By Amirah Mikell
October 20, 2014 - 12:00am

Since we were children, we’ve been celebrating the spirit of Halloween by dressing up in scary costumes, walking from house to house, collecting various assortments of candy and chanting the famously known phrase “Trick or Treat!” But can any of us recall the true reason as to why we celebrate this day? Growing up I always believed that October 31 was a day for children to have fun and dress up, but there’s more to this day than just wearing a spooky costume. According to, Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). READ MORE

Imagine, it was a great weekend. You went to a couple parties, you had fun with your friends, and now it is Monday morning at Millersville University and you do not want to get out of bed. You check your email hoping to see a message saying that class was cancelled. Instead, you see another timely warning about a girl you know getting raped at a fraternity party. READ MORE

By Amirah Mikell
October 6, 2014 - 12:00am

With mid-terms coming up in less than two weeks, it is important to learn how to be a well-rounded student.  Class assignments, organization meetings and important campus events can sometimes keep you away from completing personal tasks. Returning family phone calls, updating social media statues and even getting a good night’s sleep can go undone, especially if you’re having a hectic week. Although school is and should be your first priority, it is also essential to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually. With these helpful tips, you can be on your way to a “stress-free” lifestyle before the end of the semester!   1. “Me, myself & I” READ MORE

6 Unique Fall Layering Ideas

By Alexandra Blessing
September 8, 2014 - 12:00pm

My latest fall fashion obsession consists of layers, many, many layers. It’s so perfect because you can be dressed comfortably for chilly mornings, take off a layer in the warm afternoons, and add a layer when the temperatures drop at nighttime. If you run on a tight schedule like me, then it’s rare that you will ever have the time to run back to your apartment and change when psych lab ends at 3 p.m. and you have to be in at work by 3:30.
