Volunteering offers more than social service hours

It was one hour, one night that started as one huge inconvenience.We all have good intentions that often get interrupted by daily activities; my commitment to hand out candy at Boo at the Zoo my freshman year was no exception.

The community service activity of handing out candy to costumed children during the Halloween season sounded like a great idea in early September, but by the time the actual night rolled around, I was regretting my decision. I had papers to write, a test, not to mention a mixer I wanted to attend. Could I really spare an hour of my time?

Ladies should try modesty when picking costumes this Halloween

Little Bo Beep has lost more than her sheep. Where is the other half of her costume? Judging from what's on the costume shelves this Halloween, a woman may be out of luck unless she is ready to push up, tape up or bare all.

Do people really wear this stuff? In public?

Students: Ads provoke drinking

College students are prime tartgets for advertising about clothes, electronics, clubs and even alcohol promotions. College students ranked drinking beer as their favorite activity in a recent survey taken by the Student Monitor spring 2005 Lifestyle and Media survey of 1,200 full-time undergraduates from 100 campuses.

Alcohol producers and distributors see college students as their most valuable consumers, said Kim Miller of the Center for Science in the Public Interest based in Washington D.C.
