The Highs and Lows of Legalization
Twenty states have made the move to legalize medicinal marijuana, and Ohio is considering whether it will follow suit.
In an interview with The Marietta Times, Ohio resident Nathan Gundlach said marijuana prohibition has caused more problems than it has solved, leading to a black market economy, excessive incarceration and infringements on individual liberties.
“To me, the important issue is that we have the right to choose what we put in our bodies,” Gundlach said.
Concealed Carry: Will Cedarville Pull the Trigger?
Cedarville’s administration is still considering changes to its firearms policy, but little progress has been made in the past 10 months.
In April 2013, campus safety director Douglas Chisholm told Cedars in an interview that Liberty University’s recent changes to its firearms policy inspired Cedarville to look into similar changes.

Style Blog Not Just About Clothes
It took six Cedarville students just one weekend last November to launch a style blog that’s now attracted readers from several states.
Cedarville students Beth Julca and Jennifer Langton had the idea to highlight people with interesting style around campus in some sort of online media. Langton, a junior, said she and Julca, who graduated in December, shared their idea with four other students. And when the weekend was over, the group of six had created and published “The Village.”
Jay Migrino: Graffiti Artist

His professor, Isaac Mayeux, used the course to emphasize Christianity’s alignment with the arts, and when Ryken’s words about excellence leapt off the page, it changed Migrino’s entire perspective on how to “do” art.
“I didn’t know how to integrate my faith with my art,” Migrino said. “I ...

Is Grad School Worth It?
As 2003 Cedarville graduate Mike Kibbe discovered, one is never too old to listen to Dad.
Immediately after graduating from Cedarville, Kibbe, a Bible major, enrolled in Dallas Theological Seminary to earn a 4-5 year Master of Theology degree. He dropped out two years into the program.
“My dad told me it was a dumb idea to go right into grad school, and I didn’t listen,” Kibbe says, laughing. “He was right.”
Kibbe says he went to graduate school because he wasn’t sure what ...
