Recently, we at the Journal have caught wind of Glenn Beck’s new rant/rave/ridiculous attack. What’s been on Beck’s chopping block most recently? Nothing too big, except him condemning George Soros as an aid to the Nazis and claiming he’s attempting to run a secret government to control the country’s...

We at the Journal have fierce and upstanding opinions regarding almost everything in the world. We have something to say about politics, complaints about the government, rants about the law, ideas for the university, you name it. But alas, tonight we sit here in our office (finished with production early,...

Midterm elections are over, and here at the Journal, we’re a tad bit confused. No, it’s not the fact that the Republicans took over the House – saw that one coming. And it has nothing to do with people voting yes on Question 1 in Massachusetts (although we’ll get to that malarkey next issue)....

President Sargent’s sudden retirement from Suffolk closes a muddled chapter of the school’s history, but it is also the commencement of a long, prosperous era in which it grew exponentially. It’s unfortunate that the last few years of Sargent’s tenure have been marred by the controversy of exorbitant...

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. This is supposed to be a month of celebrating diversity and aspiring for equality, but recent events have seemed to diminish both of those intentions. ...

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...

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...

With the advent of the Internet, decades ago, journalism has been dying a slow death. We’re around just in time to get our degrees for the death rattle. But now there’s hope! Respectable sites have been popping up left and right, in every city in the world, covering news, investigating, incorporating...

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 ...
