Business students ban together
in hopes of improving CBA
By David Holloway
Over 225 University of Nebraska-Lin
coln business students filled a confer
ence room at Commercial Federal
Bank Thursday night to help lobby for more
money from the state Legislature to improve
the College of Business Administration.
Shcnncn Saltxman, president of the student
advisory board, called the meeting a “rally of
students,“asking for more student membership
in the new Student Action committee.
Saltxman said the purpose of the action
committee is to have a liaison between CBA
and the Legislature.
“People don’t understand how powerful
students are when it comes to making any
pro sals,” Saltxman said.
Il/man said he would like to see at least
6(000 to 8,000 letters sent to Gov. Kay Orr
outlining the problems involved with the busi
None of the 225 students responded when
Saltxman asked for a show of hands to see who
thought CBA met their standards of a good
“People arc not getting the classes they want
because there arc not enough professors or
enough room for classes in the business col
lege,” Saltxman said.
Tim Trysla, senior business finance major,
said CBA needs more professors, computers
“We don’t want to have to study in the halls
in between classes anymore,” Trysla said.
Kim McAuliff, senior financing major, said
five years ago the college had 68 professors and
3,300 students. This year there are 61 profes
sors and 3,500 students, she said.
McAuliff said if 30 professors would be
added to the staff, the average would be 29
students to one teacher which is the normal
capacity for a classroom. She said 30 percentof
the faculty in CBA are graduate assistants.
Mary Harding, director of special program
ming in the dean’s office, said there is an
excel lent staff a vai (able in CB A, but there i s not
enough to meet the demand of the students.
Trysla said the last time UNL received
money from the Legislature, CBA was granted
$60,000. He compared that to the University of
Nebraska at Omaha’s business college which
received $1.6 million.
Salt/man said the student action council
does not want to take away from UNO’s busi
ness college, but only wishes to improve UNL’s
Salt/man said the student action committee
will meet Thursday at 5:30 p.m. to discuss its
plan of action.
Universal banquet at UNL
By Jamie Pitts
nhc University of Nebraska-Lincoln
International Students Organization
will host its 7th annual international
banquet Sunday. The banquet will begin at 6
p.m. in the Centennial Room at the Nebraska
“There is no diversity of culture,” at UNL,
said Amaar Hyder, social secretary of the
group. “We hope this will make a change.”
A buffet dinner with food from eight coun
tries will begin at 6:30 p.m., Hyder said.
During the banquet, trophies will be disu ib
uted for the first lime from the International
Student Athletic Committee’s Olympics in
September, he said.
After the banquet, Hyder said, there will be
a fashion show and international dances.
A Vietnamese band made up of UNL stu
dents and alumni will play just before the
dance, said Brendan Wong, another social
secretary for the organization.
KFRX radio station also is sponsoring the
banquet. The dance will begin at 9 p.m., Hyder
Hyder said he hopes to have 600 students
and community members in attendance. About
the same number attended the banquet last
year, he said.
Tickets arc $8 for adults and $4 for children
12 and under.
Wong said about 220 tickets already have
been sold at the booth in the Nebraska Union,
which is 40 percent of last year’s ticket sales.
Today tickets will be available at the City
Union or by calling the International Educa
tional Services office at 472-3264.
“There is so much culture available to them
(Americans), if only they would make an ef
fort,’’ Wong said.
“We arc bringing the world to them,” he
said. “All they have to do is come.”
Student psychologists offer personal counseling
By Tom Koenig
Students, who need help with
their problems, someone to
talk to, or psychological
advice, can take advantage of a cam
pus program offered by profession
ally trained students.
Dr. Collie Conoley of the Educa
tional Psychology Clinic says Uni

Conolcy said this semester, nine
student psychologists are involved in
the program. Next semester, he said,
14 to 18 students will be working.
The service offers school and per
sonal counseling psychologists.
Clients can choose either, depending
upon their needs, he said.
The school psychologists arc pri
marily for younger children who have
been asked by their parents to attend
the clinic. They deal primarily with
problems concerning school and peer
Counseling psychologists usually
work with college students and older
adults. Problems often confronted in
these sessions arc: low self-confi
dence, anxiety, poor relations with
other students and parents, loneli
ness, depression, career choices, par
enting (if the student has a child) and
Conolcy said low self-esteem is

When student psychologists hear
the patients’ problems, they arc
monitored by faculty. The faculty
analyze tape recorded sessions with
the patient, use two-way mirrors and
have classroom discussions with the
student psychologists to find out what
they can do to help the patient.
Conolcy said about 50 to 60 cases
arc studied each school year.
“Sometimes we have problems
with clients but we try to know the
patient well enough before we give
any advice,” Conolcy said. “Some
times the problems stem from student
psychologists not knowing enough
background on the person they are
Psychologists sometimes have a
hard lime analyzing patients because
this is not an exact science. But people
usually arc very satisfied with the
service, he said.

Louis Poppc, director of the
council’s headquarters, said UNL
students that use the center usually
need help with skills they didn’t
learn in tnc past, or skills they want
to acquire from the council’s Eng

Six of the council’s lOOstudents
attend UNL, she said.
The council’s programs can
help students on a more individual

The program has a ratio of one
student to one tutor, she said, which
Jlives the student and tutor more
recdom to decide what hours to
work together, she said. The pro
gram is free, but the materials cost
$15 to $20.
UNL students also can become
tutors, Poppe said. Anyone inter
ested in tutoring must be willing to
attend a 12-hour or 18-hour work

a tutor or getting help from the
council should contact the Lincoln
