LCI INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES CAMPUS TALK TO COLLEGES IN EIGHT MIDWESTERN STATES

 LCI INTERNATIONAL INTRODUCES CAMPUS TALK
 TO COLLEGES IN EIGHT MIDWESTERN STATES
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- LCI International today announced a new long-distance calling program for college students -- CAMPUS TALK. With CAMPUS TALK, college students will receive a low-cost long-distance calling and travel card that offers many conveniences.
 LCI's CAMPUS TALK offers direct billing to the student's campus address or to the student's home address, a flexible payment option (MasterCard, Visa or personal check) and low, competitive long-distance pricing.
 CAMPUS TALK will be offered initially in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and West Virginia. This service is pending FCC approval which is anticipated on July 31.
 "This is a service that will make college administrators -- especially those in Ohio -- sit up and pay attention," said Thomas J. Wynne, LCI International president. "Ohio's public colleges have been forced to raise tuition beginning in the fall due to budget cuts imposed by the Ohio legislature. A medium size college can earn up to $10,000 a month in commissions from long distance usage by its student body. College administrators are seeking new sources of funds and this is a program that is competitively priced to keep a student on his or her budget and also provide a source of income to the school."
 LCI International has already reached agreements with three midwestern colleges (The University of Toledo and Ohio Dominican College in Ohio and Chatham College in Pittsburgh) to provide the CAMPUS TALK service. Under the program, participating colleges and universities will receive commissions based on long-distance calls placed by students.
 "CAMPUS TALK is a new and innovative long-distance service for colleges and their students. We feel there is great demand for such a service and we look forward to providing a quality service to each college or university and its attending students," Wynne said.
 Details on CAMPUS TALK are available from LCI International by calling Rob Hemmen, product manager, at 614-798-6871.
