I’m currently writing this in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven in Kansas City after finding out a potential job opportunity I was interviewing for wasn’t much more than multi-level marketing with a little extra flair and not as much product buying. So don’t ask me how the job search is going. If...

Graduating in four years feels like leaving the party early, so instead, I did it in four-and-a-half. In my short two-and-a-half years at WSU, I have done quite a bit, but the best part of my college experience has undoubtedly been the people who made it memorable. No one remembers their college years...

When I first heard about Disney’s new streaming service in advertisements and in the news across the media conglomerate’s Fox-owned outlets — weird, right? — it didn’t sound like a service tailored for me.  Just like most zoomers, I grew up with Disney movies, shows and the channel, but...

I liked the bad Sonic design so much more than the $5 million-dollar redesign that fans clamored for after the introduction of the beady-eyed speed rodent we won’t be seeing. This is coming from a 23-year-old who loved Sonic when he was growing up. I would play the games, read the comics and watch...

December 2, 2019

It’s not very often that I’m extremely excited for a movie when I haven’t already enjoyed the book or when it’s not a sequel (or prequel or franchise). But I was super excited for “Knives Out.” The movie trailer itself is a masterpiece, using “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die” by Frank...

Dear Editor, Wichita State University Emeritus Professor H. Edward Flentje's recent diatribe against pro-life Kansans demands a response. Kansans for Life is the state's largest pro-life organization, and our members come from all walks of life. What unites us is our respect for human life, born...

I’m fairly new to Wichita State, and for the most part, I have enjoyed my time here. I have met many unique individuals, taken new classes, and continuously been a part of bigger and better things. One thing I’ve noticed are the specific values advertised across campus. Values like diversity,...

I used to like “The Office.” Emphasis on the used to. I’ve heard people talk more and more about how the show “would never have survived in this day and age.” To the people saying that, you’re right — not because people are too sensitive, but because the jokes are just straight-up offensive. “The...

One of the craziest periods of my life started this August. I finally convinced myself to attend the Miss Black and Gold informational that the Delta Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha hosted. I entered the room nervous, sitting in a reserved seat in the back of the room. As someone who battles with...

Camera Gate? Trash Can Gate? Whistle Gate? What in the world is happening with the Astros? For starters, according to a report from the Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Houston Astros have been stealing signs with an outfield camera and alerting their batters to what pitch is coming. There are multiple...

Relationships are magical, aren’t they? You find someone you’re fond of who happens to have the same fondness for you. They tell you how amazing you are, give you gifts, send you cute text messages throughout the day, and just make you pretty darn happy in general.  As someone who’s happily...

I’m going to say it, and believe me, I hate doing it; finals are coming up soon. There are only five weeks of classes left. That means most of you reading this have projects, papers, and studying you need to do — after reading this week’s issue of The Sunflower, of course — but what that als...
