During my college career, I would have to say the biggest complaint I’ve heard voiced among students is that we all want nap time.
We bemoan our lack of sleep and our high-stress levels during the school year. Even during the summer, we hold down jobs, internships, research and of course, classes. It’s as though we never have time to stop and reset. We are expected, not just by graduate schools and future bosses, but also by our American culture, to keep busy and work all the time.
Once Upon a Time’s second season, which ended last month, has not one but three plots, plenty of new characters, magical places, twists and questions both answered and unanswered. The result?
I’m of the opinion that comedies, like horror movies, should be reviewed with a special filter.
Detroit may have to sell one of the few things that still lures people to the city: its art collection.

The over-priced and over-perfumed brand Abercrombie and Fitch is being chastised in the media lately for not carrying XL and XXL women’s sizes in their stores because the CEO of the company only wants the “cool kids” to wear his company’s clothing.
In 2003, 17,107 Indian farmers committed suicide. Many attributed this to the failure of the genetically modified cottonseeds the farmers purchased from the giant corporation, Monsanto, to produce a crop. Faced with massive debt and humiliation, many of these farmers even used Monsanto’s Round-Up weed control to kill themselves.
The morning after pill is a safe and effective way for women to reduce the risk of pregnancy by 95 percent, if taken within 24 hours of intercourse, according to the Food and Drug Administration. But despite this fact and his reputation as pro-choice, President Barack Obama recently opposed a court’s ruling to lift the age and prescription restrictions of the contraceptive Plan B to include girls under the age of 15, and to place it on shelves right next to condoms as an emergency alternative for all women. Currently, no one under 15 can receive Plan B without a prescription, which requires a doctor’s visit.

However, one case the court is now hearing without much fanfare could have huge implications for medical research, healthcare and our understanding of scientific research.
“What’s your major?” is a classic campus icebreaker—a fail-proof question you can bust out in any small talk scenario. If you hate small talk, as I do, the question provides the perfect opportunity for the other person in the conversation to do all the talking. It is the college equivalent of the adult dinner party mantra “What do you do?” but without all of the baggage.
Have you ever tasted saltwater? It’s not very refreshing. In fact, drinking more than a few cups worth can kill you. According to the United States Geological Survey, about 97 percent of the water on Earth is saltwater; the rest is in lakes, rivers, glaciers and aquifers underground.
With graduation upon us, many will be entering the workforce or going on to graduate programs. And this begs the question: Are we ready to be there?
On April 15, a horrifying event took place when a pair of terrorists set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon. The 24-hour news outlets covered it all day, reporting on updated death tolls and the like, which was understandable.
“Oh my Gawd, I love your accent.” This phrase has, and will always, induce a mixed bag of emotions that wrestle with each other inside my awkward British mind. It is, in every way, a sweet and sincere compliment.
College: spending tens of thousands of dollars to get a job to pay off those tens of thousands of dollars.
