The NKU women’s soccer team has started their season 2-2 after a 3-1 win against Murray State over Labor Day weekend. The Norse are attempting to find their footing, with seven freshmen and a new transfer. With a younger team comes learning and growing pains, but the soccer team is embracing the time to learn. “Developing as a team, it’s a very young team right now, but I think we all see great potential on our team and to get us to a championship,” senior midfielder and team captain Shawna Zaken said. “Just developing and learning and growing, I think that's actually fun to do as a team.”

I can still remember the stale smell of bread on my Subway uniform as I excitedly claimed on the job, “I’m going to be a ‘Happy-meat-a-tarian!’” What my 17-year-old self meant at the time was that I was only going to eat meat that was raised “ethically.” This first attempt probably...
