It would be an understatement to say that my senior year of college did not go as I expected it to. With the help of understanding and accommodating professors, I do feel like I have been able to salvage a worthwhile academic experience, even if it involved investing in blue light glasses. This is not to say that this past year and a half didn’t come with an immense amount of challenges.
I was shocked at how unfazed I was by this comment. As a high schooler, I expected that most college students experience a sort of wildly promiscuous sexual awakening. Hooking up was something to look forward to, right?
It's all about intimacy, baby. It’s tough for me to unclench long enough to decipher what that word means exactly. Honesty’s a foundational component. An openness and willingness to communicate your feelings regardless of how the information is received? Sounds like a drag.
“Asian and American.” For student filmmaker, Andy Nguyen Zhao, the “and” between identifiers acknowledges the cultural tightrope walked by Asian-Americans. Especially during adolescence, people of color experience a push toward Americanization that causes an obscuring of the self and disconnect from one’s heritage. Zhao explores this phenomenon in his latest documentary.

This week, with holidays quickly approaching or, in some cases, already having started, I asked the Opinions desk what their favorite way to bring some holiday cheer to their year is. Despite 2020 being an exhausting year, I've chosen to think positively – vaccines are being distributed, the main parts of the election are over and we have so much progress to make in this decade.
As a person with a uterus, it is terrifying to realize that Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the newest addition to the United States Supreme Court, has the power to reverse the progress that has been made in terms of reproductive rights for those with uteruses. Abortion accessibility is a major concern of mine. A person’s right to elect for an abortion should not be infringed upon by politicians. Abortion accessibility is vital for everyone, no matter what their background may be. Abortion accessibility is not about aborting every pregnancy but about being given the freedom to choose how a person would like to proceed with their pregnancy. Abortion is not murder and whoever says otherwise is absolutely not educated on the topic whatsoever. Pro-lifers, I implore you all to look into fostering or adopting the already born 400,000 children in the American foster care system instead of imposing your beliefs on those who did not ask for it. Our bodies are not political playgrounds for legislation. Let's begin to acknowledge and respect that.
It was five days before Halloween. I was planning out the costume I would’ve worn and I received a text from my roommate with a questionably risqué web preview. The accompanying message read “October surprise!” Could this be it? A news story as scandalous as the 2016 NYT’s report on Trump’s 18-year-long federal tax evasion?

As a student of the University of Arizona, it is your responsibility to keep up to date with the doings of the institution and speak out when you feel something is unfair. When you come into contact with something that the university has done that is unjust, there are steps you can take to safely organize protests and other demonstrations to make your voice heard. Quite frankly, the university owes you their time in respect to your involvement and tuition.

In smaller communities and for those new to activism, organizing can seem daunting. With a call for change echoing on a national and global level, the question of where to start can be answered by simply looking at where you call home.
The "predatory guy in an Anti Social Social Club shirt and Comme De Garçons Converse" trope is exhausted yet somewhat deserved. Streetwear’s overriding sexist and homophobic male audience has always been apparent, thriving not only in forums and comment sections but also college campuses much like ours.
The video above is footage from the Black Lives Matter protest in Long Beach, Calif., May 31.
Frog & Firkin and other bar-restaurant establishments have officially reopened their patios for dining services. Downtown social spots like Hi Fi are welcoming back customers on account of Gov. Doug Ducey’s green light to open as of May 15. Many people are already out getting drinks with friends, some sporting face masks and others opting not to.
Since Bernie Sanders announced the end of his public campaign on April 8, I have been torn about where to cast my vote come November, or if I should even vote at all. That Wednesday left Bernie supporters disheartened and outraged that our party’s presumptive nominee is now Joe Biden. Although Bernie will remain on the ballot, the end of his campaign has led him to fall back and endorse Biden to prevent another four years of Donald Trump.
