Election season isn’t the only time to care about politics; they matter year-round, and they affect simple, everyday things. Not all politics are about divisive, complicated issues. Many are about day-to-day things that make a big difference in the everyday life of college students like us. How...

From the balcony where I sat, an impressive dome above me, I could look down to the Senate floor. Lawmakers referenced notes, talking quietly with their staffs and readying themselves to speak. The air hummed with anticipation. Earlier that day, I had taken a break from my internship at the Maryland...

As editor-in-chief of Campus Current, this semester has been a stressful one for me. But it’s also been an experience I wouldn’t trade for anything. Between the steady flow of classwork and the pressure of overseeing an ever-growing newspaper, I’ve almost given up more than once. If you’re...

It’s December, and that means it’s time for finals and the holiday season; at least one of those, if not both, is probably pretty stressful for you. Fortunately, holiday parties give everyone a chance to blow off some of that stress by having fun with friends. But nothing puts a damper on the...
