Students today may have a lot of disadvantages, such as the cost of tuition and rent and reputations of laziness, but we do have an important and wonderful advantage: social media.

Is the University of Utah teaching students what we need to know for the real world? This is a complicated question. To me, the real world implies living on your own, having a job, paying taxes and keeping up with current events. Another issue is that by the time we’re in college, we are already...

It's easy to get caught up in everything that annoys us about school, especially during this time of year.

Drinking is a big part of modern college culture. Whether you yourself are someone who chooses to partake, you’re surrounded by elements of it.

There you are, sitting on the first day of your first class ever in college. It might be Gen.
