Low Brings Distinctive Sound to the íSco
by John MacDonald

Representing the ’Sco’s first major rock act of the semester, Low took the stage Friday night to a packed house and a willing audience. Despite their hushed harmonies and minimalist melodies, enough of the essential intimacy of the Duluth, Minnesota trio’s sound managed to assert itself above the clang of breaking beer bottles and the rumble of laughter and shuffling feet.

Perspectives
Clarifying APA Studies Position

To the Editors:

We as members of the Asian Pacific American Studies Committee are writing a response to last week’s article, “National Group Boycotts Sociology Position Search,” and the editorial piece entitled “College Diversity Not Reflected in Tenure.” We would like to make clarifications regarding the issues presented in the article and editorial. The pieces focus on the dissonance between the Association for Asian American Studies (AAAS) and Oberlin College. However, as evidenced by the quotes within the article, the AAAS as an organization is NOT BOYCOTTING Oberlin College. Rather, several specific members have decided to sign a petition supporting the case of Antoinette Charfauros-McDaniel. The article headline portrays the entire Asian American Studies caucus as fully supporting Antoinette Charfauros. We as students are more concerned with the development of Comparative American Studies, the future of Asian Pacific American studies at Oberlin College, and the communication between students, administration and sociology department. The pieces in the Review obscure the issues that are of greater importance and ultimately oversimplify the nature of the situation.
