Student treks to Iowa to aid Edwards' bid

Adam Duckworth hopes that in 2004, John Edwards will be the 44th president of the United States.

From start to finish of the North Carolina senator's campaign, Duckworth, a political science sophomore, will try to pass on Edwards' beliefs and cause.

On Friday morning, Duckworth climbed into the 15-passenger van that took him across three states in the last days before the Iowa caucus.

As the van coasted along the highway and through the Wyoming fog, Duckworth received the news he desperately wanted to hear, as the latest polls of the Iowa caucus indicated that Edwards was in a dead heat with three other candidates. [Read article]

    Irritated by scheduling blunders? Students in this line would have quickly switched places with students in today's world, who can easily add or drop classes using the online WebReg system of class scheduling. In a line stretching onto the Mall, students nearly 30 years ago had to wait outside Bear Down Gym to receive materials for schedule changes during their free drop-add day. 1975 was the first year students had to pick up their six-part pre-registration forms rather than receive them in the mail.
