Sally Seahawk, Contributing Writer

April 17, 2019

My best friend and I aren’t speaking. I largely feel like it’s her fault so should I wait for her to reach out to me or vice versa? Even the closest of friends have disagreements or falling outs. It’s a part of life. People are unpredictable, and sometimes people change. In my humble opinion,...

This is especially clear in a...

A friend of mine has really bad hygiene. How do I go about breaking it to him? We all know at least one person who could stand to take full advantage of a basic hygiene 101 lesson. Whether it's their physical stench or dental instability, it’s obvious that this person does not know how to sufficie...

The SheHawk: Why Campus Involvement Really Matters

Cierra Noffke, Contributing Writer

April 8, 2019

We humans tend to wear words down, use them too much, fall into periodic routines. It is imperative we return to words that have lost their meaning in the chaos of our fast-paced lives and learn them all over again. "Campus involvement," for example, are two words we know and understand because of...

I’m more than halfway through with my sophomore year in college and I hate my major. What should I do? Picking up and starting over in all instances can be terrifying.

I’m not doing well in one of the classes that I need to graduate. How do I reach out to my professor this late in the semester? There’s something about spring semester that’s just harder than the fall. Maybe it’s because the weather is nicer and we’re that much closer to summer. Or maybe i...

In my mind I’m still on Spring Break, how do I refocus myself to finish strong for the rest of the semester? Fall break and spring break are especially hard to recover from.
