After a rough start, the UW-River Falls men’s basketball team evened its record to 3-3 with back-to-back wins over Sioux Falls and Viterbo as they head into their conference schedule Saturday against UW-Oshkosh. “I think we all know we maybe should have won another game or two in there, but we are what we are,” […]

Deer hunting parties diminish, traditions continue with strength

We all know what’s going on this weekend. If you have no idea what I’m talking about then I truly am sorry, there is no hope for you. This weekend will be the 11th installment of Deer Camp in my life. If you’ve read any of my columns in the past and you’re waiting for […]

Campus newspaper delivers information, provides opportunity

At 10 p.m. Wednesday night some students are busy relaxing, while others are celebrating a successful hump day at the bar. But for a small group of students in North Hall room 304, there is not time to relax as the finishing touches of the Student Voice are frantically being applied. “At 10 p.m. tensions […]

Stagnant locals supported by Facebook

I have devoted the majority of my post-high school life to fighting one key concept. Post High School humans can be grouped into two large groups. The first, the “mover-onners” are people who, for the most part, go to college, make new friends and lead a normal life. The second are the people we’re all […]

Hunting for jobs is no easy battle

A funny thing happened to me the other day, and I imagine I’m not the only one of my kind. I’ve been a bit introspective lately, listening to Harry Chapin and Coldplay rather than Kings of Leon and Jet. If it persists for another couple of weeks I’ll start wondering about the possibilities of a […]

Economic troubles mean fewer loans for UWRF students

The financial crisis is causing a significant reduction in loan programs at UW-River Falls as enrollment is on the rise and many talented new students come to campus. What has always made UWRF attractive to potential students—affordable tuition, proximity in relation to the twin cities and books being included with tuition—is making the campus even […]

Politicians open mouths, lose credibility, risk votes

I am in fact a fraud. It is factually correct that I previously stated that I would not write another column subjecting innocent readers to my “radical” conservative views. I must prove that statement to be a lie, by writing another political column. But understand this, my little liberal minions, it’s not my fault. I […]

Reality gets derailed by personal fantasies

Sometimes a person anticipates an important moment in their life for a long enough time to develop a perception of how that moment will take place. For example you sit in class in high school for four long years awaiting that graduation day of retribution where you will give a rousing speech about the system […]

UWRF professors weigh in on economic bailout

The U.S. Senate passed a revised version of the $700 billion bailout Oct. 1 in an effort to alleviate financial burdens that bad mortgages have placed on banks. “The purpose of this [bill] isn’t to bail out Wall Street,” UW-River Falls economics professor Glenn Potts said. “It’s to keep the credit markets moving.” The credit […]

Shady politicians are still able to capture fans

I was sitting in an unnamed worthless class a few weeks ago as a discussion about the current election arose with the not so objective professor being the moderator. Sometimes I get tired of fighting the good fight, but not this day. I heard the most definitive statement about college students and politics ever uttered. […]

Falcons finish strong at Griak

Junior cross country runner Becca Jordahl broke her previous record at the Griak Invitational en route to defending her title while the men’s team placed two runners in the top 15 Sept. 27. “Based from last year we had a huge improvement in time from everybody,” co-Women’s Coach Scott Sekelsky said. “Overall I’m really happy […]
