  • Before I Graduate

    Brittany Buckner '18

    If you are anything like myself, you love to plan for the future and make lists.  I am always thinking about plans, and what I want with my future.  At the end last semester, I found myself sitting in the basement of the PCCM (Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media) with a friend doing homework around midnight.  We were cramming it all in at...

  • Castle City Tattoo

    Brittany Buckner '18

    It was a warm, sunny day when I walked into the local tattoo shop, Castle City Tattoo.  I was welcomed by the two owners, their pug, Stella, and the customers .  My first impressions when I walked in were that this was not only the opposite of what I imagined a tattoo shop to look like, but also that this was not necessarily what I would categorize...

    The school year is almost over. The sun is shining brighter, the air a little warmer, Roy O. West is a little busier. But hey, it’s May. in a few short days, the cars will be driving off, the suitcases packed up, and the seniors will be walking across the stage with their degrees in hand. What the heck. In all my years as a student, I have... Read more.

  • One Year Down

    Kaitlyn Groce '18

    It is crazy to think that my first year of college is coming to an end. I remember being so excited and so nervous when I walked onto campus ready to start the semester. It sounds like a cliché, but freshman year really affects a person. I have learned so much about myself by simply being in college. I have experienced things and seen things that I would never have seen if it weren’t for attending...

  • You Live All the Way Over There?

    Allison Hunt '16

    Dorms are great. I’m a big believer in living with other people to figure out how to live with yourself. That sounds like a conundrum, but living with so many other people will show you so much about what’s best for you personally while living on your own. You’ll figure out where and when you study best, whether you like to shower in the mornings or at night, and that no messy room could be any worse...

  • College Birthdays

    Kaitlyn Groce '18

    In high school, my birthday was always right before school ended. Last year, in high school my birthday fell on what they called “Senior Celebration” which was like the senior awards. I was presenting an award and when my partner and I were about to being our speech, the auditorium began singing Happy Birthday to me, which was an amazing surprise. This year my birthday, May 16th, falls on a Saturday...

    Laura Ledesma '17

    The freshman 15, or otherwise known as the 15 pounds every freshman gains, is no joke. You may think “oh no, that’ll never happen to me”…wrong. It happens to everyone. Whether it’s 15 pounds, or less…or more, almost every freshman gains at least a couple of pounds their freshman year of college.  With all the junk food available on campus, it’s hard not to gain weight. However, here are 4 ways you...
