November 5, 2013 Readers, you have my most sincere apologies. This Halloween themed addition to the Campus Point is several days late and I could not be more sorry.

October 23, 2013   The ever iconic superman t-shirt. Yesterday was literally a galaxy of shirts, capes, and socks all plastered with that indestructible "S" for which there seems to be no known Kryptonite. The Super Man presence smothers the life force of all other masked men and seekers of justice. Where's the variety? Where are the female super heroes? Wh...

October 22, 2013     Although it was probably tempting to curl up in your comfy pjs and fall asleep, I hope you managed to stay awake today. I saw a surprising amount of relaxed students roaming the halls and almost got lost among the sea of plaid pants and UGG boots. Also, a big ...

May 31, 2013   For most of you, there are still a few years of high school in your future, so summer is a valuable break from school and stress.

By Ella Jensen | Staff Writer May 29, 2013 Yesterday my friends and I were talking about all the sports we participate in.

May 29, 2013 To all the social media addicts/impediments to my academic success who gobble up library computer space: I would think you'd have learned your lesson by now about misusing the library computers. I am most positive the librarians have warned you enough times to work on school related projects instead of updating your Facebook post or re-blogging the lates...

May 23, 2013   The paper clip. Such a simple, wonderful little contraption. But also evil.
