Marvel Studios confirmed last Friday that Bradley Cooper will voice the character Rocket Raccoon in the upcoming superhero action film Guardians of the Galaxy, which will hit theaters next summer.
As I was reading my social media news feed this week, I noticed a number of my friends — and Ohio University itself — beaming over the fact that OU had been ranked second among universities where students “get the best bang for their buck.” Now, there are a lot of things I love about OU, but affordability is not one of them, so naturally I was skeptical of such a claim.
My name is Sophie Kruse, and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s about that time again — college football season is upon us. Undoubtedly, the biggest story heading into the 2013 season is the cloud of scandal following Texas A&M University star quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

Three years of my college experience at OU and all I can say is: time sure does fly.
Welcome back to Athens.
Welcome back to campus — and welcome to Page 2 of The Post!
We’re a little sad to be going. We’ve enjoyed telling you all about the beers to drink and the beers to avoid. We’ve enjoyed getting together every week to revisit an old favorite or take a risk on new brew. It’s been a wonderful experience. But this experience is nowhere near as wonderful as taking that first, refreshing gulp of Natural Light.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past 15 weeks … I couldn’t tell you what it is.
Though only about two weeks remain until summer, this past weekend I went home. My grandparents from the Netherlands, whom I haven’t seen in about four years, came to visit and meet their two great-granddaughters who were born in December and February.
The morning was my time for coffee, a cigarette and a song. My time of paradise before my first class, but only with the sun on my face. When it’s warm, it’s ecstasy.

But it was always the song that set off the morning right.
A lot of wise women have said a lot of wise words about what feminism is. Ani DeFranco, a pretty cool folk musician, summed it up pretty nicely: “My idea of feminism is self-determination, and it’s very open-ended: every woman has the right to become herself, and do whatever she needs to do.”
About a week and a half ago, on April 14, one of professional golf’s biggest tournaments of the season came to a close. The 2013 Masters Golf Tournament was held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. History was made with Adam Scott winning over Angel Cabrera in an intense playoff to decide who would win the coveted green jacket. Scott became the first Australian competitor to win the Masters.
Well, friends, here we are at the end of another semester. As I look out the barred window of this cop car at the verdant landscape of College Green, I can’t help but reflect on what a great time I’ve had here at Ohio University. I’ve made friends, learned a lot about life and had more fun than I ever thought possible.
I don’t mean to sound all Glinda the Good Witch, but you can all come out now!
