Transcript FORE! Tee Off at the Towers brought a little bit of the green to the floors of North Tower. Students took turns putt- putting through simulated obstacle course like holes. The RA's of the Towers used everything from tubes to newspaper to build the course into a challenge. Participants paid a green fee of five dollars m i which in the end went to benefit Big Brother's and Big Sister's of America. A non-profit orga- k nization that y helps Houston's I less fortunate ^^" children by giving them mentors and trying to meet their basic needs. A few of the more serious golfers found golf on an artificial green frus- trating. They claimed that their swing was off due to the limited amount of space offeredplus there were no caddies!. For the less skilled it was an opportunity to practice without the pressures of competition. It's kind of hard to relax when the sun is glaring down on top of your head.An in- door course was the perfect answer Jennifer Van Akin fourth Floor North: Christine Gembecki, Denal James,Soliana Ghirmai, Mercia Davidson, Nicole Unger,Tamara Maze, Gypsy Hebert, Christie Coston, Johnnie Kay McManus.P/zofo by Mark Lacey /^ifthFloor North:Mark Anderson, Mark Scarlong, George Selmer, Kyle Johnsen, Darren Nickerson, Andy Gordly, Donald Burks, Ramon Ontiveroz, David Morales, Timothy Graham, Eric Simpson,David Rothe, Oliver Llorin, Adrian Arrows.

And the guy your roommate brought home to spend the night looked like the guy on America's Most Wanted. At least he had his shots right? These minor problems were no reason for you to pack up your microwave and trudge on down the hall. Let's face it. Living with someone you don't know very well isn't easy, especially if you are use to your own space . James Cox, a sophmore Speech Disorders/Psychology major had this to say, "It was hard learning to respect someone elses' boundaries..Mutual compromise is essential if you are to get along." For some students compromise was next to impossible to achieve. One freshman, who asked simply to be known only as Mark, only went in his room when his roommate was out. Mark wished that "he would lighten up." Privacy, specifically the lack of it, was another problem among roommates. It was bad enough that you could hear all the musical diversity at once through the paper thin walls but it was even worse when your roommate infringed on you when you were trying to study or entertain your significant other. The little things added up. Things like messing up more than your half of the room, sleeping during the day instead of at night,and inflicting school spirit bordering on fanaticism that tended to get on ones' nerves. That was were constructive compromise and mutual respect stepped in.-Jennifer Van Akin ■W "*£ook dude, we're going to watch Living Color." t Photo by Gilbert Sifuentes /alking things out does wonders for any relationship.
