The College Board released new information Tuesday comparing the increase for private and public universities. Private school tuition increased six percent for the current academic year, from an average cost of $18,596 to $19,710.

Setting the record
The 2003 season has proven to be record-breaking for the TCU volleyball team.

Junior outside hitter Dominika Szabo said much of the team’s success this season is a result of the players adjusting to head coach Prentice Lewis’ system.

“Coach was new, and we all had to work together to get used to the new system and the six new recruits she brought,” Szabo said.

Lewis, who came to TCU before the start of the 2002 season, also said the players’ added year of experience under her system has been key to the Frogs’ success this season.

“We have a lot more players and one more year of understanding,” Lewis said.

Madonna: a retrospective
Twenty years after the release of her first album, one of the best-selling artists of all time is still going strong
COMMENTARY

Boys love her, girls hate her and conservatives everywhere condemn her career as a smorgasbord of public indecency only to be rivaled with Monica Lewinski and that blue dress. Whether you love, hate, condemn or condone her, it is evident to everyone that Madonna knows how to get publicity. Her personal life is almost indiscernible from the ever-changing public image that has been on the cutting edge of fashion, music and media censorship for over 20 years.
