Andrew Paisley, Columnist

April 10, 2019

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...

The Editorial board has heard a lot of griping about the upcoming spring concert, and most of it is valid and warranted. Many of our peers, ourselves included, have complained about not knowing the band, not caring about the genre of music, not wanting to spend an evening cooped up in McAfee and of...

Got (the right way to drink) milk?

Natalee Reynolds, Columnist

April 9, 2019

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

Karena Ozier, Columnist

April 8, 2019

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...

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

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.
