That's what See said: The spoils of my very busy week

This past weekend I was really busy. The rest of last week: ditto. What I’m trying to say is that I didn’t come up with an awesome and entertaining column topic for this week. Don’t fret though my wonderful nation of loyal readers (I bet you guys didn’t know I made you your own country…

That's what See said: Introducing the masculine mystique

In honor of women’s history month, I think it’s an appropriate time to talk about sexism. It’s been a problem for a long time in America, but now, in 2010, it’s really starting to get out of control. Women are being shown too much favoritism, and it needs to stop. I figured that society had…

Lost and found?

Miscommunication hinders investigation into stolen property.

That's what See said: Staying safe while on the Internet

I’ve got a responsibility to the readers of the award-winning Carroll News to inform them of things that I think they need to know about. As a journalist, I wouldn’t be doing my unpaid job if I didn’t tell you things you didn’t know. That being said, I have some troubling news. The Internet is…

The CN’s exclusive interview with Seth Meyers

'SNL' head writer Seth Meyers was at JCU last week, two members of The CN sat down with him to discuss staying up to date on the news, Weekend Update and just how funny Amy Poehler really is.

That's what See said: Ballin’ on a budget (the go broke remix)

This isn’t the Business Corner, but I am going to talk about financial stuff this week. For those of you who have been following me since the beginning of my CN career, you might remember that about two years ago I wrote a column titled “Ballin’ on a Budget (BOB)” in which I gave advice…

That's what See said: Better late than never … right?

I'm sure I'll think of something better to write about as soon as this gets sent to the printer.

Don’t let V-day become D-day

Against Editor in Chief Katie Sheridan’s better judgement, we’re back. With this Sunday being Valentine’s Day, we thought it was time to once again kick some knowledge into your heads. For those of you spending your first V-Day with your significant other, we’ve got some words of wisdom. Need to know what to say or…

That's what See said: You didn’t ask, but I’m gonna tell you

I love it when The Carroll News does a story on power couples, but this year they forgot one: me and Jeff Sigmund.

That's what See said: Forget the leader, follow the Tweeter

It’s 2010, and if you haven’t jumped on the Twitter bandwagon yet, you’re missing out on a ton of fun. You probably still use a rotary phone, get your film developed, and update your MySpace page. Honestly, if you’re not on Twitter yet, then what have you been doing all this time? I don’t have…

That's what See said: Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground

I don’t know exactly what happened to the world since the end of last semester, but it seems everyone lost their moral compass and decided it would be cool to walk around with their pants around their ankles. From television, to professional sports, to those who don’t have belts, nobody was safe from being caught…

That's what See said: The secrets of being a good Secret Santa

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Classes are almost over, snow is starting to fall, and Max Flessner and Rachel Szuch are graduating (I mean that in a good way guys, I swear). The best part about the Christmas season, or “holiday season” for the more politically correct out there, is that Santa…

That's what See said: What goes around comes around

When I have to make a decision I always ask myself one question before anything else: is this going to give me bad karma? If there is something to fear besides fear itself, it would be bad karma. It’s like revenge sought out by God. For you atheists out there, it’s like getting vengeance on…

That's what See said: Don’t wake the sleeping giant

There’s a legend at John Carroll. He roams among us, and whether he’s conscious or not, he should be appreciated. He is the notorious napper (or Rob C. as I’ll be referring to him for the rest of this column), and he serves the JCU community in many ways I’m sure you never recognized. In…

That's what See said: It’s like Christmas in October

Halloween is this weekend, and I feel that it’s my duty as a CN columnist to touch on the topic because, if I don’t, then how are we ever going to get some of you to write letters to the editor? Halloween is my favorite holiday to experience on campus. It’s got some stiff competition…

That's what See said: Let me take you to flight school

There are three essentials for a guy before he goes out: clean underwear, an Ace bandage and a wingman. Clean underwear is the most obvious, the Ace bandage is the most open-ended, but the wingman is the most important of the three. It’s a man’s best friend when trying to get to know young ladies.…

Guys, smooth or not, don’t say this

Commentary In light of our Homecoming experiences, we decided that the John Carroll male community should be educated on what not to say to members of the opposite sex. In college, we find ourselves in situations that can result in a successful social night, or a complete failure. More often than not, it ends in…

That's what See said: Breaking my silence on awkward silences

Usually, when it comes to this topic I just sit there and wait for it to be over with (and yes, that’s what she said), but I’ve decided that I can’t ignore it anymore. It’s time to address it publicly. Awkward silences are a sickness, and they plague communities such as JCU. With a student…

Get to know… Commie Lee Pouncy

Some people are early risers. They take advantage of the early morning Corbo hours, breakfast in the Schott, or, if you’re in ROTC, learning about military preparedness. But these go-getters have to keep in mind how their Student Center stays in such great condition, even before they get to school. That’s when Commie Lee Pouncy…

That's what See said: Help me win, write me in

October is here and that means election season is kicking into high gear. Usually I’m politically apathetic, but this year I’ve decided to exercise my American right to represent my fellow citizens and throw my name into the ring for the 2009 mayoral election in University Heights. Since I’m not hip to the whole process…

That's what See said: I want my MTV back

I grew up on MTV. I give it more credit for forming me than I give my parents, peers or schools. But the MTV I knew is gone.

That's what See said: Sorry, but no more Mr. Nice Guy

Don’t let my picture fool you, it’s not all smiles around here. I’m fed up, John Carroll. Quite frankly, people refuse to get on my level and it ruffles my feathers. Cleaning up other peoples’ messes is not on any of my four daily to-do lists. JCU is in need of reform and I’ve appointed…

Jay-Z still at the top

On Sept. 11, 2009, Americans across the country remembered what happened on that same day in 2001, including Jay-Z. Eight years after the release of his critically-acclaimed album “The Blueprint,” Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter released his latest piece of work, “The Blueprint 3.”  The album features collaborations from Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Pharrell, Young Jeezy,…

That's what See said: Starting the year off with a few pick-me-ups

There’s a lot to talk about at the beginning of a new semester. For example, I could list my goals for the next four months (stay alive, win awards, etc.) or tell you about my summer (I bought a new watch), but I’m going to take the easy route and address the newbies at JCU.  …

That's what See said: Why I’m the poet laureate of John Carroll University

For those of you who haven’t read my column before: I’m kind of a big deal. As the veteran columnist for the award-winning Carroll News (and I’m still a few finals away from junior status), I have quite a bit of literary clout. Taking this into account, I decided I could help another JCU publication, The Carroll Review, by contributing my name and fame.
