      Editorial: Administration should take responsibility for CSP

      Since 1997, the College Scholars Program (CSP) has provided a small group of undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in a four-semester, 12-credit-hour, living-learning community. But since the implementation of SAGES in 2005, administrators have questioned the utility of the program, which, like SAGES, is seminar-based. (0) comments

      Students find motivation to serve in local, international efforts

      In 1974, the American Psychiatric Association removed the term homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. By that time, Case Western Reserve University already had a sanctioned gay rights group on campus, the Gay Activist Alliance (GAA). (0) comments

      Test bank not issue of Greeks versus non-Greeks

      To the Editor: Frustration with The Observer and their perpetual inaccurate reporting compels me to write. Gillian Seaman's article "University-wide test bank still in development" and the editorial in last week's Observer are both laced with inaccurate assertions and misrepresentations of myself and the Academic Integrity Board.

      Community Supported Agriculture benefits both consumers, farmers

      Tired of the overpriced, wilted greens and rotten tomatoes you find yourself relentlessly purchasing at Dave's or Giant Eagle? Feeling pressured to meet your recommended daily vitamin intake, but see none of the fresh, crispy produce that you would love to crunch into? It may be about time that students look toward other, more reliable sources for their grocery needs. (0) comments

      Don't let weather dictate your mood

      Did you enjoy the weather last week? Spend a little extra time outside? Maybe even put away the winter gear? Sucker. Did you forget already that April is the great battle month, where winter and spring engage in an epic tug-of-war for the rights to Cleveland's climate? The less-than-fortunate events of this week probably reminded you. (0) comments

      Progress on test bank available

      To the Editor: After reading last week's Observer I had to decide whether or not the unfounded statements regarding the Academic Integrity Board even merited a response. The articles written ("University-wide test bank still in development" and "AIB should issue report on test bank progress") contain solely opinions; there is little accurate information contained within them, and what is true is distorted beyond recognition.

      Coverage of AIB was slanted

      To the Editor: The Observer has recently addressed the issue of the Academic Integrity Board's proposed test bank, through both an editorial and a news story. I am amused by the editorial's calls for the board to be more accountable to its constituency - not because this is a poor idea, but because those who call for it have demonstrated their own lack of research, integrity, and honesty.
