The Diamond Princess cruise ship originally sailed off from Yokohama, Japan and planned to sail to China, Vietnam and Taiwan. But passengers soon found themselves confined to their cabins, as many passengers and crew tested positive for coronavirus. Everyone onboard was quarantined and the virus only continued...

Stop assigning homework over break

Stop assigning homework over break

Let the good times roll! Louisiana just celebrated a holiday we all hold dear to our hearts, Mardi Gras. Every year, we flock to New Orleans for parades, grenades and beignets. But for students, something else comes along with all the festivities— homework. It’s not uncommon for professors to assign...

ULM could avoid advising with consistent classes

ULM could avoid advising with consistent classes

ULM Hawkeye

March 9, 2020

Last week, the Student Success Center announced that advising is now required for ULM students of all classifications. Before, upper-classmen didn’t have to get advised. But now it has to be required for everyone because students frequently miss courses that they need. There are so many courses that ...

Own your anxiety, don’t let it own you

Own your anxiety, don’t let it own you

Anxiety finds a home in the bodies of humans everywhere. But it’s not seen as a mental health disorder. Just like depression, anxiety is a burden to many people and it continues to be stigmatized by the general public. But people should be able to talk about it and embrace it, because then it wouldn...

We should have voted for Bloomberg

We should have voted for Bloomberg

March 9, 2020

Super Tuesday is behind us and the future of the country is just as unknown as before. It brings a question to my mind—Why didn’t America vote for Mike Bloomberg? After poor polling, Bloomberg decided that it was in the best interest of the country to drop out of the race and support the new fron...

The coronavirus is quickly spreading across the globe. According to CBS, the U.S. has had two deaths, almost 90 confirmed cases and it has spread to at least 12 states.

Everybody wants to talk, nobody wants to listen

Everybody wants to talk, nobody wants to listen

We all know that one person who just can’t wait for their turn to talk and always makes the discussion about themselves. The truth is, we all do it sometimes. A lot of us are great talkers but not many of us are great listeners. We’ve got to change this about our culture. Listening is an important...

Are relationship age gaps OK?

Ashlyn Dupree and Alice Harper

March 2, 2020

Yes Love is love. Even when that love includes a 20-year age gap. That’s because relationships are dependent on the feelings two people have toward one another, not how many years they’ve been alive. And, every relationship is different. Every person is different. Some people are more mature than ...

Healthcare system: hurting more than helping

Healthcare system: hurting more than helping

Yana Paudel, [email protected]

March 2, 2020

The United States is the wealthiest country in the world, yet it was ranked 37 in healthcare by the World Health Organization. The citizens of this country pay entirely too much for healthcare and don’t get nearly enough out of it. At this point, our system is hurting more than it’s helping. If...

Oh boy, it’s that time of the year where people say “New year, new me.” But what if instead of making a “new” us and creating goals we won’t achieve, we make realistic goals for the new year? According to a study conducted by University of Scranton, only 8% of people achieved their New Ye...

Age-restricting tobacco law prevents nothing

Age-restricting tobacco law prevents nothing

Loryn Kykendall, [email protected]

February 24, 2020

Let me be clear: I do not support the use of tobacco by anyone of any age. However, the new law preventing anyone under 21 from buying tobacco products should not have been passed. While the law is well-intentioned, it will be ineffective. As college students, we know an age limit doesn’t stop anyone...
