Dodging the Bullet: Stress-Free Rushing

By Jennifer Clogg, Staff Writer My mother has talked about the incredible family of sisterhood that comes from rushing a sorority since before I can remember.

Dodging the Bullet: How Simultaneous Sickness Taught Me a Lesson

By Jennifer Clogg, Staff Writer It started with a cough. It progressed to a cough and a tickle in my throat. Finally, an extremely sore throat with the inability to swallow certain foods, a wheezing cough, and pain in my back and right ribs drove me to the Health Center. I was pretty certain that I had bronchitis (which I did), but was completely unaware that I also had strep throat.  The bronchitis came from staying up late at night...
