It’s a sad day when you come to campus and overhear people talking about, “another girl getting assaulted." The fact that sexual assaults in Northridge have become almost an expected thing to hear about over the last month is unbelievable. Just to put this in perspective, in the span of three...

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past three years, you’ve heard the name Imagine Dragons once or twice in your life. The Grammy award-winning band hit the stage at the Hollywood Palladium Monday night as one of the stops on their international tour. Red Carpets were literally rolled out by ...

The time has come again for CSUN's clustered billboards and t-shirts with over a thousand guys and gals representing their houses loud and proud in their new bid day gear. Yes, my friends, recruitment has come and gone and each house has been filled with its fair share of new members to represent...

Well, this is it—my last column for a while. Of course, right when I am getting comfortable with constantly sharing my inner thoughts and feelings, it’s all over. Now as much as I know you all will miss my witty banter and charming humor, I am proud to say that I have successfully completed...

I was recently told that I needed to get my life plan in order, which was funny to me because for the most part, I have always had the same end plan. And, as long as you're not killing anyone, or any other illegal activity, there shouldn't be any judgement on the plan one takes for their life goals. Si...

Stephanie's definition of spring break:Some time in between May and April, where college students throw away all of their morals and inhibitions—usually somewhere in Mexico or San Diego. They drink copious amounts of alcohol, take way too many pictures, that later have to be deleted so Grandma d...

I'm not sure how it happens or why but I feel like at the end of any semester, the time I have to get everything done just disappears.At the beginning of every semester the days just cruise by. You don't h...

At one point or another, most of us have hit a point in our life where we're a few drinks in and suddenly decide that texting the one person that we've tried so hard to not be a hot mess in front of, would actually be the best idea ever.

Working in a restaurant is something that I would suggest to everyone and no one at the same time. On paper, it is the easiest money a college student can make, with the least amount of effort.In reality, it is a soul-sucking black hole of a job that you stay in for your co-workers and the 150 bucks you ...

At some point or another in every young person's life, we experience being the third wheel. To those of you that don't know what a third wheel is, Urban Dictionary defines it as: "One who deters the socialization of a couple, perhaps when being invited out of pity or through a feeling of duty.
