Cheers to our beloved Ms. Letha Mattingly, who has dedicated over 30 years of her life to serving the Transylvania community. Happy retirement and thank you!

Jeers to the online course evaluations that now require us to rate our classes on our own time. The days of writing page-long responses to postpone actual class appear to be officially over.

Cheers to Think Your Drink for hosting a comedy night this past weekend, complete with O’Charley’s appetizers. However, …

Jeers to the second comedian for leaving voice mails with certain members of the audience who chose to leave the performance early. Why would you draw attention to the fact that people don’t like your jokes? Poorly played, my friend.

Cheers to the Student Government Association for providing doughnuts and coffee in the library during finals week this year. There’s not a whole lot to look forward to during this time of the year, so every little thing helps.

Jeers to the recent water main break. Apparently everything has now been fixed, but I’d still stay away from the downstairs water fountain in the library if I were you. …

Cheers to Brandon Rash and the Pioneers basketball team for recently defeating in-state rival Centre College.

Jeers to the anticipated noise level in the library during finals week. You would think that the amount of talking would be inversely proportional to the importance of what students are studying for, but that simply is not the case.

Cheers to President R. Owen Williams for inviting the senior class to his home for dinner. It’s a generous gesture to say the least — as long as he’s a good cook.

Jeers to letters of recommendation. Students don’t like asking for them, I would assume that professors don’t like writing them, and I’m pretty sure that most of the time nobody ends up reading them.

Cheers to Crimson Christmas and everyone who helped out and donated. It’s refreshing to be reminded of the true spirit of Christmas.

Jeers to anyone who doesn’t like the movie “Elf.”
