RPS not keeping students in mind

There is one fact everyone on this campus can attest to -- college students have erratic schedules. Yet time and time again, Residential Programs and Services has seemingly ignored this fact in its practices. Just when dorm residents thought they'd achieved some flexibility with the meal plan, RPS changed the hours at its food courts again. Yes, Wright is still open until midnight, but most of the restaurants there now close at 8 p.m., leaving few choices by midnight. And that is only one example.

Bravo to the world leaders of the United Nations Millennium Summit who called for a renewed commitment to bringing hope and stability to Africa. They've taken the first step.

I will instead focus on one issue of utmost importance to this campus, this University and this nation: the future of the arts and humanities.

The dissertation: It arrives at the end of every graduate student's curriculum and separates the potential doctoral students from the students who are considered "A.B.D." ' all but dissertation.

Students move out of lounges
