Opinion: Standard of Perfection

Alexandra Lisa | Staff Writer Mason holds unrealistic expectation that students must thrive. High school is the point in time where students are being pulled in a hundred different directions. Our interests aren’t clear enough, even to us, to know what we want to do with our futures, and that phrase “Oh, you have plenty of time to figure it […]

Staff Editorial 9/22 Harvey, Irma prove disaster to be only unifying force for divided nation

Throughout our nation’s history, we have drawn battle lines over political, social and economic wars. And while our differences always seem to resolve themselves with time, it is not until disaster strikes that we truly unite as a nation.

Opinion: Go be a kid

India Kirssin | Managing Editor Welcome to the jungle. That’s always my first thought as I enter the St. Louis City Museum.

While non-blacks are welcome, the vast majority of those who attend are black, a quality that has become increasingly appealing to some students. Founded in 1837, HBCUs were minorities’ primary source […]
