On Sept. 9th, Armstrong hosted its very first farmer’s market in the courtyard just outside the Student Union. The farmer’s market was organized and presented by the Recreation and Wellness Department and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Megan Feasel, the director of the Student Recreational Center, said “We think it’s important for students to have access to healthy food and information about how to eat healthy and local.”
The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) released the Division II Top 25 Preseason Poll over this past weekend, ranking the Armstrong men’s golf team in 9th place overall. The GCAA is a non-profit organization that strives to increase the awareness and status of collegiate golf. Through the poll, the golf team received a total of 240 points, this is the first time the Pirates have received a preseason rank in the Top 10 since 2005.

Anyone and everyone can complain about the unoriginal and miniscule effort that our school cafeteria, The Galley, has to offer. We can all complain about the quality and how it has made us sick to our stomachs and the sort. However, this is not my topic of discussion about the infamous school cafeteria.

Often times I hear the questions, “What is it?” or “What is in it?” and the confident answer “I don’t know!” This is what needs to be changed.
