Stayin' alive
Forty students danced the night, morning, and afternoon away for 18 hours straight April 19-20. The dance marathon raised $5,500 for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Participating groups paid $150 and unregistered dancers made a small donation at the door. To keep dancers alive and well, the Council on University Programming provided ice cream and nonalcoholic cocktails, board games and Play-Doh for brief breaks, and a nurse if anyone fainted.

Tuition on the rise
The College will increase both tuition and room and board by 5 percent next year. Average undergraduate tuition will rise $1,302 to $27,324, and room and board will increase $415 to $8,727. Most competitive private colleges have raised costs 4-5 percent.

Just squeaking by
The Corporation for National and Community Service reports that 65 percent of the nation's top 51 universities were below the national average-12 percent or less-in how much federal work-study funds went to community service in1999-2000. Chicago spent just over 7 percent, the new required minimum.

Ringo is the star
Mock Trial's Team Ringo Starr took third place at this year's National Championship, the team's highest ranking in its five-year history.

The Suspect elect
It's a landslide: the Unusual Suspects won the Student Government election with twice as many votes as the closest competitors. The Suspects, a.k.a. second-year Enrique Gomez, third-year Jerome Van Der Ghinst, and second-year Jasmine Harris, promise to communicate better with students-especially minority students-and simplify the application process for Recognized Student Organizations.
