Biblical Sexuality Explained To Female Students Through “The Talk”

Just Sayin’ — Misadventures of Off-Campus Living

By Alex Hentschel This year, my senior year, I decided to live off campus. Our campus is expanding rapidly and there’s barely enough room, especially for girls — so me and some pals decided to pay the relatively low rent and move to a small blue house somewhere in Cedarville (privacy reasons dictate that I won’t give you my address — email me privately if you want to bring me goodies). We were so excited, but it’s been a definite adventure that made me realize we take several ...
