Perhaps saying that humanity has taken a liking with seeing the end of the world is not the best way to put its fascination for dystopian societies, post-apocalyptic scenarios, or doomsday events into words. However, how else would one be able to put it? There seems to be an inherent attraction to li...

In the average school day, students obviously won’t spend much of their time thinking about their student ID. It is only a set of six meaningless digits that remain burned in the back of a student’s mind for twelve years. It’s how the school system recognizes an individual amongst thousands of...

The way we read has evolved over time, from hand-written stories on papyrus parchment to the first ever printed press in 1440. Needless to say, books are much different in the modern world.

Since the late 80s, college tuition prices at public four-year colleges have risen at about 3.8% annually, and 3% at two-year colleges.

Should college be free? The answer is simple, no. My thought process isn’t based solely on the fact that I like to spend money, but also that making something as meaningful as college free would degrade the importance of college, subdue high school importance, and make the college education you receive...

School shootings have been a recent issue since the start of a zero tolerance to weapons, drugs, and even attitudes that imply terrible actions to come.

The argument has been made countless times; the never ending debate: should student journalists be granted freedom of press?

Think of the stereotypical American meal: a cheeseburger with fries, a hot dog at a baseball game, bacon and eggs in the morning, fried chicken if you’re living in the South. It’s not hard to spot the common factor tying all of these foods together- meat. It’s no secret that America runs on ...

It’s that special moment. It’s that moment that every girl dreams of. Their significant other looks deep within their eyes behind a magnificent backdrop.
