and varsity swimmer Tim Wef said his
coach encourages team menbers to
make schoolwork their top prority. "He
understands that we're here ,s students
first and swimmers second," le said.
Some students may notthink that
athletes make academics apriority. "I
study a lot," Harrison sail. "Maybe
people see us as being nnchalant or
not as stressed as everyoie else. But
school is pretty stressful."
Men's tennis head coact Mark Mees
said an academic backgnund will be
critical for athletes in the future. "We
have a real good group ofguys who all
realize the importance of getting a
degree," Mees said. Although he would
like to see his players aimto play tennis
professionally, he said, it i;very difficult
to make it as a professional athlete.
Non-athletes can often push assign-
ments and studying to the weekend -
a luxury athletes do not have. Study-
ing, when it takes place, occurs on the
road and whenever athletes can fit it
in. Rindler said studying on the week-
ends is difficult when the team is com-
peting out of town. "Not much
studying gets done on the road. It's
pretty hard to crack open your books,
so everything just gets pushed back to
later in the evening."
When student athletes miss tests due
to away games or tournaments, they
often can take them on the road under
the supervision of their coaches. Kinesi-
ology junior and varsity softball player
Amy Prichard said she once took a
Physics 140 exam sitting on the floor of
a bus and with her coach as a proctor.
Making up tests is not an unfamiliar
situation for many student athletes who
travel on the weekends. Mees said he
works hard to maintain good communi-
cation with students' professors and
inform them of conflicts well in
advance. "We stress not surprising pro-
fessors," he said.
Student athletes are required by the
University to maintain at least a 2.0
grade point average and carry a mini-
mum of 12 credit hours. Assuming
that on top of this, the average student
athlete trains for 15 hours a week dur-
ing the regular season, the amount of
time available for studying is already
Mees said it is also important to con-
sider physical exhaustion as a factor.
Spending several hours a day in practice
can tire out athletes even before they
Most student athletes have to sched-
ule classes around practice times, which
often means they take an 8 a.m. class
rather than the same one at 3 p.m. Mees
said he allows players - especially jun-
iors and seniors who have fewer options
in their schedules - to let tennis fit into
their academic program and not the
other way around.
Wera said a typical day consists of
morning practice, breakfast, class,
lunch, practice, dinner and then home-
work. "I've had this type of schedule
since high school," he said.
But what is normal for an athlete may
not be normal for the average student. "I
definitely don't have the college experi-
ence," Wera said, adding that in spite of
his schedule, being a student athlete is
Prichard echoed the same sentiment,
saying "We complain about it, but we
know we love what we do."

talists," he said.
The Islamic revolution in Iran
that replaced the monarchy with
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in
1979 reshaped media in the Middle
East, Nazir said.
The government controls much of
the media in the Middle East by
forbidding critical and dissenting
voices from being published, he
said. However, relatively free media
exists in Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan
and sometimes in Pakistan, he
"The Middle East represents the
world's most closed media," Nazir
said. "What's conspicuously absent
are critics of the government."
Al-Jazeera - the Arab-language
television network based in Qatar
- is the one significant exception
to the prevailing censorship of the
media in the Middle East, he said.
Al-Jazeera has challenged issues
such as polygamy, corruption and
"Al-Jazeera comes across as a
fresh breeze," Nazir said. "But Al-
Jazeera shouldn't have broadcasted
images of the POWs" - the Ameri-
can soldiers recently captured by
In Pakistan, he said, dictators try
to buy journalists' loyalties. Yet if
they resist, journalists are prone to
intimidation, abduction and physi-
cal abuse, he added.
"You find fundamentalists perme-
ating in every social fabric," Nazir
said. "There's a war going on
between moderates and Islamists."
