Hurtgen urges cut protest
UNL lagging in
student aid cuts
By Kasey Kerber
UNL has not done enough to fight
Congressional financial aid cuts,
ASUN President Shawntell Hurtgen
Wednesday night’s meeting at the
East Campus Union.
for student af
fairs, spoke to the
Students of the
University of Ne
braska about a bill
that would cut
nearly $ 10.8 billion from student aid.
“Three things will happen under
this bill,” Griesen said. “The first
will require students to begin paying
off their loans immediately follow
ing graduation, as opposed to the
current six-month grace period.
“The second involves the placing
of a .85 percent tax on student loans.
For us, this means we must now come
up with an additional $340,000.”
The final effect will be on direct
lending, Griesen said. The Univer
sity of Nebraska-Lincoln has recently
joined a program to make it easier for
students to borrow from leading in
stitutions or banks, he said. The bill
would put a 20 percent cap on direct
Griesen asked the student senate
for help to fight the proposal.
“This bill will be vote! on no later
than Oct. 10 and we have little time,”
he said. “We need more of a grass
roots effort at this point.”
Hurtgen pointed out the lack of
such an effort at UNL.
“I’ve had reporters from Wash
ington to the Journal Star calling to
find out why the University of Ne
braska is not. protesting this legisla
tion as much as other universities,”
Another topic of the meeting was
Senate Bill No. 10, which was sent
back to committee for revision at last
week’s meeting. The bill would rec

Before voting on the bill, a motion
was made to postpone the vote for
Plato Chan, a graduate senator,
said there were problems with one of
the organization ’sbylaws. Other sena
tors said the senate did not need to
look at bylaws to recognize an orga
nization; the bill was approved.
Also at the meeting, Hurtgen ad
dressed the senate’s attempts to im
“I met with the Admission and
Advising Committee and some of
our advising ideas were hit pretty
hard,” she said.
ASUN’s proposed changes were
in three areas: faculty advising train
ing, advising records and standard
ized drop forms for each college. But
the committee said it would take too
much effort and time to make these
changes, Hurtgen said.
“We might need to revise our ideas
before presenting them again for con
sideration,” she said.

Nelson said the streamlined sys

federal government’s drive to bal

must be prepared to handle finan
“It’s not a question of whether
we make changes,” Nelson said,
The Nebraska Partnership
Project will report back to the gov

project would introduce legisla

cooperation, she said, the changes
could go into effect by January
