Celebrating differences this month and always

Posted by on Feb 22, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

Being proud of who you are is never a bad thing. In this day and age, it can be the difference between self-acceptance and hating yourself for who you are. In the month of February, Americans across the board celebrate Black History Month and black heritage. There has been a rich history with black Americans, but now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate people of color for their souls and who they are. There are many great individuals that the common American has heard of—and loves. For example, Marin Luther King Jr., Malcom X and even Rosa Parks all have an influence on what we have shaped America to be. At Maryville College, we highlight diversity and celebrate the fact that we are all so vastly different. Even though one of those differences is skin color, the...

Students lacking transportation struggle at MC

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Transportation is key, or so they say.  In college, it is all about where something is happening, but it can be hard to get to where you need if you have no means of transportation. At Maryville College, there is a population of students that does not have cars.  As adults, there are times where we need to get places that aren’t always within walking Junior Bryce Redaja explained what it can be like for those who do not have a car.  Redaja is from Phoenix, AZ and lives on campus at Maryville College.  According to Redaja, it would be too far and too expensive for him to drive it to campus, so he does without. Redaja is active on campus through different organizations and the baseball team. Though he has many good friends, Redaja said that it can...

Calling all Harry Potter fans, witches and wizards alike, because “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is taking the world by storm.

Commuting: A blessing and a curse

Being a commuter at Maryville College is hard enough without the added detail that they can sometimes feel like the forgotten population on campus. Most commuters are only on campus long enough to go to class and then they head home because there isn’t much time for other things due to life at home. But most commuters wouldn’t have it any other way. Even through all the hardships, there is still a silver lining. Senior Kandyn Leach describes what it’s like to live off campus. “I love commuting, I really do. It’s nice to live at home and be able to watch my younger siblings grow up,” said Leach. She explained that even though it can be difficult to live off campus with class cancellations and inclement weather, her family is what matters to her most, and that is...
