The February snowstorm led to the loss of many campus trees. To counteract the losses, ASUCC put together a tree planting ceremony. The snowpocalypse,  also known as Snowstorm Ryan, left the once beautiful campus looking in ruins with down trees and fallen debris.

A total of 16 trees were planted. Staff and students planted sixRead More →

Yes, zombie appreciation month is in May, far from October and Halloween. Who knew we’d be celebrating freakish corpses during this sunny month?

Going to the movies is sometimes a treat, for some of us it is a once a month treat; while some of us go all the time. However, often it does not give other moviegoers an excuse to do the following movie fouls. Peeing in a cup. Avengers: Endgame just came out. I know there are some die hard fans that don’t want to leave to go to the bathroom, but please for the love of God just go use the bathroom. If you’re a die hard fan, you’ll probably go see it again anyways. Bringing children to horror movies. If it’s PG 13 IRead More →

Seniors from high schools or possible students from the community had a look behind the curtain to discover what they would like to do when they attend UCC. Whether or not it was more successful than last year is hard to say, but with 100 people attending sure is better than 0. The event had thirty departments participate including the automotive department, History, TOP and human resources just to name a few. Explore UCC will come back for 2020. Jessica Richardson, recruitment coordinator said “Yes, Absolutely.”Read More →

2019 Pet Sematary should have been left dead Thirty years after Louis Creed did whatever it took to save his family from the grips of death the classic tale of the “Pet Sematary” is back, but with some new twists.

This is the story of a family who moves to a new home only to find tragedy due to the supernatural powers of the pet cemetery near their new home. Now, in 2019, a reboot of the classic has been released, and much like those resurrected in the movie thisRead More →

The 2018 year has been a roller-coaster, having its fair share of good and bad moments. Movies were the same; however, how many of those movies left viewers full of thrills? I will discuss my opinion in 3 categories: good movies, OK movies and terrible movies. A golden star next to the title indicates the winner that was either the best, OK or the Worst of that category. I like to think that I’m a positive person, so I will start with the best first.

One cannot simply hear a Queen song and get it out of their heads. However, the iconic rock band was not always unforgettable. As their new biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody shows, they started out a little rough around the edges. “What makes Queen any different from all of the other wannabe rockstars I meet?” the manager of Queen, John Reid (played in the movie by Aiden Gillen) asked when he met the band at the beginning of their career. Queen’s front man answered, “We’re four misfits who don’t belong together; we’re playing for the other misfits. They’re the outcasts, right at the back of the room.Read More →

The Horror Galore & Much More column reviews movies of multiple genres including horror films.  1.“Halloween” 2018 “Halloween” was great! This movie has done right by the franchise. I loved this movie for a couple of reasons. The way that the movie began, its credits almost the same as the 1978 film, made me smile as I reminisced to when I watched the film for the first time. I knew this movie wasn’t trying to be better than the original. This version felt like a strong tribute to the original directed by John Carpenter. I also liked the Easter eggs in the movie such asRead More →

The Politics in Pieces column is by editor Christian DeWeese The 2018 midterms have been hyped up since November 9, 2016, with some hoping for a “blue wave” and others wanting a continued Republican majority. While governor and congressional races are getting the majority of people’s attention, what about the literal other side of the ballot (the side we usually know hardly anything about)? This year, the measures on that other side include opportunities for voters to directly have a say in some important new laws. On Nov. 6, Oregon voters will vote on six key of state and county measures related to everything fromRead More →
