Howdy concerned readers!
Well, another term, another group of frosh. Another group of frosh searching for horizons to expand, envelopes to push, fresh starts and new beginnings... Hopefully, the rigours and red-tape of academia will put them in their place quickly, else, the rest of us are in for a loooong fall term.
To the frosh, I must inform you of the phrase "the more things change, the more they stay the same." This is true of the transition from high school to university, and it is true in spades. In short, look before you leap, and in the case that you have already leapt, good luck.
To the upper years, although mathNEWS appreciates your continuing loyal readership and will praise you highly for undisclosable reasons, just remember that you too were once frosh. Exercise restraint, understanding and, of course, core muscles. Not to say that you should give the frosh a free pass or awe them with your amazing core muscles, but please don't kill them. We ran out of closets to hide the skeletons in last year... And then we had a FEDS election.
Speaking of murder, group project season is amongst us! I heartily look forward to the disposal of the bodies of whatever team member bats an eyelash at me the wrong way... And you should too! I'm thinking I'll hide them under the floorboards in my bedroom, or your bedroom, whichever leads to me not getting caught. Damn those team members and their eyelashes... and core muscles...
mastHEAD Question: What are you looking forward to this term?
