David Villalobos is either the bravest man in the world, or the most misinformed. I’m inclined to go with the latter.
“Becoming one with the tiger,” as he said was his desire when he jumped out of his train car on the monorail that travels over the Bronx River and through a forest that is part of the 265 acres that make up the Bronx Zoo, had to be a case of misinformation on his part.

I asked myself the other day if I knew what starvation felt like. The slow decay of the body as it eats itself until there is nothing left, the lack of energy and motivation, time slowing down and meaning nothing without food. I thought about if I knew what that felt like. I tried imagining the Oxford Dictionary’s listings of starvation; I used every bit of imagination I had. I added adjectives in front of starvation to create abstract meanings: intellectual starvation, cultural starvation, artistic starvation.

As the echoes of winning the last two football games ring throughout campus, the anticipation for the Ole Miss-Texas game is slowly building around Oxford.

As the echoes of winning the last two football games ring throughout campus, the anticipation for the Ole Miss-Texas game is slowly building around Oxford. It has been 46 years since Texas and Ole Miss have faced off, and Longhorn fans have the people of Oxford expecting one of the most exciting games in a while. From Batesville to Oxford, hotels are completely booked for the weekend, and everyone is expecting herds of Longhorns to come through Oxford starting on Thursday.

Many accounts of the patch of grass situated in the middle of our campus bring to mind William James’ description of an ineffable religious experience: Often those writing about the Grove contest that the experience cannot be properly put into words.

Another crop of freshmen have made the journey from their homelands to Oxford. Once again, about half of them are from Houston and Dallas.
As I have split my life between New Orleans, Oxford and Dallas, I think I have a helpful perspective about Texans in Oxford. I’ve heard rumor that Texans can be obnoxious and irritating with our pride about our home state. I have a few tips to help these Texans make a smooth transition between the Once and Future Republic of Texas and Oxford.
Call Texas “The Once and Future Republic of Texas.”

Living in the age of social networks, it's easy to find several local business pages to "Like." Some businesses, however, steer clear of or seldom update their Facebook pages and only update their business websites, so interested customers are not notified of daily deals, special discounts or new stock. 
Steven Gilbert, creator of www.heyoxford.com has remedied this.

I should make clear at the beginning of this column that I am not vegan, and I’ve never had any interest in being vegan until I moved in with a family who is vegan. Well, the wife/mother of the family is vegan; her husband identifies himself as “plant strong.” All the same, I have been thrust into the world of veganism for the summer, and to be honest, I’m loving every minute of it. I haven’t had tofu yet (that I’m aware of), but I have had some fabulous food.

Good nutrition does not come cheap. Students at Oxford and Lafayette County schools will experience this first hand when meal prices increase by 25 cents this fall.
Oxford Superintendent Brian Harvey said he is not worried that the rise in costs will deter families from buying school lunches.
“When you talk about paying $2.25 for a lunch, that’s still a pretty good deal,” Harvey said. “You can’t eat for that anywhere else.”

I’m going to be radical for a few seconds and say that I believe teens should have to work. I’m going to draw up a hypothetical program that I believe will benefit teens, businesses and the state. I’m going to call it Teen’s Out Working (TOW).

While drinking my coffee and reading the usual morning fare, I happened upon an article in the Washington Post that intrigued me: Summer myths, such as one shouldn’t swim for 30 minutes after eating, are bunk. How can it be bunk? I’ve heard that my whole life.

The freshman fifteen. Everyone has heard of it, and some people are having a difficult time overcoming dreaded college weight gain.

The small, pleasant town of Oxford will be a relaxing, lazy place in midsummer. Most students will be enjoying their laid-back schedule, tak- ing a few classes and maybe squeezing in some pool time. But on June 29, one group of students will set out from Oxford, leaving school and boredom behind, for a weekend of adventure.

 

The small, pleasant town of Oxford will be a relaxing, lazy place in midsummer. Most students will be enjoying their laid-back schedule, tak- ing a few classes and maybe squeezing in some pool time. But on June 29, one group of students will set out from Oxford, leaving school and boredom behind, for a weekend of adventure.

These students will be among the lucky 10 who will be part of the Ole Miss Outdoors white water rafting trip on the Ocoee River. Perfectly placed in mid-summer, the trip will take place from June 29 to July 1.
