Friday Night Lights

           There are soon to be some new developments around the campus and the town of Glenville.  In a cooperative effort between the college, community of Glenville, and local patriarch, I.L.

Springtime in West Virginia

Springtime in West Virginia

Springtime in West Virginia Even though spring has officially arrived, it seems as though it is taking its sweet time bringing in the warmer temperatures. Lately, if it is not raining, the sun has been shining albeit with some very bone chilling winds, but rest assured, the warm days will soon arrive. With this return of spring weather, I would like to encourage us all to escape from the florescent lit class and dormitory rooms, and see the kind of outdoor adventures available in the [...]

Beat The Wintertime Blues

Back and forth you tread, wearing a deep path across the carpet while looking down at your only window to the outside world held in the palm of your hand. Due to the constant confinement caused by inclement weather, the smart phone and internet have, for many, been the only way to socialize or entertain themselves while stuck on campus. With the new addition of the Waco center, in conjunction with existing facilities, GSC has a lot to offer the student in the way of [...]
