Students fighting racial injustice exclaim “We Are One”

About a year ago, Preeti Yonjon, a grad student at St. Cloud State University, lackadaisically scrolled through her Facebook feed. It was then that she found an event created by a local hate group. She joined and found a series of posts containing racial slurs directed at St. Cloud’s Somali community. What happened after is […]

A Johnnie-Tommie to Remember

Though ESPN has left campus there is still an electricity in the air as students and staff return to their regular schedules.

More than just getting coffee and running errands

When the academic year ends, many students close their backpacks for summer break, yet still continue learning through different internships around the country, and sometimes even worldwide. Through internships, students are able to get a taste of a potential real-world career and expand their knowledge and skills. Internships are acquired in different ways; some students […]

Sister, Sister

Picking dandelions with siblings is a common occurrence in the summer months of many people’s youth.

Jenna and Jaclyn Bautch, Rachel and Tara Paulsen and Emma and Sophie Woods made up over half of […]

‘Black Mass:’ Strong cast, disjointed plot

Bloodied bodies are left strewn across the streets of Boston, a spree of carnage captured in director Scott Cooper’s “Black Mass.” Cooper’s crime/biopic catalogues James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp)’s rise and fall as an Irish mobster in 1970s South Boston. Ruthlessness and violence pave the way for the gangster’s rise in the criminal underworld and […]


Remembering banned books week

During this Banned Books Week, many people have raised the question of whether or not we even need to celebrate it. After all, surely censorship and banning books is a thing of the past? It seems not. The American Library Association released their list of “Frequently Challenged or Banned Young Adult Fiction” for the year, […]

The trouble with the top Republican party candidates

Why do we continue to support politicians who have no experience in the field? Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and most notably Donald Trump are all running for the Republican nomination and are all polling in the top five. Qualified candidates like Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and John Kasich continue to poll behind the three aforementioned […]

Dealing with party culture

Party culture. It’s something that is present on college campuses everywhere. The media presents it as a rite of passage into collegiate life. But is that true?

How we are Sustainable


A thank you from the presidents

Thank you for your great enthusiasm and energy this past weekend during ESPN’s time on campus, as well as for the Johnnie-Tommie football game. With national television exposure and a record-breaking crowd at the game, the entire community was provided both a huge challenge and a grand opportunity. Suffice it to say, you rose to […]

Loss of break time a frustrating reality

As our fall break approaches many returning students are wondering where our extra day wandered off to. Instead of a four-day weekend including Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday with classes resuming on Wednesday, this year we only get three days and classes resume on Tuesday. Some of you may not see this as an issue […]

Our View: shrinking our carbon footprint on game days

Long after the last football fans left the St. John’s campus last Saturday, evidence of the game still remained. An empty vodka bottle, among others, sat abandoned near the outskirts of the student section. Crushed pop cans littered the grass outside Clemens Stadium. Paper plates and cups were left behind when their owners hastily exited […]
