Students should prioritize their mental health

Written By August Stephens, Opinions Editor December 7, 2022
It’s the end of the semester, and I think we are all waiting for it to come to a close. If you are metaphorically skipping gleefully to the end of the semester: You have made it.

Fast fashion advertisements on Instagram are often scams

Written By Carson Folio, Staff Writer December 7, 2022

Written By August Stephens, Opinions Editor November 30, 2022

In the media, we are most often known for eating Tide Pods.
