‘No pain, no gain’ mindset causes student-athletes’ mental health to suffer

Being under pressure both on the court and in class, for athletes, can take a toll on their mental health.

"It is not easy balancing everything and takes a certain type of person to be able to work through the personal struggles to keep going each and every day with all that we do," one women's ice hockey player said.

From early mornings at the gym to late study nights in the library, student-athletes silently carry the pressure of proving their worth everywhere they go. Often, the physical side of an athlete takes priority. Coaches rush to get an athletic trainer to have injuries taken care of. But performing at...

Belleville’s final undergrad students forced to say goodbye earlier than expected

Graduation is usually a time for closure, especially when you're the last graduating class ever.

But seniors at Lindenwood-Belleville, which will shut down undergrad programs this summer, did not have that chance amid COVID-19.

Despite bittersweet goodbyes, seniors left with fond memories of the tight-knit campus.

"I knew pretty much everybody on campus... Even if I didn't know their name, I knew I saw then at a sporting game or somewhere else."

Lindenwood University-Belleville’s last undergraduate class didn’t have a proper goodbye. The commencement that was supposed to be a final celebration was foiled by the pandemic.

Students and alumni help create app to provide COVID-19 information

Students and alumni have created a service for people to get COVID-19 information via text message.

"The main reason we created [the app] is because there are a lot of people who dont have access to the internet," Vanessa Trujillo, one of the app's developers, said. "By making it through SMS, we're able to provide information to people who are more vulnerable."

The COVID Helpline is a non-profit, open-source, community-driven initiative created to raise awareness and boost communication about the novel coronavirus pandemic, according to its website.

BREAKING NEWS: Lindenwood is making SLS teams Water Polo and Olympic weightlifting club sports.

According to an email to the water polo teams from the VP of Intercollegiate Athletics, "This, in no way, means that the program will cease to exist and we sincerely hope that you continue to participate as a proud member of the team.

However, effective for the 2020-21 school year, the university will no longer provide funding to cover the expenses for a head coach or the operations for the program.

Please know that we are committed to ensuring you are able to complete your degree here at Lindenwood University. Thus, you and all the student-athletes of the Water Polo program will retain your full financial aid package as long as you remain enrolled at the university.

The team may continue to represent the university at collegiate events, but must register as a student organization through the Student Involvement Office. In addition, you will have to schedule practice time with a local aquatic complex at your own cost. The Athletics Department will be happy to assist in negotiating a competitive rate for practice time. As a student organization, team members will need to provide the funding for any entry fees and/or travel to/from the site of competitions."

We are looking into this story and will have more info soon.

Thoughts from a former teacher and present patriot: “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of men and women.” Thomas Paine, 1776. Paine was taking about the need for real patriots to come forward, think, and act in their country’s interests. I am addressing this, not to summer soldiers, but to patriots who can think and defend the innate decency of this country and its greatness. Many feel that America is confronted with immorality, strange lifestyles, political correctness, and condescension toward conservatives and the Christian message. Secular do-goodism and political correctness have not made our communities happier. Mainstream Americans feel replaced. Self-righteous activists threaten religious liberty and liberty on college campuses. However - different people get their needs met in different ways. Are people who seem so different really affecting me or trying to replace me - or should we allow them to follow their own path? Looking at Jesus’ entire message, what would He say to people who genuinely love people of their own sex? What would He feel about His fellow Jews who may think or believe differently than me? How would He handle refugees fleeing to America with their kids? In Matthew, Jesus showed His sense of humor when He asked, “How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a beam in your own? First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's.” In a few weeks, we will vote. I hope you will register and vote. I hope you will join me in voting for decency and for the best that America can be. Tim Hathaway
