Students deserve more time off, respective holiday breaks

Written By August Stephens, Opinions Editor April 12, 2023
At this point in the semester, I believe most of us are burnt out. The cyclical process of turning in assignments, listening to lectures, and completing group work becomes harder day by day. I have personally heard from a few professors that teaching in the midst of multiple national crises has been exhausting.

Students deserve a day off between spring break and finals

Written By Erin Yudt, Editor-Elect April 12, 2023
It has been a little over five weeks since spring break. I don’t know about you, but to me, it has felt like years ago. The stretch from spring break to finals is exhausting and feels like we can never stop and catch our breath. My classes have been emptier than ever. We need at least one day off from classes in between spring break and finals.

Teachers deserve better safety precautions for gun violence

Written By Erin Yudt, Editor-Elect April 5, 2023
Content Warning: This article discusses mentions of gun violence.  We are less than 100 days into 2023 and there have been 89 gun related incidents in school.

The Internet Archive should remain online

Written By Carson Folio, Staff Writer April 5, 2023
On March 24, 2023, a judge on a lower court in Southern New York ruled against the Internet Archive in Hachette v. Internet Archive, determining that the scanning and uploading of books that they had purchased for their website was copyright infringement. The Internet Archive operates an online “Open Library” that normally only allows one person at a time to lend a digital copy of a book for two weeks, much like a traditional library.
