Pavelko: Old-school teaching methods are more engaging

Pavelko: Old-school teaching methods are more engaging

Hana Pavelko, Collegian Columnist April 23, 2024
As technology has developed, its integration into education has been inevitable. Whether it be the use of computers and iPads in class to take notes or even the digitalization of standardized testing, the use of technology in school has become almost essential to academic life.
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.
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.

Souza: Picky eaters should at least try new foods

Emma Souza, Collegian Columnist April 8, 2024
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.

Lopez: AI is more of a resource than something to be penalized for

Dominique Lopez, Opinion Editor April 3, 2024
As a journalism major at Colorado State University, the closing and renovations being done in Andrew G. Clark Building have really helped me to explore the campus a bit more; I mean, there is a need for me to walk farther than five steps to get from one classroom to another. Therefore, as I continue to walk around campus, I notice more posters for different people and programs.
Pavelko: Campus is better when its warm outside

Pavelko: Campus is better when it’s warm outside

Hana Pavelko, Collegian Columnist April 2, 2024
As February and March have come and gone and snow storms have started to fade to the back of our minds — until we get news of a freak snowstorm in May — students look forward to their favorite activities they have been unable to experience for months. People are wearing shorts and tank tops, students are lying on picnic blankets in The Oval to study or read, students are playing each other in Spikeball tournaments and volleyball games are happening by the Colorado State University Student Recreation Center.
Souza: National election stigmas challenge ASCSU elections

Souza: National election stigmas challenge ASCSU elections

Emma Souza, Collegian Columnist March 27, 2024
Voting works because people think it matters. To the diligent voter, having a voice in democracy is a privilege. They see voting as a form of self-expression, advocacy or even an innate citizen responsibility. They believe their vote has an effect, and for that reason, they recognize the importance of participating in and contributing to the election outcome.
