"America the Beautiful?" Coke’s Super Bowl commercial

Feb 12, 2014

We saw a puppy forging a friendship with a horse, a guy losing his mind while in a Doritos time machine, the 80’s calling Radio Shack for their store back and a look into the amazing developments in the field of technology. These are just some of the many commercials that aired during the big game. We all know that when it comes to the Super Bowl, commercials are a big deal.

After all, companies pay millions of dollars in order to get a coveted spot in between the plays. It has become so big that there are even commercials for the commercials! 

Arctic attacks ONU

Jan 29, 2014

Temperatures extending below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Wind chills reaching close to -20 degrees. As I wake up in the morning and check my cell phone for the weather, I groan and wish I can cover my body with my blankets and stay warm for the continuation of the day. 

College pro-tips for the new semester

Jan 22, 2014

Let's all just take a minute and admit our collective hatred for the month of January, alright? Christmas is over, so the snow and cold feel completely unwarranted, break is over, classes resume and now you've got to try and remember not to go to your classrooms from last semester, lest you be greeted by people you've never seen before. Most people agree that it's the most depressing month of the year, and keep in mind that some of these "most" are people who attend universities in Florida, Hawaii and other gorgeous destinations.

Martin Luther King's legacy still felt today

Jan 22, 2014

Martin Luther King is a figure that I've learned about my whole life. It started as soon as I was in school and basically never stopped. I used to wonder why we studied him a little bit every year, until I was in the 10th grade. In our social studies class, we went on an in-depth walk through the Civil Rights Movement. I was so surprised to learn about Dr. King. He led the charge for the Civil Rights Movement for many years, facing threats of many kinds, including threats on his family. He was jailed, beaten and eventually killed for his beliefs.
