If the walls around us were crumbling and we needed to be saved, would you reject assistance from someone solely because he or she was different? If you think about it, that’s the general idea behind Don’t Ask Don’t Tell – that someone who is openly different cannot help or save you. Not only...

October is LGBTQ Pride Month, so we at the Journal are extremely confused as to why such negative news has been affecting the gay community lately.

Here at the Journal, we’ve come to the realization that crazies are attempting to run the good ‘ole US of A. And yet people still think it’s a great idea to follow them? We don’t quite get it. For instance, Christine O’Donnell “dabbled in witchcraft” when she was young. Who cares if she’s...

The Journal is making a hip, technological breakthrough that we are hoping will change the way people look at newspapers! We proudly introduce the QR code, or as some may know it: the 2D tag. Used a lot already in advertising (especially in Japan), this glyph can connect the world of print to the Inte...

President Sargent’s tenure at Suffolk should have been up a year from now. His contract was extended, as everyone knows, until 2013, amid a public relations crisis and national negative press for the school and the president because of his outrageous salary. But what if his contract extension didn’t hap...

Party Express is stopping by the Boston Common to hold a public rally in support of the fear-mongering and irrational mudslinging that unfortunately has become the norm of contemporary political discourse since President Obama took office. We at the Suffolk Journal object not only to their rally but...

SUNORML, Suffolk’s chapter of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, is working tirelessly with the University’s administration to reform Suffolk’s drug policies in the residence halls and they’re certainly making headway. However, at this month’s TSAC (Trustee’s Student Activities...

The Suffolk Journal’s office walls are peppered with awards. In the 1970s, apparently, this paper was really, really good. However, we haven’t won a big award since 1999 and we haven’t won an Associated Collegiate Press annual National College Journalism Convention award since 1979. Well, we finally ...
