EDITORIAL: Let love live

Some of Michigan’s government officials are placing themselves on the wrong side of history. Although a U.S. district judge ruled last week to invalidate a state constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage, the ruling has been effectively nullified with a stay, […]

COLUMN: The mystique of voluntourism

I’ve been able to save up some cash for travel after I graduate, and I couldn’t be more fortunate. When looking at opportunities abroad to do humanitarian work instead of having a “traditional vacation,” I was elated to find hundreds […]

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A response to Michigan’s appeal of the same-sex marriage ban

The federal judge who recently ruled that Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional evidently hasn’t learned much from the past. The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans inappropriately valued homosexual relations. Eventually, the people wised up and realized that […]

EDITORIAL: Professors actions have tarnished our image. CMU deserves better.

A professor’s duty at Central Michigan University extends beyond instruction. While teaching classes is the primary role of the faculty, they are also expected to serve as mentors, counselors and guides for young, growing minds. We hold them to the […]
