“On my honor, I will uphold the values of Elon University: honesty, integrity, responsibility, and respect.”
The first assignment I had to complete for one of my classes this year almost gave me a panic attack.
Allison Bechdel’s “Fun Home” is no stranger to controversy. Since its initial publication in 2006, the graphic memoir has been repeatedly studied, scrutinized and summarily rejected for its unflinching portrayal of harsh subjects.
Call your parents — or your grandparents, or whoever took care of you when you couldn’t take care of yourself — every once in a while. Seriously.
Coming into college, many of us were told, “Watch out for the Freshman 15,” those pounds you may or may not pick up after late-night snacks and forgetting to go to the gym for a few weeks in a row. It doesn’t end with freshman year, though.
There are plenty of demands and concerns associated with moving back to college and starting a new semester. It would be nice if acquiring textbooks weren’t one of them.
Picture arriving on campus for the upcoming fall semester. There are so many changes to formerly familiar buildings on campus, and you can’t imagine how it all was done in three months. There is a whole new part of Daniel Commons with an Einstein Bros Bagels, and Danieley Neighborhood added a huge gym.
Doctor's Orders is a weekly satirical column in which two unprofessional, definitely fake doctors offer up prescriptions for their Phoenix patients. With only a few more days of class left, we’re staring down the barrel of the end of the year.
From a young age, we’re told that people around the world have larger problems than we do.
When I think back to my time as an incoming freshman two years ago, I can remember my desire to find activities beyond the classroom in which I could actively participate.

At Elon University, the end of each school year is marked by Spring Undergraduate Research Forum (SURF) presentations on what is affectionately referred to as SURF day.
The past few days have broken those in the Nepali diaspora in ways that I can’t quite articulate.
Let’s hope this doesn’t become an annual question. Spring practice is over and as we progress into the summer and fall, the same question surrounds the Elon University football team. Who’s going to start at quarterback? It’s head coach Rich Skrosky’s second season, and it’s the second straight year this is at the forefront of discussion.
Doctor's Orders is a weekly satirical column in which two unprofessional, definitely-fake doctors offer up prescriptions for their Phoenix patients. Spring at Elon is a time of rain, change, procrastination and, according to legend, preparation for finals.
At 9 a.m. February 2, 2013, I received the worst call of my life. It left me speechless.
This was probably just what Elon University had in mind when it made the move to the Colonial Athletic Association. A late Friday afternoon women’s lacrosse game against a team from Long Island who brought fans to tailgate. That sounds quintessential for the league, one based with teams up through the mid-Atlantic where lacrosse is a popular sport.
To say that technology — specifically computers and smartphones — has altered society throughout the past decade is an understatement.
Doctor's Orders is a weekly satirical column in which two unprofessional, definitely fake doctors offer up prescriptions for their Phoenix patients. Elon University got dragged through the mud by traditional media this past week when education news and analysis website The Hechinger Report revealed that, apparently, Elon isn’t economically diverse, and The Times News — our hometown newspaper — picked up the story. Burned on our own turf? Stabbed in the back?
