Assembly negotiated the Universi-
ty's first fall study break for the 2002

of Regents approved the break as a
chance for students "to have a four
to five-day weekend for intense
studying and paper writing," the
Daily reported.
Despite the emphasis on using
the break for academic work, Law
student Chris Brown said students
primarilyouse it for other reasons.

officers found three, kegs of beer,

the fraternity's_ national chapter
and the Interfraternity Council.

ternity accepts responsibility for
anyone on its property," though an
anonymous Theta Chi brother said
the person who yelled the racial
slurs was not a member of the fra-

LSA freshman Jessica Petrovski fought she
crowds to purchase test hooks at Ulrich's on
