Dear Editor, I have been at UW Oshkosh for six semesters and have not had an African-American professor. I am a black student with an African-American studies minor but have been limited in the opportunity to speak to African-American academic personnel about common ideologies. Don’t get me...

Dear Editor, Robots are great, aren’t they? They clean your floors, make your coffee and take your jobs … wait, what? Yes, you heard me right, they take our jobs. However, you shouldn’t blame them for taking our jobs because aren’t they just shifting the jobs? Think about it. Sure, robots...

In my experience, the things given freely to me are generally taken for granted; however, the things that I have worked for...
