In recent weeks, a few of my friends have made the decision to delete their social media accounts, leading me to question the reasoning behind this.
No president Trump, the media did not lie about the sheer volume of people who attended the women’s march in Washington.
It is no secret that the U.S. is divided. For the past few months, our country has slowly built up to the hatred and fear that surrounds many of us today. When it was decided that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton would be the major party nominees in the election, fear, happiness, hatred and hope […]
The 2016 presidential election is officially over, and the event that has been at the forefront of our attention on campus and in the media can finally shift from this to other important events locally, nationally and internationally.
Last week, the Old Gold & Black published an opinion piece regarding abortion. While some of the student body agree with the views reflected in this piece, many do not.
When I came to Wake Forest, I came in with this idea that I would be able to succeed academically without any help. I did not expect to visit the Learning Assistance Center (LAC) or getting a tutor.
Being a student at Wake Forest has many perks but also disadvantages. Students are so busy and caught up in their work that we are stuck in the “Wake Forest Bubble.”
Colin Kaepernick has been making headlines recently not because of his talent on the field, but because of his refusal to stand during the national anthem prior to NFL games in protest of the wrongful treatment of African Americans and minorities in the U.S.
The 2016 Presidential election has been a main topic of discussion for the past year.
A Wake Forest workload is no joke and we know it. Luckily, students have access to amazing resources: the ZSR library, research facilities, Office of Career and Personal Development and more. The best resource, however, are your professors.
Coming to college is a huge change from high school – more work, more freedom and more responsibility. The stereotype of “Work Forest” often increases the anxiety of new students, but do not let it intimidate you.
For any reporter or writer of a newsworthy publication, journalistic integrity should be the most important thing to consider when writing a piece.
One thing that has struck me since high school is that students, myself included, tend to care about “who has the most to do” or “who has the worst week ahead.”
When I told people I was going to college in North Carolina, one of the most common responses (aside from the obligatory congratulations) was “how are you going to handle the different culture, considering North Carolina is in the South?”
Earlier this week, California raised the minimum wage from $10 to $15 after three years of the “Fight for 15” campaign.
This past Sunday, everyone went crazy when Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar for Best Actor after six nominations.
In the past few weeks a backlash has been seen, namely against two women — Gloria Steinem and Madeline Albright — for both essentially saying that women should vote for Hillary Clinton because she is a woman.

We are told that in order to succeed, we need to fail. We are told that success comes from learning from our mistakes and that we grow as students and as people as a result.
When we first come to college, we have a blank slate. We have nothing tying us down to who we were in high school and no obligations (other than to attend class). We can be whoever we want to be and do almost whatever we want to do. We have a copious amount of free […]
When I am scrolling through my Instagram and Twitter feeds, I’ve recently noticed that I follow a lot of people I do not know — sometimes on purpose.
We live in a time where stereotypes are at the forefront of our lives. We categorize everyone, not always knowingly, and we make assumptions about them.
I recently watched Miss Representation, a documentary about how women are portrayed in the media and how the media has skewed the way women and men perceive women. The film focused on the media’s representation of women professionally and socially. Take a look at many of the female news anchors. Most of them are dressed in […]
We are always looking towards the future: looking for the perfect high school, college, job, spouse, apartment and so on. We always say that we work now to be happy later. But when do we actually live? When do we actually live in the moment without worrying about the future? I’ve been saying that I […]
We live in a time where our focus is dominated by social media. We constantly check Twitter, Instagram, Yik Yak, Snapchat and more to stay up to date on the latest happenings. Walking around campus, I frequently see students walking with their heads locked on their phones, not noticing where they are going. There are […]
