Ticket Pandemonium

We all want to see our favorite stars in concert at some point in our lives, right? But what price would you pay to stalk their website for tickets or stand in a crowded arena full of screaming fans? Well, for me it was about $290. Yep. But do I consider myself a bigger fan than the next person? Not really.

Dodge that flu!

I keep hearing time and again from the media that we students are going back to school in one of the worst flu seasons ever, and I’m wondering if there are ways to fortify myself so I don’t end up sick.  Being a student, it is easy to get run down and overworked, not eat healthy, not sleep.

GSU Leaders of Tomorrow

Even though my international status prevented me from voting in the 2012 election, I was excited to use what I had learned in my required American Government and U.S. History classes to converse or debate with my peers and parents and even have one-way arguments with the commentators on television.

Election night 2012 at GSU was filled with a similar excitement. Campus Events, along with Phi Beta Sigma fraternity and ...

By: Johnny Self

 

When I walk into Starbucks on Peachtree Street, I don’t exactly say “Can I get a Venti Mocha, no stress, with an extra shot of motivation please?” Usually, I just want a quick fix to keep my energy running.
