This past Thursday, some of the teachers of Spring Hill College took part in the GreenKeepers’ Pepper Your Professor. This event is a fundraiser that the GreenKeepers created to help raise money for their club. The rules have changed a bit since the last event but the idea is still the same: Students put money into a jar with a professor’s name on it; the amount of money in each professor’s jar determines how many peppers they must attempt to eat.

On Oct. 26, singer/songwriter and actress Taylor Swift Tweeted, Facebooked, and Instgramed: “IT’S OUT IT’S OUT IT’S OUT. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. GO GO GO.” If you don’t know what she was referring to all you had to do was check out iTunes and watch her fifth album, 1989, climb to the number one spot.

“I knew it was going to be a good album when she released her first single, “Shake it Off”, and I was right. She delivered,” says senior Jill Taliancich. “Shake it Off”, which was released on Aug. 18, was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a week.

Rugby is one of the most popular sports in the world, yet it hasn’t entirely caught on in the United States. Rugby has found its way back into the Summer Olympics and the Rugby World Cup is coming up next year and will take place in England.

Rugby is often overlooked as a sport but it is one of the toughest and intense sports in the world. Did you know George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Chris Farley all played rugby? I also bet you didn’t know Russell Crowe, Gerard Butler, or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson played as well.
