More than 4,100 students went through the Office
of Records and Registration at Hanes Hall Monday to
turn in their spring preregistration forms.
Ben Perry, assistant director, said there were few
problems. 'The day went smoothly." he said.
"The lines were long, but they moved quickly," he
said. "We opened the doors at 7:15 a.m. in order to

It is rumored that a number of students were in line for

The men taken to Ayden reported no
