Kathleen Mackey, Editor-in-Chief

October 17, 2019

Midterms season is, unfortunately, upon us. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I personally find midterms to be even worse than finals week. Stay with me here.  With finals week, classes are over, so you can devote the wh...

Immerse Yourself? …In What?

Sophia Maltese

October 17, 2019

Ask people about their immersion experiences, and they will respond with a statement about how much they’ve learned, how it changed their perceptions, revealed their biases or just generally created an atmosphere of learning. These...

Josie Schuman, Op/Ed Editor
