ResLife increases room inspections

Students living in residence halls may be cleaning their rooms a little more often, thanks to a new safety inspection policy enacted by Residential Life this semester.

The policy increases the number of room inspections performed by ResLife staff from one -- during winter break when residents are not living in the halls -- to three a year, including one each semester while students inhabit the halls, said ResLife Director Susan Mulligan.

Award-winning humorist says career wasn't about work

Laughter echoed from Murdock Hall Tuesday afternoon as humorist Dave Barry spoke to more than 200 students about becoming a columnist, being a guest on "the Tonight Show" and witnessing 75 pounds of cocaine fall from the Miami sky, among other things.

Barry, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for The Miami Herald, said he became a columnist because he did not work well with facts as a reporter. "I just didn't fit in the quick-thinking, newsgathering mold," he said. Barry started his career by sending his columns to a small, local newspaper in Pennsylvania each week when he was working full time for a writing seminar.

Get it Out

Jacie* lounges comfortably on a cream-colored leather chair just weeks before she will have the sexual reassignment surgery necessary for her to become a woman. The political science and history sophomore pushes back her dark, red-highlighted hair as she recalls how a fundamentalist Christian counselor caused her a painful bout of depression and self-doubt over her status as a male-to-female transsexual.

"Doctors aren't supposed to fuck with your head and play games," Jacie says. "That's nowhere in the Hippocratic oath."

Her feminine voice rises in volume as she describes the mental scars the therapy left behind.
