Many have a not-so-guilty pleasure of watching or playing certain television shows, movies or video games that have reputations for being violent or overtly sexual. Mine is Game of Thrones. Yours might be American Horror Story, Vikings, American Gods, the Walking Dead, Riverdale, or any other number...

Have you ever walked out of a job interview thinking it went perfectly and that you’re completely qualified, only to end up not getting the job? Well if you’re not white, a female or a parent, then I may know why. Luckily, the University of Utah is a socially apt institute and contains classes that...

I know it's hard to believe, but "Donald McRonald" has struck again, putting his enormous clown feet back into his mouth. During the KKK and Neo-Nazi gatherings in Charlottesville, Donald Trump addressed it by saying that there was violence on “many sides," as if the issue of racism is like a Dungeons...

About a week ago, Taylor Swift released her new song and video. As someone who has an emotional attachment to the artist, I'm essentially conditioned to enjoy every song she puts out. More than that, however I enjoyed the song because it harnesses a catchy Brittany Spears vibe, but stays true to classic...

As school starts up our wallets begin to empty once again. The most stressful part about college for me isn't driving 45 minutes every day to commute or writing final essays. It's getting textbooks. It's no secret that textbooks can be expensive, and of course, there are ways to work around it. There...

"Game of Thrones" is coming to an end. As the series has progressed, fan-favorite Daenerys Targaryen has developed a reputation among fans as  the "Mad Queen" and a terrorist.

Okay, athletes. I'm going to say something that will probably make you hate me. I don't think golf is a real sport. Full disclosure: I'm not a fan of sports in general, and I've only played golf once, but all the men in my life enjoy the sport, and so do some of the women. Don't worry, they'll hate me...

Students of the University of Utah all know the struggle of walking from class to class in the murderous heat of late August or the unmerciful frigidness of January. After all, our campus is huge, and there’s a lot of ground to cover.

The best thing about America is that we have the freedom to do nearly anything we want, as long as we pay our taxes. If we want to go to college and become successful business people, we can. If we want to spend our lives "wrong" part-time and do nothing but watch movies with our free time, we can. If...

It has been said that if something isn’t worth fighting for then it isn’t worth having, and this has been especially said about love. After all, where’s the satisfaction in something if it came easily? The beginning part of a relationship is often about the chase, the dating, the testing to see...
