Super Bulldog Weekend is this weekend, April 12-14. Did you ever wonder how students on MSU's campus feel about this weekend?

Football is BACK!

The spring football game gives us a glimpse of fall. We are here to see how our team will be this year and what Joe Moorhead has in store for us. Davis Wade is opened back up, and we get to experience a small piece of game days at MSU.

Baseball - All. Weekend. Long.

The newly renovated Dudy Noble Field is now known as the Carnegie Hall of Baseball, and if you visit it, you know exactly why. This field transformed an MSU student's baseball game experience. This weekend, many MSU students will experience Dudy Noble for the first time at Super Bulldog Weekend.

Cotton District Arts Festival - Take me NOW!

This is the biggest festival that takes place in Starkville. Tons of vendors are set up all around the Cotton District. Everything is handmade, and the items for sale are so versatile. Products are made in different countries and states around the world. There is live music, fresh food, and fun times with friends. The Cotton District Arts Festival is definitely the place to be on Saturday morning.

Is it time to sample the pigs yet?!

Friday starts the pig cooking, and many people will participate to cook their pig in the best way. Saturday, they will all be judged, and that afternoon, they're up for sampling! Grab your friends and go pick your favorite!

Do you want to tailgate with me??

The junction is opened, and we get to taste tailgating in the spring. It is just the same as in the fall, only slightly cooler. Bring your tent and join us!

It's like spring homecoming!

That is exactly what it is. Fans, friends, and families fill the stands at every event. Old friends meet up, and new friends are made. Past memories and experiences are remembered, while new traditions are begun.

Please don't rain!!!

Most importantly, we don't want it to rain. Raining means all the sporting, arts, and cooking events are canceled or postponed, and we can't enjoy these great events our university has put on. We will be constantly checking the weather.

Super Bulldog Weekend is definitely a weekend to remember as a Bulldog. Everything that our university and city has to offer is on display. Anyone that comes is likely to find something that they like to participate in. So, if you don't have weekend plans, head to Starkville and join us for the 34th annual Super Bulldog Weekend!

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
