You’ll make the time

The phrase “You will make time for the things you treasure” is a well known one. It is one that I agree with, because in this phrase, many crucial parts of life are covered: Desires, time management, identity, importance and more. I would like to, though, focus on the word […]

Faith: restoring, not dividing

Not many students can say they were raised in both a Protestant and Catholic home, but those of us that were raised that way are called the “Arnold Palmers of Christianity.” My life has been filled with Christian churches and Catholic missions, pastors and priests and devotionals and rosaries. My […]

Meal plan choices fail to satisfy

What’s for lunch today? The question hounds me as I weigh what meager options the cafeteria has to offer. I could go for the green beans, so rubbery they squeak against my teeth when I eat them. There are also the leftover biscuits from morning breakfast, cleverly disguised in cheese […]

Spring events lack Salsa spice

Many JBU students may be wondering, where did all the fun go? JBU may have a plethora of exciting events this semester—the Talent Show, sports, and plays—but there is one thing they are missing. Why do we not have a salsa dance? As far as I know, the salsa dance […]

Glass illuminates stories of school’s past

Maybe it’s a story of a drummer boy. Or maybe it’s the evolution of Siloam Springs. Or, maybe it’s a depiction of an alien invasion—there are pictures of cornfields, a strange antennae and a series of obscure acronyms after all. Whatever the story is behind the Cathedral’s stained glass windows, […]

New building promotes student camaraderie

Students’ chatter filled the engineering computer lab downstairs in the Balzer Technology Center as they gathered to work on homework together. “Where an English [major] can write a paper anywhere on campus, we can only do stuff here,” said senior engineering major Joseph Kmetz, explaining why students frequent the lab […]

Prepping talent

With an event as big as Talent Show, preparation is everything. From video to transitions to timing, the show must go on without a hitch. However, due to an overlap from the first show at 7 p.m., the doors for the second show at 9 p.m. did not open until […]

Weekend retreats focus on Christian walk

On Friday evening, 140 students packed their bags, loaded up in cars and waved goodbye to John Brown University for a weekend dedicated to learning what it means to “walk” in Christ at the women’s and men’s spring retreat. About one hundred women headed east to enjoy the weekend at […]
