One hundred and four years: a hundred and four years since the Titanic made its iconic journey across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America.   When most people think of the Titanic movie, two quotes typically come to mind: "draw me like one of your French girls" and "I'll never...

It’s astounding how much you can learn from a short time of being back  in school for two weeks, but it’s the stuff outside of class that has affected me most. This school year I was   fortunate enough to get a work study job at the UT Athletic Ticket Office. It’s been incredible to work with...

August 30
Filed under Editorials, Opinion

Decreasing enrollment may be a great sign of regional economic recovery but that has consequences for schools like the University of Toledo.

The Big Apple announces itself in a peculiar way. As I step off the train I see the sidewalks bathed in old black gum, quickly reminding me that I’m not in Kansas anymore — or Toledo I should say. This ‘concrete jungle’, as Alicia Keys would say, is the cradle that molds you into the person you...

This summer I spent a lot of time in my car, driving back and forth between jobs. It was the first summer ever I’d spent not living at home, so I was lonelier than I was used to, not having my four younger siblings around all the time. So I started listening to more podcasts. That’s when I found...

Last weekend, my family canned tomatoes. If you’ve never made homemade tomato juice, sauce or whole tomatoes, you probably don’t know that hot tomatoes smell. The scent gets into your clothes, your hair and your skin. No amount of scrubbing gets rid of the tomato. I’ll forever smell like the acidic...

This fall semester, the student population on campus will boom as a new policy concerning housing requirements will begin its first year. The policy change was enacted last year to require incoming freshmen living outside of a 25-mile radius of the University of Toledo to live on campus for two years. While...

Over the summer I worked three different internships at several newspapers across Toledo. I enjoyed aspects of every single one of them, but the truth is there is no such thing as a “good” internship. Every internship you will ever have will always have great aspects and horrible nightmares. Besides...

Were you one of those people who grew up knowing exactly who they wanted to be when they got older? Were you one of the lucky few who, when asked in 4th grade, proudly said firefighter, author or painter and stuck with it ever since? Well, I wasn’t. I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up....

Be it a break between classes for students or the one place that’s always showcased in tours, the Student Union is the place to go. It is the hub of students, faculty and administration alike. It’s the best place for the daily dose of caffeine and break from work, and to be greeted with the faces...
