
should not require any further work in the
years to come.

According to


Direct quotes from our president regarding some commonly

Corey Rlmel


Is 17405 or 17403 York College's correct zip code?

j~AAr "I raised the same question about two years ago

C>' 1 because 1 live on campus and mine is 17403. They
said well, residential is 17403 but because the
college has a post office box number it's 17405. Then they
checked into it further and said they no longer use the
17405. You'll notice all of our stationery is 17403 and now
we only use that one. "

■ ■

Is there such a rule concern-
ing the amount of time to wait
on if professor?


"Mot officially- now that's
the quick answer- not offi-
cially. There is a tradition
throughout the country, which is
not binding for anybody, and it
goes something like this- you wait
five minutes for an instructor, you
wait ten minutes for an assistant
professor, fifteen minutes for an as-
sociate professor and twenty min-
utes for a professor. Now it is not
binding and nobody adheres to it,
okay, but that used to be when 1
went to college and it's still ban-
died about, no it's not in any man-
ual; it's a tradition that you wait, a
courtesy, you know, his car could
be broken down or her car could be
broken dovm. There's a guideline,
you wait ten or fifteen minutes then
you poke around the comer and
see if he's coming or something
like that. "


Why isn't there a car
bridge across the creek?

"Well, initially the
road was put in a long
time ago so I don't
know the original thinking.
But then questions were
raised about why not put a
bridge in now? I do know that
when we put in the Campbell
Bridge, the foot bridge, the
Corps of Army Engineers got
involved and about fifteen dif-
ferent state and federal agen-
cies. They have such tight re-
strictions that to put one in
that would carry automobiles
today would probably go well
beyond tlie gym in size and we
would have to do so many
things that it would be finan-
cially not feasible. Now, num-
ber two, and 1 think it's as
good a reason, is that more
students prefer not having a
bridge because they love to
drive through it. They love to
wash their cars in it and they
like to claim that we're one of
the few colleges in the country
that has a little river flowing
right down through the mid-
dle of the campus and you
have to drive through it. So it
is an attraction, the way it is
now rather than having a
bridge. "


Dr. losue

rrom the Top

asked questions about York College of Pennsylvania.

Why is there only one footbridge to cross the creek?

'It depends on what kind of access you want to
have to the campus. While its nice to open up the
campus to non-students, there's also the problem
of people inundating the campus and using the
facilities and abusing the facilities so the students can't
even use them. So while we allow the community people
to use it, we really don't want to have it used so much that
our students can't even use it, and we have had that
problem in the past."

Corey RImel


Why isn t the dining hall
system updated?

/J "Don't you think we do

"^J "j things here to suit what
' we think will help the ma-
jority of students and still keep
the cost down? Everything that
suits a personal preference will
jack the cost up. Like the plan for
the dining room. Eat at Gettys-
burg and you will have all those
choices and you will pay one and
a half times as much. We've de-
cided that we'll offer one plan-
we broke down and offered an-
other one (the lunch plan). We
still managed to keep the cost
down- but with every breakdovm
of the plan we'll have to jack the
price up. It's a fact of life. Every
accomodation that customizes
something to suit what you want
or what he wants or what 1 want
always costs more. And that's
what causes a lot of colleges to
have $17,000 price tags. Then
you find out that the accomoda-
tions are mostly physical and
personal and not academic. And
the professors aren't around
anyway. Try to find a professor
somewhere. I'll bet our college
professors are more available
than the average college profes-
sor, because that's the atmo-
sphere. We try to accomodate on
the academic side.


Why are four credits of physi-
cal education required?


"Because it's important
to take care of your body, to
leam about the body and to
do it over the course of your life.
Why four credits? Well, why any
number? Why twelve credits of
this? Why twelve credits of English?
Let me answer you truthfully. Hon-
estly, I think you should be forced
to take four classes of gym and you
shouldn't get any credit for it be-
cause it's not academic, that is my
opinion. The other side of it is, if
you did start taking into account
everybody's personal preference
you'd have anarchy about what is
the curriculum. "

A Fascinating Idea

When the special plate program got start-
ed about four years ago Tom O'Conner be-
gan thinking about York College joining the
ranks of these other schools. Mow I guess
your thinking four years? Yes, that is how
long it has taken him to get only 468 names.
For an organization to be able to get a spe-
cial plate, they must have 500 names. Once
O'Conner can get the 500 names, then he
must mail out a questionaire, asking for cur-
rent information, to every person that is on
the list. Once he gets all 500 confirmations
and $20 back they then can send them to the
state. People who have moved out of the
state are no longer eligible for a specia
plate. That brings us to the question who can
get a special license plate? Well any alumni,
current students, faculty, administration,
anybody in the York College "family. "

The plates will not serve as a marketing
ploy to entice new students but they will cre-
ate more school spirit. "The plates are a
matter of pride and visibility, " says O'Con-
ner. The plates will put York College in a
group of schools that have had a name rec-
ognition for a lot longer such as Penn State,
Temple, LaSalle, and Lehigh. All these
schools at one time or another were ranked
in Division 1 or II sports nationally. That is
one characteristic common among all of the
schools that have plates. At York College it is
a matter of pride.
