Debt rankings seem unreasonable

By Optimist Editorial Board
Posted on December 5, 2014 | Filed under Editorials, Opinion | Comments Off

This editorial is really short because we don’t have a lot of room (see Brittany’s column to the side). But it’s also really short because it’s more of a statement. Not so much a stance or an opinion.
While we would love to chime in with the classic complaint of how expensive school is, we would [...]

Graduating senior says names matter

Often when people talk about what makes ACU such a special place, they talk about the people they encounter. I am grateful for my education from ACU, but the greatest part of my ACU experience has been the lives that have become a part of my story.

In preparing for the end of the semester and all that entails, I thought a blessing would only be fitting.
Study in peace.
Blessed are those without Netflix subscriptions, for they will have time to inherit the earth.
Blessed are the remaining Chapel goers, for they will see God.
Let’s be honest, at this point in the semester, you [...]

Nine days are all I’ve got left.
Nine days left in a little town called Abilene at a campus I have come to call home. Nine more days of the Bean. Only nine short days ’til I hand in the key (which I think I have lost) to the last dorm room I’ll ever live in.
Cue [...]

The media can’t handle a messy Ferguson

By Optimist Editorial Board
Posted on December 2, 2014 | Filed under Editorials | Comments Off

The media is in a tough spot. Well, we have put ourselves in a tough spot. And by “we,” I mean every journalist or news outlet that has attempted to cover or editorialize the events happening in Ferguson.
If you address the race factor, then you are criticized for assuming unknown facts of the case or [...]

In case you missed it, ACU chose Houston native and Notre Dame product Lee De León as the new athletic director. For me personally, it was a bit of a shock, but a happy one for sure.
In the past, whether it be an administrative role or a coaching position, ACU has gained the reputation of [...]

I’m discovering where the maker meets the lab

This semester has been full of new experiences for me.
Even as a sophomore, there are still so many things to experience here on our campus. There is one experience in particular that I have grown fond of – the Maker Lab.
The Maker Lab piqued my curiosity when my professor recommended me to use their laser [...]

What would you do for a Chapel credit?

By Optimist Editorial Board
Posted on November 18, 2014 | Filed under Editorials | Comments Off

It’s crunch time. That /55 on your myACU homepage glows at you with dismay. Collecting those Chapel credits is the last thing you want to worry about right now, but the threat of Chapel probation means you have to.
It seems like there could be some alternative. Is there not something else you could do in [...]
