Oct 10, 2019 - Comments: 0

Netflix’s recently released limited series “Unbelievable” is a powerful and eye-opening docudrama based on the true story of one of law enforcement’s biggest mistakes. The story begins when Marie Adler (played by Kaitlyn Denver), an 18-year-old former foster child in transitional housing, reports being raped by a masked intruder.

Because of the busy schedules everyone has, it is easy to get caught up in the life directly around you. In the case that you find a few minutes of free time it is good to take a step back and realize how big the world we live in actually is! Below I have included a few key global events happening this week. All you have to do is read!

Addressing the Parking Situation

Sep 17, 2019 - Comments: 0

Every year, new students face the same problem: trying to find the correct place to park. This is a question that new students ask every year and why we have the color system. But if you think that parking doesn’t remain a problem for older students, you’re very misinformed.

Dining hall food is one-of-a-kind. Dining halls have a wide variety of every food genre you could dream of. This is a great thing to have since many students are eating there about twice a day. It is a very delicious and convenient way to eat.

For a freshman, it can be hard not to come into the dining hall and eat pasta or pizza for every meal. Add on top of it the dessert bar and the soda machines. This is a recipe for bad health when sustained for long periods of time.

Most students have to take summer classes. It can be an important thing for students so they can still graduate after four years. Summer classes are also usually slightly less of a workload because they are shorter.

Among the many positives of summer classes, the one negative is not remembering to stay on top of your work. It can be easy to get behind because of all the other events and vacations that happen during the summer. I’m here to share a few tips that will help you stay on top of your summer work.

Finals week is already hectic enough without the impending doom of having to pack up your entire room and move out and every single year hustling through the week trying to pass classes and think of a new way to fit the mini fridge into their four-door sedan.

Having everything that is stressful land in the same week of the semester is hard. It can make life even harder than it needs to be. That is why I have a few good tips on how to pack up at the end of the year. It will always have to happen around exams, but if you plan accordingly, you can save yourself some time.

We’ve reached that time of year. It is finals week. Finals week is a jam-packed week of exams, projects, papers and more. For all college students, it is a week fueled by coffee and sleep deprivation. We have all been there, and it can be so bad for everyone’s mental and physical health. Everyone expects finals week to be a stressed filled panicked week where no one sleeps. It has become a campus culture to freak out and makes it known that you are freaking out. I’m here to tell you there is a different way that will result in more sleep and less money spent at the library coffee shop.

Why we won’t be buying houses anytime soon

Apr 12, 2019 - Comments: 0

Millennials are moving back home and staying there longer. Relying on parents is more practical for today’s young adults because we stay in school longer and don’t have dependents of our own yet. Millennials make less and have different goals. This lifestyle is the result of the millennial goal of self-fulfillment.

Rather than prioritizing stability or starting a family, millennials first desire to establish careers that make them happy. That’s not to say that millennials aren’t making money or starting families, we’re just doing it later than previous generations.

Students from across the world will be participating in a Global Youth Climate Strike on Friday, Mar. 15. I’ve seen initiatives from countries as far and wide as Hong Kong and New Zealand.

Exam days are the scariest thing for all college students. These long-winded tests pop-up, what seems like, out of nowhere just to scare you into focusing more in class. The scariest one is the very first exam for a new class. “Why not final exams?” most people will ask. Finals aren’t scary because you have practiced that professor's method of testing and know what to expect. The very first exam is like falling over a ledge and hoping a net will catch you.
