Lack of sleep affects academic performance

According to Brandon Gaille, seven out of every 10 college students say they get less than the recommended amount of sleep every night. But even without reading that insanely high statistic, it is more than safe to say that sleep deprivation in college is a real problem. Every day we see people falling...

Prioritize your time, avoid over-studying

Studying is crucial to a student’s life. We need to study not only to pass our classes, but also to learn what we need for our future careers. We’ll study for days for one exam and pull all-nighters to make sure we have studied as much as possible. Studying is the most important thing to...

Raise minimum wage, reduce pay gap

The minimum wage in Louisiana is $7.25 which is the lowest minimum wage that any state is allowed to have in United States. Having a minimum wage this low has not only negative economic effects on individual people, but on the entire nation. For this reason, we must have higher minimum wages throughout...

Witchcraft. That’s what I was told zodiac signs were as a child. As I became a teen, I would sneak on my phone to see what my horoscope was for the week. I’d always read it and wait for the prediction of my week to come true. But it usually didn’t. While zodiac signs are fun and interesting to...

Sexual assault and domestic violence awareness is no longer fresh news. It is a serious topic because of the severe consequences for all involved. Although more conscious efforts are being made to spread awareness of this form of abuse, victims have a hard time coming to terms with their situation...

Donald Trump came to Monroe on Nov. 6, to promote Eddie Rispone in the upcoming gubernatorial election, which will take place on Nov. 16. Much excitement surrounded President Trump’s visit to our city. So much so that around 40,000 people registered for free tickets to the rally but only around 7,000...

President Donald Trump. One of the most talked about people in America and possibly the world. And especially here in Monroe since he rallied for himself and gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone. While I don’t prefer Trump or Rispone, I think Trump’s visit to Monroe was impactful and shouldn’t...

Graffiti brings purpose, expression on issues

Graffiti brings purpose, expression on issues

We see graffiti everywhere we go. It’s on buildings, train cars, playground equipment, bathroom stalls and anywhere else you can think of. Some of it is seemingly pointless and sometimes offensive, while some of it is smart, detailed and well-drawn. Many say that it is not art, just delinquents defacing...

There will be new options concerning the ACT test starting in September 2020, including retaking sections of the test, according to act.org. I am not against students getting to showcase their highest potential. However, I am against the possible consequences that might spur from this new change: the...

When I was a kid, I dreamed of being able to go to college. I would often imagine myself packing my favorite things into big brown boxes and stuffing them into the backseat of a car I didn’t own yet. Then, I’d drive away as my mom waved goodbye to me from our front porch. This dream followed me...

Grades- it’s what a lot of students worry about. We worry about our grades because we want to get hired by future employers, maintain scholarships and just feel better about ourselves overall. But what if we stopped worrying about grades and focused more on what is actually being taught? The one...

Most of us use some type of social media, whether it be Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or something else. But imagine if these platforms began to require payment for you to be able to use them. This issue has become a hot topic in the realm of Internet communications. Content providers like Facebook...
