Many ways to find college success

Shia Aaron L. Fisher, Contributor

February 5, 2020

My advice for new college students is to gamify their learning experience: learn the rules, practice the techniques and win. First, I should add a disclaimer, everyone’s experience is unique and I certainly do not have all answers myself. In fact, I have developed my style after several failures. I ...

Who needs a hug? Not me!

Anica Graney, Design Director

February 5, 2020

Hugs. Much like the diaper brand, I can see how they benefit society but would very much prefer to not find myself in one. In general, I find hugs to be a little uncomfortable in most situations. This hot take is brought to you by National Hugging Day which was on Jan. 21, otherwise known as the first ...

There are many ways to find happiness in life

Amara Gobermann, Managing Editor

February 5, 2020

Happiness is more than a moment to me, happiness is more of a dream sometimes. I can see myself in happiness and in blissfulness, but it is hard to get there. Happiness is built off of habits and most times resources. So far in my first two years of college I have explored what things bring me happiness,...

Why do we care about the royal family?

Emily Merlin, Social Media Editor

February 5, 2020

Why are people so interested in the lives of the royal family? I asked myself that very same question when I agreed to write this piece. It’s kind of hard not to realize that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, are leaving the royal castle. It’s understandable that they want to depart, becau...

I had to bring my six and eight year old boys to my 5:30 p.m. class last week. Of course, as soon as we started to walk from the parking lot to the main building, they started saying they were hungry.

More to health than physical well being

More to health than physical well being

Casey Anderson, Opinion Editor

February 5, 2020

Physical education in schools must teach more than just standards of physical wellness, but mental wellness, too. I find a lot of students dread gym courses, especially in grade school. I think this is because gym courses are constructed to achieve a standard of endurance or physicality that can be stress...

Social media’s fictional beauty standards

Michelle Ledesma, Staff Writer

January 22, 2020

Growing up in an immigrant household, there are a lot of things you must rapidly understand from a very young age. How you must be more diligent, how you must be secretive, how things can change at any time, and how you must always be prepared for if they do. My Mexican parents have always promised to...

Resolve not to give up

Casey Anderson, Opinion Editor

January 22, 2020

Oh man, I know we have all been there before. “This new year, I’m going to work out every morning! Like, for real this time!” You start out ecstatic for this new change, a new, improved ‘you’ this year, a you that wants to show everyone what you are made of.
