High school immaturity needs to stay out college

November 19, 2012

Filed under Opinion

During my time in college I have met people who are extraordinary, smart, mature, talented and funny, but I have also met people who are easily offended, unrealistic and act like idiots at the smallest things. “Sex” is a word that is casually thrown around by college students, yet there are people who cannot stand the word...

Student reflects on earning his first degree

November 19, 2012

Filed under Opinion

When I chose to go to Seward County Community College I didn’t actually plan on getting my associate degree. I figured I would go for two years, because that’s how long people go to community college, to save money on my general education courses. I was only really concerned with getting a four-year degree. My feelings changed...

Filed under Opinion

At the end of every semester ,frantic college students stick their noses into books, pull all-nighters and splurge on coffee in an attempt to cram four months of information in a matter of days for finals. Some find themselves trying to decipher age-old notes or plead to their instructors for help, but why is it that no matter...

President prioritizes the future

October 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

Choosing the next leader of the country is a big deal, and I try not to take it lightly. There’s a lot of mud flinging that is inherent in big elections and I’ve tried my hardest to sift through to the facts before making a decision. I always leaned towards voting for Obama, mostly because he is already the president and...

Businessman has the answers

October 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

Four years ago I lived in Arizona and was convinced then that Sen. John McCain would have been a better choice for President of the United States of America than Barack Obama. But after Obama was elected, I bought into the glamorous words of change and listened to my peers who swore that with Barack Obama as president things...

Electoral college brings questions to voters

October 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

Citizens, representatives, senators, members of the Electoral College. Whose vote has the final say; whose vote is most powerful? The United States is known for being a representative democracy, so oftentimes the way people interpret it can be unclear. The question is inevitable: Does my vote matter? That is a fair question...

College grades become a big part of students’ lives

October 25, 2012

Filed under Opinion

College, so far, has opened my eyes to how great it can actually be. When I first started at here at SCCC/ATS, I thought that the classes were going to be super tough and the teachers were going to crack down hard. However, everybody I’ve met at SCCC/ATS is as easy going as my own mom. Some of my friends have postponed homework...

Filed under Opinion

Lunch, a student’s favorite part of the day. What is it about lunch that most college students enjoy? The variety of places where you can choose to eat are numerous. For the most part, my favorite place to have a nice lunch would have to be at the SCCC/ATS cafeteria. The food is well prepared, with a wide variety, and, of...

College is stressful, and finding time for yourself can be hard. Meditation can be a good way to concentrate and relax. Despite how old meditation is, it’s still relevant in current times in which stress is wide-spread and pressure is very high. Using this relaxing technique is very useful. I have had great experiences with...

Afternoon napping ideal for college life

October 9, 2012

Filed under Opinion

If you were like many children, naps were the worst part of the day. Naptime in preschool or kindergarten made you feel like a baby and you couldn’t wait to be a grown up kid in elementary school. If you are the average college student, naps are the best part of the day. A short break between classes and work means you can...
