My mind was swirling with mixed emotions, sitting in the passenger seat of a mentor’s car my last semester at Point Park. We were driving back to campus after I photographed him for my senior thesis project. As we reached downtown, he said, “I feel like you have a heavy heart.” Tears welled up in m...

To be quite honest, Canada is one of my favorite countries. Awesome tourist attractions, the birthplace of hockey as we know it and great beer. It is actually one of the most interesting places in the world to me, and I would strongly consider visiting the country before you die. With all that bein...

Arriving on campus this semester, there are undoubtedly some changes we can’t ignore. COPA students have a new home in the Playhouse - a giant endeavor that took years to unveil. Caffeine addicts can rejoice in their new home at the old 100 Wood stomping grounds, with a name that sounds like a dad try...

The time we’ve all been yearning for is finally upon the horizon. We are another year older and perhaps a little wiser. We’ve developed portfolios, created works of art and expressed ourselves through our various talents. Now it’s time to say goodbye for the summer, and for some, to start their j...

I have been told it is something to be proud of. I remember getting emotional as a second-grader in an assembly where “God Bless the U.S.A.” was booming along to a light show in the gymnasium. I used to sport the flag on matching Old Navy shirts with my brothers, and I would even get a new shirt...

In the wake of a questionable decision to attack Syria with airstrikes, the internet has gone a little crazy. Now, I am not a supporter of President Donald Trump nor am I defending him, but was the decision to conduct airstrikes in Syria all that different from attacks that former President Obama had...

When someone dies, it makes you reflect on their life, their accomplishments, the way they impacted you. When someone young dies, it makes you feel sick to your stomach. You think about the moments they’ve lost, the time you still have. The Point Park community lost one of our own recently. It’s...

I’m not a person who likes to go out much, but the few times I have this semester, it’s been less than impressive. The first time I went out somewhere with friends once I came to college, I went to Cruze. This is a place I wasn’t particularly apprehensive about going to because of the fact th...

I have always hated the idea of “wisdom.” We always attribute it to people who are older, who have experienced the world in a more holistic manner than ourselves. But here I am, claiming I have some wisdom and getting ready to drop it on you. I’ve been going to this university for four years...

Being a United Student Government (USG) senator representing the Conservatory of Performing Arts is harder when people do not want to put their all into the organization. As someone who has served on USG for my entire freshman year, I’ve noticed that we’re only known for two things in this scho...

As students begin to pull together their last assignments for finals week, some of us will undoubtedly be dreading those annoying, yet necessary projects requiring group cooperation. Most students either love or hate these requirements that prepare us for “teamwork out in the real world.” Group d...

My first semester at college wasn’t spent at Point Park. In fact, it was spent at my apparent “dream school.” Before I went to my dream school, I pictured myself with a group of friends laughing carelessly about free food and pop up cafes - your typical university priorities. Within the firs...
