A few days ago, I was in the library when I made eye contact with a face that was not foreign to my memory. Well, over a year ago we had engaged in a short conversation pertaining to an interest that we both shared. As I saw my path to the exit being blocked by this person whom I will call "Pat...

I felt like Father Winter was sending me a message. It was a nasty but to the point message in the form of harsh negative temperatures and back wrenching snow shoveling. "Go West. Goooo West. San Diego..." The whispering voice would wake me up at night and cause me to bolt upright in my bunk. Go West? San...

Claypool? Rock on! J-5? Rock on! Lou Reed? Rock on! Anywhere from between twenty-five to fifty dollars for a show at your school? It would seem this does not rock nearly as hard. "We should be getting a bigger discount as students because our student organizations are putting the shows on for us...

This is a joke. Don't take it seriously. A'ight, ya'll. For real, there are some chumps walkin' amongst us, trying to be like me.

"Hi, I was wondering who I could talk to about studying abroad in Ireland?" I ask a shorthaired woman sitting behind a side desk at the Study Abroad Office in Living and Learning section B.

Dear Steve (is it okay if I call you Steve?), How's it going? Now that the small talk is out of the way, let's get serious. I'd like to learn karate, but I can't afford the classes, this is where you come in. Since you already know karate it'll be really easy for you to teach me. Right now I'm betwe...

With another semester coming to a close we are all asking the same questions: Can professors be bought, or do they have the uncompromising convictions/morals of Steven Segall in Under Siege 2: Dark Territory?
