Worlds away

Last summer, I traveled to Mexico City to visit my extended family. I had not seen most of my relatives since I was 12. When I was waiting in line to board the airplane, I remember being a child sitting...

If you wear clothes that are out of the ordinary it stands out to people, but that doesn’t matter.

Finding my style

Harrison Hamre January 25, 2022

I have always cared about the clothes I chose to wear. As a kid I would dress up in a mix of random items ranging from superhero capes to ski goggles with a stethoscope around my neck and my custom yellow...

When it’s time to move on

On the corner of Pollard Drive in Tyler, Texas sits a charming little house. It’s nothing special – just a one-story brick house with a two-car garage and a well-kept garden. Just over the wooden fence...

The main course, and perhaps the most controversial at the dinner table is turkey. Should you deep fry or roast your turkey?

Let’s talk turkey

Whether you’re hosting the Thanksgiving feast, or heading to someone else’s house, your aunts and uncles will reminisce on the good old days, and the stories of their childhood Thanksgivings. They...

I remember long walks in the chilly fall evenings where he would quiz me over Beatles trivia. My dad is the reason I am obsessed with that band. Those memories are very close to me.

Split down the middle

Alanna Reed November 22, 2021

I quietly hated my name because it wasn’t Sue or Emily.

The girl on the box

Muna Nnamani November 17, 2021

The Girl on the Cra-Z-Loom bracelet box had cerulean eyes. Her smile shone from the box, marked with confidence. Her thin, glossed lips framed pearly teeth. From the time my mom brought the box home,...

Staff editorial: Eating disorders affect all genders

The Marquee Staff October 25, 2021

The standard of beauty is often seen in our society as a girl’s issue. However, from a young age, boys are pressured to look a certain way too. They are expected to be muscular, tall and lean. When they...

Column: Me, my brother and The ‘Burbs

Harrison Hamre October 25, 2021

I love that a movie, no matter how “low brow” or strange it is, can connect people. It can remind them of a specific time in their life, an experience or a memory. Most people have a movie they’ve...

Jack then roamed the earth using a coal in a turnip he carved to guide him. People then began carving their own turnips and pumpkins. The term “Jack of the Lantern” was born, and evolved into, “Jack o’ lantern.” 

Haunting history

Marley Roberson October 21, 2021

Trick-or-Treating Most people don't know why we trick-or-treat, carve pumpkins or even dress up for halloween.  Many don't know that Halloween, and many of the traditions that come with it, started...

Column: Written as people

Hyunsung Na October 21, 2021

In my room sat this giant plastic box of toys. It was supposed to hold clothes but instead it held every single action figure I ever had. We didn’t even keep a lid on it because it wouldn’t fit. During...

I never had the body that other guys had on social media. My explore page would always be full of guys that looked like bodybuilders.
