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

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

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

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...

Does anybody even read anymore?

This past Tuesday was not only my 22nd birthday; it was the English Studies Conference on the third floor of Coleman Hall. It showcases the hard work the students, faculty and alumni are doing in the English department. Sounds pretty nerdy, but it was actually awesome—especially because I got to participate...

Autism is more than just a label

Adapt, accept, advocate. This is one of the many mantras repeated throughout April in honor of Autism Awareness Month. This is the lifestyle for one in 59 children and their families. This is something that needs to be recognized year-round, every day. Autism is not the piano prodigy or doctor...

Spring comes with multiple problems

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

April 2, 2019


Filed under Columns

Spring has sprung, and I for one am not happy. I would prefer fall or winter weather over spring and summer. I dread summer the most, but spring is a close second. I do like some days in spring that are the epitome of beautiful weather. For example, I prefer a partly sunny day in the 50s or 60s with...

Carry out your responsibilities on time

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

April 2, 2019


Filed under Columns

One thing that truly bothers me is when people do not get things done in time. Of course, we all have those times where something pops up or there is an emergency. Those are understandable. When someone does not fulfill their commitments a number of times in a row, this poses a problem. You...

‘On My Block’ season 2 better than season 1

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

April 1, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

The following review contains spoilers for “On My Block” seasons one and two. “On My Block” yet again impresses me as reviewer. Season two took what made season one so memorable and built upon it tremendously. Season two dropped this past Friday on Netflix, and I spent most of the weekend binge ...

Smokers need to respect non-smokers

Karena Ozier, Columnist

April 1, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

When I go to the store or to a restaurant with my friends and family, I do not want to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke before I enter the building. I can understand that it is not the easiest thing to stop smoking, but there should be an understanding between the people who smoke and the people...
