wild goose chase. An extra chal-
lenge to the search for food is the
obstacle course presented by noon-
time's long lines, through which
you must skillfully maneuver your
But if you're able to push your
way to the front of the lines, a wide,
array of food awaits. On any given
day, choices range from sloppy joe
sandwiches to tuna melts to "crab"
quiche. In general, the entrees are
eatable, as long as you follow the
"no red meat" rule, and avoid foods
that are especially greasy.
A large and fairly accessible
salad bar compliments the entr6e se-
lection. In addition, cold cuts, cheese
and bagels are available upon re-
quest. With some creativity, the
diner can create his or her own con-
coctions, using the microwave or
toaster. (Caution: only use the
toaster if you like your breads re-
ally dark, i.e. charred.)
But the best part of the South
Quad dining experience are the
desserts. There are usually two or
three choices, all equally fattening.
Rice Krispie treats and chocolate
peanut butter cookies are the tasti-
est, with fudge brownies falling
close behind.
The only warning we might issue
about the South Quad cafeteria is
not to eat there two days in a row,
lest the food become too familiar.
For example, country-style chicken
tends to reappear in the form of
chicken pot pie, and hamburgers are
reincarnated as spaghetti meat sauce.
But if you're from the old school
and still enjoy the hunter-gatherer
method of eating, South Quad is the
residence hall for you.
East Quad
If you are a meat and potatoes
type of person, forget about East
But if you're like Henry, and
consider tuna, potato pancakes,
quiche, and cottage cheese a balanced
meal, bring your meal card and your
appetite here.
The alternative food source of
the University Meal Plan, East
Quad is the established vegetarian
beachhead of the residence hall sys-
East Quad provides a "vegetarian
bar" for people who regularly don't
eat meat or are just disgusted by the
University's version of it.
Unfortunately, for a residence

hall touted for its vegetarian menu,
the amount of fresh fruit is limited
and the available fruit (read: green
bananas) was not appetizing. Fur-
thermore, the salad bar was limited,
and not fresh.
On the bright side, East Quad
provides pancakes and hashbrowns
for late-risers with no morning
classes - and for those who decide
to sleep through them.
The pleasant atmosphere is -en-
hanced by tasteful art, and varied
seating styles meet the needs of
large groups and those intimate
dorm lunches alike. 4
East Quad has its share of little
lunch time perks, which an informed
gourmand can spot. Chocolate sauce
is provided to supplement the often-
bland ice cream. Also, East Quad has
a juice machine - an uncommon fea-
ture in dorm cafes. (South Quad had
one two years ago, but it has been
defunct since last December.)
Henry, a pineapple addict, liked East
Quad's version of this exotic fruit,
even though it was canned.
A sporadic and flexible eater
will do well in East Quad. Those of
you who like square, all-American
meals should look elsewhere.
West Quad'
While West Quad's food was
more consistent - if not better -
than other residence halls', the ,at-
mosphere receives mixed reviews.,
The chicken patties - a safe bet
at any dorm - were very good here
as well. The sandwiches were sup-
plemented by a "chicken patty bar,"
which had plenty of fixings, includ-
ing fresh, green lettuce, tomatoes
and ketchup.
West Quad's salad bar is also
well-stocked, fresh, and green. It
holds two of Bethany's favorite
condiments, feta cheese and olives.
And West Quad offers the same
breakfast service as East Quad.
Unfortunately, the art and the
music were far more cheezy than the
alleged macaroni and cheese.
West Quad's unique family-style
tables receive mixed reviews. Being
the semi-hermit that he is, Henry
was appalled by the long tables,
which he sees as an invasion of pri-
vacy. Indeed, family-style tables do
not allow for a quiet, private con-
versation, or a browse through the
daily paper.
Despite this communal atmo-
sphere, lunchers can find a good
meal - and plenty of good company

Sandler also said that he thinks the Greek sys-
tem exploits money from its members and makes
them insecure and generally unhappy.
However, Cook is anything but unhappy.
"I love the Greek system," she said. "It's
made my best memories so far at college. How-
ever, it isn't always the easiest thing to first get
involved in or to belong to. It's a little expen-
sive, too. But everything is worth it. The benefits

are to numerous to count."
Cook added that she thinks everyone should
carefully consider Greek life before deciding
whether or not to go through rush.
Even in all his anti-Greek sentiment, Sandler
agreed with Cook.
"It's not for me or my friends, but some peo-
ple might like it," he conceded. "Everyone who
may be interested should give it a try and see for

"The first time I saw a Macintosh, I was
immediately hooked. It's a work of art. I saw
the student pricing and my next move
was obvious: get one.
"Some other computers are cheaper,
but they're a pain to leam, and working on
them can be a grueling experience.
Last year, a friend bought another kind
of computer against my advice and has used
it for maybe 15 hours.What a waste.
"Macintosh, on the other hand, is a
logical extension of the mind. It lets you
concentrate on what's in your paper, not on
how to get it on paper. You can create
professional-looking documents in
minutes, and you lose the fear of
learning new programs because they
all work in the same way

& Macintosh, there's no turning back"
Why do people love Macintosh*?
