I have never played the Detective Pikachu video game, and I do not really have a desire to. I am sure it is fun and unique, but I just have no interest in playing it.

Filed under Columns, Opinions

As a history major, I appreciate the pieces of history that are still preserved in the modern day. It is truly fascinating looking at sources from past eras and imaging all the things that happened with this certain document, image, statue and so on.

Filed under Columns, Opinions

It’s the perfect, treasured game for young and old alike. It’s timeless—and time consuming. It’s good for the mind. It can be used as an exercise in concentration. What is it, you may be asking.

There are benefits to waking up early

Natalee Reynolds, Columnist

December 4, 2018


Filed under Columns

I have recently started waking up at six in the morning— every morning. I know, some of you may be absolutely mind-blown at the fact that someone (particularly a college student) actively wakes up at six a.m. every morning by choice. But my simple reason is, I enjoy it.
