Ms. Tipton, who has been
working at UNC-C for four years,
did a waste audit here at St. An
drews and found that we have a
good start for our recycling pro

or improvement. Right now
most St. Andrews students re
cycle only cans, glass, and plas
tics if anything at all, because that
IS all that can be placed in the blue
bins. However, much more can

percent of all their recycling.
During her waste audit here, Ms.
Tipton found that, even though
there is a cardboard recycling
dumpster behind SAGA that is
available to all students and fac
ulty, there was a trash dumpster
behind Morgan Jones with an
abundance of cardboard in it.
Granville dorm has under
taken its own recycling program.
Students living in that dorm have

In an effort to truly tap the
thoughts of S.A. students, SGA
hosted two Focus Group sessions
last week in Granville Main
Lounge. Subjects ranged from
residential life and academics to
student involvement and financial
problems. The “fruits” of the
meeting were then presented to
Dean Nance and President Board.
Original topics for discussion
stemmed from previous residence
A second set of meetings will
be held sometime after Spring
Break which Nance and Board are
expected to attend.
“The meetings were very pro
ductive,” one attendee com

70’s Party Rocks
BY TERRA MCVOY
Things were rocking even sur
prisingly early on Saturday,
March 2, in Orange’s tin-foiled
courtyard this weekend. The D.J.
was pumping disco favorites by
ABBA, the Jackson Five and Par
liament at the expected time of 9
p.m. Later, he would enthusiasti
cally repeat these same singles
muhiple times during the night.
Folks didn’t seem much to mind.
Certainly the crowd was rock
ing. Students brought cameras,
video recorders and a variety of
70’s paraphernalia (Orange’s own
Stan Dura was rumored to be
handing out treats which Mr. Ed
would find irresistible) to keep
track of this wild ride, but the cos
tumes were certainly the best part
of the evening...
St. Andrews citizens rarely
hold back when it comes to get
ting flamboyant (especially when
there’s alcohol involved), and
Vinny Eamma, Andee LagoJa.
Jamie Peroni, Pam and Jose Ralat,
Colleen Cunningham, Neil Davis,
Josh Newman, Melanie Olkowski
and Christie Peach were, by far,
some of the best dressed that
Certain faculty members of
ten come out of their bookshelves
when they catch word of a hot
party, and we were lucky to have
Dick Prust, Dennis McCracken
and Bill Throop as part of our
gyrating throngs on Saturday.
Of course, all of this is gear
ing us up for The Party of the
Year, Extravaganza on April 11-
13, but more fun can also be had
at the Women’s Soccer Team
Eighties party this Saturday in the
Belk Main Lounge.
