Low, Teresa Lowry,john Lucke, Marty Luttrell, Suzanne Lyda,-Iana Lyons, Alfred Lyons, Jacqueline Mackey, Michelle Starting at the bottom The only way to reach the top of a mountain is to start at the bottom and work your way slowly upward. Similarly, the way to the top of a business is to start at an entry-level position and climb through the ranks. And much to the dismay of many students, the only way to become a graduate is to start at the bottom of the heap as a "fish" Beginning the trek to the top of the academic ladder is a try- ing task for most freshmen. Making that transition from being the top dog in high school to nothing more than a nobody is pretty hard to swallow - especially if you were the captain of the football team, student body president or class favorite. It's difficult going from being a good man on the football team to having to prove yourself to guys who are just as good - or better - than you are, said Keith Myer, freshman from Carroltori. !m,wana-W.

She came from a school "where everyone knew everybody," she said. "Sometimes I feel like I don't belong here," Tawn said. But through activities like Freshman Follies and Sing Song she has met logs of other freshmen who often feel the same way. Most freshmen agreed that freshman orientation and Fish Camp got them off to a good start at ACU.-Iohnna Friddell, a freshman radio-television major from Nashville, Tenn., said she was homesick at Fish Camp, but the upperclassman counselors were encouraging and related experiences of when they were freshmen that were comforting to hear, said johnna. john Slaughter, a freshman math and computer science major from Houston, said he didn't have much trouble adjusting to ACU. He introduced himself to people and ran for freshman president. "You have to step out on a limb to try to meet peo- ple," he said. But others aren't always as outgoing, and a lot of freshmen sit in their dorm rooms not knowing anyone but their roommate. Sheryl Mann, a freshman nursing major from Harlingen, said he spent a lot of time in her room feeling alone. "It took me nearly a whole semester to feel at home at ACU," said Sheryl. But she said she learned that the best way not to meet people is to stay in your room. She said some of the best places to meet new friends are standing in the Bean line and eating in the Bean. Laurie Wilson, a pre-law major from Houston, agreed that freshmen shouldn't stay in their rooms all the time. She said she would encourage incoming freshmen to be in Freshman Follies and Sing Song. "I was scared when I first came to ACU. I wasn't sure how I would meet people," Laurie said, But the many freshman activities made it easier to meet others, she said. So don't despair if you're at the bottom now, the top of the mountain is in sight. Graduation is another year closer, and the trek will be much more pleasant if you'll only leave your fears - and your dorm room - behind. -Andrea Cannedy Freshmen f 73
