With the heightened environment surrounding sexual assault and rape in the media and popular culture, I thought it was important to define sexual assault in a way that is meaningful. As someone who has experienced this and supported many friends who have gone through this terrible affair, I …

For the past year, incoming college students have been forced to listen to a disgusting amount of advice from everyone they know. I won’t burden anyone by listing out any of these travesties, mostly because it would be redundant and hypocritical. All I will say: the amount of advice a studen…

I turned onto Boone Avenue, my tires sliding over the November snow in Spokane. The Gonzaga campus shrunk in the distance as I approached I-90. When I reached the freeway, my first weekend on campus would end and my normal life begin. A rowdy two days of being the "visiting prospect": gettin…

Even if you’re not a science nerd like myself, you may remember learning about the genetic changes that occur within an animal population when a barrier suddenly cuts through their habitat. One population becomes two, and if the population wasn’t large to begin with, inbreeding will occur, w…

In one of the most democratic countries in the world, the most anti-democratic form of the United States’ government has determined the next president-elect. The presidential election is not decided by the voters, but by the Electoral College.

Gonzaga will proudly host the chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, a historic event not only for us but for the entire region, on Nov. 14. His visit comes in a moment when we should all reflect on our Catholic, Jesuit, humanistic mission, when STEM has dominated discussions…

Drug related offenders make up about 1 out of every 5 prisoners in our country’s state level prisons, and well over 40 percent of the federal prison population. With the General Election a day away, many voters are either not entirely decided on one candidate or another, or those who are dec…

Climate change initiatives aren’t the only green measure on the ballot across the country for this Nov. 8 election. Five states – Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada – will vote on legalizing marijuana for recreational use, and four more states – Arkansas, Florida, Montana a…
