Students showcase creative and scholarly work at Undergraduate Research Symposium

Last Saturday afternoon in the HFA Recital Hall UMM fourth-year Reid Ronnander had thoroughly mesmerized his audience– with tedious mathematics. As Ronnander explained the research and development of an algorithm that generates musical scores with controllable levels of randomness and repetition, the jaws of audience members began to drop. Who knew math could be so fascinating?

UMMy's Return for the Ninth Year

The UMMys make a much appreciated comeback this year after the previous festival was canceled due to lack of submissions. This year, seven films were entered into the contest and allowed the UMMy judges to award a full range of awards, including a special award presented to a film of unique artistic merit. Unfortunately, the festival was missing the short film category (which happens from year to year). Although my memory of the film order may be faulty, the content stuck surprisingly well.

Cougars improve to 11-6 in conference with Tuesday wins

With just a handful of games remaining until UMAC Tournament play, the University of Minnesota, Morris softball team has found peak season form after rattling off five straight victories. The Cougars took care of business against the Bethany Lutheran College Vikings and the Martin Luther College Knights early on Tuesday, and defeated Crown College late with a convincing 12-3 win. After the back end of the Crown doubleheader this Wednesday, Morris closes out the regular season with two games versus the Vikings in Mankato.

What would Batman do? The Foolproof Model for My Life Decisions

As I grew into young adulthood and made my various life choices, I came to understand that a reliable role model is key for success. Being the smart person I am, I went with the logical choice: Batman.
I tested out this rule for decision-making during the spring of my senior year as I was deciding on a college to attend. It was between UMM and Wartburg College. I had landed on Wartburg, until I learned that they already had a resident vigilante. I immediately switched my enrollment to Morris to pursue a career as the only caped crusader in town.

Goodbyes worth more than handshakes, hugs, and kisses

I should be happier that it’s spring, but it has always been a bittersweet season for me. The color returns to nature, the wind doesn’t freeze your cheeks, and the bunnies and squirrels come out to play (and then proceed to run away from your attempts to love them.) However, there is a tinge of sadness to this fantastical, visceral, pleasant season. As much as spring is a warm and welcoming season, it is also a season of farewells.

Cougars UMAC Conference Champions

For the final series of Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) play, the Cougars hit the road for southern Minnesota to take on the Bethany Lutheran Vikings and the Martin Luther Knights. Winning one or both of the games would set the Cougars up for sole possession of the UMAC Championship and a first place seed going into playoffs.
