She’s written dozens of columns in the past year-and-a- half and answered questions you wouldn’t dare ask your closest friends. You’ve read her articles every week and you’ve always wondered, “Who is she?” As she gets ready to begin the next chapter in her life and pass on her column to a new advice guru, Kayy has finally decided to reveal a bit about herself, her plans for the future and (of course) leave you with some parting words of wisdom.

This past Tuesday was Election Day, and there was, as always, a great deal at stake: the election of new congressmen and senators, control of the House and Senate, and – perhaps most importantly – women’s reproductive rights, as an abortion ban ballot initiative was voted down 56 to 44 percent in South Dakota.

August 30, 2006 Paige Nestel 0

Dear (hopefully) tanned and relaxed College students,

March 8, 2006 Paige Nestel 0

January 25, 2006 Paige Nestel 0

Winter break may have just ended, but it’s never too early – and soon, it may even be too late – to book your ultimate spring break vacation.

Every year, thousands of college students are given one week (usually in late February or March) to leave behind a world of nagging professors, projects, papers and exams and escape to paradise. […]

January 25, 2006 Paige Nestel 0

At one time or another, you may have wondered: Why do I have to take math if I’m an English major? Why do I have to learn about cave paintings to get my diploma? Just what, exactly, is the point of all of these general education requirements?

But since 1993, the General Education (or, as it is now called, Liberal Learning) Program has had an enthusiastic champion in its director, Robert Anderson. […]

The popular television game show, which features host Alex Trebek and airs on ABC, has fascinated Lackey for as long as she can remember. […]

November 30, 2005 Paige Nestel 0

We’ve all been there. You’re stumbling home from a random party at 2 a.m. and you’re starving. All of the dining halls on campus are long closed, and operating a car, or any other type of heavy machinery, is definitely out of the question. Suddenly, a familiar voice cuts through the night: “Pizza! Five dolla!” Relief and gratitude wash over you as you fumble for a $5 bill. […]

November 16, 2005 Paige Nestel 0

Some came because a class required it. Others came out of sheer interest. But no matter what the reason, all those who attended “Resistance in a Choiceless World – A Holocaust Survivor’s Story” last Tuesday had one thing in common: they came to remember.

The program, held in the Music Building and sponsored by the Jewish Student Union (JSU) during Holocaust Remembrance Week, featured the words, poetry and prose of Holocaust survivor Judith Sherman, now a New Jersey resident. […]

November 9, 2005 Paige Nestel 0

Have you ever sat down at your desk, prepared to study or write a paper, and found yourself chatting with a friend on AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) instead? Have you ever logged on simply to check your e-mail, then glanced at the clock to realize that hours have gone by?

Today, with the Internet playing such a large role in our lives, it is easy to get swept up in a virtual world – and even easier to let precious minutes that should be devoted to work or socializing slip by in doing so. […]

Winter’s on its way, but don’t get SAD

November 2, 2005 Paige Nestel 0

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing, the clocks have been turned back and even die-hard flip-flop wearers will soon be forced to trade their Reefs for a pair of snow boots. While it’s normal to pine for long days at the shore and the relaxed atmosphere of summer, there are over half a million people in the United States alone who suffer from symptoms of depression with the onslaught of the cold winter months.
