Cheers to everyone who played a role in the production of the Silly T. Scholars comedy show. It was a highly entertaining event.
Jeers to running out of bonus points on your Crimson Card. I realize that this isn’t an issue for some, if not most, but for all of those who enjoy frequent visits to Jazzman’s and the 1780 Café, it is a very real tragedy.

Cheers to sophomore Clay Hinton, senior Chris Bloch and first-year Elizabeth Young for earning Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors in golf, baseball and softball, respectively.
Jeers to finals week, but …
Cheers to May term. (I realize these are both painfully uncreative, but I felt they were valid nonetheless.)
