Remember when college housing meant separate dormitories for men and women, suits and dresses required at dinner and 9 p.m. curfews on week nights? That's not the case anymore-in most colleges and universi- W inning lottery numbers CHICAGO (UPI) - Patrick O'Brien of Sterling won $1,000 a month for life Friday in the Illinois State Lottery's Super Slam game.

Dummer of Rock-ford. ties and Northern Illinois Uni versity is no exception. Relaxation of rules and broader lifestyle options are credited with the increased demand for on -campus housing. Dr. Donald Buckner, director of student housing services at NIU, says the school's housing facilities, which number 6,700 spaces, are filled. Here, there is even a short waiting list. All of NIU's eight dormitories are open, including those which were closed or used for other purposes last year. "The off-campus housing situation is even somewhat tight, especially for older male graduate students and those with families," Buckner said. Options for-dormitory residents include co-educational floors, single rooms, meal plan choices and room and room mate choices. Expanded this year are the offerings of special study floors and "over 21" floors. The study floor is designed for students who desire an area which is specially suited for study. Rules for those floors are set up to include a quieter atmosphere, with less extracurricular activities. The "over-21" floors are designed for graduate and older undergraduate students who desire to stay with others their own age. Also included this year is a dormitory floor for foreign language students. Buckner said students there can receive actual practice in conversing in their foreign languages with others who share the same interest. Students in German, French and Spanish may participate in this option. But why the surge back to on-campus housing? "The economy has played a part in the increase." Buckner said. "Residence hall costs have held much below comparable living facilities." "There seems to be less of a drive to go off and live in an apartment - students enjoy being involved in campus life," he added. DEVAL DRIVE IN THEATRE 1100 aik. Syc. Id.
