hen graduation day arrives, students will find that one important piece of information is
W absent from the diploma they've worked years to get-their major.
ECU diplomas are awarded to students according to their degrees (such as a bache-
lor of science or bachelor of art), not by their major area of study.
"After it was checked into, we found that 75 percent of all colleges and universities
in the United States do not print specific majors on diplomassaid Dr. Jim Smith, exec-
utive assistant to the Chancellor.
"When I was Department Chairman, I called down to the Registrar to ask him that
very same question in 1976 Smith said. "The answer and the reason for it is still the
same as it was then. I do know that this is a very old and pressing issue. If enough interest was
demonstrated, change might be made
Degrees must be approved by Chancellor Eakin, the Board of Governors and the state.
"When we print a diploma we are announcing to the world the degree that you have received,
not the major said Chancellor Eakin.
"Majors have not been printed during my
tenor here. I am not sure about before that"
Though opinions vary, ECU officials
agree that a student's college transcript is
more important than the diploma.
"This issue comes up every four or five
years said Gilbert Moore of the registrar
office. "The diploma does not show the
major, it is only a piece of paper. A diploma
reflects the degree that a student earned, not
the accomplishments they made. That's the
way it has always been. A transcripts reflects
exactly what the student has done and
"Employers do not usually mind if the
major is or is not on the diploma. They are
mainly interested in the transcript said Roy
Carroll, senior vice president for Academic
Affairs at UNC-Chapel Hill. "Anyone can
buy or print a diploma, the transcript is the
official document of a graduate
Angela Anderson of the registrar office
"The diploma is decorative, while the
transcript is official. It shows your minor,
grades, classes and all of your accomplish-
ments she said.
"I know that Penn. State used to print
majors on their diplomas. I am not sure about
the North Carolina universities Smith said.
"I could not agree more that is should defi-
nitely be on the diplomas. It is important"
Connie Blake, of the Office of Enrollment
Verification, said, "I know that UNC-Chapel
Hill tried to get the names of specific majors
printed on their diplomas, but too much con-
fusion was caused. I do not think they will try
it again
Carroll explained that academic majors
were printed on their diplomas last spring.
However, so much time was involved in the
process that some diplomas are still not ready.
"Some institutions do print majors and
some do not. About as many do that do not
Even the prestigious institutions do not
always print the majors on their diplomas
Carroll said. "Many North Carolina universi-
ties do not do it simply because it is a pain in
the neck
He added that many technical difficulties
are encountered when placing majors on
diplomas, such as students who are double
majors. Usually there is not enough space to
fit both majors on a diploma. Since more
space would be needed, bigger diplomas
would have to be ordered. This would end
up costing hundreds of dollars.
Also, a student might fall behind in the
studies and may not be able to complete their
Students' opinions varied on the issue.

ECU's defense shut down the
Duke offense in the second half,
leading to the 27-9 victory in
ECU's 1999 home opener.
The Pirates held the Blue
Devils to three Sims Lenhardt
field goals in the first half and no
points in the second.
"East Carolina's defense hurt
us today said Duke head coach
Carl Franks. "We will not win if we

and eventually had to leave the
game in the fourth quarter with an
injured shoulder.

never saw the young man finish a

The Pirate offense stepped up
in the second half. Duke's vaunted
front seven held ECU to 15 yards
rushing in the first half.
'They were good, they were
big said Jamie Wilson, ECU run-
ning back. "Their linebackers
were fast. They came out and con-
centrated on stopping us in the
first half, and that's exacdy what
they did. We broke off a couple big
runs, but they were in there
After halftime, ECU gained 178
yards on the ground. Wilson ended
the game with 77 yards rushing
and the Pirates ended with 193
total yards on the ground.
To start the game, the team's
traded turnovers. Romine threw
an Interception to Forrest Foster
and a Marcellus Harris fumble
gave the ball back to Duke. A Sims
Lenhardt field goal with 4:09
remaining in the first quarter put
Duke on top 3-0.

