- Arm yourself with the facts (Amanda Greco Assistant Scene editor)
With the approaching United States presidential elections at hand and my personal involvement with the media, I thought it would be appropriate if I addressed my beliefs regarding the role of media in relation to government. Let me state for the record, though, that I am neither a government major nor a very politically-minded person.
- Let sick students through the gate! (Letter to the Editor )
Going to the Health Center for medical treatment is apparently no easy task. For those who do not already know, off-campus students must walk half a mile from the parking lots or wait at the call box for security to provide a ride (assuming one is too ill to walk). In no case is a student allowed to drive to the building — this requires permitting the student with the privilege of driving a vehicle on campus.
- Vote for Hanover/Micek (Endorsement )
With enthusiasm, a commitment to empowering students and diversity of experience, Hunt Hanover and John Micek have the creative, realistic vision to lead Notre Dame's student government and student body in 2000-01.
- SMC voters: Quit whining, act like ladies (Letter to the Editor )
We have always been proud to attend Saint Mary's College. It is an institution that is founded on Catholic moral beliefs and a strong sense of unity throughout the student body. However the recent student body president and vice president elections have brought forth a completely opposite atmosphere to our campus.
- Thanks for gay speak-out (Letter to the Editor )
I am writing to applaud Saint Mary's for having the decency to allow its lesbian alumnae the opportunity to come back on campus to share their stories.

- Provost addresses Faculty Senate on increasing diversity (By JOSH BOURGEIOS Assistant News Editor)

- Lecture: More teen pregnancies lead to more abortions (By KEVIN SCHUMM News Writer)
Over the past three decades, changing attitudes attributed to the sexual revolution have led Americans to view abortion as a "fail-safe contraceptive," said Clarke Forsythe, president of Americans United for Life (AUL).
- Students criticize ND's character (By ANNE MARIE MATTINGLY Associate News Editor)
Notre Dame administrators are too controlling and judgmental, said students at an open forum Wednesday sponsored by the ad hoc committee on Academic and Student Life.
- Speakers discuss social justice (By MOLLY McVOY News Writer)

- Paul Rathburn brings Shakespearean theater into the mainstream of Michiana and Notre Dame culture with the Summer Shakespeare Festival 2000. (By JEAN McCUE Scene Writer)
Culture, at Notre Dame? Enthusiasm for the fine arts might seem laughable at a university better known for its football team than its drama program, where "WWF Smackdown" has a larger following than "Masterpiece Theatre." But Paul Rathburn, an award-winning faculty member in the English department, has been working with a dedicated team of administrators, professors, theater professionals, alumni, students and community volunteers to change this campus culture phobia.
- He said (Scott Little )
Can girls and guys be friends? This question has plagued the world since the beginning of time.
- She said (Ericka Ravettine )
The age-old question that resonates through the romantic comedy "When Harry met Sally" is can men and women be friends? In the movie, Billy Crystal states that the problem with male and female relationships is the sexual tension which lies between them and makes it impossible to maintain a friendship. The movie also states that once a man and woman succumb to their desire for one another, the friendship is lost. So is that true here at Notre Dame and Saint Mary's?
- What's there to `Scream' about? (By CASEY K. McCLUSKEY Scene Movie Critic)
"So what's your favorite scary movie?" For many college students this question is an easy one. Everyone grew up watching the "Friday the 13th" and "Halloween" series and had a favorite. In the "Scream" series, this is the question that can save or doom the next victim.
- Moral lessons abound in Stone's `Wall Street' (V. Van Buren Giles Scene Movie Critic)
I can remember being very young and hearing that "Wall Street" was going to premiere on network television. Being in a family that did not have cable until 1996, any major motion picture debut on the "basic channels" was always a big deal in our household. I watched for a while, but without bloodshed, or any serious explosions, I soon tuned out and resorted to the immediate enjoyment of my Nintendo gaming system.
