Millennials face unjust criticism from older generations

“Narcissistic,” “entitled” and “lazy” are all common terms that older people typically use to describe millennials and younger generations (including generations Y and Z).

Party scene marginalizes some students

Having fun means something different for everybody; some people enjoy playing sports while others enjoy spending their day cuddled up with a good book. At the College, there are hundreds of different clubs and activities for students to get involved in, but for many young adults, the main source of “having a good time” is typically associated with going out to parties.

Common courtesy should become common again

Growing up, my parents always made a consistent effort to instill the “golden rule” in me, ensuring that I was always kind to everybody who I crossed paths with no matter their race, ethnicity, occupation or economic status. Saying things like “please” and “thank you” were the most basic things I learned when I first entered social situations, and so I have always expected others to abide by common courtesy too. But as I become more independent and experience more exposure to daily human interaction, I’ve slowly begun to realize that these “common” courtesies really aren’t so common anymore.
