Students walking on campus

What’s new on the first day of class

It’s the first day of class–the beginning of the semester–and the start of new friendships.  Some students show off their new clothes that they bought over the summer.  Some have new hair styles, or new “do’s” that they want to show off.

A Tiger Who Roars

  Morgan Sinclaire Screws, (2017-2018) 1st Attendant to Miss Tuskegee University, continues to define that one doesn’t always have to win the title, to make a difference. Over the past few weeks, we saw three different events Screws hosted for not only the campus, but also the Tuskegee community. The first event was movie night on Logan Hall Lawn entitled, “A ROARING Night at the Movies”, paid homage to old Tuskegee. Students were invited to watch Sleepless starring Jamie Foxx and T.I.  Screws along with other Royal court members served free concessions for students to snack on during the showing. […]

Yara Shadidi and Malia Obama: Selling out, or Doing Their Due Diligence

    Image via: Tumblr In a time within the realm of pop culture, where it seems as though the prime focus  is either who’s dating who’ and who is at odd with each other, a breath of exciting fresh air came along, especially within the African American community, when Yara Shididi of ABC’s Blackish, and the former First Daughter, Malia Obama, announced their decisions’ to attend Harvard University, most, if not all supporters assumed that due to the fact that Yara Shididi is an actress on such an apologetically empowering show to Black families, and that Malia Obama being the […]

The Traveler’s Among Us

Keeping it Clean and Sane

College is great time for students, but sometimes amid classes, homework, extracurricular activities and maintaining a social life; students sometimes forget to maintain their mental and sexual health.

Here are some tips on staying STD-free and mentally healthy in college.   When having conversations about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), many students are not aware of the dangers of STDs.
