What’s great? Pets are great. Pets are the best. Your dog is the best. My cat (she is fat and soft and her name is Jazz) is the best. Every single pet is the best and that is a true fact. However, if you want to raise your pet from an A+ pet to an A++ pet, the Southern Lights Chapel in Fort Waintright is recognizing The Feast of Saint Francis by blessing pets. Bring your doggo between 1 – 2 p.m. or 7 – 8 p.m. and get them #blessed.Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Contrary to popular opinion, UAF is not just a college of petroleum engineering, wildlife management and geophysics. Though they’re increasingly glomming together for their own survival, our school continues to have a diverse and vibrant selection of liberal arts departments. But don’t take my word for it! The yearly We Are CLA open house is a fine opportunity to see (and speak to) real liberal arts professors and students up close. Current or future CLA students who participate can enter a drawing for a $500 scholarship, as well, which isn’t too shabby. You can find the open house in the Fine Arts Complex Great Hall from 3 – 5:30 p.m.Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief

Did you know that Fleetwood Mac got a star in Hollywood today in 1979? My upbringing gave me a particular fondness for 1970s rock bands. With this in mind, I wonder, how many people take the time on Monday, the start of their work/school week, to just relax for a bit and listen to some music? I suggest taking a break, tuning in to KSUA 91.5 and not letting the stress get to you just yet. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor
