Women have come so far and made so many strides in the past century. From earning their suffrage to subsequently serving in politics, advocating for birth control, winning the Nobel Prize and more, women have come a long way. But women also still have a long way to go. Women still face oppression, lack of […]
It’s that time of year again. Everyone is in the midst of planning out what classes they want to take. Some students may still need to finish their core classes, major requirements or just are looking for classes to be full-time students. But when we pick our classes, shouldn’t we be more concerned with what […]
Deck: In no way are either forms of service wrong, but there are certain times where one form fits best. What is short-term service? Some of the services trips that campus ministry and individual students go on are looking at the shorter-term aspect of the community. This is not a negative thing, because the work […]
Diversity should be appreciating everyone’s differences. There is no reason for all of us to be the same – that is boring, so just celebrating those differences is a start.

Nor’easter Juno brought back the #CabriniBlackout for the fourth time in this school year alone with a smaller amount of snow than what the meteorologists were predicting and of course additional school work.

What is the balance between the value of respect for the faith of others and the value of freedom of speech?
Every year at the beginning of January, college students get pesky emails reminding everyone to fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). But what if all schools adopted tuition freezes so that no student had to worry about whether or not the tuition will be raised for their next four years? Would […]
President Obama introduced an executive action about immigration on Thursday, Nov. 21. In the opinion of many, the plan was just a Band-Aid to a more major problem that in the end does not clearly fix any of the underlying issues.
It’s typically not unusual to see red solo cups in the hands of a stumbling college student every Thursday evening for “Thirsty Thursday.” The norm of on-campus drinking and partying has always been around and it still remains as one of the most popular activities that takes place on campus.
There is something new to be found on campus, some may say that it’s our new President or the latest additions to the nationally ranked mens basketball team or the obnoxiously large yellow speed humps that have littered the campus drive. An eye sore or a safety precaution?

Why should someone be judged by their sexuality? Why does it matter whether someone is homosexual, heterosexual or asexual? Why can’t society just allow individuals to be who they are, except that and move on? It does not affect anyone except themselves, so the justification of judgement in the LGBT community is completely irrelevant.
“I tried to leave the house once after an abusive episode, and he blocked me,”Beverly Gooden (@bevtgooden via Twitter) said. “He slept in front of the door that entire night, #WhyIStayed.”
