10 Things You Need to Know About Dating a
1. You will leam to hate the
drive between Meredith and
State (or vice versa).
This drive, although filled
with anticipation at first, quickly be
comes monotonous and tedious. You
can only drive down Western Bou
levard, Hillsborough Street, or Dan
Allen Drive so many times before you
realize that you could make the trek in
2. You are always a State fan on
No matter your personal
athletic affinity for the Blue Devils,
Demon Deacons, Pirates, Tarheels, or
any other team, you will find yourself
donning State apparel and singing the
“Red and White Song” along with your
significant other at sporting events.
3. No matter your skin complex
ion, the color red suits you.
Those koozies, shorts, sweat
shirts, and t-shirts (or any State gear,
for that matter) that you have been
wanting all come in the same color.
For a little variety, try black or white.
4. Bricks are your best friends.
From the infamous Brickyard
to just about every building on cam
pus, brick is everywhere. The sooner
you can stop questioning the Univer-

sity’s aesthetic decisions, the better. I
hope you’re not allergic to clay.
5. Eventually you will get lost.
State is divided into five cam
puses; Meredith consists of just one.
Simple math dictates that sooner or
later you will fall victim to the one-way
streets and traffic circles of State. Just
go with the flow and eventually you’ll
make your way back to Pullen, Hills
borough, or Western. They’ll get you
6. That little State ID can go a
Need a book or video that our
library does not have? Trying to work
out when the Meredith gym isn’t open?
Want to receive discounts at Raleigh-
area businesses? Need to score tickets
for the big game? Simply borrow your
beau’s ID, and see where it takes you!
7. Those cows you see outside the
Vet School are good for some
Ice cream that is! Whether you
are headed to D. H. Hill Library to do
some late-night studying, to Talley Stu
dent Center to meet up with friends, or
to the refreshment stand to grab a bite
to eat during a basketball or football
game, try the University’s ice cream,
made from State cow milk.
Fm'a new Meredith College freshman, and ever since I arrived on campus, I \ e
heard a lot of people talking about you. They told me to write you here with
my queMion(s). So, who the heck are you, and what can you do for me?
Dear Not-So-Knowledgeable Newbie. v‘
Welcome to Meredith College! I’m glad you wrote to me—as the official advice;,;
columnist for the Meredith Herald, I have a duty to answer all of your burn-
ing questions to the best of my ability. I can’t tell you who I really am, just ;
as I don’t expect you to tell me who you are, but eveiyone knorVs me as Gigi.
I’m a Meredith student who gives other students advice when they write to
me about their personal problems. Most students contact me by placing their ''
anonymous letters in a black, plastic box that says “Ask Gigi”; the box is lo
cated in Johnson Hail. Each week I publish one answered letter in the Mer- ^
ijedith Herald, and the next one could be yours. I look forward to hearing from '
’ / Yours truly,
8. The fast food
Let’s face it:
Most guys hate to
cook. Therefore, be
prepared to eat in
the Atrium between
classes, the Wolves’
Den when a round of
video games or table
tennis is in order, or
Bojangles’ on game day.
9. Parking is a pain.
If you think parking at Meredith
is a torturous experience, wait until you
deal with the parallel spaces, decks, and
meters at State. To save you grief (and
possibly a $40 ticket), let your boyfriend
be a gentleman and pick you up.
10. Contrary to popular belief,
