WSAP Needs Volunteers
WSAP may go on the air, if it can find
space and enough student support.
According to Beverle Bloch, who is spear
heading the drive to revive the dormant
station, “The most important things that
have to be done are to sec how many
students arc interested in getting the station
back on the air, and finding enough space to
set up a studio.”
Future plans might include getting a
transmitter so that WSAP could be broad
cast to the community instead of over the

"A Second Chance?!'
Nikki G. Holloway
at 8 p.m. in Mecklenburg
Lounge, so be there.
To start the year out with a
bang, and show you just how
active the Business Club will
be this year, we arc sponsoring
a campus-wide “Bringing
back The Days of Summer
Throwdown” on October 18
in Farrago with Mixin’ Dixin,
a hype D.J. from Myrtle Beach,
and featuring a female and male
swimsuit contest with a $50
prize to each winner!!!
I interviewed five guys at St. Andrews College to get
the inside dope on what guys were really thinking. The
guys were Rick, Chuck, Wiggy, Rod and a fifth junior
who for personal reasons preferred to remain anonymous.
For all intents and purposes we shall call him Zeke.
It seems that most guys on campus see the word
“relationship” as a four-letter word. A contagious disease
and no one has had his shots.
1 asked “Zeke” what he thought about relationships,
and he said: “I’m not afraid of relationships... they’re one
of the only valuable things there is... it’s something that
takes a lot of work, it’s something to be treasured.”
On the other hand, Wiggy commented, “I don’t believe
in commitments. They’re a waste of time and money...
99% of the time they comc to an end.” ’
More in between, Rick said, “They’re healthy in a
sense...they make time fly by...but you shouldn’t get so
committed... leave room for yourself.”
Before going off to college, some people do one of
three things. One, they totally terminate the relationship
or two, they decide to pretend they’re not 500 miles apart
and that they really are only a phone call away, or the third
and probably the most popular alternative — decide to
“see” other people and resume the relationship over Christ
mas, spring and summer break.
For those students who return to the living and decide
to return to the dating game, college life totally revamps
their social life.
Said Zeke, on the subject, “You learn a lot more about
girls. You stop worrying about how you appear to others.
You develop more and learn from other people.”
Rod agreed, saying, “...[You] find out what kind of
person you are. You become more independent.”
I’d have to agree with them there. Since coming to St.
Andrews, 1 wouldn’t say I’ve actually “found” myself or
anything, but I’ve learned a lot more about guys and
relationships and more importantly. I’ve learned that
independence is a positive necessity, and being able to
exert my independence has helped me develop into a!T
better person...but enough of that SAGE journal filler.
1 believe I would be correct in saying that sex is present
on campus. Now, I’ve always been under the assumption
that all girls held their virginity near and dear to their
heart as something sacred, something to be treasured. 1
thought that guys, on the other hand, looked at sex as
something totally “two dogs in a yard” physical. 1 was
informed that sex can be divided into two groups:
“f ” and “making-love”.
Rick explains that, “F is physical and making love
is, like, when passion builds up inside.”
Chuck also agreed, adding, “It’s [sex] a pretty emo
tional thing... something special shared between two
Well, I swear, I know this is the,njnj;ti«sJJi^*^jJ^/^^'
new, sensitive, more mature male, but I.'r6aJlj^4iyiiS.^^^y
guys cared so much. I guess I’ve just men'ill
No matter. I’ve been set straight by these new and im
proved Meek men.
I’ve heard how guys have “been with” a girl one night
and the next morning, it’s like, “Oh, excuse me, do I
Of coursc none of the guys have ever done such a thing,
but they tried to offer reasons as to why such a thing
Chuck summarized for the whole group, “Sometimes,
it feels awkward, like maybe you didn’t want it to happen,
or you’re having second thoughts and you regret it.” I had
to admit it was a feasible answer, but he wasn’t finished
yet. “Sometimes, girls can be the coldest. In fact girls have
an incredible rumor mill. Guys don’t spread rumors in tt;
big way.”Sorry, but I’m going to have to slightlyi dts-■
agree-Guys don’t talk in a big way?/Not! Sorry, bilc thaitf
is not true. Guys can spread rumors like mono. Yeah girl's
do too, but they don’t make up things and brag-n-boast,
to the same extent that guys do.
At any rate. I’ve certainly learned a lot about guys that
I didn’t know before. Myths have been terminated. Ste
reotypes broken-and I’ve learned that guys actually do
have feelings, that they can be romantic and lastly, but
more importantly, not all guys are dogs.
P.S. After writing this article I was somewhat sur
prised. My first couple of weeks I’ve had some distasteful
experiences in the guy department, and I’ve been known
to badmouth their whole gender and just blowijthem off,
but,if these guys were really being honest with me, maybe
I d better be nice and start giving guys a second chance.
After all, not all guys are dogs.
