Should College Students go on Trips during Spring Break? By Brianna Hanson For college students, Spring Break is the best time of the year. I don’t blame them. Who doesn’t love having a week off from school around the same time every year? Some students don’t travel anywhere during that week off from school and just work all week to make extra money. Most students unfortunately don’t think that way and hop on a plane to someplace warmer and more fun. College students should make their decision to travel or not during Spring Break based on their budget. If they have a reliable job to keep them in good financial standings when they return, I wouldn’t see why they wouldn’t go somewhere with their friends. Students come to NDSCS from many different places all over the United States to attend college. Some live down the block from campus, but others do not. I think that if a student is going home to see their family over Spring Break, because they haven’t seen them since they started school, they should go as long as they have the opportunity to do so. I would say that is the only time it is acceptable to let parents pay for a trip after someone has graduated high school. A lot of students try to take advantage of their parents’
money and get through life not paying for anything. I think this is wrong in so many ways. If someone isn’t responsible enough to have a job and pay for their own things, they shouldn’t be going on trips anyways. It
That doesn’t mean their parents can’t help them out a little every once in a while, because they have no gas in their car to go places or they need something for one of their class projects. If someone is working and trying to

doesn’t matter if your parent’s are the richest farmers in North Dakota or if they are poor and are working their butts off to make ends meet every month. If they are an adult, they should treat their parents and family with respect and not expect anything in return. If someone is one of those students who take classes full time and works part time, they definitely deserve a trip if they can afford it. If they are dedicated to their work and school, they are most likely a responsible and independent student.
do their best to be financially stable, they will understand. When someone goes into the real world after they graduate college, they can’t just take trips whenever they can get time off from work, especially if they have no money. It is better to take trips less often, I can guarantee you will appreciate and enjoy it a lot more than someone who takes trips every couple of months. It is also less stressful when someone is planning a trip, if they know they won’t be in debt after they come back.

Cat’s Intramural Leagues There are a lot of different sports that students can participate in on campus. Many different leagues were invented for students who are not active in varsity sports participate in our college. These leagues were invented to have students participate in sports for fun, competition, friendly rivalry or just to relieve stress. There will be no judging or too tough of a competition. All students can participate and not feel embarrassed by their performance because NO varsity athlete can participate in the league that is actively playing in that sport. There is structure to these leagues; there will be referees, rules, teams and a five dollar
fee to have a team join. These sports take place and people can participate when they are in season. Sports:
Women volleyball & co-ed volleyball can choose
3 on 3 basketball or 5 on 5 basketball can choose
Co-ed softball or men’s softball
Co-ed Dodge ball

Dale Jr. led six times for a race high of about fifty-four laps, all after a six hour rain delay. In 2001 Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s dad, Dale Earnhardt Sr., died in a bad crash while racing. Since that day no one had driven the number three car until this year when Austin Dillon took over the number starting at the Daytona 500 race.

4. SWITCH FOODSAfter a hard workout, one should receive a small reward. Ice-cream, cookies, chips, and popcorn are all desired rewards. However, these are not healthy after a workout. Try using substitute foods that are healthier. Freezing bananas then blending them can create a healthy smoothie like drink that will taste amazing. Substitution honey for sugary treats can also help lower the calorie intake. A great substitute for chips would be dehydrated fruit or homemade potato chips (dehydrated potato slices). Instead of popcorn, try eating nuts. They are great snack that is also healthy.

School Workout Facilities Unknown Author Most of us have experienced the day when we wanted to work out, but maybe we didn’t have the money. There are a couple benefits for using a schools work out facility. For starters, the school may have an indoor track were students would be able to run during the winter or on rainy days. Having an indoor track may also give the school space for other events. Secondly, a school may have a weight room for students to use. A school providing a
weight room would save students money, so they wouldn’t have to pay other off campus companies to work out. Having the on campus weight room would also benefit any sports teams the campus may have. This would allow the team to work out together and possibly in there own privacy. Lastly, some students may not have a car at campus so this may provide them with an easier way to stay in-shape. If a student has easier access to a work out facility than they are more likely to use it. Having
the work out center on campus also might be a safer option. There could possibly be fewer accidents since students would be able to walk there. Also, it would allow a campus to regulate who can come and work out. These are just a few reasons of why colleges should have their own work out facilities, or if they do than here are some reasons of why you should use the facility.

Snowmobiling Accident Libbi Hasenwinkel I know that there are probably a lot of people here on our campus that enjoys going snowmobiling. And I bet there are some that like to go on trips to better places like the mountains in Montana, Wyoming or other places. Fun right? Well what if something happened while you were out there? What if you ran into a storm, an avalanche happened, or what if you got separated from your group? How would you handle that?
towards. A very skilled rescue team, consisting of 40 volunteers or more searched into the night taking shifts. Around 1 p.m. on Saturday they were found. They reported that they ran out of gas and took shelter. No medical attention was need, they were experi-
enced snowmobilers and were familiar with the mountains. One of the snowmobilers said that they used their spark plugs to start a fire. Another said that he wouldn’t be going back for a while after that.
among youth. Although drinking alcohol is illegal under the age of 21, people aged 12 to 20 years old drink 11% of alcohol consumed in the United States; 90% of those 11% consume alcohol in form of binge drinking.
brain development problems. A way to stop these risks from happening is there are signs of underage drinking people can recognize when interacting with another person. These signs include academic and/or behavioral problems in school, changing groups of friends, less interest in activities, alcohol on the breath, slurred speech, and more.
In Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains five North Dakota men went missing. On Thursday the 20th, the snowmobilers were last seen at 3:00 p.m. At 4:00 a.m. a search and rescue team was sent out to go search for them, having no idea what direction to go
In the snowmobiling season there are many reports of people going missing or avalanche reporting’s. Some are not as lucky as these five snowmobilers. So if you ever decided to go on a trip like this, make sure you know the area pretty well, you have enough gas, and you have the right equipment with. Be safe out there.
Underage Drinking Chelby Ward Today, alcohol use is extremely widespread among teenagers. Nearly three fourths of students have consumed alcohol by the end of high school, and more than a third have by eighth grade. Underage drinking is a major public health problem in today’s society. Alcohol has become the most commonly used and abused drug
Underage drinking has several risks. These risks include death, serious injuries, impaired judgment, increased risk for physical and sexual assault, and

Wildcat Sports Championship! Both or men’s and women’s teams started playoffs this week. The men’s team hosted Bismarck State here on Wednesday at 8:00pm at the BAC, while the women went to Williston and played Williston State at 6:00pm. This was just the first round. The men’s team secured the number two seed, so since they beat Bismarck State, they keep their number two seed and will travel to Williston State college
on Sunday March 2 and play at 4:00pm/ The women’s team on the other hand grabbed the number three seed and will now travel to Devil’s Lake and play Lake Region State College. Hopefully both teams can pull out some wins, because it is Region 13’s turn to host the district game. So wish them luck!! Softball is up and running. They are limited to practicing inside due to the snow out on the field still, but that
doesn’t stop them from getting some good practice in and working hard. They have a full roster and can’t wait to get some games and competition in. Hoping the wildcat’s can achieve another conference championship again!!
