Transcript Handicapped Student Advisory Board The Department of Campus Activities sponsored leadership programs like the Leadership Institute, which was a 10- week non-credit class offered at the beginning of each semester. This program gave students opportunities to develop leadership styles, learn how to motivate groups, plan programs, solve problems and deal with conflicts, she said. Another program, called the Leadership Challenge, was a one-day conference which attempted to introduce members of student organizations to different types of leadership styles, Trevino said. " We do group work where they can get involved in problem solving." Working for an organization instilled responsibility and allowed the students to grow, said Marian Awad, the communication director of the Golden Key National Honor Society. Students who worked part- time did not have much time to spare, but they still participated in student activities and benefit by joining, Trevino said. Involvement helped students feel they were part of the university, and it encouraged them to continue their course work, Trevino said. Students who did not have any connection with the campus except studying had a tendency to drop out, she added. Durward Burral, a member of the visual and performing arts and special events committees, said by participating in campus events he had developed a feeling of acceptance on campus. Trevino said, "Sometimes a few students get overly committed in their organizations and don't turn in their assignments."

Awad said, "My top priority is studying, but I like to give as much time as the Golden Key needs and I learned how to manage time." President of the Black Student Union, Mary Francis said if she needed someone to talk with, she always found a friend in her organization. Francis also worked part-time, but other members helped her deal with the pressures of everyday life, she added. The organizations themselves generated interests by setting up tables throughout campus and encouraged students to stop by and discuss the groups, Trevino said. Some students may have wanted to start their own organization, Trevino said. By having at least three members and taking a few days to learn regulations about forming a group, students could have started their own organization, she added. "We're not here with just buildings and book, we're here as a community of breathing, challenging people," Trevino said, "to learn to work with one another and to build up our community."
