I have had enough of watching Sacramento State students celebrate the campus closure due to the poor air quality created by smoke carried from the Camp Fire. I understand how exciting it must be that you get an extra two days to study for that exam you weren’t prepared for. Or maybe the “day off...

In the wake of yet another mass shooting leaving 12 dead in Thousand Oaks, California, many are left trying to make sense of the senseless. Two big questions can pop up after these tragedies: Was it an act of terrorism, and what was their motive? Being a veteran myself, I can personally attes...

To the Editor: Your recent editorial (“When will Sac State stop doing the bare minimum in protecting students?” on Oct. 10, 2018) does a disservice to the students of our university by perpetuating the myth that our drinking water is “filled with lead.” Sacramento State has taken significant steps...

I visit the library on campus to get assignments and studying done, but I wish people in the library would just shut up so I can focus. Taking phone calls, joking with friends and enjoying that smelly leftover dinner from last night as lunch are all activities you think would take place in the Un...

Right now, I’m in a state of mind. In a surprising move, Ariana Grande, the princess of pop, dropped “thank u, next” Saturday night, an upbeat anthem about being thankful for the lessons her exes taught her, and how she is focusing on herself from now on. I have no doubt this will be the m...

My favorite sporting event ever happened on Halloween in 2001. It was the fourth game of the World Series between the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks. I was trick-or-treating dressed as Batman and everything just felt right to me. Maybe I was just in my own little world, but in 2001...

I have lost all sense of hope for our country. I really thought I had lost it all already. When I watched those states on the U.S. map turn from sky blue to blood red in November of 2016, my white flag was at half staff and my wits at about their end. I didn’t think it could get much worse....

As Election Day fast approaches, it becomes more vital to not only be aware of the issues on the ballot but to actually vote as well. As citizens in the United States, our Constitution is based on the right to vote for who we want and what we want to change, and it would be silly to not take adv...
