U.S. marines stationed at Iraq's Al Asad Air Base addressed Lehigh students and faculty this week via videoconference, the first ever to connect university students and soldiers, the Brown and White reports. "[Violence is] like waking up in the morning and hopping in the shower," one soldier said. "It's a part of life we're trying to correct." Another compared the stress of college with the stress of war. " 'Oh, my God. I've got a paper due in a couple days.' So what? Nobody is shooting at you," he said.