If you want a guaranteed spot in medical school, ECU is the school to
attend. As an entering freshman, you can earn your spot in graduate pro-
grams with your SAT score, GPA and extracurricular activities. We at TEC
think this may be a misguided attempt on the part of the ECU administra-
tion to lure more academically gifted freshman into ECU to boost the over-
all GPA.
If a normal student wanted to enter any other medical school, he or she
would have to earn an excellent and seemingly unattainable GPA, not to
mention a great deal of extracurricular achievements and a good MCATS
score. Recently, Administration has decided to change the requirements.
They are no longer the same for all students. Now, those who are part of the
special freshman program are guaranteed a spot if they fulfill these require-
ments. Anyone else has to go above and beyond to compete for the spots
that are left over.
One would think a future doctor should be pushed to excel in all things. If
they can't make the cut in college by their own merit and the hard work and
perseverance of their first four years against competition from anyone, why
do they think that they can live through medical school, much less their res-
idency? Doctors do sensitive work, and even the smallest lack of dedication
may cause a mistake.
This move may improve the academic caliber of students in undergraduate
school, but what about graduate school? If some students do not have to
make it through the same rigorous challenges as the rest, will they have the
same passion and need to succeed? That may be just a speculation, but peo-
ple always work harder in a position that they earn rather than one that they
were given.
There is no doubt that this move will benefit the GPA of ECU's under-
graduate school and bring more academically gifted students to ECU, but
beyond that, what does this mean for the future of the medical profession?
If more medical schools do this, is the intense competition for a spot in a
good school going to disappear? Are future doctors going to lie overachiev-
ers in high school and then simply maintain their status through college?
Will the best of the best become those who can afford to go to a college with
a medical school? In every decision, both the positive and the negative
should be considered. Maybe this program of medical school acceptance
will be integrated into medical schools nation-wide, but will the general
public benefit? Maybe this view is from a slightly paranoid perspective, but
we cannot afford to cut back the standards of those who are to enter the
medical profession. Only the best should triumph; mediocrity is not accept-
ed here.
Stadium alcohol rules hard to enforce
The problem is that hiding
people out of a game at this
school serves absolutely no
purpose and is definitely by no
means a deterrent for it hap-
pening in the future.
It is no secret that a football
game at East Carolina University is
very chaotic. The tailgates, the stu-
dents, the fans, and the town of
Greenville in general all contribute
to the atmosphere that makes this
school and its football season
famous�despite how famously the
team actually performs.
It is very interesting, however,
that there is a whole show that
takes place, and sometimes prece-
dent, over the actual game itself.
This lastly growing phenomenon is

hol It is not unique only to ECU,
but it occurs in droves throughout
the entire game�from kickoff
until the end of the fourth quarter.
The problem is that kick-
ing people out of a game at this
school serves absolutely no purpose
and is definitely by no means a
deterrent for it happening in the
First of all, the whole process of
the police coming up the stairs,
pointing out the poor person, grab-
bing them out of their seats, and
escorting them out, is such a dis-
traction that those who are watch-
ing the game are the ones really
Second, the large cost that is
incurred to rent the cops, monitor,
and police the premises is not pro-
portionate to what all of that activi-
ty accomplishes.
Thirdly, and most importantly,
getting thrown out of a game now is
a joke, mainly because there is no
negative reinforcement once the
person is caught. Honestly, the con-
sensus is that someone getting
thrown out is amusing to watch.
During the last game, a student,
who prefers to remain anonymous,
was spotted with airplane bottles in
his pocket. (How the police saw
that is remarkable, but rather
eerie). In true ECU fashion, a large
group of police run up the stadium
and make a huge scene. The stu-
dent, readily admitted his guilt, and
then led the whole seating section
to cheer for him. I bet he'll never
carry alcohol into a game again,
right? That's the whole point. ECU
is not preventing or deterring the
behavior they deem so heinous. In
fact, it probably encourages the

