TCU in second tier of
annual college report
TCU is ranked in Tier II among select universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2001 college rankings, released Thursday.

“TCU remains solidly ranked among a select group of the top 128 universities in the nation in Tiers I and II,” Chancellor Michael Ferrari said in a written statement. “We will continue to work on improving the factors listed in the rankings, not merely to affect our standing in the best college guide, but because it will make us a better institution.”

Ferrari also complimented TCU’s engineering program, which garnered national recognition.

“We are especially proud of our engineering program, which is ranked nationally in the top 50 among the best undergraduate engineering programs at universities whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s degree,” he said in the statement. “And as we’ve believed for some time, TCU remains a ‘best value’ in higher education, ranked in the top 50 great schools at great prices.”


The Programming Council’s budget is approximately $140,000, not $230,000 as reported by Student Government President Brian Wood in Thursday’s staff editorial.

The maximum fine for possessing an open container of alcohol in a vehicle is $500. The Skiff reported the fine maximum was $20 in Friday’s online edition.

Don’t be a part of campus apathy; do something
Indifferent professors contribute to holdup of UCR revision
Commentary by Jamie Walker

The lesson to be learned from the ongoing revision of the University Core Requirements is that TCU officials should rethink the university’s mission statement so it reads: To confront campus apathy on all levels and implement other lofty goals until either we are satisfied with our reputation or we run out of money.

Energetic. Angular. Entertaining. Quirky.
