College students nationwide are now facing a new level of controversy concerning the age-old argument of the separation of church and state. In 1 1 states across the nation, students who have earned state- funded scholarships, and choose any form of religious studies as a major, are receiving notification that they will simply have to find another way to pay for an education. In December, The Supreme Court will review the case "Davey vs. Locke", which is the first of many cases to seek legal action on the dispute. Joshua Davey earned the Promise Scholarship in August of 1999, which he planned to apply at Northwest College of Washington State. After choosing a double major of business management and pastoral ministries, he was informed that his scholarship would be void. He sued state officials, claiming to be a victim of religious discrimination. Although he lost the state-level case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th circuit took Davey's side, 2-1, declaring that he was discriminated against, based on his religious views. "Separation" continued on P9. 3 1 U.j.....t..-- . . -. i 1 Supreme Court reviews case which has caused much dispute.

Eldon McMurray beat out 60 applicants to win the right to address the National Student Success Conference. His 90-minute speech outlined ground breaking research done at Utah Valley State College. The national keynote address was given at the HoughtonMifflin Company sponsored conference, which took place October 25-26 in San Antonio, Texas. Along with assistant professor Marni Sanft, Eldon McMurray developed a pre-revolutionary framework for student learning. This critical idea, which consists of four styles of perceiving and processing information, won McMurray the opportunity to deliver a national address. "We have to receive national recognition for the framework before receiving recognition locally" states Eldon McMurray. Hopefully with the year's upcoming conferences, there will be more recognition for the 'Framework of Student Learning Styles'. According to David Kolb's and Bernice McCarthy research, students generally perceive and process information in one of four ways, including feeling, watching, thinking, and doing.
