Triple and quad oecpMts adjust to cramped
Cy CAROLE FERGUSON
The University started with only
one student and no housing prob
lems. Since that time, student housing
has gone from doubles to triples and
Sharing dormitory quarters with
more than one roommate isn't always
' easy, especially if it is the first time
a student has had to share a room.
. There arc triple rooms all over the
campus, but the only quads are in
Cobb and Spencer, two women's
dormitories on the north side of
, Collin Rustin, Student Housing's
associate director of administration,
said the current quads were once
larger rooms that housed three
students. These rooms were con
verted in 1981 and 1982 to meet an
increased demand for student
Female students may feel the
housing crunch more than the male
students due to the increasing number
of freshmen women admitted each
year to the University.
Denise Williams, a freshman living
in a Cobb quad, said she expected
the room to be very crowded.
"But I'm really not disappointed,"
she said. "It's very spacious."
Williams has more extra space
because there are only three persons
living iri the room that is supposed
to house four students. The fourth
roommate did not show up this
. Williams said she did not know her
'two roommates, Christy .Goodgiori
and Maria Fernandez De Castro,
who are both friends from Wrights-
; ville Beach.
';V Williams said they're all getting
? along well so far, but that four people
would be too many for the room.
Many residents of Cobb' quads who
actually had three-other roommates
did not find the. rooms quite as
, comfortable and spacious.
"It's crowded," Wendy Lippard, a
from page 1
freshman from Statesville, said.
"You're here with three other people.
It's hard to get along with all three
at the same time."
However, Lippard did not find the
rooming situation to have only bad
"If there are only two people, then
they have more responsibility to bring
things like carpet and curtains," she
said. "I only brought a stereo and a
Sharing is a key factor to living
harmoniously in a crowded dorm
room. There is not enough room for
Two of Lippard's roommates,
Christine Holladay and Jennie Star
ling, brought the . curtains, carpet,
television and refrigerator. Lippard
said they all share a lot.
Most quad dwellers, . like other
students living in dormitories, miss
the conveniences of home more than
r a quiet, private bedroom. .
"I miss my private bathroom at
home," Starling said.
Cooperation and consideration are
other necessary qualities for adapting
to triple and quad life.
Everyday activities such as watch
ing television and listening to the
radio can cause major conflicts when
three or four people share the same

According to Rustin, the cost for
one semester's accommodations in a
quad is usually $588 per person, while
a space in a triple may cost $503-5549
per semester. A standard double
room can cost $629-5734 per
"The quads and triples on north
campus are larger," Rustin said. This
accounts for the higher price. '
A quad in Spencer is $686 per
semester, but the rooms are larger
than those reserved for quads in
Cobb. ;' .:; !
There are some triples for men in1
Avery and Teague and a few on NortH
Campus, but there are no quads'
available. - ' I

McEnally added that another
possible contributing factor in Mon
day's market decline was the ability

out of common stocks," he said.
Tiryakian said index options
"wreaked havoc" on the market.
Index options are based on the overall
condition of the market. People
speculating on the market buy
baskets of stocks.
Tiryakian said those people who
predicted the market would rebound
from Friday's losses were caught
holding large baskets of stocks
Monday and had to sell.
"It was a record," Tiryakian said,
adding that the speed with which the
market rebounded Tuesday and
Wednesday is an indicator that the
;market will stabilize.
