The discussion was hosted by the Student Legal Society and had three panel speakers who expounded on how Christians should view the court ruling and what is next in the fight ...
A Personal Take on Halloween
By Chris Karenbauer
Halloween is the one time of year when kids and adults dress up in fun costumes and wander their neighborhoods asking strangers for free candy, and society will not judge them too harshly for it.
Halloween is mostly harmless, except for the small percent of teenagers who find it funny to toilet paper their neighbor’s house. But despite its appearance to target children in marketing, Halloween has dark origins that explore macabre and witchcraft.
Despite its dark ...
Superheroes of the Ville
by Noah Tang
This fall semester, an interesting new trend arose. Students are dressing up as popular superheroes, attending classes or offering their services to the student body at large. The Spider-Force of Cedarville, as they call themselves, has set up a hotline specifically for fellow students to ask for help. They started by posting a Classified ad and then moved to use a phone number that was posted for all to see. In keeping with Spider-Man’s practices, these ...

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?
“My day feels weird or off when I don’t make or get my coffee, it ...

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 ...

21 Years of Student-Led Discipleship Bringing Students Together in Ministry
By Avonlea Brown
Every year in mid-September, tables line the first floor of the Stevens Student Center. Students mill by and glance at the books at the front of the tables. Smiling faces get the attention of as many passing students as they can. They all say the same thing: “Join a discipleship group!”
Some students continue walking, some make a beeline to the tables and grab a book, and others approach tentatively. As group leaders explain their books, students pick up one or ...
