Students returned to classes yesterday, taking in riveting lectures ofECON 707 and STATS 141 . 

What course do you think the U of A should offer that it doesn't?

I think it should offer one about the sexual I think more jjnior level nanotechnol- 

habits of insects end invertebrates. I ogy courses and more adventurous 

think that it is such a fascinating world cojrses like Whitewater kayaking and 

out there, and there are so many insects scuba diving. Or jus: an advent jrecojrse 

and so many invertebrates, and we don't period, 
know very much about them. I am sure 
they have fantastic sexual lifestyles 


Maybe some 3 ersian courses I know there are some human sexual¬ 

ity courses but.. |ust at a basic level, so 
maybe if they had more of that kind of 
stuff More performative, more higher 
level things. There are a lot of classes 
that are interesting, but they only hit the 
surface. If they went deeper they might 
bring more interest to students
