OPINION: Protesting for a reason

Last week, I stumbled upon a protest happening in front of the university’s administration building. The protestors were standing silently, and I feigned to see what was going on, before I realized it was in honor of Trayvon Martin’s birthday. Their protest seemed to rouse some negative opinions, because I overheard people saying their signs were “rude” and out of place. It seemed odd that a silent protest would stir such negative comments, but that leads me to my overall opinion of the situation: Read more

OPINION: Hulu vs. Netflix

There are a lot of streaming services, but the two most popular are Hulu and Netflix. They both have a different platform of content. Netflix has a wide set selection of movies and older TV shows, but Hulu has a larger collection of current TV shows and a smaller selection of movies. So what I’m thinking is, which one is better for the best price? Read more

OPINION: Diamond rings aren’t everything

Do you know the true meaning of Valentine’s Day? Probably not. Like the majority of people, you might think Valentine’s Day is all about romance, giving and receiving chocolates and flowers and going out for a nice dinner.

OPINION: Tired? You're only 40 percent done!

Being a college student is a multi-faceted role that demands a level of effort that, most of the time, doesn’t seem attainable. Putting school in the center of your metaphorical universe, what generally orbits around it would be work, clubs, student organizations, mental and physical health and lending whatever leftover time you have to sustaining a social life. Throw in some seasonal disadvantages, such as midterms and finals, and you have yourself a good, old-fashioned struggle for motivation. When balance seems to be lost in your world of responsibilities, it can be easy to let the most intimidating of the bunch, also known as your college education, get the short end of the stick.

COLUMN: Nightmare on 1 National Championship Drive in full effect

You’d have to go back to the year when the original "Nightmare on Elm Street" film was released to find the last time when Arizona men’s basketball lost five games in a row. That’s 35 years ago. After getting slashed by a different version of Freddy Krueger – the Washington State Cougars in this case – the Wildcats are in their own version of Nightmare on 1 National Championship Drive. Granted, it’s not quite as catchy, but we’re in the midst of Arizona’s horror story nonetheless. Read more
