Vol. 1 N
to Meade Heights
This Fall, an age old request
of married students attending
the Capitol Campus was
honored. Meade Heights housing
at last became available to them.
Traditionally, married students
have had a very difficult time
finding housing in the Harrisburg
area because of a shortage of
these facilities, (particularly
after the June ‘72 Flood) and
because of high rents. Some
students, unable to find housing
were forced either not to come
to the Campus, or to withdraw
from school later, as it was
difficult to pay for
accomodations in their home
towns as well as rent for “single”
housing in on-Campus facilities.
The availability of Meade
Heights housing to married
students was not brought about
to place single residents here at a
disadvantage. It was the
outcome of deliberation over
cold economic fact. The
enrollment projection was down
last Spring, and with the
estimate of returning and new
on-Campus residents came the
possibility that 35-40 houses in
Meade Heights would stand
empty. The University could not
have afforded the cut in revenue
and have maintained the
facilities and services which it
now provides. Hence the
decision to make the houses
available to married couples
Couples residing in Meade
Heights have signed a year’s lease
and pay monthly rent for their
houses. A decision on whether
or not the spaces will be needed
for next Fall’s incoming
students will have to wait until
next Spring’s enrollment
projections for the coming year
are in. If it is found that requests
for housing by single students
will increase appreciably over
this Fall’s, then the program of
“married housing” in Meade
Heights will be re-evaluated and
a decisioh made to continue it or
A campus community offers
the unique atmosphere
conducive to learning while we
live. Those who are potential
“Marrieds” and parents can learn
much from this new
arrangement. This article is being
published to answer some of the
many questions regarding this
arrangement, and in a spirit of
providing some ’inderstanding of
it as well. Any further questions
should be directed to the

Well, they did it! They finally
came up with a brainstorm to
make registration as painless as
possible. The secret - staggered
location. The students had a
little further to walk than usual
but it seemed to keep traffic
from getting too congested. The
advisors were readily available in
their respective offices which
was a second advantage. For this
year’s fall registration, the paper

The C.C. Reader sees one
major area for complaint. It
seems that nothing can be
accomplished between the hour
of 12 - 1. We realize that the
secretaries do deserve lunch but
we feel that a staggered lunch
system would be better. The
final time for registration in the
morning was 11:44. When the
student left his advisor, he found
that the doors to the final check
point were locked. He

very fast and efficient. With
little change, it could be
effectively used for many
