I don't know why I am getting drug into this Professor Dillenberg. I did do as you taught us. I had my sources and information all pinned down. I can't be held responsible if the information from the authorities in this case were all faulty.

I am not taking the blame for the headline. You know we don't get to write our own headlines, only suggest them. The editor or her assistant does the final headline writing. That typo was on them. And you know how she is. Probably just pawned it off her assistant at the last minute as usual. No surprise he messed up.

As for the article, I did what I was supposed to do. I made sure all my facts were correct. I looked through records and files and saw the name printed there over and over. It's not on us that all the school records we had access to were all wrong.

I'm sorry if we offended you Ms Leigh, there was no intent of that, but it's not because we didn't do our jobs. You can still blame this one on the school records being slow to update through the system. I bet the network is still screwed up due to whatever that hacker did last year.

Oh, Professor Dillenberg, I did have them update and fix the headline on the digital version. Nothing we can do about the print edition, but the digital one is corrected now.

Well, with the new expansion of the powers given to professors after the strike, this should not be a problem for you to. The only thing you have to be careful with is that you can't make it required. But since you already said it wasn't, you are good. I would be careful about requiring the opt out paperwork, that could be seen by some as making it a required part, although I am sure the school board would side with you if anyone complained on that one. But it would still be a hassle.

Overall I think this is going to be a popular addition to your class, even if I don't see what it has to do with Economics. Plus, with the bonus points for participating, I bet it's going to be extremely popular. I look forward to being a part of it myself.

And it's official completely now. The new rules have been added to the school's charter and they've updated the core Codes Of Conduct listing on the web. The section on academic Obedience now has over two more paragraphs to clarify the expansion of the instructor's control.

Upon reading both of these, I notice that they are more broadly written than we even expected them to be. They not only cover classes, but any activity done through the school that has students put under the supervision or control of school officials. That means any work-study jobs, club meetings with staff oversight, sporting events, etc. are all subject to the new rules.

The expansion of the wording on where they have to be followed is also made clear and is more expansive than we thought too. It's not just the classroom or anywhere the class is currently being held (if moved outside for fresh air or something), but covers anywhere student of that class may be while they are acting under the instruction of the school official in charge. So, even if the class is split up and sent out to do different class related things around campus, town, or wherever, they all have to follow the rules of the teacher while it is still counted as class time.

I hope everyone is ready to keep a lot of notes. Not on the classes themselves, but on which classes and club meetings and jobs have which rules in place and when. You are going to start seeing a lot of new and potentially contradictory rules flying around all over the place, so carefully kept notes are going to be important. Especially since the rules within these microcosms can change at the whims of those in charge.

Well, it may not matter again. The meeting between both sides leaders broke up early today and the union has called for another vote on a new proposal. The early hour of this break is a strong sign that the deal on the table is a good one for the union.

I have a feeling that by tonight, or tomorrow morning at the latest, we will have an announcement about a finished deal. My best guess is that Orientation will be set for Monday or Tuesday and classes will start the next day. But we will see.

You make some good points, Rachel. Too bad most of the masses are too blind to pay attention to the these kinds of important details. They mostly only see the front point about money and think that's what it's really about. From everything I've seen so far I would say that the money issue is the least important one for the union right now.

Unfortunately I don't think it's going to matter. From what I saw today I would guess that this strike isn't going to last but a few more days. They are most likely going to have votable terms tomorrow and then it's up to the union to vote on accepting them or not. There isn't time for any kind of educated backlash to actually have any effect on the proceedings unless it was already in motion. It's far too late to get one started now.

Odds are we are going to just have to accept that there is going to be a new level of power given to the professors and other school officials once the semester actually starts. I'm sure we'll hear a toned down and whitewashed version of it at orientation once that's back on the schedule.

So just enjoy your last few days of relative freedom.

I was also at the Panty Party thrown by the Iota Eta Pi girls, but as anyone who know me could tell you, I wasn't just there to have fun (although I did have a lot of fun while I was there). I had my camera with me and I was going to be there as a reporter first and see if this was something worth covering for The Sentinel. What I saw wan't exactly Sentinel-worthy, but I still wanted to talk a little about it and share some of the pics I took.

