Could an online test understand me?

Jonas Doerr- I was discovering my number. Click. Click. Click. was guiding me through it, asking personal question after personal question. This wasn’t a phone number, although one might still ask for this number at a bar. This was my Enneagram number; a personality archetype somewhere between one and nine that could reveal hidden […]

The reality of moms and social media

Raquel Vaughn- For a really long time, I was lucky enough to have a mother who didn’t know anything about social media.

Men’s basketball on top!

Teddy Kaste- The Gus Young court erupted into pandemonium last Saturday when the Gustavus Men’s Basketball team defeated the Hamline Pipers 72-71 to win the MIAC championship.

Overtime Thriller!

Parker Burman- This past weekend, the Gustavus Women’s Hockey team hosted rival Bethel in the MIAC Semifinals, with a trip to the MIAC Championship game on the line.
