SOGS gives props to faculty

Western's Society of Graduate Students recently sent a letter to university administration stating its support of the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association in regards to current contract negotiations.

City up in arms over developer

Londoners are up in arms over a recent ruling by the Ontario Municipal Board that allows a developer to proceed with building new student-centred townhouses near Western's campus.

SO, IN CLOSING, I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY, I'LL DEFEND MY "COSBY SWEATER" TO ANY FASHION CRITIC. Peter Desbarats, former dean of Western's school of journalism, spoke yesterday about the critical role of news media in democracy. It made us feel important.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

No one's ever going to confuse London, Ontario with "the other London," so it's both necessary and refreshing to find creative ways to escape The Forest City's dreary suburban landscape.

Canadian photographer Rob Nelson's new exhibition at the Gibson Gallery is designed to do just that – provide its viewers with an escape to Paris (France, not Ontario) without ever having to leave the gallery..

SPORTS

Contradiction leads Mustangs

Opposites attract is usually an aphorism used to describe relationships, but not the leaders of a volleyball team.

CAMPUS & CULTURE

Operation Pick Up:
We did it for the nookie

The problem: we have absolutely no idea how to pick up objects of our affection.

The answer: Operation Pick Up.

The objective: talk to, dance with, woo, taunt and flirt with as many people as possible and get them to call you the next day.
