(04/09/17 5:50pm)

Last month, the House Republican Leadership attempted to ram a massively divisive and unpopular bill through the United States' Congress and onto the American people. House Speaker Paul Ryan led the push. The bill seemed destined to fail from the outset and even up to the last-minute changes were being made.

COLUMN: Softball has potential to win more than a MAC title

It doesn't really matter what sport you are talking about, the general census is the Big Ten Conference is better than the Mid-American Conference when it comes to skill level and accomplishments in athletics.However, there are certain situations where a specific athlete or even team in the MAC has a season where it could compete at a Power 5 conference level.CMU’s junior guard Marcus Keene is a perfect example in my opinion, because he broke scoring records for Division I NCAA that haven't been touched in decades.An example of a team would be Western Michigan football this past season, going 12-1 while winning the MAC-Championship game and beating two Big Ten schools on their schedule.

EDITORIAL: Unaffiliated fraternities diminish standards set by Greeks, university

(03/26/17 7:01pm)

For fraternities and sororities at Central Michigan University, the beginning of Spring marks a special time of the year: Greek Week. The annual week-long fundraiser, April 2-7, will bring social Greek organizations together as they compete to raise money and awareness for a charitable cause. We think Greek Week epitomizes what it means to be a member of a Greek organization — unity and philanthropy. In that spirit of unity, we also think Greek Week is a good time to discuss an important issue that affects the image of the university and Greek community. There are five "unaffiliated fraternities" that operate outside the purview of CMU – Alpha Chi Rho, Theta Chi, Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Chi. According to the university website, these five fraternities are no longer recognized by CMU due to actions by members that violated established policies.

My journalism career at Central Michigan University has been atypical compared to other students in the program. Picking a major was difficult because I wanted to learn about everything and never stop learning. I switched my major six or seven times before deciding to be a science writer. I had to go far beyond the limits of my comfort zone to find out what I wanted to do with my career.Before I knew much about journalism or how to report news, I had one specific interest — research.

There is no shortage of issues that Democrats and Republicans disagree about.

Sue Guevara’s Chippewas have not made the NCAA Tournament since XXX, but the 10-year head coach has turned the program into the embodiment of “championship culture.”CMU fell short of the big dance this season, unexpectedly losing to Western Michigan University in the XXXX round of the Mid-American Conference Tournament.
