Diversity without inclusivity is useless.          By definition feminism is the equality of genders, but at times it feels as though people forget about the importance of being intersectional. Feminism should work to help all affected by the patriarchy,...

I woke up the morning of January 20 to the inauguration ceremony of the 45th president of this country. It was not that I had planned on watching the ceremony, but I had fallen asleep the night before with the television on, and awoke to the inauguration of now-President Trump. It sounds strange...

Americans are too materialistic

America as a nation has become very materialistic, although people don’t realize it. For example, whenever a new iPhone is released, everyone seems to suddenly need a new phone. When iPhones are announced for release, everyone puts in their preorders and it’s sold out by the weekend. More often...

One of my biggest accomplishments was deciding to continue my academic journey at the young age of 30. It was an internal struggle I dealt with for some time. Everything changed one day when I came to realize that age was only a number. My age did not define my capacities, or my willpower to return to...

President Donald Trump’s aversion to people darker than white has been both heavily chronicled and criticized for the 18 months prior to his entering the Oval Office as the most powerful person in the world.

As you flip through the channels on your television, your show gets interrupted by some model in a lab coat holding a cream. You hear, "You're ugly, flawed and no one likes you. Cover up your nonexistent imperfections by buying our miracle product." We're constantly manipulated to buy this cream because...

Registration for Spring 2017 classes began for many students this week. As is usual for this process, classes fill up or aren’t offered on certain days of the week, which can create problems for students. These problems usually work themselves out.

This summer, we had a large focus on the Olympics, but what most people failed to notice is the trespassing of gender inequality in swimming. Women have fewer options than men in the number of events. For example, the men’s longest race happens to be 1500 meters, while women’s is 800 meters. The Olympic Comm...

“For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” This was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s bold prediction in July. Those moderates, sickened...

With the outcome of the 2016 election, life as we know it has changed. This election has made history, but not in the way we hoped it would. As soon as the new president-elect was announced, protests broke out on college campuses across the country. To a lot of people, these demonstrations seem confusin...
