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.

Therapy dogs bring cuteness and comfort to campus

Apr 30, 2014

We’re all posting the obligatory Facebook statuses about finals-related stress, tweeting the typical “finals-are-coming-and-I-can’t-even” memes and calling home for the first time in weeks, scaring our parents senseless with our sobbing. But, my friends, there is hope. 

This coming Monday, from 7-9 p.m. in Heterick Memorial Library, SPC is doing something outrageously wonderful. If you show up at the library during these magical hours, there will be dogs for you to play with on the first floor. I’m not kidding. It’s a Facebook event, so it’s a real thing. 

Peep Population Pulverized

Apr 15, 2014

Now, I am not a big fan of Peeps. I do not like how they taste. I do not like how their beady eyes follow me around a room. I do not like the weird color they stain your hands and mouth as the sugary sandpaper of a coating comes off. I do not like it when they are disguised by chocolate or playfully placed on easter cookie trays. 

All that being said, I cannot stand by and watch our school mutilate Peeps for the pure enjoyment of NOM milkshakes. Someone has to take a stand against these murders. 

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.
