- Men Really Are From Mars By COLLEEN GAUGHEN
You would think that after taking several courses in gender studies, I would have a better understanding of the differences between men and women. I don't. You would think that growing up with two brothers and a father in a very small house with three daughters and a mother, I would understand the male as well as the female perspective of family life. I don't. And you would think that after two serious relationships involving long distance, I would begin to grasp the disparity between the way men and women understand one another. But I don't.
- Res Life off the mark Letter to the Editor
Recently, I received a second notice for a violation involving my vehicle dated April 24, 1999. On this date, I was pulled over by Notre Dame Security for driving onto campus via the non-blockaded entrance by the library. While the Office of Residence Life's overzealous pursuit of "justice" in this matter is valiant, it is fruitless. I have already been fined $50 for this violation and therefore, in my eyes, this issue has already been resolved.

Letter to the Editor
I'm a graduate of the class of 1995 and I went back to campus for the MSU game. These are some of my observations:
- A little empathy can go a long way Kevin M. Huie
Two years ago, I began my first year working in the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. I sat in the front hallway of the Center for Social Concerns, greeting the students arriving at our office-sponsored Welcome Back Dance. As we expected, the back room was filled with a diverse group of students, and admittedly there were very few Caucasian students. At some point in the night, two first-year students, apparently roommates, walked in, full of energy. One was African-American, one was Caucasian. After introductions, the two followed the music to the back. I turned to a colleague and said, "Let's see how long he stays. I give him 15 minutes." Not less than two minutes went by before the Caucasian student made a bee line for the front door.
- A song for Bob Letter to the Editor
In light of the recent losses by the Notre Dame Football team, I felt compelled to rewrite the lyrics to a Blink-182 song called "What's My Age Again?"

- Prof: Violence must end for peace in N. Ireland Matt Bunda

- Symposium critiques modern museum By BRIDGET MAHONEY
"Symposium" is one of those big, intimidating words. It probably brings back excruciating memories of a philosophy seminar full of troublesome books one might prefer to leave on the shelf collecting dust. Its meaning must be a group of overly intellectual individuals dissecting and debating dry, abstract and incomprehensible theories, right?
