Personal Development

YOU ARE THE most important part of college. After all the sound and fury, after all the song and dance, you are what you get out of college. Your personal development and other good habits prepare you for the workplace, where most of us will spend the rest of our lives.

The One-Finger Salute

Thumbs up to the Bulldogs for their victory over the Bulldogs. While we certainly appreciate the win, we are in dismay over the’Dogs apparent inability to play well until the second halves of games. According to The Fresno Bee, the team has been outscored 70-18 in first halves this season by their opponents. Perhaps we should think about not letting the team play until after 8:30 p.m.

Textbook blues and yellows

I DON’T USUALLY READ the required text. Paying attention to the lecture usually does it for me, assuming the professor isn’t a moron. As a plurality of my professors are by far not morons, it’s been years since I’ve even opened up the syllabus-mandated, officially approved, isn’t-it-interesting-that-my
