You Don't Need to be a Great Classic to be a Mediocre Remake

(08/20/04 4:00am)

You can take your pick. There's The Manchurian Candidate, Dawn of the Dead, Man on Fire, or how about The Stepford Wives? No, this isn't the Spectravision selection at a Saskatchewan Hilton. These venerable quasi-classics have been rethought, rehashed and remade into slick modern spectacles and are revisiting theaters this summer.

Chafe bids deanship farewell

(04/21/04 4:00am)

As William Chafe packs up his belongings and prepares to vacate his comfortable 104 Allen Building office, he will doubtless look back on his tenure as the top man in Arts and Sciences. Perhaps sitting alone amongst boxes, perhaps with a picture frame or a vase in hand, Chafe will gaze out his window onto a dusky Chapel Quadrangle and think about all he has done, and all he did not do.

The officers who will assume the reins of the University after Keohane steps down July 1, including President-elect Richard Brodhead, said they will follow through on Keohane's call to "reconceptualize the enterprise" through specialization and cross-institutional collaboration, though perhaps not in as dramatic a fashion as some anticipate.

(03/29/04 5:00am)

As the rooster crowed Friday morning, juniors across campus awoke to register online for their senior fall courses. While the 7 a.m. wake-up call was accepted as a necessary evil for those seeking to get a headstart on their peers, these brave souls soon realized that their efforts were, in fact, for naught. Registration hub ACES was down, juniors became annoyed and course registration would have to wait at least another day.
