Kierra Gordon Thanksgiving in The Bahamas was enormously eventful. Each day of the week was spent doing something different. Although this was mainly a Thanksgiving visit, it would have been incomplete without a quick trip to the beach. As I sat in the calm, crystal clear water, the hot sun was piercing against my skin. Since I was surrounded by palm trees, the wind blowing cooled me down. It was the most peaceful thing I had experienced in a long time. The popular Bahamian dishes of peas and rice, potato salad, baked macaroni and cheese mixed with the worldly popular,…

On Nov. 21, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai revealed plans to repeal net neutrality in the United States, causing much outrage and political backlash. The FCC is expected to vote on the repeal Dec. 14, with an anticipated 3-2 vote in favor of the repeal.

Saint Leo University’s scheduled Fall final exam week is from Tuesday, Dec. 5, until Friday, Dec. 9, which leaves ample time of over three weekdays for students to get prepared mentally and physically for a ‘stress-free finals week.’ Although this is the case, it still comes as no surprise that with finals week approaching, some students will eventually push their bodies to unhealthy limits in attempts to study for prolonged periods of time before taking exams; this can hinder their success rates. It seems that to carry out such behavior, more and more students have turned their willingness to resort…
