Congratulations to the ROTC cadets who participated in the Presidential Pass ceremonies and graduate to officer class in the U.S. armed forces.

- Student Government does help diversity (Joyce De Leon junior)
I must say Jourdan Sorrel's April 22 letter hurt me. Although I agree with him about some students' lack of initiative and movement on important issues, you do not know the entire picture. For you to say that Student Government has done nothing to improve race relations on campus personally offends me for I was the Diversity Chair in that office this past year. Not only was I able to put on a successful Multicultural Fair where over 400 students, both minority and white, attended, but I also worked extensively to have a Learning to Talk about Race retreat for student leaders in Student Government and a training workshop for multi-cultural commissioners. In addition, I created forums and panels where at least 50 students, mostly white to your surprise, attended to finally open up dialogue about diversity, AIDS, religion and sexual orientation.

- Personal trials featured in `Lanes' (By BRIAN BIRCHER Scene Movie Critic)
Have you ever wondered if you had done one thing differently could your day, or even your life, have turned out better? This is one of the questions that "Changing Lanes" attempts to make the audience consider. Unlike other films with similar premises, such as "Sliding Doors" or "The Family Man," "Changing Lanes" makes this not a question of chance, but one of morality — there is doing what is right and doing what is wrong.
