This semester, I am taking a class called Writing for Social Change, which focuses on social justice issues and how writers can bring awareness to those issues, as well as mold their writing in a way that is more inclusive. I’ve...

Being “essential” offers new perspective

April 28, 2020

A couple of days ago, it hit me that I’m deemed “essential.” It seems a little weird to be considered essential for working in food service, when it is an industry that is so often looked down upon and belittled. I can’t...

Netflix’s ‘Tiger King’ a pleasant distraction

April 6, 2020

Connor’s Corner: Time flies while having fun, growing wiser

October 29, 2014

Student ponders life after graduation day

September 17, 2014

 It’s been on my mind lately that we ask ourselves a lot of questions. There’s rarely a person who comes to school and knows exactly what they want to do with their lives and how they want to make that happen. In the three years I...

How to let people live their lives as they decide

September 17, 2014
