Conestoga Club works on "The Bush" and Sponsors Earth Day Festival

April 16, 2010

The Conestoga Club is a club to be recognized.

They are working wonders with the vegetation along the Conestoga River. Originating in the 1990s, Dr. Ambler, the head of the Conestoga Club here at Millersville University, and Professor of Biology explains the ongoing effort the club puts forth to keep the environment enriched. According to Dr. Ambler “The Bush along the Conestoga River was once a farm pasture in the 1950s and now has grown into a forest. This is a natural process called succession and called ‘old field succession’ when abandoned farmland becomes a forest again.” . . .

Pride at MU: Coming out as a Bisexual

April 8, 2010

I am a bisexual female and I have not come out to the majority of people in my life. While most of the people who I have come out to have been accepting, some people responded negatively. I want to share some of these reactions and let you inside so you know how I have been affected. I do this in the hopes that you will think before reacting negatively if a friend comes out to you. . . .

All About the MU Ciné Club

April 8, 2010

Maybe you like to watch a movie and forget about it, or maybe you love to discuss the contents of what you have invested your time in watching. Perhaps you prefer to see a movie only once, or you have lists of movies you could watch repeatedly. Regardless of your individual movie-viewing quirks, it is hard to find a college student who does not enjoy watching movies. . . .

PRANKOLOGY: Pranks Become Students Favorite Memories

April 8, 2010

Have you ever woken up to the sound of dozens of alarm clocks going off around you, as you quickly try to find every single ticking time bomb disturbing your sleep? Or run out the door you hit a barrier of plastic wrap sealing the doorway? When you look at the time, the time on your phone is set an hour ahead of the clocks you’ve noticed in public places. As your phone starts ringing, how did your ringtone get switched to “Achy Breaky Heart? Only your best friends know the one sound you might hate more than the voice of Miley Cyrus is that of her one hit wonder father. . . .

Most Legendary April Fools Jokes of

April 7, 2010

We have all heard our friends brag over their best pulled pranks, our school’s senior pranks and even our siblings who brag year after year at holiday dinners about their pranks from five years back. I had a few pranks pulled once as well, one year I hid the coffee from my mom on April fools day and made her go on a wild goose chase to find it. Lets just say she was not very happy to do a scavenger hunt at 5 a.m. and even more fuming when she was late for work. We had a few pranks in my school as well, we let three pigs loose and they were numbered from one to four. Get it? There were only three pigs labeled one, two, and four, they spent all day looking for number three. Hey what can I say, I graduated from hick high in Southern Lancaster County. Here’s some April Fools Day pranks that you might not have heard about: . . .

Pride at MU: I'm not gay, can't I have pride?

March 12, 2010

Pride is not exclusive to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender community. As a straight advocate, I am proud to show my pride. I am very open with my advocacy. My pride is shown in the events that I participate in. I do not hide that I am a supporter. I mention Allies almost every day. It is a part of who I am. It always will and always has been.

A life with autism: Temple Gradin to lecture

March 4, 2010

Millersville University is known for an intensive and comprehensive education program. And as I walked into my first education class four years ago, Cheryl Desmond’s words stuck with me as soon as I heard them: “People first language, always put your students first.” As I approach the ending of my career at Millersville as an Education Major, nothing could be more true. As I student teach and interact with students on a daily basis I am more than thankful for her kind and encouraging words. Students need encouragement and compassion, and that is just a gem of everything Millersville has taught me about education.
