3 easy recipes for college students
Tristan Rathbun, Staff Writer • March 29, 2022
Most college students don’t yet realize how easy it is to cook. We expect it to require time, labor and skill that we don’t have, but that is far from the truth. Do you have a pot, a stove, a knife and a cutting board? That’s all you need! Here are three simple recipes that I often turn to when I’m hungry, busy and don’t want to do too many dishes. It should be noted that the spice suggestions are low to accommodate milder tastes, but feel free to increase the measurements as needed.

College is an especially hard time period to make friends, made worse recently by a pandemic that limits socialization. It is a time period when students can feel like they don’t know anything. “Trauma Tuesdays” doesn’t try to know more but rather learns and moves alongside their audience like a group of friends would. The learning curve is different for everyone in college, and friends, whether present personally or through a podcast, help the journey along.

Jamie Lane on UNCW alumni project ‘Birdies’ and indie film production
Abigail Celoria, Assistant Culture Editor • January 27, 2022
Lane’s experience in acting and film has taught him valuable lessons about the drive it takes to succeed in the industry. “Number one, with anything in art, you’ve got to really want to do it,” said Lane on his advice for aspiring artists. “It’s not about the accomplishment, but the wanting. That is what will carry you to succeed. And then you’ve got to make your own content while you pursue the paycheck. That is what will distinguish you. If you’re pursuing this for the right reasons, you’ll be making your own content anyway.”
