John Wilson CMC '07 is off to the priesthood after a stint at the New York Post.
John was the excellent editor of The Claremont Independent and remains a good friend, having helped me on articles and such over the years.
If a priest is meant to tend to his flock and minister to them, I have no doubt that John will do a fine job once he goes through seminary.
Godspeed, my friend.
This is as close to an endorsement that I make of on campus newsprint magazines, but if you hate my guts/think this site is awful (which can be two different camps, I admit), then please, for the love of God, write for the Port Side.
Apparently you can waive summer courses from counting towards your GPA. So sayeth a friend who heard of students doing just that for Physics this past summer.
I served on curriculum committee this past year and was privy to the discussions that went into summer school. The argument I raised was that most people during the summer are hoping to knock out a GE and that having it affect your GPA is a mistake, especially as you would want a very cheap course.
A brief look on the absolutely excellent course offerings coming up. Thank you, inform, for letting me know about how important race and baseball are to everything. I wonder what the 50 bucks is for?

Poli 187K SC
Race, Nation, and Baseball
This seminar examines the formation of the United States through the lens of baseball. From Dodger Blue to the Cuban national team to the World Baseball Classic, we will consider how race, class, ethnicity, nation, and gender dynamics have determined the business and practice of the game, how baseball itself shapes the contours of race and nation, and how it has been a force for globalizing the political economy. The course will use a variety of material for its texts ranging from historical studies, documentary and feature films, web sites, and visits to baseball games and parks. Course fee: $50. T. Kim.
Instructor portal permission required or have taken an IDAS, IDAAS, Chicano/a, Latino/a studies, or POLI124 SC, or AMST103 course. Fee: $50
Questions should be directed to Professor Thomas Kim
Some 26,000 views in a week? Not bad, not bad at all. "On The Metro" featuring Honors Government thesis writer Thien-Nga "Tina" Nguyen. I leave it up to my commentators to apprise its worth. Of course Lady Gaga is pretty awesome.
