When it comes to crafting the perfect schedule for fall semester, a lot of first-years don’t know where to begin. Do you play it safe with an intro class or take that 3000 level anthropology course and get three pillars plus a proficiency out of the way? Should you express […]

Arts & entertainment editor says goodbye

May 4, 2014 at 5:51 pm 0 comments

Although I’ve only worked with The Daily Campus for a semester (my last semester), I have enough to say to make a goodbye column worthwhile. I hadn’t, until this semester, worked for a paper –– ever.
