I’ve been waiting to write this goodbye since I started in The Outlook as a freshman, so you’d think that I would have had some idea of how to start this by now. I honestly have no words of wisdom, no great advice, and nothing inspirational to share with anyone bored enough to read through this whole thing.

Graduate Studies Spotlight: History and Anthropology
With a growing demand in the current job market for men and women with skills revolving around history and anthropology, the University’s graduate programs for each of these fields provide students with just the right amount of experience both inside and outside of the classroom to help them get to where they want to be after they earn their degree.
Graduate Studies Spotlight: Speech-Language Pathology
It was truly an amazing experience to go to Guatemala and immerse myself in a new culture. Five University students, including myself, who were enrolled in Dr. Chris Hirschler’s Guatemala Public Health course, traveled to Guatemala to educate the Las Amigas, rural communities, and children in the area. The Las Amigas are men and women from rural areas who are trained to promote good health in their communities that are connected to Salud y Paz.
The Life of a Backstage Rockstar
Monmouth Alum Works Behind the Scenes for Billy Joel
The lights dim, the crowd roars, the band walks out on stage. The speakers erupt with the sounds of guitar and drums, and the show finally begins. Mesmerized by the performance in front of them, concertgoers in the audience think nothing of the people behind the scenes who are working the lights, the sound, and the special effects being played on the screen behind the band; people like Kaitlyn Baklarz, who could easily be considered artists themselves.

As a part of the Department of Political Science and Sociology, the University’s Public Policy graduate program provides students with the opportunity to advance their knowledge in this particular field of government and law from both inside and outside the classroom.
Graduate Studies Spotlight: Corporate and Public Communication
After graduating with their Bachelor’s Degree, many students choose to take the next step in their academic careers by attending graduate school. While some will seek specific schools with certain programs, others will enroll in a degree program right here at the University.
Early Birds vs. Night Owls
While Founding Father Benjamin Franklin once said, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise,” American journalist James Thurber claimed, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and dead.” If whether or not a person identifies as an early bird or a night owl also has the ability to determine the quality of their life, which one of these two men are we supposed to believe?
My Funny Galentine
The question of whether or not I will soon become the world’s most single woman is always valid, but I find that my nonexistent relationship status tends to become more of a pressing issue around the same time every year: Valentine’s Day.
Taking Care of Business
Companies Begin to Address the Lack of Female Entrepreneurs
It’s no secret that women have almost always been given the short end of the stick. They don’t make as much money as men, childcare is expensive, and they are constantly fighting for the rights to their own bodies. Debates about these issues are typically at the forefront of the discussions that revolve around gender politics, but it seems as though many people forget, or are simply unaware of, the fact that women are virtually invisible in positions of power almost entirely across the board.
Feminism Isn’t Just for Females
For a number of reasons, many people in today’s society are afraid to identify themselves as feminists. Both men and women seem to flee from the term in fear of also being categorized as crazy, delusional, or what many consider to be worse, a “feminazi.”
