The three years I have been at Mercy College have been interesting in many ways. It has been interesting in the food we eat, the places we sleep, the professors we meet; but none quite as interesting as the music we hear in the halls of Victory. I first met Lawrence Fauntleroy while attending a performance...

More recently I have been trying to show appreciation to emerging artists because they are the ones who are partially responsible for pushing our economy, our boundaries, our culture and our ability to think creatively. My Spotlight on Emerging artist’s is a way to help get these artist’s names out...

Since I first got into college it seems that I have been at a constant tug of war with my identity. My biggest struggle has always been accepting the advice I get from others so that I can grow into a successful adult all while trying to stay true to who I am. It took me up to the beginning of my juni...

I, like many people around the world grew up without a father or father figure and I never knew how much it affected me until I got older. As much as I would like to say that not having a dad doesn’t faze me, I would be lying because to the contrary it very much does. It doesn’t bother me in the ...

In most recent times it seems that I cannot scroll through television channels or through my Facebook news feed without coming across something that is in some way related the ISIS crisis. I have done my due diligence to be informed about the extremist group that is wreaking havoc across smaller parts...

Every election that rolls by in New York City means that I am going to get a phone call from my sister and mother frantically asking me who they should vote for. This usually annoys me for various reasons; one of them being that they should care enough about their city to learn about who’s going to...

This week I had to do readings for my Junior Seminar course and in those articles the central idea was poverty and what the world could do to help end the issue. Some of the readings were interesting, however, one of them made me mad. I was baffled by how simple the writer and the United Nations (UN)...

This past winter break was definitely bizarre to say the least. I have never been a huge fan of winter break because the only thing that I do is sit at home and binge watch the latest season of some crappy reality TV show while obsessing about how I think I’m getting fat. This past break didn’t seem...

  “I wish I was as quiet and self conscious as that person over there “, said no one ever. I am shocked at the amount of people that I have come across who have little to no confidence in college. Now I’m not saying that you have to be this obnoxious, overbearing person. You don’t have...

Just a day ago I was sitting in the library with a friend of mine and couldn't help but be annoyed at the number of freaking Iphones going off due to Yik Yak notices and updates. As if having noise in a library isn't bad enough the noise was followed by annoying giggles, gasps, and whispers. I asked...
