Student Voice works for your information

Working for a paper, I’ve witnessed a large amount of ridiculousness. Although sometimes ridiculousness can turn into a mess, sometimes it adds to things of betterness. Every Wednesday night our little family of at least 11 puts this thing that you’re reading together: the paper. Your very own campus newspaper. What comes with a paper […]

River Falls bars defy expectations, serve surprises

Week two’s bar review definitely adds to the smorgasbord of establishments in River Falls. But before you choose your favorite place, make sure to visit them all. It doesn’t have to be in one night, of course … but that’s always fun, too. The Library Usually the last place college students end up, they’ll only […]

River Falls bars cater to diverse crowds

Ah, yes, downtown River Falls-a place full of options that never fails to please. I’m talking bars, of course. I began conducting my River Falls bar research this summer, taking notes that progressively got sloppier as the night went on. Analyzing the atmosphere, specials, music opportunities, overall cleanliness and bathrooms (keep in mind that’s the […]

Happy cows come from smart management choices

You’ve seen those “Happy Cows Come From California” commercials advertising California cheese, right? Those Cali. cows have it made—they’re free to roam endless acres of meadows with soft, luscious grass, and the sun shining all the time. They love everything in California, including the earthquake “foot massages.” There’s the grandcow who doesn’t like to talk […]

College students advised to run away from monotony

I’m kind of angry right now; I’m trying to pinpoint the cause of my anger, but I can’t seem to put a finger on it. As soon as I think I have the reason, a new one pops into my head. It’s not the weather that’s put me in this mood; I like cloudy skies […]

Columnist wonders where the college has gone

A marketing agency out of the Twin Cities has begun figuring out what UW-River Falls is all about. Its goal is to identify a platform that UWRF can use to market itself to the world.  Prospective students will know exactly what UWRF has to offer and why they should choose this university over others. What […]

Auto insurance confirms safety, reliability

Every automobile has its own history in a similar way that every individual has his or her own history. A responsible automobile’s owner should treat and handle it well to prolong mechanical life and should hope that everyone else would do the same. My first car was a slightly used 2001 Chrysler Sebring and my […]

Expectations may ruin the outcome of events

Do you remember the process you went through to go to college? I’m not talking about filling out applications and going on college visits; I’m talking about mental thought process. Did you always know you were going to go to college? Did the thought of college shine upon you one day during high school biology […]

Stereotypes show differences between boys’ and girls’ ideas

“I’m sick of guys; they’re so typical.” And “girls—they’re just so difficult.” He can only devote himself to one thing at a time, whether it’s sports, music or taking on new leadership roles. But she handles school, a job, her boyfriend, her problems, painting her nails daily and her friends’ problems consistently. She’s usually more […]

Insignificant complaining comparable to that of a plague

I’m not a fan of complaining. It’s annoying, it’s tedious, and it makes me want to get in your face and ask you to“shut the hell up.” So naturally, I’m going to complain about your complaining. The weather. You’re living in Wisconsin, a state with four seasons. You know the order of the seasons, and, […]

Columnist dares students to do something different

The majority of people on this earth get annoyed once in a while. Generally, the people that usually don’t get annoyed do the annoying. If you’re one of those people who get annoyed, you know what it’s like to want to flee for your sanity. You know—that girl in class who always asks a question […]

Indecision useful in everyday life

“Indecision is the key to flexibility.” I never thought my first column would spark off a quote from the back of a Hooter’s post-meal wet-nap. Some people could successfully argue that being indecisive is a negative quality. And for some indecisive people, it could be. Until I read the package of the horrible smelling hand-sanitizing […]
