Hilltoppers get first win of the season

By Cody Shook, Sports Editor

West Liberty football was on the road today at Urbana where they took on the Blue Knights in a Mountain East Conference matchup. The Hilltoppers got off to a slow start today as they were bombarded with penalties. Halfway through the first quarter Urbana got on the board with a wide up touchdown reception from nine yards out. A fumbled snap on the extra-point attempt led to an Urbana two point conversion to put them up 8-0 early.

West Liberty University’s very first Awesome Project has given all students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to improve the campus community. The Awesome Project was created last year by Professor Lou Karas’s Fund Raising and Grant Writing class in an effort to increase involvement at WLU. The total amount of funding for this project came to $1,250, and many students submitted ideas as to how the WLU campus could be improved with such funds.

As students go through the school year, they all have one thing in common that they have to do: term papers. Term papers and essays can be a burden for most college students, but what is worse is the printing process. One would think this is the easy part, but alas, it is not because some students do not have access to a printer. Here are some places that offer printing services to students at West Liberty University.

It’s time to ‘Fall’ into autumn

WLU fall

By Jessica Broverman, Contributing Writer

Summer is quickly ending and the crisp fall air is just around the corner. Each season has its own special feel and autumn tends to make us all feel comfy and warm, without the dreaded icy roads and freezing walks to class. Out of all the seasons, here is why I think fall is the best one of all.

There are so many creative and fun activities to experience during this season. You can take a walk through that pumpkin patch, make your own apple cider, and even make scary masks with your friends. My favorite craft for this season is definitely carving pumpkins.

By Walker Polivka, Contributing Writer

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards started off with a bang with a wonderful comedy bit by Jimmy Kimmel and friends. In the bit, Jimmy is going to be late for the Emmys and tries to find a ride. From singing carpool karaoke to Wake Me Up Before You Go Go with James Corden, learning how to run a clean campaign with Jeb Bush, or praying for a ride to the ‘god’ Oprah, he strives to make it to the Emmy Awards on time. He ends up hitching a ride to the Emmys on a dragon to make his hosting gig on time.

Suppose someone asked you what you could do with 48 hours? Many different answers could come to mind: you could write a paper, do research for a class project, procrastinate on homework – or you could make a short film. The last option may seem out of place, but creating a film in a short time is the premise of the Second Annual West Liberty 48-Hour Film Festival, which is set to screen at Marquee Cinemas, Sunday, Sept. 18.
