Homecoming boosts school spirit
By Angie Schendt
As the lawn displays for home
coming go up, so does sehool spirit.
“It is up especially now because
we’re the defend

pions,” said Shari

major and chair
woman of the

“It brings people together,” Reimer
said. “They take time out of their busy
schedules to work on the projects.”

Rebecca Johnson, a freshman un
declared major, is on the Husker Howl
dance team for Sandoz Residence Hall.
She said she might go to the bonfire,
but she wished there were other activi
“It doesn’t seem like there’s a lot to
do other than that,” she said.
Johnson said she tried to get foot
ball tickets for Saturday’s game, but
the sellers wanted $140 per ticket.
“I feel like I’mmissingoulon some
thing because 1 don’t have football
tickets,” she said.
Freshman Joe Hurley, a construc
tion management major, said more
people should get involved in home
“It should include people other than
sororities and fraternities,” said
Hurley, a member of Sigma Nu.
But he said it might be hard for
people outside the grcek system to
know about homecoming because it
was not publicized enough.
Hurley was helping build the frame
of Sigma Nu’s float Tuesday after
noon, but he said he could not release
the secret of what it would be.
Sigma Nu started work on the float
Monday night. It has a budget of $200
for the display, Hurley said, and the
fraternity probably will spend all of it.
The lawn displays have to be com
pleted by noon Friday.
Hurley said the atmosphere of
homecoming made the week and game
different from others.
“It is building up to be the greatest
football game of the year so far for
Nebraska,” he said.

“We want to get student input on
this issue,” said ASUN President
Shawntell Hurtgen. “Wemightpossi

issue is going.”
ASUN also will discuss expanding
East Campus parking. Hurtgen met
with the Parking Advisory Committee
Tuesday afternoon and will discuss
the committee’s decision at the meet
Also to be discussed is advising.
Hurtgen will bring three proposals to
the Admissions and Advising Com
mittee on Oct. 25, and the committee
will vote on them at that time.
This is the second time Hurtgen *
has approached the committee; the
first visit prompted a revision of
ASUN’s original proposals.
“I will be proposing training or
publication to all members of the fac
ulty, documentation for advisers to
sign stating what advice they gave and
a universal, simplistic waiver form for
all colleges,” Hurtgen said.
ASUN also will continue with its
protest efforts against student loan
“We arc beginning to run out of
time,” Hurtgen said.
“We’re recommending that students
make phone calls. We have all the
numbers of Congressmen in both
houses, and students can contact us at
the ASUN office to obtain them.”

much,” Cervantes-Salomons said.
“We have to work harder at getting
them down here,” she said.
Kauffman said the men the NHRI
program did attract were wonderful
and made excellent role models.
“They’re really into relationship
building,” she said.
Gino Venegas, a senior psychology
major, volunteers for the Lincoln Ac

program because his career would be
working with adolescent youth.
“I want to make a difference in a
young person’s life,” he said.
Venegas was able to get a male
friend of his to join the program but
said he did not know why the programs
He encouraged other men to join a

Venegas said adolescence was a
difficult time for both boys and girls,
and it was important to give them posi

gangs and drugs here in Lincoln, they
need as much help as they can get,” he
said. “And everyone can help.”
