What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Scholarships should raise with tuition Pane 11 Student opinion JENNA KESLER Ahh... the holidays. Snuggling up with a hot cup of cocoa and looking out into a winter wonderland. Finals are done, and you feel like you are on top of the world. Life is good. Until... the dreaded semester bill is thrown on your lap. Your cocoa turns sour and you feel like the anxiety once again has consumed your body - and your checkbook. And maybe it’s just me. I take pride in going to a school with a top-notch-education and the most incredible, loving people I’d ever find. But I have to remind myself of that many times when two sum­ mers of work wages goes into one semester at our beloved Carroll. Now, I understand that in the end, it is all worth it. But the thing that really gets under my skin is that tuition is in­ credibly on the rise, but the schol­ arship you receive as a freshman remains stagnant throughout the rest of your college career. Good deal for every freshman because they receive a heightened scholar­ ship. But what of the rest of us? No wonder the all of the sudden people wonder why students are mysteriously disappearing as sophomores, juniors, and even seniors. We maybe have enough to get us going when we first come to Carroll, but where are the opportu­ nities to keep us here to graduate? Wouldn’t it make sense to reward upper-classmen for their efforts, especially if they work hard and keep the GPA that got More TUITION Page 15 Things to do: December 7th: Rockband Free Play 6 to 11 in upper cube - sponsored by the Gaming Club 8th: Senior chirstmans party at Bert and Ernie's; 9 pm 8th Snow Shoeing Hike sponsored by CAMP 10th - 14th: Dead Week (STUDY!) 12th: Classic Games Break - Upper Cube 2 pm to 6 pm - sponsored by the Gaming Club 17th -21st: FINALS WEEK! 10th 11th 12th 14th 19th 21st 25th 26th January Men's and Women's Basketball vs Tech 6 and 8 pm New Student Orientation Men's and Women's Basketball vs UM Western 6 and 8 pm Class Begins Brad Paisley Concert No Class Gaming Night - Rock Band Contest 6 to 11 in the upper Cube Tele Marking Ski Day - sponsored by CAMP • 4 1 L o o k i n g f o r s o m e t h i n g t o d o ?
