Fall is here with some brand new premieres

A new fall semester with new classes, new professors and new friends, but let’s be honest the best part of the fall semester is new TV shows premiering. The chance to waste our lives in front of the glimmering goodness of television screens instead of being prudent student and studying is an unavoidable fate for some us (one that includes copious amount of late night caffeine and regret). Besides who needs human contact when you got fictional characters?

Rape culture unleashed

These days I am perpetually disappointed in Lock Haven University. This sorry excuse for an institution has failed me yet again. On top of all of the budget cuts, the tuition increase, the lack of student involvement in major changes that directly affects us, not to mention our wallets, this school has gone above and beyond to let down their students.

The ‘Red Zone’: Not just a football term

It’s that time of year again – sexual assault season. Otherwise known as the Red Zone, the period between the start of a college year up until Thanksgiving break tends to have the highest rates of sexual assault on college campuses, according to studies by the Journal of American College Health, the Department of Justice and others.


Why can’t we be friends?

Why can’t we be friends?

Did you ever listen to your parents talking about their glory days? I’m sure you’ve heard about some of the ridiculous stunts they pulled off or some crazy fun event that they were involved in. One thing most of the stories probably have in common is that a large number of the same people appear in them over and over again. These stories make it sound like a time where everybody knew everyone.
