Campus beautification not the most pressing matter

Jeremy Kline April 15, 2014
Old, grey buildings blot the landscape, water marks running down their sides like weeping giants. The barren trees jut up like spires, piercing the grey sky above, while a soft drizzle slowly patters off of the concrete pathways between buildings. If you thought I was describing a bombed out city in a barren wasteland, you would be wrong. I was actually describing my walk from the Humanities building to the Union last Tuesday. Many students across campus have grumbled about the ugliness of the buildings on campus, and the problem does not look like it is going to be solved any time soon.

Jeremy Kline November 12, 2013
Last Wednesday, I attended the “Blood Donor Policy Panel” in the Charles B. Wang Center Theater presented by Stony Brook University’s Blood Donor Equality Movement. To be honest, my original purpose for going to the panel was to satisfy the “Hot Topic” event requirement for my undergraduate college. As soon as the panelists were introduced, my attention was fully devoted to the discussion on stage.

Cutting Walmart is not a feasible solution for clubs on campus

Jeremy Kline November 5, 2013
Walking around campus these past few weeks, you may have noticed a certain flyer hanging up on the advertisement boards with a smiley face on it. A group of students, with the help of others from outside organizations, are looking to cut Walmart out of the list of approved vendors from which clubs and organizations can purchase goods and supplies.

Government shutdown nothing more than “playground politics”

Jeremy Kline October 15, 2013
So, imagine this: two groups of people are arguing about something. Neither side is willing to concede anything to the other side, let alone try to reach a compromise. They won’t even meet with the other group of people because they are so entrenched in their own opinions. Does this sound like what you might find on an elementary school playground? Yes, it does. It’s also what is currently happening in the government of one of the most powerful nations on the face of this Earth.
