Great times, Golden Oles

They don't bring iPods or laptops to the library. They are never running to class, procrastinating on a paper, tormenting the campus squirrels or text-messaging their roommate about dinner plans. They aren't worrying about what to do with their major or how to make a living after life on the Hill. They don't check their e-mail 50 times a day. But these people are still Oles.

'United 93' tackles terror with grace

"United 93," Paul Greengrass's film about the Sept. 11 high jacking of the United Airlines flight that crashed outside of Shanksville, Penn., is a stunning film that documents, in real time, the events on that flight.
