Weekly Gripe: CSU-Pueblo not that bad

  For most people applying for college, CSU-Pueblo is not the first option on their list of choices. In fact, this university is usually a last resort or not even on their list as possible choices. I think the reason for this is the bad reputation Pueblo has for being a town without much to offer. Most people, even Colorado residents, do not even know Pueblo exists. And for those who do know where to find this little city on a map, few have anything nice to say about it....

Weekly gripe- unprofessional musicians

For most people the thought of meeting a famous musician or musical group is thrilling and exciting, and for most, the experience turns out to be just so. However, sometimes a person's perception of how these famous people should be and how they should act gets jolted into reality quickly. These musicians that we look up to and admire for their music and their success suddenly slap us in the face with the harsh reality that even though we hold them to higher standards than the average person, sometimes they...

Editorial: Fair Game in ASG Elections

With the final day of the election for the new members of the Associated Students' Government at hand, there are two questions that should come to the minds of every student on campus who is taking an active interest in the election. Which ticket is the most qualified to serve our student body, and who truly has the best interests of the student body in mind? These are important questions because of the experience some candidates have with ASG, as well as a lack of experience for one ticket. Does...

Weekly Gripe: Too much homework

Does it ever feel like your professors got together and decided to make every test on the same day and every paper due the same week? Sometimes, I definitely feel like that. I understand we are students at the collegiate level, and I understand that we alone are responsible for our schedules, but every semester, without fail, it seems like the load is always thrown at the same time. Every year and every semester I have had a week or two where it is a breeze. No homework, no papers...

Weekly Gripe: Own up to your actions

People need to take personal responsibility.  When did society decide that people no longer need to take personal responsibility? There have been a couple events within the last few weeks that have really made me reflect on the fact that personal responsibility is a has-been these days. The first situation occurred while sitting in my living room watching a special report about prisons on MSNBC. On the program an inmate was interviewed from a high-security prison in Kentucky. Throughout the interview the inmate discussed his violent day-to-day episodes within the...

Weekly Gripe – Gas price hike

Gas prices are soaring once again. This week's gas prices are averaged at $3.05 per gallon for the state of Colorado, according to GasBuddy.com. In comparison to last week, prices have risen nearly four cents, and compared to last month prices are up 17 cents or more in some areas. This inevitable raise in gas prices is unfair. It's unfair because there is not one thing that anybody can do about it if they want to drive an automobile. Drivers nation-wide are forced to pay high gas prices if they...

Weekly gripe – NIU shooting

After a gunman opened fire on campus at Northern Illinois University, many members of the campus and surrounding community were left baffled and shocked. The shooter killed six people, including himself. No solid motives have been determined, and the community of NIU, in general, is in utter confusion over why their campus had to endure such tragedy. My question is why. I don't understand why people feel the need to harm others if they are just going to end their life anyway. Why is the need to bring others misery...
