heated debate ensued Wednesday when a proposal was suggested to replace
Oberlin Colleges Credit/No Entry grading system with a standard
grading scale. A group of about thirty students gathered at the student
forum held this week by the Educational Plans and Policies Committee (EPPC)
to discuss three major policy changes the committee is proposing. The
purpose of a student forum, which was announced a week ago via an OCMR
notice, is to elicit student input before the EPPC makes its recommendations
to the College faculty. The proposals must pass a faculty vote to become
a part of college policy. Though the EPPC does take students views
into account in making its recommendations, there is no mandate that they
must do so. The recommended policy changes will most likely be voted upon
in April, though any approved changes will take years to come into effect.

form of West African music when Alhaji Papa Susso, a Griot from the Gambia,
performed in Lord Lounge on Monday evening. Are you going to dance
tonight? Susso asked enthusiastically as he took the stage.
to grips with the revelation that the Oberlin mens basketball team
had used an ineligible player all season, the College has begun to react
to the reality that the most successful season in 10 years has ended without
a single win.
To the Editors:
like to thank the perspectives editor for his insightful analysis of the
war on drugs presented in the Feb. 8 edition of the Review in response
to the Super Bowl anti-drug adds. In light of the perspectives piece last
week criticizing the initial article I would like to offer some additional
information that will better connect the anti-drug campaign in our country
to the war on drugs and more recently the war on terrorism in Colombia.
