Cover Story<br />

For LHU senior Tim Burdick,<br />

writing has given him the<br />

opportunity to express<br />

himself and his inner-most<br />

feelings After two international<br />

experiences, he began<br />

to open his heart through his<br />

pen This edition of<br />

Perspective focuses on<br />

several individuals wh o<br />

either have developed<br />

careers from self exp ressi on<br />

or who want to help others<br />

learn to put forth their true<br />

feelings Several of these<br />

individuals spend their lives working toward their passions and have chosen<br />

to step out of the realm of traditional occupations Tim hopes that graduate<br />

school will catapult him onto a career in teaching in which he can continue<br />

to grow in his own writing and help other students understand the value of<br />

self expression<br />

Education faculty sets Clinton County<br />

technology record<br />

Dr Gerald Cierpilowski, LHU chair,<br />

department of elementary and secondary<br />

education, offered a peak<br />

at the classroom of the future as<br />

he became the first teacher in<br />

Clinton County to teach a class in<br />

another state via the Internet.<br />

Cierpilowskl established a connection<br />

with Battleground Middle<br />

School in Battleground, IN, and<br />

together with his wife's aunt,<br />

Caroline Sadeak, a holocaust survivor,<br />

taught severa l middle school classes about the events surrounding her<br />

Journey from a small farming village on the border of Poland to a work camp<br />

in Siberia. The students had read the book, The Endless Steppe: Growing<br />

Up in Siberia by Esther Rudomin Hautzig, and compared and contrasted the<br />

author's experience with that of Mrs. Sadeak's life Chatting in "real time, "<br />

students asked questions through the computer keyboard which were directly<br />

sent to the screen in front of Dr. Cierpilowski and Mrs Sadeak. They in turn<br />

responded immediately to the students' questions, many of which focu sed on<br />

concern for family, possessions, safety, work and treatment. All students had<br />

a terminal from which they viewed the conversation, and questions were<br />

typed on the teacher's keyboard The class was part of Purdue <strong>University</strong>'s<br />

research project documenting survivors of the holocaust Purdue <strong>University</strong><br />

also provided the technological support to the Indiana Middle School.

<strong>Spring</strong> <strong>1995</strong><br />

College days have traditionally been times for young adults to express<br />

their feelings and their viewpoints in various ways. Through.out the<br />

decades, the university has remained an outlet for developing self<br />

expression. This issue of Perspective focuses on a form of expression ­<br />

the outward showing of creativity.<br />

We begin with a story on the nurturing of creativity in young<br />

children through the use of science. LHU early childhood education<br />

students are trained in techniques which enhance a child's ability to<br />

creatively reason and solve problems. The magazine continues as we<br />

look at some of the many expressions of creativity by faculty and<br />

students at LHU. We are pleased to feature in this edition of the<br />

alumni magazine two outstanding alumnae who have carved a niche<br />

for themselves in their individual fields.<br />

LHU students have many outlets to express their feelings. There<br />

remains the Eagle Eye, the student-run newspaper, and an alternative<br />

newspaper, The Talon. The radio station and television station,<br />

<strong>Haven</strong> Scope, are alive and well and have good participation from<br />

within the student body. In addition, the Crucible is a literary<br />

creative publication in which students from all backgrounds share<br />

their poetry, short stories and photographs, and the International<br />

Review serves as an outlet for students expressing feelings about overseas<br />

experiences and American lifestyles. With other such media for<br />

the stud ents, LHU remains active in encouraging all students to<br />

express themselves and to develop their own opinions and attitudes<br />

in life.<br />

<strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong>

Using science to deve lop a ch ildls curios ity<br />

oday's children may be doing some pretty fun things in school. .. activities that Mom and<br />

Dad may find to be a little out of the ordinary. Children under the age of eight may be<br />

having so much fun cutting things out of paper, mixing odd solutions and counting in<br />

strange ways that all they can talk about at day's end is the fun they that they had in<br />

school. And Mom and Dad are worried-- their child is not memorizing facts or repeating lists or even sitting<br />

quietly at a desk. They begin to wonder. .. what is really going on at my child's schoo!?!<br />

