Advising time again
Advising had begun, and it is time to start thinking about next semester. For some, it might be our last semester, and for others it could be the beginning of our college career. Advising is important because it gives us insight into which courses we have to take, but it also allows us to know how much time left we have before graduation.
Restaurant Review: Mathis Field Café
Airport Chinese is what my friend first called it. I must have had a confused look on my face, like the one on your pet dog’s when you put on a Halloween mask and talk to him in strange voices, because she quickly said, “You didn’t know there was a restaurant at the airport?” Well, the only time I had ever been to the airport was a couple of years ago, and I had wandered aimlessly in and out of security check points, unable to find anyone and feeling like zombies were going to burst from the terminals at any minute, so no.
Philosophy and God discussion
The Philosophy Club has asked ASU students through a poll on Ramport about which philosophical topic they would like to hear Dr. Susana Badiola and Dr. John Glassford debate. As president of the club, I am pleased to announce that our philosophy professors will be discussing “Philosophy and God” on March 21 at 2:00 pm in Rassman room 105.
Restaurant Review: Campus Donuts & Kolaches
Before we get started, let me just clarify that I am reviewing the Campus Donuts & Kolaches at 2219 W Ave. N. Now that we have that out of the way, I know where I’ll be getting my donut and kolache fix from now on. You see, I have a place near and dear to my heart back home, but once or twice a month just is not enough kolache for me.
Winter Olympics excitement comes to an end
Every four years, during the winter season, the world changes. The Olympic Games are held in a select country and athletes from around the world compete against each other for 17 days to see who the best is. I look forward to this worldwide event not only because I am a personal fan of winter sports, but also because I love seeing such comradery among the young people of the world.
Restaurant Review: Aunt Maggie’s Kitchen
I once spoke of a man here in San Angelo whose cooking reminded me of my dad’s. If Kenny Blanek’s reminded me of my dad’s home cooking, then Aunt Maggie’s reminds me of my grandmother’s. The first time I went to this establishment was last summer with a co-worker of mine.
Student Loan profits: Where are they really going?
Student loans are making headlines once again, and this time the news is only getting worse. According to USA Today, student loans are continuing to give profits to the federal government. In 2013 alone, the profits reached $41.3 billion. Loans are the impending doom that all students, and all parents, dread when they think about college.
Restaurant Review: Three Parrots Taco Shop
Three Parrots Taco Shop is not quite what I expected. I walked in thinking I would be surrounded by the typical sombrero and donkey decorations, but instead was greeted by a freaky tiki statuette. The place was decorated from floor to ceiling in vibrant island decor.
Valentine’s Day can beneifical to all types of people
It’s that time of the year again when Walmart is full of hearts, plush toys and candy. The television commercials all talk about buying your special someone a diamond necklace or a new tool set to show him or her how much you care. But, does that really show your true feelings? Your single friends are probably a bit bitter and being downers, but they have their reasons.
Restaurant Review: Double Dave’s Pizzaworks
When I first decided to start typing up these restaurant reviews this semester, I wanted to try to keep it focused on “little, hometown places.” However, there is one restaurant that holds a special place in my tummy despite being a national chain. It never ceases to amaze me how people do not know about Double Dave’s Pizzaworks located at 3536 Knickerbocker Road.
