Students should respect safety while enjoying NOD

(10/22/13 12:00am)

Wiess College's annual Night of Decadence is this Saturday. In light of the extreme media coverage of the event last year, the Thresher encourages students not to hold back on contacting emergency medical services or other help if they feel it is needed. Despite any negative fallout from last year's event, the safety and well-being of our fellow Owls should always be the No. 1 priority. 

More hot food at the Hoot

(10/09/13 12:00am)

The Thresher would like to corroborate the general feeling among students that hot food at the Hoot is running out too quickly. While the Hoot must, of course, first have the capital and stable consumer base in order to purchase more food, the general feeling on campus appears to be that there is enough demand among Rice University students for the Hoot's hot food to justify purchasing additional food, especially given that the Hoot's food is often sold out by 11 p.m. or midnight, which is only about halfway through the Hoot's hours of operation (see story, p. 4).
