  • Sallie,
    this is a very needed post. Thank you for bringing attention to this massive problem in this country. I also like that you suggested things that possibly could help. At least lowering the cost of college could be a big help, as well as subsidized housing for students. Nice job. Keep it up. 🙂

  • Hi Florentina,
    I really like that this article is so informative about an issue that is not brought up all the time. This particular group of the population does seem to be glossed over so I’m glad that you are raising your voice. Keep it up!

    This is a really beautiful poem. It;s like I’m at the rave (even though I’ve never been to one). Thank you so much for sharing.

    • very beautiful!! 🙂

    • Ariel,

      What a nice poem! I enjoyed imagining the sun shining brightly and more brightly as I read this. Was there a specific experience that inspired you to write about this?

    • Hi Ariel,

      I loved your poem! It had great imagery and made me happy.

    • Hey Ariel,
      This is a very happy poem. When I finished i had a smile on my face. Your line ” I was the sun” is very powerful. Kind of says ” it all revolves around me.” Great work!

    • Your poem reminds me of the same exact feeling that you had. It feels like your becoming the sun from the sense of nature to being a human being. This was very lovely, I love your poem.

    • Ariel,
      That poem was great it was so happy and it put a smile on my face after reading it.

    • This is a very great poem. It is very insightful and welcoming in a way. I liked it. 🙂

    I feel this on a spiritual level. It’s really terrible that many students today feel like they they can’t be the best that they can be academically and also being happy and relaxed individuals. I will continue to work on that for myself and if/when you find the answer please let me know.
    Ariel 🙂

  • Hey Sid, I really like this piece and totally agree with you. That Muslim ban was terribly polarizing and the fact that those countries don’t have ISIS involvement makes it much much worse.

  • Ariel commented on the post, Be safe 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    this is an incredibly strong poem and a very cool and jarring way to approach both rape culture and that double standard that exists between men and women. Thank you for this. I’m excited to see more of this type of pieces.

  • Quincy,
    I first would like to say how terribly sorry I am. I cannot imagine how you must be feeling. However I would like to ask you to continue to pursue your education. Please graduate next semester or next year, or get your GED. You have worked far too hard to let this be the end of your educational journey. And please, please, please do not…[Read more]

  • Anna,
    this is incredibly relatable. I think that schools are starting to realize this. In fact, my high school might be implementing a new schedule next year where the juniors (only them) can have a 2nd through 7th hour. We normally only have six hours, so this allows students to come in later and leave and hour later (although the seventh hour…[Read more]

  • Robin,
    I think this is a really interesting topic and I love TV. In the sense that I enjoy analyzing and trying to figure out how it works. I’m excited to see what else you find!.
    PS. I absolutely both love New Girl and The Office. 🙂

    • Ariel,
      Nice writing. This really offered me insight into your personality. I feel that I know you better now than I did before. What languages do you speak? Are you fluent? Are there any languages that you want to speak but don’t yet have mastery of? Solid work; I enjoyed reading this piece.

  • Carmen,
    thank you so much for bringing this issue to light. I love that you addressed the miniscule punishment rapists receive, and how that in turn urges people who have been raped not to step forward and report. I also love that you mentioned the frequency with which it happens on our college campuses, spaces that are supposed to be safe, so…[Read more]

  • Cami,
    I also have grown up around the arts and it breaks my heart knowing that they are so undervalued in our public school system. I think what plenty of people don’t understand is that the arts serve more than one purpose. Like you said, students do better in their core classes, as well as find a new hobby. I do think that more money just needs…[Read more]
