Collegian Staff April 20, 2018

I have the privilege of being in Chorale—and I absolutely love it! But the rehearsals are challenging. It takes staying in a constant state of engagement and thinking, which means my brain and body must...

Kate Jones April 6, 2018

People give me weird looks when I tell them I’m a literature snob, giving them images of Kate in her happy place, surrounded by dusty old tomes of bygone eras. Growing up on campus, I longed to go to...

Column 3/16/18

Collegian Staff March 16, 2018

Column 3/9/18

Collegian Staff March 9, 2018

Column 10/20/17

Collegian Staff October 20, 2017

Cold. Tired. Wet. These were the first few words that came to mind as I awoke surrounded by the morning dew. While daybreak pushed through the darkness of the  previous night, the blades of grass I had...

Column 10/13/17

Jacob Clipperton October 13, 2017

I started my car, ready to head home after a long day of schoolwork.  Except, the Toyota Prius hybrid didn’t start.  The lights on the dash came on for a few seconds, and then flickered off. Perhaps...

Column 10/6/17
