As a convergence journalism major, I get to take classes to learn very specific skills. Classes like “how to write a column 30 minutes before deadline” or “how to stalk sources that refuse to respond to your emails.”
Actually, we are not taught those things in class. In class, I learn technical things like where to [...]
The topic is simple: Zombies have invaded campus.
The government is containing the issue by killing anything that attempts to run off campus – including students. You have to survive on campus for an indefinite amount of time until it all blows over.
The question is: Which building on campus do you hold up in? Today, we [...]
It’s October and preparations for Sing Song are already taking place. And honestly, who’s surprised?
For as many students who couldn’t care less about Sing Song and are hardly involved, just as many students are completely obsessed. So preparing now for the show in February makes perfect sense not just to Tom Craig, director of [...]
It’s election season.
Early voting polls opened Monday morning for the Nov. 4 midterms that are quickly approaching.
Now, I know what some of you are thinking. Voting is a hassle because you don’t have time; you aren’t in your hometown (unless you’re from Abilene), your vote doesn’t actually matter… etc., etc.
But I’m here to tell you [...]
There are two seasons in every sport. First, each team participates in the regular season. The regular season is often long and drawn out, and teams gain and lose momentum faster than a Welcome Week relationship falls apart. But, unlike most ACU matches, it’s not the squad fastest out of the gate that wins the [...]
Ever heard of the expression “The Internet is forever”?
Chances are you have, and it’s never been truer. The most typical fashion in which our generation hears that phrase usually comes with discussions of future job employers and life after college.
Though that’s true, it’s not the only aspect to take into consideration.
Let’s say the three major [...]
Student’s make the most of fall break.

Despite all the forward-thinking techy trends that are constantly abuzz, we seem to retain an obsession with nostalgic snap shots of the past.
We make #ThrowBackThursday posts on social media so we can display old pictures of ourselves as children being dysfunctional and wearing too much denim. And when we don’t have old pictures, we just [...]
Today I’m going against Jim Mora’s wishes and talking about playoffs. You know, that little mini-tournament teams play in at the end of the year which claims to crown a league champion, but really only determines which team plays the best in cold weather? Yes, playoffs. Oh, you still don’t know what I’m talking about? [...]
The Nobel Peace Prize was recently awarded to two individuals – Malala Yousafzai, a 17-year-old Pakastani who was attacked by the Taliban for advocating the education of Muslim girls, and Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian actively fighting against the exploitation of children.
Yousafzai is the youngest to ever receive a Nobel Prize. Her story is filled with [...]
When I first visited ACU’s campus, I made my parents stop by Monk’s Coffee Shop so I could purchase a “Keep Abilene Boring” T-shirt. But at that time, I had no clue about the depths of Abilene’s boringness, or why in the world anyone would want to keep it that way.
Then, this summer, I had [...]
