Proulx: Im tired of having to vet TikTok influencers

Proulx: I’m tired of having to vet TikTok influencers

Caden Proulx, Print Director April 22, 2024
I watch a lot of TikTok livestreams. Whether it's to focus on something mindless for a second or because the game they're playing is just visually stimulating, I love a good rot in bed. With the accessibility and popularity of TikTok, almost anyone can become an influencer and establish a fanbase. This seems great in theory, but it also welcomes a lot of ignorant views to circulate in a way that isn't possible with mainstream celebrities.
Souza: Dont wish your life away with existentialism

Souza: Don’t wish your life away with existentialism

Emma Souza, Collegian Columnist April 22, 2024
What is more human than fearing something inevitable? That’s the question I’ve been asking myself whenever I panic over getting older. Why am I scared to die if it happens to everyone? I’m nowhere near close to the end of my life — I’m not even halfway — but it's something that I think about all the time.
Attendees at the Riley Gaines talk, hosted by Colorado State Universitys student chapter of Turning Point USA and The Riley Gaines Center at the Leadership Institute, hold up posters and signs for a photo April 3. Defend your daughters; defend your kids, Gaines said.

Askren: Riley Gaines’ presence at CSU violates Principles of Community

Emma Askren, Sports Editor April 17, 2024
Hate has no place in sports, no matter how divisive they may seem. As a university that literally has inclusion, respect and social justice listed in its Principles of Community, Colorado State University has failed its student population by allowing Riley Gaines to speak with hate and disrespect to those who would listen.

Seriously: CSU to offer new class Swearing Across Languages

Hana Pavelko, Collegian Columnist April 16, 2024
Looking to fulfill those pesky All-University Core Curriculum credit requirements? Well, there are now more options for students who are still in need of arts and humanities credits. Colorado State University students registering for the fall 2024 semester are now able to sign up for the newest foreign language class BS 420: Swearing Across Languages.
LTTE: Bill HB24-1322 opens door for more Colorado Medicaid members

LTTE: Bill HB24-1322 opens door for more Colorado Medicaid members

Guest Author April 15, 2024
A significant number of local individuals and families need your support to get behind HB24-1322, a bill that will allow Medicaid to cover housing and nutrition services. Far too many Coloradans are on the verge of homelessness or cannot get the food they need to stay healthy.
Seriously: Clark renovation plans change to McDonalds PlayPlace

Seriously: Clark renovation plans change to McDonald’s PlayPlace

Emma Souza, Collegian Columnist April 15, 2024
If you see kids around campus asking for a Happy Meal, they’re not asking about weed brownies. They just want McDonald's. The obnoxious construction going on around the Andrew G. Clark Building is driving students mad. With their daily walks to class rerouted, many have reported closing their eyes at night and hearing jackhammers. But what they don't know is that this renovation actually isn’t a renovation at all. In reality, Colorado State University is building something more ugly, congested and greasy than Clark itself.
Seriously: Latest dine-and-dash regimen just dropped

Seriously: Latest dine-and-dash regimen just dropped

Addy Dollaghan, Collegian Columnist April 11, 2024
On Wednesday night in Fort Collins, a restaurant packed to the gills with patrons suffered a massive financial loss when a group of 10 individuals flawlessly executed the age-old dine and dash. Throughout the evening, members of the group would “use the restroom” and then sneak out the front door of the Houver Priced Cuisine establishment. They timed their exits tactfully and spaced them out to not draw suspicion. The first nine had no issues, but pressure rested on the strong shoulders of the last member. If he failed to escape, the plan would collapse, and the group would be forced to pay.
Rhoads: Working in a restaurant is more than a job; its a community

Rhoads: Working in a restaurant is more than a job; it’s a community

Darien Rhoads, Collegian Columnist April 11, 2024
From the outside, a restaurant seems like a lawless place. There’s a 13-year-old kid bussing tables, ex-convicts working in the kitchen and a server crying in the walk-in refrigerator. But this chaos, combined with the constant love-hate dichotomy of serving the general public, provides the strongest sense of community I’ve ever worked in.

Pavelko: Asian fusion restaurants harm traditional Asian cuisine

Pavelko: Asian fusion restaurants harm traditional Asian cuisine

Hana Pavelko, Collegian Columnist April 9, 2024
Asian food has been a popular cuisine in the United States since the mid-1800s. Chinese immigrants who settled in California first brought their traditional food with them, and now the cuisine has spread to be what some consider the highest ranked ethnic food in the world. Since then, more Asian cuisines have taken the United States by storm, such as Japanese hibachi and Korean barbecue.

As a waitress who works at a delicious restaurant, anytime a regular — an adult, mind you — consistently orders the kid’s chicken tenders, my tip goes out the window.
Proulx: Bidens temporary port in Gaza is nowhere near enough

Proulx: Biden’s temporary port in Gaza is nowhere near enough

Caden Proulx, Print Director April 4, 2024
Prominent news outlets such as The New York Times and CBS have hailed President Joe Biden's State of the Union address as "raucous" and "defiant." Particularly, the media have been highlighting a specific announcement from the Biden administration to build a temporary emergency port off the Gaza coast to deliver humanitarian aid.
