A Flashback to Childhood 2020 is right around the corner, and most of us are leaving our childhood behind as we come to the end of another decade. This is the end of teens, and most of the stuff we loved has finally left the shelves or TV. We do have some things to look forward to, as Netflix is slowly adding our favorite Nickelodeon shows and Disney+ has come out. Some of us miss items like silly bands, paper games like fortune teller, and hand games like ninja. Most of us m
As the end of the semester draws to a close, students find themselves hard pressed to keep up with the demanding class schedule, the final projects and papers, and the threat of looming exams. Not to mention there are certain social obligations during the holiday season, and while Thanksgiving break is a much needed reprieve from the daily rush, it comes with its own challenges for many. At times such as these, it’s important to remember to call on the name of the Lord, our H
Heeding the Call Series Part 3 The Gospel went east this past summer as three Blue Mountain students dedicated their time away from school to overseas missions.

The Fine Arts department has provided BMC students with a wonderful variety of concerts this semester, including everything from our own chorale to world-renowned musicians. In one of the most recent concerts, on Monday, November 11, the MLB Auditorium was graced with the presence of the Möller-Fraticelli Guitar Duo. Sometimes called “a unique fusion of Swedish perfection and Argentinian passion,” the couple’s music reflected inf
BMC Campus Safety As Blue Mountain College students, it can be easy to slip into a feeling of security and safety, and while this campus is definitively safer than some places, that is not a decent reason to neglect rational precautions, take preventative steps, and know what to do in case of the dreaded emergency. Intruder If you are concerned about an intruder, there are certain steps you can take to prevent injury to yourself and others. First, if the intruder is armed and
As the semester crawls its way to the close, it’s met at the finish line with the ending of a series intended to introduce the new faculty with a mix of serious and not-so-serious questions. The last, but certainly not least, person to be featured is Dr. Mooneyhan. Dr. Mooneyhan is the new Chair to the Department of Kinesiology, Associate Professor of Kinesiology and Blue Motion Coordinator. If you haven’t had a class with him yet, then you probably aren’t familiar with him.
Christmas is coming, and it’s coming fast. Ungodly amounts of Swiss Miss will be consumed, and inevitable trips to Cotton Plant will be taken to ogle at the intricate lights and massive decorations. As the holiday season approaches, it brings a time to reflect on the things we’re thankful for, and often we’re reminded of those who are less fortunate than we are. In light of those that have little, the Christ-oriented student leaders on the BMC campus have organized various op
