Katie’s Take

[Insert goodbye title here]

After all the deadlines, articles and columns I endured over the last year, I’ve made it to my last issue of The Carroll News. I don’t know what a goodbye column entails, but I am grateful that I’m writing one at all.   Although a lot of people pick up the school paper every week,…

Take care

Besides living off campus, being a junior is not always awesome.   I love delving into my major and minor. But I underestimated how intense 300 and 400-level classes could be. I noticed I’m not the only one, either.   I scroll through Twitter all the time.   And every day, I see several tweets…

Right to my core

I’ve been chopped

  When I wrote my column last week, I mentioned how happy I was I wouldn’t have to depend on the caf for food once I live off campus next year.   This idea by itself could bring any college kid to tears.   Tears of joy.   No more drinks that have unidentifiable floating…

Sophomore slump. Kind of…

Welcome to my very first column.   As the new Arts & Life editor, it is part of my job to come up with a weekly column idea that pertains to either the arts or to life. And as tempting as it is to write a couple hundred words on a painting none of you…
