I find giving is often more satisfying than getting. This holiday season, get into the spirit of giving and watch your happiness skyrocket. One way to do this is by volunteering time and resources to those in need. Tresa Ballard, service-learning coordinator for the Sarbanes Center for Public...

I love the weeks leading up to Christmas. As soon as Thanksgiving passes, I have my Christmas playlist at the ready. I’m already planning what cookies I’m going to bake. I’m already planning what winter-themed activities I should do first. Once December hits, I like to start counting down the...

Communication is an essential skill in life. It’s what brings people together, develops relationships and gets us ahead in the working world. Today, it’s easy to communicate quickly. Emails, texts and calls can be made within seconds. But with companies offering high-speed internet connections...

Be accepting of older books, media

Be accepting of older books, media

November 1, 2019

A lot of people call me old-fashioned. It’s an ongoing joke among my friends that I’m 42, not 19. I guess you could call me “an old soul,” given my taste in music and literature. I prefer swing music to rap any day. I’d rather listen to Ella Fitzgerald than Ellie Goulding. And when it comes...

Thanksgiving is coming up fast. A lot of us are already looking forward to a turkey dinner with family and wondering which desserts will be on the menu. But while food is a great part of the holiday, it’s not the biggest part. Being thankful is right in the day’s name—Thanksgiving—but sometimes...

I’ve noticed that my friends and classmates don’t read much these days, and that’s a shame. Back in the day—as my parents like to say—more people carried books with them. Now we carry our cell phones instead. I’m not bashing technology. But it does take up too much of our time. I love...

Fall is here, and it is both a beginning and the end. It is the beginning of a new semester at AACC, and the end of summer. Classes are going full swing. The parking lots are full and the campus is brimming with students. The days of ice-cold lemonade, bathing suits and shorts are gone....

Social media affects image

Social media affects image

September 27, 2019

Growing up, I didn’t have to worry about the repercussions of someone snapping an image of me and posting it online. Employers couldn’t judge me based on what skimpy outfit I decided to wear to a party, or of me drinking underage. I didn’t have to worry if I was going to be fired over some...

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, we should all prepare to vote wisely. In this day and age, information on the candidates is available at the click of a mouse or a quick tap on a phone screen. But with more sources comes more room for error. As more and more people...

Give everyone a voice

Give everyone a voice

Editorial Board

August 21, 2019

We’re coming back to school this fall during a time of great political divide. Let’s work to give everyone we meet here a voice, even if we don’t agree with them. It’s easy for political discussions to turn nasty or backfire on those who have expressed an opinion. It’s important that all...

’19 graduates: Set new goals

’19 graduates: Set new goals

April 30, 2019

As Riverhawk graduates fly into summer, we should reflect on our time at AACC and redefine ourselves before heading to four-year universities. Instead of viewing graduation as the end of an era, graduates should use it as a stepping stone to future success. Just because some of us are leaving the...

AACC students can take small steps to clean up the planet—right here on campus—in celebration of Earth Day on April 22. First, students in Humanities and CALT can fill up their water bottles at those buildings’ automatic fountains. With this feature, students can place their bottles under...
