- Differing ideas of game day hospitality (Disrespecting Texas A&M's tradition )
I made the long trip to South Bend this weekend for the Texas A&M vs. Notre Dame game. Like Notre Dame, Texas A&M is a tradition-rich school and Aggie fans have a sincere appreciation for college traditions. Everyone I talked with enjoyed the opportunity to tour your lovely campus and we were looking forward to learning more about Notre Dame traditions. I was extremely disappointed, however, to learn that rude and disrespectful treatment of opponents' fans and visitors was one of the less-publicized but obviously most popular traditions at Notre Dame.
- Differing ideas of game day hospitality (Meeting southern standards )
I would just like to express a sincere thank you for the hospitality displayed by your students, faculty and staff during the Notre Dame-Texas A&M football game last Saturday. Everyone from the shuttle bus drivers to the fans in the stadium were polite and helpful. I have never been to a game where the Aggies were visitors where the home crowd acted in such a positive way towards the visiting fans and the visiting team. Throughout the game I heard compliments on A&M's players and coaches, compared to the insults I normally hear when in an opposing stadium.
- Building a sense of fellowship (Letter to the Editor )
Notre Dame is a community. It is a special place where virtues like faith, hope and love guide our daily lives. Since we have taken office, one of our primarygoals has been to build this sense of fellowship and friendship among the students of Our Lady's Unversity. This idea is what we campaigned on last Spring and something which we have relentlessly pursued.

- Eminem album mixes talent with vulgarity (Scene Music Critic )
There seems to be a pretty simple formula to follow nowadays to ensure mammoth success in the infamous and sometimes shady rap world. One should merely be homophobic, vulgar, homicidal (perhaps suicidal), relatively insane, and most importantly Ñ mad at the world. So throw all these admirable traits into a recording studio, give your artist of choice a microphone and voila, and months later you have EminemÕs sophomore release, The Marshall Mathers LP.

- Jayhawks shine with new pop album Smile (Scene Music Critic )
Originally formed 15 years ago, Smile is the sixth album from the Minnesota-based Jayhawks, and the second since the departure of co-founder Marc Olson. Early albums such as Hollywood Town Hall and Tomorrow, the Green Grass displayed a country tinged sound with heavy influences by such artists as Neil Young and Steve Earle, and a style that was dubbed as alternative-country long before the term was even being used as a distinct genre. But with the mid 90s departure of Olson to record with his wife Victoria Williams as the more folky sounding Original Harmony Ridge Creek Dippers, the subsequent album, 1997Õs somewhat patchy Sound of Lies began a move away from the folk/country sounds of the earlier albums and toward a more pop orientated sound. Smile continues this move, if not completing the journey.
