OPINION | Luxury and woeful bathrooms at Dixie State University

A combination of privacy and relative cleanliness makes the bathroom on the first floor of the Browning Learning Resource Center the best men’s bathroom on campus. Few things on this earth can offer the solitude and peace that a bathroom can. Humans are in their most vulnerable state while using the bathroom. Finding one as […]

OPINION | The Academy Awards reaction to Will Smith’s slap is too little too late

It would be hypocritical for the academy to take away Will Smith’s Oscar after they intentionally benefited greatly from the incident.  The 2022 Oscars produced yet another example of how absurd the world of celebrity culture is. Acclaimed comedian Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s, wife of Will Smith, recent hair loss. […]

SPORTS OPINION | March Madness

The 2022 March Madness tournament has been… well, madness.  March Madness is the official tournament to decide the NCAA men’s basketball national champion. Fittingly named, the single-elimination tournament style consistently produces some of the most iconic moments in sports history. I know I’m not alone in the world of sports fanatics when I say there is […]

OPINION | Should student-athletes be paid?

With the amount of money student-athletes bring in for universities, the fact they don’t get paid is borderline criminal-like.  By definition, a student-athlete is a part-time or full-time student at the university that also participates in the competitive athletic programs offered by the school.

OPINION | It’s time to hit refresh on DSU’s dining options

Dixie State University’s underwhelming dining options need a revamp.  While a good Chick-fil-A sandwich is always a crowd-pleaser, the dining options on campus are weak for the most part.  A lack of diversity in food choices leads to incredibly bland options for students. Fried chicken, pizza, smoothies and sandwiches are all North American fast-food classics […]

Trailblazers come out on top in OT during old hammer rivalry game

Dixie State University’s men’s basketball team defeated Utah Valley University 80-75 in a thriller at the Burns Arena on Feb. 19. Hunter Schofield led the way for the Blazers with 26 points and seven rebounds. Despite UVU’s Fardaws Aimaq’s incredible effort of 20 points and 21 rebounds, the Blazers came out on top.  First half […]

DSU students, faculty and staff get free transportation through SunTran

There are plenty of cheap and even free transportation options available for Dixie State University students.  With seven different routes that go around town and a couple that go to Washington, the SunTran buses are a great option for students to get to and from DSU campus.  DSU has a deal with SunTran and the […]
