Fall break a chance to catch up with those left at home

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Dear Editor, Fall is in the air, and one thought seems to be on everyone’s minds: long weekend. People are getting antsy thinking about an extra day off of school, but there’s something more important to remember right now. This is a time to reconnect with family and friends back home. So spend some time […]

How to start thinking about studying abroad

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Dear Editor, This afternoon I was able to talk with students on their search for the perfect study abroad experience. There were a few universal questions asked and the answers are important for all. First was the question of, “Where should I go?” Goal setting is really important in making this decision. Think about your […]

Our View: Proper prioritization is crucial to student success

Friday, October 9th, 2015

We cannot do it all. Running from class to class, from work to clubs, from home to the library and back again, we spend our days investing our effort in each facet of life we determine is beneficial to our hearts, mind and soul. Some facets are more important, and thus deserve more investment, than […]

Capitalizing on the college experience

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Dear Editor, By this time of year the academic semester is in full swing. First year students should have a handle on the university work load and expectations. Sophomores and juniors are getting back in to the ebb and flow of college life. Seniors are busily completing graduate and professional school applications as well as […]

A thank you from the presidents

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

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

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

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

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

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 […]

A thank you to The Record

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

I wish to thank the Editorial Board of The Record for the courage and leadership demonstrated in last week’s “Our View” section. They are absolutely right to encourage this community to envision a reality where St. Ben’s is regarded as an equal in every respect to Saint John’s. For more than 100 years, St. Ben’s […]

Our View

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Do you know who we are? You probably think you do. We’re the student newspaper. But beyond that constraint, we fit few of people’s stereotypes. For one, we’re not all studying English and communication. You don’t need to have a certain major or minor to write or edit. Most of us aren’t even aspiring journalists. […]
