V...... . f Z- : v J e Inside V L Rucdiger Lchnardt teaches German at UVSC and will be taking a group of students to Germany next summer. J By Emma Norton OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF In the summer of 2001 eight UVSC students had the opportunity to study the German language and German history at the Goethe Institute in Germany while living with German families. In the summer of 2003 more UVSC students will have this opportunity. Rucdiger Lehnardt is the director of the study abroad program that takes UVSC students to Germany to be immersed in German culture. This coming summer students participating in the German study abroad will spend their weekday mornings being taught by German teachers in Germany's Goethe Institute in Dresden. Mr. Lehnardt will be available to tutor the students in the afternoon. Dresden, according to Mr. Lehnardt, is the "heart of the cultural cradle in Germany." He will be taking students on weekend excursions to Berlin, Jena, Weimar, and Erzgebirge. During the four-week program students can earn up to eight semester credits. The cost of the program is minimal (about $3000) and it includes a home to stay in, roundtrip airfare, classes, and transportation and entrance fees on excursions. Mr. Lehnardt is originally from Berlin Germany. He moved to the United States with his family when he was twelve years old. He started at UVSC as a math teacher and he taught math for several years until he started the school's German program. He began taking student groups to Germany two years ago but was not able to take students this past summer due to possible safety issues related to the war on terror, however the first year of the UVSC study abroad program in Germany was a success. Mike Frahm, a student who participated in the first trip said in a report on the trip, "my trip to Germany was, to say the least, an amazing experience." He also said he had the opportunity to meet other srudents from, other countries who were also studying German at the Goethe institute. The education students receive during their study abroad is of the highest quality. There are classes on all levels so even students who are just beginning in German are welcome to attend. Mr. Lehnardt said the teachers that the students he took to Germany encountered were very understanding of American culture and they treated the students very "Germany" continued on page 4 ush Gathers Military Advisers By Jennifer Loven ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - President Bush summoned top military advisers to his ranch for a big-picture discussion of defense policy and budgeting. But the question of what to do about Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein no doubt would be the impossible-to-ignore elephant in the room. Bush administration aides have taken pains to portray Wednesday's meeting at the Prairie Chapel Ranch as simply a high-level huddle on the future needs of the military, with no space on the agenda for war planning. However, the weighty guest list, which included Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, White House chief of staff Andrew Card and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Richard Myers, led to speculation there likely would be some discussion of U.S. military options against Iraq. On the official to-discuss list were the 2004 defense budget, the direction of V . i 7 1 T missile defense programs since U.S. withdrawal from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and Bush's desire to reshape priorities to reflect modern-day war realities - a transformation that could include cutting expensive, politically popular, aircraft programs. Rumsfeld on Tuesday described the meeting as a routine effort to update the president, who is spending a monthlong working vacation at his 1,600-acre spread. Likewise, White House press secretary Ari Fleischer has noted that Army Gen. Tommy Franks, the U.S. military commander in the theater of any future Iraq action, was not invited. He also pointed out a similar broad-based Pentagon planning session - involving essentially the same people - last August during Bush's Texas vacation. " v Can I guarantee you that that word will never come up? No, of course not," Fleischer said of "Advisers" continued on page 3 Buying Books in PJ's By Michael Strong OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Anticipation filled the Student Center hall on August fourteenth as students peered into the dark bookstore, impatiently waiting for it to open. Only a few had elected to wear their pajamas and show their school pride. A little after 8 p.m. the store illuminated, revealing about forty staff members bedecked in outrageous get-ups. The students did not accept the cheer that the bookstore clerks divulged. ..they waited impatiently in the hall for a few more minutes. When the doors finally opened, the mob of spiritless scholars rushed to the door and crowded into the bookstore like sardines in a can. With the continued encouragement of the bookstore attendants, the customers gradually relaxed and began to enjoy the pleasant predicament. Cheery clerks were hiding at the back of the bookstore with free refreshments. Pepsi was not present at the party, but Coke and popcorn were available to everyone. For students that were feeling lucky, there was a drawing for a free DVD player at the snack stand.
