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...

What do you think of when you hear the word feminist? Do you picture an angry, man-hating lesbian woman, with unshaven armpits and no job? Or do you think of your mother, sister, professor or doctor?

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...

I believe Hillary Clinton is bad news for America, and I’ll briefly tell you why in this short letter. Hillary promises free college, but free college would cost taxpayers $350 billion over 10 years and increase our national debt. That is the same scam as Obamacare.  Hillary would give the federal...

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...

In just one year, UT President Sharon Gaber and her staff have worked to increase enrollment, raise funds and cut costs by merging colleges. Hard work should be rewarded, and Gaber has definitely done her fair share to fix the image of the university. Our national media exposure has increased because...

Let’s face it. Between juggling classes, clubs, sports, volunteering and leisure time, there isn’t much time to think about being healthy.
