  • Don’t be afraid to let go of what hurts you

    I’ve always hated change. I adapt to things very slowly and when I do, I want to stay in that place for as long as possible because it’s what is familiar. Plain and simple, people naturally love...

  • Just because it’s not “hard news,” doesn’t mean it’s “not news”

    So maybe you don’t care about Kim Kardashian and how her dress was see-through or not see-through, or maybe you don’t care how her dress looked at all. Just because you don’t care, doesn’t mean it isn’t...

  • Lessons from the summer job search

    Summer 2015 was excruciating. I spent more than 30 hours a week mowing lawns and made more wraps at New Britain Stadium than Gucci Mane did in prison. One year and two semesters later, summer 2016 arrived...

  • It’s time to care

    Recently I have gotten more interested in learning about food. I’ve been a vegetarian for most of my life and was usually the kid eating plain pasta or mac and cheese at parties and barbeques. Since then...

  • Op-Ed: Inequality for women’s sports must be addressed

    Inequality is not something to shrug away. It is not something to simply claim as “the way things are.” And most importantly, nobody should be abused or defied for speaking up about inequality. For the players on...

  • It’s so hard to say goodbye

    I wasn’t involved in The Chronicle for too long. I was an English major during my freshman year and I had no idea what my future plans were. I thought I was going to (maybe) become a...

  • Take your time

    Nothing is set in stone when you come to college. High schools try to implant the thought into students’ minds that they should know what they want to do with the rest of their life by the...

  • Don’t be afraid to get involved

    The Chronicle was the first organization I joined at Quinnipiac. I was your typical freshman who was not quite sure how to get involved and a little bit scared to join anything. Having been on the newspaper...

  • How The Chronicle became my family

    Joining The Chronicle was the best decision I made during my time at Quinnipiac. I’ve said this for the past three years and I still stand by it. I was barely involved my freshman year and had...

  • Do something that you love

    Somewhere along the way I blinked, and when I woke up I was writing this piece. The vivid depictions of certain events at Quinnipiac will never leave my head. Whether it was the day I moved into...

  • You can do anything

    Throughout my past four years on The Chronicle, I have occasionally thought about what I would say in my senior sendoff. As I try to form the words for the last piece I will ever write for...

  • Take advantage of your time

    As a design major, I had no idea what student organization would give me real design experience. Walking up and down aisles of the Involvement Fair, I spotted The Chronicle and remembered someone telling me that newspapers...

  • For sanity’s sake, pick up your trash

    I love the outdoors. Sleeping Giant State Park and the surrounding woods are a huge part of why I came to Quinnipiac University in the first place. I love fishing, hiking and just taking in the natural...

  • I don’t have time for this

    I didn’t realize how annoying and tedious booking rooms for an organization could be until I became a student media leader. Of course I didn’t believe “The Chronicle” would magically show up on the doors of the...
