Evaluating sleeping habits can improve quality of life

Take it from the editors, sleep is important. If you don’t want to take it from us, there are literally hundreds of articles and research studies on the subject. Though their recommendations usually differ, they all proclaim the same message: Sleep. Is.  Absolutely. Necessary. College students are well known as a lucrative market for products

Student Voice: Body Image vs. God’s Image

When you hear the word “Barbie,” what comes to mind? If you’re like most of us, you probably imagine a tall, skinny-as-a-rail, flawlessly-skinned, blonde girl wearing heels. When Mattel created Barbie in 1959, they created the perfect girl—or at least they thought so. Over the years, Barbie has evolved to include a variety of hair


It’s rare to walk through Wal-Mart or watch a video online without hearing profanity. People frequently use curse and swear words. Not just euphemisms, but words most would consider vulgar. As Christians, we are commanded to control our tongue and glorify God in our speech. “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but

Student Voice: The Super Bowl as a non-fan

The Super Bowl is fast approaching and will be broadcasted on Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. The reaction of most people in America is excited anticipation for the event.

It was titled “My Pet Peeves: A Journal for Nitpicking the Endlessly Irritating Panoply of Infractions That I and Only I Possess the Authority to Declare and Vilify but That Nonetheless Others Should Just Know Better Than

Student Voice: Don’t let politics make you panic

In his final State of the Union, President Barak Obama spoke head on to the fear mongering that has become so characteristic of politics in America. “America has been through big changes – wars and depression, the influx of immigrants, workers fighting for a fair deal, and movements to expand civil rights,” Obama said. “Each


My Christmas break didn’t go as I planned. Specifically, the first day especially didn’t go as planned. My sister and I woke up at 6 a.m. on the morning after the last exams so we could get an early start on our 14-hour drive back to Buffalo, New York. The weather was fine for most

Two views of social media: Information vs. communication

Social media is a great place for the spreading of information, and in today’s age of information, we quite literally can’t get enough. How many of us checked for snow day updates or liked rainbow pictures on Facebook or Instagram? Who hasn’t texted Mom what’s for dinner? Some of the people who understand the effect

Be SMART: Making & Keeping New Year’s Resolutions

Once the over-indulgence of the holidays comes to an end and the calendar opens to a fresh year, it’s time for the age-old tradition of New Year’s resolutions.
