Four years is a relatively short time, but the amount of memorable moments crammed in there is daunting. Every landmark has a fuzzy overlay of some crazy thing you did. As my […]

On the brink of Insanity: GU runner tries new workout

Wordplay in the workplace

On Nov. 3, 2010, I published a blog here on Edge called “Wordplay: I Love My Major, Write or Wrong.” More than two years later, I’m happy to report that this statement still holds true (if you substitute “Job” for “Major,” that is). I graduated from Gannon in the spring of 2011 with a degree […]
