I am tired. No, not in the way that I need to sleep for more than 8 hours a night. Well, yes that way too, but that’s not what I’m referring to now. I am tired of hearing about the election. I am tired of seeing people I love and care about so upset over this election. I am tired of people excusing...

During the first week of school, an elevator in Lawrence Hall broke. As one of only four elevators in Point Park’s building with the most foot traffic, the broken elevator increased wait times and frustration levels for students who don’t want to walk up as many as 20 flights of stairs.

PRO-TRUMP: Jordan Slobodinsky Finally, the election is over. After months and month of campaigning and stressing, Donald Trump is the President of the United States. It’s an unexpected outcome to say the least, and that’s coming from a registered Republican who voted for Trump. The mindset going in...

Whenever the democratic primary election was stolen by the neo-liberal shill known as Hillary Clinton, I just couldn’t bow my head to the man and vote for her. Yes, as a die-hard Bernard Sanders fan, I can’t bring myself to vote for Clinton. She’s the worst. Because I believe in principled progressivism,...

If you ask a random student why they went to Point Park, chances are they’ll talk about the depth of practical experience in your intended career you can get here. While it’s fun to gently mock the phrase “corner of real and world,” it is accurate for our university: it emphasizes skills necessary...

There’s one thing, in these wildly partisan times, that people of all political persuasions can agree on: This election has been an unceasing horror show, a hair-raising look into our country’s darkest and basest impulses. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There is less than a week...

It’s the spookiest time of the year again. No, not Halloween. Scheduling is  upon us, and we are confronted with the terrifying reality of our eventual exit from college.

Let me make one thing clear from the beginning: I do not fully support the ideas or actions of what Donald Trump does or says.

The presidential debates this election cycle have come and gone, and all I can think about is how much I wanted Gary Johnson to be on that stage. The American people are forced to choose between an evil sex man and an evil email woman, and frankly, I find that deplorable. Johnson, former governor...

If Facebook has taught me anything, it’s that for every facet of your life, there is a corresponding life hack.
