Don't fret there is a way to be meaningful to someone very special. Opportunities to make friends with the disabled are abundant in Utah County. Aside from the many people on campus with disabilities to befriend, there are many local facilities that are in need of volunteer service, such as the Utah State Developmental Center or the Dan Peterson School. Both need UVSC students who are willing to volunteer.Disabilities found at both the center and the school can include Cerebal Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome, or mental r i COURTESY PHOTO Miss Utah 1999 Vanessa Ballam (far left) and Miss UVSC 2000 Brittany Wiscombe (far right) with Michael Wiscombe, Brittany's younger brother, who has Cerebral Palsy. retardation. All of these disabled individuals have different obstacles to overcome, but they share the need for friends and the ability to be a friend. "The residents at our center have family and workers who care for them, but what they really need is friends. Everyone needs a friend," Miss University of Utah 2000 Maria Graham said. Miss UVSC 2000 Brittany Wiscombe has volunteered at her brother's school since she was 8-years-old. She loves to spend time with her only brother, Michael, who has Cerebral Palsy, and even with her busy schedule, she continues to volunteer at his school. "I have found that the more time I volunteer, the more enjoyable free time I have," Wiscombe said. Everyone can volunteer in a variety of ways, "No matter what you do at the center, you will make a difference in someone's life, which provides endless personal satisfaction," Graham said. Volunteering at the Utah State Developmental Center s consists of befriending residents for an hour a week, taking a group of 10 to 15 volunteers on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday nights, or getting a group of 50 or more people to assist with the center's larger activities. Volunteering at the Dan Peterson School will also include spending time with individuals with special needs, but will be in a classroom environment where one will read and assist in the student's educational needs. "Volunteering will not only look good on a resume or application, but it opens many windows of opportunity," Wiscombe said shortly the Miss UVSC pageant Tuesday. "I have never learned more about myself than I have in the past year while I have been so involved with the disabled." Wiscombe received a full scholarship last year for her many hours of dutiful volunteer service. "No other job can compensate for the rewards that you get working with these individuals," Graham said. Even without a Valentine this year, there are still many opportunities available to experience some of the greatest love; the love of a friend. To volunteer with the Dan Peterson School, contact UVSC's Office of Volunteer Services, where Maxine Smeath will coordinate your efforts with Wiscombe and the school Continued pg. 3 See "Service" Binge drinking increasing among young adults By SOPHIA WILSON OF THE NETXNEWS STAFF Sarah, a high school senior, drinks in moderation, but many of her friends do not. At one party, a classmate passed out after downing more than 20 shots of hard liquor and had to be hospitalized. At another party, a friend got sick, so Sarah made her drink water, dressed her in a sweatshirt to keep her warm and laid her in bed with a bucket on the floor. Then she brushed the girl's long hair away from her face so that it wouldn't get coated with vomit. "Every single party has alcohol," Sarah said. How dangerous is drinking, really? New research suggests that binge drinking is particularly detrimental to young adults. The most recent statistics from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Household Survey of Drug Abuse indicates that nearly 7 million youths between the ages of 12 and 20 bing-drink at least once a month. Henry Wechsler of the Harvard School of Public Health says that two of every five college students still binge drink regularly. Scientists have long known that excessive alcohol consumption among adults over long periods of time can cause brain damage, ranging from mild loss of motor skills, psychosis and even the inability to form memories. Until recently, scientists assumed that a youthful brain is more resilient than that of an adult's, and could escape many of the worst ills of alcohol. New information suggests that teen drinkers are more susceptible to damage in the hippocampus, a structure buried deep in the brain that is responsi- contlnued pg. 3 see "Alcohol"
