Why I Stopped Wearing My Purity Ring

Written by Rachel Hoover. Media by John Freeman. Every morning since the day after I turned fourteen I have slipped a simple, silver band onto my left ring finger and gone about my day. That is, every day until this past fall when I stopped. “What’s the big deal about this ring?” you may ask. This ring is my purity ring, which is meant to represent my vow to abstain from having sex outside of marriage. Some ...

A Response to “Open Dorm Hours Are Confusing”

Written by Brian Gertler. Media by Tawnie Kozora. As a CRE at Greenville, I am often asked about rules and regulations regarding anything from having pets in a room, to whether smoking weed is allowed if it’s legal in a student’s home state. One of the most common complaints I’ve gotten from students is the confusing rules and times of open house hours. Before I lay out the official policies of the college ...

Go Take a Walk

Written by Dylan Deppe. Media by Rachel Koehnemann. We’re starting to get down to the nitty-gritty of things. Most students agree that spring semester is harder than the fall semester. While you can easily place their bets on the phenomena known as allergies, losing a graduating senior you really liked, having to pack your dorm or apartment up, and what you’re going to do for a summer job, most people ultim ...

To All The Teachers

Written by Allison Perry. Media by John Freeman. For the past couple of weeks, I have been looking forward to the first week of May. Why?

Birth Control is Much More Than That

Written by Allison Perry. Media by Tawnie Kozora. A common belief is that women take birth control to avoid getting pregnant. However, birth control is used for more than contraception. These pills help regulate hormones in the body. They are made of two synthetic hormones: estrogen and progestin (similar to hormones made by the ovaries). There are very small amounts of hormones in the pills, but they have ...

Bald Is Better

Written by Dylan Deppe. Media by John Freeman. What do people think about your hair? Do your friends or family ever say to you, “You’ve had that hairstyle for soooo long. You should get a new one.” Do you ever feel pressure? Pompadours, top knots, buzzcuts, lobs, slickbacks, bobs, flat tops, mohawks, and braids. There are a lot of hair styles out there.

Open-Dorm Hours are Confusing

Written by Dylan Deppe. Media by John Freeman. What’s the deal with open-dorm hours?  They're when you can have your significant other, or anyone of the opposite gender, over to your room. You're allowed to have them over, but only at specific times, and on specific days, and in specific lounges.  It is not as controversial as Chapel or the D.C. food, but not too many people are fans of either the concept o ...

Cats are Amazing

Written by Allison Perry. Media by Tawnie Kozora. We all know about cats. The dictionary defines cats as “a small domesticated carnivore… bred in a number of varieties.” However, if I were to define cats, I would say they are goofy, adorable, cuddly fur-balls that can sometimes be rude. They can be super sweet one second and then bite you out of nowhere. That’s the average cat. We've all encountered the dem ...

Hear Their Voices

Written and Media by Tawnie Kozora. Everyone has a story. Imagine you and some friends are sitting at a table in the DC. You look over and see an Asian international student sitting alone. You probably think to yourself, “she wants to sit alone” or “he probably can’t speak English.” The truth is, that person has been studying English for years and would probably enjoy a conversation with you.  The internati ...
