Sports

Rugby culture differs from other sports

April 22nd, 2015

UW-River Falls men’s and women’s local club rugby culture differs from major U.S. sports in competitive and social aspects. Rugby is a simple game. It can be played with as little as a uniquely shaped ball, a mouth guard and a bunch of bodies with some shorts.

Editorial:
Campus response to Earth Day feels highly lackluster

April 23rd, 2015

Earth Day is more than acknowledging the sun’s warmth, walking around on grass for a couple minutes or getting your feet wet, it’s purpose is raising awareness and setting off good habits for the rest of the year until the next reminder.

Letters to the editor

Student Senate lacks appropriate governmental documentation

April 22nd, 2015

I have been attempting to follow the actions of the UW-River Falls Student Senate through their records. Senate’s records as posted online aren’t complete and show alteration. For example, all of the agendas posted by Senate in 2014-2015 show as being posted at 9:02 a.m. on April 21. This makes it impossible for a citizen to ascertain if the agendas were posted late, changed after the fact or altered in some way. What should be an official government document now has no validity and is impossible to verify.
