Nearly 4,000 persons are expected to
attend the New Student Orientation
'Program at the University of
I Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) during first
I summer session, according to Peter Wirtz,
I student affairs coordinator.
1 At one-day sessions beginning
tomorrow, UNL student hosts, faculty
and staff members- will introduce the
University to prospective students and
"We're not educating them about the
University," Wirtz said, "we're just
familiarizing them with it."
The orientation program is designed to
clarify and finalize each new student's
pre-registration and to help him become
familiar with academic opportunities at
But Wirtz said the program has an
I equally important goal of showing
students and parents the diversity of
student needs, interests, attitudes and
activities" at UNL.
"From the very start, we, want to
make the participants feel comfortable
and show them there are people here who
care about them," Wirtz said.
The orientation activities will begin
with a presentation by University
students who will portray student life and
involvment on the campus through a
panel discussion, film or slide show.
Visiting students and parents then will
be separated. Small groups of students
accompanied by a student host will "do
whatever they want and need to do to get
a quick glimpse of the University," Wirtz
For example the small groups may
wish to visit the Undergraduate Library,
the Recreation Department, Student
Health, the Union and residence halls, he
"The kids will ask anything, from
'where do I do my laundry' to 'when can
I get my football tickets," Wirtz said.
"And that's just what we want them to
do. We hope we can tailor the day's
events so it meets the needs of each kid."
In the afternoon, the new students will
meet with a member of their college
faculty for individual academic advising.
"We'll actually be able to finalize each
student's schedule on the spot by feeding
it into a computer at the Engineering
Building," Wirtz said. "This way, we can
guarantee each student's schedule and he
can even visit his classrooms for fall if he
While the visiting students are touring
with student hosts, and finalizing fall
schedules, parents will be divided by the
college to meet with deans and faculty
After lunch, parents will attend a
Counseling Center presentation where
"topics parents need to know about" will
be discussed, Wirtz said.
Vocational choice, academic
achievement and the student's search for
independence are topics that typically
concern parents, he said.
A final feedback session will allow
students and parents to critique the day
for improvements in future orientation
Wirtz said that since the program was
originated 10 years ago, more than
40,000 new students and their parents
Humanities combined in 2 workshops
Designing interdisciplinary humanities
courses is the goal of two secondary
education workshops being held during
first summer session according to Dr.
Vaughn Jaenike, workshop coordinator.
Secondary school teachers of English,
music, art, drama and social studies will
"share , humanities experiences so they
can learn to think in an interdisciplinary
fashion and design such experiences in
their schools," Jaenike said.
One of the workshops is a repeat of
last year's humanities workshop, which
featured a series of "humanities
happenings," workshop assistant Ardith
Robertson, Hastings College, said.
The "happenings" included: a tour of
Sheldon Art Gallery with an art specialist
as guide; a trip to Brownville for a

things to do, according to Dan Stellar,
And most of it already is paid for.

their student fees for recreational
programs and $1 for recreation, Stellar
"Any additional charges made for
some of the activities just cover actual
costs, like paying instructors renting
equipment or transportation expense, in
some cases," he said.
During the summer, all of the
department's facilities and programs are
open to students, faculty, staff and their

riverboat ride, an afternoon at Wesleyan
University s summer playhouse and a
general survey of the community;
attending summer opera and summer
theater performances, and "just getting
acquainted," she said.
About 30 secondary teachers will
participate in the workshop, and as last
year, each of them will design
interdisciplinary studies units for use in
their own schools, Jaenike said.
"The integrated approach is really one
of the oldest methods of education,"
Jaenike said. "It probably dates from
early Greek days.
"We just hope that by studying all of
man's means of self-expression-art,
music, literature, architecture, drama-we
can help broaden the perspective of what
they study instead of putting things into
narrow channels," he said.

For summer leisure activities, two
outdoor recreation areas will be available
on the downtown campus.
The lighted area east of Cathcr-Pound
Hall between Vine and R Streets includes
eight tennis courts, five outdoor handball
or paddleball courts and a general playing
field. The lighted area adjacent to
Harper-Schramm-Smith dorm complex
includes 10 tennis courts, 3 artificial turf
putting greens, basketball backboards and
a general play area.
"Maybe by next year we'll have part
of our outdoor recreation area now
proposed for East Campus," Stellar said.
"It's going to include a golf driving range,
fields for flag football and a rchery,
tennis and handball courts and even an
outdoor ice skating rink."
For indoor recreation, the Coliseum
will be open from I -5 p.m. Monday
through Friday. The Men's Physical
Education Building will be open from 1-6
p.m. Monday through Friday.
The swimming pool and sunbathing
area at Abel-Sandpz Hall will be open
daily from noon to 10 p.m. The cost is
$.25 per swim or $1.50 for a summer
session ticket. A lifeguard is on duty at all
By presenting a valid UNL
identification card, students, faculty and
staff may check out basketballs,
footballs, horseshoes, soccer balls and
equipment for archery, squash, volleyball,
paddleball, badminton and so It ball.
"Some things, of course, still need to
be studied in great depth," he said, "but
they'll all connect up later."
Jaenike said the ultimate goal of such
interdisciplinary approaches in the "hop,?
that students will be able to establii,n
some values and defensible ideas about
their own lives."
The second summer workshop will be
a more advanced version, primarily for
last year's participants.
The workshop will emphasize
problems of working as a member of an
integrated studies team which may or
may not be in the same building, school
system or community; developing
humanities studies outlines; finding and
organizing people, places and things as

write a textbook for," Jaenike
emphasized. "It has to be a grassroots
The workshops are funded by the
National Endowment for the Arts
through the Nebraska Arts Council,
which also funded an
artist-in-brief-residence program used by
some of last year's workshop participants.
The program made it possible for
secondary school teachers across the state
to invite various artists into their
communities for several days to
demonstrate skills to school and
Artists-in-brief-rcsidence during the
past school year included filmmakers, a
composer, a ballet dancer, a Western
stories writer, an architect and musicians
who demonstrated electronic music with
a Moog synthesizer.
"AU of these resources for humanities
experiences are just another way of
extending the classroom into the
community," Jaenike said.
