Plastic plagues our planet

Over the past 10 years, the plastic industry has created more plastic than there was created during the whole last century. Plastic is used in everyday life. Most things are made out of plastic: the computer that is used to do homework, the phone used to talk to parents, the utensils to eat food, and many […]

Guns on campus dangerous for students

Guns on a college campus – not the correct way to keep students safe. In 2004, the Utah Legislature passed a bill allowing guns on state property, which allowed guns on college campuses. I am pro-Second Amendment but not on a college campus. Every person, with the exception of those not allowed to obtain a […]

Graduation condensed to one ceremony

Graduation is on the horizon for seniors at Dixie State University, but it is going to be a little different this year.

College degree isn’t only option

College is something not everyone is cut out for, but there are more than just the typical college educations. There are two types of college students: the type who go for themselves because they want to and the type who go because their parents want them to go. If someone is going to make it through college and enjoy it, […]

PISA celebrates cultural diversity with luau

Cultural dances from the Pacific came all the way to Dixie State University on Saturday for luau guests at the end of Diversity Week. The dances were performed by the Pacific Islander Student Association; each dance represented different Pacific islands.  Vika Havili, president of the PISA club and a junior biology major from Salt Lake […]

Canvas should be required for full-time teachers

Canvas – I think it is a good thing, but some might not think the same way.  I like when my professors use Canvas. For the first thing, it makes it easier to track assignments. When I can track my assignment, I can just look on Canvas instead of emailing my professor and hoping for a […]
