Yellow Jackets fall short in tough battle, drop match 3-2

By Julia Swain As the ball hit the floor with a resounding thud, a collective groan rang through the gymnasium, with the visiting Ohio Dominican Wildcats storming the court following a tightly contested 3-2 win.  Despite this, the Cedarville Yellow Jackets walked off the court with determination as a result of the gutsy performance that was put on, falling just short of the victory.  The Yellow Jackets dropped the first set 25-14. Head coach Greg Smith found this to be one ...

Brads Breakdown: Longhorns, and Sooners and Jayhawks, oh my!

By: Alan Brads What do birthday parties and September have in common? Once they’re over the cupcakes are gone.  Technically this Saturday falls on September 30th, but the leaves are turning orange and my neighbors have pumpkin decor on their front door, so I feel justified considering this Saturday to be the 0th of October. That’s right, conference season hits its stride in week five and we get watchable games in bunches every weekend. No more powerhouses facing Midwestern ...

The End of Affirmative Action

By: Maggie Fipps Applying to college feels deeply personal. You’re made up of academic statistics, athletic accomplishments, random hobbies, cultural heritage, and so many other small details.  In the college application process, you attempt to fold your three-dimensional person into a flat profile, easily mailable alongside your glossy transcripts and personal essay that attempts to pique the interest of your chosen university. Like an eager teenager on a first date, you hope all of ...

HBO’s New Superman Show is a Lively Adaptation of the Beloved Character (Spoiler Free)

By Ashleigh Clark It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s another adaptation of Superman! I’m guessing very few people were as excited about this new Superman show as I was. There have been many Superman animated series. Perhaps some fans may groan at the idea of a new one. However, "My Adventures with Superman" has the opportunity to become a beloved classic for this generation of Superman fans.  “My Adventures with Superman” centers around Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Jimmy ...

The first choice is not always the best choice: Samuel Fish

By Marielle Payton As a freshman, Samuel Fish was excited about getting hands-on with different creative projects and designs. Now, he’s still pursuing that passion–just a little differently.  Fish started college as a Mechanical Engineering major, certain he’d be a great fit for the program. Now, he is a junior Industrial Design major studying at the International Center for Creativity (ICC) in Columbus, Ohio. Though he could have never predicted the path his journey took, he ...

Cedarville University students grow and serve others at summer camps

By Esther Fultz For many Cedarville University students, going to camp was an integral part of our childhood summers. New friendships, an opportunity to disconnect from technology and responsibilities at home, full days packed with adventure and activities, and pure excitement and chaos are just some of the things that make camp appealing. These things also make camp a great avenue for sharing the hope of Christ with youth who may never have heard of Him and helping those who are already ...

Finding your people: Bryn Golson

By Avonlea Brown Hidden immigrant.  On the outside, they look ordinary, but on the inside, they feel detached. They float from group to group and try to find a place where they belong but never truly find it.  Bryn Golson used those words to describe her experience as a child of missionaries.  When she was ten years old, Golson’s family packed their things, sold their house and moved to Knysna, South Africa.  “My parents were so excited and that perspec...

Did You Know? Greene County Bus System Serves Cedarville University

By Marielle Payton One of the worst feelings for a college student is knowing where you want to go but having no way of getting there. Spontaneous late-night Walmart runs. Trips to Urgent Care. Going to a church far away. Texting friends to ask them for rides and hoping someone’s free. For many students who do not have cars on campus, looking for transportation is a familiar struggle. “As a freshman and sophomore I had no transportation and had few friends who had cars, so I ...

Brads Breakdown: Buckle your seatbelts and start your engines

By Alan Brads I like to open with a clever anecdote, something to draw you in, but I’ll resist the urge this week, not because I don’t want to, but because I have to embrace some degree of realism. Nothing, absolutely no introduction I could give, could possibly be even 10% as interesting as the college football matchups going down this weekend. So why even try? Let’s talk football. Without further ado, three storylines and five, (that’s right, I couldn’t settle for just ...
