hold the fast on the same day
throughout the University to increase
its effectiveness, addbd Pillai.
To qualify for the fast, a dorm must
have at least 30 percent of its residen-
ts sign up. Couzens Hall last year had
the highest rate of participation with

tries to come to the Monday night;
dances every week for the "pure en-
joyment involving something outside
of classes and sorority."
Most of the students have had little
