interviews, I was nervous," said
Daly. "But I told myself, let
Behrend take a shot with me."
She prepared for questions
aimed at determining her
competence and claimed later that

thought they'd be.

Upon returning from the
holidays, Daly plans to organize
her office for the next twelve
months. She is planning to
gather information for a multi

audio-visual tapes, which
students will be able to take out.

for students and it any student has
a problem or wants to talk, they
can call and make an
appointment. She is located in
the Counseling and Advising
office in the Reed Building.
Michael Ichiyama, Assistant

leaving Behrend at the end of the

The division of Humanities and
Social Sciences will begin a
national search for a replacement

Ichiyama was involved not
only with his classes, but also

for Behrend's Martial Arts Club
and also the faculty advisor for
Behrend's Billiard Club.
According to Salper, one of
