Columnist encourages students to get outside

Over the past five months we have been running from building to building and avoiding every possible reason to have to go out into the blistering cold. Now that the sun is shining and the thermometers are reading over 40 degrees, it is sure refreshing to see the grassy areas come to life. Now that […]

College students meet money issues daily

Money is something that has great importance in our everyday lives, but holds different value for each and every one of us. Generally, college students can be considered poor. The “poor college student” label is nothing we haven’t heard before, and for good reason. Being a college student, I know that at this point in […]

Columnist questions careless conversation

Personal privacy is a concept that many college students understand and want when it comes to most issues in their lives. However, I have recently noticed a growing number of students on campus who don’t seem to understand that a private conversation cannot be considered private if it can be heard by those around you. […]

Freshman advises students to remember home

Home sweet home. As first year students we are required to live on campus. Prior to this year I was somewhat worried about living away from my home. The first few weeks of second semester were quite different from the first couple of weeks of last semester.  Upon move in I wasn’t sure what to […]

Students know where to find distractions, stray from study habits

It’s hard to believe that it’s already second semester. I feel like I just finished moving in and organizing my stuff; however, the organization part is still a work in progress. As a freshman, the first semester was an entirely new experience, with new friends, new living situations and a whole new level of classes […]

Freshman suggests methods for handling finals stress

Congratulations freshmen, we’ve made it through our first semester as college students.  I’m definitely feeling the stress that everyone has always talked about. With projects, presentations and tests it seems like we hardly have time to breathe. It’s easy for us to get carried away and forget what’s really important here: our own well-being. We […]

Freshmen discover lots to love about college life; looking forward to more

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving break is already here and gone. Where has the time gone? Over the past few months I have been filling you in on my viewpoints of living, partying and learning here at UW-River Falls. I was starting to think, what else will people what to hear? This week my […]

College experience exposes higher levels of maturity

As young adults many aspects of our lives are changing. We are now in college and feeling miles away from our senior year in high school. For the first time, a number of us are finding new responsibilities and challenges that we never had to face while living at home. If you think back to […]

University expectations demand more studying

With midterms already here, it’s crazy to think that we’ve been in college for seven weeks now. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. Fun is exactly what college is, too. However, it seems easy to get carried away with all the fun that’s available and forget about what we’re really here for. College […]

New freedoms require freshmen to take extra precautions

We freshmen have now had a whole month to start getting a feel of what real college parties are like. Wow, are they ever amazing. It wasn’t long ago that I was walking in the front door of my house at my midnight curfew and wishing that I didn’t have anyone to tell me what […]

Dorm life poses special challenges for only child

Here I am, finally in college. I am a freshman this year and as an only child I am learning rather quickly how different life can be when you have people around you 24-7. I can imagine we all, for the most part, had the same idea of what life would be like here. The […]
