With the simple act of a click of a button, you can capture the perfect moment in a second that can be stored forever in the safety of your smartphone or cloud storage. But before the convenience of a high-quality camera shoved in your back pocket, people had to make the decision of which moments to capture because film was expensive. They had one shot to capture it, take the time to print them out, and then glue them into their photo album.

Which begs the question of why do these pictures feel so different from those saved on our…


  1. How does your understanding of communication impact your understanding of God?

One thing that has stuck with me through the years in regarding communication and God is how God spoke the earth into being. I could have just thought it, or snapped his fingers or anything else. But instead he spoke it. Not only does the Father speak, God believes words are so important He uses John to describe His Son, Jesus Christ, as “The Word” (John 1:1). Jesus is later told by Peter that He alone “has the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). …


My journey as a communications arts major started sophomore year of College, due to the fact that my whole first year I was lost in what I wanted to study for the rest of my years at Gordon. I decided upon communications because of its broadness of many different types and I felt secure in knowing I would continue to have time to sort myself out with in Communications while at the same time knowing I had steadily declared a major. Throughout my Communications classes for the next 2 years leading up to now I feel like I have just…


Pro-Report Interview

I had the pleasure of talking to Nicole Stivaletta, the creative supervisor for The Martin Group, an agency that works with big companies such as Adidas and Wegman’s.

She worked her way up and is now the creative supervisor designing as well as overseeing and working…


A coyote howled outside, or it could have just been the wind, either way it didn’t affect me in any way. I laid there on my side upon the red carpet, my fingers running through the carpet fibers. They left a trail in their wake as I dragged them back and forth, as I do this my ring catches on the carpet. I tug it and the ring tears from the now longer piece of thread, I look around seeing if anyone notices and push the strand into the carpet. No one is ever paying attention to me. I begin…


Cultural appropriation is a term that isn’t often heard in daily conversation, which means it’s inevitably misunderstood and can feel hard to get a handle on. Writer Maisha Z. Johnson states that cultural appropriation is a, “power dynamic in which members of a dominant culture take elements from a culture of people who have been systematically oppressed by that dominant group.” To expand upon that, “culture appropriation” often occurs when others are lacking a real understanding of why the original culture took part in these activities or the meanings behind these activities. As a result, this act alters the value…


Gordon college’s ongoing response persists through a range of coronavirus safeguards and COVID-19 testing, as the school continues the call to “love your neighbor.”

As September ends and the color of the leaves begin to change, the ongoing combat against the coronavirus does not. Gordon college’s safety procedures have remained strong as students maintain the six-feet distance in class and social areas, as well as wearing masks when in a public space.

Although, where this remains constant throughout almost all colleges throughout the nation, there are a variety of approaches regarding COVID-19 testing strategies, ranging from frequent universal testing to…
