In these cold coronavirus times, many students at Iowa State have spent much more time in their dorms than ever before. Whereas you would usua…
Late last year, I submitted a request to the Office of the President to have a named minor unit removed from the university, but you would not know it by looking at the request log. This minor unit was the distinguished alumni flag that bears Dennis Muilenburg’s name on it for his time as a vice president at Boeing Corporation. His time as vice president was not the extent of his career at Boeing.
We are soon entering the second year of this pandemic.

Over a week has passed since the historic 2020 presidential election, and America is at no shortage of discourse.
