Students should take risks when applying to internships

November 19, 2019 Isabel Vega 0

A strong component in securing a job after graduation is in completing a summer internship between semesters. When students obtain and finish an internship, it allows them to gain valuable experience that future employers look for. An internship could also possibly to the company offering the employee a full-time job after graduation. […]

People should appreciate their co-workers

November 11, 2019 Richard Miller 0

An ice cream shop, a grocery store, a diner, a five-star hotel, an administrative finance office and a college newspaper. These are all the places — in order — where I’ve worked in my two decades on Earth, and each of them has impacted me greatly (not including brief stints in housekeeping and being a personal shopper). […]

Students should take break from technology

October 22, 2019 Viktoria Ristanovic 0

Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, repeat. This is the cycle I find myself engaging in for the majority of my day. If I’m not on my phone, I’m restless and anxious. My phone is my security blanket and the more I look around me, the more I realize it had become nearly everyone’s security blanket. […]

Students shouldn’t look forward to break

October 15, 2019 Len La Rocca 0

You know the feeling — two essays, a lab and an obnoxiously long online homework assignment, all due by the end of the week. You feel as though you are being held underwater by your academics, begging to rise to the surface for air. This is how many students feel before a break. […]

People should realize they’re not alone

When I transferred to the College last fall, I’ll be honest — I didn’t think I belonged at first. It wasn’t because the environment wasn’t welcoming or I thought I should’ve gone to another school; it was because I felt alone and different for being a transfer student. […]

Now that we are a couple of weeks into the semester, most students are beginning to feel the brunt of their coursework. For some, getting back into the routine of balancing work for classes and other commitments has become second nature. However, for others, the freshman class in particular, this adjustment period may be unfamiliar. Looking back at my own experience freshman year, there are definitely some things I would have done differently. […]

People should be proud of their names

September 10, 2019 Liya Davidov 0

A name is sacred, a title that no one can take away. There will always be someone with the same name as you, but none of them could ever identify with it the same way. It took me years to understand that about my name, and honestly, it still takes a lot of self-reminders. […]

Students should find joy in learning

September 5, 2019 Camille Furst 0

One of the most difficult challenges I had to overcome was my predisposition that whatever a student learns in college, there must be an end goal; a firm reason for each class you take and how it will benefit you in acquiring the “dream” job, as well as having the idyllic career so many yearn for.

People should use fear as motivation

August 27, 2019 Lara Becker 0

This summer, I insisted, despite the reasonable objections of my parents, that I return to my summer camp one more time to be a counselor. I figured that my summers of carefree cannonballs into the deep end and late-night bonfires were numbered, and that I could squeak out one more season by returning to the iconic place that defined my childhood.
