As warm spring weather descends on campus, many University students have
no choice but to get a lot closer to a few choice members of the opposite sex.
Wann weather sets
campus hearts aflameU
after winter qmonths

ByElenaLipson
Daily Ars Wrie
Warmer temperatures and blos-
soming flowers are key ingredients
in a sweet recipe for love.
As spring makes its way to Ann
Arbor, many University students
and local residents are finding
themselves immersed in opportuni-
ties for love and lust. Welcome to
the season of the spring fling.
Spring offers a delightful alterna-
tive to the bitter winter months
when many were too cold to step far
outside the confines of warm
rooms, houses or libraries for an
extended period of time. In the
spring, however, people are every-
where, creating endless possibilities
to meet one's mate. Just look at
Casa Dominick's on a sunny after-
noon, when hoards of thirsty stu-
dents and locals pour in to enjoy
pitchers of sangria. Or consider the
large numbers of students frolicking
and socializing on the Diag.
Without a doubt, people are on the
loose.
While psychology Prof. Oscar
Barbarin did not know of any theo-
retical research to support the phe-
nomenon of springtime love, he did
offer a speculative explanation.
"Spring is a time of re-awaken-
ing," he said. "Longer days, (the
hope) for warmer weather. Many
people move from the doldrums of
winter and are uplifted by the
changing climactic and physical
environment, (which can have) a
positive emotional impact and a
positive physical effect."
In fact, there is some medical evi-
dence to support Barbarin's expla-

nation. During the winter months,
millions of people are affected by a
condition known as Seasonal
Affective Disorder in which lower
levels of sunlight alter the produc-
tion of brain chemicals and can lead
to depression, fatigue and over-eat-
ing. Usually, SAD is treated with
light therapy because supplemental
sunlight often returns brain chemi-
cals to their normal levels, which
alleviates depression.
Research thus makes it clear that
sunlight does indeed put people in a
better mood, which makes them
more sociable and increases their
chances for meeting that special
someone.
An LSA sophomore, who wished
to remain nameless, has witnessed
the phenomenon of springtime
sociability both in the streets of Ann
Arbor and in her own love life.
"From November to February,
people don't really know that
35,000 kids go to this school
because you see the same people,"
she said. "The weather makes you
dreary so you're not at your best."
But as spring rolls around, this
sophomore claimed, "People are
more social. The weather- makes
people smile, which makes them
more attractive.'
And she even admits to feeling
more attractive in the past month as
she recently embarked upon a jour-
ney that her friends have
termed,"March Madness."
"Nothing happened for me in the
winter," she explained. "Then dur-
ing spring break, it was like boom! I
met a new guy every weekend."
