The New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons to become Super Bowl 51 champions in a historic comeback that ended 34-28 this past Sunday. Although I’m a Detroit Lions fan, I’ve come to identify more with Atlanta than I have ever identified with a city in my life. I just want to hug everyone...

On Jan. 21, I attended the Million Women March on Washington, D.C.. I cannot fully express the feeling of marching with hundreds of thousands of folks who, for the most part, share my sentiments regarding the recently inaugurated president of the United States. It was renewing and enlivening to be there...

It’s four a.m. on a Wednesday morning. Only hours before, the IC staff and I finished another amazing newspaper. I headed home, hoping to fall right into bed, but instead I have to finalize two papers for my English classes, fix a presentation for a communication class and finish reading 25-odd pages...

“How can you say to a brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite!” This scripture points out the hypocrisy in our society. This past weekend was eventful because of two important things that happened. First,...

Hurray! I’m a freshman with one semester under my belt and, returning to campus, I thought I had all the survival tricks figured out. I mean, I’ve already experienced the whole transitional shock from high school to college, I’ve learned that the elevators in University Hall will make you pray...

All building blocks of matter are made up of elementary particles, particles that cannot be sub-divided. They are fundamental. This phenomenon can be explained by the “Standard Model of Particle Physics” or, for science geeks, a gauge quantum field theory. The standard model, therefore, consists...

This past Christmas I was able to spend a week at home in Youngstown, Ohio, with my family. This was a rare opportunity for me, considering I can’t drop everything and make a three-hour drive every weekend. I was especially excited to see everyone while they opened their presents. As the oldest sibling...

Mark Twain’s inspiring counsel is this: Focus on doing right because that both gratifies and surprises people. We all need this, but one person that is living this goal, in my opinion, is President Sharon Gaber, University of Toledo’s 17th and first female president. My four-year studentship at this...

We all know that person that is living the perfect life on social media — toned body at the gym, mirror selfies, colorful, healthy arrays of breakfast food, perfectly timed “candids”, flawless skin and a glowing white smile, and the couple photos that everyone comments “goals” on. But do we...

From the girl whose automatic response is “I’m sorry” even when it’s not my fault, who doesn’t honk even when you cut me off and who won’t stand up for myself when I’m blatantly being disrespected: I’m telling you that it’s time to toughen up. Ever had an experience that leaves you...

We are told to strive for success, and with success comes a sense of relevance. But what is the price to remain relevant? I don’t mean the Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg or Barack Obama type of relevance, although that’s great too. I’m talking about that desire to be loved, to be respected or to...

The beauty industry is dominating television, radio and the internet in a way that leaves the core of a girl’s sense of self-worth shattered. While this is nothing new, the industry has found a way to take advantage of the despicable position that society already puts women in, convincing women that...
