A loan no longer

WE WANT GORE

Following a trend of liberal arts
colleges eliminating loans for needy
students, Williams College, a presti-
gious liberal arts college in William-
stown, Mass., announced Thursday
that it will replace all loans with
grants. The decision will cost $1.8
million per year for the college of
about 2,000 students.
Williams is the third prominent
liberal arts college to eliminate loans
this year, following announcements
earlier this year by Amherst College
and Davidson College. Princeton Uni-
versity was the first major American
college to replace loans with grants
in 2001.
RESISTANCE TO RIAA
The UniversityofOregonhas chal-
lenged the Recording Industry Asso-
ciation of America in federal district
court, arguing that the association
cannot require colleges to identify
the registered user of an IP address
caught sharingmusic illegally.
The RIAA issues pre-litigation let-
ters to colleges asking them to for-

ward IP addresses caught sharing.
Those users are given the chance to
settle or take the matter the court.
Those users are given the chance to
settle or take the matter the court.
The University of Oregon has
argued that it cannot determine
definitively whether the owner of
an IP address was the one engag-
ing in file-sharing. It argues that
much of the sharing has been
over open wireless networks or
in dorm rooms where multiple
people could have signed onto the
Internet.
OPEN SOURCE MATERIAL
A University of Washington at
Bothell professor assigned students
in her environmental history course
to edit an entry on wikipedia.org as a
final project..
Wikipedia has been widely criti-
cized as a research tool because any-
one can edit entries. Martha Groom,
the professor, told the Chronicle
of Higher Education that was one
reason she assigned the project. "Is

there crap on Wikipedia? Sure there
is," she said. "So let's be part of mak-
ing it better."
Many entries written by Groom's
students were modified or reject-
ed by Wikipedia administrators
because they argued a specific point
of view or because they overlapped
information that was already posted
elsewhere.
RIOT PROTECTION
Students at the University of
Rhode Island have cried foul after
residents of Wiley Hall, a dormi-
tory at the college, were prevented
from leaving the dorm after the
Boston Red Sox won the World
Series early Monday morning.
Some were trying to take to the
streets to join an estimated 700
others in celebration.
Students questioned whether the
Wiley Hall director had the right
to make the decision, reported The
Good 5 Cent Cigar, the campus news-
paper.
