For many of LU’s athletic teams it can be difficult to receive extra funding for competitions or even to get new equipment.

So far this year the U.S. has had 305 mass shootings. That number is astonishing within itself, but even more so when it is considered that we haven’t even had 300 days yet in 2015. This means we have had more than one shooting per day in this year alone.A lot of people want to turn these horrendous events into a conversation about gun control or mental health.

In a conversation with a peer here at Lindenwood, we were discussing how great it isthat our new university president, Michael Shonrock, has been out interacting with the students.
