Listen up I have a story to share

By: Brent Raines ~Sports Editor~ If you’re one of the five regular readers of the Newswire, then you know that the Op-Ed section of the last few issues each year gives seniors the opportunity to hand out life advice or whine about how much they’ll miss Xavier. Well, dear reader, I know that you don’t want … Continue reading

God works in overt ways

By: Jonathan S. Hogue ~Outgoing Opinions & Editorials Editor~ A senior editorial is a tough cookie to crack. While I love hearing myself talk, I know not everyone wants to hear one more senior discuss his or her Xavier experience because most (I hope) thank friends, encourage underclassmen to bend the rules once in a while … Continue reading

You can do more than you think you can The benefits of taking on challenges – on purpose

By: Tatum Hunter ~Outgoing Editor-in-Chief~ As a few of my Newswire peers have acknowledged, it’s difficult to write these senior-goodbye editorials without getting painfully nostalgic or dishing out condescending advice to underclassmen. While I’m not one for nostalgia, I am totally one for condescension, so I’ve decided to go with the second option. As a college … Continue reading

Meditations on the Xavier experience

By: Ayana Rowe ~Outgoing Head Copy Editor~ By now we all know the things people say about college: This is your chance to figure out who you want to be for the rest of your life. All you have to do is pick the perfect major, apply yourself in class, meet amazing people and walk across … Continue reading

Thank you to everyone that means anything

By: Jeff Ullery ~Copy Editor~ Jimmy Fallon has the right idea. College is a whirlwind.

At times, it has all blurred together for me and left me breathless, either … Continue reading

Everything will be okay

By: Allison Wisyanski ~Arts & Entertainment Editor~ One thing I want every parting senior and those embarking toward senior year to know is that everything will be ok. Senior year, while it’s fun, is also one of the most stressful years in college. Applying for jobs, preparing for interviews, making killer resumes and writing cover letters … Continue reading

Xavier taught me to balance it all

By: Ray Humienny ~Campus News Editor~ A part of growing up is realizing you’re not a kid anymore – physically, at least. To attest to this, I’ve barred any media that contains the terms “graduation,” “adulthood” or “grace period” from entering my cerebral cortex. As an added precaution, I’ve figuratively buried myself with enough physical and … Continue reading

Thinking about the people we don’t A parting thank you to Physical Plant, Xavier’s unsung heroes

By: Nick Bergeman ~Staff Columnist~ Students certainly do not appreciate the faculty and staff of their university enough, and I am just as guilty as everyone else in that regard. However, let’s look at this for a moment. Professors deserve more thanks and appreciation than many students give them, especially those who go above and beyond … Continue reading

A thank you to the Muskie family Andrew’s play on his Xavier Xperience

By: Andrew Utz ~Distribution Manager~ “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” – Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities Damn, college was a rollercoaster. Like a neverending series of ups and downs, and crazy stuff that seemed to come out of every nook and cranny you see. But you know … Continue reading
