Welcome to Willy's Place Once upon a time students could go to the bottom of the Campus Center and make a feast out of vending machine goodies. Everything from yogurt to soggy hamburgers could be pur- chased through those metal food storage cases. But PPM food service, which took over Carter Cafeteria, saw the need for a snack bar to give students more freedom. The idea of a snack bar was not new, but the school never found the funding for the bar. PPM decided to build the snack bar and provided the necessary funding. Aug. 28, 1982, was the opening of ACU's snack bar with its decor of little Italy, 'Texas country, Mexico and a '20s ice cream parlor. "Willys Place," was the name given to the snack bar in honor of mascot Willy Wildcat. The snack bar provided an alternative to Bean food. and meal cards or money could be used to purchase such foods as burritos, nachos, bak- ed potatoes or banana splits. Mark Clark, assistant manager of Willys Place, said that business began slowly but picked up as the year went by. Advantages of the snack bar were its convenience and variety. However, students with meal cards for the Bean were allowed only 32.15 at Willys Place when a meal at the Bean was all you could eat for 33.15. The snack bar closed 10 minutes before Chapel leaving many starved students hungry for a mid-morning doughnut. Even though the service was sometimes slow, Willys Place gave a better choice of food than those quarter- eating vending machines, -W Kristy Pendergmxi. lPensh Study: ine inougmi Dates, pledging, Sing Song, basketball games, exercising, friends, football games, TV, hobbies, letters - they all kept you from study- ing. So, you brought out the midnight oil. No, on second thought, you just brewed lots of cof- fee and brought out the No-Doze. You started out with so much time to spare where did it go? "I watched M"'A"'S"'H,l' said sophomore joanie Samson. Even though you tried to avoid the books, research papers, homework and tests never went away. One great escape idea was to go to the park, catch some rays and study for a while. When you woke up two hours later, however, you were burned to a crisp and had accomplished nothing. Then you faced the dwindling GPA, but not even that could motivate you to really dig into 142 f van those books. So, off to the library you went, and while you were there did you notice the people who always looked to see if anyone was watching them study! What about the freshman women who pretended to be absorbed in the Abilene Reporter-News but were secretly scoping out all the males entering and departing the library? That was studying, too. Then, of course, you knew the student who appeared to be studying but really worked crosswords puzzles in the corner of the ground floor till closing time. For the procrastinators everywhere, cold showers, loud music and strong caffeine could not get the job done. Ann Howard, sophomore from Fort Worth, said, "I just don't sleep." Theres an alternative. -Q K riszy Pemlergmfr 4 4 l 4 l l i Trying to "It's Sunday nightg the Bean is closed. M roommate hasn't returned from his trip t, Dallas yet, and after six grueling hours of supi' slam basketball fwith a break for church, t coursel, I am starving. "What am I gonna do?

Making ends meet when y0u're a studer probably wasn't always that bad, but sometime you had to tighten your belt more than if yo were trying to squeeze into a pair of pants tw sizes too small. A ItIere's a rundown of several ideas for stre' ching the budget that you might have overlool ed last year. For starters you needed to sit back an realize the best dates weren't free, but free datel could be very fun. You could have gone t Willhair Park and watched the squirrels watc you, or taken your sweetheart on a sightseein tour of wooded Abilene.
