-cade games now is spent on home video game
systems such as Nintendo and Sega.
Tom Fowler, founder of TC Entertainment,
said home video game systems were not as much
of a consideration as a recent trend of decreased
arcade game playing.
“The social level is different,” Fowler said.
“Students used to hang out in arcades. Now they
just hang out in their dorm rooms.”
Thfr game rooms will still offer pool,
pingpong and other non-arcade games owned
by the university, but students may now have to
rent game equipment from the front desks of
the residence hails.
In addition, the game rooms would be left
Robert Kelley, a senior biology major living
at Abel, said that would be a bad idea.
“I know there’s a rule at Abel not to have
food or drink in die game room,” Kelley said.
“With no one there, there’s nothing stopping
someone from possibly messing up a table.”
Mark Dutiel, manager of the Harper snack
bar, said a better system might be to rent out
equipment for the games through the snack bar.
The social level is differ
ent. Students used to

Dutiel said this would eliminate the problems
of students having to walk out of their way in
winter weather to get rental equipment for a
game of pool.
“With our employees around, it would also
make sure there’s someone watching the game
room,” Dutiel said.
Dutiel is currently proposing the idea to Food
Service for the spring semester.

Scholarships and Financial Aid is offering
a seminar to help students budget , their
money and responsibly use credit cards.
The half-hour seminar will be Dec. 5 at
the Nebraska Union.
It will examine two main financial con
cerns of students: budgeting and die advan
tages and disadvantages of credit.
Marty Habrock, outreach specialist for
the Office of Scholarships and Financial
Aid, said the seminar was originally offered
to student groups by request.
But demand from off-campus students
and from students whose organizations did
not request the seminar has encouraged the
office to set up an open seminar for any stu
dents who wanted to attend, Habrock said.
“We hope to reach as many students as
possible,” he said.
The seminar will first focus on budget
Habrock said students will receive a
budget worksheet that will enable them to
more closely examine their expenditures,
resources ami savings.
“It sort of duals as a tracking sheet for
students who haven’t kept up with their

Habrock said this was important because
credit-card use typically increases during
the holiday season.

purchases, they’ll have paid a substantial
amount in interest — nearly double,”
