Here at ACU there are 10 classes every student is required to take in order to graduate that they cannot be exempted from. Four of these classes consist of BIBL 101 Jesus: His Life and Teachings, BIBL 102 Life, Literature, and Community, BIBL 211 Message of the Old Testament and finally an advanced bible, which […]

‘Chicken parm you taste so good’

Choosing a college is hard because they are a lot of factors to consider. Majors, the size of the campus, proximity to home, cost of tuition and several other determinants, but I never really considered the food served on campus. Now looking back, I realize my decision would have been easier if I had tasted […]

The National Basketball Association’s fan voting for the All-Star game is broken. The once gleaming idea that fans could vote their favorite players in as starters has been reduced to a system that robs deserving players of an opportunity to gain national recognition for their achievements. On paper, the idea seems great. Fans get to […]

Why is it that many toss anime off to the side, calling it “childish” or say “it’s just a cartoon”, when many anime shows deal with heavy issues, such as mental illness and suicide? These shows portray these topics in a realistic sense, not like  many shows in america that toss it off to the […]

“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 […]

Social media and the Internet have taken the celebration of Black history to a new level. After the Black Lives Matter movement, members of the black community have expressed discontent with how people handle race-related conversation and feel that issues are properly recognized or taken seriously. But different media outlets have redeemed itself with the […]

One of the most unsettling commercials in this year’s Super Bowl was the “No More” domestic violence ad. The ad was simple, with no music, displaying only text messages on an iPhone screen. One girl texts her friend and invites her to a Super Bowl party. The friend says she can’t go out because “Jake is […]

The NFL is cracking down on the safety of the players, but what are they doing for the safety of the people? Fans can argue all they want about how the game is being ruined by the referees, or how the league is rigged, but at the end of the day the league’s biggest problem […]

Sing song is just a week away, and people are going to get overly competitive as usual. We all seem to get a little edgy because of the lack of sleep and inter-club/inter-class rivalry. Most people are guilty of getting too into the annual event, and if they say they don’t, then they’re lying. Although […]

Cam Newton walked out of his Super Bowl post game press conference. No matter what the reasons were, he walked out. Twenty four hours before, he had been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player and regarded as the face of the league. For him to achieve so much in one season and then to conduct himself […]

Why we should take advantage of the cultural awareness requirement?

Why should we care about other cultures? Simple, we live in a diverse world. We can’t run away from culture. ACU alone has over 50 nations represented on campus. Undergraduates are required to take either six hours of a foreign language or cultural awareness classes. This is a smart course to take advantage of, yet […]

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 […]
