New Counselor For College of Engineering
The College of Engineering has a new part-time counselor. Linda
Schilling, formerly a career counselor with Continuing Education Services,
has
been hired to help students wth personal, academic, or career-decision prob-
lems.
Ms. Schilling feels that she can help students with a wide range of
problems. "Sometimes getting students to talk about a problem is a valuable
first step. I feel I can help students with personal issues that may be affecting
their academic performance. I can also help students with career decisions,
such
as choosing a major." Ms. Schilling replaces Jackye Thomas, who resigned
to
accept a student affairs position at MATC.
Students wishing to make an appointment can call 262-3507, or stop
by Room 22 General Engineering.

New Johnson Drive Computer Facility
Computer Aided Engineering has consolidated much of
its resources from what were CAE East and CAE West into a new
student computing center at 1410 Johnson Drive. The new
building has both computer classrooms and open work areas with
an impressive array of terminals, personal computers, and
engineering workstations. The facilities are open 24 hours per
day, seven days a week.
Mary Baldwin, one of the facility managers, emphasizes
that the computing power was put in place with College of
Engineering funds exclusively for engineering students. "This
facility is not an open campus lab," according to Ms. Baldwin.
"Any student who is taking an engineering course is welcome, but
we aren't here to serve students from other schools and colleges."
Ms. Baldwin believes that students who are veterans of
CAE are enjoying the sparkling new facilities and the greater
number of computers. "The students are finding us and liking
what they see. I've eliminated sign-up sheets, and I know the
students are glad to see that. Now I can deal with students on a
first-come, first-serve basis."
Consultants are available 8 am to midnight to help
students with equipment and program problems. After midnight,
student helpers arc available to help with emergencies.
