University student keeps it 'Real' in final round

"What happens when you put seven strangers in a house and people stop being polite and start being real?" It is nearly a rite of passage for everyone under the age of 25 to know not only where this familiar quote comes from, but also seven different answers to what really does happen. When thousands of teens and early 20-somethings try out for these seven coveted spots, however, for those invited aboard, the ride is likely to be just as exciting, as fourth-year College student Candice Cook is finding out. Cook follows in the footsteps of fourth-year College student Rebecca Lord, who starred in "Real World 7," set in Seattle.

Late-night observations at Rotunda become enlightening, entertaining

Everyone knows what happens on a typical Saturday night at about 2:30 a.m. on the Lawn. It is a tradition that University students hold near and dear to their rears -- streaking. The recent incidences of students being cited by the police for participating in this coveted weekend ritual, however, make one wonder if enthusiasm for the practice has fizzled.

Giving thanks for a return to school

Like so many other students, I awoke Monday morning reeling from the paradox of Thanksgiving Break: after five days at home, I need a vacation from my vacation. I assure you, I approached the holiday with the best intentions.
