Dr. Alan Kadish | September 22, 2014 | Sports
The NFL may be the subject of most of the upsetting headlines, but look closely and you'll see that their understudies in college don't shine in comparison. Many big-sport schools fail to educate student-athletes on proper behavior.

Elizabeth Benedict | September 22, 2014 | College

Millennials: To Survive, You'll Have to Improvise

Abby Norman | September 22, 2014 | College
Don't give up; not just on what you truly want, but also the seemingly useless and boring things that you have to do "just to get by." Everything has potential, every single opportunity is a piece of your puzzle. It's just a matter of figuring out where it fits  --  and revealing the picture it creates.

This Isn't a Vow to Not Drink

Claire Dinh | September 22, 2014 | College

Laura Faye Tenenbaum | September 20, 2014 | Green
As a climate and Earth science communicator, I find this is the biggest challenge. We're in a constant fight to capture attention, to move people, to make them care about how their behavior is affecting Earth. To feel something.

Lost in Translation: Loneliness Abroad

Isabella Basco | September 20, 2014 | College
Being abroad this semester in Salamanca, Spain, the word 'lost' has taken on new meaning. 'Lost' for me now extends to homesickness, jet lag and culture shock. It's wondering if other students will ask for your company tonight, or hoping service on Viber isn't too fuzzy to talk to your mom.

Resisting the Normalization of Crisis

CJ Pine | September 19, 2014 | College
The past few days reminded me that I live in a scary world. War is real. Refugees are real people with real day-to-day struggles that I can barely imagine. As a result, I put them aside, effectually dismissing the crisis as normal.
