Threshold of discomfort: handling sexual harassment on campus

Women's basketball midseason preview

With not a single win on the record, last year’s women’s basketball season was undoubtedly one of the worst in the history of SCC athletics. However, with their victories over Green River earlier this season, the Phins have dragged themselves up to sixth place out of eight in Washington’s north region of the Northwest Athletic Conference.
This is the midseason analysis. It covers what’s changed from last year: what the Phins are doing well and what they could be doing better.


The disconnect between students, syllabi and bookstores

Relentless reminders to be prepared ahead of time feel hollow when students are punished for doing so.
This is the experience I had recently when I tried to purchase my textbooks a week ahead of class. I assumed that with so much time before the start of the quarter, information on what textbooks I needed and whether or not they needed some form of online access, would be readily available. Oh, if only.

It was summer 2015—just a month after I graduated from high school— when I started collecting postcards. I still remember buying my first postcard when I went to Museum Kata Andrea Hirata, a literature museum in Belitung, Indonesia. The postcard cost $ 1.00, including postage.
I used to be an amateur philatelist – read: stamp collector – but I gave it up because good stamps are hard to find, and it was draining my wallet. After buying my first postcard, I told myself, “Hey, this would be a cool hobby; it costs less than stamp collecting.”
