Friends and family, neighbors and strangers, and people from all around the world have been personally affected by something so great that I feel it would be inconsiderate to not address it. I’m talking, of course, about the changes that have recently...

September 27, 2011

Filed under Opinion

With the passing of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, it is safe to say that most of the people of my generation have witnessed the destruction of the World Trade Center; however, it is also safe that a majority of my age group have not heard of the event that first shook the World Trade Center: the truck bomb that exploded underneath...

Filed under Opinion

As I struggled to get through the first issues of The Crusader, I realized that I never really thought about all the work that goes in to getting a project done.

Filed under Features, Opinion

When I think back about the September 11th attacks, I can recall with incredible clarity the way the day unfolded — exactly where I was when I first heard about it, and the reactions of not only myself, but of those around me.

Parking drives lots of chaos

September 13, 2011

Filed under Features, Opinion

Class starts in minutes, your eyes scan the parking lot for a vacant space; however, you see none in sight. You go towards the next parking lot—no space there either. Now what? You call your friend; panicking, saying, there is absolutely NO place to park. Your friend asks if all spots by the academic building are taken, “Yes,”...

In ______ we trust? Platform wording red flag for foundation

September 11, 2011

Filed under Opinion

Last week, in an alarming move, Democrats removed the word God from their party's platform. Then, being the politicians that they are, promptly backtracked and put God right back into their party's platform.
