Want to know what catches the millennial’s eye? Follows, likes, and retweets. The newest iPhone glued to perfectly manicured hands, a 17-year-old posing on Instagram in risqué ensembles, and filters that seamlessly accentuate flirty eyes and puckered lips.

Kaitlin Mahar

February 3, 2016

We hear about it all the time. The man who grew up in a small apartment with his middle class parents and six siblings who went on to build an oil empire that still stands strong today.

The Charger Bulletin

November 25, 2015

I’m writing this article in reaction to the SigSuit article published in last week’s The Charger Bulletin. Or, more specifically, the comments published online about the article.

Courtney Brooks

September 9, 2015

As a communication major, I was surprised to find that multiple classes of mine this year have been focusing on the issue of homelessness both locally, nationwide, and worldwide. Although this isn’t what you typically expect a communications class to hone in on, within just the first two weeks I hav...

The WPE

Samantha Higgins

April 22, 2015

We’re all required to take the WPE to graduate. For those of you who don’t know, that’s the Writing Proficiency Examination. If you ask me, it’s more like a Waste of Precious Energy. We all have to take English classes as part of our core requirements, so why are we then required to take ...

The problem with society

The Charger Bulletin

April 22, 2015

Standing up for what you believe in is never easy, but it is even harder when your beliefs come with some sort of negative connotation from society.

Courtney Brooks

March 4, 2015

Blue and black or white and gold? If you know what I am referring to, you are most definitely rolling your eyes right now and if you don’t, well then I applaud you for not succumbing to this pointless nonsense that makes up generation Y. The much older and much wiser always have something negativ...

My 21st birthday

Samantha Higgins

February 25, 2015

I’m not personally one for birthdays, and I don’t definitely care much for mine. I usually just go along with the festivities for everyone else’s; I guess I am just not a celebration person. I had a Sweet 16—it wasn’t like the T.V show, nothing crazy, but it was perfect for me. My mom threw m...

Courtney Brooks

February 11, 2015

If there is one thing men have been falsely led to believe their entire lives, it’s that every kiss begins with “K.”  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, that little jingle put out by Kay Jewelers is more prevalent than ever, but it’s a lie.  No kiss ever begins with K.  Matter...

In defense of “The Jerk”

Caitlin Duncan

February 11, 2015

You know him; you know exactly who he is. He sits across the room, looking careless and cool. He oozes overconfidence and reeks of arrogance. He looks your way and grins. You look away in annoyance and disgust. He’s not at all your type; he’s a jerk. You don’t even need to know him to tell. He has the look of a jerk. The way he walks wit...
