    I just saw this. So, do you think there will be any changes in the coming up year? How could there not be?

    How can you retire from something you own?

    One does not have to practice or condone sin to be relevant.
    One does not have to shun all change in order to be 'fundamental'.

    Business owners do it all the time. They just sell of their shares in the business. I wonder how many shares he owns?

    The only thought that comes to my mind is "good riddance."

    But I'm guessing they're going to still be running things from behind the curtain anyway.
    Steven Avery quoting Wikipedia uncritically:

    St. Catherine's monastery still maintains the importance of a letter, typewritten (?) in 1844 with an original signature of Tischendorf confirming that he borrowed those leaves


    Note, it is not the Hort style to try to make anything clear by actually giving examples.

    Which makes Steven Avery the biggest Hortian of all.....

    Heh. You're probably right. Its pretty difficult for one who founded something many years ago that has been their pride and livelihood to ignore it completely after retiring. Since applying for TRACS, there have been a lot of administrative changes (some of these changes may have occurred prior to TRACS application).

    1. In the dorms, a student no longer gets demerits for failing room cleaning inspection every morning. From what I hear from some students who work with me, room inspection is not as strenuous as it used to be. Instead, they have "infractions" that, if accumulated to a certain amount, requires a small fee. Also (a big one in my opinion) students do not have to have their bed made when their floorleader inspects their room in the morning. If they are sleeping in their bed, they can actually keep sleeping. Also, the rigorous Saturday morning room inspection that would deprive one of his chances to get to sleep in and have to scrub the shower spotless has been replaced by a Friday evening inspection that is much less strict. That means that students can ACTUALLY SLEEP IN on Saturday! What a concept!

    2. Students no longer get demerits for being late or absent from class. It used to be 5 demerits for being late and 25 for being absent.

    3. Men students no longer have to wear a suit and tie to dinner! Men students also no longer have to wear a dress shirt and tie in the morning up to chapel! Imagine that.

    4. The whole "this is an unchaperoned area, I'll have to write you up" concept seems to have vanished, because men and women students can walk each other to their dormitories (the building, not the actual rooms). Previously, men and women students had to meet and say "good bye" at their designated "dating" event locations (except when meeting for a fine arts event).

    5. The "caste system" concept is gone (mostly), because staff, faculty, and graduate students can hang out with undergraduate students at and during student events if they are dating. I'm sure this condition is the case to prevent staff events from being flooded with students or keep student events from being flooded by staff. I'm still kind of hoping that they will some day eliminate the restriction from allowing mixed group students under age 23 from being able to go off the campus together. This is not because I am a perverted cradle robber, but because I feel weird when I come across a female PCC student while off campus who recognizes me and we're technically not allowed to speak to each other. The whole encounter and forced ignorance feels weird and rude and must look ridiculous to an outside observer who may think that PCC students don't like each other then see students from other colleges say "Hey! How's it going!" to each other.

    6. Instead of pinning printed campus events to a couple cork boards, PCC now has big TV screens all over the campus show the date, time, weather, and campus events in high quality presentations and animation. This was something that TRACS suggested as an improvement.

    7. Most of the rules and handbooks for students and staff can be accessed online outside the campus. Thus, prospective students can actually see the handbook before they arrive instead of the seeming "bait and switch" students used to get by getting the actual handbook when they enrolled only to decide to leave because they don't think they can live under some of the rules.

    I know that there have been many other changes that have eased tension between students and administration that I can't remember. I think PCC is heading in the right direction in some of these changes rather than becoming more "liberal" as some ifbxers would claim.
    I believe in tolerance. Anyone who disagrees will not be tolerated.
