For the first time in the history of UR women’s basketball, the Yellowjackets have made it to the Division III Final Four. The women will vie for a chance at the national title this Friday. Last year when the men’s team made the tournament, transportation was last-minute and there was little opportunity for students to attend the games and get involved in the events.

The Student Activities Office should be applauded for anticipating the importance of the women’s tournament run this year and responding rapidly. The Dean of Students Office, the Center for College Advancement and the Class of 2005 Council also have organized the “Catch Yellow Fever” efforts. They have arranged for transportation, lodging and shirts in an effort to increase school spirit and help students become a part of the Final Four excitement. In addition to making arrangements, the college has also put forth a lot of money to sponsor these events and reduce ticket prices.

Students need to take advantage of the SAO’s effort and be sure to attend the games especially since so much is organized for the student body already. Often UR is criticized for its lack of school spirit. SAO made a positive move to stop this stereotype and offer students a chance to express their school spirit. Administration has made the effort to support our teams, and students should do the same. Go Yellowjackets!



An open letter to all members of any university community

I strongly oppose the proposed divestment resolution. This resolution is nothing more than another ugly manifestation of antisemitism at the University.

Hippo Campus’ D-Day show was to “Ride or Die” for

Hippo Campus’ performance was a well-needed break from the craze of finals, and just as memorable as their name would suggest.

A reality in fiction: the problem of representation

Oftentimes, rather than embracing femininity as part of who they are, these characters only retain traditionally masculine traits.
