    10: The Best Years of U. Life
    Happy Birthday to U. Yes, your favorite college rag is turning 10. For a whole decade, U. has been bringing you the best, the worst and the weirdest of college life. Relive the news that made headlines and the trends you wish you could forget. Remember the students we covered and uncovered. And don't miss the best Quickies of the decade and some of our favorite celebrity quotes from past issues.

    Bowled Over
    If you think the old bowl system was full of crap, check out the latest bowl movements. With the new system, we'll finally have a championship game and a true No. 1 – no BS. PLUS Gridiron Gripes

    Life in the Fast Lane
    You might remember him as Smokey from the cult classic Friday. But Chris Tucker is speeding to mainstream success in Rush Hourwith Jackie Chan.

    U. LIFE
    Are you paranoid? You should be. Your personal and academic records may not be as private as you thought they were.

    Skin Deep
    A new trend that really gets under your skin.

    Men's
    What's new in the course catalog this fall? At some schools, it's "The Masculine Mystique," "Men 101" or even "Men in Literature" as male studies classes muscle their way into the curriculum.

    Stocks
    Then meet students who are bullish on the stock market.

    Beetlemania
    Students are buggin' out over the new Beetle.

    Going Balls Out
    And their going butt-nekkid just for the heck of it.
    ROCK
    On today's menu: Korn with a Centro-Matic appetizer and a little Depeche Mode for dessert.

    REEL
    Get jiggy with the Butabi brothers and take a look at a first love gone bad.

    Our students page isn't devoted to the typical high-achieving dorks who win all kinds of awards. No, this page is dedicated to the students who are doing something real - something out of the ordinary, something awesome, or something just plain weird. In this issue, two students are experienced with pizza boxes, a guy who tied the knot with a stranger and a student who rode his bike across America.
    Forget about Bill and Monica for a few minutes and check out some news that really hits home. Find out why Boston U. students are jonesing for Cliffs Notes, why the latest fad diet bites back, and why 48 freshmen from Hartford, Conn. are getting a free ride. Plus, get real with the cast of "The Real World" and read about the Tupac sighting in Wyoming.
    What's every student's favorite four-letter word? F-R-E-E. Finally a Web site that's designed especially for the cash-challenged lazy-asses of the world. Learn how you can load up on freebies like soap, shampoo and snack foods. Plus, a web site that promises free long-distance.

    What do douching, soliciting sex in library bathrooms, beaver hunting and butt licking have in common? Well, aside from being some of the favorite activities of the U. Magazine staff, they're all stories on our Quickies page. Once you read about them, they may become your favorite activities, too.

    U. VIEWS There's a lot of ranting and raving going on on this page. Readers read us the riot act. You'll also get to meet this year's crew of foxy assistant editors.

    U POLLS
    Students sound off on first date rules.

Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf
