About 150 students emerged from a University of Massachusetts building they occupied for six days demanding greater minority enrollment and more campus funding. "United we fought, together we did this," Maurice Caston-Powe, president of the Student Government Assn., told 300 students outside the Goodell Building in Amherst.

By most accounts, high school students get involved with campus government for purely altruistic reasons. Some might initially take a student government class thinking it will be an easy A. Or they might vie for school president just for kicks. But when they discover student government is hard work, they display uncanny amounts of determination, teachers say. They don't quibble about staying after class to paint posters advertising school dances or blood drives.

A feisty student-run newspaper shut down three weeks ago by the student government at Cal State Long Beach after publishing a satirical section containing erotic drawings has been revived by order of a student judiciary committee. "Right now, I'm ecstatically happy that we're open for business again," said Gary Stark, editor of the Union newspaper founded 10 years ago by student government as an alternative to the newspaper run by the university's journalism department.

The Student Senate at Cal State Long Beach has voted to shut down an alternative newspaper it has published for more than 10 years after the paper printed a satirical edition containing erotic drawings. "That was the straw that broke the camel's back," Roger Thompson, the student body president, said of what was called "The Sexually Frustrated Male Issue." "We just felt that we could do better things with the money," Thompson said.

It may or may not be their mess, but they'll clean it up anyway. In response to a challenge by Mayor Jan Heidt, the members of the Canyon High School student government adopted a strip of Whites Canyon Road near their school to do monthly litter pickups. The decision came after Heidt received a letter from an angry resident complaining about the disheveled state of the street and blaming the mess on students at Canyon and nearby Sierra Vista Junior High.

Saying that student leaders at Saddleback College are not setting the right example, the City Council this week passed a resolution urging them to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance at all their public meetings. The action came just two weeks after a similar resolution was passed by San Juan Capistrano's City Council. "Many people are looking to your leadership," San Clemente Councilman Patrick M. Ahle told student leaders. "What type of example are you going to set? What values, what morals . .

"This is vivisection," the boldfaced three-inch headline proclaimed over a photo of a monkey strapped spread-eagled to a lattice of metal bars. In the accompanying front-page article, Louis Cyon, editor of the Union, Cal State Long Beach's alternative newspaper, vigorously attacked a CSULB psychology professor, calling him a "notorious vivisectionist" and "a cruel human being."

If you went to my high school and weren't in attendance on the first day back from summer break -- say, you had been on vacation with your parents an extra day, or you had come down with the flu -- a rumor that you were pregnant and out getting an abortion went hastily through the locker-lined halls. In 10th grade, it happened to me (I had been sick), and, from then on, I wanted to write about a popular girl who is mistaken for pregnant by her schoolmates. The girl must hand in her homecoming crown, withdraw from student government, where she is president, and give up her football-captain/quarterback boyfriend.

A fraternity member won the USC student body president election Tuesday night, continuing a pattern of male undergraduate leaders at the school. Andrew Menard, who serves in student government and is the social chair of Sigma Chi, and his running mate, Rini Sampath, who is not a member of a Greek organization, received 44% of the vote, according to student media. Another ticket headed by a fraternity member finished second with about 29% of the ballots. It's unclear how the third team on the ballot did. The presidential candidate on that ticket, James White, is not part of the Greek system but his running mate was. The complete election results will be available later in the week.  Fraternity members have generally claimed the USC student presidency recently, which is not unusual at large campuses with Greek systems.
