Omnipotent Providers The early morning hours found me stumbling into my room — a lan- guishing vestige of " Quarter-Beer Night. " I came in, passed out and lay co- matose for five minutes before a rather boisterous knock was issued upon my door. I fetched my last waning reserves of energy and raised the blinds only to find myself glaring at an equally mindless in- toxicant. With listless abandon, he mut- tered those nerve-cringing, pester- ing, festering words which all RA ' s ultimately hear — " Will you please open my door? " To be sure, a football player in one dorm lost his key no less than twelve times. By paying for duplicates he had funded two study breaks and a new Softball bat. Resident Advisors perform hand- fuls of important duties around campus and in the Halls. To resi- dents, an RA becomes emulated as the noble, omnipotent provider of information, advice, wisdom and ex- perience. Perhaps a little less disheartening is the RA ' s role as floor supervisor, programmer, and organizer. Here, an RA ' s duties run the gamut from disciplining pranksters to conjuring up creative programming activities like the " I Love Lucy " party where everyone came dressed as Fred or Ethel Mertz. For many RA ' s, the job offers not only a number of enjoyable activi- ties, but also some of the fondest memories of college life. There is weekend duty (usually acquired after several trade-offs within the staff) where one RA is condemned to a night in the dorm, alone and with little to do. There are the notorious " work- shops " which drag RA ' s away a week early from the beaches in the summer and the ski slopes in the winter. Actually, they allow RA ' s to acquire the best mattress, chair, and There is no glory, there is no glamour, just a bunch of lightbulbs to be replaced . . . desk on the floor before any resi- dents arrive. In all honesty, it seems an RA earns his pay primarily through on- going battles with " Maintenance. " In fact, the most reliable measure of an RA ' s competence, efficiency and ability pivots around his her ability to wield influence over maintenance and repairs in the dorm. There is no glory, there is no glamor, just a bunch of light bulbs to be replaced, doors to be unlocked, and repairs to be reported. More im- portantly, though, there are friends to be made and good times to be shared. ■■y»-««r;i,i, i,« „mfmtf, 66 R.A. ' s

Student Foundation Works for Tulane The Tulane Student Foundation is the link connecting present and past students of the University. It is the only organization at Tulane in which students work directly with alumni in various functions. Student Foundation also strives to bring stu- dents and faculty closer together. Student Foundation ' s primary concern is providing the students, staff, and alumni of the University a real look at Tulane. The hard work of the organization ' s members, led by their president, Robert Ratelle, was reflected in functions like Su- perfest, the Homecoming Dance, Hotline, Spring Ring, and Senior week. The Homecoming dance on Fri- day, November 13, 1981, kicked off Student Foundation ' s busiest week. Everyone at the sold-out dance boo- gied to the music of Jubilation! as this year ' s court was presented. Su- perfest, the homecoming extrava- ganza, was the next day, game day. Irma Thomas, New Orleans ' own Queen of Soul, highlighted the day with a high-spirited concert. Every- one enjoyed the Fest, except maybe President Eamon Kelly and a few others who found out they were all wet by being on the receiving end of three wet sponges for 25 cents. Student Foundation sponsors an annual fundraising phonathon, Hot- line, during three weeks in the Fall. Spring Ring is the next semester ' s phonathon. Terri Margolin chaired Hotline this year, and Amy Pepper organized Spring Ring. Hotline raised over $65,000 in pledges, making it an important source of alumni funds. The stu- dents or groups that raised the most money were awarded a prize as in- centive to help. The prize this year, a color television set, went to the Kap- pas. Pi Phi placed second and SAE came in third. Amy Pepper explained that " Spring Ring is not run on the same scale as Hotline. It is only open to the different schools in the Universi- ty which compete against each other to raise funds from their own alum- ni. " The remaining members of the Student Foundation board this year were Chris Borah, vice president of student affairs; Missy Cohen, vice president of administration; Marga- ret Gavel, treasurer; Peggy Basic, secretary; and Dolly Chisholm, staff advisor. Terry Jones, director of Tu- lane ' s alumni fund, helps coordinate the phonathon. 68 Student Foundation
