Honoring the honors students: Shift from recognition night to honors banquet has some students leery
By Zachary Hendershott
For the last several years, Craig graduates have gathered together at the end of the spring semester to be recognized for their academic achievements. Students, faculty, and staff would dress up in regalia. The community orchestra would play processional pieces just for the occasion. Students would be called up one by one, have their achievements listed, walk across a stage, and be congratulated by Craig Campus Dean Gene Bilodeau and President John Boyd. It was a very regal and honorable affair for all involved.
This year, however, the Craig recognition night is being put aside for an even more honorable event: a banquet held in honor of all academically exceptional Craig students. It will be an exclusive, catered banquet for only those outstanding students and their families. › Continue reading

By Jasmine DeFreitas
If you’ve ever watched “Ace of Cakes,” then you know this is one Food Network show that stands out on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 8 p.m. The individuals on this show are creative, kooky and just plain funny.
“Ace of Cakes” is a fun show, and probably the biggest rival is “Cake Boss” on TLC. What stands out between the two shows is the amount of drama.
No offense, but if I wanted to see drama, even Italian style drama, I’d either go watch a bunch of students in middle and high school, or pick up a movie about the Mafia. › Continue reading

My dad and I have had a rocky relationship for the past six years and if you know my family then you would know that was the truth. I remember when I was little and he would attack me with kisses or tickle my neck with his beard while I screamed for Mom to help. Those were the days, when all I had to worry about was what Barbie was marrying Ken and what color the sky was going to be in my coloring book.
But once I turned 13 I changed. Dad was no longer my hero and Mom just made me mad because she wouldn’t let me hang out with my friends. › Continue reading

The holidays are here again, Spartans! As students leave CNCC for a much anticipated break, the time has come to fuse campus life together with the family and friends back home. Some are pulling out their piercings and wearing a turtleneck to hide the tattoo from that crazy night in Junction.
Others are building bridges and introducing new lifetime friends to those who matter most. On the other hand, a few Spartans have some ‘splaining to do about their “extracurricular activities” with certain significant others left behind.
A college education is truly something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, but what to share with Gramps around the cranberry sauce is entirely up to you. For all you Spartans spending quality time with loved ones this holiday break, have a great time and enjoy this edition of Ask Angel! › Continue reading
