gets poor results in survey ranking academic challenge
By Kelly Morris
members expressed concerns about the universitys poor results
in the academic challenge category of the 2001 National Survey of
Student Engagement to Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Don Mills
at the Faculty Senate meeting Thursday.
Mills said the university should be concerned about its performance.

the experience is like for our students, he said. Students
may not be viewing things the way the faculty is.
The survey, administered by the Indiana University Center for Post-Secondary

210 freshmen and 245 seniors about their college experience, said
Angie Taylor, director of alcohol and drug education, who is studying
the surveys results.

California (in real life), has hunted down invisible aliens (in
Predator), has had a baby on the big screen (Junior)
and has played the Terminator, for gosh sakes isnt
really afraid of any topic.
But sitting in a hotel room full of Internet journalists in Beverly
Hills, Calif., he knows that the events of the day are going to
be discussed including terrorism and especially because
hes been directly affected now.

Early in their
headlining show Feb. 1 at the Aardvark, Barrett Shipp, the lead
singer and guitarist of TCU band Bottleneck, educated his audience
on what to expect from his four-piece rock outfit.
