One year strong
How did this happen?!
Believe me, it's just as hard for us to comprehend
as it is for you that The Whittington Weekly is one year
old. Could it be that just 365 days ago we introduced this jagged little
pill to the largest college in the Clinton area? Just 12 months ago when
we were forced to take the site down I remember feeling that our dreams
had been short-lived. Thankfully, that was not the case and here we are
now, still kicking.
During the last year, we've made quite an
impact through this web site, and so it's only fitting that we take a stroll
through memory lane and look back at our biggest stories from our first
six issues. Re-live these controversial events of our college's legacy.
Do you remember this stuff?

on campus. In related news, construction on the Quad steps also came to
Answer? Kugel Pt.2
During the long drought of the summer months,
we paid a visit to the campus looking for inspiration, anticipating the
creation of a mini- issue to tide everyone over. But we only had to go
as far as our mailboxes to discover that the story was waiting on us...along
with some excessive fines.

And finally, our triumphant return came at
the end of the Fall 2000 semester after a creative lag. The timing just
seemed to be right, and there was no way we could pass up making fun of
the New Men's flood.
Men's Nautical Disaster
Without question, it has been one heck of
a ride. Never in our wildest dreams did we anticipate that the Whitt
Weekly would earn this much acclaim and success. And in all honesty,
it's only because of you -- the students, faculty and alumni. Without our
readers, we would be nothing. So, this convocation is in honor of you.
