UW Oshkosh’s final play of the season opened Thursday night as a few planes coincidentally flew low over the Fredric March Theater minutes before the show began. “Boeing Boeing,” a play about as bouncy and playful as the title itself, takes place in Paris in the 1960s, following a bachelor named...

Every student at UW Oshkosh is required to fill out a Student Opinion Survey for their classes each semester to evaluate their instructors. However, the student body as a whole seems to be uncertain of who gets to see the results of these surveys or how effective they are at shaping instructor performances. “We...

“Make sure you grab your pepper spray, make sure you walk around campus with a buddy and lock your doors, no matter what time of day it is.” As a student starting school at UW-Milwaukee, these were the type of reminders I would get from my family members on a daily basis. It comes as no surprise...

This was my first time reporting at a presidential event. To put it simply, what an experience. I attended a press conference at the Green Bay Labor Temple at 10 a.m. that day. I met a radio station reporter there whose first words to me were, “Have you reported at a Trump event before?” I said...

Dating is not something that comes easily to me. As a guy whose last relationship was in high school, followed by 10 years of an on-again, off-again relationship with college, I’ve got some work to do in the “meeting girls” department. Somewhere down the line, a friend convinced me to get an...

The United States has been facing a variety of domestic problems over the last decade and a seemingly rapid increase in the number of shootings or other gun-related violence.

Tis’ the season — election season, and since it is the season, why not talk about our two-party system? The trend of hyperpartisanship has led to a virtual stalemate within American politics. Both sides of the political aisle have essentially become so stubborn that neither side allows for...

Video game industry is growing, gaining more acceptance

Filed under Columnist, Opinion

For years it seems that being a “gamer,” or one who plays video games, has been quite a stigma. Over more recent years, this seems to have shifted a bit. Video gaming and the people who participate in the activity have been held in a negative light in the past. People haven’t considered the “sport” ...

Student votes are important in determining results of midterm elections

I’m going to do something a little bit unusual for the opinion section and share a personal secret. Ready to hear it? I did not vote in the 2016 presidential election. Scandalous, I know. But to be fair, I was far from the only one. In fact, research has shown that young people tend to vote less when c...
