Opinion
Attention to detail is university policy
State Department safety warnings rightly end trip

Policies are generally enacted by the university to ensure the well-being of the general population. Curfews in dorms are to provide a safe environment for residents. No parking in certain zones guarantee a path for a fire truck if necessary. No funding student organization trips to countries where there are State Department-issued travel warnings because — well, you get the point.

The African Heritage Organization recently learned that its trip to Kenya had been canceled due to a university policy that prevents students, faculty and staff from using university funds for trips to areas with State Department-issued travel warnings. This particular warning was issued last September, urging Americans to avoid non-essential travel to Kenya because of terrorist threats.

Nothing could be better than the start of a new baseball season

There is just something about this time of year.
I don’t know if it is just something in the air or a change in the weather.
Tests cause chaos, deaths

My heart aches for the losses we suffer daily. Through my years in school, I have heard it too many times. “My second cousin’s uncle has died,” says one. “My car broke down by a biker bar, and they wouldn’t let me use the telephone until after they beat me,” says another. My own grandmothers have died more than 16 times each.
