College is often depicted in many different ways through all kinds of movies. Movies like the Neighbors, House Bunny, Animal House, even Monsters University show this wild experience of college where you have to find a group of friends quickly or you’re an outsider for life. The movies show that class doesn’t really matter and the social experiences do, or that greek life is bad. These are all insane stereotypes that invade the mind of prospective college students and scare them into going one direction or another.

Breakdown of Ohio Code 3313.6011 Health Education Guidelines

Historically, nothing in American education fails to prepare students for the real world more than sexual education. This topic is typically the only formal introduction these students have to ideas about sexual health, consent, sexuality, and sex vs gender. Depending on the state law and district makeup, the level of inconsistency, incompetence and hostility that these topics will be treated with varies.

The Lonely Elzay Gallery

Nov 20, 2019 - Comments: 0

As humans I must ask, have we become so simple minded that we no longer care for testing our understanding? Have we lost touch with our inner self who wishes to go and be creative? Why have we as people lost interest in art? So many questions, such as these, come to mind when thinking about why attendance is so low at the Elzay Gallery at Ohio Northern University.
