When he was three years old, Andrew Parkhurst went to see a stage performance of “The Wizard of Oz.” That’s where Parkhurst’s determination to be a dancer began.
CORRECTIONS

In the Oct. 24 issue of the Skiff, the story entitled “Professor in hot seat” misspelled the names of Carson Daly and Vaune Raskopf.

In the Oct. 31 edition of the Skiff, Susan Douglas Roberts was incorrectly identified on second reference. It should have said Douglas Roberts.

Children shouldn’t have all the fun
COMMENTARY

It’s commendable that many of us college students add to the Halloween spirit by hosting or participating in events for community children, like Colby Halloween or Boo at the Zoo. But what about us? When do we have our fun? It’s about time college students took the streets back from those little monsters with candy-coated hands, instead of sitting at home in their robes studying for next week’s exams.
Senior trying to find truth
COMMENTARY

I am at that point in my university education where rational thought is a struggle, and sometimes all I want to do is sit around my apartment and watch soccer on Fox Sports World. Some would call me lazy, yet I am successfully navigating 21 hours of course work and two part-time jobs. Thus, I think my ambivalence toward school comes from a different source.

Men’s golf moves up on ratings chart

TCU cross country teams head to Florida

The TCU men’s and women’s cross country teams return to action on Saturday, when they travel to Tampa, Fla., to compete in the Conference USA Cross Country Championships, hosted by the University of South Florida.
Conference USA needs to take risks, capitalize on championship game
COMMENTARY

Conference USA should take the offensive.

It is difficult for TCU fans to understand this concept. Before the Frogs’ offensive explosion last Saturday against Houston, their beloved Frogs were considered a defensive team that stops the opponent from scoring as opposed to going all out to put as many points on the scoreboard as possible.

Spooky History

Once a year we get decked out to roam the streets of our neighborhoods in search of candy and mischief. But does anybody really know why?
What to do this Halloween

For college students, Halloween is no longer about cute costumes and loads of candy. OK, for some it might still be about the candy, but for most, Halloween is yet another reason to go out and party. It is the one night of the year when you can step out of your comfort zone and stretch the boundaries of normality, since one little phrase can save you from the perils of social accountability: “Hey, it was Halloween!”

Sweet dreams, that is if you can fall asleep!