"Children are innately curious people. They are curious in our closets and in our pots and pans. They find<br />

presents we wrap and hide. They ask questions for which we have no answers," explains Dr. Susan Ashley,<br />

associate professor of education.<br />

Ashley is one of many educators throughout the country who wants<br />

to work with that natural curiosity in children under the age of<br />

eight. Concerned that the United States is los ing ground in sc ience<br />

"If natural curiosity is not fostered, they will lose that capacity."<br />

and math and in preparing children for the challenges of the subjects<br />

in later grades, they see the value of introducing young children to a<br />

non-discipline based science curriculum. Through experimentation,<br />

children become familiar with causes and effects and build a base<br />

line of knowledge to which they can refer as they learn theories and<br />

concepts later in their schooling.<br />

"Science is about asking excellent questions, and letting children enj oy discovering their own answers,"<br />

A shley says. "At this age the teacher is not telling the child the facts about science, but rather, challenging<br />

the students to construct their own questions and ideas. "<br />

As children work with hands-on experimentation, they are building<br />

assist them in their math and sc ience pursuits. Since oral language<br />

and the symbolic representation of our language (i.e. reading<br />

spontaneously but requires instruction, educators see the<br />

directly with science experiments and voicing their<br />

a foundation that will not only<br />

skills come naturally to a child,<br />

and writing) does not occur<br />

value of having students work<br />

thoughts about the processes .<br />

• ••

The dialogue and h ands-on association elicited in this form of<br />

teaching ass ists educators in subjects like reading and socia l<br />

studies. Although these studies are more didactic in nature,<br />

the science learning experiences are grounded in the oral<br />

modality and provide an important foundation for the language<br />

development of children.<br />

Curiosity must be developed in the primary grades for later use<br />

in disciplined-based education at the intermediate and high<br />

school levels. "If natural curiosity is not fostered, they will lose<br />

that capacity. Curiosity is the most critical adult thinking<br />

capacity and is valued." Ashley explains. "Using sc ience in<br />

this way with young children ties in with the ability of the child to accept the challenge of a<br />

problem and to creatively express him or herself."<br />

Hands-on, child-centered ed ucation has a long history which can be traced back to such<br />

theorists as Jean Piaget and Maria Montessorri. Because children are not memorizing<br />

facts or learning in more "traditional" ways, a change in mind set needs to<br />

occur for "developmentally-a ppropriate practice" to be accepted in primary<br />

education. At <strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong>, students enrolled in the early<br />

childhood education program are graduating with a so lid foundation in<br />

this "new" way of helping children learn. With these additional skills,<br />

LHU can provide these majors with a better capacity fo r working with<br />

younger learners.<br />

"You don't have to be a scientist to help children and to promote their<br />

natural curios ity," explains A sh ley. "Many people, including parents and teache<br />

rs, shy away from science because they feel it is not their strength. But that<br />

