Rasey: Community healing after the presidential election

There is no second guessing that our society is going through a very nasty presidential campaign process. The mood is repulsive and statements that we’d normally frown upon are becoming acceptable in our public spaces. Some say it comes with the currents; that we should allow a little bit of loose...

I’m studying abroad in England right now, and if there’s one thing we know about the country, it’s that they call soccer, football, and that it’s often cold and rainy. Because the weather is dismal throughout the week, oftentimes creepy-crawly things try to get into the warm dorms. In this case,...

Do you remember how excited you were whenever you heard that statement, “All right kids, we’re going on vacation!?” I don’t know about you, but it was among the top five statements to hear my parents make; well, maybe the most important statement for a 10-year-old kid. I want to think that everybody...

I usually don’t do the dishes at my apartment, and I usually don’t do my own laundry. No, I don’t live at home anymore and no, it’s not all the time, but during the workweek, that is a very true statement. That’s really only made possible because my boyfriend of almost two years helps and does...

My dad always jokes that I was born a liberal; he thinks it must have been some kind of mix up since he’s pretty much the poster boy for the Republican party. For a while I thought I must have taken after my mom, but that was mostly me insinuating my own views on someone who never spoke about theirs....

The predominant image of civil rights movements today is one of chaos and destruction, one of deep-seated animosity between the different races. But by intent, these movements are to inspire hope in us that together, we can build a better society and justice for everyone. At least that’s what I think...

I remember filling out the final answers to my mid-term examination and racing down to the art museum for a special screening of the 1925 silent film, Ben-Hur. A classically decorated peristyle theater welcomed a live organist and a crowd of hundreds to partake in a collective cinematic experience. The audi...

Hi. My name is Emily and I’m a millennial. You’re probably already thinking, “Oh great. Another millennial complaining about how hard it is to be a millennial.” And you’re right. That is exactly what my column is about. Millennials are under intense scrutiny by the media, the government...

Many people, especially those close to the issue, are concerned about the one-sidedness of YouTube’s new censorship policy for its content creators. I’m a firm believer in promoting user-friendly content whether it’s online, on the television or even in print. I think it is our responsibility to...

Let’s face it. Between juggling classes, clubs, sports, volunteering and leisure time, there isn’t much time to think about being healthy. Of course, we all want to be healthy, but not all of us think that we have the time to actually be healthy. However, being healthy doesn’t have to mean spending...

The events of 9/11 continue to resonate among the most diabolical devastation mankind has ever known. Our world, and rightly America, has been greatly changed since that day. On that fateful morning in 2001, not even the thousands of miles between America and my small hometown across the Atlantic Ocean...

One hundred and four years: a hundred and four years since the Titanic made its iconic journey across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America.   When most people think of the Titanic movie, two quotes typically come to mind: "draw me like one of your French girls" and "I'll never...
