At the beginning of the semester, hundreds of [...]Continue Reading →
It’s that time of year again. The person you thought you were casually dating invited you to their office Christmas party. Before you head for the hills, consider these tactics to survive the oh-so-dreaded holiday get-togethers. Hopefully it’ll spare you your relationship and your sanity.

Once the Thanksgiving meal has found its way into our stomachs, most of us turn the conversation to football. But with the Rams and Chiefs inactive today, most Columbians don’t have a dog in any of the NFL fights. Allow Vox, then, to steer the conversation toward cats, Tigers specifically.
The Missouri football team will [...]Continue Reading →

When I was younger, my parents would take my sisters and I to the grocery store and let us pick out an entire Thanksgiving meal. Turkey, jelled cranberry sauce, cornbread mix — you name it, we bought it. We’d then donate all our purchases to our church’s food pantry.
So this week, why not spend [...]Continue Reading →
