Seven in the morning.

Sarah Signorino, an English senior and
resident adviser in Blanding Tower, rises
from an all-too—comfortable slumber to
exercise at Kirwan II.

From there, she attends classes, and
returns at 2 pin, to check her e-mail at the
residence hall’s front desk. She relaxes, lis—
tens to a few of her 30 residents beat anx-
iously on her door in hope of hearing the
wisdom of an adviser who has spent four
years in the tower.

Every Tuesday, Signorino and the other
RAs make three rounds each night in pairs.
On weekdays they stay indoors from 4 pm.
to 12 a.m. on a six-person rotation.

“I almost uit this past fall,” said Sig-
norino, who :ilso serves as assistant adviser
for the tower’s residence hall overnment.
“It was draining me emotional y; I couldn’t
find the stren h to be supportive of the
pee le on my oor.”

“We have a couple of weekends a month
free so we can go home, do schoolwork,”
she said. “We’re free to not have to stay in

Trainees must attend a course in mental
hygiene for one semester for 2 1/2 hours.
The class is tau ht by Melanie Tyner-Wil-
son, Pat Whit ow, Tony Ralph and Jim
Wims, director of residence life, another
former trench worker.

Wims started at Kent State about two
years after the infamous killin of four stu—
dent protesters in 1970. In this first two
years as RA of Kent State’s Dunbar Hall,
Wims was in charge of nearly 170 students.

He climbed the administrative ranks to
Coordinator of University Conduct Sys-
tems, and Director of Student and Staff

A course in “mental hygiene” may sound
like a no—brain sleeping pill, but Wims said
the subject matter, which deals with suicide
intervention, substance abuse and conflict
management resolution, provides RAs with
crucial information.

“The topics really speak to the kinds of
situations RAs are going to encounter on a
day-to-day basis,” he said.

residence hall system, “I look for individu-
als that take initiative, help others, have

Chinese year can vary in length but is usually
between 12 and 13 months long, and begins and
ends sometime in February, he said.

The Chinese New Year celebrates the legend of
Xi, the monster that represents the year, Lieu said.




Contributing Writer

About 300 Chinese students and faculty will come
together this weekend to celebrate Chinese New
Year with friends and family.

The Chinese Students and Scholars Association
will be throwing a party at the Baptist Student
Union to celebrate the Chinese New Year from 5:30
to 10 pm. Saturday.

Chemistry graduate student Yue Lieu said the
Chinese New Year for Chinese is much like Thanks-
giving for Americans.

The New Year is a time for a reunion of family
and friends, he said.

Ligan Cai, a junior, said many Chinese students
and faculty here miss the chance to get together with
their friends and family. To Cai, the party offers
those people a chance to come together and ease the

“I’m always away from family,” he said. “I’m
going to call them tomorrow and wish them luck.”

Lieu said the party also gives Chinese students the
opportunity to meet and get to know other Chinese
students on campus.

The celebration starts with a Chinese celebration
dinner provided by the Panda Garden. The dinner
will include 16 different Chinese dishes, including
everything from fried rice to traditional Chinese

“We have really great Chinese food,” Cai said. “If
you come, you can get a feeling of what it is like
studying abroad.”

Karaoke, dancing, games and a lucky prize draw-
ing will follow the dinner. A tape will be shown of
the celebration in China, which actually occurs the
day before.

The Chinese year is based on the lunar cycle, not

Xi comes out each new year‘s to pester the people,
he said. So the people celebrate and light firecrackers
to scare the monster away.

Also, the Chinese use a 12-year cycle, each year
named after an animal, Cai said.

Saturday the Chinese will be celebrating the end
of the year of the rat and the beginning of the year of
the ox.

The 12 years fall in the order of rat, ox, tiger, rab-
bit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken,
dog and pig, Cai said.

Minorities and women serve as the “miner's

everyone, .1 University of l’cnnsylvaiua law profes-
sor told a crowd of several hundred in Memorial
Hall last night.

lain Gunner focused her argument on the edu-
cational system in a lecture titlcd “Rt-framing the
Affirmative Action Debate “

“\Vc- may be using the wrong instruments to
measure cvcryone's capacity to succeed," Guinier
said, referring to standardized tests such as the
SAT, Glx‘l’ and LSAT. “\Yc are calling this merit
but It actually functions as a test of wealth."

Blacks and Latinos tend to score lower on these
types of tests. she said, not because of their race
but because oftlic'ir class. :\ disprtiportionatc num—

lalzc-wisc. the difficulties minorities and women

cational environment, not incapable students

-\nd the problem hurts all students, not just the
“cinarics.”v she said. \Vhitcs from low economic
classes are at the same disadvantage as minorities.

“ llic' poverty of whites is hidden by the afflu—
ence of other whites," ( iuiiucr said.

StandardI/cd tests are coachablc, Gumier said,
incanlng students can be taught to do well on
them. \Vcalthy parents can afford to enroll their

Gutnier talked about .1 sct of twins lll Florida
who scored perfect SAT scores. When the New
\ ork limes asked their mother why they had been
so successful, she responded that they had been
taking the test since seventh grade.

Gmnicr said that studies have shown standard—
llt‘ll tests to be inefficient predictors of a student's
performance, random guessing would yield nearly-
as—accuratc predictions.

Gumicr was not afforded the chance to publicly

“Maybe they didn't want you in \Vas'hington.
but we‘re delighted to have you here," l".dwards
said to Guinicr as she came onto the stage.

The Blazer Lecture Series was endowed in 1948
by Paul Blazer, a founder ofAshland Oil Inc, and
