Monday, Marcn zi, lytiaine Daily Tar Heel3 Students visit UNC for Decision Days By ASHLEY BLACKWELDER Staff Writer UNC was host last week' to minority students wanting a closer look at Carolina. The third annual Decisions Day, an on-campus, recruitment program, was a three-day event sponsored by the University. The event was a joint effort of the Black Student Movement, Student Government and the administration to aid minority students who have already been admitted to Carolina and their parents to make a final college decision. Most of these students have been admitted here, said Shavette Satterwhite, program coordinator for the office of student affairs. "Decision Days is a last effort on our part to ensure that they come to Carolina." The schedule of Decision Days includes talks by representatives from the Office of Academic Affairs, the Student Aid Office and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, as well as campus tours and attendance of classes of the visitors' choice. "I feel that Decision Days really help to orient students, to see the campus and get information about financial aid before they come here," said LaQuetta Robinson, a sophomore program coordinator fortheBSM. Satterwhite said she expected about 150 students to have participated in the three-day program. Robinson said that one concern of the visiting students was the size of the campus. "It's petrifying and confusing," said Essie Jones, a mother of one of the visiting , students from Ahoskie. "The campus is so big that it would take a strong person to go through with it. I hope this program will be an enlightenment." High school student Wanda Jones said she agreed. "I came to Decisions Days to get better acquainted with the campus so I wouldn't feel so lost in the fall," she said. Wanda Surgeon, a student from Greensboro, said she was impressed with UNC. "I came here last week to visit a friend and I came back again today," she said. "I just like the atmosphere of the campus." "There's a really nice family here," said Henry Clay, father of a student from Greensboro. "I don't know if everyone polished their smiles today or what, but everyone has been so nice and helpful."

Committee announces plan for reserved seating at concert By MARK STINNEFORD Staff Writer Ticket sales for the Carolina Concert for Children will include a block seating system similar to that used for UNC home football games, the Carolina Concert Committee, has announced.
