The U.S. that we all know and love (at least most of the time) has been built off one very important thing: immigration. Most of the nation's citizens are descendants of people who immigrated to the country, many of whom didn’t do so politely or legally. Yes, I’m talking to you, Andrew Jackson. Our Founding Fathers were not even familiar with the idea of illegal immigration because during the 18th century, it simply did not exist. Still, this era was a pivotal time for our country as a whole, and it makes me wonder when immigration became so bad.

When the Olympics start, I put all other television programs and movies aside. For two weeks, the games are my only true form of entertainment.

Mostly, though, I love watching the opening ceremony and seeing athletes from countries around the world come together.

By now, everybody has heard at least once that defense wins championships.

Greeted by the most energetic home crowd of the season, the Grand Valley State men’s basketball team needed whatever boost they could get against the Ashland Eagles (17-9 overall, 10-8 GLIAC) to keep on the path to a playoff berth.

Before the season even began, there was one goal the Grand Valley State men’s basketball team set to accomplish: qualify for the GLIAC Tournament.
Not only did the Lakers finally qualify for the postseason, but they did so on Senior Day, demolishing the Tiffin Dragons (7-19 overall, 3-15 GLIAC) 84-62 on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the GVSU Fieldhouse Arena. With the victory, GVSU improves to 14-12 (9-9 GLIAC), clinching a spot in the eight-team GLIAC Tournament.
