Senior column: ‘Smile because it happened’

Some people claim that they chose their college because, “they knew in their heart,” or that, “it felt like home when they first stepped on campus.” That could not be any less true for me.

Golf’s cries have been answered, Tiger is back and competitive

Decades from now, every young golfer will only be able to hear and read about the legend of Eldrick Woods, the man universally known as “Tiger.” They will hear of his dominance: how he once won seven majors in a three-year span.
