Relationships suck. While this may not have the same meaning as my last relationship article, which has somehow become a Call of Duty article, I am still confused about some of the “relationships” here. Not meaning the typical North Central relationship, ring by spring, and married before you can drink wine at your wedding. I’ve grown to accept that people will get married before they know what love is. It’s one of those inevitable realities.
After getting back into the swing of things in the school year, sometimes it’s important to know what is going on, what is around, and what is inexpensive. There are seemingly unlimited possibilities to end the night after open dorms, and to beat writers block. Think North Central is boring? There’s more to it than just playing signs and intramurals.
Some 300-400 students are participating in intramural flag football, according to Jordan Valley, director for intramural sports and a senior pastoral studies major. Of the 10 men’s teams, the “ones to beat” are 4E, 4W, MOE, and 2W Phillipps Hall, according to Valley.
Throughout the course of my time here at North Central University, I’ve seen many peers get burned out from class schedules and over-commitment. While in college, we feel that being extra busy is normal, so we become okay with the fact that we’re driving ourselves into a habit of an unhealthy lifestyle.
With last year’s season starting on a six game losing streak before finally gaining momentum, it was necessary for North Central women’s soccer to start this season off on the right foot. So far, they’ve done just that, kicking things off with a 2-2 record in their first four games
It’s that time of the year again. School has started, and North Central has brought in new kids on the block: freshmen. These incoming students come from all over the United States. Some come from the surrounding areas, while others find themselves trekking to Minneapolis from states such as Iowa, Nebraska or California.
Julianne Alfieri is a junior pastoral studies major, who is paying her way through college by cutting, coloring, and styling North Central students’ hair. As a transfer student, this is Alfieri’s first year at North Central and within the first two weeks of school she had already styled about 15 students’ hair.