Kids need time to be kids
Kids are getting smarter and
smarter and not experiencing
an actual childhood, so they'd
rather stay inside on the
Internet and play fantasy foot-
ball instead of the real thing.
Well, here we are again. It's a beau-
tiful Sunday afternoon in mid
September, not a cloud tarnishes
the sky. Our ECU football team has
just beaten the snot out of those
preppie people, and the overall
mood surrounding me is just pure
unadulterated relaxation. The
breeze makes one reminisce of the
summer days, drifting away (oh-oh)
to those sum-mer-er nights.
Some people may think this is
childish, but I really do miss the
summertime. Not that I actually
"miss" it as in "hibernate through
it but as in the feeling that I used
to have when I was younger.
Remember that feeling? That
whole "I am going to the pool
everyday for eleven hours and
there isn't anything you can do
about it" feeling? You didn't have a
job or anything like that to hold you
down, unless you had a father like
mine who liked to periodically give
out little random chores like "clean
the garage, give the dog a bath,
help me kill this snake etc.
I have worked at a summer
camp for the past couple of years,
and I'm here to tell you that kids
today have no idea how to spend a
summer. It's like they're not even
kids at all.
I worked with the fourth and
fifth graders, but they all acted like
they were in the working world
with degrees in not peeing their
pants. Just imagine a fwtrth grader
using the word "illogical" in com-
mon conversations. Grtnted, they
used it in reference to Pokemon,
but just the fact that they talk that
way bothers me.
Now some people might see this
whole "children learning to do long
division while technically still in
the womb" idea as progress, but I
see it as, urn, congress. Kids are get-
ting smarter and smarter and not
experiencing an actual childhood,
so they'd rather stay inside on the
Internet and play fantasy football
instead of the real thing. And the
parents just push them because
they want their kid to be knowl-
edgeable about computers so that
they will be prepared for the tech-
nology-driven future.
But what happens with that is'
that the kids, instead of becoming
well-respected members of society
become bug-eyed hackers with the
people skills of a rabid wombat in a
So this is a message for parents,
or would-be parents. Tell your kid
no, FORCE your kid to go out-
side and play. If it's the difference
between him growing up to be
president maybe that's not a
great example. More like the dif-
ference between growing up to be a
teacher and growing up to be "Sir

Judicial by-pass offers help for teens
The answer to the almighty
abortion question is this: it is
your choice what to do.
Clearly, if a girl has been
raped she should be allowed to
have one at any age, but what
about the girls that have con-
sen tual sex and get pregnant?
What if the girl is underage
This is where it gets touchy.
It happens to people on contracep-
tives and to people having sex for
the first time. Even if you think
that because you're extra-careful it
won't happen to you it can.
Pregnancy can be a beautiful
tiling that happens to the right cou-
ple at the right time, but this is not
always the case.
The questions of the appropri-
ateness of the couple and timeli-
ness must be addressed. Many
people have been dating since high
school or even before then. It is not
uncommon to have premarital sex
these days for pleasure; not for the
usual baby-making purpose it has
been reserved for during the past
million years. With this practice
there are consequences. What will
you do if it happens to you?
This is a very tough question.
Recently, I had a friend go through
this ordeal. They had been going
together for a while and they were
having sex. As soon as they began
to have intercourse they went to
the doctor to get birth control.
While they were waiting for the
appointment day, they had inter-
course using a condom. This was
their usual practice and they
thought they had taken precautions
and were in control.
When it came time to actually
get the pills and go on them, they
waited for the period that never
came. The young lady was 16-
years-old and pregnant. While they
had talked about what to do before
they ever started doing anything,
they never thought they would be
seriously confronted with the situa-
The answer to the almighty
abortion question is this: it is your
choice what to do. Clearly, if a girl
has been raped she should be
allowed to have one at any age, but
what about the girls that have con-
sentual sex and get pregnant? What
if the girl is underage? This is
where it gets touchy.
Given the situation above, what
is right? The couple had a choice
about what to do and they chose
the option I think is right and
would have chosen. They got the
abortion with some help that is lit-
tie known�the judicial by-pass.
This tool allows any girl who is
underage to get the right for an
abortion. Her parents will not
know, her friends won't know, only
the couple involved will. You can
go to the court house and get the by
pass, and for a $210 student rate,
get an abortion. This is an invalu-
able tool, but it needs to be used
with some sense.
If you are serious about the
other person and have monoga-
mous safe sex with them, then you
should be allowed at any age to ter-
minate an unwanted pregnancy.
Some say that you shouldn't be
having sex if you don't want a kid,
but that should be an informed,
individual, decision.
Before 12 weeks, the fetus has
not developed significantly. At nine
weeks, it is only a gram in weight i
and a inch in length. By no means is
this the equivalent of killing a fully-
developed baby. The placenta
doesn't even take over hormone
production until the 12th to 13th
week. So don't feel like a murderer
if you get the abortion early on,
which is recommended. If ever �
confronted with this situation know
the facts and your rights.

