The panel, moderated by associate journalism professor Dr. Kathleen Wickham, was comprised of a retired university administrator, a former faculty...

I asked myself the other day if I knew what starvation felt like. The slow decay of the body as it eats itself until there is nothing left, the lack of energy and motivation, time slowing down and meaning nothing without food. I thought about if I knew what that felt like. I tried imagining the Oxford Dictionary’s listings of starvation; I used every bit of imagination...

People, this is college – the time allotted to the youth of America to challenge ideals, question traditions and dabble in the occasional radical activism.

Even though experiencing moments of reflection has become clichéd and...

For new college students, moving to Oxford has been quite a big adjustment. Many students here at the University of Mississippi are from big cities with bigger malls, and now here they are in a small town like Oxford with not much selection. While there is plenty to do on campus like lazing in the Grove, partying on Fraternity Row or catching a movie in town, our dear...

  With over 200 locations across the four corners of the United States and every where in between, Pita Pit has found a new home in Oxford. Located on North Lamar Boulevard, right off the square, owner of the new Pita Pit, Jack Brighenti, thought this would be the perfect location to provide healthy eating to both students and the Oxford community. He is the owner...

Summer has the ability to be a very transformative time in a college student’s life.  We get to take a break from school as usual and have the opportunity to do something out of the ordinary for a few months. I would almost venture to say that for me personally, my summers during college have been more influential than the actual semesters.   The summer...

  If your stomach is empty and you need someone to talk to, Dennis Van Oostendorpis is just the man to wain the woe.
