Campus Corner By LINDA CI.ELLANI) Lcthbridge Community College All's well cm the LCC front, at least at the moment. Re- cently we concluded our annual Chinook Winter Carnival, winch' didn't turn out as well as planned because of the Chinook which cancelled the ice sculpturing contest. Otter indoor events were well attended though. The finale came with the crowning of the Queen, Debbie Chase, a first year nursing student. This weekend, Debbie 13 representing the college in Grande Prairie at their fifth an- nual College Weekend. The students of laic have become upset with what they claim is Ihe high cost and low quality of food served at the Food Services. They joined together and planned a boycott for Wednesday of carnival week. The boycott was later postponed when a representative of the Board of Governors assured the students that appropri- ate action would be taken. Student? have started planning for this summer. Many are looking lor jobs, while others are applying for Opportuni- ties for Youth grants from the federal government. They reali7e that the job situation will be tough and they want to be prepared. The college Is often confused with the image of the uni- versity. But we have a separate identity. The university unlil this year rented most of their facilities from the college. At that time it was very difficult to separate the two in- stitutions, hut identity should become much easier since the university has moved across the river. The colleges' programs are geared more for a vocational type of training. The provincial government is now running its Priority Employment Program, cvromoiuy called PEP, which is de- signed to lake people from the ranks of the unemployed and give them a small allowance while retraining them. These persons make up almost half Ihe population of the college. Whether the program will be a successful or not nobody can predict. It will depend upon the students' perseverance. PEP has done some good already though, it has taken some people off Ihe unemployment or welfare line and has given them some respect, as well as helping them to improve their situation. PEP has also Improved the government's Image, which is nice since there is an election coming up. For those who may be planning to attend the college in future you may find that your activity fee has been increased by SIC. Thii income is to go into a building fund wliich during Hie past three years has only received per person. This increase would also bring the activity fee charged in line with those of other colleges. The proposal for the increase will go before the Board of Governors on March 8. While on the topic of buildings, tba college has accumu- lated unexpended funds of over the past while, which they hope lo put toward tlw purchase of land surrounding the college. This will enable tile college room to expand at some future date. Coining up al the college is the student council election which will be held at the end of March.
