Brace yourselves for the ultimate “First World Problem:” being a commuter student. As a Jacksonville native, I have never lived anywhere besides with my family. I obtained my A.A from Florida State College at Jacksonville and am in my final semester at JU. Jacksonville is an amazing city because it has so many colleges and universities in and around it. While this has been...

Friends, if you haven’t heard, my favorite television series Gilmore Girls is going to have four new 90 minute episodes come out on Netflix. In honor of this news, I’m dedicating this editorial to one of my most appreciative lessons Gilmore Girls has taught me. In the last season, Rory wrote an article about the “trust-fund” party-goers she encountered one night....

I don’t even know where to begin this week. In my last column I called for Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradley to be fired even though there are others that disagreed with me. But after the way the Jaguars lost to the Houston Texans, it is tough for anyone to argue in favor of Bradley. Or is it? Are there some bright spots and signs of improvement on this team? Yes. But...

Not Yo’ Mama’s College Experience

Filed under Archive, Editorial

“Totally Tubular!” I cracked up laughing, trying to envision my 49-year-old mom as a twenty-something. A college student in the mid 80s, she confessed to having Michael Jackson posters on her wall, wearing bright, neon colors (the more the better!), and using the word “like” as much as a Clueless student from Beverly Hills High. She wasn’t much different than many college...

Every year Jaguars fans think that the worst is behind them and that their beloved team has started a new chapter in program history, one that includes progress and wins. After watching the Jaguars week one game against the Carolina Panthers, it appears that those fans will have to continue to wait. The Jaguars put on a pathetic display week one, losing 20-9 in an ugly gam...

During the 2015 summer term, film students who checked their class schedules noticed something alarming. There was no film professor. “I came back from vacation, his [Bandar Albuliwi] name was listed for the course, and then I looked again about three days later and his name was off it,” said Peter Jay Bines, junior film major whose experience mirrors that of many of the fil...

Spring? Is that you I see? The Groundhog thought that because he saw his shadow and we were supposed to have six more weeks of winter. He forgot what state rounds out the southeast region of the US of A! Here in Florida the banal rules of meteorology and the atmosphere mean absolutely nothing to us. Here in the southernmost tip, we have our plans and back up plans and the...
