A guide to the best desserts on campus

Sometimes you just need something sweet. It could be a reward for taking that test you studied hard for, a Friday treat or just a little bit of sugar to top off your meal. Most of the best options are in the heart of campus. Inside the Student Center, there’s the pastry hub Au Bon Pain and milkshakes at Chick-fil-A.

Opinion: ​The little things count the most

For many of us, nearly every important memory in our lives has had something to do with our parents. However, it’s important to note the roles they played in the moments of our life that seem so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. We forget about the little things they did for us like take us to the pumpkin patch each autumn, going to all of our little league games, making brownies for the bake sale at school we forgot to mention and just generally being our number one cheerleaders.

OPINION: Bama boys are not that bad

Ever since I can remember, the Auburn/Alabama rivalry has been a big deal. When I was as young as five, my school would have team dress up days where each kid showed off their spirit for the team they cheered for- most every kid wore the orange and blue or crimson and white combos.

EDITORIAL: Victim blaming is not okay

Females are constantly advised not to drink too much or to go places alone, particularly after dark, because “someone might take advantage of you.” If a girl wears what could be considered revealing clothing, then automatically, “she was asking for it.” Even if a woman is wearing revealing clothing or walking alone at night, it is disturbing that in today’s times, women are often advised to take precautions that males aren’t, because if they don’t then some people believe it’s partially their fault if they become a victim of sexual assault.

OPINION: Class registration's unpredictability is not fair

Some of us are on multiple wait lists, while some of us are forced to take electives or classes we aren’t interested in. The question that constantly runs through my mind regarding this process, is why is there so much uncertainty with our schedules and with our graduation dates? More importantly, why is this the case when so many of us work hard and pay thousands of dollars a year to earn a degree within a certain timeframe?

EDITORIAL: Better ways to balance the budget

We understand the necessity of balancing the state budget and realize that it is not easy to make cuts. However, closing DMV offices, regardless of which county they were located in, should have never been an option. There are too many other areas in which budget cuts could’ve been made that would’ve produced a better result financially.
