How Coffee Revolutionizes the College Experience
By Anna Harman
If you’re a Cedarville student, it’s probably no surprise to you that coffee is an important part of the experience here on campus. Some of us need it to get through morning classes, exams, study sessions, or maybe even just so we can stay up past 4 pm. Many students meet with friends, mentors, or professors over coffee.
What makes it so appealing for college students though?

“Rings of Power” Raises the Stakes before the Season Finale
By Janie Walenda
After the intense highs of last week’s episode, “Rings of Power” episode seven settled down while still moving the plot forward. This was how I would like most episodes of “Rings of Power” to be – I didn’t need 45 minutes of action, but I did like seeing the plot moving forward.
The aftermath of Mordor's creation was shot in a beautifully haunting way. I loved how “Rings of Power” didn’t hold back in its portrayal of war ...
China’s increased aggressiveness pushes Taiwan away and prompts strong but confusing response from US
By Michael Cleverly
In recent years, the US and other countries raised concerns over China invading Taiwan. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s reaction to Nancy Pelosi’s visit heightened these concerns.
Concerns rose because China’s rhetoric grew stronger than normal and their military response was larger than previous visits. One reason China is comfortable projecting its position is because their military is stronger than before. Another reason is because Nancy Pelosi’s ...
‘Smile’ Feels Like a Fever Dream
By Ben Konuch
“It’s… it’s like it wears people’s faces as masks.”
(“Smile” contains themes and depictions of trauma and suicide. Viewer and reader discretion is advised.)
At a first glance, it would be very easy to pass by “Smile” without much thought. From all of its marketing, the film comes off as one of those “gimmick horror” movies. Movies like ‘Wish Upon’ or ‘Truth or Dare’ capitalize off a concept or object that typically isn't scary, like a ...

UN Report on Xinjiang Internment Marks a Symbolic Step Towards Action
By Spencer Benefiel
After four years of silence, the UN has condemned China’s treatment of Uyghurs in the Xinjiang province, saying the internment camps there are home to “Serious human rights violations” in an assessment released on August 31 by the UN Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
The report confirmed countless abuses and listed types of rights that these camps strip away from their unwilling residents, including religious, cultural, linguistic, ...

We’ve all seen or followed one of the numerous meme pages that have been created by Cedarville students. Countless memes have been made about chapel, student stereotypes and campus-wide jokes. Memes are so well appreciated among students that most of us can predict when a meme will be made while we’re sitting in Chapel. What causes students to create these pages? Who are these masters of comedy?
The Cedarville meme ...

“Abbott Elementary” Teaches a Class on Comedy
By Katlynn Rossignol
When you walk through the halls of Abbott Elementary School, expect to find flickering lights, terrible school food, low budgets, and most importantly, quirky and hardworking teachers. “Abbott Elementary” offers a hilarious view of the public school system from the eyes of its teachers, as they fight to provide the best education for their students. With the show’s second season starting to release, it’s a good time to look back and review what we learned from ...
‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Episode 7 Develops Jen But Nothing Else
By Samuel M Acosta
There are some positives and some negatives to this episode for me. While we get to see some fun new characters and development for Jen’s self-confidence and character, there is still barely any substance in terms of the overarching plot. Some jokes are overused and feel a little forced, but this is still a better episode than the past few.
Episode 7 follows Jen as she assists Blonsky’s probation officer to check out why the inhibitor has turned off. ...
