SW - INGMG DEAN ENIMS BEMEND SCME
"Well, what can I tell the new students
that they haven't heard before--study hard a , -d
apply yourself. I know there's nothing orig
inal about it, but it's still the best advice
to give to any student."
The speaker was Dean Patricia Creveling,
who has joined the Behrend administrative staff
this year as Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.
A former Behrend student, Dean Creveling got
her Bachelor's degree in clinical psychology
from Penn State, and last year received her
Masters from Colorado University.
The effervescent new Dean is currently
workin on a project which will allow par
ticipants to better understand each other
and to see themselves as other individuals
see them--which is the goal set for these
strength groups, as they will be called.
"Often a person will only see himself
from a certain angle," explains the Dean.
"For example, if a person usually looks
at himself in a mirror from one certain
angle, he is surprised at what a picture
taken from another angle reveals. In the same
manner, we only see ourselves from the angle
of our own perception. Other people see us
differently, and in these groups, we find out
how these other people do see us, and it helps
to correct our faults and improve our person
"As for the actual meetings, I'd like
to start a group next month and all those
who are interested should sign up at the
office. We "11 meet one night a week for
a two hour talk."
How about Behrend?
IMarvy", an expression used constantly
by Dean Creveling. She cpntinued„"l think
Behrend is an excellint opportunity for
students to accustom themselves to the rigor
of college life without having to cope with
living away from home. Behrend offers the
welcome atmosphere, the friendliness of a
small college; yet it still has the resources
of Penn State."
Dean Creveling also points out that her
desire to major in psychology came from her
Psy 2 course with Mr. Fryer. "His classes
really interested me in the field of psy
chology and its numerous outlets."
"We're No. 1!" "We're No. 1!"
No, this isn't South Bend or Ann Arbor.
This was the assured feeling of each member
of the Behrend delegation after leaving the
OSGA Conference at University Park. The
delegation included Ron Bachelor, Bill Benko,
John Jackson, Gary Baran, Jim Bebko, Karen
Manuella, and Eilleen Bowden and Ron Fontecchio.
The reason for this feeling was that during
these conferences, the Behrend representatives,
in talking to the representatives from the other
commonwealth campuses, found out that the
Behrend SGA is unique.
This is the ideas behing our SGA's purpose
to serve as a student governing body, not as
a social functioning body. Our aim is to act
as a "clearing house" for other clubs and
organizations to put on social events,
if they - so desire. We have no specific
boundaries in respect to our juris
diction. We inspect each matter and
act until we find out how far we can delve
This provides for a strong, efficient
SGA and it has become strong pri
marily because of the farsightedness
of Dean lane, who allows us this
freedom, freedom to govern ourselves.
I'm very confused--could you please
explain what this Kelly's for Lunch
bunch is? It sounds ridiculous and not
very cool to say the least.
Don't knock it sister—you'll
spill my drink.
Dear Annie :
I met this beautiful girl named Pat.
She has short dark hair and luscious grey
eyes--not to mention her shape. Man--she
really gave me the shaft. How can Igo
about getting fixed up with her?
Why don't you go talk it over
with the assistant dean?
There are so many bcys on this
campus that it scares me. They're
lurking all over. What can Ido to
ease my apprehensions?
One good lurk deserves another.
Are we allowed to feed the wood
chucks on the ski slope?
Sure--but watch out for the squirrels.
All I've been doing since I arrived
at this campus is counting everything--
bricks, trees, ropes, water, sophomores.
I'm positive that I don't have an accurate
account of any of those things. Do you
suppose I could be exempt from any
questions that involve counting?
Don't count on it.
Confidential to Jaguar owners: Hiya Baby!!
DEAR AN IM
