Invisible Children to screen film with world champion boxer

Invisible Children will be hosting a screening of Kassim the Dream, featuring an appearance by world champion boxer Kassim “The Dream” Ouma. Ouma was kidnapped at the age of 6 by the rebel army in his home country, Uganda. Eventually, he joined the army’s boxing team and, after 12 years of fighting, defected from Africa and traveled to the United States. In America, he became the Junior Middleweight Champion of the world.

The movie will be held Monday at 8:30 p.m. in the UC I-lounge.

Interest in prep courses increases

With the stock market and employment slumping, interest in Kaplan courses on business, law, and graduate school preparation has had a 45 percent increase since Sept. 1.

Of the 245 business school admissions officers polled, 75 percent said admission has gotten more competitive.

However, over half of admissions officers said that they were planning on adding more seats, most by 2009.
