In the spring of 2017, undergraduate resident assistants employed by George Washington University were extended the right to organize into a labor union by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Although the campaign was eventually called off  by the Service Employees International Union without the knowledge of the student organizers, the NLRB decision offers an…

This summer has been quite a difficult one for Catholics in America. From the exposure of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s heinous actions to the Pennsylvania grand jury report that uncovered approximately 300 Catholic priests had sexually abused over 1,000 minors, to former Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Carlo Vigano’s letter that alleges Pope Francis helped cover up McCarrick’s…

I hear the phrase “I’m broke” a lot at Georgetown. But it’s not “I’m broke and don’t have money to pay my bills.” “I’m broke” is usually used to express the inability to spend more money on a parent’s credit card because it will result in a lecture on responsible spending. I hear the phrase…

I’m sorry. I really am. I’m sorry that I’m not going to ask for a promotion. I’m sorry that I use exclamation points! I’m sorry I apologize so much. I really am. Because realistically, I’ll probably achieve more “success” if I act differently— more egocentric, more harsh, more direct. More masculine. In this world that…

My time on the Hilltop is winding down. People have been telling me for years this moment would come, but when you’re a freshman or sophomore, it’s easy to dismiss this message.

“Believe me, sweetie, I got enough to feed the needy / No need to be greedy, I got mad friends with Benz’s” The lyrical musings of The Notorious B.I.G blasted on the speakers as everyone rapped and danced along, no one missing a single word. I enthusiastically watched one of my closest friends, along with…
