All-male dorm boasts
tranquility and diversity
By ELYSE KIMMELMAN
When someone says dormitory living,
the University's Fletcher Hall usually
doesn't come to mind. But, located
behind the Intramural Sports Building
between Hoover and Sybil Streets,
Fletcher Hall really does exist.
With only 69 residents, the all-male
dorm is probably one of the Univer-
sity's "best kept secrets," said resident
director Jinny Bartel, a graduate
FLETCHER Hall is the only dorm on
campus that is predominantly upper-
classmen and graduate students. This
year no freshmen live there and two-
thirds of the residents are gradute
Although it is small, for the most
part, residents are happy living in Flet-
cher. There is a waiting list to get into
the dorm, and only two students are
trying to move out, Bartel said.
"Everyone knows each other and
there is a spirit of camraderie," Bartel
"YOU GET to know all the people and
it's like livinig in a little frat," added
dorm president Mike Schule, LSA
Some students choose to live in Flet-
cher because it is not right in the center
of campus. "It's a nice place to come
home to and doesn't feel like I'm at
school," said resident and LSA
sophomore Eric Burton.
Fletcher is also the most inexpensive
dorm on campus. Although there is no
meal plan, students can purchase meal
cards to use at other residence halls, or
use the kitchen in the dorm.
THE AVERAGE age of residents is 22
and half of the residents are foreign
students, which create an atmosphere
different than in any other dorm.
One benefit of this diverse at-
mosphere, according to resident Chris
Priebe, a junior in the business school,
is that he can go down to the kitchen
about 12 o'clock every night and find
foreign students cooking dishes from
The dorm is quiet because of the size
and nature of the students. Most of the
graduate students are tired of large
parties and want a quiet place where
they can study.
"If you want to party then do it
some place else," said one resident who
asked to remain anonymous.
Students who live in Fletcher do have
a social life, however. Dorm activities
include pre-football game parties, in-
formal get-togethers, and intramural

She said a "fantastic" number of
people opposed her hiring to narrate
Igor Stravinsky's "Oedipus Rex."
"We expected protest, but nothing
like this," she said a booking agent told
her a month before the performance.
She quoted him as saying: "What will
you do if you're shot?"
"I think that was a bit excessive,
because what can you do," she said.

REDGRAVE SPARKED an uproar in
1978 when she branded Jewish demon-
strators "Zionist hoodlums" after
receiving an Academy Award.
She became a center of controversy
again in 1980 when she played a Jewish
survivor of a Nazi death camp in the
television movie "Playing for Time."
A member of the British left-wing
Workers Revolutionary Party, she has
narrated two documentaries by the
PLO and accused Israel of crimes
against Palestinians that "hideously
mirror the crimes of the Nazis."
Redgrave, famous for her roles in
such movies as "Camelot" and
"Julia," has sued for breach of contract
- $31,000 for the six performaces
scheduled for New York City's Car-
negie Hall and western Massacheuset-
ts' Tanglewood - and $5 million for
violation of her civil rights.
