Phi Kappa Literary Debate Society’s Bro. Stalcup will be presenting the resolution Be It Hereby Resolved: Birth Control Should Be Available To 13-Year Olds Without Parental Consent this Thursday at 7 pm. Bro. President Wheeler will be negating. With issues of women’s rights and birth control dominating the headlines more than ever, don’t miss Phi Kappa debate this relevant and contentious topic. All guests are encouraged to speak.
For the span of Phi Kappa Literary Society’s packed Anniversary Meeting last weekend, time seemed briefly suspended. Storied alumnus of the recent and (less recent) past bonded with their active siblings over their favorite PK memories. The resolution BIHR: The Income Tax Is A Fair Form Of Taxation failed to pass by only one vote after a rousing debate. By meeting’s end, Bro. King had outlined his plans for his future progeny to rule the world, Bro. Worley and Sis. Oberg had done their part to bridge the gap between the science and literary worlds, and Sis. Nelson, in a rare victory for Wikipedia, presented a warning against putting all your research faith in government websites.
I encourage everyone, both young and old, to check out this book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. As a college student, I have come to appreciate success and the joys that accompany it. This book covers some of the greatest topics on this subject and I encourage everyone to check it out.

Most of us have had at least one teacher who found a way to poetically breathe life into the subject they were teaching, even if that subject happened to be sixth-grade algebra.
Most of us have had at least one teacher who instilled a sense of embarrassment so deep that it went beyond having our heads weighed down by dunce caps, our essays saturated in red ink, our bladders unrelieved by bathroom breaks. That shame inhabited our very souls.
Which method is the most effective could be the subject of debate.
Thankfully, Phi Kappa Literary Society’s Sister Fuller will be presenting Be It Hereby Resolved: Embarrassment Is The Best Teacher this Thursday at 7 pm. Brother Summer will be negating.
