- A History Lesson (Kevin Berchou sports copy editor)
I'll be the first to admit I was skeptical.
- Women, minorities need representation (Bridget O'Connor Guest Columnist)
It has not been a good couple of weeks for Notre Dame as far as diversity and inclusion are concerned.
- Benetton exploits murder victims (Mike Marchand Questionable Freedoms)
For seventh and eighth grade, I attended John Young Middle School in Mishawaka. Among my classmates was a kid named Mike Fulford, who lived across the street from me. Mike and I never got along tremendously well — in fact, he once challenged me to a fight after school. However, his sister, Annie, was nice to me. I went to Marian High School and she attended Mishawaka High School, so we were never really close after that. Her boyfriend, Leif, was planning on proposing to her on her 18th birthday, April 17, 1997.
- Loophole tangles bylaws (Letter to the Editor )
There exists an apparent loophole in the election bylaws. Any supporter of a candidate is not allowed to break the campaign rules. This leaves the door wide open to a malicious sabotage of one ticket by some random person who claims to be a supporter. This person can simply send out a couple of e-mails to some key campus figures and make a mockery of the election process. While I don't feel that this is what happened in the current election, I believe it is clear that the current bylaws need to be very closely examined and PUBLICIZED so that no student unknowingly breaks the rules.
- Student Senate overreacts (Letter to the Editor )
I would like to thank the Student Senate for taking time away from everything else to decry the obvious "racial stereotyping" that appeared in a recent Observer comic. Obviously, calling U.N. Ambassador Kofi Annan a rap star was blatantly putting this man down.
- Violation made unknowingly (Letter to the Editor )
The first news that I received of an Election Day violation was a phone call from The Observer between 9-10 p.m. Thursday night.
- ACE defends program (Letter to the Editor )
We wish to thank the authors of a recent letter for calling attention to the perception that ACE, though "worthwhile and commendable," may represent a last resort for many Notre Dame seniors in the college of Arts and Letters. Our hunch is that this perception is not widely held, but on behalf of the exceptionally generous and talented applicants to ACE, we felt it important to respond.
- Ivers sends message of hope, community (Letter to the Editor )
Father Mike Ivers spoke a message of hope about a vibrant Catholic community last week. We were among the many students and teachers who attended an incredibly inspiring and challenging talk last Tuesday entitled "Call to be Church After Church in the African-American Community."
- McBrien will not seek mandate (Erin Piroutek Assistant News Editor)
The November vote by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops on the implementation of Ex Corde Ecclesiae, which included the requirement that theology professor receive mandates, raised concerns in Catholic theology departments nationwide.
- Engineering prof wins award (Special to the Observer )
Steven Schmid, associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at Notre Dame, is one of nine recipients selected to receive the 2000 John T. Parsons Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award.
- School of Architecture announces Millennium Gate contest (Special to the Observer )
Notre Dame's School of Architecture and the Millennium Gate Foundation have announced a design competition for a monumental entrance to the District of Columbia in celebration of the new millennium.
- London upstages ND (By LOUBEL CRUZ Scene Writer)
Although it is not as popular or as frequently performed as Shakespeare's other classics, "All's Well That Ends Well" brings its own unique identity to the theater stage. The play is categorized not as a tragedy or as a classic comedy, like many of its legendary predecessors, but as a "problem play," with prominent themes like the conflicts between old and new, age and youth, wisdom and stupidity, reason and passion.
- 'All's Well That Ends Well?' — Depends on who you ask (By BRIAN SEAMAN Scene Theater Critic)
It is almost as inevitable as the pristine South Quad snow becoming a slushy dirty mess. Yes, once again, Actors from the London Stage (add English accent here) have waged a British invasion on the stage of Washington Hall.
