The Islamic State isn’t our problem

Mar 4th, 2015 | By

By Nate Balk The Islamic State group. An out of control organization? Yes. The United States’ problem? No. Like a majority of the world’s population, I’m terrified by the beheadings featured on the news almost daily, the inhumane treatment of those captured and the resentment IS espouses toward those who disagree with their ideology. However,

Mar 4th, 2015 | By

By Zack Boyden I’ve developed a fondness for art over my college career. I’m quite the novice in terms of actual analysis, but I’ve begun to identify what constitutes my favorite kinds of art.

Mar 4th, 2015 | By

By Kate Piluso I’ve been feeling this new intrinsic connection to Tom Hardy’s portrayal of the villain Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises.” If you have no idea who Bane is, go find an empty coffee mug, hold it up to your face and say: “Now’s not the time for fear; that comes later!” or

Blood—not always thicker than water

Mar 4th, 2015 | By

By Marjorie Meeks I’ve been very lucky in my life. I was a happy kid. I grew up with two parents who supported my decisions and dreams, regardless of what they were. They cared for me immensely and never asked for anything back. I never felt as if the love of my parents somehow had
