Senior column: This was such a waste of my time

Sitting at a desk in Fahy Hall classroom 123, I gazed out the window at South Orange Avenue, watching cars whip down the street. I was trying to pass the time in my Logic class – or was it some music class? Or was it that class I took in which we talked about mazes for an entire semester?

Professors should permit mental health days

Some days it comes with absolutely no warning. My shrill alarm wakes me up in the morning. I groggily roll over in bed to shut it off and internally groan, thinking of the day ahead. And this isn’t just an ‘I’m still tired’ groan. No. This is a ‘I truly don’t think I can make it through the day’ groan.
