Tradition hits rock bottom

Tradition hits rock bottom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff There is something different about the lawn in front of Founders Hall; it is not like the rest of the grass on campus, it is dead. If the dead grass was not a big enough eyesore there is also an abnormal sized rock on the grass that sits on top of a slab of concrete.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I actually liked the article “Give diversity groups a chance” (March 11). To me, the article spoke truth.

Lauren Creiman, LV Life Editor As I stood in front of the doors to Campus Center Ballroom A (with two balloons in hand) and listened to the cheers coming from inside, I felt nervous.
