While I appreciate the college’s efforts, I feel AACC needs to do a better job representing its African-American student body during Black History Month. In the Pascal Gallery in the Student Union building, a display containing documents, images and a video explaining the history of lynching in...

The 2020 presidential election is getting closer every day, and it already feels stressful as we wait to see who will challenge the president. If you’re not registered to vote or have been hesitant for whatever reason, reconsider. We live in a volatile time in this country and our voices need...

Small donations add up big

Small donations can make a big impact when it comes to raising money for charities and disaster victims. Your dollar or handful of change may not seem like a lot, but when you add it to everyone else’s, it can make a difference in the world. If each person in a crowd of 100 donated $1 each, it would...

Students should choose paths and majors wisely

Students should remain open to different majors and challenge any fears they may have of changing career paths.

Many students arrive at AACC with their minds made up about what they would like to do for the rest of their lives. But it’s a good idea to look around once you get here, try something new and pursue interests outside of your major. You just might change your mind. College seems like a good place...

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...

Practice good communication

Part of good communication is making sure your emails and other forms of written communication are error free.

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

Amber Nathan, Campus Current Editor-in-Chief, shares her perspective about being old-fashioned.

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...

Stay grateful this Thanksgiving

Being grateful can improve your quality of life.

November 1, 2019

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...

Read more, enhance imaginative thinking

Amber Nathan, Campus Current editor-in-chief, encourages everyone to read more to enhance creative thinking and imagination.

October 1, 2019

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...

Enjoy season, stay balanced

As the fall semester progresses, students should be sure to balance work and fun.

Editorial Board

October 1, 2019

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

Students should

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...
