‘Deadpool’ is a must-see, fresh take on superhero films

By Carlito Gilchrist, Contributing Writer

I’m not 100% sure if people know about a little film that came out recently called Deadpool, and I’m not 100% sure if those who have heard of it are on the fence of seeing it or not. Well, if you aren’t planning on seeing this highly recommended brawling, slicing, frolicking, head banger of a popcorn munching movie, then you need a sign that says “I’m boring,” so the rest of everyone knows who you really are in the black void that would be your soul.

I’m not going to review this movie with the intention of showing off my deep passion for filmmaking so to whoever reads this can be enticed to use my thoughts and ideas and pass it off to their friends so they think they actually learned something. If you already took your ‘buddy ol’pal’ or your significant other to ride the ride and be thrilled by the thrill that this movie is, then to you good sir or ma’am, I give two thumbs and two big toes way up!

What you need to know to tackle your FAFSA

By Daniel Morgan, Advertising Manager

It’s that time of year again: FAFSA time! The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) became available to students for the 2016-2017 school year on Jan. 1, 2016.

The reason that college students and their families must fill out the FAFSA forms every year is to determine one’s EFC, Expected Family Contribution, by asking questions regarding a family’s employment status and income. All of this information is used to figure out how much financial aid a student is eligible for from a college or university, including grants, loans, and work-study.
