There was a veritable buzz about campus Tuesday.

This year’s freshman class is making a habit of breaking records.
Harris Pastides entered the ring as USC’s president at as bad a time as he could have imagined. It was 2008, and the recession would deliver blow after blow in budget cuts. The first one came quick, then another, and another.
The last time USC’s website was updated was at least 10 years ago. To put that into perspective, in 2003: Myspace had just come out, Ruben Studdard won American Idol and Beyonce had just released “Dangerously In Love.” That was quite a while ago, in other words.
In last week’s editorial, we predicted that the improvement to this year’s ticketing system would help keep students at the games. We meant we hoped students would stay inside Williams-Brice Stadium, not out in the tailgating lots.
If you don’t live on, or at least relatively close to campus, then it’s almost a given that you have to drive to get your classes. That is, of course, if you can find a parking space remotely close to your classes.
For students putting themselves through school, finding the time and funds to get professional attire for interviews can be challenging. The sharp and polished look of business wear is a privilege many of us overlook, but some of us can’t afford it. To combat the problem, SG’s newest project, Carolina Closet, a service designed to alleviate this problem, is in the works and should be introduced in a short time.
Until 1963, black students weren’t allowed to enroll at USC.
Except for the students who somehow — we’re still confused about this one — managed to lose their CarolinaCards after 4 p.m. the Wednesday before the Thursday night home opener, the new student ticketing system seems to be running smoothly this year.
When you vote for mayor in Columbia, do you realize that you aren’t deciding who really runs the city? Instead, what you get to do when you go to the voting booths is an opportunity to vote for a part-time politician who has little control of city government.
Student Government has covered up a section of code in their constitution written to manage a proposed house of delegates for student organizations for years.
More than 150 people were ejected from Williams-Brice Stadium during Thursday’s game against UNC, marring the season opening victory, according to USC’s Division of Law and Enforcement Safety. Of the 151 removed, 16 face criminal charges that consist, unsurprisingly, of entering the student section without a wristband, possessing and attempting to conceal alcohol and disorderly conduct.
Carolina Productions paid comedian Ahmed Ahmed $5,000 to perform on campus last semester. Did you have to Google his name? That’s OK; we had to, too.
Columbia police have vowed to channel their focus away from underage drinking and onto gang violence and unlawful weapons, namely in the Five Points area.
City council’s plan to solve the homelessness problem through eviction isn’t much of a plan at all.
The mad scramble and general insanity of finals week will forever be a rite of passage in college, but at least USC took a step toward easing our troubles with the implementation of an online system for study room reservations, complete with mobile capabilities.
Spoiler alert: The chief academic officer for the university thinks students shouldn’t skip class for a football game. Wait, does he know the Gamecocks are No. 6?
If there’s anything to take from Carolina Productions’ fall schedule, it’s that you’d better like comedy.
The Daily Gamecock loves freshmen. They provide us with a lot of new recruits, tons of stories and overall, it’s just fun to watch them get acclimated to campus. But 4,900 of them? That’s a bit of a concern.
Since it was introduced last fall, we’ve talked a lot about Healthy Carolina’s proposed “Tobacco-Free USC” initiative.
