Due to COVID-19, this semester was not how I thought it was going to be, but I know we’re all in the same boat. On Jan. 8, I left my suburban Massachusetts town to study abroad in Athens, Greece. On March 13, I returned home — two months before I was supposed to.

The Coronavirus has been rough. There are a lot of adjectives that could describe the last few months. We went from hearing of a new virus that was infecting dozens in China to now being scared of breathing in the air around us. We are living in a real-life Plague Inc. simulation.

I think at this point, we can all agree that COVID-19 has really switched things up on us and left us reeling. I feel particularly bad for seniors right now; these next few months should be filled with spending time with friends, planning your next steps post-graduation and getting ready for…

So I’ve been thinking and I understand it may seem unfair that I’m always the one trying to get juicy details out of you. Although, that is what I’m here for after all. Recently, I received a request to tell my readers a little about my own sex life. So, here you go. You don’t know who I am,…

I have heard sentences begin with the phrase “no offense, but…” many times in my life. Spoiler alert: the rest of those sentences were never offensive. Not even remotely. But those sentences always contained the word “black.” People are afraid to use that word in front of a black person as i…

The Civil Rights Movement of the 20th century is portrayed as a successful protest and occurrence of the past. Its fight for equal opportunity and treatment between the white and black communities is admired and depicted as a “successful” one. Although modern day shows some progress and less…

Feb. 14, the time of year where couples act like everything in their relationship is perfect. When fights are replaced with chocolates and tension is replaced with roses, where boyfriends can be cute without their “bros” making fun of them and girlfriends can ditch the “hoes before bros” motto.

Our government is broken. There is no question about it. The United States government may seem like it is functioning, but it is not doing so in the interest of the people. Since the government is not performing its primary duty, something must be done to fix it.  One of the highest governin…

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a little commercialization and profit. The sweet, cavity-inducing side of the holiday is a huge part of this. Who doesn’t love to receive some kind of candy from their valentine? But keep in mind, not all of these treats deserve equal praise.

Dear Hawks,Chocolate kisses, candy hearts, bouquets of roses, lovey-dovey cards, dinner reservations and frantic gift-searching. Indeed, my sweet friends, you guessed it — it's almost Valentine’s Day. A day that excites and terrifies, a day that is thrilling yet daunting, cute but sometimes …

Lingerie can be tight, sheer, flowy, strappy — really whatever you want it to be. But it will always be sexy... because you’re the one wearing it. At least you were wearing it at one point and now it's on the floor. But in that case, I believe it has done its job. Lingerie can bring a lot of…

To be a successful politician, you must be one of two things: a Republican or a Democrat. As such, to feel as if your already seemingly minimal say has any impact in politics, you must vote either Republican or Democrat. Since the Civil War, these parties have stood opposite each other. Whil…

Death is a strange thing. At the same time it cleaves hearts in two, it unites people, particularly when there is a celebrity death. This impact is even greater when that celebrity is someone legendary.

Many people are inclined to deny our planet is in extreme danger. They choose to deny the facts that are staring us in the face. The wildfires in Australia are just one example.

A new semester is a fresh start. It is the perfect time to get what is weighing you down off your chest. Perhaps an ex? Someone who may have wronged you, screwed you over or ghosted you. Someone who made you not feel like the beautiful person you are. Since I always know best, in my humble o…

You’ve seen it on the news, read it in the papers, heard it from your friends. You see them in parking lots, your rich uncle just bought one and you might even be considering getting one for yourself. What am I talking about? The electric vehicle, otherwise known as the EV.  Over the past fe…

It is officially cuffing season. The weather is getting colder, the days are getting gloomier and we are all getting lonelier. At this time, some of you are longing for the presence of someone to watch movies and cozy up with. Even if relationships aren’t really your thing, you might find yo…

I think most of us can agree that the last few issues of the newspaper have been politically charged, starting with Derek Zarrella's op-ed in the Nov. 7 issue and continuing with the rebuttal piece and the letter to the editor in the Nov. 14 issue. As the editor who received, read, reread an…

President Trump has been in office for three years now and a lot has happened. Whether those things are good or bad may depend on what end of the political spectrum you land on. After reading last week’s op-ed titled “The man who saved America: From exterminating ISIS, balancing trade deals …

There are two things every college student does: eat and feel things. As a seasoned professional of both activities, I feel that when these things are done in tandem, it’s essential that the temper of each one matches the other to create the best possible experience. This is why I’ve decided…

A question that has arisen within the Republican party is how beneficial Donald Trump is to the party. As an avid political party fan and a Libertarian-Republican, I’ve begun to wonder the same thing. With the most recent events in Washington D.C. over the few weeks, it seems the Republican …

Do you think RWU is solely a place for learning? Maybe think again. Let me just say there is a lot more going down around here than just your grades. I know as well as you do that there are plenty of sexy times happening here. But I don’t just mean in your own rooms. I’m talking all around c…
