What’s Your Beef With Mines?
ASCSM President Casey Morse Answers Your Questions
:I hate Saturday ﬁnals!
:In order to give everyonetheir finals, we absolutelyneed 5 days. In fact ﬁnals goon from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm on all 5 days. Due toclassroom space limitationsand the need for graduationon that following Friday, theﬁrst day of ﬁnals must starton that Saturday. The stu-dents worked very hard to getDead Day to offset the Sat-urday ﬁnals. Without DeadDay, we would still have totake ﬁnals either on Saturdayor on Dead Day.
:Can’t add moneyto my Blaster-card onlineany-more.
:The website used for man-aging your Blastercard is cur-rently not operating. Therewill be a new website soonthat you can use to manageyour accounts online.
:Physics sucks ass
:I agree. Unfortunately,it is required for ABET ac-creditation. The CAPA helpsessions are what got methrough Physics. Just ﬁghtthrough it and never look back.
:Why are the ﬁrst two years“weed-out” classes? Whyare more people getting ac-cepted?
:The ﬁrst two yearsare not techni-cally “weed-out” classes.They arede-signed to ensure thestudents get a strong graspof the required core courses.They might seem like “weed-out” classes because the in-formation is not typically allthat intriguing. Hopefully,the information you learn becomes more interesting asyou progress through your curriculum, and it offsets thefact that the courses actuallyget more difﬁcult.

:In choosing this world-class engineering institution,students are typically plac-ing more emphasis on their career path than their sociallife. Fortunately, the schooldoes offer many programsthat encourage social activitythrough the Mines ActivityCouncil and our 130+ clubsand organizations. Addition-ally, we are convenientlylocated in an area of thecountry that is surrounded bymany other higher educationinstitutions. For the goodnature of all of us (malesand females alike), getout and explore beforecomplaining.
:Why is E-Daysnot the ﬁrst week-end in April thisyear? Also,why isn’t therea lacrosse or rugby gameduring E-Days thisyear?
:We must makesure that E-Days doesnot conﬂict with Easter or the EIT’s every year. Ithas conveniently fallen thefirst weekend of April for the past several years, butthat was not possible thisyear. The lacrosse and rugbyteams do not specificallyschedule their games as E-Days events. Again, thatwas just a coincidence inthe past.has kept admissions at a con-stant for the past couple years because we don’t have thefacilities for more students.This year an addi-tional 2,000stu-dentshaveap- plied com- pared to last year, and there-fore admissions standards areactually increasing.
:Why do the guys keepcomplaining about the ratioand the quality of girls here?It gets the girls pretty angry!They could have gone toanother school if they justwanted to pick up girls.
Correction From March 7 Issue
There were two factual errors in the articleentitled “FE Meets Biology.” Bioengineeringclasses have been offered on campus since2000 and have been offered every semester since 2001. None of the bioengineering classesare taught at Red Rocks. The Oredigger apolo-gies for these errors.
