Prowling cougars on college campus OK

College is filled with women and men of all ages, so women dating younger men isn’t all that unlikely. So is being a cougar OK in college? Yes.

A little common scents goes a long way; students talk olfactory pleasantries

Baked goods just as they come out of the oven, a patch of roses as you walk by, and the smell of the opposite sex’s body odor may be exactly what a person’s nose is itching to sniff. In fact, it may be what attracts a person to the opposite sex. B.O. in this case means any […]

Students, faculty debate the debates

The presidential debates have been as heated as ever, and while many students know exactly who they are voting for this year, others have had a hard time deciding.
