WETS spring fundraiser in progress
When WETS-FM (89.5 MHz) went on the air 40 years ago, the radio station operated from a slightly renovated old house, had a staff of five, and broadcast for only 12 hours each day. The closest thing to locally-generated content was local hosts playing classical music from vinyl LPs.

AN EXTRA WEEK OF CLASS
Because education shouldn’t be a mad dash
In an article earlier this semester, I offered an idea on how to improve the attendance policy on campus.

The rationale was that the university could still “weed out” and “guide” the younger students like it aims to do with the current policy.
