Transcript Hurricane Gilbert Many Share Disappointment "Ooh, wasn't that scary?" "I know I'm still shaking!" Cloudly skies, drizzle, and a few gusts of wind, the only effects of Hurricane Gilbert on campus, left many hurricane-watching students in the residence halls disillusioned and others relieved. After all of the pre- storm hype which led most students to tape windows, protect delicate valuables, and some even to evacuate the area, many residents were upset by the storm's turn into Mexico, leaving the campus high and almost dry. Resident Advisor Mikal Bellicove said, 'Tm proud that the residents reacted in a mature way. They had sense enough to leave if they thought they were in danger, while those who stayed were calm and followed directions well. We were lucky that it didn't come." Other students such as freshman Kenton Green agreed. "I'm relieved it didn't come because it would have caused a great deal of damage and I wouldn't want any homeless people flying past me through the air or anything else for that matter." Green was always doubtful as to the storms actual landfall saying, "I wasn't go ing to move anything until the last minute. My roommate and suitemates all went in together to buy food and stuff and my roommate even taped the windows, but I really didn't think it was going to come." The majority of students had hoped for the storm to come through and many expressed disappointment when the monstrous storm entered into Mexico. "I was really disappointed," said sophomore Eric Grimm, "I had hoped to see what it would do." "I wanted to see a hurricane," Ryan Chadwick said. The extensive post- storm coverage also upset some students. 'Tm just sick of hearing about ij," said junior Bethany Meacham while watching television coverage at a friend's apartment, "just turn it off!" After nearly destroying Jamaica and Cancun, the storm headed for Houston, but turned back into Mexico and left the Mexican metropolis of Monterrey badly damaged. But, there was one good thing about Hurricane Gilbert, said sophomore Marcee Martin, "Even if it didn't come here, at least we got out of classes for a day!" ► Mona Arnold 174 ■ Residence Halls T