is not necessary. All parents and teachers have the capacity to support<br />

children's natural curi osity and prepare them for formal education<br />

and adult life ."<br />

<br />

Parents begin to wonder. ..<br />

Gretchen Kreitier, '74,<br />

'63, have both sacrifi ced<br />

pieces of themselves for<br />

their craft.<br />

The two are a study in<br />

contrasts. Krei tier, a pen<br />

Outer Banks of North<br />

Carolina, and Hill, a<br />

wordsmith residing in<br />

State C ollege , have both<br />

traveled different roads to<br />

reach the level of their<br />

present-day success. The<br />

paths of both, however,<br />

Kreider decided to attend<br />

art professor) had on<br />

me as a fine teacher and<br />

artist," Kreider remembers.<br />

"Among many other<br />

influences, my experiences<br />

at the College were<br />

of great value."<br />

Having taken the r ath<br />

her creative ability to<br />

sketch natural scenes and<br />

wildlife. "I do everything,<br />

for the most part," she<br />

says," and I've been lucky<br />

enough to make some<br />

Sandra Cluston Hill<br />

Hill, on the other hand,<br />

different road. She<br />

degree 111 mathematics<br />

year before realizing her<br />

wo rd . "I am a voracious<br />

reader and after teaching<br />

for a while, I re alized I<br />

wanted to write," she<br />

relates. Hill returned to<br />

college and earned a<br />

bachelor' s degree in journa<br />

lism and wrote for<br />

newspapers in ew Jersey<br />

and Pennsylvania before<br />

turning her talent to<br />

U nlike Kreider, H ill<br />

doesn't h ave the financial<br />

burdens often associated<br />

with up-and-coming<br />

artists. Already established<br />

as a reporter and<br />

having four sons who no<br />

longer require her<br />

constant guidance, Hill is<br />

now able to explore once<br />

unknown avenues<br />

through the characters of<br />

her books.<br />

Both women h ave<br />

the way. H av ing parents<br />

with artistic backgrounds<br />

inspired Kreider. Her<br />

work h as appeared on the<br />

cover of Outer Banks<br />

various awards at art<br />

shows. I l ill has recently<br />

sold four manuscripts to<br />

Her first book, The<br />

Reluctant Viking, was<br />

released in October of<br />

Often when LHU students venture to travel abroad they<br />

undergo a metamorphosis in the way that they view life<br />

Senior English major Tim Burdick not only changed his outlook,<br />

but resurrected in him self a new spirit of understanding and a<br />

quest for satisfying his inner soul after two international<br />

experiences Tim has now brought that new openness to his<br />

writing<br />

Sharing Tim's love of the written word is another senior, so<br />

unlike Tim that they truly demonstrate the beauty of diversity in<br />

written expre ss ion Kevin Kovac, a journalism major, has<br />

written about dirt track modified stock car racing for<br />

several years Unlike his counterpart who finds tranquillity<br />

in poetry and fiction writing, Kevin 's ski lls<br />

have led him to an ever-changing, hectic life<br />

iting their <br />

own chapters <br />

Kevin attended races since 12 years of age and in<br />

his yo uth landed a writing position with the Area<br />

Auto Racing News. Today his features span<br />

several other racing publications and newspaper<br />

sports sections He is so enthused about the sport, that<br />

he timed his graduation date around ra cing season and potential<br />

job availability in the field Although he never actually<br />

stepped into a stock car for a serious race, his interest takes<br />

him throughout northeastern United States and Canada .<br />

He is the repeated winner of the Flemington (New<br />

Jersey) Courier Times "Reporter of the Year," and the<br />

Eastern Motor Sport Press Association Convention<br />

Writing Award .<br />

In an environment as competitive as racing, Kevin holds<br />

intentions of co ntinuing his writing after he leaves LHU III<br />

December <strong>1995</strong>. With a portfolio crammed with clips<br />

and an already-broad level of experience of reallife<br />

racing coverage, he is more prepared than<br />

many students to tackle this very difficult task<br />

of "making it" in the sport. His established<br />

contacts and reputation promise to open<br />

doors that a man of his age would not<br />

typically find available.<br />

While he does not find his so lace on<br />

the race track, Kevin's counterpart Tim<br />

grew as a writer from exchanges in<br />

Scotland and England He came to<br />

LHU on a generous scholarship earned<br />

through his 70-page autobiography. At<br />

first, his enrollment in the Honors<br />

Program<br />

demanded<br />

much of his<br />

energy, and<br />

his writing<br />

was not as<br />

strong. But<br />

in his sophomore<br />

year he<br />

traveled to<br />

Scotland.<br />

When he<br />

returned, he<br />

"exploded" as<br />

he moved from a<br />

"cl iche" style to a<br />

more polished presentation.<br />

He kept journals of his experiences<br />

and used long stints on tra ins as time to<br />

write short stories and poetry.<br />

At times Tim feels like som ething of an outcast and believes his<br />

friends would describe him as "eccentric ." His style is certainly<br />

unique and has earned him attention at LHU. As an editor of<br />

the <strong>University</strong> literary magazine, The Crucible, he has attracted<br />

an audience of students, faculty and staff who are intrigued<br />

by his use of words and self expression. Last year he earned<br />

the "Outstanding English Major" award, and has had a play<br />

produced on campus His experiences abroad showed him that<br />

life offers so much. "The sun never sets on my friends ," he<br />

explains as he talks about the diversity of his friendships<br />

gained over the years.<br />

After May graduation, Tim will continue his path of<br />

growth as he continues his work in graduate school<br />

"I have a true love of words and the power of<br />

images," he says "I had a fresh start here (LHU), and<br />

find that this has been a good environment for meno<br />

inhibiting factors"<br />

While worlds apart in interests and style<br />

of writing, both Tim and Kevin express<br />

themselve s and their interests and values<br />

in their art. Both have a mature<br />

outlook on the future and have<br />

definitive plans to make their individual<br />

styles work for them.<br />

Neither sees this expression as a<br />

hobby or as a passing IIlterest<br />

Both feel that their writing is an<br />

integral part of their lives and an<br />

aspect in which the y will continue<br />

to grow

LHU slates summer camp schedule <br />

<strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong> has long been known as one of central Pennsylvania's<br />

premier summer sport camp sites. Throughout the department of athletic's long<br />

history, camps in wrestling, soccer and basketball have drawn thousands of<br />

young people to LHU's campus.<br />

Last year alone, nearly 3,500 campers were part of a session of one sort here at<br />

