Hustle culture is toxic to mental health

February 24, 2020 Madison Pena 1

In recent years, posts surrounding “the hustle” have taken over social media feeds. This content can range from a motivational post telling you that you’re ready to “crush the day” to college students discussing the many business ventures that they pursue in addition to their school work. […]

Trump and Twitter are an unfavorable duo

February 17, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

In only four years, President Donald Trump has managed to reform America’s entire political landscape. What we once identified as politics under the Obama administration has been shunned — or, dare I say, no longer exists. Obama’s eight years weren’t exactly notorious for “compromise,” but it was surely more common. Today, politics are brutally merciless and a daunting question remains: What can we expect the U.S. to look like once Donald Trump exits office? […]

The Chip: Lovers Rejoice: Eick Introduces V-Day Special

February 17, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

Love is a wacky and wild thing. Love brings the world together. It can make the most rational person do the most irrational things. It causes a lot of tears — whether for joy, or for pain. Love is a really cool thing – that’s why the government made a holiday about love in order to boost a routinely depressed economy in a post-holiday season! […]

Everyone has mental health — everyone can see a therapist

February 10, 2020 Jane Bowden 0

The first time I went to therapy, I cried — a lot. I had no clue what Fergie was talking about when she said “big girls don’t cry,” because there I was at 19 years old, sitting in the waiting room with tears flowing out of me like a raging river as I filled out the symptoms I had been consistently struggling with for the past year: feelings of loneliness and hopelessness, lack of an appetite, suicidal ideation and more.

The Chip: Junior Confused on Why Coronavirus Has No Lime

February 3, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

The latest pandemic has been a source of fear and crippling anxiety for millenia. In the 14th century, rats carrying the bubonic plague killed almost two thirds of Europe’s population. During the age of exploration, Native American populations across the hemisphere were drastically afflicted through the spread of European diseases such as smallpox, measles and typhus. The end of the first world war saw between 20-50 million people dying from the Spanish Flu. The amount of lost life due to these pandemics is unimaginable. […]

After surviving freshman fall, students can overcome anything

February 3, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

As the student body returns from a long and well-deserved winter break, students begin to readjust to their school routines once again. When we’re home for such an extended period of time, we get used to a relaxed lifestyle. No early morning alarms, no rushing from class to class and probably one of my favorite perks — no Eickoff food. […]

American media unfairly distorts Israel’s image

February 3, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

During winter break, I had the opportunity to attend Birthright, a program sponsored by Israeli American companies that provides a free of charge trip to all Jewish adults aged 18 through 32 years old. I went in open-minded and came back with a realization — Israel is unfairly represented by the American media. […]

The Chip: New Year, New Who?

January 28, 2020 Signal Contributor 0

You’ve heard it all before. It’s the first day of the new year — hell, the new decade. You awaken from your deep slumber with a pounding headache and a low degree fever and look at the clock. Great. It’s 2:00 in the afternoon. As you roll out of bed, you acknowledge your disgusting and misshapen body in the mirror. Triumphantly patting your beer belly, you grin from ear to ear, give yourself a quick nod and exclaim, “New year, new me!” […]
