Comical columnist imparts wisdom

MIKE WIETHORN, NI Columnist 1991-92

I suppose that my column for the NI could be described as simply human interest. Nothing really to speak of as being political or social commentary. I just talked about general UNI campus events, and how I viewed them as a non-traditional student. I didn’t start my freshman year until I was almost in my mid-20s, so I wrote about university life as someone who had worked in the real world for a while before starting school. I tried to keep things light in my column, if not sometimes outright silly. Ultimately, I wanted my fellow Panthers to keep things in perspective, and realize that life is a marathon, not a sprint.

Hopefully, I was able to impart some “older dude” wisdom to those who read my column, but more than anything, I hope they found some time to laugh.
