Just because a cat always lands on its feet does not mean that throwing it from the top of the Geary Theater is a good thing to do. And just because we are allowed to express ourselves freely, we should not use those freedoms to justify irrelevant, unnecessary, and harmful displays and actions. Legality does not equal morality. The fact that slavery once was legal in the South didn't make it right, nor was a compelling enough reason to keep it around. And all speech is not harmless simply because the constitution protects it.

Perhaps it is because of geography that the College of Eastern Utah has a very conservative attitude in its campus atmosphere. In this influential time of our social development, the impact is felt throughout the rest of our lives. This happens everyday because liberal ideas are misunderstood and therefore alienated. Because college may be the first time that many students are exposed to different ideas, it is vital for our education to actively cultivate a community that encourages the marketplace of ideas, and accepts everyone's differences.

The 2003-04 school year officially started at the College of Eastern Utah last week. Sophomores and freshman alike are frantically trying to establish majors while embarking on the ever-pressing task of being remembered by their peers. This seems to be one of the highest priorities of students at CEU. This is due to the pressure from social views of the ideal college experience. Doing things such as hitting the game winning home run, running for ASCEU or establishing a popular club (A.J. room 209) profiles the opportunities given to students to shine amongst the rest.

Registering for college can be an exciting time, especially for someone who is just starting out on the college path. It isn't filled with all of the normal chaos involved in high school. You don't have to worry much about getting beat up or having your head shoved in a toilet bowl for wearing geaky looking cloths or for being yourself.

Welcome, to the new freshmen, and welcome back to all the returning students!   You have all made an excellent choice in coming here to receive your higher education.   It is a superb institution, and it's wonderful to have everyone here.   It is so nice to drive past the dorms and see the parking lots full, and people hustling around campus.     The beginning of the school year is such an exciting time.   It is a time of change and growth.   We will all be experiencing many firsts during the next year.
