Creativity died so social media could live

I don’t know about you, but I am one of the most uncreative people I know. It’s hard for me to come up with cute party ideas, costume ideas for Halloween or even DIY projects to decorate my house. So, I depend on Pinterest and Google to find me the best ideas for my projects. But with all these...

Ready? Let’s say it together, “Thank God election season is over!” All of that free candy has ruined my appetite going into Halloween. But, on a serious note, we have got to fix how campaigning is done for student elections. You think it’s a normal day on campus, you’re minding your own business...

(Her Perspective) R.I.P. romance, for music and social media, has brought upon us its sudden and most likely temporary death. Despite that opening line, I want to go ahead and make it known that I am not one of those people who blame social media for the destruction of everything good in life. However,...

(His Perspective) As technology has become more a part of our everyday lives, there are those who say it changes us. Maybe your parents have said it, maybe your friends or maybe it’s you. One of the most common changes in those people’s eyes is romance. Many people say romance is dead. They...

You’re walking down a sidewalk. You look ahead of you and see someone passed out on the ground. What do you think? Some people will look down on that person. “They’re just a junkie,” they’ll say. But if you were able to put yourself in their shoes, even for just a minute, you might change your...

Does Student-to-Student page create change?

Ashlyn Dupree, [email protected]

October 14, 2019

(Against) Student-to-Student at ULM is a great page on Facebook to ask questions about classes, promote events your organization is hosting, share images of lost items that have been found and even share funny memes that all students can relate to. What Student-to-Student was not meant for is to...

(FOR) In the past few years, social media has transformed the way change is made. Information can be shared across the globe with the tap of a finger or the click of a button.

October 14, 2019

Due to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and other successful streaming services, the cable appears to be dying out from a lack of this generation’s attention. But history does tend to have that crazy habit of repeating itself— and cable’s prominence in society is no exception. In light of these recent...

October 14, 2019

Every 10 minutes my phone buzzes. It is not a text or call from a friend, but an update from one of the multiple media sources I subscribe to telling me that some form of breaking news has happened somewhere around the world. In the age of the 24-hour news cycle and social media, this is common. Many...

Should President Trump be impeached?

Should President Trump be impeached?

Ashlyn Dupree, [email protected]

October 8, 2019

(Against) Before I get started on this opinion, I want to make something clear. I am in no way, a supporter of President Trump. I don’t plan on voting for him this next election and I don’t agree with everything he has done while in presidency. With that being said, there is no reason for Trump...

(FOR) Donald Trump’s presidency has always caused controversy even before he was officially president. Now, the Republicans and Democrats still butt heads, and the situation has reached its peak.
