T. Elliot Gaiser

Single, sunburned, and stronger for it

As you know, this is the last edition of The Collegian. There are three lessons I gained here at Hillsdale. I wanted to share them before I leave. While they are by no means exhaustive, I think there is some wisdom in them. I hope you find them useful, as I have.

Q&A: Jessica Guertin

This week, The Collegian sat down with Jessica Guertin, a senior history major who plays third base for the Hillsdale College softball team. We asked her about her love of the sport, why she chose Hillsdale, and where she will go next.

Q &A: Blake Scott

Junior Blake Scott is studying international business and Spanish. He is also the president of the firearms club and captain of the Hillsdale College shooting team, which just won the Division III national title.

Nothing to see in this mirror

In my mind, Tarsem Singh was one of the most creative directors of my generation. His 2006 film “The Fall” relies on unknown actors, rich colors, eclectic settings, and brilliant writing. We’re talking about stories within stories on par with “Primer” and “The Prestige” and an “every shot a pearl” quality that makes the entire piece like an uninterrupted music video.

Improv troupe a hilarious outlet for students

Whether in acting or public speaking, humor is both a way to engage the audience and to lift them out of the mundane, according to the students of Misdirection, Hillsdale College’s improvisation club.

Choose good principles, not “good men”

The fundamental conservative belief is this: people don’t change from then to now. From the Garden of Eden to the Garden State, human nature has been the same. Since the dawn of time, a good man has been hard to find.

Q & A: Scott Lantis

Scott Lantis is the co-captain of the Hillsdale College baseball team. He is a junior studying marketing, born and brought up right here in Hillsdale County.

CCA wraps up

The Science Fiction Films of the 1950s CCA covered everything from the making of special effects to the political and philosophical underpinnings of the era. It also featured high-profile film critics such as Richard Schickel and four films from the era.

Q&A: Amanda Putt

Senior Amanda Putt will be graduating with a biology degree in May and getting married in June.

Q&A with Daniel Hannan: true conservatism and Roger Scruton

Daniel Hannan is a British politician, journalist and author. He is a member of the European Parliament, representing South East England for the Conservative Party. He also serves as the Secretary-General of the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists. The Collegian caught up with him at CPAC to talk about conservatism in the West.
