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.

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.

Is a cold Super Bowl a good thing?

MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. is not indoors. The Super Bowl is held in February. This does not make for a pleasurable outdoor football game, that is with good weather.

In the spirit of fair play, you would want a game without the elements to give both teams an equal chance to run their offense and win the game their own way. With this year's edition being outdoors, it plays a huge role is decreasing a team like the Broncos' chances of effectively running their passing attack.
