Students Unite to Ignite Social Rights

By Aaron Hansen        Since the contentious 2016 election, young people all over the nation have been seeking ways to have their voices heard and much of that has resulted in political activism across college campuses.
Most recently, the University of Florida held a multi-media theatre piece called, “Voices from the March” which was put on by the UF College of the Arts, the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and the UF Center for Gender, Sexualities and Women’s Studies Research.
        Created from oral history narratives from the Women’s March on Washington along with the students responsible for documenting those that participated, Voices from the March was directed by Jeffrey Pufahl.
       A current student and a former student went on Saturday, January 27th and saw this theatre experience.
       “I loved it. It not only inspired me to participate in marches for social justice, it inspired me as an actor to put my all into our current plays. There was a very positive…

A Call For Help

By Makou Lin        They tell us only to run and hide. For they are armed, and you are not. You must wait in fear until someone comes and saves you. But that’s not TRUE! No situation is certain, and no future is clear. What seems like uncertainty, can be turn to courage. Courage to stand your ground, even in the face of death, can saves lives.
As an LSSC student, every new day is always filled with uncertainty. With dozens of daily visitors, students must know how to react when there is unusual activity on campus. That’s why LSSC has teamed up with ALICE Training Institute, giving the students the opportunity to attend an on-campus ALICE Training: Active Shooter Response Training Workshop. The training workshop will focus on providing students with proper emergency techniques and safety measures against intruders. Instructors will be guiding students through 4 stimulation-based drills, including: run and hide techniques, lockdown, barricading, and countering. Stimulation drill…

Why You Shouldn't Drop Out Of College

By KhrystyneBarnett       College is an institution where you aim to receive higher education in hopes of a better life. What they don’t tell you is how stressful college is. College can bring out the worst and best of people. Sometimes the stress gets so bad that students start to wonder if college is really for them.  But, don’t worry; you have made the right decision! 
        College is tough for a reason, and that reason is to prepare you for what your career may entail. College is not only great for preparing, but also hidden with many different opportunities. In fact, opportunities are more present at colleges, then out in the real world. Companies are seeking young driven adults to make the next generation of leaders.
        Colleges also connects you with many different people that come from all walks of life. Meeting these people and becoming friends can help you learn new experiences, new lessons, and be educated about different cultures.

By Renata Gomes Martins

The Face with Tears of Joy emoji is the number one most used emoji in the world, according to Apple Inc. Happiness seems to be what we all want to convey; however, do we really know how we can be truly happy? Research shows that the happiness formula is rather simple.

The idea is simple; we must stop focusing on what we don’t have, and instead, appreciate what we already have.
Thus, to start adjusting your perspective, simply write down three new things for which you are grateful each day. Achor has found that this simple task changes your brain’s chemistry and allows you to look at the world positively. Really, it is just that easy. Gratefulness is the s…
