Transcript How Much Do You Know Residents Demonstrate Their Knowledge of the Dictionary T'was the week before Spring Break, and all through the dorm; Not a sound was heard, as students studied up a storm. The instructors didn't care if you had other classes; They assigned homework, gave tests, and pulled papers from their....glasses. Anxiety grew as you studied for each test; and your poor body worked under huge amounts of stress. That's right, stress! As professors designated the week before Spring Break "Mid-term Week", homework piled up and studying became more intense. And though most teachers failed to realize your life surpassed the realms of their classes, Betsy Sherman, R.A. for 4th floor Taub did. Determined to make the week more bear- able, Sherman armed with her "Dictionary Game", held a function March 10th. "You've probably seen the board version of this game," she acknowledged, "but after a while, you know all the meanings to the words, so why buy it?" Especially when you have your own Webster's unabridged, right?, she said. About a dozen people stopped by, including Assistant Area Coordinator Bryan Burns who was a horrible but humorous player and a good sport. Monica Sarkar, 4th floor resident won the game. The Dictionary Game by Sherman was played as follows: Each player received a pad of paper on which he/she wrote his/her name. A designated player selected a word from the dictionary, announced it aloud, and challenged each player to write down the correct definition. All the definitions were col lected and read aloud. Each person voted for which definition he/she felt was correct. One point was given to players who guessed correctly. Additional point could have been earned if a player voted for another player's incorrect definition. The game can go on indefinitely, but Valerie Ridgeley, freshman Taub resident doesn't view that as a problem. "It gives me a chance to fool usually intelligent, college students," she says. "And. that's always fun, isn't it? -LaGuana K. Gray. Surviving Finals and the Holidays Dorms Help Students On a Budget and Those Studying Many students were leaving behind the stress of exams to surmount another obstacle: surviving the holiday season on a student budget that limited fine-dining experiences to either Wendy's 99-cent burgers or Taco Bell. Students living in residence halls could find some financial relief by attending parties given by their floor advisors, said Karen Elkins, area coordinator for the Quadrangle. "A number of the RA's will be having parties for finals week study- break for their floor. We will also decorate a Christmas Tree with recycled materials to promote our recycling project. We'll probably offer hot cider and doughnuts to participating students," Elkins said. ARA sold turkeys and hams to students with board cards, she said. Floor advisors offered students survival kits complete with various snack food to help alleviate stress from studying for final exams, Elkins said. A midnight breakfast, served in the Moody Towers, enabled residents to quell their cravings for midnight munchies. Students confined to a strict budget realized that buying the perfect gifts for their friends and family is nearly impossible. They looked for sales or even made their own gifts. Bethanie Williams, a junior psychology major, said she is making gifts for 12 of her friends living in the Moody Towers. Williams worked with many children for the Mental Health and Mental Retardation Association. Finding inexpensive arts and craft projects for the children to work on gave her several ideas about making gifts for her friends, she said. "This year I'm making little tokens like pencils that are decorated like Rudolph for some people on my floor," she said. "My mom is also helping me out a lot and making lingerie for my close friends. I have to pay for the decorations and paint, but it's very inexpensive and turns out really nice. -Melissa Neeley 98 Residence Halls
