Editorial: Worth the Ride?

April 17, 2019

College students are no stranger having to use public transportation in order to get from Point A to Point B. In the Bay Area, it almost impossible for anyone to not have to use either the bus, train, or a light-rail transit. We are fortunate to have such a wide-range of services. Many students also prefer to use ride-hailing...

Keeping the Rich in Check

March 22, 2019

Money. Tests. GPA. Legacy. Hours of hard work. These are some of the things that can get someone into a prestigious school such as Yale or Harvard. But those fortunate enough to have money seemingly don’t have to worry about other aspects of admittance to a school ... or so they thought. The rich and powerful using their money...

Editorial: It’s My Money and I Want It Now!

We are always told to go outside, put our controllers down, pay more attention to the things around us instead of what's on our screens. Video games have held this stigma that playing them will just “burn our brain cells” and have no benefit toward our growth or mindset. However, this is not true. Video games are...

We need to earn your trust

November 8, 2018

Trust in the media has never been lower and it has never been more important for the media to be right. According to a Gallup poll, 32% of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. This is down eight percent from last year. This statistic is not wholly unsurprising since it comes on the heels...

October 28, 2018

“Vote” is not a bad word. But you wouldn’t know that from the way that many millennials avoid it. Newsweek states that only 49 percent of eligible millennials voted in the 2016 election compared to 69 percent of baby boomers.
