What exactly does it take for a spectacular musical filled with bold chorus numbers and heartfelt solos to come to life on the stage in front of a live audience?
n 2018, the idea of the federal #government intervening in everyday life is normal among young people and Americans in general. Our generation has grown up with government overreach is many areas of life without the slightest skepticism. I argue that the idea of limited government and the reasoning behind it has been lost or tainted in an ever-growing trend of interventionism. It is not a partisan issue – it is getting back to America’s roots.

In my house, music is always playing. It is not uncommon to wake up to the sound of Journey, Tom Petty, or Van Halen. Likewise, no car ride is complete without the classics.

I am a firm believer that music makes the hard times easier and the good times better.

Column: When deciding to rush in the South, be prepared, don’t stress and believe every word you hear
“Rush is a big deal in the #South.” That statement is something every girl hears when she decides to go to college and join a sorority in the South. As a girl born and raised in a small town in southeast Missouri who decided to attend school at Ole Miss, I took that statement with a grain of salt. I never thought Rush Week would be as intense as everyone said it was.
I can vividly remember the first time I listened to the album. I had to have been in middle school, 12 or 13 years old, and my mom was driving my siblings and me to school as she blared the CD throughout the car. We listened to Coldplay’s CDs every day in the car, and with every song, I fell in love with their music.

Column: I won’t let scoliosis or obstacles steal my dream of playing football for the Ole Miss Rebels

If you’ve been an Ole Miss fan for the last 50 or so years, you know the saying “We Are Ole Miss.” And you know that does not mean what you think when you read it. It is the saying we use to describe our way of finding a way to screw up any good thing we have going for us.
The University of Mississippi is known for having one of the best accounting schools in the country. Ole Miss is also known as the “Harvard of the South” for its outstanding law program. The university, however, is lacking in the fashion department. During one of my IMC 205 classes, my professor introduced us to some upcoming IMC classes. Mr. Scott Fiene, who is the assistant dean for curriculum and assessment, listed just a slide full of 300-level IMC courses. One included IMC 361 Fashion Promotion. I immediately got in my course favorites and added the class. I knew this was going to be the closest I could get to a fashion course at this school.
