"Boy, you guys have really screwed up."
(print version)

image: Departments headerThe tough help out
Your "Minds at Work" feature (February/00) brought to mind an occasion when I was reading in that grand hall of Harper during grad student days, and noticed an undergraduate nearby who kept nodding off. [ MORE ]

The Student Representative Party, better known as SRP, is doing a '50s reprise--a party at which politics, culture, and music of the decade will be featured and appropriate connections highlighted for the 21st century. [ MORE ]
