November 1,1995 2 Campus Opinion Editorial Meredith creates sisterhood It is the first week of November and we all know what that means - It’s Cornhuskin’ time. Throughout this week, competi tion will brew within the Meredith campus gates. Juniors and freshmen will team together as the juniors guide-their new little sisters into new experi ences. Seniors and sophomores will work together to make their last Corn huskin’ together the most memorable one. In the past, the competition be tween these classes has become quite intense, making the competition more like a fight rather than a friendly chal lenge. Because this is the 50th Corn huskin’ Anniversary, 1 propose that all of the classes keep in mind what Meredith College is based on - sister hood. Wlien the winners are announced late Friday night at the amphitheater, all of the freshmen, sophomores, jun iors and seniors will still be bonded as students of Meredith College. Because as sad as it may seeiji, we are all going to have to graduate from this angel farm that we call home and the only thing that will unify us physi cally in the working world is our Meredith College rings. This summer 1 was approached in two unusual places because an alumna spotted my ring. One was on the shore of Emerald Isle, North Carolina and the other was in a store in Soho, New York. Funny thing is, it did not matter who won the Cornhuskin’ competi tion when these alumnae were here. All that matters is that we could relate to each other and feel the bond of sisterhood that this college cre ates. Ghosts on campus... Aaaag! by: Ginny Bonkemeyer Late at night in Meredith’s dorms have you ever heard creaking, moan ing or rustling? Has a door ever moved? Have you seen mysterious lights? If so, don’t be alarmed. Meredith has its share of ghosts on campus. There are many gliost stories and rumors going around campus, but I was able to narrow it down to sev eral stories. The most well-known haunt is 4th Brewer. According to rumor, a student hanged herself on 4th Brewer and haunts the hall to this day. Moaning fills the silence - though I’m told she stops if you ask her to - doors close, lights turn on and off and objects move. Another story involves the ghost of Johnson Hall. This spook fright ened a security guard years ago when he heard running and laughter, but could not find a source. After asking the “student” to come downstairs, the guard heard footsteps on the stairs and felt a hand on his shoulder. No one was there. Though Chief Shattuck told me “Now, I don’t believe in ghosts,” he admitted that he had heard of a ghost in Jones auditorium, and that when he had to do rounds, he was uneasy. My personal favorite Meredith ghost story is the tree-climbing ghost. There is apparently a ghostly apparition that is in the habit of scaling the tree behind Stringfield dorm and looking into stu dents’ windows. (Do you close your blinds at night?) My loyalties will always remain with our little friend who came to be known as Casper in my 1st Vann bathroom last year. Casper would move the bathroom door and cast shadowy lights around the bathroom at night, but he always kept us company. Meredith is filled with history, traditions and surprises - so watch out for things that go bump in the night! •• v> Mermth EeraM ' \ . v„,Ashie|' : Copy Editor,. +/■*■ +>+>44 +>+,(+ +M+ +>+>+’' +>+,.«,» +>+ ■” '' Teattites — — Jcrisa Bixoor ' : +>'+.,•+ +>+,.++ +>+,++,.+ +>.r,^>+ +>+,+ +-K+ + Badness Eyfortot¥;>,. jKinabettf'ZSucker ' , ' ' ^ : Eacid^ — ; Editorial'K>lley: " , , yW.
