Dorm life is not always
break down, sinks
leak, the temperature is usually too hot or too cold and
noisy dormmates can make
sleep impossible. Still, most
residents manage to grin- or
grimace- and bear it. To show
their gratitude, the residence
halls administration planned
a Resident Appreciation
Week. One of its features
was a cookout and crawfish
boil, Louisiana style held on
Wednesday March 30th.
ARA, the campus
food service, provided the
grills and the food for the cook-
out. Hamburgers and
hotdogs, along with condiments, and barbecued
chicken were offered. The
crawfish were boiled and
steamed away from the cookout site but arrived fresh and
hot. Hundreds of residents
lined up to share in the food
and fun. Tables were set up
and the affair turned into a
huge picnic. A deejay was on
the grounds to provide musi-
cal entertainment and residents whirled around on a
spinning top-like device that
seemed destined to make
them lose the contents of their
sponsored a Fun-Time Jail to
raise money to help them attend a national Resident Advisors conference. Residents
paid a dollar to file a warrant
for someone's arrest. The
arrested party went to jail
and could pay a dollar to get
out or wait until ten minutes
Overall residents appreciated and enjoyed the
cookout. Tequila Evans,
sophomore business major
said, "We were skeptical
about going, but it turned out
to be fun. I didn't expect so
many people to be there. And
the food was pretty good."
One native Louisian-
ian said of the crawfish: "It
was okay; a little too soft and
it didn't make your nose run."
