Religion should not mix into politics

For those of you who read my columns, the left-leaning political musings of a college student, I’ll have to ask you to skip this week’s column. Because this week, I want to write on a topic that is often on my mind; political evangelism. And I’m specifically writing this for American Christians. This...

Attending graduation isn’t a requirement

Kennedy Nolen, Columnist

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Graduation day is approaching, and I cannot be more excited to finally finish college. It would have been nice to finish in December as planned, but I am dealing with it. I already have the times of my finals written out in my planner; yes, I am that eager. My last day is Monday, April 30, and I made...

Learn through experience; do not expect life to be easy

Abbey Whittington, Columnist

Part of growing up is learning how to bite your tongue, even if it means drawing blood. I am as hot headed as they come; when people are disrespectful I want to push them into the hole they have dug for themselves, but sometimes you just have to walk away from the matter to collect your steamrolled...

Don’t be ashamed to love

Andrew Paisley, Campus Reporter

March 5, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

One of the topics I write about the most are relationships. I think it is because I have had a lot of experience with relationships and I know there are so many people out there who need advice or have been in the same situations that I have. Some time ago, I was involved with someone who was much,...

Be sparing with second chances

Liz Stephens, Columnist

March 4, 2018

By Liz Stephens Columnist   I used to always think everybody who has wronged me deserved a second chance to be a better person. I’ve realized that most people don’t have intentions on becoming and developing themselves into better people, so why give them a second chance to act the...

Successful things to add to Sunday Lists

Carole Hodorowicz, Opinions Editor

March 4, 2018


Filed under Columns

Sunday, the designated lazy day, is a staple in human culture. It is dedicated to catching up on television rather than getting a head start on the week’s anticipated responsibilities. If you’re like me, how you start the week sets the tone for the rest of the days following will go. As...

Try thinking towards your future

I will be the first person to admit that I cannot wait until spring break gets here. Some students have fun beach vacations, but I on the other hand will be going to my safe haven: the South.  This week I got Starbucks with a friend who I grew up with. Conlon just so happened to be one of the selec...

  My whole life, I have dreamt of being a teacher. Even before my adolescent age, I have known that I want to change lives and become a teacher.   The summer after I graduated high school, I started to have cold feet about going to college and about my career choice. I started to...

OPINION: High school athletes can live on through college intramurals

Dillan Schorfheide, Sports Reporter

Filed under Columns, Opinions

After your senior night in whatever sport you played in high school, you may have thought your sports career was over. When you started looking at universities to attend and finally found the one, you may have thought, “That’s great and all, but I still want to play sports because it’s always...

Reminiscing dorm days

Shelby Niehaus, Columnist

February 28, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

Sometimes I find myself missing my dorm. Those of you who live in dorms now: save the laughter. I promise, you will miss it too. The degree will be different and the frequency will also vary, but you will miss your dorm someday. When I come to campus for student teaching seminars, I always find...

Guns, the NRA, and mental health: What do we do?

Colin Roberts, Copy Editor

February 27, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I am not really in the mood to talk about school shootings. We do this every couple of months. I know your lines, you know mine. I guess this time around it was a little more absurd. We are all amping up the rhetoric. Both sides are digging in, adamant that the other bears the blood of the victims. For...
