Remembering 1997-1998: March 27, 1998

Observer_1998-03-27_Absurder.jpg

The March 27, 1998 Observer continued the long-standing tradition of an April Fool's special section. The Absurder’s breaking news: “Zaremba declared president of CWRU; Pytte refuses to resign... Neo-Luddites balmed for high tech crime spree... Mutant cockroaches storm Crawford... Survey shows: nerds abound at CWRU...”

More conventional headlines included:
• Krzesinski elected as new USG president
• Steiner elected new editor
• Dodd forms committee on academic ethic policy
• Gurarie fences in NCAA Championships
• Tennis team shocked by division rivals
• Baseball team splits doubleheader against Thiel Tomcats

And here's the entire issue: The Observer, 3/27/1998

This is one in a series of weekly blog postings describing what was happening at CWRU, as covered by The Observer, during the years many of the Class of 2020 were born.
