Editor’s life better because of college

What could one possibly think to say to leave a lasting impression on students, faculty and staff at IU Southeast? For me, the experience of having the courage to step foot on a college campus once again says it all.

Charlie Sheen isn’t winning; just losing

How many chances does one get before management decides to give you the ax? If you’re Charlie Sheen, those chances were endless until recently.

Since Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington D.C. more than 40 years ago, you’d think people would open up to accepting one another. This new American society proves to be more disconnected with King’s message than ever before.

During my life, I’ve seen and done things the average college student has yet to experience. I’ve interned at tropical resorts, worked in the travel industry, worked in restaurants and cleaned nasty buildings. The list goes on.
