A few days ago, my wellness and fitness instructor popped in a movie. Cheesy music, reminiscent of the 80s, filled the small room inside the PAC, bringing me back to junior high school. Read More »...

What the F#©K? Dumb things

While the apparent trend of this column is to select one particular thing that is a manifestation of “dumb ass-ery,” I would like to instead point out the many such things that surround us and take some of the faith you have in humanity away. Besides, your faith is not necessary for humanity. We will c...

Those who have spent any time on campus in the past year and half have undoubtedly been taken aback by the addition of a 97-foot, looming conical structure to its center. The newest addition to USI’s campus is being affectionately referred to as the cone. While the practical utility of this pyramidal...

Relationships are tricky. I would even call them stupid. Yet, everyone is on this constant journey to find the perfect partner. People have this idea of the perfect partner that will drop whatever he or she is doing to come over and comfort you. He or she will blow off friends to watch a movie with his...

This past weekend I watched the film "No Strings Attached" which got me thinking a lot about the idea of friends with benefits. Upon starting this article, I knew roughly why I thought friends with benefits was an unwise concept that inevitably would end in catastrophe, but I had no real foundation to base t...

Let me start off by saying I don’t hate leggings/jeggings, actually I find them to be the short shorts of winter. Girls seem to be wearing them everywhere from school to church and even funerals. Ok, I am not sure they are worn at the last two places but they are worn at school and many other places....

Let’s talk some sex. As part of Know Your Status Week, Christine Tolis, assistant program director of student wellness, spoke at a seminar entitled Let’s Talk About Sex.

Back to school

Back to school means back to tests, papers, treading to class through the snow, ice and sludge (at least mailmen get paid and get to play with dogs) and your weird professor who still swears that the government has been watching him since the 60's.
