Giving Thanks to those who Sacrifice

Giving Thanks to those who Sacrifice

Postcards to Soldiers By: Kelsey Velandria   Every day that goes by is another day that hundreds of soldiers have to spend separated from their family, friends, and loved ones.  These soldiers choose to sacrifice their lives every day in order to defend their nation, and allow us to have normal lives.

#firstworldproblems

By Corley Tweedy    I honestly cannot believe that it is already time for Thanksgiving; where has this semester gone? The older I become, the more I see time truly fly by. It’s funny: in the moment, the days and weeks seem to drag by, but when I look back, it is unreal to me [...]


Making a BIG difference for youth

Making a BIG difference for youth

By Abigail Blair  When you were just a little kid, who was it that you looked up to? Maybe it was an older sibling or a grandparent, or even a family friend of some sort. Consider how your life would have been different had you not had someone to look up to. For those of [...]


The time for questions…

Critical Encounters   By: Bernardo H. Motta   Walking in the rain, stepping in water puddles, I see question marks form under my feet. “What are you doing here?” the voice of Dean Carol Scheppard’s question during this year’s opening ceremony echoes in my head. Her voice is not the only one haunting me as [...]

Overheard on Campus

Professor: Spring Break on the horizon, I know you’re all angry to be here to the bitter end Professor: You’re turning 21, just remember you have your entire life to do stupid things Guy: You don’t go into labor any more, you go into mild discomfort Guy: Africa has no books Tweet

El jefe speaks: A word about change

By President George Cornelius Much has been written and discussed about change recently. Over the past two years I’ve discussed change in the context of the College, its strategic plan and external forces that are impacting higher education today. I have nothing new to say about that subject presently. But before moving on at the [...]


Private Choices

Private Choices

By Cassandra Brown Cassandra, I’d be happy to meet with you, on the condition you not ask why I decided to leave. It’s a personal and private matter, and that’s how I prefer to keep it. I’d be pleased to discuss anything else. George This was the e-mail I received from Bridgewater College President George Cornelius [...]


BC Eagles land short

BC Eagles land short

By Jason Manago-Graves    The Eagles took on the Eastern Mennonite Royals in the opening round of the ODAC (Old Dominion Athletic Conference) tournament on Tuesday, February 21. It was a hard fought game on both ends. After the Eagles won the last game both of these teams faced off with a walk-off 3-pointer by [...]


Hoping to go the distance

By Holly Fox    Things are quiet on the track now, but within the next few weeks it will be occupied by the talented men and women of the Bridgewater College track and field teams. Whether a sprinter, a distance runner, a pole vaulter, a hurdler, or a thrower doesn’t matter; the bug of excitement [...]

Combat against contraceptives

Combat against contraceptives

By Kelsey Byard    Abortion has been a hot-button issue for politicians since the 1973 decision of the Supreme Court in “Roe v. Wade,” which legalized abortion in certain trimesters of a woman’s pregnancy.  It seems today that politicians have taken one more giant step into the realm of privacy, arguing over what a woman [...]


Just like family: Bridgewater Retirement Community

Just like family: Bridgewater Retirement Community

By Ali Morris    Believe it or not the idea of the Bridgewater Retirement Community (BRC) came from the dedication to the college’s gymnasium. Dr. Jacob Huffman, also known as the father of the Bridgewater home, thought that since the students have a gym, that the elderly should have a home, and that is where [...]


Black History Month is Racist

 By Danielle Norris    Now that I have your attention, let me explain further. The idea of studying black history and culture is wonderful; condensing it to a month is painfully poor execution.    I recently saw a YouTube video in which Brigham Young University’s students struggled to name black historical figures other than Martin [...]
