We’ve all heard people say that “there is nothing to do in Toledo.” However, there truly is a treasure-trove of things to do around campus if you just look around! I have compiled a list of some things I have done personally or heard good things about. Add some of these to your college bucket list...

We all already know about the crazy, roller coaster ride that this year’s presidential race has been, but what a lot of people seem to be glazing over are the very real consequences to our society because of the hateful rhetoric coming from it.

It is not unusual to see “bad nuts” in every occupation, and the occupation of professors is not immune to this. Among professors are those who actually care about the impact they’re making in the classroom, and those that just care about making a paycheck. Like any other academic institution,...

Just a few days ago, I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed and saw a cute notification: “Congrats Emily, you’ve been friends with Jessica Harker for one year! Time to celebrate!” First of all, Facebook is getting really creepy with reminding me about events. Secondly, I can’t believe...

A mountain of file cabinets protrudes from the stage floor. A desk. A couch. A decrepit wheelchair. Suddenly, a brightly costumed cast emerges from a secret door within the file cabinets. The University of Toledo Department of Theater and Film presents the final farce of Molière, The Imaginary Invalid. The file cab...

First, for those of you who don’t know that much about fencing, it actually holds three different events for three different types of swords: foil, epee and sabre, sabre being the best of course!

There is no second guessing that our society is going through a very nasty presidential campaign process. The mood is repulsive and statements that we’d normally frown upon are becoming acceptable in our public spaces. Some say it comes with the currents; that we should allow a little bit of loose...

I’m studying abroad in England right now, and if there’s one thing we know about the country, it’s that they call soccer, football, and that it’s often cold and rainy.

It’s that time of year again. No, we don’t mean the time of pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking and general fall fun. It’s the time of year when all the people who love Halloween a little too much come out of the woodwork. It’s time to get spooky. But what happens when scaring people goes too...

We all know the saying “better late than never” so why then do some teachers believe it’s better not to accept late work whatsoever? Being a student, I completely understand the trials and tribulations one encounters on a daily basis. That being said, sometimes students are just unable to complete...

Do you remember how excited you were whenever you heard that statement, “All right kids, we’re going on vacation!?” I don’t know about you, but it was among the top five statements to hear my parents make; well, maybe the most important statement for a 10-year-old kid. I want to think that everybody...
