The poll was conducted by the Student Senate to determine why such a tremendous degree of apathy exists within our student body and to see what type of activities, if any, students would like to see offered. Of the 166. students surveyed, only 46% said they attended ACC activities. Out of the 166 students, only 78 even responded to the question “If you don’t attend CC activities, why?’. Of those that did respond, a majority 33% cited “No Time’ as their reason. In response to. “What activities are you interested in?’ the Mov vie Discount received the highest per- centage rating with 67% express- ing an interest in it. Casino Night followed with 34% and Open Swim “at AHS received 33%. ances, a quite common group/ club activity, received only a 4% interest response of the -166 sur- veyed——6 people. (This might be telling the clubs something). je question “Would a var- sity sports program enhance stu- dent life?’ received a majority Opinion of 62%. verall, the poll results real- ly don’t offer any great conclu- sive answers as to how to alleviate the dreadful plague which has fallen upon our student body. This may. be due to the relatively small number of people surveyed. Perhaps the answer is a varsity Sports Program to get the student body active and involved. Per- haps the answers lie in the maj- ority 33% who responded “No Time” in which case maybe some- one should question why $22,000 in student money is given to the Student Activity Fund. ho knows what the answer is, and. . ...perhaps, no one cares.

Worried about Sidney’s lack of inspiration for a new work, the two seem to connive to appropriate a play idea from the handsome young student, Clifford Anderson. “Seem to” - on those words hinges an experience that has had theater audiences on the edge of their seats. ~ A limited number of free tickets. will be available to ACC students on a first come first serve basis.
