Delegation from Hungarian school visits campus
By David Dunai
strategic ties with one of the old, prestigious universities of
Europe will make TCU stronger, said Larry Adams, associate provost
for academic affairs, Tuesday after he met with a delegation from
Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE).
The delegation, from Hungarys largest university founded in
1635, visited campus this week to discuss the possibilities of a
future relationship between the two institutions, said István
Klinghammer, rector of ELTE.
The meetings focused on three major areas of cooperation such as
post-graduate education, research projects and summer courses offered
in Budapest, Hungary, Klinghammer said.

every war movie ever made, We Were Soldiers has something
to say about honor, duty, valor, sacrifice and courage under fire.

person. The person I was trying to find should be easier than searching
for Bobby Fisher, but at points, it seemed pretty difficult.
Days relies on crude humor
joke is yanked, inflated, stretched and strung out over the films
93 minutes. Gags involving condoms, erections, Viagra and fruit
that looks like vaginas are stuffed into those minutes. 40
Days and 40 Nights is flip and exhaustingly hip and irreverent
to the point of being sacrilegious.
