Food pantries have been springing up on college campuses across the nation. The New York Times ran a piece in June noting the more than 300 colleges that are addressing what the Agriculture Department calls “food insecurity” on campuses. The article explains that as tuition prices are increasing and more low-income students are attending college, making ends meet is harder than ever. Previous research has shown that lack of food affects cognition, energy levels and ability to focus — all of which contribute to academic success. These food pantries, as well as other meal options, offer a reprieve for students. Continue reading

With the debate tonight at 9 p.m., airing on the major networks, let me opine a bit about the polling that will happen after.
Though I feel like whenever I write something like this I have to add a disclaimer – I am not a Trump voter. In fact, as a journalist, I have made it a point to be politically independent my whole adult life. I see the pluses and minuses in all candidates, and even managed a small minor party for awhile a decade ago to prove my equal concern for both sides of the aisle. Continue reading
