The Last Leg

It's a warm April afternoon. The sun is turned on full blast, its intensity melting away midterm stress and post-Spring Break blues.

Joining Forces

Students who were awake early Friday morning over spring break may have caught a glimpse of fourth-year College student Mark O'Brien on NBC's "Today Show." O'Brien said he was right over Al Roker's shoulder when Roker finished the outdoor weather segment.

A bite on the wild side

Strange eaters beware: we know you're out there. Some of you stalk through Clemons library, armed with a bag full of raw vegetables and a super-sized chocolate bar.

A Wahoo walk through time

Over 100 years ago, the University had a different face: In the Civil War era, upon hearing that Fort Sumter had surrendered in 1861, students in the Southern Guard broke into the Rotunda at night and, climbing along the dome, grasping a lightning rod, hung a hand-sewn Confederate flag. Sixteen years later, Brooks Hall, home today to the anthropology department and various studio art classes, served as a natural history museum -- complete with a dinosaur skeleton and a Siberian mammoth. University history has sparked plenty of debate among scholars and students alike, but a new book adds pictures to the University's storied past.

Media Center Director Rick Provine said there already is "tremendous interest" in the Center, and the facility will "create an environment more conducive to the study of media." The Center, which is located on the third floor of Clemons Library, will consolidate the library's media resources into one floor.
