  'Twas the night before BSD and all through Rez...PDF files may take a moment to load

Believe me when I say this, BSD in Rez is like Christmas. You spend the night before pacing back and forth, anxious for the coming morning. You've already bought loads of alcohol, with a few extras just in case, and all you can think of is how exciting it's going to be to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to chug down your first of many Canadians. A word of advice on BSD: learn to pace yourself.

They say these are the best times of our lives, but what exactly is the best part about it? How many of you really know why you're in university and what you intend to get from it all? Outside of what you learn in lectures--whether it's the complexities of a molecular cell, Marxist ideologies, circuits or the constructs of fluid dynamics--what's really important?

This is not an attack on the abilities or standards of Residence Services. In general, Residence Services takes care of much more than the minor inquiries about outstanding phone bills, unnotified mail packages, delayed work orders/requests or why we pay a dollar to do our laundry. For the amount of people who live in Residence, there is a lot to maintain and, despite these minor glitches, the majority of people think Residence Services does a fairly substantial job.

  Mom and Dad look better from a distancePDF files may take a moment to load

Aren't you glad to be back? Don't get me wrong, my parents are great and I'm sure, like most of you, it's a comforting thought to have not become a biological failure. But no matter how nostalgic you get, it's good to be back in Rez.

A lot of you can relate when I say, no matter how good a home cooked meal is or how amazing your mum's Christmas cookies are, there's only so much you can handle and only so much time you can spend with your parents during the holidays without wanting to alienate yourself from them.

  More respect in rez, pleasePDF files may take a moment to load

Alright, boys and girls. Back to the good life in rez. No, this isn't about how we're getting ripped off at the DC, or an insightful piece about another great rez cab where we all had a little too much fun getting drunk and had no recollections of the night. Instead, on a more serious note, what do you know about common courtesy, or in more latent terms what is referred to as "being polite?"

Tired of sex in the city? Well, sex in rez is kind of like a bad rerun of Sex in the City. Anything basically goes, as long as all sexual activities remain behind closed doors--that is, according to the "Community Agreement." No sex in the showers, bathtubs, laundry facilities, fire escapes, hallways, lounges and (sorry folks) no sex in the elevators is allowed in rez. No sex in the showers? That's no joke, and it's one of the many violated rules in rez. I'm no Dr.

  If you think your family's dysfunctional, try rezPDF files may take a moment to load

For most U of C students who have only gone as far into rez as the DC (dining centre), rez life still remains a "concept." Here's a sneak preview of what goes on after the last lesson of the day.

Living in rez, especially in Kananaskis and Rundle Halls, or "Trad," is like living in a highly family with no real stern authority, where alcoholic outbursts, sexual misdemeanours and sibling rivalries are part of the daily routine.

  Clubbers crash party scenePDF files may take a moment to load

I'm tired of all these teeny-boppertop-40 G.I. Joes and Barbie dolls invading the party (rave) scene. The reason why the party scene started was for true partiers (ravers) to get away from the exact people who give raves and ravers a bad reputation.

First they banned raves, and the mere mention of the word conjured up negative connotations about so-called misfit teenagers high on ecstasy, engaging in all-night parties where young kids overdosed and supposedly had orgies.
