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...

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...

Current Perspective: Why I voted for Donald Trump

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...

Campus Current is here for the truth; here’s how you can help

Campus Current editors and reporters meet every Thursday at 3:15 to pitch story ideas.

November 30, 2016

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...

Jessica Lease, Guest Columnist

October 31, 2016

I am 19 years old and a sophomore at AACC. This year’s election will be my first time voting. I am going to vote because I have the right to vote. I am a strong believer in using that right because of the amount of people who fought for us to have it. Many people think that their one vote will...

On campus you’re bound to find your sense of self, personality

Students gather with friends in the Student Union building to play the fantasy-inspired card game, Magic: The Gathering.

October 31, 2016

We all went through high school with people who may have been a little out of the ordinary with their approach to being social. They may have sat at a different lunch table, worn different clothes, shown their love for things that were out of the mainstream; the list can go on. But with those differences...

Current Perspective: Boxer, mother, student

September 30, 2016

I’m a mom/student. Challenging isn’t a strong enough word for it. Have you ever gone too far out into the ocean, and the waves start beating the crap out of you, and you get really scared and pray you can get back to where your toes touch? It’s like that. My daily struggles are mostly environmental....
