living on East Campus.
More students would probably
break the gun policy if it were changed,
“Students might be inclined to keep
them in their rooms and not tell any
one about them,” Cilliers said.
ASUN President Shawntell
Hurt gen said A SUN voted against the
gun policy before she took office. She
said that in talking with students, she
found an overwhelming number were
opposed to the policy.
Hurtgen said the students expressed
concern over the inconvenience and
the ability to enforce the new policy.
She said any students who had
strong feelings on either side should
come to the ASUN office and sign up
to speak at the meeting.

John Beacon, director of scholar
ships and financial aid, said he had
little hope things would turn around.
UNL students take on an average of
$13 million in subsidized Stafford
loans every year.
Federal work-study jobs also are
on the chopping block. At UNL, Bea
con said, that would provide students
with $1 million in lost aid to make up.
At one time, grants made up 60
percent of financial aid. Now, he said,
that number has reversed and loans
make up the majority.
In a letter to Gov. Ben Nelson,
David Powers, director of the Ne
braska Coordinating Commission for
Post Secondary Education, reported
federal funds for Nebraska’s State
Student Incentive Grant declined by
more than $65,000 for 1995.
“The decline ... represents a step
backward for the financially needy
students in Nebraska,” Powers said.
“While their costs to attend
postsecondary institutions continue to
increase, their financial assistance
becomes more and more inadequate.”
Nelson was asked to request an
equivalent increase in state support
for the program. That issue is now
before the Nebraska Legislature.
To Beacon, more is not necessarily
“The federal government is mak
ing it easier for (students) to borrow
mdreinoney,. when I’m not sure it^s
necessary,” Beacon said. “I’m not
convinced they realize the impact of
Though students are already taking
on more and more debt, that amount
could increase as costs rise at UNL.
UNL has raised tuition an average of
5.56 percent each year for the past five
years. The university faces possible
budget cuts again, which translates to
higher tuition. Student fees and some
lab fees also will increase next year.
NU Regent Chuck Hassebrook of
Walthill recently studied the costs of
tuition and fees as a percentage of the
state’s average annual income. Among
Big Eight schools, UNL ranked sec
ond-highest, with costs totaling 10.84
percent of wages. Missouri was most
costly at 14.02 percent.
David Lash also started at UNL in
the fall of 1991, studying to become
At first his parents paid his way,
but that stopped and federal aid was
limited after his sophomore year.
Lash, in one of the most demand
ing programs on campus, was advised
by the college to not get a job. When
he tried, the burden was too much.
In fall 1994, Lash withdrew from
all classes at UNL. He is $9,000 in
debt and works full-time. He plans to
enroll at an architecture college in
Minneapolis. When out of school, Lash
expects to be indebted to the federal
government for $40,000.
The idea that he has taken on more .
debt is absurd, he said.