The Buzz on
Beer is believed to be over
10.000 years old. Some agricultur-
' al historians believe the first beer
may have been produced acciden-
tally when a stash of grain was
soaked by rain and then warmed by
the sun.
There are over 70 styles of beer
available today, each with its own
unique characteristics from its
ingredients and subtle differences
in its brewing process.
In 1995. 880 breweries pro-
duced more than 200 million bar-
rels of beer; on the average, each
adult American consumed nearly
121 liters (32 gallons) of beer in
the United States.
There are four basic ingredients
used when brewing beer: grain,
hops, yeast and water.
Grain contains natural sugars
required for fermentation. It pro-
vides the beer its flavor, color, body
and texture.
Hops are
green cone-
shaped flowers
found on the
hop plant, a
vine related to
the nettle plant.
Hops provide a
spicy, bitter fla-
vor and con-
tribute natural
substances that
prevent bacteria
from spoiling
the beer.
There are two types of yeast
used to make beer: Saccharomyces
cervisiae and Saccharomyces
uvarum (both also known as brew-
er's yeast). Each form of yeast is
used in a different method of fer-
mentation and makes a distinct
type of beer.
Water constitutes as much as
95 percent of the ingredients. The
mineral content in the water influ-
ences the quality and flavor of the

woman donates kidney
erous act by a woman who donated
her kidney to a stranger is unlikely
to start a trend that would make a
large dent in the long waiting list
for kidney transplants, experts say.
But the transplant, one of the
few reported procedures in which
neither donor nor recipient knew
each other, is part of the growth of
"unrelated transplantation which
until,a few years ago was almost
unheard of.
An unidentified 50-ycar-old
woman donated a kidney to a
stranger at I'airview-l'niversity
Medical Center at the I 'nivcrsiry of
Minnesota last month. The hospi-
tal announced the procedure
Thursday, after the patients were
The woman who donated the
kidney had a long history of "altru-
istic behaviors said Cheryl Jacobs,
a clinical social worker who
screened the donor. She did it sim-
ply because she knew there was a
long waiting list for donor organs,
said Dr. Arthur Matas, who led the
transplant team.
"I living, unrelated transplanta-
tion is growing in the I'nitcd
States said Dr. William Dennett,
president of the American Society
of Nephrology. "It was always felt
hefyre, why use a living patient
when you could use a cadaver
donor? Hut it turns out the fact that
the.donor is living confers some
In fact, some argue it could be-
easier for someone to donate an
organ if the donor is not pressured
into the procedure because of fam-
ily ties.
"Family members may not be
all that close, but because they are
relatives, the donor might feel an
underlying obligation to do so
Jacobs said.
Matas said the 407 people on
the kidney transplant waiting list
now have to wait between three
anil five years for a new organ. Two
decades ago, the wait was only
about a year.
I'or that reason, doctors have
been discussing the ethical issues
surrounding unrelated transplants
for years. In 1W8, there were
11,990 kidney transplants per-
formed in the I'nitcd States. Just
over 4,(HH) came from living donors,
and of those. M were unrelated to
the recipients, according to the
I nited Network on Organ Sharing.
I'NOS doesn't keep data on
how many of those came from
strangers, said spokesman Hob
Spieldenner. Matas said he has
only heard of one other such proce-
Kvcn if the latest procedure
doesn't start a wave of stranger-to-
stranger donations, Jeffrey Kahn.

