What everyone says is true. A handshake really does make a big difference in communication.

Me being an avid animal lover and owner, it disgusts me when I see stories online of animals being abused or neglected. USA Today published a story about a man in North Carolina who had charges dropped against him for abandoning his pet fish. He had three counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty charges ...

If you’re anything like me and my suitemates, you’re stretching toward the summer the way a sunflower grows toward the sun. The end of the semester is so close, I can barely concentrate on what all has to be completed in these final weeks because I’m so centered on being done. I enjoy all my classes,...

Coping with addiction on a daily basis

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Throughout my recovery, I have learned so much about how to handle it, and I know there is so much more I still have left to learn. Each day, we as addicts battle this disease of addiction, and sometimes we have to take it one day at a time. Other times, we may have to take it one hour at a time. There...

Saturday I participated in Panther Service Day, which is an annual event put on by the Civic Engagement and Volunteerism Office here on campus.

Got (the right way to drink) milk?

Natalee Reynolds, Columnist

April 9, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

The other evening, I was having a conversation with some of my friends regarding milk. I used to think that there was only one proper way to drink milk: taking it out from the fridge and drinking it. After this absurd conversation, my philosophy proved right to me. It has come to my attention...

Wearing makeup should not be standard

Filed under Columns, Opinions

When I was in elementary school, I remember coming home and playing dress-up with my sister. We would play with fake makeup and act like we were adults. As I got older, the fake makeup became real makeup that we would lather on our faces. Eventually my friends began to wear makeup to school. I stopped...

I love Disney World—honestly though, who doesn’t? But while it may be the happiest place on Earth, it’s not all magic and rainbows. Following up on last Tuesday’s Part One, here’s the thrilling conclusion to my essay entitled “Waiting in Line at Disney World: A Grieving Process.” Bargaining Our Father...

Collegiate sport needs diversity

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

April 7, 2019


Filed under Columns

Collegiate athletics have come a long way since their birth, but that does not mean everything is as it should be. Women have made advances in collegiate athletics, as far as being more included with opportunities and scholarships. Yet, at the same time, women are still facing gaps in opportunities in regard to colle...

You will find love; be patient

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

April 7, 2019


Filed under Columns

In the last month, I have met someone. Now, I have not always had the best experiences when it comes to relationships, so of course I am very weary of relationships in general. This person came out of the blue, and he has so far proved himself to be the person I have always dreamed of meeting. He ...

As of the time of me writing this article, I quit smoking cigarettes close to a month ago, and I have never felt better. However, I had serious issues with the physical and mental withdrawals from the many years of addiction, and I made the switch to electronic-cigarettes. I have been smoking approxim...

We must stop glorifying mass murder

Logan Raschke, News Editor

April 4, 2019


Filed under Columns

A few days ago, my roommate said something that really took me by surprise. She doesn’t really watch documentaries that often, so I, being a huge documentary fan, was listing off several films of recommendation. I could tell she wasn’t that interested, but her demeanor changed when I mentioned a...
