Moments ago I finished my last undergrad final… ever. Although I more than likely scared Greg DeBlasio with my outburst of excitement and out of rhythm happy dance, between awkwardly bouncing through the lobby of Griffin Hall, the bittersweet realization settled. When I found out that the excessive...

The season may end, but the show is far from over

I can write a story about another person. I can write a long, passionate piece about why a television show shouldn’t have killed off my favorite character. Actually I can basically write about TV shows better than anything else. But writing a goodbye is not my forte. I’ve been dreading writing th...

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s all over. I always thought that I’d have some impassioned speech when my time at The Northerner came to a close, but I got nothing. I think what I’ll miss most is the people I worked with. When I first started writing, I heard the phrase “The Northerner family”...

About this time last year, I was approached by one of my professors and asked if I’d be interested in working on a documentary project with a few EMB students and a non-profit in Cincinnati.

In January 2010, I took my first step onto NKU’s campus as a freshman and on May 9 I will join many other seniors as we take our last steps across the stage, but perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself. When I was young, I firmly believed I would never go to college. The simple reason was because o...

Coming to NKU, I never thought I would be working for a newspaper for three of my four years on campus. I never thought I would be spending my multiple weeknights stuck in an office after class working on the paper, editing pictures and laying out the edition. I never thought I would be working for a ...

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my time at NKU, it’s that one’s loss and grief is the greatest force behind an even more positive future. If you had told me that on March 28, 2013, I wouldn’t have believed you. When the words “and for president and vice-president” come out of...
