Bombers should be more ambitious

By | Apr 29, 2010

I just read the “College should compete with top-ranked teams” guest commentary, and I couldn’t agree more with the author. Ever since coming to the U.S. to go to IC, come March, my roommate and I would be fervently following March Madness and cheering for Syracuse since we feel the team represents “our region.” But…

Classes need to be more hands-on

By | Apr 15, 2010

Classes emphasizing community-based learning have had an outstanding impact on my being.
