Our nation is properly ruled

The belief that each individual has a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is the founding doctrine of our country. Because each person being a unique individual though, the meaning behind these words can change from person to person. This is what makes these ideals so great. The right...

Recovering people-pleaser

Just like everyone else, I spent my time with acquaintances, taking classes, joined clubs and playing sports. As I got older, these obligations started to pile up higher than I could reach. Classes got harder, boys got cuter, girls got meaner, and reputations became a priority. So there I was —...

It's that time of year again where many universities are having a fall break and I think MSU should have a fall break as well. Of the 68 people who responded to my Twitter poll, 79...
