Correction: This article should not have said that because of existing rampant underage drinking and security problems, the Bear's Lair may limit entertainment events to people who are 21 or older. Actually, the restriction may be made because of potential problems that could arise as a result of opening the Bear's Lair food court during evening events at the Bear's Lair Pub. The article should have made it clear that the Bear's Lair Pub is licensed to serve alcohol in the food court.

Historically, students in our country have been on the forefront of social, intellectual and political activism. Just 50 years ago the concept of civil rights for African Americans was practically non-existent. It was the organized efforts of the students on America's campuses that galvanized the Civil Rights Movement. Just 30 years ago, America was fighting an unjust war in a place where it had no business. It was the united activities of campus youth that initiated the anti-war in Vietnam movement that eventually led to U.S. withdrawal from Indochina. Just 20 years ago a racist government ruled South Africa. It was the students who came together to oppose apartheid in South Africa that led to the establishment of a majority democracy in South Africa in 1994.
