Dinner for Two

by Published: Feb 9, 2012

Make this Valentine’s Day extra spe­cial (and cost-effective) by prepar­ing a deli­cious meal at home with your sweetheart.

If you’re any­thing like me, the kitchen is a pretty for­eign room where you go to fill up your water fil­ter. My idea of seri­ous cook­ing is adding ham­burger meat to my mac­a­roni and cheese. (more…)

Making the Grade

by Published: Jan 25, 2012

With the change of pro­fes­sors each semes­ter, many of them can blur together in the minds of stu­dents. Some pro­fes­sors, how­ever, go above and beyond to leave a last­ing impact on their students.

An FSU pro­fes­sor who really stands out for Erin Munsel, FSU Honors sopho­more in pre-pharmacy, is Dr. Clifton Franklund. Munsel had Franklund for micro­bi­ol­ogy. (more…)

“Mormons make me wish my apart­ment had a peep­hole.” That was my Facebook sta­tus toward the begin­ning of this semester.

We’ve all seen them walk­ing around cam­pus before…the men who are dressed way too dap­per to be ordi­nary col­lege stu­dents. Two of them, Elder Jones and Elder Ballard, approached me on cam­pus. In talk­ing with them, I real­ized just how lit­tle I knew about Mormonism. (more…)

“All for one and one for all” is one of the most famous lines from Alexandre Dumas’ play The Three Musketeers; it was obvi­ous to audi­ence mem­bers that this men­tal­ity spread beyond just the stage over the Nov. 4 weekend.

“Theatre itself is a fam­ily, but other shows have not car­ried as strong of a con­nec­tion as we have with The Three Musketeers,” Kate Schwartz, a senior in busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion who played Madame de Lannoy and Kitty, said. (more…)
