Transcript Party like it's 2002! The student publications department whoops it up at their annual Christmas/New Year's party.

Student Life The New Year often marks a new beginning for many people, including members of the UH community. 2001 was a trying and turbulent year for many students and faculty members, including the normal traffic and parking hassles of the campus, the difficulty of courses, a win- less football team, and, of course, the tragedy of September 11th. Many saw the dawn of 2002 as a chance to right the wrongs of the previous year. Students on campus celebrated the coming of the New Year in many different ways. "It's a party that only happens once a year," said senior marketing major Seth Morgan. "You've got to get out there and take advantage!" Some students, like Morgan, went to local clubs or bars and partied until the wee hours of the morning. Others gathered with a few friends in their homes or apartments to watch the ball drop in Times Square. Still others spent the evening with family members, quietly contemplating a year of unprecedented events in our nation. One of the staples of New Year's Day is the making of New Year's resolutions. When asked what New Year's resolutions she had made, sophomore architecture major Dianne Rothman replied, "My grades weren't exactly what I thought they should be last semester, so this year I'm resolving to study harder and do better in my classes." Similar sentiment was reflected around the campus by many students. Other popular resolutions on campus included promises of weight loss, living healthier, being tuwraw more committed to family and friends, and striving for success. Despite the inherent difficulties of sticking to those resolutions for the rest of the year, most students seemed optimistic that 2002 would bring better times. The evening of December 31,2001 was a time of reflection, introspection, and anticipation for the coming year. No matter how students spent their New Year's Eve night, everyone seemed to awaken the next morning (or, in some cases, the next afternoon) with a renewed sense of focus and hope for the New Year.
