Since President Trump ordered 59 missiles to be launched at a Syrian airbase April 6, there has been a flood of tweets, memes and online articles on the start of “World War III.”
Because IU is such a diverse community, there are very few things students have in common. Maintaining a relationship with one or multiple roommates is something almost every student has had to go through. Even the ones lucky enough to get their own room in a dorm probably have to share a bathroom or kitchen space. Roommates have a significant impact on our daily life and can either cause us a lot of happiness or a lot of stress.
Music is one of the great and mysterious things on this Earth. Everyone likes it, and everyone has his or her own distinctive perspective on what makes it good, bad, powerful or trashy. In college, we seem to embrace it more wholeheartedly than any other time in our life. Greek life seems to have its staple pop songs you always hear blaring from Jordan Avenue houses on spring days.

In 2015, Dr. Robin DiAngelo coined the term “white fragility” in a famous article discussing the difficulties white people have talking about racism. In the article he claims most white people can deal with very little discomfort when talking about different cultures because they have had very little experience with other cultures. Therefore, they react in ways that are not conducive to having honest conversations about racism and the differences in cultures.
In the last 10 years, I have been subject to many different personality tests. From the Meyers-Briggs in high school to the Keirsey Temperament Sorter in Kelley School of Business’ freshman branding class, I have been fascinated with people’s ability to sort all of humanity into neat categories and to make seemingly accurate judgments based on those categories.
Culture has become quite the buzzword in modern society, especially in the business world. “Company culture” has become a concept we are used to hearing about and trained to tune out.
IU, in the vision section of its website, claims to have core values including “excellence and Innovation,” “sustainability, stewardship, and accountability for the natural, human, and economic resources and relationships entrusted to IU,” and “application of knowledge and discovery to advance the quality of life and economy of the state, the region, and the world.”
When did we become God?
This winter break was one of many firsts for me. I went to Florida, walked the Atlantic beaches, kayaked with dolphins and woke up every morning around eight o’clock. Being an early riser during break has resulted in a very unusual sleep schedule for me as a college student.