Open in new window

When I first got there and people were just arriving things seemed pretty normal for a Pi party, with large groups clumping together and talking about random things. A lot of the chatter was, of course, about what they thought the Pi girls had in store for the party.

Open in new window

As I started to move around and take pictures people started to pose for me, at first it was silly party poses, but pretty soon it was standard serious poses. Very odd to see this progression happen.

Open in new window

Even as people started to "get their party on" and strip off their tops they were still willing to stop and pose for my camera, usually in groups of ever-increasing sizes.

Open in new window

I was starting to bore of this progression when I noticed the party start to shift to the next level. Even though it was called a Panty Party by the hosts and everyone there, it soon became a fairly standard Pi Girl naked party as everyone was losing their panties and everything.

Open in new window

These three saw me noticing them and snapping some pictures of their now naked bodies and instead of getting upset they did what everyone had been doing all evening, they posed for me.

Open in new window

To nobody's surprise, since it was rather hot out still, the party even spilled out into the patio and back yard of the sorority house. There were dozens of naked people all over the place outside, just like inside, but those outside seemed far more comfortable, since the temperature was far lower than inside the packed party.

Open in new window

By the time I made it back inside the party had made another turn I should have expected to see happen sooner or later. The "Let's flaunt the rules and wear panties" party that quickly became their usual "Let's all get naked" party, soon enough was transformed into a "wild crazy sex" party.

Open in new window

So, like I said at the beginning, nothing really unusual or special to report about this party. The Sentinel would have to look elsewhere for a good headline. So I stopped looking for a story at this point and just enjoyed the rest of the party.

I was at the event, as part of the audience. Being a representative of the Sentinel, I was there to cover it for the news, but I was allowed a little more access than the local and national news groups had. One of the perks of being a part of the school's own paper.

Anyway, our official photographer was there to get the shots we will use in the report, but I had my iPhone with me, so I took a few shots of my own. I was even able to capture one shot of people as they got ready and wrapping up in their sheets before putting them on in ghost form.

Open in new window

With the light rain early in the event, you can really see how sheer the things got. I was kind of surprised nobody dropped out because of the cold ness of the event. I mean, it couldn't have been comfortable being out there in the cool early evening air when you were damp.

Open in new window

It did start to look really cool as the sun started to go down through. The spectral forms of the sheets moving across the fields in the low blue-tinted twilight was something to see. This shot doesn't even do it justice.

Open in new window

I was annoyed at first that I didn't get to cover the first weekend of the Haunted House, but no longer. This was a really cool and unique thing I got to cover. It's not often a reporter gets to say that about something they witness.

From what I hear with my contacts (through the journalism department) is that there is going to be some kind of artistic demonstration to bring awareness to their cause. Those involved are going to be given some kind of "ghost outfit" or something to wear as they walk through the fields and woods along the lake's shore during the afternoon, heading into the public park.

I don't know if there is more to it than that or not, since that's only known by those putting it on and I don't have contacts on that side. But being centered from this school, it has the local media already excited to see what happens and all of them are going to be there as instructed. As am I and most of my department.

I don't know exactly what kind of rule changes they could be talking about enacting, but if the Deans' emails are to be believed, it sounds like they were discussing possibly excepting her from some of the rules, not actually adding new ones that would really effect the rest of us. Things like the touching rules and certain dress codes would be ignored for her (or others who end up with a similar situation).

Hell, it might even be a foot in the door to have those kinds of exceptions in place for people suffering certain punishments or after they've been stripped due to an inspection. I can't see how those kinds of changes could be a bad thing for any of us. Although it does sound like most of the Deans are against making exceptions for her (at least from the email snipits TG posted).

I'm seriously interested to see how this plays out and when they go public with any changes they do decide to make. Although, knowing how fast school politics moves, I doubt we'll have an answer before the start of next year's classes.

You keep saying the codes are confusing. I can understand people who find them odd, but they aren't really confusing. In fact, they seem to have less confusion around them than some others I've seen that try to make rules for everything. CUNT just does thing simpler by flat out banning things, rather than regulating them with tons of measurements and restrictions and rules.

You have a dress code, which is pretty simple and laid out clearly, and the codes of conduct, which mostly just say be good and polite (although more fully explained). I would say this place is more strict in certain areas than most American schools though, but it does make for a much better result in the end.

