Starbucks is a beloved study spot for IU students. With delicious coffee and a typically tame atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to disappear into a final review guide. Even though there are new COVID-19 guidelines, they might not be genuinely keeping their customers and employees safe.
As we know by now, the soon-to-be ex-president does not believe in science, and especially not climate change.

The death of Chadwick Boseman happened so unexpectedly that it felt like a rug was being pulled out from under all of us, only this rug is loaded with intense historical significance.
