      Editorial: AIB should issue report on test bank progress

      Last spring, The Observer reported on the Academic Integrity Board's plans for a university-wide online test bank. In the article published on March 28, 2008, then-Academic Integrity Board chair Stephanie Ash said that the test bank would tentatively be available for use in fall 2008. (0) comments

      Rock for Doc a tribute to Doc Oc, excellence in teaching

      To the Editor: Mortar Board National Honor Society is hosting its fourth annual Rock for Doc concert celebration on Monday, April 6 in Thwing Ballroom.

      Scheduling summer classes not so easy

      To the Editor: Drawn by the colorful fliers and information packets dispersed all over campus, I decided I'd register for a summer class. As an engineer, I have to take ENGR 210: Circuits eventually; tuition is half-price off over the summer, and who doesn't love saving money? Seemed like a great deal to me. (0) comments

      As the weather gets warmer and the economy continues to tank, we'll be seeing many more bicycles on the road.

      Khmer Rouge trial will set paradigm for international justice

      Before I begin this week's analysis, I would like to take a moment to address the letter to the editor that was written in response to my last column, in which I called for military action in Sudan. Austin Ashwill urged me to take a deeper look at the wide range of effects that would result from military intervention. (0) comments

      Greece is destination not to be overlooked

      An important part of studying abroad is, obviously, studying. The last few weeks, I have been doing nothing but studying. The experience of going to a European university had taken over my adventurous spirit. However, as soon as the term ended, I found myself on a plane to some exciting European location and suddenly remembered that this was why most people study abroad in the first place. (0) comments

      Fox News, CNN both lack journalistic integrity

      As do many college students, I certainly I have my biases. I recently watched Glenn Beck of Fox News Channel berating a defenseless and clearly overmatched Connecticut State's Attorney on the AIG bonus scandal. I couldn't help but comment to my roommate that Fox News is a disgrace to journalistic integrity and anything but "fair and balanced," the network's slogan. (3) comments
