SA Notes

Senate staffer ejected for calling colleague a “bastard” Executive Vice President Anyah Dembling removed a Senate staff member Monday night for calling a senator a “bastard” on his online blog.

Column: Join a real fraternity

Many people have misconceptions about fraternity life. Some think we all live in an “Animal House” atmosphere, have no respect for property or our fellow students, or that we are disinterested in the lives of people outside our own organizations. Most people who get to know fraternity life are surprised to find out that these […]

Film Review: “Rock School”

Few are immune to the allure of performing in a rock ‘n’ roll band: the blinding lights, the roar of the crowd, the sweet after-parties. Sure, it takes years of hard work and slogging on the road to achieve this success, but many willing to try. Of course, few succeed. Then there are the kids […]

In the dumps: Students wade through trash for a cause

Graduate student Matthew Tisdale started last weekend the way he starts many weekends: hoping the industrial-strength garbage compactor he was standing in did not turn on. Perhaps because he had done it 25 times before last Friday night, the 2003 Columbian College of Arts and Sciences graduate was not as worried about being crushed by […]
