EDITORIAL: Snow Job?

Did you go to your classes Monday? If you didn't, we couldn't blame you. Walkways and roads around campus were still covered with inches of snow and ice days after the weekend blizzard that dumped about a foot of snow on Fairfield. Of course, not many could have predicted getting buried under 12 inches of snow just days into December, but winter weather in New England is not so far-fetched.

EDITORIAL: A time for thanks

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we are reminded of those mandatory "What are you thankful for?" assignments we encountered every November growing up. As much as we have bemoaned things like this over the years, we think it is still a worthwhile undertaking if done with originality and thought.

EDITORIAL: Security going too far

Every student on this campus should be thankful for Fairfield University's Security Department.

Unfortunately, only a meager amount of Fairfield students bothered to show up to the socially conscious "E-race-ism" event in the campus center on Monday.

EDITORIAL: A fond farewell to the father few knew

Rev. Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J. certainly kept himself busy during his 25 year tenure as Fairfield's president. The Fairfield of 2003 is a different institution from the Fairfield of 1979. Since then, Fairfield has seen a huge expansion and renovation of school buildings and facilities.

EDITORIAL: Re-evaluate evaluations

At the end of every semester, we students do work in class that is not on any syllabus. We spend a lot of time and thought filling out evaluations of courses we have taken. We consider the task to be a serious one, and we think the information we provide in these evaluations is important.

EDITORIAL: Net nuisance

The Internet headaches that greeted us all upon arrival at Fairfield have largely disappeared. Computing and Network Services (CNS) has done a superb job of purging the virus from the network and installing free up-to-date anti-virus software on every student's computer.
