March 11, 2014 Does the thought having someone accidentally brush their fingers across that piece of gum you left under the desk provide you with immense satisfaction?

By Destinee Cannon | Staff Writer February 13, 2014 Why is it that everyone either has a love or hate relationship with Flappy Bird? The people that get high scores obviously love the game, but others, like me, say they hate the game because they can't get a high score.  I can't count th...

February 3, 2014 Hey you, yeah you. You know who I'm talking to.   Stop sniffling right now and pick up a Kleenex. Everyone in the room can hear the snorting of slippery snot.

January 23, 2014   630 days. 42 different classes. 7 previous semesters. After this much time, it seems like the simple act of finding classes would become almost second nature.
