Week three is the point where NFL teams should be separating themselves into classes. The elite usually go to 3-0, the middle of the road teams will have at least one win, and the bottom feeders end up winless. Is this year any different?

Then there is the unmistakable Artis Gilmore, Hall-of-Fame basketball player who led JU to a national title game, who now works for the university. But...

As big of a sports fan as I am, and for as long as I’ve known they’ve been doing it, I still find it so odd to see all of the football players donning their pink attire while the referees scamper around blowing their pink whistles and throwing their pink flags. Yes, the month of October and the pink regalia signify a cause that is very near and dear to my heart, breast...

Isaiah, Do you remember when we pretended we were fairies? You sort of went along with it because I was the older sister and you were just a little kid and embarrassment-proof. And I, who probably had sleep deprivation at this point with all my pre algebra homework, said, “you’ll be Tinkerbell and I’ll be Tinker...butt.” And you cracked up laughing because you were...

Filed under Archive, Editorial

Elections come and go and they often do more than just leave us with a president or a senator; more times than not they leave some of us with a bitter taste in our mouths. Why, you ask? Because we see political parties rear their ugly heads, showing us their true colors, and no, they are not red, white and blue. The true colors of political parties have gotten me thinking....

I’ve seen it many times. Well, about three fall semesters worth. New couples are normally easy to spot. They’re all giddy and all over each other. They’re happiness is pleasantly shown through their constant genuine smiles while in the presence of their new significant other. Freshmen can be apparent to the upperclassmen and faculty.
