Time to head back down the rabbit hole, friends: the textbook area at the new Seminary store is open and stocked with Winter Quarter textbooks. 5751 S. Woodlawn, as if you didn’t already know that Alice/Neo.
I really shouldn’t be attached to a bookstore like this, especially since it’s moved from its labyrinthine confines, but I am, Seminary Co-Op, I am!
To demonstrate how well University of ChicagoTV and movie characters mimic the real deal, we’ve plotted a sample of fakes on (what else?) a polar-coordinate chart.
Still with us? Each point is described by an ordered pair (r, Θ), where r is the radius from the center and Θ is the angle from the vertical axis. The higher r’s value (i.e., closer to the edge), the less believable the Maroon. High Θ values denote deadly serious characters. Low Θ indicates a character who’s intentionally funny; intermediate Θ denotes one unintentionally so. Check the polar-coordinate chart, and let us know which Maroons are missing and where they would land.
I can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am that I chose a university that is on a quarter system. All year, I watched my friends at semester schools toil through core classes or classes they just didn’t like for four, five months. Even with finals rapidly approaching (24 hours to go!), I’m…
I’m really gonna miss the quarter system myself. But somehow, I think I’ll be in school for a shorter period of time. But with the quarter system, anytime it’s done, you can go on vacation: Winter break! Spring break! Summer break!
