Should Student-Athletes Be Compensated?

Taking A Bit Of Time To ‘Escape’

UNITED STATES—Everyday life can be stressful. Between work, family and home life, it’s enough to put someone into a tailspin.  We sometimes forget or don’t know how to take steps to ‘escape’ from the constant pressures of daily life.

Purchasing Justice Part I: The Everyday Person

UNITED STATES—The legal system in my opinion is a complicated government system to understand.  I recall my college years so vividly because I was so close to putting aside my personal goals to challenge myself to go into the legal arena.
