Madie McLeod and John Becicka elected as new President and Vice President of student government

Interim President and Vice President, John Becicka and Madie McLeod, were elected as Student Government’s newest President and Vice President. McLeod was voted in as President and Becicka was voted in as Vice President, a reversal of their current roles.     The elections results came after emails containing electronic ballots were sent out to 12,624 actively enrolled students on campus. Of those 12,624 emails, 521 sent back their responses, a little over four percent of the total eligible voting population. Chair of the student government constitutional committee, Mike Fischer, says the small turnout is due to the special elections being held in the fall. “Fall elections aren’t as big as spring elections. The President and Vice President are usually elected in spring semester and this is a special election so it’s shorter,” said Fischer. Students were reminded of the elections periodically in the Husky Howler emails that are sent… Keep Reading

St. Cloud State welcomed the top team in the nation to the Herb Brooks National hockey center this past weekend when the #1 University of Wisconsin traveled from Madison, Wisconsin for the first border battle of the year between the two WCHA rivals.

Kittens help students de-stress during finals

On Tuesday, December 4, a group of student organizations, including Active Minds and Healthy Huskies, came together to create an event on campus to help with ease student mental health as they go into finals week.  The event was a kitten de-stress session.  There were a few cats that students could pet and play with in between going to classes. The event brought crowds of students to the Atwood Memorial Center throughout the day.  There was even a line of eager students outside the door, excited to pet the kittens. Katie Biedler, an assistant helping run the event said, “There’s a lot of evidence that suggests that petting animals really de-stresses you and helps your heart rate.” She went on to say that having events like these give students time to de-stress when they may not have the time. Active Minds, an organization that collaborated with the event, was there… Keep Reading

JID’s much anticipated DiCaprio 2 – a masterpiece

On the heels of his much-acclaimed debut album The Never Story, JID’s fan base and the rap community alike were very much anticipating his next piece of work. I’m a big fan of JID’s, and although his fan base isn’t as big as the Kendrick’s and the Cole’s of the game, his fans LOVE him. In the current climate, consumers want something that will catch their ear immediately. JID is an artist who can certainly do that, but as DiCaprio 2 shows, once you really focus in and listen with intent, it is evident how special this album and artist really are. The album starts out with “Slick Talk” – and, as JID himself said on Twitter, he produced an “unparalleled level of s*** talk.” Complete with a cathartic beat/flow switch, this song is a perfect introduction of what’s to come. “I heard n***** lookin for a problem, but we… Keep Reading

Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard, expresses the positive aspects of the artist’s life

November 16th was a big day for soul rapper Anderson .Paak, releasing his third studio album Oxnard. While Anderson .Paak had released a few singles in the past few years, Oxnard is his newest album since 2016, which really stands out since Oxnard is nothing close to what .Paak’s previous albums sound like. His past works are considered to be R&B and Neo soul, while Oxnard is a brand new wave for Anderson .Paak as a funky hip-hop and rap genre. The album name plays homage to Anderson .Paak’s birthplace Oxnard, California and, as stated in a Rolling Stone interview, .Paak has dreamed of making an album like this since he was in high school. The album has made considerable contributions from major names in the rap and hip-hop industry such as Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, J-Cole, Snoop Dogg and even legendary artist and producer Dr.Dre. Interestingly enough, Dr.Dre and… Keep Reading
