Do your research on all candidates

Dillan Schorfheide, Sports Editor

September 16, 2019

The most recent Democratic debates brought up the central issue with American politics: Ambiguity. Ambiguity is nothing new to political candidates and was the main form of answering questions last week. As many of you may have noticed, or for those of you wondering what this ambiguity is, there is a syste...

Bieber said it best: ‘never say never’

Karena Ozier, Columnist

September 16, 2019

Ever since I was little, I started listing off all of the things I told myself that I would never do. I realize now that maybe Justin Bieber was right. Never say never. One of the many things that I never thought I would do was join a sorority. I watched the movies and I thought that I learned my le...

Stop rebooting movies; leave them be

September 12, 2019

I was scrolling through Facebook this week and I came across an article about Disney making a live action Fox and the Hound movie.

This week saw a lot of news in the NFL, whether it was the beginning of the season or Antonio Brown. A piece of sports news that was not covered almost at all was in the MLB.

Jessica Stewart, Columnist

September 10, 2019

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved dance. When I was little, I started taking dance classes at a little studio in my hometown. It was a lot of fun, and it helped me realize just how much I enjoyed dance. When I got to high school, I tried out for our dance team and was so surprised when I made the...

Opinion: An apology on behalf of people like me

Adam Tumino, Reporter

September 10, 2019

I usually want to keep my columns light and humorous, but occasionally I feel the need to get more serious. This is one of those occasions. In one of my classes recently, we watched portions of a documentary on the AIDS outbreak across the world, mainly in the 1980s and 90s. After watching this documentary,...

Natural beauty is the best kind of beauty

Kate Rehwinkel

September 8, 2019

I have recently been told by a guy friend of mine that I could get a boyfriend if I just wore makeup. Anyone who knows me knows that I think makeup should only be used for special occasions, or a night out on the town. I don’t wear makeup for three reasons. First, foundation covers up my freckles a...

Seek counseling for sexual trauma

Andrew Paisley

The age of 17 was a hard one for me. I had just come out publicly with my sexuality the year prior, I was dealing with distant family members who shamed me for being gay, I was in a phase where I was extremely promiscuous and ... I suffered sexual assault. It is so crazy to me how our brains can protec...

Go gold for childhood cancer awareness Month

Katelyn Eddington, Columnist

September 5, 2019

September is a hard month in general, but when you can relate to what the month represents, it is harder. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I can relate to it because one of my favorite humans is going through this. That human is my five-year-old cousin, Logan Christensen. You see, ...

Put your opinions on NFL players away

Blake Faith, Sports Reporter

September 5, 2019

The NFL has been full of news lately. Whether that is Antonio Brown being fined $54,000, Jared Goff singling a $134 million four year contract extension or Ezekiel Elliot’s $90 million 6 year contract, there’s plenty to talk about. Whether you think the fines and contracts are worth it or inexcusable, I...

Opinion: There are pros, cons to living off campus

Jessica Stewart, Reporter

September 3, 2019

This semester, my boyfriend and I have a house off campus, and it’s a much different experience than living in a dorm. I used to live in Thomas Hall, and I loved it. I’ve always suggested living on campus to new students, and I would still encourage underclassmen to live on campus since it provides...

Opinion: Stop using memes for rule enforcement

Adam Tumino, Reporter

September 3, 2019

Memes serve a valuable purpose in our society. Well, maybe not a valuable purpose, but they certainly do have a purpose. That purpose is to entertain. Unfortunately, that is about all they are good for.  In the residence hall where I live, memes are failing miserably at trying to fulfill another pur...
