 Mudblood is a highly derogatory term for a Muggle-born wizard or witch; that is, individuals with no wizarding relatives. - Harry Potter Wiki Out of the whole Harry Potter series, I identify with Hermione most because of who she was: not the booksmart hopeful that some saw her as, but as the misunderstood girl that people...

As the Fall semester comes to an end we say goodbye to students who are leaving us: whether they are transferring, graduating or just moving on for whatever reason.

“Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, and hide yo husband cause they raping everybody out here.” Never has a meme been more relevant.

Hollywood glamorizes violence as appealing in its’ rage and aggression. Everyone’s certainly heard the phrase, “red-blooded male”.

Sexual assault is the Jack-in-the-Box of the world. It happens, then goes away only to be repeated on another day, another street, and by another person. It gets swept under the rug, again and again and again. Much common ground has been reached as of late surrounding the Harvey Weinstein controversy; the fact that it was...

The wild, wild west is back, and it’s not a good thing. Unlike in “Westworld”, the popular HBO show that takes place in a Western setting, it has your run-of the-mill good cop-bad-cop narrative. This also includes mass death and chaos that is fictional and exciting, however; real death is not. It’s gross, and it’s...

“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” - Benjamin Franklin These words, spoken by a man who was the voice of his time reflect thought beyond his years. This is also good advice to follow. Sometimes we do need to stop and think, “Who...

We tend to judge people based on what language they speak and who they may or may not pray to based on their looks, and now, some go so far as to assume what someone’s individual political opinions are based on appearance. This is dangerous territory we’re in here, folks. It might be hard to cope with the realities...
