At the end of each semester, the routine is always the same. Finals arrive, and panicked students spend each moment cramming for exams. Sleep is an afterthought.
They will do anything to stay awake. The Starbucks and Red Bulls start flowing and continue past sunrise. All-nighters are considered a normal part of college life. […]
At the front of the classroom, the professor is explaining something, something that Cindy Lopez is completely unable to focus on.
Her notebook is blank, and her eyes are heavy. She counts the minutes until class is over, unable to sit still. She doesn’t understand how she can be so tired and still so energetic. […]
The Media Production Department serves the college by filming campus events — small and large — and editing them together to accommodate the desired message.
The department is made up of a team of three: Sarah Sheldon, who was hired last year; David Yonley, who has been a part of the department for 12 years; and veteran videographer Michael Forshee, who has 15 years of media experience. […]
It was summer 2008 and Taylor Eastep and his family were on vacation in San Antonio when he suddenly fell ill.

Dining out at least once a week is inevitable for most college students. We tend to eat out when we are bombarded by tasks that leave us with no time to cook a proper meal, when we don’t know how to cook or simply when we get a craving for a specialty item we could never make on our own.
I was under the impression that we the people run our government, and our needs, wants and ideals come first. However, I have noticed that big businesses have more of a say in our day-to-day lives than we do.
Back in February, I attended one of the Black History Month events the college hosted. There were several African-American students congregating right outside the library, but they had no interest in taking five steps to come in and attending the event. […]
The Math Spot was founded eight years ago because math and developmental math students demanded more tutoring time. Students expressed the need to visit with their instructor, but they could not meet during their office […]
April 12 was a typical day for Jose Rodriguez. He went to school, then to work at the Omni Hotel and finally to the gym.
