Opinion: SWAU Needs a More Reliable Transportation System

The transportation system that Southwestern Adventist University offers is a great idea. It allows students to be dropped off and picked up at the local airports, train stations, and bus terminals. Taxis can cost as much as $150 each way, and neither Uber or Lyft, which are personal taxi services used with an app on your phone, will serve our location because it is so far from the metro areas. However, if this service is something that we’re going to offer, it needs to have a certain level of … [Read more...]

The university library, in my opinion, is pleasing to the eye. Both the interior … [Read more...]

Opinion: The Woes of Living Off-Campus

The suffocating, sticky, night air clung to me as I pedaled my bicycle through the dimly-lit Keene streets. I bit down on my lip to ignore the throbbing pain that started to pound against my leg as I headed uphill on the poorly constructed road that led to my house. Sweat beads began to form on my temples and on my back and I tried in vain to find my rhythm. The humidity of Texas did nothing to avail my current situation. “This would be so much easier if I had a car,” I muttered sourly to … [Read more...]

Opinion: We Need More Vending Machines On Campus

(Edited by Herman Aguilar) Feeling the breeze of the soon-to-be fall season on campus these first few days of college got me thinking about how beautiful Southwestern Adventist University really is. I started imagining what, if anything, could be missing on campus. The announced theme for the new college year is to become healthier students. Facilities on campus like the library are announcing an earlier closing time to persuade students to get more sleep. Although many students do not … [Read more...]
