Exam week is right around the corner. Filled with projects and final tests, it is one of the busiest weeks of the semester- some will be at internships, others working at home- take time to relax - break for your brain.
As I prepare to walk across the stage and into the next chapter of my life next week, I find there are so many things I would like to say.
Student media is evolving, and Central Michigan Life is going to lead the charge in adapting the collegiate newspaper product to match the demands of a changing journalism and print industry.Next semester you'll notice that we are going to look at little different.
I came to Central Michigan University five years ago with aspirations of becoming a better writer and hopefully landing a full-time job after graduation.
It's been a long eight semesters, Central Michigan Life. We've been a good match, and I promise you, it's not you- it's me.
“You don't look like a lesbian." This phrase has become a normal for me, almost the expected response for when I come out to someone as a lesbian.
People seem to take their freedoms for granted here in the U.S., which I find both hilarious and frightening.When we speak about foreign affairs, we wave the stars and stripes, beat our chests and proclaim to the masses we’re oozing with the kind of freedom other countries wished they had.When it comes to domestic freedoms, the attitude seems a bit out of place.How many stories have you heard about a person or a group proclaiming their freedom of speech is being infringed only for you to look at their case and agree with the silencing forces?It seems everyone has forgotten that the first amendment was not created to protect favorable or popular speech; it was created to protect the outliers, the unfavorable rabble-rousers and the folks who were mad as hell and weren't going to take it anymore.The neo-Nazi offering hateful pamphlets on a street corner has the same amount of protection as a local resident peppering his lawn with political campaign signs.However, unless you’re from the homeowners association, not many people will ask the government to do something about the resident and all his awful signs.Disagreeing with or not liking what is being said has not nor has it ever be an acceptable excuse for squashing a person’s right to speak freely.A recent example, Northern Michigan University administrators and The North Wind’s board of directors went full stupid and voted not to rehire the paper’s faculty adviser or hire the only candidate for editor-in-chief for the terrible sin of wanting to push real news.If you don’t let a newspaper pursue stories as they see fit, be it aggressively or otherwise, you end up with non-important fluff in the paper that could only be improved upon by offering readers a free coloring book if they take a selfie and tweet it hashtag “readingdatnews.”The University of Michigan canceled, and then within 24 hours uncanceled, a screening of “American Sniper” after several hundred students protested it saying it did not fit with the university’s core beliefs.The group could have easily protested at the screening to get its message across, or encouraged other students not to go.
I was with students, emergency responders, and university officials when the Isabella County Dive Team pulled Michael Hartnett's body from the water.We stood on a line of police tape together until the sun went down, grappling with confusion, fear and the hollow numbness that comes with realizing a young man lost his life on our campus.Today's issue of Central Michigan Life brings back all of those feelings and I do not expect it to be an easy read for anyone at Central Michigan University.As the reporter covering this from the beginning I just want to say one thing to the family and friends of Michael Hartnett.
While Mount Pleasant receives considerably less snow on average than some other Michigan cities, it still remains a difficult place to drive for about four months out of the year.Sure, the sparkling, sticky snow is pretty to look at as it falls outside your window at night, but what about the next morning when you have ten minutes to get to class and forgot to brush it off your car?
The Oscar Nominations reveal what's wrong with today's society Growing up, movies were always a part of my life.
Since Selma has premiered in theaters, I have seen it twice…and I’m not going to lie, I’ve cried, twice.
Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex couples to marry in 2004.Just over a decade later, 36 states stand together as a majority, offering the same right and symbolizing the inevitable extinction of an anti-gay marriage America.The U.
The French satire magazine, Charlie Hebdo faces controversy once again.
There won’t be an end to the moral debate over abortion. Anti-abortion groups will continue to purport the existence of a human soul and spiritual value it holds, while those who disagree will fight bitterly to ensure these beliefs are not forced onto others.But even as this debate has enflamed passions for decades, recent medical advances in contraceptive options may make preventing abortions much easier, and create common ground that both sides could get behind.
Twitter and Facebook began erupting shortly after it was announced on Thursday that Head Coach Dan Enos is leaving Central Michigan University to be the offensive coordinator for the University of Arkansas.We have two words for him: Bon Voyage.The departure of Enos after five years of service to the CMU Football team came as a surprise, but not a particularly bad one.
It’s textbook season once again, and many of us are reluctantly clicking on to the CMU Bookstore website to find out just what the damage will be this semester.After seven semesters of book-buying, I would call myself an expert necessarily, but I have developed a few habits and tricks that make paying for my education a little less bank-breaking.Disclaimer: If you are a student in any of the medical or hard science fields, there’s not much I can do for you.
TO THE EDITOR:I write you today about a pretty serious problem in our quaint little college town.
In the spring of 2013, the ratio of students to academic advisors at Central Michigan University was 1,200 to one.While the university has added five advising positions since then to bring the number down to 600-700 to one, the ratio is still about twice the national average reported by the National Academic Advising Association.With advisors scarce and timely graduation hanging in the balance, it is up to students to take an active role in their own academic advising.According to the 2011 survey completed by the National Academic Advising Association, the average case load for one advisor at a medium university - one boasting a population between 6,000 and 23,999 - is 333 students.
