March Madness can bring a range of crazy emotions, from over-the-moon ecstatic when your team wins to down in the dumps when your team, or bracket, loses. It’s hard to predict what could happen in the NCAA tournament, so I encourage you to embrace March Madness for what it is: madness. Fans should...

Last May, I participated in the first ever Relay for Life of Jaguar Nation. At the time, I had no idea what the event meant to a lot of the people there. As I reflect upon my experience, I have come to understand that like many other participants, I was simply going through the motions. This year, student...

It’s not uncommon for those who participate in Lent to have high hopes of succeeding in the giving up of an item for the season, but maybe find it to be more difficult than they were expecting. Most commonly, people vow to eliminate fast food, sweets, social media, etc. because of the challenge and th...

I'm a senior in high school that’s trying to up their grades, manage sports, be on newspaper, prepare for college and hold a job. Now, I’m not complaining because I love all the things I participate in but it makes things so much easier when my waitressing job is going well. Sometimes though, it’s ...

Earlier this semester, I heard two classmates talking about their math teachers to one another, one of the students asked the other who their math teacher was, and upon their response the student said something to the effect of, “Oh, the bad teacher.” Over the past 12 years that I’ve spent in t...

One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to was Robert DeLong, RAC and Big Data. In the spirit of the concert’s theme, my friend and I painted our faces with bright neon colors. The night raged on with drum solos, light shows and a modern art like performance from Robert DeLong. I was more than hap...

The inscription at the base of the Statue of Liberty, calling for the tired, the poor and “the huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” is the heart of our country’s values. Since our nation’s conception, we’ve prided ourselves on being leaders of the free world, inviting in the outcasts ...

Whether it be smothering lipstick on our lips as a five-year-old or trying to tie a tie at seven years old, we have all had that point in our childhood when we wanted to just grow-up. But when we were finally granted this wish, an unexpected antagonist in everyone's lives made itself known: acne. Althou...

We all have fallen for a false statement some time in our lives. Statements like, “I'm so fat,” “I have no friends,” “I look like trash,” things of that nature. You don't have to believe those bad thoughts anymore because they aren't needed and they're all false. This past weekend, I wen...

Two dollars. That’s stood between me and the video game. I scrambled around the house, desperately looking for a way to get two dollars. Eventually, my dad sent me to carry something down to the workshop in the basement. Giddy, I did it for him without question. As soon as the two dollar bills left...

For Christmas last year, I received a book called ‘Think Happy’ by Karen Salmansohn and after reading through all the advice, I made it my New Year’s resolution that 2017 was going to be the year where I was more positive. Unlike most years, I actually have kept up this goal thus far; when I c...

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, a large majority of us are extremely single and will ignore this special holiday as it passes. As a single girl, I seem to stand strong with an extremely unpopular opinion: Valentine’s Day is more fun when you're single. Unfortunately, my experience with romantic relationsh...
