New York, the city that should also be known as the one with unreliable public transportation. This leads me, and many other city-goers without a driver's license, to spend mass amounts of money on cabs to get to our destinations safely and on time. Digital ride-sharing corporations like Uber and Lyf...

Valerie Lopez, Associate Editor

April 25, 2019

We've all may have experience or encountered men that think they are a reincarnation of Jesus Christ himself. Or Don Juan. Maybe Fabio. Perhaps they are impersonating their President. The men that think they are larger than life and right about absolutely everything. The men whom when initiated in...

OP/ED: An Open Letter to Anti-PC Culture

Steven Keehner, Associate Editor

April 4, 2019

From #MeToo to a slur in a song, American culture is seeing the results of an effort to change the way we view and speak about various groups throughout our country. While not unique to the USA, I can only speak and say political correctness has played a massive role in the reshaping and redefining of our society.

We've only reached the third month of 2019, and yet scandal has found a way to make itself exceedingly known.

In the world of video games, one story is at the forefront of every gamers mind right now: Fallout 76. A story that just keeps going from bad to worse. I have not played the game, but everyone I know personally has enjoyed it. On the other hand, the echo chamber of the internet tells me how it is ...

OP/ED: The Latina Wage Gap is Redundant

Nicole Acosta, Managing Editor

November 15, 2018

Latina. One of the common words I use to describe my entire being. But, it also isn’t just a word. It’s a sense of recognition for my culture, and how I present myself as a woman in society. That word shouldn’t be a way to define how valid we are as people, much less how much we get paid i...

Michael Dunnings, Associate Editor

November 5, 2018

What will it take? I have asked that question to myself enough times to make me believe I have lost my grasp on reality and that I have lost my sanity. The definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting a different result. In that case, maybe I am. Maybe I have...
