    Many reasons to be thankful

    Nov 29, 17 • 122 Views • Olivia Burger, OpinionNo Comments

    by Thanksgiving is a weird holiday when you stop and think about it. Once a celebration commemorating friendship and gratitude between the pilgrims and the Native Americans, the holiday has turned into a day dedicated to stuffing our faces, watching football...

    Editor excited for future

    Nov 14, 17 • 490 Views • Olivia Burger, OpinionNo Comments

    by Twenty is a weird age. At 20, some of the people I graduated high school with are getting married and having babies, while some still live with their parents. Some people already have real adult jobs with full benefits, and some are still working the same...

    Music gives editor life

    Oct 31, 17 • 658 Views • Olivia Burger, OpinionNo Comments

    by My taste in music has always been a little whack. I got a lot of guff in high school for having a “weird” taste in music — aka anything that wasn’t country or played on Star 104. But my time spent at Gannon has taught me that my taste in music...

    What has Twitter come to?

    Sep 26, 17 • 309 Views • Olivia Burger, OpinionNo Comments

    by I first got a Twitter account when I was in ninth grade. While procrastinating studying over the weekend, I decided I’d waste an hour of my life scrolling through my 10,000 archived tweets and retweets to find my first ever tweet. It reads: “Who needs...

    GIVE Day inspires editor

    Sep 19, 17 • 261 Views • Olivia Burger, OpinionNo Comments

    by The first time I participated in GIVE Day it was because I was forced to. I suppose that sounds misleading because it wasn’t like I was shoved onto a school bus and dropped off at some random Erie neighborhood, and expected to pick up trash against my...

    by For most college students, an off-campus apartment is the ideal housing situation for your junior and senior year. You hopefully can upgrade to a bigger bed, your own room and possibly some air conditioning, with total freedom to do whatever you want...
