Everyone knows Spring Break is right around the corner. While some of us have big plans to travel to Myrtle Beach, Vancouver or even France with family and friends, not all of us get this chance. But who says that not going on a big trip means the end of Spring Break? It doesn’t have to be; The...

I get the same look when I tell strangers that I bowl collegiately — a cocked eyebrow and a face full of disbelief. And then they start to explain why they’re so surprised. Normally, it starts with trivial comments like “anyone can bowl.” Or “all that you do is throw a ball at pins; it’s...

Life as you know it: Gone. Vanished. Changed. The girl with every second of her life planned out is now sitting with a blank slate facing her.  It is an ominous, vulnerable and terrifying feeling.  How can she trust again? How can she pick herself up? Who will be there for her? Who will understand? These...

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one in five women are sexually assaulted while in...

Love. It’s a verb, a noun and a feeling. We all have experienced love in one way or another. It’s a part of being a person. Our editorial staff knows a thing or two about love. So, friends, what does love mean to you? What does love look like? And do you believe in love at first sight/soulmates? Jessica Harker,...

As my favorite bachelor contestant, Corinne, said this season, “I’m a nice person. I’m not just saying that.” Every day I try to be the very best version of myself that I can. It doesn’t do well for me to get caught up in petty gossip or to be uninvolved with the world around me. I hold...

Being born in the wrong generation makes me only wish that I could put Arwin’s time machine from “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” to good use. I could go back to the era of twisting to Chubby Checker and salivating over James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause.” My generation is too caught...

When the Ringling Brothers closed, hundreds of circus workers were the most affected. They lost their jobs. The managers were distraught thinking about what they were going to put the trained animals through. These animals have provided wonderful entertainment and funfair to their patrons for decades. But...

To put it bluntly, last semester was awful. I was a neurotic little ball of stress accompanied by newfound perfectionism. By December, I craved an escape. So I bought a flight to England and landed alone. I was quite literally running away, if only for a week. No emails, texts, or calls. My personal...

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...

The right of every American to use their voice in whatever way they please is one of the building blocks of this country.

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...
