  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Athletic Department to raffle off iPads

The BG Athletics Department is raffling off an iPad for every 2,500 students who attend Saturday’s Homecoming football game against the University of Massachusetts Minutemen.

“I’m so impressed with the student support of Falcon Athletics,” Director of Athletics Chris Kingston said. “The student support has been powerful at soccer, volleyball as well as football. In recognition of the student support, we want to both reward and incentivize attendance by giving away an iPad.”

The athletics department will be continuing this event at the remaining football games against the University of Toledo Rockets on Oct. 26 and the Ohio University Bobcats on Nov. 12.

This is a new promotion available for students and Kingston is new to the concept in attempt to get more students out to support BG athletic teams.

“This isn’t something I’ve done before at my previous institutions,” Kingston said. “I appreciate the passion of the students and their support. It’s both two-fold, to reward and to incentivize.”

This is not the first time that the Athletic Department has encouraged students to come out and support the Falcons. Earlier in the season, tickets and transportation to the BG football team’s first two away games at Kent State University and Indiana University were made available to students for free.

“We traveled with some students to both Kent State and Indiana, and they make a difference,” Kingston said. “They make a difference at volleyball, we beat Northern Illinois [University] in three sets. So, students make a difference.”

The Homecoming football game against the Mid-American Conference opponent UMass Minutemen is set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff. The following home football game against the University of Toledo Rockets on Oct. 26 does not yet have a kickoff time set, but the final home game against the Ohio University Bobcats on Nov. 12 is set for a 7:30 p.m. start.
