J ' •• dents have started r iding motorcycles to sch ool. Som e p ack small mopeds and Honda 50's in the trunk of their cars, drive t o within five miles of campus , park on a side street, unload and two-wheel it the rest of the way. Others make the entire trip by motorcycle. There are special motorcycle parking areas all over the central earnpus - r ight next to classroom buildings. Students are expected to shut down when they come close enough to disturb classes in session - and they generally do just that. They "ark, pick up a few books at a nearby loc ker and walk to cla ss. The advent of the motorcy cle on t he college campus has not been I!l'eete d with scorn, but with envy. No Ford-driving - or even Corvettedriv ing - student turns up h is nose at the motorcyclist. Particularly since a good many of the motorcyclists are girls - attractive girls. Admittedly , some students from high-income families have had to adjust to the sight of a half-dozen students of both sexes ambling into class with books in one hand and helmets in the other. And it is a bi t disconcerting for some to sit next to a girl who slips black riding gloves, not w hi te dress gloves, out of her pu rs e when the bell rings. Bu t since most of the students w h o ri de motorcyclists are non-conformists concerned more with practi cality than appearance, the no n-cyclists can't afford t o criticize. It is the n onconformist who is generally the in tellectual. And whoever heard of calling a guy a " hood" or a "jer k" when he has just outscored you by 20 points on a tough exam? The riders do have a complaint or two themselves, though. They wish bicycle riders would stop parking in their places, and they w ish the school would redesign the book lockers. Most loc kers are too narrow for helmets with bubble sh ields attached .
