Opinions: A few pointers for college success from a departing Sun Devil

THORSON: After three semesters of my opinions, State Press readers will finally get a reprieve next semester while I focus on a little something called graduation.

But before I give up my newsprint soapbox, I have a few bits of advice and some wisdom that I've picked up during my time at ASU that I would like to share with you all:

WADE: One of the so-called perks of being a columnist is all of the fan mail you receive. And by fan mail, I mean e-mails, letters, phone calls and the odd box left at our front doors.

Here are some of the highlights from what I received. The names, of course, have been omitted to protect the sacred reader-writer privilege.

It's always interesting to see the types of responses a column will elicit. It's worthy of note how an opinion piece, especially one that is not political or meant to be controversial in any way, can elicit such divergent replies.

Opinions: Sex, politics and football
As everyone at The State Press was getting ready for the final paper of the semester, we decided it would be an appropriate time to look back on an exciting semester.
