Pumpkin Carving 101

Alexandra Feller, Writer

October 30, 2018

As a teenager, you held carving parties with your friends that (sometimes) went...

Emma Olson, Writer

October 30, 2018

Contrary to popular belief, Halloween movies and horror movies are two different things. Just because a movie is scary, doesn’t mean it’s right to get you in the spooky mood. Don’t get me wrong, I love horror movies, but not everyone is a big fan. This is why it’s important to recognize...

Livia Kokkino, Writer

October 30, 2018

Halloween music. Is it even a thing? Personally, I’m kind of in the middle when it comes down to liking it or not. When it’s played any time before the actual holiday of Halloween, it can be kind of tacky unless it’s played at a party the weekend before (Halloweekend baby am I right?) or on the...

Angel’s top five best Halloween candies

Angel Rosas, Features Editor

October 30, 2018

Candy. It is truly my Achilles heel - that and most foods if I am being honest. And for the month of October--it was never just about Halloween night, people--I can gorge myself on copious amounts sugar, and no one can say anything about it. But if for some cruel reason my lavish lifestyle of candy...

We got it wrong. In our most recent editorial “Tread lightly, wine studies students,” we inaccurately represented the wine studies department by stating incorrect information. Here are our corrections. We referred to wine studies as having introduced a master’s program to Linfield. Rather, w...

Meal plan between A, B would serve wider range of students

Anne Walkup, Opinions Editor

September 25, 2018

Sodexo adopts the all-or-nothing concept when it comes to selecting a meal plan. Students on the A plan pay for the luxury of making unlimited visits to the dining hall, while those wishing to save money by choosing the B plan must drop to 12 meals per week. Breaking it down, students on the B...

Group projects are heavily criticized by many students. Despite their objections, there are many benefits that cause educators to continue to assign them.

Linfield garden lacks the help it needs to flourish

Lance Evans and Ellen Gallagher

September 18, 2018

The community at Linfield is one of openness and comraderie, so Linfield students should always be looking for ways to further develop that environment.
