Transcript Ugh . . . the bookstore drains another student of his hard earned cash during registration, left. With registration behind, students are off to class, below. "Our club's better than your club," is the Newman cry as they ready their booth for the registration mob, hoping to lure the weary student into signing up. Break Begins - Then Back to Classes Again Students search out quiet corners in the library for study during exam week, above. Time stands still for students taking their final exams, right. 60 The fall and rise of the UH student is aptly depicted by the end of semester break and the beginning of spring registration. To ease the pain of finals, students were given two dead days last year. To many this only prolonged the inevitable agony. With term papers whipped out in two days and courses covered in a night, the "stay-awake-pill" became a source of survival to students who staged the all night cram. Just as quickly as they came, finals ended and all that remained were the sordid final grade reports and the promise of a free wheeling semester break. Registration was like an Astrodome sellout as 20,494 students jammed the gymnasium to pull class cards and reshuffle schedules. It was the same old story as harassed students waited in long lines, grieved over closed sections and pondered conflicting schedules. Then with fees paid, books and supplies bought, students trudged off to new courses and another semester. 61
