The number of college students who have a Facebook account greatly outnumber those that do not have one; and for those who do partake in the social networking giant, many visit the site once a day if not more.

As the month of September dawns, the start of a new school year does too, which involves catching up with old friends, and also meeting and connecting with new friends and acquaintances too.

By: Kim Mayo

Many students only think about going to the Health Services when they are sick enough to miss class, myself included, but this year Health Services wants to really promote personal well-being. The other day, the Director of Education & Promotion, Kathleen Grace-Bishop, came to speak to a student group that I am involved in. She spoke about what Health Services has to offer, and I was completely blown away. She emphasized that they have recently hired two new massage therapists to keep up with the student demand, and now individual meditation lessons are offered.

Superfoods to the Rescue

Tuesday, September 4, 2012
By: Courtney Eaton

We learn about the food pyramid early in life so we already know how to eat a balanced meal. There are some foods however, that are better than others. These are called “superfoods”. These foods can help boost immunity, and decrease the risk of some diseases and cancers. Some can even fight wrinkles, improve memory, and help you lose and keep weight off! It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not. Foods really can have these effects on you, maybe not instantly, but they will make a difference when you incorporate them into your daily diet.
