On Feb. 5, the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump. By the end of this six-month process, I found myself thinking back to early September, when I Googled seemingly simple questions because I was too afraid to ask them out loud—“What is a whistleblower?” and “Does impeaching a president automatically mean he’ll be removed from office?”…

Keeping your high school relationship when you go to college is like shuffling a deck of cards. I’ve heard that because there are 52 unique elements to a deck, each time you shuffle you’re creating an order the universe has never seen before. But the deck remains the same, with the same makeup, used for…

We, as students, negotiate with the University administration every day, and time and time again we have learned a simple lesson: money talks.

“A suicide note is hard to write,” they say, almost matter-of-factly. After two months, I have learned not to panic, yet my head pounds as if hearing it for the first time. To be a source of hope, you really have to believe. When someone teeters at the ledge, with the universe’s energy pulling them…

In 2009, Voice staffer Will Sommer wrote a piece sharing his and other political writers’ predictions on the next year in D.C. city politics.

The clock struck midnight on January 1, 2020. A brand new decade, a brand new act.  Maybe I watch too many movies, but with a new decade on the horizon I’ve been looking back on my life as different acts, and reflecting on each one has given me a new understanding of myself in the…

“Kick over the wall ’cause government’s to fall. How can you refuse it? Let fury have the hour, anger can be power. Do you know that you can use it?”  Would you believe me if I told you one of the biggest bands in the world purposefully trashed venues on tour and snuck fans in…
