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....

The preseason is over, rosters have been trimmed to the league mandated 53 players and fans are ready for the 2013 NFL season. All the while, non-fans are dreading the countless hours of coverage they will have to endure and bracing for water cooler conversations that are as confusing as the Pythagorean Theorem. If you fall into the fan category, enjoy this time of year; all...

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. They commonly look lost, young and...

Love Column- Closure

One of the biggest pieces of healing a broken heart is experiencing closure. However, sometimes closure doesn’t come immediately after a break up. This I know from very recent experience. This past weekend was my birthday, my first one being single in the past three years. It was such an incredible celebration for me. I spent time with the most important people in my life...

The beginning is always the most magical. You’re learning about each other, flirting, going out on the best romantic dates possible and constantly having a weird smile on your face with butterflies in your stomach. But we all know that after several months that spark the excitement in a relationship can start to plateau. Your relationship begins to become a routine and...

It’s not unfamiliar for athletes to decline and seem to fall off the face of the earth later in their careers. They get older, their play declines and they become expendable. Then there are others who make a bonehead decision and are pushed away and looked at as a shell of their former self. I can’t think of anything more painful as an avid sports enthusiast than seei...

The month of April brings with it many things. It brings the rain, blooming flowers and signals the approaching conclusion of the school year. Most importantly, the arrival of April means that baseball is back. Our national pastime has returned. In late February, early-March, all 30 teams report to their Arizona or Florida spring training homes. Within the month of spring...

A la Mode: A Glance at the Fashion Industry

I’ve always been fashion obsessed, but in reality I never knew much about it. As everyone who is avid about something, I learned to do my research. I read fashion magazines, I watched fashion shows and I always tried to be the first one to know about the new trends of the season. Although I am “book smart” when it comes to fashion, I had no experience, and that’s a fact. The closest I had been to fashion is when I'd have my sh...

An alternative title for this editorial could be “Why I’m sitting locked in my office while I hope no one finds me.” As a fraternity man, I get involved with a lot of community service and philanthropy events. Sometimes voluntary and occasionally, extraordinarily involuntarily. My particular fraternity’s biggest event by far is Derby Days. There is a lot that goes into...

Aries Have you been working yourself too hard lately? Dedication is a good thing but maybe you can ease up on your work load and have a little fun. You deserve it, after all. Cancer Your positive attitude is a great personality trait, but sometimes your sunny outlook on life can be annoying to those around you.
