- The Lesson We Learned (Brian Churney On the Hot Corner)
My mother always told me it didn't mater if I won or lost, but rather only that I learned something from my mistakes. So as a senior, I'd like to look back on the last four football seasons not in terms of wins and losses, but in terms of the lessons learned in the process.

- Doppler 16: not just a promotional gimmick, really! (Nakasha Ahmad So, What's My Point?)
As you all learned in high school English and journalism classes, part of the media's job is "to inform and educate," the public. And since those folks at The Observer are crazy enough to GIVE me 10 inches of white space in which to rant every two weeks, I am a member (albeit a somewhat dubious one) of the media. So, this week I thought I would actually take my job seriously and try to "inform and educate" you, the public, about an exciting new development on the South Bend news scene.

- `Sense of family' not felt in SMC financial aid office (Letter to the Editor )
On May 15, 1999, I sat in the LeMans courtyard with 300 of my fellow classmates as we made the progression from Saint Mary's students Alumnae. As with many college graduations, there were several speeches given that day, and each of these people spoke of the sense of community at Saint Mary's that makes it such a special college to attend. They spoke of the commitment Saint Mary's has to each student. That day, as I sat among the women I had been privileged to know, I felt two things. First, I felt that none of this really needed to be said at commencement; after all, we had gone to Saint Mary's for four years and we already had a profound knowledge and respect for the special character and sense of community cultivated at Saint Mary's. Second, I entered the ranks of its alumnae with an unparalleled sense of pride.
