    After a week off racing, the Lady Hawks cross country team traveled back to Kenosha, Wisconsin Saturday morning to take on a deep field of competition in the Lucian-Rose Invitational hosted by University of Wisconsin Parkside.  Racing again on this hill-laden course, the ladies were more ready with an extra five weeks of training under their belt than when they faced it in week two of their season. Having perfect weather conditions near 60 degrees, the ladies knew their plan had to be executed well to attack the hills aggressively and maintain top pace for all 5 kilometers.

    In November of 2011, the Princeton Review released their list, “The 10 Colleges With the Least Happy Students.”  Just down the list from the military academies, at number nine was our own Illinois Institute of Technology. Sadly, finding IIT on this list was not a shock or surprise to many current students. Why? IIT has frequented this list repeatedly. For me, this ranking does not make any sense at all.
    My five years at IIT have been the best times of my life.

    At one point in Mere Christianity, C.S.

What would we think of those people, Lewis asks the reader?  Surely, their instinct for food has gone awry. Just so—he relates—has our sex instinct.

    This year as A&E editor of TechNews, I wanted to do something edgy; something that pushed the envelope in an unexpected way. I wanted to humanize the staff and faculty of our school. I knew this would be tough. How do you relate to someone whose career is based on catering to judgmental know-it-alls like yourself? Well, if Russians and Americans can cohabitate the International Space Station less than thirty years after the end of the Cold War, we can start thinking of our teachers as fellow humans now that we are in college.
