It was 1994, and I was sitting in the second tier of my high school's auditorium. I remember it distinctly because the whole event was so comical. In front of me were the three candidates running for eighth grade class president, each candidate unique in their own regard. The final candidate to make his presidential speech that day was Haydon Mixsell. Haydon was not the most qualified of nominees. In fact his campaign had the duration of a marathon-like two days. Someone had convinced him to run and seeing nothing better to do with his time, he agreed. His speech is what clinched the presidency. Haydon stood on the podium for about 25 seconds, stiffened with stage fright, unable to articulate the most basic of words.

Clubs, teams and other organizations encourage their members to donate blood in groups; many students donate blood out of social obligation as well as for moral reasons.

Unfortunately, these privileges only extend to students on campus. In the past, students living off campus have been forced to use an agonizingly slow dial-up service for all their Internet needs.
