Finally summer has arrived; time to recharge for fall
by Western Herald
Jan 01, 2009
“The time for afternoons on the beach, lounging around the pool, sand volleyball and soccer games, camping and rafting trips, and sunbathing is here. This wonderful time I speak of is the one and only ... summer! Summer is my favorite season and this is partially because my birthday is in the summer so, a shout out to all the summer birthdays.”

Caffeine presents a double-edged sword
by Western Herald
Apr 20, 2008
“Finals week has arrived for universities across the country - and with that comes the age-old tradition of cramming months worth of classwork into one night of studying with the aid of high-caffeine beverages. But is it possible that your fourth triple-espresso actually has a negative effect on your studying?
"I'm so busy with my major, I have to have my cup of coffee before I sit down to study at night," said Lisa Della Pia, 19, a freshman majoring in music.”

Enjoy summer break, pretty soon you won't have them
by Western Herald
Apr 20, 2008
“Finals week is once again upon us, and as slowly as the week will pass for those of us with far more tests than we care to take, summer break is just around the corner. The next four months may provide an opportunity to live life without obligation, and that's an occasion that shouldn't be passed up.”

Kahn's big shot a super senior moment
by Western Herald
Apr 20, 2008
“Five years ago, Western Michigan University introduced Steve Hawkins as the new head coach of the Bronco men's basketball team.
That same year, I stepped foot on WMU's campus as a freshman.
I have been around athletics for all five years. I have seen great teams play and some not-so-great teams play.”

Shoot for 6 hours of sleep while cramming
by Western Herald
Apr 20, 2008
“Students who find themselves cramming during finals may also find that depriving themselves of sleep may cause more harm than they think.
Lisa Marshall, a physician at Sindecuse Health Center, said sleep is very important for learning and memory. Marshall said that the general requirement for appropriate sleep time is eight hours, but she said that some people need less.”

Bronco sports a big part of WMU life
by Western Herald
Apr 20, 2008
“When I was a senior in high school filling out my bracket for the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament, I was excited to see Western Michigan University as a No. 11 seed playing against the University of Vanderbilt. Before, I had heard some things about the Bronco athletic teams, but growing up outside of Lansing and coming here for the following fall semester, I didn't have high expectations for the Brown and Gold to have much success in any sport.”
