  • In the press, we must trust

    With the inauguration of President Donald Trump, and throughout the almost two years of his tumultuous candidacy, the country has become less and less unified. Some of the feelings of distrust and apprehension come from the media’s portrayal of the Trump candidacy and the shaky start to the first 100 days...
  • Senior goodbye – Dylan Dow

    As cliche as it sounds, saying goodbye truly is never easy. This is especially accurate when saying goodbye to the place and people that have come to mean so much to me. Unlike many of the people I have had the opportunity to work with, only a year of...
  • Senior Goodbye: Justin Perry

    There’s a running joke in the office that I’ve quit more times that people can keep up with. While not entirely true, I have held six positions in four years, one of which I made up by accident. I’ve seen our staff dwindle to 30 and grow to nearly...
  • Senior goodbye: Charlotte Wray

  • Keeping the “revolution” alive

    As the presidential primaries enter the final stretch, it is looking more and more like Bernie Sanders will not be the Democratic nominee. FiveThirtyEight gives Clinton a nearly 100 percent chance of winning Pennsylvania and Maryland, the two biggest areas for delegates in today’s primaries. While a recent Fox...
  • Senior Goodbye: Malik Rahili

    You know, it’s kinda funny. From the beginning of this year, I wanted nothing more than to hang up my cape and cowl of editor-in-chief and move on to the “real world.” I spent months counting down the days until graduation, and I got more and more excited that...
