Entertainment provides education Enlightenment University Center Pro- grams is a group of commit- tees run by students with as- sistance from advisers. " Stu- dents programming for stu- dents " is its slogan. " Our purpose is to bring the best possible events to cam- pus not only for entertainment but also for education, " said Mary Donahue, one of UC Programs " advisers. " It also affords students the opportu- nity to learn personal skills in working with these events. " Consisting of nine commit- tees, UC Programs offered en- tertaining but learning experi- ences. The fine arts commit- tee brought in cultural perform- ances such as the Vienna Choir Boys and the Broadway production of " Dracula. " The films committee offered cur- rent feature films on Fridays and Saturdays, classic cinematic films on Wednes- days, and foreign and thema- tic films and midnight movies. The concerts committee brought such celebrities to campus as Robert Klein and the Houston Comedy Club. The ideas and issues commit- tee featured speakers, forums and lecturers such as former presidential candidate John Anderson. The recreation and travel committee offers recreational activities not offered at the Student Recreation Center. For example, students can take country and western dancing lessons. The commit- tee also gave travel counseling and sponsored a travel photo contest. The cultural exchange com- mittee is an international pro- gram designed to expand stu- dents " horizons and integrate cultures. Early in the fall se- mester, the committee spon- sored a party complete with music and dance from various countries. The International Sampler, also sponsored by the cultural exchange committee, allowed the international student orga- nizations on campus to set up booths with samples of their native food and provide enter- tainment representing their ethnic backgrounds. The com- mittee also co-sponsored the Winter Wonderland Crafts Fair with the fine arts commit- tee. UC Programs ' other com- mittees dealt more with the media, allowing students par- ticipating to gain a greater knowledge of mass com- munications while providing a service for the campus. The " ETC . . . ' " committee pub- lished the bi-weekly " ETC . . . ' ' magazine , which summarized UC events and entertainment. Another committee was the Video Technological Network (VTN), which sponsored video programs shown in the UC " s lobby and also produced its own videos. The public relations com- mittee worked to better in- form the campus of opportuni- ties offered by UC Programs. — Annette Bousquet Head football coach Jerry Moore 5 talks to Tech students in the Universi- -g ty Center about the upcoming Texas ' game. 5 162 — University Center Programs
