- Judge wisely (Pat Peters Ads Manager)

- Getting the most out of Europe (Joshua Kirley Swift's Confederate)
To study abroad is a difficult decision. If you are considering this option solely to procure a parent subsidy while you do the Europe thing, let me save you the trip. Give me five minutes, I'll give you the continent. First off, everything is beautiful. Everything is expensive and everything is old. As for European cities, they're all born from the same general pattern. Each city has a river running through it. It usually bisects the town, but it doesn't have to. In every town, you'll have a church — a really big, really old, really impressive church. Go see it. It's free. If there are several, go to the one that's set on a major square. It's the one closest to Tourist Information; that's the red lower case "i" on the smudged crease of your disproportionate, useless, impossible to fold, pocket-size map.

- Learn to listen (Jeremy Joslin Senior)
I realize that there is an inherent danger in writing about such a touchy subject around here, but that doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is how disgusted I am at the behavior of a single pro-lifer at the senator's speech yesterday morning. As cries of "what about abortion, what about abortion, Senator Lieberman?" fell from the balcony, I couldn't help but feel embarassed for the University and for the pro-life movement entirely.

- DVD audio, digital cameras entertain technology addicts (Jeff Baltruzak Scene columnist)
Are CDs just not doing it for you anymore? It is easy to find yourself constricted by the 74 minutes on a CD. While the quality might be better than on that old Cyndi Lauper tape in the closet, it's still not good enough. Luckily, there's a new hope — DVD audio — that promises to blow away the good old CD in Rambo-style.
