Students returned to campus, no doubt excited to be with their friends again, start classes and see where they’d be living for the next school year. But for some, that excitement may have deflated when they saw the condition of their housing.

Water damage. Paint damage. Missing closet doors. This is just some things heard or seen when school started up again. Some of the residence halls and houses had various damage, which soured the mood of move-in day for some returning students. While these damages can be brushed off and accepted, it can still ruin the feel of a room.

Recently, some students have questioned the timeliness and thoroughness of health professionals in the Health Services office.

Then, I waited five minutes for a nurse to check me. By opening a few minutes ear- lier, I would’ve been able to have my appointment when scheduled, rather than five minutes later.

What does a GPA say about a student? It may reflect their test-taking abilities, attendance and completion of assignments. However, there are infinite factors that could make up this number. A biased high school teacher, a leave of absence or even a technological issue could drastically change this number. Furthermore, why must students be judged as a number? Isn’t that a bit de-humanizing? Are the skills evaluated by this number evident the student learned anything?
