Freshmen seek out FACES

By The Wildcat Opinions Board

The Associated Students of University of Arizona (ASUA) has begun 2001 on a good note by giving the FACES program permanent status within ASUA.

FACES - Freshmen Active in Campus Events and Services - encourages freshman involvement in ASUA activities.

Freshmen obviously cannot run for office within ASUA during their first semester at school, but FACES gives them an opportunity to become involved in the activities of UA's student government. Because of FACES, freshmen can work with ASUA officers as aides for various projects.

There are currently 100 members of FACES, 30 of whom are active. The organization was on a "trial" basis for a semester. At ASUA's first spring meeting on Wednesday night, ASUA moved FACES from a "trial" organization to a permanent part of ASUA.

FACES is part of an important campus-wide goal: to enhance and sustain student involvement in campus-wide activities. ASUA should work on building FACES' membership and compelling more freshmen to be active within ASUA events.

Now ASUA should continue achieving its campaign promises of the past, including expanding the escort service and improving parking and transportation.
