HEY ALL! THE KOLLEGE DAILY HAS RELAUNCHED!

GO TO
The Kollege Daily NOW!


Welcome to The Kollege Daily!

Ah, the old college paper! The Harvard Crimson! The UCLA Bruin! The Daily Pennsylvanian! The University of North Arizona Lumberjack! From the largest state school in Florida to the smallest liberal arts school in Vermont, the campus newspaper is there: Promoting freedom of the press, freedom of speech, heralding change, denouncing injustice, exposing scandal and providing a needed platform for students to voice their opinions. Whether the story involves the lack of vegetarian options in the dining halls, debates over whether alumni funds should go toward a "student center" or a "student union", or mysterious cases of disappearing furniture from dorm lounges, the campus newspaper is there.

The future of our nation is writing. Are you listening?

Senator, Hot or Not?
The Kansan
Hot or not?

Thanks to an anonymous student senator you too can have a say in whether your senator is hot or not. Hotornot.com is a Web site where computer users can post pictures of themselves or others and have the photos rated on a scale of one-to-10 based on their attractiveness.

Whether they think it is stupid, a waste of time, or all done in fun, most Student Senators begrudgingly admit they have checked the Web site out.

Despite Allegations of Collusion and "Dirty" Tactics, Victory Declared for Yisrael "Yummy" Schachter
The Commentator
On April 10, the Yeshiva student body elected Yisrael “Yummy” Schachter as a write-in candidate for Yeshiva Student Union (YSU) President and chose officials for the other student governmental organizations. This year’s campaign was marred by shifting electoral tickets, spiteful campaign tactics, and the formation of polarized political camps.  Moreover, the YSU canvassing committee, responsible for policing the campaign, this time was unable to rein in the harshness and indiscretions. As Gennady Gelman, co-chair of the canvassing committee, summed it up: “If in most elections the candidates attempt to win, in this one they expended all their efforts trying to make the others lose.” Another student leader reflected, “This was a very, for lack of a better word, dirty election.” (read on...)


Morning After Pill, "Coat Hanger of the Rich"
The Breeze
All of this attention is for an issue that really is a legislative dead fish. The Board of Visitors made the decision over six months ago and, in that time, no change has been seen — not for a lack of trying on the part of Student Body President Levar Stoney and our campus version of Gloria Steinem, junior Krissy Schnebel.

Bike "Borrowed"
The Record
Since the beginning of the school year, my bike has been “borrowed” several times. I’d like to say right off the bat that letting people ride my bike is not a problem. The first time my bike was “borrowed,” I found it a few days later outside of the dining hall leaning against a tree.
