Domestic violence

Domestic violence has become a huge issue in sports recently.  Athletes of different professional sports incorporations have been involved with violence at home.  These people are role models to society and in my opinion they should act as such.  Also the people in charge of them should take the mistakes made very important and should […]

Fraternities are an important part of the college experience

College is on the horizon for most of the seniors graduating next Friday. For many of the seniors, however, one question remains: will they go Greek?

White House banning conversion therapy

Young transgender woman Leelah Alcorn took her own life at the end of 2014 at age 17.