The hospital is approached
about a half-doen times a month
by people asking if they can donate
kidneys, but until recently, there
was no system to screen the callers,
identify their true motives and put
their kidney into a pool for recipi-
"Actually, it was these anony-
mous donors who forced us to
address this issue. They were very
committed to working with us
Jacobs said.
"Insurers likely would not stand
in the way of strangcr-to-strangcr
donations, because kidney dona-
tion is not considered elective

Shield of Minnesota, who abut said

Hut don't look for public service
announcements asking people to
stop by the local kidney bank after
donating blood, doctors said.
"I wonlil suspect at the very
minimum it would make people
think, and perhaps generate some
additional calls Matas said.
And even if the number of
stranger-to-stranger donations
doesn't increase much, each kid-
ney donation helps.

On the game-winning play, Troy
Aikman faked a hand off while
Ismail sprinted from the right slot
down the center of the field. With
the safeties off balance, Ismail easi-

wide open for Aikman's fifth touch-

Washington had a chance to win
the game on the last play of regula-
tion, but holder Matt Turk fumbled
the snap on what would have been
a 41-yard field-goal attempt by
Hrett (!nnw ay.
The loss hit the Redskins hard.
They collapsed in last year's sea-

the New York (liants and then
lost their next six in a row. They
had hoped to put that
behind them while impressing

but did not play. With Sanders,
Kevin Smith (back), Leon Lett

had no problems moving the ball

The Redskins were in (lowboys

Hrad Johnson both lost fumbles

Johnson marked his Redskins

On their first two possessions,
the Cowboys marched HO and HI
yards for 14 points against a first-
string defense that didn't allow a
touchdown in preseason.
Aikman was as precise as ever,
completing (-of-9 with two drops,
including scoring passes of IS and
14 yards to'leur.
Aikman spent the next two
quarters hurried by the Redskins'

were down .VS-14 before they

Grand Slam finals in the same year.
No man had fought back to win

bore down on Martin's serve early
in the fourth set and broke him to
change the tenor of the match.
On one point in that game,
Agassi almost knocked Martin out,
literally, slamming an overhead
from point blank range that missed
Martin's skull by inches.
"I was going to make sure I was
under the net by the time he hit

racket was still up there. I think he
dill go for me, but if he had been
more accurate. I think I would
have hit a winner
Martin never recovered.
Though he ran his ace total to IS�
Id more than Agassi�he
never could find a way to break
Agassi's serve. When Agassi's
return clipped the
net cord and handcuffed Martin
to break him again at the end of
the fourth set, the outcome
seemed certain.
Agassi didn't recall any five-set-
ter in which he held his serve
throughout. Hut Martin, who will
move up to No. 4 in the rankings,
knew it was more than Agassi's
serve that beat him.
"More than anything else
Martin said, "I thought it was just
the relentless pressure that he put
on me. not just with his serve, not
just with his feet, not just with his
returns, but every game, he
seemed to be there
Agassi made it five games in a
row when he won the first three in
the final set, and he closed out the
match by breaking Martin one
more time.
"I'll tell you what, how can you
ask for anything more than two
Americans in the final of the lS.
Open playing a great five-set
match?" Agassi told the crowd
after accepting the trophy and the
winner's check for $750,(100. "Win

