Reflection on Bernie Sanders in Albany

Bernie Sanders has been a busy man. Yesterday he won the West Virginia Democratic primary by a margin of about 16%. Even though he lost the primary in New York on April 19, campaigned almost incessantly in the state, taking a short break to fly to the Vatican City for a meeting on climate change. I was lucky to hear about his April 11 rally in Albany only the day before it happened, and decided I would skip my evening geology class to see if I could make it into the rally. I ended up standing about thirty feet behind Bernie...

But all of that seems useless when you really can’t experience what life is really like here. When I was looking at colleges, I dreamed of having a one-week trial at every...

Back With U

Today marks the second Monday of winter term.  It was 10 degrees this morning at 8 AM. But despite the lovely weather, this term will be my second at Union and I feel completely comfortable and so happy to be back.  One thing about first term as a freshman is that you plan to have all this time to do whatever you want.  Yet in reality it seems like you’re busy all the time even if you only have a few extracurriculars.  Basically, you have to learn time management.  Going into my second term I feel ready to take on...
