Written by Missy Deal. Media by Katie Wallace. Around here at Greenville College, there is a lot of commotion about community. We all have heard it in classes, from the pulpit in chapel, from upper classmen, and have heard administration using this word as a point of advertising for the college.

Are you “All In”?

Written by Doug Faulkner. Media by Katie Wallace. On cold winter nights In the early 1980's, my friends and I would often walk across Scott Field from our dorm to the warm and cozy confines of HJ Long to take in some college basketball action. The Panthers were usually in a tight battle with an opposing conference foe from the old Prairie College Conference, the forerunner to the SLIAC (our current athletic ...

“Hoka Hey,” or “today is a good day to die”, is a phrase derived from the Lakota Indian tribe. This phrase, yelled by Lakota warriors riding into battle, typically connotes that if one dies, he can die peacefully because he has done everything in his ability to live through the battle and to see the next day. Consequently, death no longer fills the warriors with fear—quite the affect of a two-word phrase. ...

Easter: What it Means to Us

To Christians, Easter is a time where we happily reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus.
