Western to rally for tuition freeze

Western, not usually known for its political activism, will be the site of a political rally this Wednesday.

The rally calls for a freeze of tuition fees and, in the case of the Society of Graduate Students, a reduction in graduate fees.

The rally is endorsed by the UWO Public Interest Research Group, the University Students' Council, SOGS and the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association.



Males sought for stripper boot camp

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Throughout A View From The Top, you're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Presumably, at any moment now, the movie will end the earnest, you-can-live-your-dreams crap and start the zany comedy about the stewardesses. Right? Right?.

CAMPUS & CULTURE

Hip-Hop commercialization

Let's face it; black is cool.
