THE MORNING AFTER
ome people went to college
i to learn, and some went to
college to party. These two separate
groups didn't generally cause prob-
lems for each other. The problems
arose for those students who tried to
do both at once - having classes the
day after a party could be a hellish
experience. John Millican, a music
student, recalled one such event. "I
had this teacher in a 8:00 a.m. class
who liked to pace a lot. Well, one
night before his class I had a little too
much to drink, and having to watch

him pace back and forth for an hour,
first thing in the morning - it made
me seasick. I got ill. I had been out
since 2:00 the morning before, which
is not something I recommend."
Amazingly,John hadn't missed a class
at all this semester.
Missing classes was the most com-
mon after effect of too much party-
ing, however. Thad Scott, Conroe
sophomore, contended that the
morning after a party "You spend too
much time in the bathroom to be in
class. It's either that or you try to
sleep it off." He reported that his
roommate, after a particularly active
night, "was talking really loud in his
sleep, saying things that definitely
weren't in English. When the phone
rang, though, he vaulted out of his
top bunk, and I swear he flew across
the room. Thank god he didn't de-
Jimmy Smith, Killeen sophomore,
added that "If I get drunk on a school
night, I don't go to class. That's why
you're not supposed to drink on
school nights, I guess." He recalled
one particular morning when he woke
up in the bathtub. "Some friends were
just coming back from registration,
and I didn't even realize that registra-
tion had started yet. When I checked
in the book, I could barely read the
pages, but it said that I had to be
there at 12:00 - and it was already
11:45. Luckily, I got there in time."
So, the moral of the story seemed
to be: Just Say No on school nights.
