A game of administrative musical chairs is currently going on at the University of Toledo. The top three positions — president, provost and chancellor — have all been vacated by their former holders within fewer than three months of each other. A bunch of high-level, high-salary decisions might...

I don’t remember who he is anymore, but I doubt I will ever forget that last time I saw him. At the beginning of my second semester at the University of Toledo, I was passing by a seat outside of Bowman-Oddy when I caught eyes with another freshman. We had gone to a simple orientation class together....

PepsiCo’s CEO admitted to it. Professionals on LinkedIn are posting on their personal accounts about it. We have unearthed yet another reason to be collectively and irately loud about — women cannot have it all. We are go-getting, career-having, Victoria’s Secret wearing, nurturing, loving beings...

Imagine a pot made of brown clay, not extraordinary in appearance, certainly not anything you would pick out of a line up. It has no designated purpose. You could fill it with a bouquet of your favorite flowers and some water, and it would become a vase. You could pour hot coffee into it, forever staining...

Imagine my surprise when I walked out of Gillham Hall to a downpour that was operating on a monsoon level. I probably wouldn’t have been so caught off guard if I had bothered to check the weather, but that’s beside the point. There I was with no umbrella, and a car that, at that moment seemed...

Imagine that you’ve just gone through something so horrific that it consumes every second of your day. The whole world looks different, and no matter what, your attention is derailed by unwanted memories. You’re struggling with what to do — even if you were forced to relive this awful experience,...

“Hello. My name is D... D... D...” I would generally let out a sigh or a grunt at this point. “D... D... sorry. I am D... D... Dustin!” This is a greeting that many of the people I have met at the University of Toledo receive. Am I nervous? No. Am I afraid? No. I have a stutter. I have...

Have you ever been talking to someone so intently that you didn’t listen to a word they said? You knew they were probably pouring out their soul to you, in what was no doubt, an unexpected bout in wisdom. Through the course of your conversation you were most likely rapt with attention, clinging...

What is Auxiliary Services? It’s where the University of Toledo puts all the student services that don’t have a home, like the student ID card, dining services and the copy center. To be blunt, Auxiliary Services is a tangled ball of yarn that has only recently begun to unravel. One strand...

I have been obsessed with my personal safety after watching too much CSI: Las Vegas when I was younger. One year for Halloween I dressed up as some kind of safety officer/post-apocalyptic garbage woman. I was decked out from head to toe with my dad’s hard helmet, safety goggles, rubber gloves, orange...

All things about the University of Toledo are new to our new students, but upper-level students will immediately notice the differences: the facelift on the lawn in front of Memorial Field House, the seemingly endless construction, and the president being visible on campus. Yes, you read that correctly:...
