She stated that international students do have options after graduating from…

By Olivia Callahan Monday, Oct. 16 began the inaugural Green Dot Week on the Saint Leo University campus. The theme of the week was “Domestic Violence Awareness” and, appropriately, the first event of the week was the Mini Clothesline Project. This event was shaped after a popular project that has recurred in many different locations and on many different college campuses since it’s beginning.

By Dr. Nicole McCoy Nicole McCoy is an adjunct faculty member at the Key West Center, who decided to share her personal story involving Hurricane Irma. I live on Cudjoe Key, which is where the forward eyewall of hurricane Irma struck on 9/10. I first became aware of Irma’s potential (and her potential track) on 8/31, which is quite a few days before most people, because I follow the amateur meteorologist blogs during hurricane season. You would think that a long lead time would be good, but in many ways it was a slow-moving torture. I think I wasted hours analyzing data…

Following the hit of Hurricane Harvey, there were many parts of southeast Texas…