And New Town is a great place. They have lots of neat clubs and restaurant, not to mention the shopping. And all of them are really accepting of the college kids and allowing them to stick with the rulings of the school. Even if you get a part time job in town, then will all work with and around the dress code rules, your classes, and any punishments you end having to do.

As for pictures of New Town, you can look at this site, especially in the Around Town and Around Campus sections for some pictures of the place. There have also been some Community Spotlights that have covered certain places, like the lakeside park, and those always have pictures. And I think that hacker TrughGirl also posted some things about locations in town that may have pictures too.

This site is the Student Body Information & Community Site. It's the place made for us students to chat, read about thing going on on campus or around town that effect them, and to keep informed about the codes (including any changes they make). This site is not the school's Administrative Education Site, which is where you will find all the information about classes, applying, and other administrative information. You'd have to get onto that site to see those things, but it's been up and down like crazy since the hacker attack. We're never sure when we'll be able to see it any given time.

Thanks for your reply, I'm just curious about the college, it seems like a good place to study and I'm looking to get a scholarship somewhere overseas. How long have you studied here? It seems like a different place to australian colleges.


I find it a great place to study, especially if you are interested in any of the arts, but it is quite different from most American schools too. The codes make sure of that, but they have their place and, for the most part, seem to do what they are meant to do. If you can handle them, then this might be a good place for you.

As for scholarships, that is a bit harder to get if you are coming from overseas. Most of their programs are for those coming from within the states, but not all. I'm not an expert on everything they offer, you'd have to talk to the head office for that, but I think the majority of them are arts related.

But if you want to know anything more specific about how things are handled on campus, events, classes, or even social things, just ask. We are a really friendly bunch of people here who love to share.

As a member of the Sentinel and one of the people who researched the article in question, I take offense at the accusation that we are targeting TruthGirl (or any group, for that matter). All we did was report what we found and what the school told us.

As of the time the article was being written that was where the school was looking. They said they had other possible groups to look into, but only had the one strong lead at the time. That was before members from the Lesbian Society decided to post on the forums bragging about their involvement. I'm sure things have changed a lot over the last couple days.

As for my stand on the whole thing, I think the legality of the whole thing is pretty clear. The cameras were legal, selling seems to not be, and the connecting them to the internet is in a gray area. Other than that, I have no opinion. I am a journalist.

Yeah, we had a crew over shooting some pics for the feature on the Costume Contest winners over there today. Not all of them are being shot there though. We did some earlier this week and there are still some to go, so the full story should be done and posted within a week.

I'm thinking it should be a Community Spotlight thing, though, since it was open to the public to view if they paid the admission price. We will see where they stick it when they write it up.

There's not enough people out playing chess these days. Sure, there's the chess club and I am a member there, but most of them don't seem to like to play out in the quad in the sun.

Come on by and play a game with me. I need for friends who like chess and I am more than willing to teach if you aren't familiar with the game.

If you like to try, I'm out there most afternoons after lunch. I'm out there for longer most weekends too.

I don't play any particular kind (speed, timed, etc.), but am willing to play whatever form you are most comfortable with.

I hope to see you out there some afternoon. I bring my own board, so you don't even need to worry about that.

Top Bunk is Empty... Fill It!

Double Room Needs a Second


My roommate just left to go live off campus and now my double room in Harlow Dorms (building I) has an empty bunk. Anyone who wants to move in (and legally can) is welcome to contact me and we'll see if it works. If the school pays for your lodging, you pay nothing, otherwise you will have to talk to housing.

Interested parties should contact me, though, because if I don't find a suitable replacement within the following weeks the school will assign a new roommate to me from the pool. I would rather have some say in the matter than just having one thrust on me.

As you can see from these pictures, the room is kept relatively clean and the top bunk is now available. You will also have a whole desk to yourself (opposite of bed and not in pictures) and half the closet/dresser space along the side wall.

Also, our floor is known for having fun game nights and being very friendly. So come join in the fun and become one of us.

If you are not on the campus waiting list for rooms or already in a room, you will have to come to me first so I can request you be accepted as my friend/family. They don't add at this point of the year otherwise.
