April 5,1995 6 Campus Extras Sophomore experiences Meredith again by Arinn Dixon Saturday was a fun day. It was the day we had “Experience Meredith” here on campus. I was supposed to set up the Herald table by 11:45 a.m., so at 11:30 a.nx I gathered up my Herald editions and my sign-up sheet, and I made my way to the courtyard. The weather was cool and cloudy with these really annoying gusts of wind that kept blowing away the pa pers that I had set up so nicely . For the first twenty minutes of “Experience Meredith,” Shannon Peterson and I stood around (we weren’t allowed to sit) and shivered and wondered if any one would show up. There looked to be about 25 Meredith students and about five high- Alumnae helps guide Meredith through Board contributed by Stephanie Conger SGA reporter Jean Cooper, chairperson of stu dent development on the Board of Trustees, graduated from Meredith with a bachelor of science in music and later received a master of arts in liberal studies. She is happily married, a mother of two, and a grandmother of four. When asked what has had the most impact on her life, she replies that Meredith has. Since she graduated. Cooper has volunteered much time and effort to Meredith. Her involve ment after her graduation began in the early eighties as a member of the alumni association. Through this, she served as chair for two campaigns in the re gion in which she resides. She also was strongly involved in the making of a video of the oral history of Meredith College alumni for the archives. Be cause of her hard woric and dedication in the alumni association, she received the Distinguished Alumnae Award. When asked to name her fondest .'nemory of her years as a student at ,*leredith, she remembers an organ .-ecital that she gave. All of her family i-'i d friends were able to come see and t ALUMNAE page seven schoolers milling around. I was just beginning to worry that I was going to have to give my little “Come join the Herald staff next year” speech over and over to the same five people when all of a sudden the floodgates opened, and people started pouring in. It was ama2ing. The lines at the food tables formed like ma^c. Families spread blaiv kets on the grass and ate and met other soon-to-be Meredith families. The sun decided it was time to come on out, and everyone took off their jackets and got another cup of lemonade. The Bathtub Ring stepped up to the microphones that were set up in front of the dining hall steps and sang all their favorite tunes, much to the delight of the crowd. Prospective Meredith students walked around the courtyard and talked to current students about dif ferent organizations and how to gen erally get involved at Meredith. It was a beautiful day that really showed off all of Meredith’s assets. I looked at all the young, bright high school seniors, and I realized that next year was going to be great for them. I realized that they were Meredith’s future. And I looked at the gorgeous, blooming trees and the fine, old buildings in the court yard and thought about how lucky I was to attend a college like this one. I just hope those incoming freshmen come to realize that, too. Kathi Merrell and Pam Goodwin win Roommate Award without being roomies! by Melissa Cloer Pam Goodwin and Kathi Merrell won the campus-wide roommate award Wed., March 22. The room mate game was designed after “The Newlywed Game” with three stages: competing j^ainst your hall, your dorm, and campus-wide. The catch about these two girls is that they aren’t roommates, they’re friends. Kathi and Pam have known each other since October and have Liccome the best of friends. They said that during spring break they learned alotabout each other while in Florida. They learned the color of each other's toothbrush, home phone numbers, and dream cars, which all paid off because those were some of the ques tions asked during the game. When I asked them about the game Kathi said, ”It [the game] started as a joke, to see if we could do it because our roommates weren’t here, and we won! ” She also told me that the hardest question was about home phone numbers. Pam stated,” I thought it was funny that we won, seeing as how we aren’t even room mates. ” For winning first place they received a $10 gift certificate for dinner at the Varsity and two free movie passes. I asked them if next year they would be rooming together and go for the championship again and Kathi told me, “ Next year will be hard because 1 am going to another col lege, but will still be in Raleigh.” Pam said that although she’ll miss Kathi not being around every day,” Kathi is a great friend and I know that she’ll always be there for me.” compiled by Clarky Lucas • Anything Goes will be performed at Thompson Theatre at NCSU on April 5-8 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8.50 for general public, $7.50 for faculty, staff, senior citizens and students, and $4.50 for all NCSU students.
