Students shouldn’t be afraid to explore new opportunities

College is the time for exploring who you are and who you want to be. The best way to figure that out is by putting yourself out there and pushing your limits. I knew that when I came to the College, I wanted to take advantage of every opportunity and experience I could, and so far, I’ve done just that. One organization I’ve surprised myself in joining is All College Theater.

Students should voice their political opinions

In 2020, politics is the single most polarizing thing in American culture. Some are obsessed with staying up to date with the latest news, while others avoid it entirely. There seems to be no end to the arguing and disagreements when anyone states an opposing opinion. This divided political climate, while not the most healthy or productive for law-making, has certainly forced people to pay more attention to what is going on in Washington and around the world.

Students should be proud of themselves

Now more than ever, there is substantial pressure on students to get good grades, make money and spend time with family. The list goes on.

People should find happiness within themselves

One of the biggest faults I have noticed in modern society is our false idea of happiness. It is common for people to think that happiness is based on how much you have or how much you are loved by others, but in reality, it is something you can only find within yourself.

People should value their achievements

For most of my life, I’ve had a habit of second-guessing myself, taking forever to weigh my options and questioning many choices, all of which were apparent to me during my time as editor-in-chief.

Students should take risks when applying to internships

A strong component in securing a job after graduation is in completing a summer internship between semesters. When students obtain and finish an internship, it allows them to gain valuable experience that future employers look for. An internship could also possibly to the company offering the employee a full-time job after graduation.

People should appreciate their co-workers

An ice cream shop, a grocery store, a diner, a five-star hotel, an administrative finance office and a college newspaper. These are all the places — in order — where I’ve worked in my two decades on Earth, and each of them has impacted me greatly (not including brief stints in housekeeping and being a personal shopper).

People shouldn’t be afraid to be single

You might think that some people are just made for relationships — sometimes they just function better that way, right?

Students should feel free to explore different career paths

When you’re little, change is encouraged. If you want to be a firefighter one day and a ballerina the next, it’s met with nothing more than innocent questions from parents and a shift in the types of presents received during holidays. So why is this necessary growth discouraged in college, a place where this growth is still occurring?

Students should take break from technology

Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, repeat. This is the cycle I find myself engaging in for the majority of my day. If I’m not on my phone, I’m restless and anxious. My phone is my security blanket and the more I look around me, the more I realize it had become nearly everyone’s security blanket.

Students shouldn’t look forward to break

You know the feeling — two essays, a lab and an obnoxiously long online homework assignment, all due by the end of the week. You feel as though you are being held underwater by your academics, begging to rise to the surface for air. This is how many students feel before a break.
