Students of Gettysburg: Ross Silver

By Daniella Snyder, Staff Writer “This year I had the pleasure of being an orientation leader for Hanson 2. Moving in to college can be a frightening experience and my OL was very helpful in my own adjustment. So I wanted to do the same for the class of 2019.

Anti-Advice: Womanly Woes & Worries

Dear Evomo Mortem, I have been having some trouble dealing with the pressures of being a woman.

Not only that, but my body will have to change for the baby while my...

Aunt Izzie: Balancing it all

Dear Aunt Izzie, I feel like every week gets harder. Trying to balance school, sleep and a social life all at once feels impossible, how do people do it? Sincerely, Totally Overwhelmed Dear Totally Overwhelmed, Honestly? People don’t. At least I don’t. Most of us in the college set prefer to go, go, go until our bodies force us to slow down with sickness. Then we take a break until we are healthy enough to resume go, go, going.  But...
