WIU board set to release 4 hours of secret tapes. But it’s a different story for recordings that have been secret for 4 years.

I know it is a small detail amongst many more high priority issues to deal with, but why do we have no students listed as Courier staff members?

Put a face with a name, maybe one of them will be recognized and pick up a scoop that otherwise might be lost.

I dont care if it is a student run newspaper. There needs to be faculty or administrative oversight to make sure small details like this are addressed.

Every state is doing it. Ohio is crazy. If I read it correctly, a kid could graduate from college about the same time they graduate from HS assuming their courses were in the right areas.

The bottom line is that colleges must prepare for a declining supply of on-campus bodies to sustain themselves. Kids coming out of HS might be able to graduate from a four year college in far less than 4 years. Add in a bunch of students doing nothing but online courses from their home.

If I had a dollar for every calorie I ingested at one of Carin Stutz's franchise hangouts, I could go on one hell of nice vacation. Applebees seems to be me and fiance's favorite watering hole in Davenport so far. When we get dressed up fancy, we like Duck City Bistro.
