The Final Goodbye

By Glenn Battishill, Tyler Remmel, Elizabeth Bucheit, Chris Bils, and Melanie Sudar

April 25, 2013

Tyler: So a senior column is like a rite of passage in the college newspaper world, right Glenn? Like, we’re supposed to write about all that sappy jazz, what we’re going to miss most, what we would have done differently and everything like that, right?Glenn: Yeah I think that’s what we are suppo...

Peanut Butter & Jelly Twister

By Tyler Remmel

March 7, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve made a dessert item for the Secret Menu. Since the Pseudo-Sundae last spring, actually. That one was a big one, a real doozie. A dessert-for-supper-tonight kind of doozie. This one, not so much. A lighter fare, the peanut butter and jelly twister is a new take on the...

Secret Menu: Toasted Oatmeal Sandwich

Secret Menu: Toasted Oatmeal Sandwich

By Tyler Remmel

February 21, 2013

Sometimes, I’m better at coming up with ideas for the Secret Menu than I am at other times. This week, I struggled a bit. I walked into Late Night Convo without a clear sense of what I wanted to make. Honestly, I had no idea. I’ve become addicted to oatmeal—the maple brown sugar packets availa...

By Chris Bils

February 21, 2013

It was wet, and it was loud. For the first time since 2007, Ashland hosted the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Swimming and Diving Championships. The meet was held Feb. 6-9 at C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton. The Ashland men finished fourth out of eight teams with a score of 552.5 p...

Secret Menu: Lame Sauce

Secret Menu: Lame Sauce

By Tyler Remmel

February 7, 2013

I’ve always had a clear vision of what I wanted to accomplish with the Secret Menu. To boldly go where no man has gone before.Generally, I try to do this by loading as many greasy things into a single greasy mass. Health is never a worry. I have the rare (but wonderful) trait of possessing a...

Memories of Miller Hall remain two years after its demolition

An architect's sketch of Miller Hall before construction in 1922. The building cost was $80,000

By Tyler Remmel

January 24, 2013

All that remains in its place is a stray gas line, a utilities cover and a memorial. Not so long ago, an entire building stood here. Miller Hall was iconic. In its old age, it was falling apart, but it represented entire eras. More than that, it represented Ashland College—and Ashland University— and...

by Tyler Remmel

November 29, 2012

The AU men’s basketball team came out strong in the first half of the 2012 GLIAC opener against the Grand Valley Lakers Nov. 29, leading by six points, 29-23, at halftime. The Eagles extended that lead to as much as eight in the second half, but couldn’t keep up when the Laker defense stepped up l...

Do you remember?

By Tyler Remmel

November 15, 2012

Do you remember how you felt watching the women’s basketball team last year? Do you remember the 33-game win streak that they strung together? Do you remember watching them win at home in the GLIAC tournament? In the NCAA tournament? Do you remember Jena Stutzman’s shot to send the NCAA Championship...

The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams got off to a fast start with dominant performances against Findlay at home Oct. 12, but they have fallen to tough competition at each of their past three meets. The Eagles have dropped several spots in the Endless Pools Top 25 Poll, with the men falling to ...

Bils Battishill Brawl: Halo 3

Bils Battishill Brawl: Halo 3

By Glenn Battishill

October 18, 2012

Glenn: When I picked “Halo 3” I thought I’d be a little bit fairer than just making Chris face me one-on-one so I told him he could have the rest of The Collegian’s editors to help him out. I have never and will never profess to being amazing at “Halo;” at my best I’m just decent. But I kn...

The Secret Menu: ‘Why don’t you put some mustard on that sandwich, Remmel?’

By Tyler Remmel

October 11, 2012

This week’s secret menu was not a spur-of-the-moment, I’m-hungry kind of decision. No, this item has a backstory. In case you’re wondering (before you get bored with this story), this sandwich is good, not great. It tastes good, but it also takes a lot of work to make. And it’s messy. And it w...
