Thinking of what I am grateful for can be difficult. There are so many things that I can consider. Thinking specifically about the Army ROTC program at Shippensburg University, I cannot say a single bad thing about it.
Have you ever been in a classroom and had your professor call you by the wrong name? This name being the one that you have come to own as your identity — the one you have grown with. How would you feel, even after you have told your professor what your name is, if they still call you by the wrong one? Probably not so great, right?
For children growing up, a professional career in sports is one of the most sought-after jobs. However, once high school rolls around, the harsh reality of what it takes to be an athlete becomes overwhelming.
As technology advances, it seems as though people lose touch with reality more and more. Walking around campus, you will not see a single person without a phone in his or her hand or looking down at some sort of device.
With the presidential election quickly approaching, the media have played a huge role in how the candidates are perceived. Many news stations fit into the category of being primarily liberal or conservative. This year especially has shown that separation.
As we are rapidly nearing the election, it is more important now than ever to be informed about the decision you plan on making. Some seem to go into the polls, thinking it is no big deal and they can just vote for whatever name sounds good to them. But what people do not understand, especially this election year, our country is going to change immensely.
There was no shortage of music and pizza Friday and Saturday night, and that is quite literal. The opening of Big Richard’s Pizza Shop was the cherry on top of the sundae for Shippensburg University students.
Most students know that faculty are big on “debriefing” — taking a lesson, exercise or discussion and unpacking it, offering reflections and drawing conclusions about what was learned. The same is true as we move from the historic and dramatic event of a faculty strike on our campus.
Student media have played a huge part in portraying proper journalism throughout recent events, such as the strike, the political campaign and Black Lives Matter protests, across college campuses all over the nation. Having significant, real time events as the basis for student media allows students to shine and show the importance of student media.
Stay active and keep yourself healthy
It’s easy to lose motivation for working out and staying in shape when you come into college, but it’s more important now than ever to push yourself a little bit extra.
