Theater is life. I do not mean this is in a new age meme way but in the sense that when people work together to create art on stage you, as an actor, are essentially playing at God. You create life, you end life, you live life. You bring meaning to words on a page and give a purpose to the charact...

I never would have thought that something as simple as a piece of paper from my third grade teacher would turn into something that not only has defined my life but my entire family’s life as well. That simple piece of paper was an ad for a basketball program called Viking Elite and it changed the...

In recent weeks, videos of creepy clowns have erupted and gone viral all over Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, showing eerie footage of sinister-looking clowns walking down the street.

Staffer Piqued by Parking

As a new driver, parallel parking can be the most terrifying part of driving. It is something most of us probably failed on our driver's test and as someone who has had their license for over a year, I still hate it. It is painful to attempt the perfect three-step parking job but even worse when you...

Starbucks released their Chile Mocha Sept. 6 alongside the traditional fall favorite the Pumpkin Spice Latte. The Chile Mocha is an overrated beverage with spices that can clear sinuses after only one sip. Starbucks Coffee is constantly revising their already critically acclaimed menu to keep coffee...

In 2014 I went on a trip that would change my life forever. For most people, the first-out-of country experience is not going across the world to China. But there I was, an incoming sophomore in high school, flying 12 hours across the globe to do service projects in Langfang China. I went with my mom an...

I was raised to never judge a book by its cover but after listening to what Donald Trump has to say, it is hard not to wonder how far off I would have been in my judgement. Trump is the biggest source of entertainment in this year’s elections and puts a lot of people off, yet he still leads in the...
