According to The Guardian, researchers have created studies to examine what skills students consider to be important and only 15 percent of 15-16 year olds consider creativity to be valuable.
I am in no way, shape or form an expert on how the body works or how different foods affect our bodies. As far as I am concerned, if it fills me up and does not make me sick or gain weight, it is okay to eat. Recently, a new diet fad has been trending […]
Financial Aid helps millions of students make it through college, but how much does it really help? Every year the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is released.

CVS, the highest selling pharmacy in the country has dropped tobacco products from their shelves. Their CEO, Larry J. Merlo, believes the sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with the company’s purpose. While this decision is winning a lot of support and praise, some are saying that if their purpose is to promote health then […]
Having trouble deciding what is appropriate to wear to work?
Ever thought to yourself, “Hey, if I commute to college, I won’t be able to get involved or understand the true meaning of what it’s like to have that ‘college experience’?” Wrong. Just because you commute to school doesn’t mean that you can’t take in the benefits and enjoy college just as much as a […]
It’s a question we are all faced with when we enter college: should I live on or off campus? In addition, after freshman year you are allowed the option to move off campus and live somewhere nearby such as those “luxury” Kingswood Apartments or you can continue to live on campus at buildings such as […]
Traveling to a country riddled with a horrid past of genocide and economic injustice is the destination myself and a handful of other students and teachers will be heading to this spring break.
Without looking, do you know where your phone is? For most people, their cell phones are within arm’s reach. It’s probably in a pocket on their person. Heck, you’re probably browsing apps while reading the paper; mindless multitasking. But what are you doing?
MOOCs: For those unaware with the term it stands for “Massive Open Online Courses.” Some colleges and universities have began to offer them and other schools are looking for ways to combat them. I personally disagree with the idea of MOOCs and think they shouldn’t be counted for credit.
Olympics Winter Games 2014, political messages and LGBT support are visible within the first days of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
How far would you go to shed those winter pounds?
Want a fresh start this spring? Maybe your eating habits are the perfect place to start!
MOOC: a funny acronym or the next big thing of higher learning.
Valentine’s Day is the day where it is all about the cute stuff. Everywhere you look there are cute candies, cute flowers and cute couples. What about all the others who are spending Valentine’s Day alone and perhaps maybe can’t get over an ex that left them scorned?
A stunning vase of red roses and hydrangeas perched on the front step of my house was a very pleasant surprise when I had no plans or date last Feb. 14.
Thinking of ideas for Valentine’s Day?
This month there will be lots of love going around, because of Valentine’s Day of course. But where does the feeling of love come from? Your heart. It is Heart Health awareness month. This is the 50th birthday of the holiday. Not everybody this month will think about the importance of their heart, they will […]
This years Superbowl commercials were both memorable and controversial as they left lasting impressions on the heart and mind.
With the winter we have been having, it is a wonder that we have had classes at all semester. Meteorologists keep making calls for up to a foot of snow repeatedly week after week, and it has created a sense of foreshadowing to whether or not school will be in session the next day. I […]

Why do people drop their New Year’s resolutions?
It seems as though the golden rule in the past was to be private; not to share too much or say too much
Last semester I embarked on an incredible four month journey with Semester at Sea. A four month study abroad program that takes place on a cruise ship. 115 days, 15 countries. Before we all got off the ship – a mere month ago – there were questions that were tossed around. What are you going […]
