It’s that time of year again, the mad dash to pick up textbooks, bargain hunting for the lowest prices. Used or old, required or not, they’re all dreaded. We sometimes avoid buying the required books until the first class to see if they’re necessary and oftentimes that isn’t possible until...

Bodies come in all different shapes and sizes and not all bodies are the same. We see it in the differences between ourselves and others. Some of us are shorter, others taller. Some of us have brunette hair, others have black, blonde, red or any other color. This is true of our body size too. Bodies...

As a freshman entering college, I was excited for the opportunity to take new and interesting classes that were not available to me in high school.

The urgency to align with one political party, and one party alone, is overwhelming, to say the least. This becomes a problem when citizens do not fully agree with any candidate and thus refuse to vote, especially in general elections when it usually comes down to the big two. From a young age, party...

Filed under Columns, Opinion

Take a minute and think about what you would say if I said that because slavery is no longer legal, racism doesn’t exist in America. Many college students would respond with something along the lines of, “The discrimination of the past still echoes today.” That’s a difficult claim to refute,...
