Dear Freshmen: Please shower

Dear Freshmen, It’s that time of year again, the time that an unpleasant topic needs to be addressed. For many of you, this is the longest you’ve gone without parental supervision; however, this is still no excuse for poor hygiene. You can’t make a good impression if the thing someone remembers most is the way...

Wright State Parking: Shut Up and Take My Money!

Yes, this is an article about parking at Wright State.  No, this article is not going to claim WSU needs to build a parking garage or that there aren’t enough parking spots on campus.  There are plenty of parking spots on campus.  Every time I drive past lot 8 by Nischwitz Stadium it’s at most...

Dear Freshmen

Dear Freshmen, Do you have an “app capable” device? If so, you should be taking advantage of the apps which are very useful for many of your classes.

The answer lies not in affirmation, but in acknowledgement.   Regardless of one’s theological philosophies, any arbitrary student...

Opinion: Wright Police State

With the arrival of a new academic year at WSU, the perennial complaints of over-sold parking rise from the exhaust of lots brimming with idling cars and wandering pedestrians. Before the collective eye-rolling of faculty, staff, and veteran students begins, I should like to distinguish this grievance as a matter of personal liberty rather than...

Letter to the Editor- Aurora, CO Shooting

To Whom It May Concern, By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the tragic and senseless shooting at the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, CO. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, and their friends and families. This is no doubt a devastatingly difficult time in their lives, emotionally, spiritually, and, believe it...
