Most of the homeless people ask students or visiting parents for money or food when they walk by. Many students, who imagine that they’re doing the less fortunate a favor, decide to hand over the money. But stud...

Social media has taken away most aspects of our personal lives. Even though it’s nice to be connected to the rest of the world, there comes a time when the line needs to be drawn and we need to put our feet down on how much of our lives we put out there for all to see.
