    Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions we make as young adults. A good way to try out careers is to volunteer.

  3. Stereotyping: Subtle or blatant, be aware of their differences


    Listen to almost any news report lately and the issue of racial profiling is likely to come up, one recent story being the shooting death of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., by a white police officer.

    Subtle stereotyping based on cues such as a person’s skin color or hair is automatic.
  4. Review: Surprise! Arby's Meat Mountain a hearty tower of goodness (w/video)


    I took a small hike the other day. A lover of mountains, I was eager to try a new adventure. This mountain, though, was unlike any I had climbed before.

  9. KATIE GAVLICK: A sense of escape


    "Freshman year I tore my ACL and meniscus in my right knee at a soccer tournament. Sophomore year I tore my right meniscus again during a soccer practice. Neither surgery could keep me away from the game. Then during my junior year I tore my ACL and meniscus in my left knee. That's when my doctors and parents told me I …

  10. MAYA GOWDA: Unconventional obsession


    "You can obsess over sports and celebrities, and there's nothing wrong with that. But, when you're obsessed with reading... it's pretty unconventional."
