Criticizing the Greek community without mentioning all of the positive benefits is ignorant and shows how people can be misled by stereotypes. A couple weeks ago, The Daily Evergreen published an opinion column speaking very poorly of the Greek community not only as a whole, but also specifically...

If universities regulate microaggressions, students may feel emboldened to be discourteous, thinking their behavior is justified in order to prevent further offense.

When becoming a pet parent you not only take on the responsibility of another living animal, but you sign up to be the first person they see in the morning and the last they see at night too.

Trust is the hardest thing to build in life. Well, trust and houses of cards. It’s just so easy to be building up and up then suddenly something slips and the whole thing falls away, leaving no proof it ever existed. Building with cards is a pain, but some are easier to build with than others....

The growth of Russia’s cyber-influence around the world is a bad sign for the U.S. Its actions during previous election seasons and throughout 2018 are suspect at the very least. Many more covert operations have taken place which are dangerous and closer than ever. An example of this influence is...

Law enforcement serves a necessary and irreplaceable purpose, but officers must be held accountable just like every other profession. Officers and their families accept a high degree of personal risk to protect their communities, but they aren’t above the laws they’ve sworn to enforce. Police...
