The Hockhocking Adena Bikeway transported my pedal-playmate Dandelion and I to the Nelsonville Music Festival — my first since its inception seven years ago. It was nice to have a pedal-partner again; sure beats the hell out of solo cycling.
After attending the screening of The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks and Amer Ahmed’s lecture “Islam: Beyond the Myths, Breaking Down the Barriers” on Ohio University’s campus in the last few weeks, I feel I have received a thorough grounding in both sides of today’s heated debate about the legitimacy of Islamophobia.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock or came to Athens yesterday, you know at least something about the Student Senate elections. We’ve all seen the signs, many have read about the candidates and some have attended the debates.

When a girl like me is rejected by a boy, she often resorts to certain measures she will likely not admit to anyone, even herself.

With the rise of music websites such as Datpiff and 2DopeBoyz, it is a lot easier for aspiring rappers to release their music to the public.
Athens voters have a choice today, and I’m not talking about the Athens City Council candidates. I am referring to Issue 1, which deals with the renewal of the Athens City Schools’ tax levy.
For a moment, transport yourself to the eastern part of the Congo, specifically to Kivu. The area surrounding you is picturesque, filled with diverse people and rich in mineral resources.
Last Tuesday, Ron Paul announced he has formed an exploratory committee to decide whether or not to run for president. Now I have a reason to sit through the painfully laborious Republican debates. The only event that rivals the levels of irrelevance and philosophical vacuity is, of course, the Democratic debates.
Note: This is part one of a two-part series on college stereotypes. Next week’s column will feature female stereotypes.

So I’ve talked about local issues, local history, local events. But imagine coming to Ohio University and not knowing anything about local issues, not because you’re new to Athens, but because you’re new to the United States. I am referring to international students.
