Several students will compete for the title of “Mr. Lafayette” 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Farinon Center snack bar.

Entering its fourth year, the contest is similar to a beauty pageant. Contestants receive one to five points in each category: formal wear, pajamas, talent, and question and answer.

The winner will receive $50 and the runner-up $25.

Past talents have included magic, playing a musical instrument, comedy, or performing “stupid human tricks,” explains Kelly Stewart, president of the Residence Hall Council (RHC) Executive Board, which runs the event. Questions tend to be on the humorous side, such as: “If you could be any cartoon character, who would you be and why?” “Describe your ideal mate.” “If you had three wishes, what would they be?”

The panel of five to seven judges typically includes a dean, a professor, a resident adviser, and an audience member.

The other officers on the RHC board are Eric Ackerman, vice president; Aaron Jones, publicity chair; and Jason Salisbury, secretary/treasurer.
