Is coffee and Jesus all you need?

“All I need is coffee and Jesus.” It’s a popular phrase on mugs, T-shirts and Instagram. It’s a phrase heard often on campus in different forms. “I spend all my Bean Bucks on Starbucks.” “Coffee is life.” But with Lent, a season of sacrifice, right around the corner, we must ask ourselves whether or not […]

Most people are guilty of getting too into the annual event, and if they say they don’t, then they’re lying. Although […]

How Cam Newton blew his post game interview

Cam Newton walked out of his Super Bowl post game press conference. No matter what the reasons were, he walked out.

We should all be like Beyonce

Beyoncé took over the Super Bowl this year by releasing a music video debuting her new single Formation the day before the big event setting a great example of what we should all be doing: advocating for those others. The video features the singer in post-Katrina Louisiana embracing her “Texas-Bama” roots and speaking on empowerment along […]

Attention all coffee addicts

For the past several years, there has been a rise in studies done on caffeine, or the dark and bold, magical drink that college students thrive on… coffee. It is the answer to a late night of studying for a test and the essential for powering through a 10-paged paper that is due the next day. […]
