Am I OK with graduating?

(04/04/19 8:46pm)

I’ve been going on these reminiscing binges lately where I flip through old photos, reread old essays, stuff like that. I’m not sure why. I guess graduation didn’t feel close until now. Maybe if I nestle myself in the earlier memories of my college timeline, the end will once again feel far away? That’s probably part of it. But mainly I enjoy seeing how much of a clueless cutie first-year John was and how much I’ve grown. Still clueless at times, but don’t I look taller now than in that 2015 Halloween picture?

EDITORIAL: Trump must revise his Higher Education Act proposal

(04/04/19 2:43am)

First instituted in 1965, the Higher Education Act plays an essential role in, among other things, providing federal student aid for American colleges and universities. It is usually revisited every four years, but as it was not reauthorized since 2008, the Trump administration is attempting to push a reauthorization containing several changes through Congress — which is already prioritizing the HEA. As Trump plans to alter the student loan repayment process, Pell Grant distributions and the requirements for accreditation, many are concerned about the future of American colleges and universities. While the Trump administration claims these changes are an attempt to repair the severely broken financial system surrounding American higher education, many of these proposed changes will actually harm those who depend on financial assistance.
