thanx 4 the scrolls

Jul 25th, 2015 | By

There are so many people I’d like to thank. Firstly, I thank godaddy.com for our domain, willamettecollegian.com. Then, I thank Malcolm in the Middle for keeping me company late Tuesday nights and from which I learn to say you’re not the boss of me, Zane Sparling. I unquestionably thank the force behind the 20 weekly

Soundtrack 2 our lives

Apr 29th, 2015 | By

Apr 29th, 2015 | By

By Kate Piluso Once, when I was little, my mom got a fortune at a Chinese restaurant that read: “Sing badly if you must, but sing.” Little me found this absolutely hilarious because, even on the best of days, my mom can make a solid attempt at carrying a tune in a bucket, but otherwise

It’d be nice to say that every undergraduate reads the Collegian out of a sense of institutional loyalty and community engagement. It’d be nice to see more supporters at every convocation, gallery opening, home
