Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and that sweet, sweet pumpkin pie mark a special time of the year — Thanksgiving. What was once remembered as the days we pretended to help out in the kitchen by dumping different ingredients in the bowl, we now experience in a whole new light. College...

The big red truck rolls into Ashland every Tuesday, coming from Strongsville to deliver Chick-fil-A to awaiting customers once a week. It brings delicious chicken nuggets and sweet lemonade to the college town, and there is often a large gathering around the truck. People are waiting, some even wishing...

College is a time in our lives where we barely get any sleep, are constantly going to classes, and as you probably know, do not have much money. In other words, us college kids are broke.

Ashland University seems to be notorious for having a lot of jobs open for students all-year-round. This being said, I have noticed many differences this year in regards to those jobs.

Recently we have been blessed with beautiful, fall-like, mid-70s weather in Ashland and in Ohio in general.
