Remembering 1997-1998: January 16,1998

In the first issue of the new semester, The Observer editors offered some New Year’s resolutions to CWRU: implement computerized registration, allow juniors to live off campus, end the mandatory meal plan, implement standardized training for academic advisors, administrative offices should not close during the lunch hour.

“If CWRU can follow just one or two of the above suggestions, the student population would be most grateful.”

Headlines in the January 16, 1998 issue included:
• Clinton declares MLK Jr. Day to be day ‘on’ service
• Student sexually assaulted on Case Quad New Year’s Day
• Sororities kick off rush
• Eyes On Downhill Ski and Snowboard Club
• ZBT Hosts Casino Night
• Dunbar speaks at CWRU
• New deans come and go with the new year
• WSOM’s Cowen prepares for Tulane
• CWRU professor questions Martian nanobacteria
• Letters to the editor: Kwanzaa deserves to be considered “religious”; Kwanzaa belongs in Holiday Festival; Treat students with respect
• Exhibit celebrates African-American heritage
• Sports: Spartans thrive as coach nears milestone; New year brings new hope for Spartans; Wrestlers compete in Heidelberg tournament; Spartan Spotlight: Joe Dietrich, civil engineering senior, wrestling & track
