As a person who is frequently asked if I am a dog person or a cat person, I usually stutter out a very quiet and shy "rabbit person?"

Fruitcake; the epitome of the word nasty. For centuries the “dessert” has been brought into our homes for Christmas parties or as a gift from neighbors. You smile and say thanks, but when they turn their backs, you throw it away. There's so many things wrong with it. Sophomore Dylan Rath says,...

I personally love country music. I’ve listened to it for as long as I can remember and it has always been my favorite genre of music. However, today’s country music is absolute garbage and an insult to legendary artists such as Hank Williams and George Jones. Country music once had a terrific meaning wi...
