Life is all about change. The familiar is comfortable though, like a warm blanket keeping the cold uncertainty of life at bay. Yet change is one of humanity’s most important characteristics. The ability to reinvent one’s self, the opportunity to strike out and do something completely new is the most formative force in life. Change, [...]
Well gang, it’s that time of the semester again- when sleep is a distant memory, caffeine is being administered via IV drips at a Starbuck’s near you and trying to get an open computer in the library is like trying to beat all of the other Districts into the Cornucopia. That’s right, everyone. It’s time [...]
“Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
Such is the declaration when visiting one of ACU’s fellow “Christian” universities. For ACU students, so foreign is the concept of mixed-gender bunking dormitories and Sundays spent sans church. In the opposing corner, so strange is the thought of a school with rulings against shorts and mandatory meal prayers. Standing [...]
Students pay a lot of money to attend ACU. They should have the right to skip class as much as they want.
After a late night of homework, watching movies, playing Xbox or staying out with friends, the last thing anyone wants to do is wake up for an early class.
At the beginning of the semester [...]
In 1948, a political disagreement in Korea caused a split between North and South. When the communist regime of the North attempted to conquer the right-wing South, the United Nations, led by the US, stepped in to stop the spread of communism.
With hostility, North Korea has resented the intervention ever since. Just as permeable Western [...]

Dylan Benac is already experienced in the Students’ Association cabinet. After serving the past school year as vice president, he understands how the Congress runs.
But that’s only one reason why we’re endorsing him.
Benac is prepared. He has vision. He has plans.
If elected, Benac would be the only returning SA officer, which would be beneficial for [...]
We have chosen to endorse Anna Fullerton for the position of executive vice president.
The vice president must be capable of managing events and maintaining interpersonal relationships with the Students’ Association Congress. Fullerton, junior psychology major from Garland, has had no experience with SA, but she played a big role in organizing the Red Boot Roundup, [...]
J.P. Ralston has a bold plan for the SA budget process. It could be risky, but it’s a good plan.
Conference fund requests take up a lot of time in SA meetings; just look at our reports about the weekly SA meetings recently. Ralston thinks this is a waste of SA’s time because they have such [...]
Easter evokes many thoughts: bunnies, eggs, pastels, new life and spring. As students on a private Christian university campus, the first image that should come to mind is Jesus’ resurrection. Canceling class on Good Friday is a good recognition of the Easter weekend and gives students a day of rest to remember the saddest day [...]
The issue: Arguments are arising over the same-sex marriage discussions in the Supreme Court.
Our take: The controversial issue over legalizing same-sex marriage should be approached out of love and respect.
An event of historic proportions is taking place– the Supreme Court is hearing and deciding on cases regarding the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California’s ban on [...]
Grease made it cool, Mad Men made it routine and Michael Bloomberg wants it gone. Last week, the New York City mayor introduced two bills proposing a ban on retailers displaying cigarettes. NBC quoted Bloomberg’s reasoning behind the motion, “Such displays suggest smoking is a normal activity and invite young people to experiment with tobacco.” [...]
