The Haunted Bell Tower

The Haunted Bell Tower

The Bell Tower has been “haunted” ever since I got to Notre Dame College. Well, legend has it that it’s been haunted for much longer. Really almost every college campus has some story about a haunting, including John Carroll University and Lake Erie College. I always wondered if these sorts of stories were just kind […]

Black and Blue, or White and Gold

Black and Blue, or White and Gold

This dress has been on my news feed for days now. There have been arguments on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about whether the dress is blue with black fringe or white with gold fringe. I see blue and black but when I sent the photo to my mom asking what color it was, she responded saying “What a cute […]

Smells Like Too Much Team Spirit

Smells Like Too Much Team Spirit

Don’t we love our sweats?! They’re so comfortable and easy to throw on. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t see students on the Notre Dame College campus wearing sweats to class. But let’s get real, there are sweats for working out, and then there are sweats that we all wear […]

A Very Different “Night Class” On Campus

In the 1980s, a student going to Night Class at Notre Dame College was doing something completely different than a student at night […]

What Makes a Dope Sneaker

What Makes a Dope Sneaker

What makes a dope sneaker? That is a question that I am constantly asking myself. Is it the fact that they are cosigned (worn) by athletes, like Lebron, Kobe or Jordan? Or is it the fact that most dope sneakers are cosigned by the likes of musicians, such as Pharrell Williams or Kanye West? By […]

Great Meals Start with a Sauce

Great Meals Start with a Sauce

Food is at the center of our everyday lives – from the fulfilling pleasures of a buttered mountain of mashed potatoes to the crunch of blanched broccoli and the savory goodness of a well-seasoned steak. It’s what keeps our bodies functioning on a daily basis. However, with busy schedules, classes and obligations, it is understandable […]

My Split Personality Jack Russell Terrier

My Split Personality Jack Russell Terrier

Louie is a 4 pound Jack Russell Terrier that I am entirely convinced has split personality disorder. I bought him Thanksgiving weekend while I was in Dayton, Ohio. He was an impulse buy. Yes, I know, what kind of person buys a puppy on impulse? Well, I do. In my defense, Louie tricked me. When […]

Try Black Friday with Coffee, Bagel on the Side

Try Black Friday with Coffee, Bagel on the Side

Black Friday originally got its name from retail accounting records. These records used to be written out by hand. Records that were written in red ink indicated a loss in the company, while black ink indicated a profit. Recorders usually switched from red ink to black ink the day after Thanksgiving, hence inheriting the name […]
