If your winter break was anything like mine, you’re probably still exhausted from a straight month and a half of holiday-themed family traditions. However tedious they might feel, family traditions are valuable for the bonding opportunities they provide, and college students are in a unique position to continue them on.
Since last March, everyone from Donald Trump to the WHO director-general has used warlike imagery to describe the COVID-19 pandemic. The dramatic flair is admirable, but not only is this sort of language bad at improving our public health response, it also reinforces harmful ideas about how society should address its problems.
Watching this past year unfold has broken my heart. As a college student who worked on a COVID-19 floor during the height of the pandemic, I witnessed both COVID-19 and the reactions of the people around me firsthand. The way in which these two simultaneous experiences contrasted was incredibly frustrating.

Since social media companies are one of our most important means of communication, they have an obligation to keep their users safe from speech that affects both the online and offline worlds.
The pressure to get “fit” at the start of the New Year is often rooted in a toxic mentality — rather than prioritizing health, resolutions to lose weight frequently stem from guilt and stigmatize people with larger bodies.
President Donald Trump and those who supported or failed to denounce his baseless conspiracies about the election are inherently to blame for the insurrection at the Capitol building. His nonsensical rhetoric is responsible for everything that happened that day and he must not go unpunished.
In a time when everyone experiences the social pressure to make New Year’s resolutions and continue the daily grind in quarantine, we need a reminder to be kind to ourselves.
When the University of South Carolina renames buildings, we erase the history of its campus and raise questions pertaining to the names of other buildings, statues, street names and cities across Columbia and the United States.
The Daily Gamecock went dark for a week last semester because, frankly, we were burnt out.
The people who stormed the U.S. Capitol Building Wednesday afternoon are not new, and they’re not going away. With this in mind, we can’t hesitate to call their movement what it is: Fascism.
Conservatives should understand the profound ideological hypocrisy that was at play the afternoon of Jan. 6 on Capitol Hill and accept the results of the presidential election instead of baselessly claiming them inaccurate.
College students need a stimulus check. Many students have to work their way through school and are independent, self-sufficient adults. They are not exempt from the pandemic, and so should not be exempt from receiving financial help. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act makes it difficult for many college students to qualify for federal assistance. But, whether you attend online or in-person, college is expensive.
Mental health trumps any school work, and scheduling out time to decompress during the week is a vital part of ensuring that your mental health remains a priority.
In 2018, I filed a lawsuit against the University of South Carolina and my art professor, David Voros, for harassment, retaliation and the following negligence in dealing with my formal complaints. Recently, two new lawsuits were filed against both USC and David Voros. As students and faculty, you have a right and an obligation to know how these lawsuits affect you too. And trust me, they do.
Despite all the time spent talking about how horrible 2020 was, we’ve spent relatively little time looking at why it was so bad. Perhaps it seems obvious — there was a pandemic, if you haven’t heard – but if we don’t look past the obvious, then we can’t expect 2021 and beyond to be much better.
I’ll make this quick. I know we all have finals and projects to be working on.
Democrat Joe Cunningham’s 2018 win in South Carolina’s traditionally Republican 1st Congressional District shocked the state two years ago. The blue wave did not survive 2020, though, and Cunningham’s 2020 loss to Nancy Mace reveals the limits of his centrist political style.
In light of an October murder one block from campus, USCPD should reevaluate its criteria for Carolina Alert notifications and use the system more frequently to ensure the safety of USC’s campus community.
Thanksgiving shouldn’t be celebrated with a sanitized version of American history, but it should be used to reflect, be authentically thankful and spent with family.
Despite all the backlash and usual detestation geared toward him, President Trump has every right to challenge the results of key battleground states in court and call for recounts.
