Departing student says final farewell to campus
I’ve spent my first three years in
the United States in Denton at NT. I
have a special feeling toward this
university, as well as the United
States. I feel a little bit sad because
after May 15, NTSU will no longer
exist (abstractly), and 1 will have
Before I leave this university, 1
would like to share my feelings with
you. Maybe you are not familiar with
an Oriental’s way of thinking. But if
you listen to me a few minutes, you,
perhaps, will understand me quite

human existence and solve the conflict
which often occurs in our daily lives?
When I went away from my dear
country and hometown, I buried some
ambitions, tears and dreams there. 1
felt a little bit sad about the place I
had been raised and little bit glad about
the place 1 was going to begin my
new, unknown life. I still have ambi-
tions, even though they are not as
strong as when I was a teen-ager. I
still search for golden dreams, even
though they have paled somehow.
And, I am still full of tears, either
for happiness or sadness.
But today 1 will say goodbye, NT.
Thanks! Without the help of the In-
tensive English Language Institute
teachers, 1 would not have made great
progress in my communication, read-
ing and writing of English. Without
the instruction of my adviser and the
professors of my department and other
departments, I would not have obtain-
ed broad knowledge, independent
thinking and good grades. Without
scholarships and financial aids from
different sources, 1 would not have
been able to finish my degree.
I must thank all the employers I
worked for on-campus and off. Re-
gardless of working as a waitress or
a cleaner, a housekeeper or physical
occupational therapy assitant, a re-
tirement-building director or a com-
puter operator, my employers taught
me not only skills, but also about life.
But, don’t think everyone always
said "yes” to me or that everything
was always easy. Often “no” was

the answer, and some “no’s” hurt
me deeply. But, I always tried to
remember the encouragement and
forget the disappointments. With the
help and experience I did receive, I
was able to support myself inde-
pendently and cope with my situation
reasonably. I tried to do everything
my best, in order to get my advanced
education and training, because I
brought nothing coming into the
United States. I came to this country
with only my faith — longing for
freedom and searching for knowledge.
I am going to keep my faith contin-
ually, never losing or giving it up.
Because without my faith, I have

Come on guys, get serious!
Caroline Montigny’s column in the
March 30 NT Daily is an embarrass-

age-gossip page, not a college news-

of avant-garde hair
While reading Caroline Montigny’s
column in the March 30 edition of
The Daily, I suddenly experienced
deja vu. I thought I was in junior high
school once again. 1 had to pinch
myself to make sure I was awake and
still in college.
The column I am referring to was
Ms Montigny’s account of her first
crush, which happened over spring
break. The writer is supposedly a
21-year-old junior who became in-
fatuated with Anthony Michael Hall
during the viewing of his recent
movie. She then searches out infor-
mation about Hall in teen magazines,
but upon seeing his new avant-garde
haircut, she instantly dismisses her
love for him.
Is this really what a college news-
paper should be printing? I believe
everyone has a right to her or his
opinion. But, 1 don’t believe Ms
Montigny’s definition of avant-garde
as "something awful” is correct
it Obviously, Ms.
Montigny is not open
to new and original
ideas. Maybe that’s
why her first crush
was at 21. ??
Avant-garde means a leader in new
and unconventional styles. Obviously,
Ms. Montigny is not open to new and
original ideas. Maybe that’s why her
first crush was at 21.
Anyway, the point I am trying to
make is, I’m sure The Daily could
find more mature and newsworthy
items for their columns. 1 would be
very embarrassed if a visiting guest
from another college were to read the
NT paper. They might think the NT
campus is filled with immature, nar-
row-minded, over-aged adolescents —
which I know it is not. I hope the
editors will be more selective in
choosing the future columns, or they
will definitely (and might already I be
losing quite a few readers.
not cheap shots
Now that The NT Daily has been
kind enough to let us students fling
mud at each other—back and forth on
a single page—I would like to say this
to Mr. Randy Ahmann.
I appreciate your thoughts on want-
ing peace, and I completely agree,
It’s nice to see our U S. administration
and Gorbachev’s government having
talks. But anyway, Randy, what I was
trying to say was the drawing of a
flag-covered coffin with a recruiting
slogan beside it is like an ignorant’s
view of today’s armed forces, through
the eyes of “World News Tonight "
As for peace, why not make draw-
ings of Khadafi with a halo on his
head, or Nicaraguan children counting
apples instead of machine guns?
Sorry. Randy. Fm very much for
world peace, but Bruce Lewis' cheap
shots at our armed forces are not the
way to get this message across
