Choosing a Career Path

in Opinion by

Choosing a career is not always easy. It is not easy to just flip a switch and magically know what you want to spend the rest of your life doing. It is rather a challenging task. It takes time, effort and deep research. I have a friend who started with computer science, changed to politics, then to business, then to marketing, then switched to communications and ended up in advertising. It took her a lot of time to realize what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. It took trying out a lot of majors. A lot. As a freshman, you are probably not looking for a major right away, you are most likely looking for how to make friends, where the parties are at (for most freshman students, not all), the fun things to do and so on. But a major? not yet. Freshman students would…

Education as a tool to empower people

in News by

Have you ever thought of why you are in college? Why you have to write that 50-page paper with the deadline in two weeks? Or that 200-page paper in one week? Why you have to suffer sleepless nights to study for an exam? Why you have to work so hard in school and maintain three jobs at the same time without feeling the need to break down or why you have to stay in that class of physics when you are an accounting major? It can be confusing. The thought of having three jobs, an internship, lead an organization and also maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have a friend who is an accounting major and she has to take chemistry, physics, literature, french, and many more subjects that have nothing to do with accounting. She felt like she just needed accounting classes and that was all. I agree that it…

Graduation: The dream of every college student

in Opinion by

When I came to St. Cloud State University, all I could think of was what my grades would be the first semester and I was scared. I thought of what to do to make sure that I met American standards of intelligence. I really was not sure I was good enough for St Cloud State University. I was worried because my classes were not easy and I was sure that I would not do well in school. I always was in distress and was sad just thinking of what would happen if I could not maintain the standard grade point average that the school had and what would happen to me if I could not stay in school. I think most students agree that grades are the way we know if we are successful or not. People have a way of asking if we are doing well in school by…

A writer worth noting

in Opinion by

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian writer who writes on feminism and on Nigerian History. She hails from Enugu in Nigeria. She is a powerful leader in feminist culture, shining a light on marginalized people. Adichie has studied medicine and pharmacology at the University of Nigeria for a year and a half. At the age of 19, she left Nigeria for the United States to study communications and political science at Drexel University in Philadelphia; she transferred to Eastern Connecticut State where she graduated summa cum laude in 2001. In 2003, she completed a master’s degree in creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. In 2008, she received a Master of Arts degree in African studies from Yale University.   I see Adichie as a role model and a woman of strength. I look up to her for a number reasons-the first being that she is from Africa. People do not see African writers often American culture, so I view her as a gem.…
