Let’s Talk: Summer love

May 15, 2019 by Katy Weicker, staff writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

Like many students, I’m finding my sea legs again after the insanity that was end-of-the-semester mayhem. Finals are done, grades are in, and I’m back in the swing of working full time and having my evenings free from homework—also known as having time to write things that I’m not getting graded on! In addition to […]

First Things First: Picture-perfect notes

Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

Have you ever heard of the studyblr or studygram community? It’s a wretched, cursed place that I willingly visit, and you might too. There’s something so clean and perfect about it that makes me so conflicted I decided to write a column—no, a warning—on what it is and why I love it. Simply, it is […]

Communication Error: Parrot juice

Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

I thought that I saw a parrot; a flock of parrots flying freely here and there—parrots everywhere. Although I am not entirely sure if they were parrots or not. As I stared intensely out of my window I witnessed a colourful figure ascending from one corner of my eye to the other; in a blink […]

Health with Tess: From financial hell to financial health

May 15, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under May 15, 2019, Columns

You know what people never talk about? Financial health. Once upon a time, only a couple of years ago, I had just under $5 and some laundry-card credit to my name. I hadn’t even spent money on fun—it was purely the cost of responsibilities. Not my best moment, but it did inspire (scare?) me into […]

The Chopping Block Chronicles: The socially acceptable drug

April 3, 2019 by Justin Bennett, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

First off, I just want to point out that I am an avid coffee drinker (I write this as I take a sip of my quad espresso), and that the purpose of this article is solely to question our philosophies around substances in general. I was once posed a question in one of my health […]

Health with Tess: Exam season? Sleep season!

April 3, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

Happy exam season! Yeah, I’m rolling my eyes and glaring at me too. We’ve got exams, we’ve got essays, and we’ve got presentations. It’s not really the time of semester that we celebrate; usually, we celebrate surviving it. One thing that will help you get through the upcoming chaos is sleep. Yep, that thing we […]

First Things First: How to procrastinate smart

April 3, 2019 by Tiegan Suddaby, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

I have a style of procrastination that I like to call “active procrastination.” Instead of doing the things you love to do to put off working, you clean. Or cook, or do extra work for another class, or finish a quiz a week early. Sometimes I plan out my life for the next two years […]

Communication Error: The Midas touch

April 3, 2019 by Nate Downe, contributing writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

Through heaven and hell, success and sin, you lay adrift as if the day is done, although there is no rest for the wicked, and surely you are no saint. “Escaping” is really just a different term for “staying.” For when is the last time you truly escaped your problems—or have they not simply stuck […]

Let’s Talk: She’ll have a sleeve

April 3, 2019 by Katy Weicker, staff writer  
Filed under April 3, 2019, Columns

Allow me to set the scene: my boyfriend and I are out for dinner with my family at a low-key sit-down place that has us seated in the kid-friendly corner thanks to my teeny-tiny nephew. As we’re finishing up our meals, a man and a woman walk in with four young kids (three boys and […]

Health with Tess: Catch infections early, not late

March 20, 2019 by Tess Syrowik, contributing writer  
Filed under Columns, March 20, 2019

I was recently listening to a podcast on how people will take great measures to avoid bad news. One of the examples given was that 20 percent of college students in a study paid $10 to not be told whether or not they had herpes, despite having all of the testing already complete. Shocking, right? […]
