Do you remember the moment that you realized what you wanted to be in life? What was that moment; when was it? Did it happen yet?

For Brett Deubner, an international solo violist, that moment was clear. Nine years ago, Brett walked onto the stage in front of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra to perform a then-new viola concerto composed by Lalo Schifrin. Looking out at the audience, and hearing their applause, Brett was filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment he hadn’t felt before, and at that moment he knew he wanted to keep doing that for the rest of his life.

Getting cut from a team can be a huge discouragement. It may make you think you never want to play the sport again, or that you aren’t any good at it. This was not the case for ONU sophomore Bradley Lauback. Getting cut from the volleyball team in high school still left a desire in him to continue the sport. Lauback joined the Men’s Club Volleyball team his freshman year and despite the team suffering some big losses, he strived to change the way the team was heading.

Starting out the year for college students is a magical time with a bank account filled all the way to the top. After spending the fall semester breaking into the fund that a summer job brought and working through winter break to build up a small amount of what you lost, something important comes to mind… Budgeting.

Creating a budget is something no one ever really wants to do but for people with such limited funds, like college students, it's super important to decide what to spend money on and how much is allowed.

Exam days are the scariest thing to all college students. These long winded tests pop-up, what seems like, out of nowhere just to scare you into focusing more in class.

Finals aren’t actually scary because you have practiced that professor's method of testing and can be prepared. The very first exam is like falling over a ledge and hoping a net will catch you.

Over 23 percent of millennials say their credit score has cost them a home, a loan or a new line of credit.
