Manhood in the 21st Century

By Brandi Mitchell Web Content Contributor    Manhood is a concept that is perhaps less discussed and analyzed than womanhood but comes with no less ambiguity, struggle and uncertainty.  As social creatures with an inclination to community and at times, conformity, there is no overarching construct prevalent in a society that does not in a continuous stream touch the lives of each and every person.  Gender is like the fading sensitivity […]

Tackling the GRE

By Brandi MitchellWeb Content Contributor In only 19 days I will be taking the dreaded GRE. Countless hours of studying, practice tests and occasional weeping has led me to the final stage: acceptance. This is not the standardized test to end all tests, nor is it the defining moment of my short 20 years of life.