my life. I'll never forget New York

Martin was so drained he needed

with euphoria, and one finished
with pleasure in the moment, just

ECU commuter students are master jugglers. They handle class schedules, work schedules and trans-
portation plans with ease. Toss in obligations to family and friends and commuters don't even break a
sweat. But how can they master the skill of adding campus involvement to the mix?
Successful students who become highly sought after employees intertwine academic studies with
other campus experiences. Finding one's "niche" in campus life is key to personal growth and allows
one to get the most out of the college experience.
Commuters who have found their "niche" while juggling life's other
responsibilities share this advice.
Get more involved in your academic department. Meet faculty.
Organize study groups. Build a support network of fellow students,
faculty and staff.
Find an on-campus job.
Join a student organization.
Develop a new interest by attending performance art programs,
musical recitals or theatre productions.
Take care of yourself. Meet with staff in Student Recreation
Services, Health Promotion, Campus Dining Services or Student
Health Services.
Take initiative. Don't assume that your busy schedule will keep
you from being involved. Meet with others to discuss your special
circumstances and ways you can contribute.
Volunteer between classes.
Be a Pirate fan. Pick an ECU team to support and attend games,
meets and matches when you can. Don't forget to wear your purple
and gold.
Can commuters juggle one more thing, you may ask? Maybe, maybe
not. But when they've already learned to toss around three flaming
bowling pins, what's one more? Especially when it might put them in
the center ring.
If you are a commuter looking for a way to get involved in campus life call Adult and Commuter
Student Services at 6881 or Student Leadership Programs at 47.
As campus life runs along each day, photographers will be
out and about to capture us, the students, at our best. If
you can identify yourself in any of our pictures, present
yourself to MSC 109 (Student Leadership) and point "you"
out to the staff there. Rewards will be on hand for your
efforts, so keep a close eye on these pictures!
Can you believe it? Only two weeks in our new house and our electricity went out in three rooms. We
had no lights or power in the kitchen, living room or front hallway. After messing with the fuse box for
awhile my roommates and I didn't really know what to do. When we lived in Belk Hall last year we just
called the Maintenance Hotline or our RA and someone came over to help us.
We dug through our papers and found our landlord's phone number. We called and told him the prob-
lem and how we were without lights and that our food was rotting. Two days later he still hadn't come.
It was so frustrating.
Luckily my roommate Josephine found this booklet we got at Get-A-Clue called "A Place of Your Own:
A Guide for Off-Campus Living We found out that we needed to call the Greenville Human Relations
office (329-4494). They were so helpful. They contacted our landlord and things were fixed right
The Human Relations staff also told us some other things about living in a rental property. They said
that we should call the landlord right away and also provide a written request to him about our mainte-
nance problem. If our repairs weren't taken care of we could call the Human Relations office or the city
inspection department. In really bad situations we could call the attorney general's office or go to small
claims court. There is an entire state law that addresses our rights as tenants and the responsibility of
landlords. Plus there are people who can help us with landlord problems. The Student Government
Association even provides a free service for students to discuss problems with an attorney.
Well, I'm not too happy that we had to throw out all of our food, but I am glad I got to learn about my
rights as a tenant. Things seem to be working fine now and our days ahead will be much brighter!

� Complete a check list about the condition of your property as soon as possible. DoTfUow if you

� You should receive your security deposit within 30 days after your lease ends. If you do not receive
the entire amount you can request written notification from the landlord as to why you were charged.

Dear Diary,

Well, I still miss home. I thought this feeling was supposed to go away after the first day. Maybe I'm dif-
fcrcntmaybe I'm weird. I don't like this place, I haven't met all these new friends that my parents said
I would and I hate eating alone in the cafeteria. I miss my parents, my life back home, and yeseven my
little brother. I want to go home. I want to go home so bad sometimes that I can't concentrate on home-
work at night. I'm alone. I can't even sleepevery time I close my eyes I see home. I don't know what to
Dear Diary,
My RA came up to me today and asked me how I was feeling. She recommended I go talk to
the people at the Counseling Center. She was really nice about the whole thing - she did not make me
feel like I was weird.
Dear Diary,
I went to the Center for Counseling and Student Development and they helped me work
through my troubles. They suggested that I might want to check out the Recreational Center, the
Leadership office, and get involved on campus. I made some friends today. I feel great!

The East Carolinian, September 14, 1999
East Carolina's student-run campus newspaper was first published in 1923 as the East Carolina Teachers College News (1923-1925). It has been re-named as The Teco Echo (1925, 1926-1952), East Carolinian (1952-1969), Fountainhead (1969-1979), and The East Carolinian (1969, 1979-present). It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
