Current Perspective: Education is not a race

David Kirchner, Guest Columnist

I am going to graduate this month—after attending AACC for four years. I’ve been here so long because I believe it’s important to take your time with college and figure out what you want to do and accomplish in life. When I got out of high school, I knew I wanted to have a career that involved...

You’re walking up the aisle to take your seat with many others around you. You hear your family from a distance cheering for you as if you have just won a marathon. You stand and walk across the stage. Just like that, you have graduated from community college. Commencement is right around the...

Picture this scene. You’re walking outside underneath a beautiful, eve- ning glow. The sun shines its incandescent rays, now a fading, dim orange, onto the sidewalk in front of you. The sky above seems like it is melting from a creamy, light blue to a darker hue of red. Small oak trees lined in...

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” For me, passion equals greatness. I learned that after I dropped out of college. I’m the rst person in my family to go to college. After I graduated from An- napolis...

I arrived in the U.S. from my homeland in England a few months ago. My plan: to try everything. I’ve yet to have any Maryland crab cakes, which I’ve been told are the best in the country. I’m already making some friends and I’ve joined a couple of campus clubs. I want to embrace the American...

For anyone who has been near any kind of media since the beginning of the year, you know that the country that we live in has gone through some changes that for some, may not be smooth, and for others, may seem like just what we need. I’m watching the world change from my cell phone. We here...

There are soaring trees and beautiful brick buildings, lined and well-kept walkways, arching statues of art, and gazebos for students to flock to and converse with their friends.

Current Perspective: From the Navy to AACC

Francheska Salazar, Guest Columnist

February 1, 2017

In my 13 years serving as a translator in the U.S. Navy, I had the great fortune of serving both stateside and overseas. It was difficult transitioning to student life. I found myself feeling lost without the sense of camaraderie and family I had in the military. I had been a sailor for so long that...

I registered to vote when I was 15, eager to affiliate with the Republican Party. Since third grade, I have observed what is going on around me in the political world. I remember the 9/11 attacks and how, from my kindergarten perspective, the Bush administration took control and let the world know that...

I’m a student athlete. It’s a balancing act. I have to schedule my classes to accommodate soccer practice and games. Sometimes I have to miss soccer practices because of a required class. Luckily for me, I don’t miss many games. It’s hard to make school my priority when I miss important...

We at Campus Current understand that the students, faculty and administration aren’t used to having us around, and that’s OK. After not having a traditional newspaper on campus for more than a year, it is perfectly reasonable to be a little defensive or cautious when you find us poking and prodding...
