Column: Why is it so hard to get PrEP on campus?

"Let’s remember that there are low-income, Black and Latinx students on this campus. Let’s also remember that these students’ access to PrEP is being limited in a way that is antithetical to the groundbreaking strides that our University is making in HIV research."

Column: An ode to Lisa Drew

"Abstinence-only education doesn’t work. In fact, all of the evidence shows that abstinence-only education is ineffective at best, but also that it potentially contributes to higher teen pregnancy and birth rates."

I believe in the man Kobe tirelessly strove to be. And I grieve deeply for him, and the countless lives he touched.

Editorial: Party like it's '1984'

Editorial: Free swim lessons for all!

This initiative is a solid step from within our community to alleviate some of the problems we face. It’s not often that we get to read about something so promising. Here’s to hoping this program, and similar ones, can expand to more schools across the state.
