The thrill of witnessing her first
Naked Mile as a freshman seemed to
intoxicate LSA senior Erin Patrick.
Erin dashed down South University.
oblivious to the clothes that secretly
jumped from her backpack onto the
sidewalk. She was ecstatic to meet her
big sister at the end. LSA alum Sarah
Patrick had not been aware of her lit-
tle sister's nearly delusional excite-
ment and had entrusted her clothes to
Erin at the beginning of the race.
Although freshmen usually carry
the latest model of indestructible
backpacks, Erin managed to lose the
sweaters, the shirts and, most impor-
tantly, the keys of her sister's
boyfriend. Crushed by her inability to
revive the Pony Express, Erin
attempted to return to South
University and to follow her Hansel
and Gretel trail. T-shirts and jeans
covered South University like leaves
in fall, and Erin unfortunately raked
up the wrong clothes.
"My sister had to walk home in her
Beisy Barbour apron. She was pissed
off!" Erin recalled.
Despite inevitable tiffs between
siblings, especially quarrels like this
one the Patrick sisters had involving
potential frostbite at the Naked Mile,
most students agreed that they got
along better with their siblings once
they both attended the University.
When Mom and Dad are in the
other room, siblings often fight.
When Mom and Dad are in another
city, college siblings often bond. The
University's campus provides unlimit-
ed opportunities - from exhilarating
football games at the Big House tc
relaxing nights at the Brown Jug - to
foster irreplaceable memories and
unending inspirations for future suc-
cesses and endeavors.
Siblings can become college bud-
dies. The tired words, "Be nice to
your sister," are no longer influential.
Siblings become friends by choice
instead of by obligation. Words like
"protect your sister's clothes" become
LSA senior Corey Fernandez cele-
brates the friendship he has with twin
brother LSA senior Chad Fernandez.
"We've never thrown one punch at
each other. I'm not lying. We do our
fighting whenever we're put in the
position to defend one another. For
the rest of our lives, he has my back
and I have his." Corey said.
But a case of she-has-my
bovfriend-and-I-have-hers may throw
a twist into the harmonious sibling
"We thought for a few minutes that
we may have kissed the same boy,"
School of Nursing alum Elise
Peterson said about an unfortunate
circumstance involving herself and
her sister LSA junior Erica Peterson.
University siblings are willing to
share almost everything, but they still
participate in different activities to
maintain their individuality.
"Elise was definitely a role model
for activities," Erica said. "I joined
the Greek system because of her, but
her presence made it hard to choose a

Although Elise and Erica visit
daily, LSA senior Amy Leenhouts and
little sister LSA sophomore Lisa
Leenhouts see each other less at
school than at home. As older sisters,
Elise and Amy both view their sister-
ly roles as mothering and friendly.
However,Amy might not receive a
Mother's Day card any time soon.
"I was supposed to bring Lisa back
to school after Thanksgiving break,
and I forgot to. My dad had to bring
her back to school. That was kind of
funny," Amy said.
