The Ashland University baseball team completed a rare feat last week when the men played and won three games in a single day. Tiffin traveled to Ashland for a double header last Thursday but first finished a game that was suspended back on March 30. After the three-game Thursday, Wayne State was sched...

The Secret Menu: The Powda

By Nick Zavarella

April 27, 2011

Here it is. My final Secret Menu. I have to say this is kind of bittersweet. It started off as a good idea but I can't lie, it just became work after a while. I have no idea how many calories I ate or the damage I did to my health, but it was fun. Since I have to finish strong, I decided to go out wi...

By Nick Zavarella

April 20, 2011

The Persian is named after its creator, Cyrus Massoudi. The 17th edition of The Secret Menu is a collaboration of Massoudi's ideas and my cutting abilities. The dinner Convo was serving also had something to do with it considering I walked in with the intent to knock out a winner no matter what. Con...

Vocabulary, 20 points, count it

Considering it's 2011 and most of us feel naked unless we have our phones on us, I don't think it's a stretch to believe that most of the smart phone world has heard of the game Angry Birds. When that game first came out, I didn't even talk to friends. I would find myself exploding little bird bombs ...

By the time this column is read, the Cleveland Indians will have completed their series against the Kansas City Royals. I can't predict how the Indians have fared but I'm guessing pretty well. Before the Royals series, the Indians were all alone in first place in the American League Central, two games ...

The Secret Menu: The Combo Cream

By Nick Zavarella

April 13, 2011

For this edition of The Secret Menu, I chose the place just about every student living on campus goes. After stuffing your face with the mediocre Convo food, many students turn to the dessert area. Sorry, you might know it better as "fat bar." The main problem I have with the desserts here at AU is the ...

You have probably heard the song, "I Love College" by Asher Roth or seen the movie, "Old School." (You're my boy, Blue!). Well, I'm here to happily say, I have lived that life. You might have also seen the movie, "Legally Blonde." Well, I'm happy to say that I have lived that life as well. No, not the...

   The Troop Center is located at Jack Miller Stadium, which surrounds the Fred Martinelli Field at the Dwight Schar Athletic Complex. Are you kidding me? Does the fact that Ashland University is a private, non-profit university, grant me the right to have anything I want named after me if I give enough mo...
