Senatorial Reform

By Nick Arbaugh, Columnist It should be obvious by now that our Student Senate has a serious problem.

Ashamed to Triumph

By Alex Romano, Opinions Editor Did I vote for Trump last November? Yes. Will I vote for him again? If things keep going the way they are now, no. That previous paragraph warrants an explanation.
