Signs of this change in academic prospects were first noticed last Friday, September 30, and students, staff, and faculty are at a complete loss as to why.

“It’s like we’re missing the cog that made the Center for Academic Resources run smoothly,” said Kent Eaton, Interim Academic Dean. “We KARe A whole lot about our students so we MAY try to have something figured out soon.”

While students, staff, and faculty try desperately to understand just what went wrong, athletes are left to their own devices in trying to find academic success.

He continued: “Too bad we’ve DON’T have ANYONE like that around…”
