FASHION FIX: That’s, hopefully, so last year

It’s true, 2013 was a good year for fashion. Pantone’s color of the year — emerald green —swept the streets, Rick Owens brought stomping to the runway, Prada cast a black model for the first time in 20 years and Kate Middleton continued to make me weep happy tears with every flawless outfit she sported.

OUR VIEW: Time to take a stance

Faculty Council chairperson Kip Shawger has it right — Ball State prides itself on being non-discriminatory. We were disappointed that Ball State didn’t step forward at the same time as Indiana University to show disapproval for House Joint Resolution 6, which would define marriage as between a man and a woman in the state constitution. The resolution already puts Indiana forward as an extremely conservative state that clearly won’t accept all kinds of people.

Bundle up, don't bulk up

It’s about that time of year again. Students roll out of bed for their 8 a.m. classes to realize the pajamas they wore to bed won’t suffice in the below-freezing weather. They throw another long sleeve shirt, a hoodie, a coat and an extra pair of sweats over flannel pajama pants and they rush out the door.


OUR VIEW: Gora’s successor has much to prove

At the end of Jo Ann Gora’s 10 years as president of Ball State, she will leave behind a focus on immersive learning, more than $520 million worth of construction and renovations and a renewed interest in athletics. But mostly, Gora will leave behind big shoes to fill. The goal for the 2008 Ball State Bold campaign was $200 million by 2011.


LINDSEY'S PICKS: Email and Eagles

Over the summer, I received multiple emails from Ticketmaster about the History of The Eagles tour. At first, I deleted them, blaming my lack of money and friends interested in the band for not attending.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Student disagrees with columnist's view of immigration reform bill

Last Tuesday, McKenzie Clift published an opinion piece in opposition to the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed by the Senate earlier this year. Clift clearly has some misconceptions about the actual provisions of the bill and what its implications are for the country. Her conclusions about what she calls the Democratic “amnesty” bill — in reality a bipartisan compromise crafted and supported by four Republican Senators, including John McCain and Marco Rubio — are largely incorrect.


OUR VIEW: Nice idea, rough execution

It’s easier to make a rule than to smoothly implement it. Ball State went from having almost 20 smoking sections to having absolutely no smoking on campus Aug. 1.
