Fall semester brings new general education requirements
By Kate Hibbard
Most LHU students will be looking at revamped general education requirements next fall.
“The world is changing rapidly. The state of knowledge is changing rapidly,” said Donna Wilson, Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs. “And the skills and knowledge students need to succeed in the 21st century are changing.”
The curriculum’s revisions include a new category called “Global Awareness and Citizenship” and, while two sciences will still be required, only one must be a lab science.

The first episode of the second season of “Bates Motel” premiered Monday, March 3, and it will make your jaw drop. “Bates Motel” is a horror/drama that is a prequel to the Hitchcock film “Psycho”, telling the story of Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga).

Anyone who has been on Instagram recently can see that selfies have become an extremely popular trend. The word ‘selfie’ is now in the Oxford Dictionary and was the word of the year in 2013.
In case you don’t know, a selfie is a self-portrait that someone takes by themselves to post on a social media. So why is this recent trend so popular?
This week in the March Madness Preview we’re going over the Texas Longhorns, Kentucky Wildcats, and the Iowa State Cyclones, all teams that I believe could make the NCAA tournament. Analysis of Texas and Iowa State are courtesy of Kyle Harstead, senior at LHU.

I recently ran into a friend last week who was on her way to Thomas Field House to see a basketball game.
“Oh, are you going to the girls’ game?” I asked. It was no later than 5 p.m. so the game was just getting underway.
“Yeah, but only because I’m trying to get good seats for the boys game,” she replied.
While I sit here and write this, my mind is currently sifting through the hundreds of games that I have played throughout my athletic career, trying to pinpoint one game that was actually supported by someone other than parents. It’s like that conversation finally put things into perspective for me because I can’t seem to think of one game, nor do I remember seeing anyone else on the bleachers.
