Senior accepts reality

Katie Dugan

When I was a senior in high school, I thought college was going to be a magical, life-affirming experience that would be absolutely perfect. Now, four years later, I realize how naive I was. The most valuable lesson that I have learned at Suffolk University is that nothing in life will be perfect. College is not all aesthetically pleasing Instagram pos...

Urban crime is on the decline: Trump tweets inaccuracies and it’s time to fact check him

Patrick Holmes

It should be mandatory to fact check both what President Donald Trump says and his tweets. It seems that many Americans will believe whatever he chooses to say or write and by doing so, have shielded themselves from the facts. During his campaign, Trump sent out a tweet stating that inner-city crime is reaching record levels. This tweet, which is ex...

Editor’s Word: Goodbye to Journal seniors, the ones who have seen it all

We all had no idea how hard it would be to watch three seniors leave at the end of the year to embark on their own unique journeys. To Sky, who instilled the confidence within us to write for this publication and become apart of an everlasting bond at The Journal, we thank you. To Katie, who’s creative and bubbly personality emanated the office, we w...

Senior leads with a story

Skylar To

I was just another freshman four years ago with a cliché dream of going to school in the city and making it “big” someday as an aspiring journalist. I was hoping to get the college experience at Suffolk and started to think that I would leave here as just another number two years in. I got a late start, but fast-forward to the end of my junior y...

Like my college experience, Suffolk is forgettable

Sam Humphrey

I’ll be graduating from Suffolk University soon, and as I think about the school I’m leaving, I wonder how I’ll feel when I think about Suffolk after I’m long gone. The answer is not much. I’ve grown and come to see the world differently than I did four years ago, but most of those experiences didn’t come from my education, in terms of ...

Editor’s Word: Where has America’s credibility gone?

Now in the early stages of a new executive administration, the United States of America has found herself falling rather short of the once great-promises and principles championed by admired leaders and patriotic citizens. This nation is not as formidable and credible as it used to be, and that has critical impact across the globe. America has st...

Editor’s Word: Advising for upperclassmen needs a makeover

Graduating from Suffolk University in the usual four years is not an uncomplicated task; not because the academic side of the institution is outrageously challenging for students, but because registering for the necessary classes in order to obtain their degree is needlessly inconvenience. Often, students’ stress levels peak when they learn a certain class they must...

Degrade the North Korean economy

Donald Moskowitz

President Trump has pointed out the strong linkage between China and North Korea, and he correctly assumes China can influence North Korea’s weapons development program.  We must work with China on resolving this situation, and also on the Chinese encroachment in the South China Sea and the trade deficit imbalance. At this juncture, the North Korean nuclear missile program is o...

Rebuilding our Military with Trump

Donald Moskowitz

As a Navy veteran and a strong supporter of our military, I commend President Trump for initiating a program to rebuild our military with a defense budget increase of $54 billion. However, it should be decreased by $1.3 billion and that amount added to the Coast Guard budget within the Department of Homeland Security so it is not cut by $1.3 billion. Our military has dra...

A Word from SGA: March 23, 2017

Dear Suffolk University, We hope you all had a fun, relaxing spring break! Before the week off, SGA wrapped up our spring elections. There was a new Executive Board and senate elected to take over for the 2017-2018 school year. You can find all of those results on our social media, @SuffolkSGA, on Twitter and Facebook. This Saturday, March 25th, the Caribbean Stu...
