On the night of Oct. 2, a tan truck drove onto campus and its occupants returned the Wildman statue to the north side of the old SAC. Although not in its rightful position, the Wildman was once again safe and back on campus. While investigating the disappearance of the Wildman, it became apparent that it was a group of students who had taken the statue as a prank.

Caroline Ficher is a sophomore on this year’s women’s basketball team, but she isn’t just returning for the season, she’s returning from a knee injury she has been recovering from since spring semester. Ficher hurt her knee last January in a game versus Colorado Northwestern Community College. She stole the ball and took a shot from a fast break transition and felt something was not right. She tore her meniscus, and had surgery to repair it. Not only did she have her meniscus repaired, she had to fix the cartilage damage that caused pain.

You are with a group of friends, talking, laughing and having a great time when all of a sudden one of your friends says something to you. It hurts your feelings and even humiliates you. You try to brush it off as no big deal, but you can’t help but wonder why. Why would a friend do that to you?

We've lived lives, we’ve had heart break and felt love that others dream of. At some point, we decided that what we had wasn’t good enough, that we were capable of more. We pulled ourselves out of the dreary lives we lead and shouted in the loudest voice we could muster, I am not done yet. So we rearrange our lives, make sacrifices and trudge forth, for we are fearless and will not be left behind in a life of mediocrity, we are the non-traditional students and this is our story.
