“Dear Wilmington Swimming:” A Letter from a Senior

My older sister introduced us, and I thought you were okay, but not the one for me. From the time I was 14 to 18, I continued to go to every one of your meets, whenever I did not have a meet of my own. Finally, my senior year I gave you a chance and went zip-lining with you.

A Student’s Thoughts on the AmeriCorp Budget Loss

AmeriCorps NCCC is losing its budget soon. A generation of community service thrown out of the window because of our President who promised to ‘help’ America, somehow dissolving a federal program that promotes community service throughout the country doesn’t seem like help to me. AmeriCorps was an integral part of my life and many others. I spent 11 months with a team of 8 other individuals, I was able to travel to Vicksburg, Mississippi, Atlanta, Georgia, Sacramento, California, Fort Worth, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as well as all the…

Pets With a Purpose for WC Students

photo provided by Amber Walters Emotional Support Animals, or ESA’s for short, is a question I had fumbling around in my head for quite some time now. I’ve seen various students around campus with animals that are mostly dogs and a few cats as well as a weasel or ferret, I’m not sure which but who honestly knows the difference? (Disclaimer: It’s a ferret, which is a member of the weasel family). Seeing these animals around campus got me wondering, what are these things and why do students need them?…
