Eye for Detail

Lydia Wieczorek, Staff Reporter

March 18, 2018

When it debuted in 2003, ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’ capitalized on the image of the outwardly prosperous gay man that insisted high-quality handbags should match high-quality inner lives, offering up an inspirational, aspirational symbol for Americans gay and straight alike. The Netflix...

Horizon makes mistakes

IUS Horizon

December 5, 2008

Dear Editors, Readers know that The Horizon is a forum for aspiring journalists, and, therefore, expect to see a range of writing styles, points of view and even some mistakes. However, multiple factual inaccuracies in a single article are unacceptable, even for a student newspaper. The “I am an adult,...

Adult Student Center open to all

IUS Horizon

December 5, 2008

Dear Editors, Adult or not, all of us make mistakes from time to time. However, the broadcast editor, “I am an adult, thank you,” Elle Morgan,  needs to do some research before putting her opinions out there before the public.  I cannot imagine where Morgan got her information that the Adult Student...

Education can’t be bought

IUS Horizon

November 15, 2008

I recently overheard one of my classmates lamenting her poor performance in a course.  She said that it wasn’t fair for her professor to fail her when she had spent so much money on tuition and books for the class. I beg to differ. Education must be earned, not bought. Read More »...

Video game shopping is stressful

IUS Horizon

November 15, 2008

I think the video game industry hates me. Seriously, they must. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t make it so absurdly difficult for me to purchase the games I enjoy and want. How am I supposed to buy all the video games I want, buy holiday presents, and live all at the same time? I’ll tell you. I...

Some jokes aren’t funny

IUS Horizon

November 8, 2008

Barack Obama won the presidential election by a landslide. The people have spoken. It was time for change and electing Obama is going to be the change people need. I’m happy my vote was heard and I’m excited to see what he will do in these tough economic times. Read More »...

The fool at the table

IUS Horizon

November 8, 2008

There is a fool at every table, and if you can’t find them, then it is probably you. That is an interesting poker analogy, but it is fun to broaden that to everyday life. And better yet, you can substitute the word fool for more interesting words. I will just let you use your imagination on that. R...

Pay attention, kids

IUS Horizon

November 2, 2008

When this issue of The Horizon is distributed, Election Day will be but hours away. While this weekly newspaper is still on the rack, we will know who our next president will be. This is the quiet before the storm. Read More »...

Agreeing to disagree

IUS Horizon

November 2, 2008

I am among the ranks of those who are ready for this election season to come to an end. No matter who wins or loses, it’ll be nice to stop seeing so much airtime eaten up by people who certainly approve of messages about their opponents. Read More »...

We won’t be silenced

IUS Horizon

October 25, 2008

Censorship, in all of its forms, is something we take very seriously. Shortly after delivering The Horizon for the week of Oct. 20, I was told all of the newspapers in the newsstand across from the student organizations were missing. Read More »...

Titles deserve ink

IUS Horizon

October 25, 2008

The Horizon printed Jacob Korff’s name in the Police Blotter last week. We printed that he was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. And, for the first time with any Blotter inclusion, we included his title, Student Government Association vice president. And we make no apologies for it....
