H2H: Is Valentine’s Day Really All About Love?

By Alisa Patience and Natalie Parkin

February 5, 2018

Take Time to Celebrate Love By Alisa Patience The older we get, the more time seems to blend together. It feels like spring semester just started even though it's already February, and I, for one, am losing track of semesters. When another holiday approaches I am taken aback, surprised as it feel...

Parkin: Breaking Bad Habits

By Natalie Parkin

February 2, 2018

Most of the problems students have spawn from bad habits we’ve developed throughout college, and they tend to make our grades suffer. The snooze button, social media, skipping a class that doesn’t take roll, unhealthy eating, putting assignments off until tomorrow. Sound familiar? There are three...

Cell phones, over the last couple of years, have taken over our lives. They are by our side 24/7. If we ever leave them in the room next to us, we feel bare and connectionally lost. This constant need to have and check our cell phones has been described by Dr. Larry Rosen as the “iDisorder.” It changes...

Parkin: Let Us Prove You Wrong

By Natalie Parkin

January 28, 2018

As a millennial, someone between the ages of 18 to 29, I know quite a bit about my generation and the assumptions made about it. People view my generation as lazy, selfish, entitled, a “me-me-me” generation. Although this may be true for some, I can assure you, it does not apply to all of us. ...

Parkin: We Owe Happiness to Money

Some high school students know exactly what they want to study in college.

January 15, 2018

Loneliness is not uncommon among young adults, especially in college. It’s ironic that someone on a campus swarming with students can feel more alone than ever. It seems that social lives start over every semester, and, in a library filled with students, it’s difficult to make friends. It’s...

Christmas music is back on the radio, jollier than ever. Once Thanksgiving is officially over, the holiday season seems to hit us all at once, wherever we go.

2018 is almost upon us. The New Year will soon make its big entrance and resolutions will be made once again.

By Natalie Parkin

The state of Utah is commonly known for two things: the best snow and the worst drivers. When it comes to driving in the winter time, these two statements can be a deadly combination for those with a driver's license.
