The Toxic Cycle of Hustle Culture

By Amaya Lewis Web Content Contributor College – a time when young adults come to have fun while simultaneously bearing the weight of overwhelming pressures to perform. Whether from family members, friends, social media or personal expectations, most, if not all of us, have heard or felt the need to hustle until exhausted and accomplish what many take a lifetime to do by the time we’re 25. On social media, […]

Mastering the Art of the “Hot Girl Walk”

By Hannah Walls  Web Content Assistant I used to be a runner. I hated it. I’m not just talking about my brief stint as a 100-meter hurdles competitor in middle school; that lasted about one semester before I realized I and my tendency to trip over my own feet constantly were better off in the band hall than on the track. I’m talking about forcing myself out of the house […]

Five Tips for Thriving in Student Housing

By Celeste Parler Web Content Contributor Living in temporary student housing is a necessity for the majority of college students. Texas State requires most new freshmen to live on campus, given there are enough spaces to house them. Living on campus was overall a beneficial experience for me because I was able to be close to my classes and food options, but for many students, living in a residence hall […]

AI: Close to Human

By Sofia Psolka Web Content Contributor The year is 2038; the latest political, sociological turmoil: artificial intelligence has acquired sentience! Andromorphic androids walk the same street as you, work the same jobs as you and even feel the same emotions as you... but do you treat it as you would a biological, organic, human? What if a close friend of yours comes out as an android—would you view it as […]

Why Avatar: The Last Airbender is a Masterpiece

By Amaya Lewis Web Content Contributor In the wake of the announcement that there will be three Avatar movies released, it feels important to touch on the series that started it all. Given that it was released in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender’s ability to stand the test of time, remaining a beloved show to old and new viewers while generating a spin-off series with three movies on the way, […]

Eddie Munson Fandom Hate: Is Cyberbullying Ever Justified?

By Celeste Parler Web Content Contributor  Stranger Things season 4 volume 1 was released May 27, 2022, and has since made a significant cultural impact. I associate the initial debut of the series with the revival of Winona Ryder’s acting career and the emergence of a new science fiction saga. Each season introduces new side characters to interact with the central reoccurring characters and to add to their development as […]

Are We Turning the Page on Local Bookstores?

By Camryn Cole Web Content Contributor Books have been around forever. We use them for everything: learning, creating, and bettering ourselves. Novels are versatile, written by authors as different as Jane Austen and Stephen King. Books are classics, but they are also ever-changing. However, if books are so timeless, why have so many bookstores begun to go out of business? With the rapid rise of technology, I have noticed the […]
