Summertime makes great occasion for travel

Alyssa Cravens, Staff Reporter

July 8, 2019

I have fond memories of my family piling into the minivan and taking cross country road trips during summer vacation. Between the luggage, blankets, gear and cooler of food, we were packed in like sardines. With the passing of time, obviously comes change and innovation. Not a lot of families...

Road trips can still be affordable

I absolutely love taking road trips. Ever since I was little, I’ve always gone on road trips with my grandparents, and I fell in love with traveling that way. You get to see so much more country while driving. The best road trip I’ve ever been on was with my boyfriend last summer. We drove...

Spring break is getting closer, and with it are travel plans.

I am going to take this time, or these 500 words or so, to tell you all that I am not mad … I am just disappointed. I am disappointed by the amount of Eastern students who are already scurrying back home for Labor Day Weekend. For most of us, it was just two weeks ago we moved back to the good ‘ol Chuck. Thoug...

January 8, 2018

There have been times, I must admit, where I have taken advantage of the luxury that comes with being born American.  Of course, that luxury could arguably be many things; however, the luxury I’m referring to is the freedom to not learn and not have to remember a foreign language. For personal...
