"The Sympathizer" by Viet Thanh Nguyen is just fantastic fiction and easily one of my favorite books of all time. It’s thriller, spy, action, romance, war and a hint of Orwell all in one.  The novel is framed as the confession of an unnamed spy in a North Vietnamese prison, but here’s the kick:...

Friends, I have a book recommendation. Okay, not a “book.” It’s more of a picture book. Okay, not even that. It’s a comic. Matt Wagner’s "Grendel" is a comic book filled with color, gore and adventure. If you don’t have any context, PLEASE allow me to explain.  Grendel is the dem...

Guys, I get it. Drinking alone sucks. What’s the point of slamming a six-pack of Natty Light if you can’t do it with the boys on a Saturday night? Even worse, the bars are closed to indoor business. No drunken revelry at The Coug, Valhalla Bar and Grill or any of your favorite weekend hangouts...

We all love ice cream, but we college students often tend to settle for a reasonably priced tub of something more affordable instead of buying more expensive individually priced cones.
