To go abroad is to live a little deeper

Posted by on Apr 26, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but I never knew it was possible for me. During Christmas time, my family would receive holiday update letters. In them, family friends would always mention how their daughter or son was coming home for the holidays after a semester in Cambodia or Italy. As “braggy” as it sounded, I secretly wanted to do the same. I wanted to get out of Tennessee, out of American day to day living and...

As this school year comes to a close, most seniors are already looking forward. Future jobs, graduate school and freedom from homework are all possibilities to which Maryville College seniors can look forward, but one possibility some students overlook is giving back. It’s hard to imagine giving back to a school from which one just graduated, but that’s what senior Rebecca Glenn is already doing. Glenn, a business management major and member of the equestrian team, has started one...

On April 5, Pepsi pulled a two-and-a-half-minute commercial that caused controversy due to its tone-deaf attitude towards the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality. The commercial aimed to “reflect people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony,” according to Pepsi. The commercial begins by showing a man of Asian descent playing cello on a rooftop and then cuts to a woman wearing a hijab organizing photos on a table. Quickly after this, the...

Missing from our screens

If you receive your news through social media, you may have read an alarming headline: “14 girls have gone missing in D.C. in the last 24 hours.” While this has been debunked by various sources, I couldn’t help but notice a startling uptick in images of missing girls. At first, I assumed I was receiving these updates because I follow people based in D.C., but then people from other parts of the country began expressing concern. The girls, all...

Impoverished Politics: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb

Posted by on Apr 12, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

I was struggling this week to figure out what to write about, and then Assad dropped chemical weapons on Syrian civilians. And then Trump bombed a Syrian air-base in response. I found myself reacting the way I always do: skeptically, angrily and helplessly. A few years of history, culture and politics classes have taught me that United States’ aggression and involvement in other regions often does a better job of further destabilizing situations than helping them. The current state...

This much I know is true: God feels like love

Posted by on Apr 12, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

“I love you so much it hurts.” This is one of my favorite expressions and I know exactly when I feel it. Usually, for Thanksgiving, my family and I make the long and corn-filled drive to West Lafayette, Indiana to see my aunt and uncle. The trip is one of the closest experiences of Hell I can attest to in my lifetime: the scenery is bleak and the sky seems only to get bigger and greyer as we get...
