Down with pants! Students advocated No Pants Day outside the Regenstein Library this Friday by removing their pants and chanting anti-pants themed slogans. They encouraged others to do the same, and while they recieved several confused looks, most onlookers supported the cause by joining the protest against pants or offering encouraging words.

‘Bell’ boycott makes U of C home

The University of Chicago has become the center of a nationwide boycott against Taco Bell. These campus boycotts come at the behest of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a proto-union group from Florida.

GSB and Kellogg headed for friendlier relations

After a long rivalry between the two, a new spirit of cooperation could be in store for Chicago’s two top business schools, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business.

A fair wind blows through Chicago
Like many, you probably already know some of ‘The Rain in Spain,’ and maybe part of ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’ has become lodged in your brain. Maybe, somewhere in your subconscious, there resides a vague notion of the charming Eliza Doolittle, or the sly Professor Henry Higgins. Your most resonant impression of it may be its film version, starring the diminutive Audrey Hepburn, and the devilishly handsome Rex Harrison. When you get right down to it, chances are most of us know at least a little something about ‘My Fair Lady,’ one of the greatest and most beloved musicals to ever grace the stage or screen, and one that has firmly established its place in our collective cultural consciousness.
