A Look Through The Camera Lens
Her Tumblr page is overflowing with photographs of animals of different species, diverse landscapes, uniquely captured human moments and ordinary objects. What do these photos have in common? Jordan Richards is in every single one of them. While her golden-green eyes may not be the subject of every shot, they are the lenses through which these pieces of art were created.
Craig Sweeney: The Power Behind the Bat
Like many athletes, Craig Sweeney, an outfielder for the University’s baseball team, has been playing the game since he could only hit the ball off of a tee. However, as a senior in his fourth season with the Hawks, Sweeney has far surpassed his little league level skills.
A Home for the Homeless: Destiny’s Bridge
