That’snot so bad.
In keeping with our reckless, devil-may-careimage, our of-ﬁce has absolutely no concrete information on the
’sformative years readily available. What follows is the storythat’s been passed down from editor to editor for over fortyyears.In the late 1950s, the University of Regina planned the con-struction of several new buildings on the campus grounds.One of these proposed buildings was a bell tower on the aca-demic green. If you look out on the academic green today,the ﬁrst thing you’ll notice is that it has absolutely nothingresembling a bell tower.The University never got a bell tower, but what it did getwas the
,anewspaper that serves as a symbolic belltower on campus, a loud and clear voice belonging to eachand every student.

Be thoughtful,not shitty.
When the announcementcame out about the changesto the theatre program,it waslikewhen that dude inCalifornia ate a guy’sface,and weall thought the zombieapocalypse had begun.The
spoke with TomChase,who says it’s not theend of theatre at U of R. The Cougar women’s soccer team is surprisingly dominantthis year.Remember when thesoccer team wrote into theDeclass and asked if thesports editor was an assholeor a douchebag? Just to clarify,I’m an asshole.Our arts writer,Kyle went tothe Rush concert in Saskatoonand apparently went on acrazy-ass acid trip.Or,he just went to a Rush concert.Samething,pretty much.He shareshis strange concert adventureon page 9. Taouba Khelifa suggests that being understanding of other people when theywrong youinstead of reacting aggres-sively is a sign of strength andpatience,not weakness.Inother words,just because oth-ers are shitty,doesn’t mean you have to be shitty too.
