The best part of going away to college
is getting away from your parents. Once
students move-in to their residence halls
or apartments they can accomplish this
task by not answering phone calls,
emails, or door knocks. The closest thing
to a mother on this campus is a sorority
house mom. The Michigan Daily wanted
to find out what it is really like to be a
mom to more than 50 girls. The Daily
interviewed Michelle Harney, house
mom of Kappa Kappa Gamma, to find
the scoop on sorority life.
The Michigan Daily: How did you
decide to become a house mom?
Michelle Harney: I answered an
advertisement.
TMD: What did.vou do before you
were a house mom?
MH: I originally worked for restau-
rants and hotels.
TMD: How long have you been a
house mom?
MH: I've been with Kappa Kappa
Gamma since last Jantuary.
TMD: What's the best part of being a
house mom?
MH: Its never boring.
TMD: What's the funniest thing
vou've seen?
MH: Last week there were naked
boys doing push ups in the li\in room.
on the grand piano.
T1MD: What did you do about it'?
MH: I told them to leave. They
laughed and left within the next 3 min-
utes.
TMD: Do the uirls ever ask for advice
on stuff like homework or boys?
Mi: I try to avoid doinu homework
because it's been too long since I was in
school. They usually discuss boys with
their peers.r
TMD: What's the biggest complaint
about living in the house'?
MH: I miss having time off. I have to
be here 24/7 and I only get off one week-
end a month.
TMD: Where you surprised by Greek
life?
MH: I didn't have any expectations.
TMD: Do you feel a lot of responsi-
bility for the girls?
MH: At the beginning I feel like I

have to be responsible for everything,
but by the end I realize that the girls can
take care of themselves.
TMD: Do you think you see every-
thing bad that goes on?
MH: I probably see about half of
everything bad they do.
TMD: On a scale of I to 10 how bad
do you think your girls are?
MH: 7.5
TMD: Did the noise the girls made
during rush (ie. screaming and pounding
on the doors and windows) bother you'?
MH: You can't ask an old person that
question. If it annoyed you then it really
bothered me.
TMD: Would you tell people to let
their children rush'?
MH: I would see no reason not to.
Sororities and fraternities are not for
everyone, but it's a good experience.
TMD: Are you going to be sad when
the seniors graduate'?
MH: I haven't been there yet, but I am
sure I am definitely going to get upset in
April .
Unlike sororities, fraternities
don't have a house mom. The
Daily investigated thier idea of a
perfect house mom.

You're a Big Boy Now (1966) Francis
Ford Coppola, so I'm going to give it
to you straight. Lately your films have
been downright awful, and that editing
job you did on "Supernova" didn't
quite save the picture. Your daughter
directs better movies than you. Her
husband directs better movies than
you. Your nephew's onscreen alter-ego
directs better than you, and he only
does plays. His little one-act on
Watergate was 10 times better than
whichever Grisham book you adapted.
Go into a hole and don't come out
until you can give us the FFC of old
(read "Easy Rider, Raging Bull" if
needed to jog your memory) and start
directing good movies. Michigan
Theater. 4:10 p.m. $5.50.
