Dr., Judy Simpson, English professor, has the answer: Texas Wesleyan's new AEGIS program. AEGIS stresses learning competency, rather than information retention. It is basically how well do you know what you know, rather than what all do you know. About four years ago, Dr. Simpson and other faculty members decided that a new approach should be taken to education at Wesleyan. Colleges across the nation are reporting that an ever increasing number of college graduates in America say that the information they learned in college, outside of their major courses, had little or nothing to...

Most organizations reward their employees who give their "time, talent and treasure," as Methodists are fond of saying, to community service. Assistance to God's creatures who are less fortunate, especially those homeless through no fault of their own, is customarily considered as charitable, even godly work by traditions reaching back to biblical times. I seize this opportunity to publicly applaud the Rambler staff for their recent temporary shelter afforded a helpless kitten until a home could be found, rather than relegating the infant animal to City Animal Control cer- tain extermination.
