  Differential tuition approvedPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary’s Board of Governors approved both differential tuition and a 6.3 percent general tuition increase today despite the best efforts of student leaders. A full year’s undergraduate tuition next year will rise by $260 from $4,120 to $4,380.

Differential fees for law and MBA programs will be $2,500 for the 2003-2004 school year, $5,000 for 2004-2005, and $5,000 for 2005-2006. Medical students face the same increases for the next two years, and a $7,000 increase for 2005-2006.

You don't think reality TV can get any worse?

Wanna bet?

It was about three years ago that FOX came up with Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire? At the time, it was one of the low points in television history. At the time, it seemed like a low-water mark that might stand for a while. Yeah, right.

Since then, we have witnessed such bottom-level programming as Are You Hot? and I'm a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here! Three years ago, we couldn't have seen that coming.

  Reality TV can't get any worse...PDF files may take a moment to load

The disgust that filled many an American television viewer during the now waning Survivor craze was dwarfed long ago. Then America took a short-lived trip to Temptation Island. Shortly after, we greeted The Bachelor (and then The Bachelorette), Meet My Folks and, more recently, Joe Millionaire. Now, viewers naïvely thought, things can only get better from here.

Not surprisingly, they didn't.

Well kids, it's that time again, everyone's favourite time of the year: tournament time, March Madness. As much as I am a hockey fan first and foremost, nothing, aside from the World Cup of Soccer, is more exciting or invigorating than the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.

  More reasons to cheerPDF files may take a moment to load

The day has finally come. As of February 26, 2003 the university of Calgary's power cheerleading team became an official club. With 22 people on the squad including three boys, this team hopes to make an impact in the upcoming year.

Lead by Head Coach Jillian White, these aerobatics athletes hope to inspire the Dinos next season by coming out to most games. They want to raise the school spirit, get the crowds nice and rowdy, and show off what they can do.

  The true price of happinessPDF files may take a moment to load

Tuition increases come but once a year, and every year the Students' Union holds protests and forums to try and stop them, and perhaps with good reason. However, there is a greater burden on the pockets of students that has gone unchallenged.

Until now.

Re: "A Lesson to be learned," March 13,2003.

I have taught courses in mythology at the University of Calgary over the years. I have also written reviews of the first two installments of the Rings trilogy for various periodicals. So I had a special interest in the appearance of this article in the Gauntlet.

I want to acknowledge the fine job done by [Anna Rozwadowska].

Rarely have I read Gauntlet columns of the quality reflected in this piece.

Fearing regime change through force, the Gauntlet held its free and democratic elections on the first day of war in Iraq.

"I will not leave the office!" screamed a triumphant Lawrence Bailey, who won the Editor-in-Chief election by one vote. "I will also tell my sons to stay put!"

Other candidates were not so lucky.

"I guess I'll have to concentrate on killing horses for glue," said Nicole Kobie, who came in second. "I will get my degree, go out to stud, and enter the adhesives business.
