Let's stop pretending that college is ever a four year walk in the park. I'm not suggesting that all of you have to be as dissatisfied with your college as I am, but I think we could all benefit from a bit more honesty about the ups and downs of every college experience.

If the continent's leaders are not to bring about political changes that may have destructive consequences for the rights-based framework upon which the postwar European project has been built, it seems clear that they will have to demonstrate their ability to address the problem of forced migration at its source.

Many of the Yik Yaks of the world will continue to exist in the near future, but in time only as the seedy side of the Internet, the lawless part of town where law-abiding citizens with conscience choose not to frequent.

Why Colgate's Day of Impact Matters

Similar to the word 'like,' 'going off of that point' does not need to exist in our vocabulary. It's superfluous, unoriginal, and dilutes the potency of our own thoughts.

What Daniel Webster said two centuries ago about Dartmouth applies to my own alma mater. Colgate is "a small college. And yet, there are those who love it." I am one of them, but I am worried.
