As a graduate, I am quite detached from the happenings at Carroll however this does not mean I remain silent. An article was recently published titled, "Drag Queens and Jesuits". This article, according to the editor of the paper...

Over the past few weeks we’ve been subjected to some supremely ignorant and uninformed opinions by a student who’s naming is not warranted. I too am infuriated that his brazen hate speech is being published in th...

My first encounter with Declan Leary’s Op/Ed column was three weeks ago when he wrote on the tobacco policy at John Carroll. While I disagreed with the content of the article and thought it was almost satirical, I was not ove...

I’d like to take a few hundred words and contribute to the ongoing CN debate around masculinity, the Drag Show, and Catholicism.  Rather than trot out the usual masculinity debate, as an alternative, I present the idea of p...
