Philly's TTV rocks the Vault

No matter how successful a woman is, if she is attractive and up on a stage, some jackass in the crowd will inevitably shout, "Show your tits." Which is precisely what happened when I saw Philadelphia's Tapping the Vein play at the Vault on April 13. Fortunately, singer Heather Thompson had a reply on hand, the culprit apologized and the show went on.

Student supporters of Amendment A, the proposed Student Council Constitutional revision are appealing the results of this week's election and calling for the disqualification of Amendment B, the winning amendment.

Election day in Chicago aside, is there any event more anti-climactic than a university commencement? Four years are spent in eager anticipation of that glorious day, and when it finally comes, halfway through the interminable pomposity of it all, you find yourself praying for the end. Of the world, that is.

A Cock Block to last for the ages - The Cock Block

So, it's come to this: the final Cock Block the world will ever see. As much as I'd like to, I can't imagine that this column will be terribly missed. What is this, the sixth edition of it? Maybe not even that many. But one thing's for certain: It's probably been a waste of time for all parties involved.

Fewer vendors for Spring Fair 2002

After the University changed its open space protocols last year, large events like Spring Fair were forced onto Garland Field. Spring Fair 2002 will again be held on Garland Field but with a new layout and fewer vendors to adjust for spatial issues faced last year.

Brokaw to address grads

The academic year is almost over, which brings up the big question that is on everyone's minds. Who is speaking at the commencement ceremonies? Well wait no longer, because it's official! This year's commencement speaker will be broadcast journalist Tom Brokaw. Now you may wonder how this came to be. How did our school manage to get such a big name character to speak for free? It's actually simpler than you think.

The Quiz Master Quiz

Of course, when it happens that an honest-to-God famous person is headlining at one of the symposium events, the QM drops everything to attend.

Were the four years worth it?

For freshmen like me, graduation seems as far off as Stevie Wonder trying to shoot a gun Hell, I'm not even really sure about my major yet. Still, it scared me when I found that other underclassmen have already mapped out their futures and have specific plans set in their heads for after graduation. Nonetheless, whether your post-college ideas are vague or specific, here's a look at where you could be in a few years.

Track individuals shine at Western Maryland

Walking off impressive team performances last week at the Western Maryland Twilight Invitational, Hopkins athletes had a different outlook on Saturday's meet at the Widener Invitational in Chester, Pa. In a meet that included no team scoring, many Hopkins athletes had a chance to shine as individuals. The men's team recorded four top 10 finishes and four season best marks, while the women had eight top 10 finishes and five season best marks.

The subversion of democracy

When President Bush called Israeli Prime Ariel Sharon, the man responsible for the slaughter of more than 3,000 at Sabra and Shatila, a "man of peace," it was clearer than ever that the United States refuses to alter its stance of unswerving support for Israel. It was in response to such misguided foreign policy that more than 75,000 Americans converged on Washington, D.C. last Saturday.
