By: Oscar Stephens Willis Columnist No, not your phone number. The other number, you know the one that you only can ask each other after a few drinks or if you’re really cool, when you’re playing Truth or Dare?

The University of West Florida is in a state of constant change. As a student and alum since 2006, I can honestly say that this institution is remarkably different from my freshman orientation in August 2006.

LGBT students should be supported, not admonished

Like many students attending the University of West Florida, I grew up in the southeastern region of the United States, or what many local admirers and foreign admonishers simply refer as “the South.” Specifically, I was born in Texas, raised in Tennessee and fully formed in the panhandle of Florida.

‘Sex Week’ backlash shows sex ed has a ways to go

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Union University, a private institution in the state of Tennessee and its “sex is bad, mmmkay?” methodology towards providing sex education to its students.  The University of Tennessee-Knoxville differs because it is a public institution, and I would think a public institution such as UTK would be […]

The day-to-day inner-workings of being a member of the staff here at The Voyager have not been exhaustively documented in print prior to this issue.
