If I could say one thing about feminism or the advancement of women it would be that we have to be on our own side. Who else is going to fight for women, if not women? It’s become part of our culture, part of the way we are socialized and it’s a common theme on television and in movies that women...

The Book Nook

Editorial

September 17, 2015

Although this column is called “The Book Nook”, I am writing about an essay I have discovered in my women writers class the past week. This essay totally blew my mind because of all the interpretations that can become of it. This has become probably my favorite essay. Everyone should read it and...

Right to bear arms comes with problems that need attention

Editorial

September 16, 2015

How many more people have to die before we realize we have a gun problem in this country? The shooting at Delta State was an isolated incident and nowhere near the level of destruction of other recent mass shootings, but three people still lost their lives due to gun violence.

Bri Shelton, columnist

September 15, 2015

If a survey was given out to voters across the country, I guarantee most of them would agree with me: banishing the traditional political parties is a must to further our country’s greatness and potential to thrive.

Marshall University lost 21-10 at the hands of rival Ohio University in its road opener Saturday putting its season record at 1-1 in a game that those with allegiances to the Marshall program would prefer to delete from the record book and their respective minds.

There have been many shootings in this country recently. Some feel that the guns are to blame and others feel that it’s the government’s fault, but regardless of who is to blame it’s still a major problem that needs to be dealt with.

Jocelyn Gibson, Executive Editor

September 9, 2015

I joined a feminist group on Facebook. I know, Facebook was my first mistake, but I am always looking for ways to connect with other like-minded people and I thought this would be a good way.
