This past summer, I attended a traditional Latin Mass at a nearby Catholic church near my hometown in North Texas wearing my favorite vintage dress and a lace chapel veil. The dress came just above my knees, had a high neck and sleeves nearly down to my elbows — by all means, a very modest dress. As I walked in, I noticed that I was the only woman not wearing a dress that came down...

There’s a buzz outside of South Hall, and it’s coming from Andrew Cable’s hair clippers. Cable, a senior biology major, has been providing haircuts to friends on campus for about a year and a half. This year, he is typically open for business on Friday afternoons, when he cuts hair to relax after a week of studying and working two jobs. “I normally do Friday afternoons. I’m working in admissions 10 hours a week, I’m...
