The phrase “Treat yo’ self” should not be confused with the term self-love. They are two completely different actions rooted in different intentions. “Treat yo’ self” advocates for momentary indulgences whereas self-love advocates for a sustained healthy lifestyle. The infamous phrase “treat...

College students really have a lot on their plate. We all have homework, jobs and groups we are involved in and a social life. But many high school students have a lot going on too. They normally have to go to school from eight to three. They are also involved in groups on campus, have homework and...

Money is a powerful thing. It gives people an advantage in life. Higher education, on the other hand, is supposed to be an even playing field. If you have the GPA and the resume to get into a top university, then you get accepted. If you don’t, then tough luck. Recently, news broke that some wealthy...

Are you or a friend close to turning 21 soon? If so, what do you have planned? A nice dinner, a surprise party or maybe a night of life-threatening binge drinking? That last one doesn’t look so good if you ask me. Maybe it’s time we reconsider binge drinking on our 21st birthdays. Drinking is super...

Most students I meet are in at least one to two registered student organizations on campus and are actively helping with the events their organizations put on. Even students who aren’t a part of an RSO still are involved on campus. They go to the events with food, games, movies, dancing which are put o...

Stop bashing women on their day

Stop bashing women on their day

March 10, 2019

It’s always difficult writing about women’s issues being a male. As much as we try to empathize with the opposite gender, you can never truly know what it means to be a woman unless you are one. This past Friday was International Women’s Day and although I expected the day to be all about love, ...

Back in the 1900s, when industries needed cheap workforce to earn higher profits, Mexican immigrants were welcomed. Their motivation and hardworking spirits were seen as a great resource, and they played a key part in the businesses’ growth. Today, more than a century later, the president wants to send...

Free speech has always been controversial in our country. People become divided when the discussion of who can and cannot speak their mind freely arises. The latest addition to the discussion of free speech is a local here in Monroe-well, sort of. Mac’s Fresh Market is a grocery-store chain with l...

One of the most pressing questions in today’s society is should young illegals have a path to citizenship? My answer is, if they do not cause any problems such as criminal behavior and they contribute to our society, then 100 times yes. I do believe they deserve a pathway to citizenship and here...

Is Valentine’s day truly as overrated as people make it out to be? No. Feb. 14. is a day that is supposed to represent every aspect of love by showering that special someone with chocolates and flowers. Those who are not in a relationship, tend to believe that this holiday is a waste of time. Vale...

Valentine’s day is the day of the year where lovers and partners recognize their other half with cheesy cards, gifts and the typical dinner date. Meanwhile, single people sit at home depressed that they are single and how unloved they feel. Valentine’s day is very overrated and unnecessary. First, love is about...
