football, but rugby.
Typical bumper stickers read, "There Are No Winners in Rugby,

Since Americans typically prefer contact sports to most any other
type, it should only be a matter of time before Rugby should be the

Tests and papers disappear
Why does it take so long to get a paper or test back at UNF?
Most students hand their papers in promptly and then spend two
three or four weeks of severe mental strain before they are graded and
returned. Some professors never return papers or tests.
This is not really fair to the student. He has put in a great deal of
time and effort in preparing a paper or project, writing an essay or
studying for a test.
Students want to know how they are doing in class. If papers were
given back promptly, a student who is not doing well, would have a
chance to talk to the instructor and find out what he needs to do to
improve his work.
The comments many profs write in the margins of the papers and
tests are usually very helpful to students. Isn't the student entitled to
know what he did wrong on one paper or test at least before the second I i.
Some UNF instructors must not think so. A few come to class and tell
the students they have done poorly on a test but fail to return their tests
or tell them what they did wrong much less how they can improve on
the, next exam.
Other professors just complain that they are too busy to grade long f 4
Of course there are many kinds of tests. A term paper or long essay" ,
test takes much more time to grade than a true-false test or an exam
with in answer key.
Most professors are also involved in extracurricular activities at the v c
