They are now paying for train tickets for orientation and Discover Western activities! Great idea in my opinion! ;) jc
I wonder if they're able to get a deal from Amtrak...group rate, or something. You gotta figure, more students at Western means more students using the Amtrak route to head back north every now and then.
Does Tom Carper (Amtrak Board member) still reside in Macomb? Lord only knows how any beers I drink under one of his roofs when he was in Macomb. LOL
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));
