High cost jeopardizes London Semester by Sulema Elizondo Staff Writer Students participating in the Fall '88 London Semester may be the last UTSA group to have the opportunity to study in the overseas program due to high ad¬ ministrative costs. The London Semester offers students a semester of studying and living in London while earn¬ ing credit in UTSA courses. The courses offered include. Art, Ar¬ chitecture, History, Literature, Music, Political and Social Science. Students participating in this program will live in an American Institute for Foreign Study residence near Regent's Park in Universily und ihc Univt-r.sily of Houston. Ihe cost for the I.ondon Semester includes a program fee of $.'!.700 for housing and .ser¬ vices. The program fee pays for services such as accommodation. Students' Union and travel passes for the duration of the program. Students must also pay an airfare fee of $575 (round trip from San Antonio) and all UTSA tuition and fees incurred. A .'B150 refundable damage deposit is included in the program fee. "It's an expensive program to • administer and unless there are a fair number of students going in the spring semester, it just does lor the program. The praclliiil reasons are that it provides students wilh a chance lo li\ e in a foreign culture and be iil)lo to learn about attitudes from that culture. Some of the impractical reasons are thai it broadens a stu¬ dent's awarenes of London. UTSA's representing facully member for the fall semester is Woodruff Smith, hislory pro¬ fessor. "I wish this program was more readily available for ihose students who want lo go bul are nol fmancially able to go," said Smilh. Some (it tiie cliisscs iillcri'd dur¬ ing the fall semesler are "The I.ondon Theatre ' iind "INtmiji sion". Smilh will Iciich "Wcslcrn ('i\ ili/ation " and "liriliiiii since 1760."

Classes will be held at the University of London in Bloomsbury. Student activities are subsidi7,ed from i.he program fee and include visits to museums, galleries and excur¬ sions to points of interest in Lon¬ don. To qualify for the London Semester, a student must have a 2.5 GPA and at°least 24 hours of college credit. All courses are taught by UTSA faculty .members and other bartlicipat- •ing Texas universities: UT- Arlington, North Texas State not make sense for the University to pay for the administrative cost, " said Dr. Alan E. Craven, UTSA London Semester coor¬ dinator. Harry Vount, senior, recently returned from the Spring "88 London .Semester" said "London was fantastic. There's an incredi¬ ble amount of things to do. The program as a whole was excellent. To study overseas is a great ex¬ perience and 1 would recommend the program tu any student."

SRA turns over festivals to UCPC The Student Representative Assembly voted to turn over the organizing of Bestfest and Fiesta UTSA to the University Center Program Council at the assembly's April 6 meeting. The decision was made because SRA members would like to see the events grow in size and in community importance. Members believe that the UCPC is better equipped to handle the organization of the two on campus festivals. At the same meeting, the assembly passed a resolution establishing a judicial commission which would, in part, determine the validity of petitions filed with the SRA, and wil! run and validate all SRA elections. The three member commission will be selected by a committee consisting of the student activities director, the two SRA advisers, the SRA president and one other SRA member. For more informa¬ tion on applying for the commission, contact the SRA office at 691-4597.
