Well, that was a fun four years. Remember when there was a Taco Bell on campus? And that time when those dudes (and dudettes) from SWA sat in the admissions office? Oh, the memories. Frankly, however, there is only one thing that really unifies the Class of 2008: Facebook.
Over the weekend, Student Union Vice President of Finance Yewande Alimi informed KWUR that SU’s preliminary budget for KWUR for the 2008-2009 school year would be $20,577. This is a drop-off from the $30,000 KWUR received in last year’s cuts, and a far cry from the $50,000 from two years ago.
At least Tim Russert was the best in his field. “Meet the Press?” Man, that’s legendary. Russert’s a titan. Sure, the conventional wisdom is that he was an awful choice for Commencement speaker, but hey, it could have been worse. It could have been just another pundit who just loves hearing himself speak, like Bill O’Reilly or Chris Matthews.
There is exactly zero doubt in my mind that this year’s commencement speaker has already been chosen. I have even less doubt that I’ll be disappointed in the choice. Now, I’ve been wrong many times in my three and a half years here, and in this matter, I’d love to be wrong again.
The Girl Talk tasering incident was almost bound to happen. Girl Talk is known for rowdy shows and being drunk at the show and dancing your ass off sounds a lot more appealing than being sober and only dancing half your ass off.
Of course, the Gargoyle’s (probably University-mandated) no-rowdiness policy makes it an awful venue for Girl Talk.
Fall break is coming up and you know what that means. It’s time for everybody to complain about how fall break is worthless. Like the swallows flying to Capistrano and tuition rising, it’s a yearly tradition with no end in the foreseeable future.
It’s okay to make yourself look pretty every now and then, campus. But every week? Multiple times a week? You’re a whore, campus! You don’t need to do this.
You can attract prospective freshmen just how you are. You don’t need to plant new roses right before they come.
McDonald’s adds a new size to their menu.
A school in a medium-sized metropolis, well known for its medical school but strong in other areas as well in the top 20 in the US News rankings, but struggling to get into the top 10. Obviously, that applies to Wash. U. But you, the perceptive reader, know I’m getting at something else also.
