Next provost will not deal with athletics
The provost will no longer play a major role in the direction of athletics, a change that puts TCU more in line with other university administrations.

Chancellor Victor Boschini said he will deal directly with athletics when geology chairman Nowell Donovan takes over as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs, eliminating one of the current duties of the position.

Provost William Koehler, who retires at the end of the semester, said the chancellor has always been involved in the athletics reporting structure. Now, athletics director Eric Hyman will only report to Boschini.

Students enjoy giving back to community over Spring Break

Oh, the joys of Spring Break. Lounging around, sucking on tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them, and enjoying the view on some exotic beach might just be the dream of every college student. When most of us think about Spring Break, we think of hot bodies, girls gone wild and an abject lack of supervision, but a new revolution is occurring on college campuses across America — the Service Revolution.
New Meg Ryan film is fair

“Against The Ropes,” starring Meg Ryan and Omar Epps, is based on the true story of Jackie Kallen, the first — and most successful — female boxing manager in the history of the sport, and her first boxer under contract.
