The transition from being a high school senior to a college freshman is a big one, and adjusting can be difficult, but it is definitely not an impossible task to accomplish. For most of us, this is the first time that we move out from under our parents roofs, where we must make a name for ourselves all...

Trump is spiraling and America is being taken down with him

America is not great. The United States has lost its morality, sensibility and kindness. We are no longer the leaders of the free world and our actions speak volumes. The rest of the world has their eyes on us and their judgmental whispers send the message. We are losing our core values. At this point,...

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. C...

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

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 i...

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...

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 l...

Like my college experience, Suffolk is forgettable

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 experien...

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

April 19, 2017
Filed under Staff Editorial

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 cri...

Gun violence has voraciously spread across the country and in the past few years, has been the center of media attention yet, it seems that very little has been done to prevent it.

Mental illness is not often taken seriously, even by  those who have the power to influence change. Filmmakers, celebrities and power figures alike could do a better job at advocating for those suffering. Last month, Netflix released its much-anticipated series, an adaptation of Jay Asher’s young...
