That would be directly due to the attraction of the World Wide Web now accessible to the student body, free of charge, in the computer lab locat- ed on the second floor of the business building. For the past semester students have been able to set up their own e-mail address, browse the web and actu- ally cash in on what most every .other university has had access to for at least the last couple of years. In that time, Wesleyan has continued to false start tin the com- mencement of the Campus backbone which is scheduled to begin in March with the laying of the cable. The lone handful of computers in the second floor lab have been the students' only link to cyberspace. The laying of the cable is expected to be finished in May, the wiring concluded in June and the whole sys- te...

A Wesleyan group met the Palestinian leader in November and formed their own opinions. "He shook our hands and signed autographs. He was very calm. Very peaceful," said Sopho- more music major Rachael Griffin. Griffin was one of 16 students, two faculty members and two pro- fessors who went on a 10-day trip to Israel during Thanksgiving break. . The class, offering three hours of credit in history, political science or religion, met once a week last semester. It was taught and led by Dr. H. Ibrahim Salih, professor of political science, and Dr. Ron Ballard, professor of religion. Before the trip, the class was visited by a rabbi and other guest speakers. "The purpose of the trip was not only a religious experience, but- also, to sensitize the students to the political and economic realities of the country," said Salih...

But at 5: I K p.m., there I was, sitting on the couch, wondering which advertisers would prove to be worthy enough of the high price tag. I had seen sneak peeks of some of the commercials in the week leading up to the football fest and that was enough: I was hooked.
