“September, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. That is how I categorize the last few months of the year. Some people say summer ends on Labor Day, others say it ends when school starts, and some say it is at the fall equinox on Sept. 21. When I was younger, Labor Day was what ended summer for me. […]
“Always Remember.” That is what everyone says every year on September 11th. In truth, unless most people were directly affected by the events on 9/11, they don’t pay much attention to it. Growing up, 9/11 had more than one day dedicated to it. It seems as if people post things on social media on that […]
This past week, the question I was asked most frequently was, “How does it feel being back on campus?” Everyone is looking for one answer, but I don’t think it is that simple. Typically, I have responded with, “Its good,” but that’s not the truth. I really want to tell people I feel all the […]
I remember when I was a freshman. It was both liberating and terrifying. Leaving home and all that was familiar was not easy. I was excited to see who I was without the direction of a parent. I think the hardest thing about going to college was learning who I am. I have always been […]
Today we live in a world controlled by social media. People walk with their heads buried in their phones, and they care more about likes or the latest trends than they do for each other. Many are spending time trying to perfect the latest TikTok challenge rather than with their friends and family.

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the United States last year, the travel industry came to a complete halt. Over the course of the summer, people began to venture out a little bit more, but mostly sticking to small road trips. With more and more people gaining access to COVID-19 vaccinations, the light is finally at the end of the tunnel. After over a year of isolation, it’s safe to say that we are itching to get out of our houses. Armed with the right precautions and equipment, travel is possible right now.
You know, it’s funny—people say chivalry is dead but really, it was just reinvented. According to the Oxford Dictionary, chivalry is, “the medieval knightly system with its religious, moral, and social code; Knights, noblemen, and horsemen collectively; the combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, especially courage, honor, courtesy, justice, and a readiness to help the weak.” Many people believe that chivalry is actions taken to make women feel good or impress them. Today that might be true, but that was not always the case.
April showers bring May flowers, but May flowers bring distraction to school and homework. With the seasons quickly changing and school coming to an end, being stuck at a desk all day while the weather is beautiful might impact how and when we get our work done.
Life over the past year has been nothing short of crazy. One day we were sitting in on lectures, going to the gym, and attending parties with our friends. Come the next day, we were locked inside with no end to the pandemic in sight. It was a tragic and scary part of our lives in which we had no choice but to adapt. Now, most of us have adjusted to this new way of life. We moved the classroom into our bedrooms, the gym into our living rooms, and “parties’’ consist of hanging out with your parents and your dog.
