Ueet Elack-eyed Sue. This gal 
may be Maryland's state- flower, but 
Sue is like any 
other girl aboat 
to enter Marylind 
U» as a new stu- 
dent • She har. tiie 
same clothing Iv.ts, 
revised and edi"-ad 
by a practical 
mother, a fin- 
ancially skeptical 
fat her I and a v^ise 
She has the same 
stomach pangs as she thinks of sor- 
ority rushing, 8 ;00 classes, and 
Saturday night dates* In short, 
Sue has the same problems that you, 
as a new student will have* 

colleo-e friend. 


Her first big concern is where 
and how she will live. The dorm 
assigned to Sue is very similar to 
the other four women' s dorms on 
campus: it houses about 140 girls j 
has a spacious lobby; contains a 
basement equipped with laundering 
facilities, public phones, and candy 
and fruit juice machines. There is 
a large rec room where Sue can enter- 
tain visitors with a ping-pong game 


rV-Bhow^ior piano jam-session# 

Sue's room is on the second 
floor, so with a shout of, "Man 
on secondi", Sue and her folks pro- 
ceed to unload pillow, bed-clothes, 
blankets, spread, rugs, curtains, 
and clothes from the car and start 
the long haul upstairs* An hour 
later the weary workers push the bed 
into place, plug the radio and alarm 
clock (into a newly acquired exten- 
sion cord), and collapse on 3ue*s 
roommate* s bed to survey the four 
walls that Sue will call home during 
the coming year. 

Assue's parents are leaving, 
they meet the housemother who ex- 
plains the dorm rules: quiet. 

hours for 
study, Monday 
night dorm 
meetings, meal- 
time, and the 
dorm judicial 
board. After 
a final fare- 

well to her parents, S^ue dashes 
upstairs to avjait her roommate. 


Ove'r half of SueVs freshmen Will h«^ I>ay dodgers 

and live at home* They may com- 
mute to the University by public 
trainsportation, in their own carst 

or a car 
pool. They 
will find a 
desk at re- 
set up ttd 
help them 
find rides 
if they 
haven't been 

successful yet in finding trans- 
portation. They may put a lock on 
one of the lockers in the Education 
or BPA building to keep books or a 
lunch* Daydodgers may bring 
their lunch and eat in the Rec Kail 
or the Dairy* Of course they may 
buy lunch in the dining hall cafe- 
teria, rec hall, dairy or the drug- 
store if they v^ish. 


Sue begins the long process of 

unpacking, with that harrible fe.,ii'i^ 
of soraetning forgotten* Ab isne •^s'^.gs 

up skirts and folds sweaters, Sus's 

mind -.vanders to the fall football 

games and informal fraternity parties. 

Her green formal brings thoughts; !'f 

the Pan-hel pledge dance, homecojuing 


reek-end, fraternity formals, and 
Rossboroagh • eek-end. Jeans and 
sweatshirts for picnics at '>reen- 
belt are stashed a\':ay; then as 3ue 
pldces saddles, loafers, and heels 
into her shoe bag, she remembers 
the forgotten: RaIN".VEAHI I .Vhere 
are the boots, slicker, and um- 
bFella? ^uick, a note to motherl 
Sue finishes her unpacking by hang» 
ing her prized possession, THE suit, 
in her closet. Sue may wear The 
Suit to basketball games, boxing 
matches, Convocation exercisesi 
the movies, church, and all inbe- 
tv.'een occasions that don't re- 
quire dressy clothes or jeans* 

■Vith a usual frown, Sue- takes 
out the envelope -A'ith her monthly 
\ allowance 

in it. ■ 
Whether it 
v;ill be 
for shampoo, 
club dues, 
.ectioh, s'tamps, snacksi 
cigarettes, and cokes will be up 
to Sue. and her feather* 


So Sue sits and waitsc Her 
companion for the year should be 
moving in soon and togethe*r thcce 
will be registration, mail from 
home, their personal conference 

with the Dean of '.Vomen, Saturday 
classes, phone calls from the • 
current man, study for finals, and 
all the other activities that will 
make the coming year one that 
Black-eyed Sue will never forget.
