Freshman Learning Community members — from left,
Becky Rodger, Megan Wigert and Shelly Lamberty —
hang out in a Schramm Residence Hall room Wednesday
evening. The Freshman Learning Community, a new
program started by the Division of General Studies last
fall, aims to help freshmen adjust to UNL.

“The students see each other in the
residence halls, in the dining hall
and in classes.”
Nutter said having some classes
in common with other students in
the program helped him succeed.
Although he is still undeclared,
he said he’s now leaning toward an
“It helped toward the prerequi
sites to get into the college,” Nutter
And the friendships he formed
“I know everyone on my floor,
and we all hang out,” he said.
Shelly Lamberty and Megan
Wigert both had classes with Nutter,
and they sometimes studied to
gether, he said.
“It made me more familiar with
campus,” Lamberty said. “Taking
classes together helped me get to
know more people.”
But studying isn’t the only part
of the program.
Wigert said living on the same
floor allowed time for fun.
“It’s really relaxed,” she said.
“Nothing’s forced, and you get to
make a lot of friends.”
Gregory said the program
stressed making friends in other
areas of campus by involving fresh
men in student organizations.
Students are given a student in
volvement form to fill out and are
asked to list the top three organiza
tions they want to be active in, he
And that’s Wigert’s favorite part
of the program.
“In our University Foundations
class, they brought in speakers and
student organizations,” she said.
“That way, it’s easier for freshmen
who may be having a hard time.”
Gregory said that overall, the
program had been a success and
would continue next year.
The students were surveyed ;
about the program’s usefulness, he r
said, and most freshmen gave posi
tive reviews. 1
Nutter said he thought the pro- \
gram was successful, and UNL
should promote it for incoming

dor took advantage of us and billed us
considerably more,” Bode said.
Departments have used the Quick
Order/Quick Pay system for six years,
Bode said, and he couldn’t remember
when the problem occurred.
Purchases from $500 to $1,000
must be handled directly through the
purchasing department, he said. Any
purchase for more than $ 1,000 goes
through a formal bidding and buying
The department double-checks the
returned order form to ensure that it
wasn’t taken advantage of.
“When the check clears, we know
exactly what the exact amount was,”
The purchasing program has been
self-checked to guarantee that it works
efficiently, he said.
“This way, the departments have
the capability to buy without contact
ing purchasing,” Bode said. “It’s a
matter of being fast, friendly and con

“Who ultimately will make the de

Then the child is dealing once
again with parents who can’t get along
and are struggling for power, he said.
Other arguments against the bill
• Children may fantasize about
parents reuniting because they are in
constant interaction (planning sched

• In each parent’s house, children

In a related bill, the committee re
viewed wage garnishment laws for
non-custodial parents paying child
The standing law forces some par

cause they are paid weekly or bi
weekly instead of monthly, even when
in compliance with the law.
LB 1052 states that parents paying f
child support by having money auto- /

checks would not be subject to pen- I

checks caused late payment. "
Some people have encountered
problems with payments and pay
checks coming at differing times.
