  What could be better for a college student than a cheap, filling, delicious, and convenient meal? Nothing. That's why I think the Original Pancake House is the right for college students. As an avid customer, I absolutely love this place. It's close to campus and the food is filling and...

Paladar can be summed up in 7 words: a party any time of the day! The warm welcoming of the smiles on the employees and the speed at which they sat me down foreshadowed an awesome dining experience. This restaurant is relatively new and has been open for only two years. This is an east coast food...

Oreo, possibly the most blatant term utilized to describe an African-American who does not fit the stereotype or more importantly, an African-American who behaves "white." Sure, when said jokingly, I can jump up and down and giggle in amusement, but it has to stop. Although I am an American, I tend...

Abortion isn’t a topic most people are very fluid on, but a number of pro-life activists are hoping to change minds at Montgomery College. They've probably been seen before: the large banners picturing developing children or aborted fetuses. I took the time to sit down with them and try to see their...
