Forever Part of the Hive

Peter Lynch, ’09 Alumnis

We are Hornet born, Hornet bred and, when we die, so the “Lynchburg College Fight
Song” goes, we will be Hornet dead. Not much is said of the period between our Lynchburg rearing and our final Hornet days.

The LC Alumni Association’s Board of Directors is working to make the time in between
exceptional. Current students, faculty, staff and alumni make up the core of the LC community. Read more

Sports Junkie: Baseball Begins

Lynn Walsh, Multimedia Editor~

Sunday, April 2 marked Opening Day for Major League Baseball with three contests in action. Even though spring training had been underway for some time, the start of the official season means a lot of things, the obvious being the return of a baseball fan’s favorite sport. It also has a lot of other connotations like warm weather and fun nights spent with family and friends. Read more

Help a Hornet Out

Katherine Graves, Copy Desk Chief

For Lynchburg College’s second annual Give Day on Thursday, April 6, anonymous donors have challenged the college to raise donations from 2,500 donors, and if this goal is reached, they will donate $75,000 to the college.

Donors can choose to give to a specific section or department of the school or give to the general Annual Fund. Donations must be a minimum of $5 and can be made online, on campus outside Schewel Hall or on the third floor of the Drysdale Student Center or by calling the Give Day’s phonathon. Read more

Nerd Factor: Compartments of the Disneyverse

Dr. Mike Robinson, LC Communication Studies Professor~

Captain America, Elsa and Darth Vader are standing in a big box retail store.  It sounds like the beginning to a joke, but it’s actually a promotional poster from the end of an aisle in Target. The image was designed to draw customers over to the kids’ t-shirt section, where many potential purchases awaited them. Read more

LC in History: Madness in the Air

Dr. Clifton W. Potter Jr., LC History Professor~

The day that my recent column appeared which dealt with sunbathing, a friend reminded me that, when Montgomery Hall had a flat roof, it also provided a forbidden place to sun until the administrators in charge discovered the secret and locked the doors. Another friend remarked that the grassy areas behind the lower dorms used to resemble a beach from the first warm spring day until the end of exams. Read more

Science With Hannah: The Purr-fect Smell

Hannah Narvaez, Staff Blogger~

When I think of the purpose of wearing perfume, it’s to smell just a little bit better
than usual.

Like something flowery or fruity, sometimes I come across an occasional “musky”
smell that appeals to me. Perfume is just an odd human thing. We really only wear
perfume (and cologne) for other humans. But what about the scent-demands of our
animals? Read more

Film Review: “Ghost in the Shell”

Daniel Dearden, Staff Writer~

Few films have explored the idea of what it means to be human as strongly as Mamoru
Oshii’s 1995 anime “Ghost in the Shell.”

Based on the 1989 manga of the same name, this cyberpunk film raised the bar for
animation as a whole, even influencing renowned live-action films like “The Matrix.” Naturally, this American adaptation had the unenviable task of honoring its highly regarded source material while still managing to be different enough to justify its existence. The 2017 rendition primarily succeeds in this respect.    Read more

Protect Your Property

Jasmine Brogden, Staff Writer~

Not long ago, you may have heard about a house vandalized or burglarized on campus. It
caused residential students to worry.

Some students expressed a fear of the same occurring to them. However, that is not
exactly the truth.

The rumored invasion was not an invasion at all. It was a result of fraternities taunting one another. Although it is not a true burglary, our Campus Safety and Security staff have to count it that way. Read more

She Said: Should’ve Said No

Sarah Irby, Assistant Editor

If there’s one thing I’ll never fully understand, it’s cheating.

The way I see it, if you really love and care about someone, then you would never feel the need to betray them or risk your relationship with them just to share a few hot moments with another man or woman who, more times than not, doesn’t even really care about you. Read more

She Said: Single is the New Black

Sarah Irby ~ Copy Editor

So maybe you’re beginning to feel a little bit like me; you’ve been single for a hot minute, and you’re starting to wonder if you’ll be forever alone. Not to mention, you’re forced to see all these cutesy couples on Facebook, and if you’re anything like me, it just makes you want to throw up. Nobody cares that you’re in love after two days, Janet. These things can start to bring you down, but there’s a whole ton of reasons to embrace being single, and I’m here to be your messenger.