The <strong>Haven</strong>. With the addition of the <strong>University</strong> Foundation Fields, new artificial<br />

surface and an "Olympic" style eight lane track at Hubert Jack Stadium (both<br />

slated to be finished during this upcoming summer), and a Camps Director, <strong>Lock</strong><br />

<strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong> is making great strides at strengthening its position as one of<br />

Pennsylvania's fine st summer camp facilities.<br />

While traditionally strong camps in wrestling, socce r, football and basketball continue<br />

to be the main focus of the entire program, nearly every athletic program at<br />

the <strong>University</strong> offers a corollary camp run by its head coach. As of this date, 11<br />

sport camps are slated to be run by LHU 's outstanding coaching staff. In addition<br />

to that, camps in theatre (in conjunction with the Millbrook Playhouse ), dance<br />

(run by the Michael Mao Dance Company), and a recreational sports day camp<br />

are also scheduled.<br />

The list of camps offered at <strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong> is growing every day. Each<br />

coach is the director of his or her own camp while the <strong>University</strong>'s Director of<br />

Camps oversees the entire camp picture. The <strong>1995</strong> summer camp program<br />

Includes va rious camps in baseball, boy's basketball, girl's basketball, field hockey,<br />

football, boy's soccer, girl's soccer, softbal l, girl's swimming, girl's volleyball,<br />

wrestling, dance, theatre, and recreational sports. The camps are designed for<br />

boys and girls of all ages<br />

Capital <br />

Campaign <br />

Update <br />



Through an overwhelming show of support. <strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> <strong>University</strong> has received more than $2.2 mi llion in gifts and pledges toward its <br />

Capital Campaign goal of $2.5 million. <br />

of severa l of the Campaign's projects including Jack Stadium, scholarships and property acquisition An add iti onal $180,000 has<br />

been received as undesignated contributions which may be used for any of the seven proJects.<br />

The recent alumni and parent solicitation program bro ught a commitment of more than $400,000 to the Campaign projects At this time<br />

efforts continue to take place as volunteer leaders Dr. Mickey Greenberg, a <strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> physician, and Ralph Lovette, former<br />

Hammermill plant manager, take the reigns of the pro fessional and corporate fundraising effort. The alumni phase of the Campaign<br />

was led by Ron Jury, Class of '72<br />

One of the accompl ishments of the <br />

Campaign has been the securing of the <br />

funding for Jack Stadium which will <br />

eight-lane track and field event areas. <br />

The Stadium will now accommodate a <br />

growing number of intercollegiate and <br />

intramural sports as well as local high <br />

school track. Jack Stadium is one of <br />

two Shared-Funded Capital Projects <br />

addressed in the Capital Campaign To <br />

date, although the Shared Funded <br />

Capital Projects obligation has been <br />

met, the Campaign still seeks an addi ­<br />

tional $600,000 for Ulmer Hall <br />

made in the Campaign or on ways to <br />

Under the leadership of LHU Student Cooperative Council President Jason Cristofaro, a group of concerned<br />

students have formed a committee to examine the issues students face in leasing agreements. The "Rental<br />

Agreements Committee" is designing a plan of action which will complement off-campus student programs<br />

Looking at both the condition of facilities in which students live as well as the legal concerns of leasing agreements,<br />

the committee is designing a student pamphlet which will explain their rights and responsibilities in a<br />

rental situation. Working in conjunction with <strong>Lock</strong> <strong>Haven</strong> City officials, the students are planning to eventually<br />

have lawyers come to<br />

campus to address specific<br />

student concerns in<br />

this area. They are also<br />

hoping to bring landlords<br />

to campus for discussion<br />

groups. Their goal is to<br />

provide assistance this<br />

semester for students<br />
