Editorial: New resolutions for old problems

| (0) comments

As a new year and semester dawns on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, we wonder what New Year's resolutions the university community might be making. Overall, we're sure CWRU will continue its resolution to think beyond the possible - and we hope that others in the community will resolve to do the same.

Resolved to Responsibility

Whereas it is clear from my experience that these things are veritable death traps waiting to carry you into the flaming fires of Hell.

Restoring Sanity

Like any good upperclassman, I believe in waiting until the last minute to fulfill general degree requirements. That's four PHED classes senior year. That's SAGES my last semester. And that's how I ended up in a 100-level political science class with one of my favorite professors, discussing the Constitution.
