Ranging from bake sales to a foursquare tournament, members of Alternative Spring Break trips are getting creative to raise money. ASB sends students to various locations in the U.S. such as New Orleans, Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, where students volunteer in projects and learn about different issues during the week of spring break.Community Involvement Center Director Mac Griswold said that the CIC covers the basic expenses, such as ASB T-shirts and the two-day training prior to the trips, but trip members are responsible for paying the expenses of the actual trip, such as plane tickets and living expenses. Excluding the $250 registration fee, the rest of the money comes from fundraising.
The Honor Council met Nov. 21 to discuss and ratify the Honor Council Consensus Penalty Structure that will take effect in the spring semester.Honor Council External Vice Chair Kaleb Underwood said that the Honor Council included "in violation" and "not in violation" as one of the factors that the Honor Council cannot consider in order to prevent charges held against a student pleading in violation, because the accused should always be allowed to make a defense. Underwood said that historically, a student's plea had been looked at in different ways, but as recent as in the past four or five years, it has become an unwritten rule that it should not be considered in determining the penalty.
The Computer Science Department announced its new curriculum that will officially take effect for the class of 2015. Major changes in the new curriculum include a new introductory course sequence, removal of the previously required discrete math course and more consistency in programming languages taught.Computer Science Department Chair Joe Warren said the success of COMP 140 following its introduction three years ago motivated the change in curriculum. Rather than only focusing on learning a programming language, COMP 140 provides more hands-on problems, such as music processing and network analysis on Facebook, as initiatives to building programming techniques.
