When I think of winter, I think of the bone-chilling temperatures that come along with it. Personally, I dread the winter time; the cold temperatures make me feel lazy and getting out of bed in the morning for class is definitely a struggle.

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).

The issue of terrorism in recent months has raised a lot of questions about why two terrorist attacks happened in the same week, but the media focused on the issues in France and ignored the attack in Nigeria. 17 people were killed in Paris, 11 of the 17 killed were journalists.

If you had the chance to voice your opinions on global issues to people that could create a change, would you?
By this point in the semester, college students everywhere have met their breaking point and are literally in dire need of winter break. I know I speak for many when I say that the struggle is real.
It’s normal to hear some Americans every year in December engage in the controversy of whether we should say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays.” This argument falls right in the midst of the political and cultural battles of the saying ‘War on Christmas.’
There I was, 18 years-old standing in front of the Walt Disney World Casting team with nothing but my head-shot in hand and my dreams at stake.
It is getting closer to birthday, when I turn 21. It is known that most college students drink before they are 21. Some people anticipate being 21. It is the time of celebration for people this age because it matches up with them becoming an adult. Some parents even take their children who are becoming […]
“I want to fight someone. I want to have sex. I want to drink more.” These are just a few thoughts that go through people’s heads when they are intoxicated.
It’s nothing new that college students drink before going out or to a party.
The taste of red jungle juice falls down your throat a little easier than the first sip. You clench the red solo cup that you’d been babysitting all night. The butterflies in your stomach flutter under the pressure. The guy who you noticed since you entered the party is about to leave and you know […]
As I let the words gala and mansion sink in, filling my head with a fantastical ideal of a music-video worthy night spent in sequined dresses on a grand dark wooden stairwell swinging on a chandelier, I was hooked.
Streaming music is not a huge step up from pirating for artists.
There has been a lot of debate as to whether or not attending a four-year college or university is really worth it. Is it really necessary to get a bachelors degree in order to obtain a job that leads one to a good future?

As I woke up for my first college course two years ago, I rolled out of bed at eight, opened the full fridge in my home, grabbed some breakfast and drove 30 minutes to my new school.
Everyone has somebody who they can count on for anything, who they look up to, who they aspire to be like one day, for me that person was my Aunt Kathy.
With the holiday season approaching, people are more inclined to donate to charities supporting the homeless, but is your image of someone who is homeless entirely correct?
Homeless. The word settles through the mind and brings up portraits of dirty, gray streets, sullen faces and despair. Yet, these people are not just humans to condemn when walking past them while they are holding up a battered cardboard signs.
We have all heard those crazy songs. The ones that are so catchy you can’t just hold in yelling the lyrics out in the car. Or how about the ones about Mick Jagger or brushing your teeth with a bottle of Jack?
