We need to address the stigma about mental health

Upon graduating high school, many young adults are persuaded to enter a new realm of life at college. Looking at movies, brochures and word of mouth, many are excited to start the next chapter of their lives. Amidst all of the wonderful opportunities going to college presents, there seems to be a topic that the university does not address – the toll these changes take on students and their mental health.

We should all question presidential candidates

The 2020 presidential election is still 14 months away, but with the constant political coverage, you’d think it was happening in just two months. Photo via Flickr Between the press coverage of Joe Biden’s alleged sexual misconduct allegations or Elizabeth Warren’s apparent “Native American” heritage, it’s no secret that 2020 is gearing up to be both a compelling and historical election. The latest investigation into a 2020 candidate...

Here’s why you should try to meet someone in person

We live in a world where the majority of us always wants to be connected with someone else through some sort of channel, whether it be through social media, text messaging or dating apps. However, I think there’s a lot more you can get out of meeting someone in-person for the first time as opposed to meeting him or her online. This may sound so old-school, and it might sound like something your parents would tell you, but I think a...

What we can learn from the Newark water crisis

Our front page story this week discusses the water crisis that is currently affecting about 10% of homes in New Jersey’s largest city, Newark. According to CNN, Newark city officials don’t know when exactly the city’s drinking water started to become contaminated with lead, but city officials told the news source that it was “due to the releasing of lead from plumbing and lead service lines on private property between the street and...

Student journalists are real journalists and should be respected

Late Monday night a three-alarm fire broke out in North Philadelphia, engulfing a four-story abandoned building in flames and forcing firefighters to evacuate the block. The order to leave subsequently displaced several Temple University students living in nearby buildings. This was when The Temple News, the school’s student-run newspaper and self-proclaimed “watchdog” of the University sprang into action. Despite the fact that they...

As you enter college, remember to treat yourself well

Finding yourself in college involves a lot more than just trying any and everything. Finding yourself is about struggling, and failing and moving forward despite it all. The Voice claims that there is a way “to be both enthusiastic and wary at the same time.” That fine line between those two types of self is called self-care. No, this doesn’t mean face masks and meditation; this means self-care in an emotional sense. This means...

Tentative Letter for Dr. Capra

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks for the College of Arts and Sciences.  In fact, it’s been a tumultuous few years.  But still, deciding four years ago to major in Classical Studies has been the best decision of my life.  I grew academically and personally under the intellectually demanding but endlessly supportive faculty of the Classical Studies program. I was privileged to be challenged by the demands of the...

There’s nothing wrong with attending community college

The two-year, “community college” stigma needs to end. The thoughts and opinions of two-year colleges in the past does not pertain to the current benefits attending community college has today. No, going to community college does not mean you are behind the rest of your class. No, going to community college does not mean you are any less qualified to go to a four-year. No, going to community college does not mean you will be stuck and...

Disabled students should study abroad

When I was getting ready to start my senior year at SHU, all I knew was I wanted to make it the best year ever. I was thinking about what I hadn’t done yet in college and the one thing that took over my thinking was study abroad. I had never left America, and it was at the top of my bucket list. Italy was always the dream and when I heard a Catholic Studies course was going there during spring break I thought it was the perfect...
