(4) Tue Jan 24 2006 14:05 burned out paranoia: I hate applying for nursing schools. Diversity week is finally over. We had a great time playing WC Basketball, doing a diversity carnival for all the groups on campus to be seen and heard, playing diversity triva games, etc... College of republicans made a statement by offering a $100 Diversity scholarship..."everyone welcome to apply unless you are a white American". They did get their point across though, and now the Affirmative Action stuff is being examined by the adminstrative board. But overall everyone was happy with everyone. We had a good time. We are also bringing in the real Hotel Rowanda guy to speak, and then showing the movie in a couple of weeks, then we have some disabled comedians coming in a few months. School is going well thus far...I have a really cool Asian studies class, and Criminal Justice is my current favorite. and then there is the world of basetball keeping me sane on the side. yeah for the aggies beating WAC #1 Nevada. gotta love it. we have been nicer fans since our "waste of tithing/honor code is satan's plan" stint againts BYU. well kind of I guess we did chant guilty and were mean to NBA hopeful Paul Millsap from LA Tech, who was charges with aggrevated assault last Oct. Boy did the bother him. lol. well that's all the break I can afford...time to keep applying for nursing Schools. :(

I used to hear that "tithing" argument at BYU a lot too. It doesn't make any sense at all, coming from a fellow Mormon. Cuz it's their tithing that is being wasted. After all, I pay tithing, but I went to BYU to take advantage of the lower tuition. But other people, who make such comments, pay the same tithing I do, but go to other schools where the cost is NOT subsidized by tithing. Kinda similar to the private high school/tax dollar scenario. Not that you should go to a school simply cuz you payed tithing. But the argument just doesn't make sense.As far as Hotel Rwanda, I loved that movie. Anyone who thinks the Clinton Administration is flawless should see the movie. No president is flawless. Just some more than others. No comment on the current presidency.

Actually tuition is the same price at USU as it is at BYU and that is with our 43% occuring increase in tuition. It is the Basketball team that was considered a waste of tithing by some of our students, although congrats to them for beating the U of U. :) I am excited to see Hotel Rowanda, i haven't seen it yet and especially to hear the speaker. I'll report how it goes.

I put off watching Hotel Rawanda for almost a year. I really wanted to see it but those images really haunt me. I finally watched it and it was very well done and my heart goes out to all those Africans.
