Follow dreams, but don’t let them consume you

Sarah Fulton, sports editor

As children we are told to follow our dreams. As adults we make bucket lists as a way of dealing with our own mortality. We judge our lives on what we have done, what items we have checked off our list. The problem is dreams become idealized. Every little detail is planned out. The focus is so much...

Is America Islamophobic? The recent uproar over the Park51 project, commonly known as the "Ground Zero Mosque," located two blocks from Ground Zero, has made me wonder this question. In its most positive light, Park51 is a modest proposal. To call the project a mosque is not entirely accurate....

As the iPhone and iTouch become more popular among students, The JagWire reviews some different applications. Talking Tom: Sure your cat can play with a ball of yarn, but Tom the cat can talk to you.

What do rubber bands, animals and fashion accessories have to do with each other? Normally, nothing. SillyBandz have come up with a way to bridge the gap and I like it.

Our generation is in need of a perspective change

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

I’m spoiled. I’ll admit it because it’s completely true; I have never gone without in my life (P.S. a parent telling you no on the iPhone isn’t going without.) I’ve been lucky enough to have parents that have provided a very, very comfortable standard of living. And I know that I am not alone...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

In my parent’s day, The Beatles, John F. Kennedy, Michael Jackson, Princess Diana and Mother Teresa influenced their generation in a way they could never affect ours.
