Bush should try to stick to his guns
President shifts stance on Israel’s harsh policies

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s hostile policies have produced more and more conflict in an area of the world that is already rife with violence. President Bush has, in the past, taken the sensible steps to condemn such brutal actions, but his administration seems to be changing that position for what appears to be nothing more than election year politics.

While Israel unquestionably has the right to defend itself, Sharon’s attempt to disengage from Palestinian territories has been marked a controversial wall which amounts to nothing more than a land grab and two assassinations that have antagonized Muslims all over the world.

ROTC cadets soar higher

While graduation is important to many, it has many special meanings to TCU ROTC cadets. For our academic roles, it means an end of being a student and the beginning of being an alumnus or alumnae. For our social roles, it means the end of adolescence and the beginning of adulthood. For Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC cadets, it means the end of being a cadet and the beginning of being a commissioned officer. The changes for ROTC cadets may seem insignificant for some, but they mean more than a simple role change.
My TCU journey through the Skiff

Every semester since I came to TCU, I have read the columns of Skiff seniors soaking up advice or just getting a good laugh. To me, the columns are more than just words from strangers. They’re my friends. Some of them, my best friends.
