said, until they were forced off
campus by the dorm lottery.
Parkerson-Ripley, a graduating
senior who served on the congress
since October, said that although he
knew he would not be able to serve
the whole term, he decided to run
again in February because he enjoys
being on the congress.
First elected last October when a
graduating senior caused a vacancy,
Parkerson-Ripley said he had no
specific goal in running for re
election in February. ul didnt have
a specific goal, except that generally
I'm fiscally conservative and wanted
to promote that," he said.
Guy Lucas, a graduating senior
(Dist. 1 9), said his senior status made
him think twice before running for
the congress for the first time. But
Lucas said he decided to run because
the other candidates couldn't "accu

For the past three or four years,
many campuses have reported dra
matic increases in applications at a
time when the number of 18-year-olds
was expected to decline. The
surge continued this year.
At UNC, 15,400 students applied
for admission, the most in the
school's history and 12.8 percent
more than last year. They are
competing for 3,200 spaces.
But as applications increase, so do
standards. The average SAT score
for freshmen entering UNC has
jumped 60 to 70 points in the past
"That's a phenomenal increase,"
Strickland said. "It's simply the
result of application pressure. When
applications increase, you have a
larger number of good students."
, Strickland said he expected the
average SAT score for students
enrolling next fall to be about 1115
or 1120. The average for this yearns
freshman class is 1087.
