YOUR UPDATE ON RAGIN' CAJUNS ATHLETICS

  • Updated

In response to last week’s article by C.J. Williams and such penetrating insight as, “(student fees) suck,” I believe it is necessary to challenge the student body at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to raise the level of conversation regarding the cost of attendance. The cost of att…

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT FROM UL LAFAYETTE

OPINION — Nowadays there are so many streaming services available, with even more on the way. With so many out there, it’s hard to pick which to sign up for, especially if you’re on a college budget. Luckily, my cousin and I have an arrangement where we each pay for half of each streaming se…

OPINION  —  In general, I would say that I am not a cynical person when it comes to our government and politics as a whole. I have trust in America’s institutions and government, though never to the extent where I believe them to be infallible, too far gone to be reformed or not worth the ti…

OPINION  —  In April of 2017, a small part of the internet busied itself with discussions of right and wrong. In February of this year, a larger part of the internet took up that same discussion yet again, this time with more fervor. Nerds argued with each other over black and white morality…

OPINION  —  Earlier this semester, I wrote a piece on handling grief, and I briefly mentioned that anger can stem from it, but I did not address how to deal with it when it comes. Today, I will do just that.

OPINION — I have lived in southern Louisiana for all of my life. I was born in Opelousas, lived in Denham Springs, Lafayette, Arnaudville and, finally, Lafayette again; the second time after I moved out of my parents’ house. To say our culture is rich and unique would be an understatement. W…

OPINION — As an incoming freshman, you are bombarded with opportunities. Get On Board day is the most obvious example of this. It is easy to say yes to so many clubs that you quickly get overwhelmed with obligations.

A good story isn’t defined by how it makes its audience feel as they’re experiencing it. Instead, it’s defined by how it makes the audience feel after the fact. A good story keeps its audience thinking about it for hours after; it’s over with emotions running high.

SATIRE — If you’ve never had the pleasure of listening to one of the greatest musicians of the century, let me introduce you to Weird Al Yankovic. The star artist has countless hit songs, several Grammys, gold and platinum records and has often been described as the Mozart of our generation.…

OPINION — Most college students won’t be playing on the university football team anytime soon. No judgment here, my thick glasses help me write articles, not throw a ball.

OPINION — Justin Bieber’s “Justice” album brings me back to the “Purpose” era Bieber. They both contain songs with deep meaning about faith, hope and love. That being said, “Justice” is an overall slower-paced, matured version of “Purpose”, but this time with many songs dedicated to his rela…

OPINION — For some unfortunate reason, there are many myths about how to take care of yourself on the internet that are passed down as old wives’ tales. I plan to go through a few of these and tell you what you should do instead.

OPINION — There’s nothing quite like an adrenaline rush. From jumping out of planes to speeding down a highway, some people will go to great lengths to achieve that feeling. Thanks to video games, some people don’t even have to leave their house to do so.

OPINION — The need for American workers to get their fair share of profits when they give up their time and labor to a company should be of no question. Yet, for some reason, not only is that in question, but the answer seems to always end up being the worker has enough, while the CEOs, mana…
