Review: Maximum pleasure at Max's

It takes self-confidence and more than little bit of nerve to open a new business during a pandemic. Maxwell Winger seems to have plenty of both. Winger, an Orlando native, is a 22-year-old with a degree in economics from FSU who had the brilliant idea of turning his passion into [...]

It's Apple's world. We're just living in it

If you ever visit a college campus you will notice the plethora of Apple products from laptops, iPads, iPhones and more.

Let's deepen the mental health conversation in the Black community

The discussion of mental health in the Black community has been a taboo topic until recent years. To deepen the conversation of mental health in the Black community, Black people need to be educated on the ways and services that can be provided once they identify that there's a problem [...]

COVID already taking a toll on students in 2021

COVID-19 is already affecting students at Florida A&M in 2021 -- before 2020 has even ended. The university announced recently that spring break has been canceled. I had a feeling this was going to happen, especially after FSU canceled its spring break; but I was really hoping otherwise. FAMU issued [...]

What to expect at voting polls amid the threat of violence
