The end of the school year can bring on bouts of anxiety, fatigue, and procrastination just when students need focus and energy. For seniors, this lack of drive can be […]
Though turkey and stuffing might remain standard fair for millions of Americans on Thanksgiving Day, a growing number of families are beginning new holiday food traditions. The number of families not indulging in turkey dinners has risen in recent years: last year, 12% of families chose alternative routes for their feasts. This shift can […]
It seems that there’s never any shortage of films about dysfunctional families at holiday gatherings. Cold Turkey is the latest addition to the category, and it doesn’t bring much to the table. An empty, frivolous film, it’s got little in the way of intelligence and nothing in the way of heart Written and directed by […]

The cause of all these earthquakes is none other than Russell Westbrook.
There have been several dorm security issues during the last couple of weeks.
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to give Rehearsals Grill a try in the coming weeks.
Apple products have become stale in their innovation. It seems as if they are just rehashing old ideas.

I’m just going to say it – I hate Homecoming.
Homecoming is just no fun. It’s a month of hell.
I had the great opportunity to be at a soft launch for Rehearsals, the new campus restaurant at the corner of 23rd Street and Kentucky.
Homecoming is in full swing this week.
There are a variety of events occurring throughout the week, presented by Student Activities Council.
OCU puts on a Chapel service at 1 p.m. every Thursday in the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel.

Patel is the author of several books regarding interfaith relations and Islam in America. He also is the founder of the Interfaith Youth Core.
One of the most cherished traditions at OCU is the Student Choreography Show. I have been humbled to see the show for the past four years. I think this year’s show topped the previous three. All of the dances were superb, from the beginning to the end.
The best thing about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is that it’s a kid’s movie. That’s not to say it isn’t clever or sophisticated – on the contrary, it’s one of the smartest animated films I’ve seen in a while.

Student Governmnet Association has the ability to give out money to organizations through allotments.
Sisters and brothers of the campus of Oklahoma City University, I believe it is time that we accept the inevitable truth: our dear Nubs has gone to the big tree in the sky.
For some of you who did not have the opportunity—nay, the privilege!—of meeting Nubs, let me give you a short
overview of who this amazing squirrel was.
Americans know their rights. This spirit of America is older than America itself.
