Your Voice

And the Winner is . . .

For the second issue in a row, a member of the class of 1960 is taking home our essay contest prize.


As students enter a well-earned winter break, we got to thinking about those trips home.

Some international and out-of-state students find themselves too far from home to return over breaks. Oftentimes, roommates or close friends will invite them to stay with their families instead. And then there are the significant others…

Do you remember bringing a roommate, friend or significant other home to meet your family? Or were you that household guest?

Tell us about your experience.

The best essay wins an NWU duffel bag, for your next trip someplace new.
