Andrew Paisley, Opinion Editor

November 3, 2019

Well, it is November, and that means we are coming down to about the last month of the semester.

Of cou...

It is good to be opinionated in life

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

November 3, 2019

This semester has been difficult for me when it comes to maintaining new friendships. Recently I have had time to reflect on the friendships and why they ended. I think it is because I am too opinionated for them and they do not respect my opinions because they differ from theirs. Like I have said in ...

October 31, 2019

Halloween was the other day, Thanksgiving is this month and Christmas is next month.  Obviously, everyone knows that, or do they? On social media, I have seen multiple articles and people talk about how Thanksgiving is being skipped over because of the excitement of Christmas. I have also seen people...

This is how adults celebrate Halloween

Megan Keane, Columnist

October 30, 2019

If you’re anything like my family and me, Halloween is a big deal. In my household, we love horror movies, scary decorations and freaking each other out. When my siblings and I were younger, our parents would throw a big Halloween bash for our family. We used to bob for apples, and have cute, but sca...

Embrace death; it’s a part of life

Zoë Donovan, Staff Reporter

October 30, 2019

As young vibrant college students, we don’t usually think about death on a regular basis as anything more than an abstract concept. For the most part we aren’t writing wills, choosing caskets or thinking about what we want to be dressed in at our wake. We as a society don’t like to contemplate our own ...

October 29, 2019

I'm sure everyone can agree college is stressful. Some of us just finished up with midterm exams, and finals are quickly approaching.

Be grateful that you have food

Dillan Schorfheide, Sports Editor

October 28, 2019

So often, people take the food available to them for granted. I am guilty of this too. All I have to do is drive to the store and pick out what things I want to eat and put a little plastic card into a computerized checkout machine, and then I get to eat. But many people cannot drive to the store to ge...

Push yourself at the gym, but not too hard

Karena Ozier, Columnist

October 28, 2019

There are lots of different types of people in this world. If I were to just focus on the types of people that I see at the gym on a regular basis, I would be able to break down the vast majority of people into one category: people who push themselves.  The people who fill the gym atmosphere have ...

Column: Be respectful of non-religious beliefs

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

October 27, 2019

Religion. It is a hot topic and has been for centuries. I am someone who has struggled with the grasp of religion and the faith that people have in God. To say I understand the Bible is a massive understatement. I have tried to go to different types of churches; however, I still come out feeling the...

Column: 1 year sober: Life changes, progress

Andrew Paisley, Opinion Editor

October 27, 2019

I can’t believe it’s been one whole year, 12 months, 52 weeks and 365 days since I’ve had a drink, let alone a single drop of alcohol. On October 28, 2018, I surrendered to my loved ones and to God my Higher Power. I was unmanageable. My whole life at that very point was astray and I couldn...
