I received many gifts from Mercer over the past four years, such as amazing friends, wonderful professors and enlightening experiences. Today, I want to highlight a fourth gift: critical thinking. This ability is one of the most important hallmarks of higher education. Unfortunately, I’m worried ...

Let's talk about gas, baby

Let’s talk about gas prices. As anyone with a car, or a television knows, the price per gallon increased significantly over the past few months. Most of the Republican candidates blame this increase on the Obama administration’s policies. I’m going to attempt to explain why oil prices are largely ...

A-Sun tournament, students can share UC gym

Yes, it happened again: the gym was closed the week before Spring Break. While I am glad that our school has had the opportunity to host the A-Sun tournament because I know it brings in a lot of revenue, I think it is unfair that the University Center workout area is closed the week of the tournament ...
