Review Editorial Board

March 18, 2018

With the newly minted wine studies major and the tremendous donation by Grace and Ken Evenstad, Linfield should pat itself on the back and then ride the momentum by improving its other offerings in the hopes of attracting even more students. “This gift will enable thousands of future students to...

Braelyn Swan, Staff writer

March 16, 2018

Nothing beats a good old fashioned Girl Scout cookie. Not only are they delicious but the proceeds go to a great program for young girls. With Thin Mints being the staple of girl scout cookies, Tagalongs provide that peanut buttery flash back to eating peanut butter straight from the jar as a kid...

Students of Linfield College gathered Saturday evening in Ice Auditorium to watch the movie “Coco,” the latest movie released by Disney and Pixar.

Forget political affiliation, discuss ending shootings

Grant Beltrami, Staff writer

March 5, 2018

There are famously more guns in the United States than there are people. Implementing effective gun control in the United States is a daunting task. However, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try and it doesn’t mean that nothing can be done about the increasingly common mass shootings that...

Editorial: Make prospective students feel welcome

Review Editorial Board

March 5, 2018

The first Spring Visit Day of the month, March 12, for prospective students and their parents is fast approaching. Current Linfield students tend to sigh loudly at the mention of large tour groups walking slowly around campus and extra cars taking the already limited number of parking spaces. It’s...

Oregon offers ’Cats adventure

Kyle Huizinga, Staff writer

March 5, 2018

Though it may seem that life at Linfield starts at the library and ends at Pioneer, there is a whole world of adventure that awaits outside of the campus boundaries. The un-motivational Oregon weather and lack of vehicles are obstacles most students face. If you find yourself without transportation...

Kendrick and co. slay ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack

Emma Knudson, Staff writer

March 5, 2018

Mastering a movie soundtrack such that it can exist as a standalone piece and buoy a film is a difficult feat. Too many soundtracks are so intertwined with the film that listening to it without the accompanying scenes to support it feels disjointed. It’s almost like eating spaghetti sauce without...

Linfield community fractured, needs help

Review Editorial Board

February 19, 2018

Tensions are rising here at Linfield – we’re in a budget crunch, enrollment is down, the price of higher education is rising – but this is exactly the time we need to band together in solidarity, not create meaningless divisions that will only serve to weaken us. We like to talk about the “Linfield...

Emma Knudson, Staff writer

February 19, 2018

As a child, I was fascinated by olympians and the entire concept of the Olympics. In my young mind, the Olympics were the Royal World Championships for only a chosen few badasses for every sport ever made, even sports I never knew were considered sports—horse-back riding? Curling? Race walking? For...

Linfield began announcing its tenure nominees. This is the most job security one can ever hope to attain, and the announcement will no doubt be not only a career-changing moment for some faculty, but also a life-changing one as well.

Emma Knudson, Staff writer

February 14, 2018

Valentine’s Day is here, and whether you find yourself dating, single, wanting to express your platonic or unrequited love to a friend, or you simply do not love the not-so-subtle capitalistic subtexts of this day, there are multiple ways to recognize Cupid’s Holy Day.

What to do with the old bookstore

Angel Rosas, Staff Writer

February 13, 2018

Losing the original book store came as a surprise for most of us. However, what makes the move so interesting is all the possibilities for the open room. Whether or not you love or hate the new one-stop-shop bookstore you can't deny that having an empty room waiting for construction at the very least peaks your...
