A few weeks ago, the CS/SE department dedicated a new product usability lab. As it turns out, though, the CS majors aren’t the only ones with new toys to play with this year.
The ECE department dedicated a Product Testing Facility during Homecoming week. The facility, funded by donations fromTexas Instruments (TI) and Eagle Test Systems, is aimed at teaching Rose-Hulman ECE undergraduates about a concept called “product test engineering.”
I met sophomore James Jeffries today, and was left with the following wise words: “like the rising sun appears, so does the Career Fair at Rose-Hulman.”
It is indeed the time of year, once again, where somewhere in the region of 130 companies appear in little maroon partitions on the floor of the SRC Fieldhouse. It’s the time of year when the bookstore, knowing the Rose student as it does, sets outthe huge stacks of professional-looking note-folios, which appeared en masse at Wednesday’s Career Fair.
Mugabe calls for ‘friendly relationships’ with the West
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe offered a refreshing change of tradition during his opening speech to Zimbabwe’s Parliament on Tuesday. Rather than the usual anti-West, anti-sanction rhetoric, Mugabe spoke conciliatorily and called for “co-operative relations.”
Members of the opposition party are reluctant to read too much into Mugabe’s statement, but many foreigners with businessin Zimbabwe see the speech as a positive sign. Mining companies have frozen new construction in Zimbabwe, fearing state takeover or reassignment of their properties. However, Mugabe seemed to assuage some of these fears with promises of a new mining bill headed for Parliament.
Rose-Hulman is a relatively safe school, as colleges go. Even vandalism is a rare occurance. So when a police car shows upon a Friday night outside a broken glass door in the student union, some people tend to get concerned.
However, this particular case is nothing to worry about– a member of a band that performed in the Union last week simply bumped into the door and cracked the glass, according to John Wolfe, Assistant Director of Public Safety.
