The Beatles said. it best: "All you need is
Perhaps they were thinking of the fiery, pas-
sionate love that makes you weak in the knees,
turns your stomach to pure Jell-O and trans-
forms your thoughts to mush.
Or maybe they were talking about that best-
friends kind of love in
which you and your partner
are finishing each others' Yo ha
sentences, sharing your
most intimate thoughts yourself:
over a candlelight dinner,
or just hanging around and want TO
enjoying each other's com- loVe ivil

Here at the University,
there is a little of everything on Cupid's
palette. And as this weekend marks yet another
Valentine's Day, students should know more
than what The Beatles tell them. Sure, all you
need is love. Heck - even affection, mutual
companionship or fool-around-friends would
be nice. The real questions are: What kind of
love are students looking for? And how, in such
a large and impersonal institution, do people
go about finding it?
What the 'U' is looking for
LSA junior Eric Patin, a resident of Luther
Co-op, found the
seeds of young
love "in a dri-
veway." For>{.
Patin, the

But for
like him-
self, Patin
said that his
four-step plan}
and a little bit of}
alcohol are ideal
in helping students'
love blossom.
"First, you need to seek
out the person you are chas-
ing and you need to get them
drunk," Patin said. "You will both

lose your inhibitions and you will express your
genuine feelings for each other. Once you
sober up the next day, you must see if she
remembers what you said.
"Then, there's step three," Patin said.
"Falling in love. You have to ask yourself:
Do I want to fall in love with this per-
son?" A

If the answer

re to ask
fall in

is "yes," students can
proceed to step
four, where "you
get married and
live the rest of
your life together.
This is the way to
find a life-long


relationship. Now
is the greatest
potential for find-
ing a mate," Patin
- Eric Patin said.
LSA junior Still, Patin stressed
the impracticality of his
plan on the University campus.
"Unfortunately, most people are looking to
have fun, to experience a lot of different peo-
ple," he said.
Unlike Patin, many students at the
University said they are not necessarily look-
ing for marriage or serious-relationship mater-
While LSA junior Chris Steves is currently
involved in a six-year relationship, which start-
ed in high school, he said that his situation is
somewhat unique to University students.
"What's going on with me is definitely rare,"
Steves said.

dent Anita Mohan

ferent people

Chris Smith, an
LSA first-year stu-
dent with a long-term
girlfriend, bluntly described
the University's social atmos-
phere. "It's more or less like a one-
night-stand place."
But some students are happy that they
have no need to take advantage of the atmo
LSA fifth-year senior Kristen Ruschiensk
who has been together with her boyfrie
since last March, said that a lot of the prc
lems stem from "the drought of eligib
boyfriend material." The selectio
Ruschiensky stressed, "is limited."
Still, some students don't even find the tin
to look at all. With her grueling acaden
schedule, one second-year Law student, w
recently started a relationship with a fello
Law student, said that most graduate studen
just don't have the time to actively seek ou

else other than another graduate student, somr
one who is familiar with the pressure."
