A senior’s thoughts upon approaching graduation

This is a graduating college senior calling. We have 16 days till we meet. Yeah, I’m pretty scared too. I’m graduating in May, and I’m kind of looking at this whole next chapter of my life as a new Tinder match. I was just in a 4-year-long relationship with college, and man was it great. Now I have a new relationship to start, and that relationship is te with the real (grown-up) world.

Thanks for the memories and the pizza

It has been an amazing adventure from eating candy, to building forts; from being a columnist to being Editor-in-Chief. The Eagle Eye has been my home away from home, and I wouldn’t change a moment. I’m so proud of the work my staff has accomplished, and I feel honored to have been a part of it. ’m so grateful for the late nights in the office, the conferences, the friends, and the fun.

LHU needs more counselors!

Lock Haven University’s lack of counseling availability is placing students at risk and putting university finances before the mental health and well-being of students. According to the LHU website, there are approximately 4,000 students who attend main campus; however, there is only one counselor to attend to the needs of all of those students.

Springsteen lights up Penn State

Out of the many times I’ve seen Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, none of the shows can even compare to Monday night’s show at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State. This wasn’t my first Bruce show, and I wasn’t even right up against the stage like I was at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, but Monday night was special. Here is a 66 year old man playing 33 songs for three and a half hours, and doing it like he is 20.
