Nothing hits home like a hurricane, right? Excuse me for my premature jokes, and an apology in advance for my remarks and sarcasm pertaining to this issue. As many U.S. Citizens may have already forgotten, the island of Puerto Rico was basically flattened by Hurricane Maria this past September. Man...

Violence is everywhere. We see violence on a daily basis but mass violence, especially school violence, is something no one should ever have to experience. I know this because I experienced it. I can better understand what the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida fe...

Contrary to the seemingly popular belief of our elders, not all “millennials” are lazy and unmotivated. We face one of the most competitive job markets to date - pushing many within the younger population to go above and beyond to get ahead.

Next week begins Point Park University’s spring break. Most students have been complaining about the break since the beginning of the semester, all because of the dates that it falls on. Personally, I don’t see what the fuss is all about. Sure, for years we have been shown images of college...

I’ve been a huge critic of Donald Trump over the last year. During the election I was a devout Trump supporter, and I really thought that having a Republican in office would be ideal for our country.
