I’m a firm believer in the idea that “everything happens for a reason.” I don’t know why COVID-19 has impacted our world the way it has, but I trust that there’s something I can gain from this experience. If I’ve learned anything during the pandemic, it’s perspective. I never dreamed that my la...

Wow, I would have never imagined in a million years that this is how I would spend my last semester of college at UW Oshkosh. The semester that I have been waiting and preparing for over the last three and a half years suddenly comes to a halt and now everything is virtual. I am an elementary educati...

This pandemic has caused myself and many others a sad, unexpected ending to their college careers in academics and athletics. Although I am grateful to be healthy at this point and know it is very unfortunate that others are suffering in many ways health-wise during this time, many people like myself...

‘Extraction’ has thrilling action but no story

Nolan Fullington, Columnist

April 29, 2020

“Extraction” would normally be a film that everyone glosses over, but due to the lack of theatrical releases, something like “Extraction” is the closest resemblance to a theatrical film at the moment. It is doing fairly well on Netflix, and is largely driven by the creative power of Joe Russo,...

Staying relatively healthy in relatively fun ways during the coronapocalypse

Carter Uslabar/ The Advance-Titan -- During the pandemic, there is no excuse not to take your dog for a walk.

When classes got canceled and UWO students were given a two-week spring break, I honestly did not take social distancing as seriously as I should have. At that point, I was still planning on taking my spring break trip and seeing my friends. But before the actual trip was to begin, my friends and...

Bitter Coffee with spoiled Kareem

Nolan Fullington, Columnist

April 15, 2020

“Coffee & Kareem” is the latest comedy film from Netflix. Its linchpin aspect is Ed Helms, who I’ve rarely found funny, he usually comes off as blunderous and annoying in most of his films or television shows. It just so happens that he plays a similar type of character in this new film directed...
