Stigma around nontraditional career paths undeserved, students should focus on diversity, experience

Matthew Du | March 29, 2023

If there were three words we could use to describe the feeling of second semester, it would be over-kneaded bread dough.

While the month of February is particularly famous for Valentines Day, Groundhog Day is another holiday people celebrate. Groundhog Day has garnered its own popularity and has even inspired a movie. But while the 1993 movie “Groundhog Day” starring Bill Murray earned a 93% Rotten Tomatoes score, the movie is deeply problematic and romanticizes harassment.  You wouldn’t expect a movie titled...
