A July 6 article about admissions to the Class of 2009 incorrectly stated the percentages of male and female students in the Classes of 2008 and 2009. The Class of 2008 had a composition of 54 percent male to 46 percent female, not 46 to 54; the Class of 2009 had a composition of 53 percent male to 47 percent female, not 47 to 53.

A July 6 article about The Tech’s editorial system misstated Jonathan T. Wang’s term as Technology Director. He held the office from May 2004–April 2005, not just Spring 2005. The same article incorrectly identified the processors in eMac computers; they are G4 processors, not G5 processors.

Because of an editing error, a front-page caption on Friday, June 10 misidentified the traffic management devices depicted in the picture. They are concrete jersey barriers and plastic barrels, not “concrete barrels.”
