Push through your own limits

Push through your own limits

Sometimes I ask myself why I haven’t done anything, or at least any of the things that I planned to do. I was going to get in shape, finish writing that novel and generally do great things. But I didn’t. There was no big reason why I didn’t do them, I just didn’t. I had opportunity. I know where the […]

The position of academic integrity advisor was only recently created in January of 2013 at Wilfrid Laurier University and Caragata and Eaton have spent the past year developing the role.

Revealing your coffee personality

Coffee has become a drink that is as commonplace in people’s lives as breathing. Some cannot start their day without having their morning cup, others have it as an after-dinner drink, and some simply love how it tastes. If you look at how someone chooses to drink their coffee, you get a glimpse of who they really are. Drip Coffee […]

Davidson will succeed Mike Morrice for executive director

Meet Tova Davidson —SWR’s newest director

Tova Davidson is committed to protecting the environment.

But for […]

Returning with a purpose

One couldn’t ask for a better start to the season. In her season debut, fourth-year women’s basketball centre Whitney Ellenor scored 34 points throughout the Concordia Tournament, and was named the “all-star MVP” for Wilfrid Laurier. “Yeah, it wasn’t too bad. I was a little surprised honestly,” Ellenor said regarding her performance. “I didn’t think I would do that well. […]

The politics surrounding prostitution

The Conservatives have stayed in power for as long as they have by being as milquetoast as possible. Harper has dodged social issues for years, rejecting the proposed opening of the abortion debate by his own party and allowing a vote on same-sex marriage to happen relatively unimpeded. While their economic positions are hardly beyond reproach, the party has been […]
