Transcript For an international student, Christmas in the Residence Halls can be a lonely time. But for many, it is much too expensive to travel home for the three week break. Well, this year was another story. Residents received notice that they would not be allowed to live in either the Towers or the Quad. There was normally a charge of $100.00 to remain over the holidays. Instead they were given the option of Cougar Place or various hotels near the campus at about $300.00 or more. ieaioni Qreclmqs International Students Concerned About Use Of lee: Concerned that other departments may be benefitting from their money, international students challenged the administration, and questioned the rise in payment and use of their student service and orientation fees. "International student service fees have gone up from $30 to $40 and none of the students were notified," says Kamran Riaz, Council of Ethnic Organi zations Assistant Director. "When I received my fee statement, I noticed the increase and asked why none of us were told and why we had to pay $40. I was told that I could either pay the money or lose my registration." International students may also find themselves paying $40 instead of $30 for International Orientation fees in the future. A formal request was made by Dr. Jack Burke, of the Office of International Student Services, and is pending approval. In the request, the justification for change said "... the fee increase is to maintain a quality program. To cut any more corners would only reduce the quality of the program. For years the pay for student orientation advisers has been an honorarium of $50. This needs to be increased in order to offer a greater incentive to these tu- dent workers for the four day program." "Current use of the fee ports a four-day orient; program for new internati students arriving for Fall Spring semesters. The fe used for meals, room char ;es, transportation, student assis ant wages, publicity, and other r tis- cellaneous expenses." The proposed use of a< di- ion rial ind is International Students at UH, from 89 countries, make up 6.4% of the student body. In a traditional Indian Show, this year's "Basant Bahar," sponsored by the ISA in Cullen Auditorium, attracted well over 1,000 people. 234
