Student protests fruit-strewn sidewalks

Apr 30, 2014

Behold ONU:  a small-town cornfield campus known for safety, Pharmacy, and all around good students and staff.  You may nod, reader, at the droll ordinariness of that statement.  But, assuming that you are either enrolled or employed at ONU, you probably feel some positive emotion toward our small, friendly campus.  I’ve come to inform you that that warm fuzzy feeling of security is under attack.  Also under attack is our supply of fruit.

Students offered early graduation walk

Apr 15, 2014

The Office of Academic Affairs has instituted a change in the graduation ceremony procedure.  Until now, the policy for students on walking at graduation was quite specific— the student must qualify for graduation by the end of that semester.  The new policy change allows for leniency, especially for students who will finish in the following summer or fall semester.  If a student is a semester behind schedule, he may still be allowed to participate in commencement ceremonies with his class, provided he meet one of the three qualifications cited.

Pastabilities provides much needed alternative

Apr 09, 2014

"With pasta, all things are possible."  I like to think that this was the inspiration behind White Bear's newest meal choice, Pastabilities.  Though its name might be corny, the new pasta bar is a success in my book.  

It has been a few weeks since the Pastabilities line opened, and it seems to be a success if the number of students eating there can be measured as such.  Before the option was introduced, 1:30-4:30 p.m. was something of a dead spot at White Bear.  Now, lines are longer and, from my view, it seems more are being attracted to White Bear during lunch time.

Ada in need of more businesses

Apr 02, 2014

Walking down Main St. of Ada, one of the first things I notice is the number of empty storefronts.  Sadly, some businesses have a difficult time becoming established in downtown Ada.  This is not a unique phenomenon.  Across America, Main Streets are dying.
