The importance of voting continues to be underestimated, especially by students. The voter turnout is usually low for people in this age group, with only 17 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds casting a ballot in the 2014 elections. There needs to be more awareness at USC of the importance of this civic duty because it determines the future of our country, and student voices need to be heard.

It is strange what can change in just ten years.
Pets, specifically dogs and cats, are able to bring people happiness and comfort and definitely have a place on college campuses. They do not, however, have a place in residence halls.
College is presented as a time of freedom and exploration while discovering life as an adult. Students, however, are not as free to adulthood as they may believe.
Tabletop games are an excellent pastime, but college students often overlook them. The stereotypical view of tabletop and board games is that they are either extremely nerdy or generally boring. In reality, they are so much more.
One of the main questions many students are asking in college is, “How will this get me a job?” And a lot of people will respond with a (somewhat condescending and redundant) response that it’s not for a job, but for a career.
As students part from binge-watching sessions, traveling and resting to make their way back to campus, the excitement of spring semester is not too far behind. Many others are finishing up their first year, or for some students like myself, are returning for their last semester at USC. No matter how long you’ve attended USC, the same feeling of anticipation and excitement for the spring semester is always strong.
The question of privacy has been under scrutiny since gossip news and mass media have become increasingly popular social media formats. Until recent years, only celebrities were under the steady eye of shady entertainment in the guise of journalism, but now it seems there are more and more accounts springing up on social media that treat college students as if their lives are equal to D-list celebrity drama.
Social media has become a grand medium for how we communicate with and react to our world. Because of this, throughout 2018, some people’s off-handed posts caused some major problems. There are two major lessons we can take from these mishaps to make 2019 social media interactions a bit more palatable: be respectful and check for accuracy before posting.
Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter are all revolutionary social media platforms that are the cornerstone of modern day social media usage and the most commonly used apps, but what if I told you that eventually some of these social media sites would lose their status and people wouldn’t really use them anymore?
This is the last time I get to write one of these. Barring something unforeseen, this is the last thing I'll ever write for The Daily Gamecock. So that's weird.
Student Government, to many, isn’t an everyday concern. After all, despite record turnout in the last election, only 27.3 percent of the student body voted.
Last week, Student Government hosted a self-indulgent “Student Government Fall Awards,” where the only awards I could hear over the crowd that paid no attention to the “ceremony” were “Most Innovative Piece of Legislation," “Best Senate Committee” and “Unsung Hero." The rest of the night not characterized by an unruly mob was reflective of the mob’s real desire: to enjoy a party in an expensive art gallery on the university's dime.
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the holiday season is upon us. Retail stores are displaying Christmas trees and festive decorations, and storefronts are starting to resemble the inside of a snow globe that relays a warm and happy time of year. Cliche holiday movies are going for a more lucrative approach.
When I saw the trailer for the upcoming "Lion King" remake, I couldn’t help but wonder what the point is. The original movie won’t be improved upon in any meaningful way, and this hollow CGI cash-grab will never supplant the 1994 version in the public consciousness. The only reason this movie is being made is because it gives Disney a chance to rake in money without having to put in the effort of actually coming up with a creative story.
The saying: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” has encompassed how people have viewed success for years. But what if the man does not have the tools to cast a line? What if he does not have access to a body of water? And what if he is taxed every time he goes to use the lake? In order to preach about the path to success, we must first agree where we are starting.
Thanksgiving break has come and gone, and while the break was undoubtedly a relief to many students, residence hall closures added stress to the lives of others. All of the traditional and suite style halls closed over Thanksgiving break, with the exception of Maxcy. While people living off campus or commuting in are not generally affected by this problem, freshman students that have been required to live in residence halls were effectively evicted from their new home for the break.
Third-year English student Christina Roffe in "Students should have more extra credit opportunities" advances anxiety as her chief reason in support of more extra credit. In short, Ms. Roffe's piece cripples the importance of individual responsibility.
Whether I’m outside on a bench, in the Graduate Science Research Center or even in the veterans lounge, everywhere I eat I notice one major difference between me and everyone else. I’m eating out of plastic container I brought from home while others are eating out of Styrofoam or paper bags from somewhere on or near campus.
