Emma Satin, Class of 2017

Yesterday, I openly and proudly, stated my political opinions on the woman I thought would next lead our country. I confidently, yet anxiously, awaited the declaration of Hillary Clinton as the next leader of the free world. Yesterday I saw the tides turn, and began to lose hope, state by state. Yesterday I watched as

Here are the facts: Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States of America, the country is more divided than ever and hate has consumed our people. Just like so many people, I never saw this coming. This election feels like a joke taken too far. I am disappointed in America:

This is an open letter that I wrote yesterday to America about my day and how it made feel: First I cried, I cried a lot. I cried for the little kids that couldn’t understand how a “bully” was elected our next president. Next, I cried for the kids that worried they would be forced

It saddens me that so many Americans did not actually like either candidate and thus only voted for who they view as “the lesser of

Trump’s victory is a disaster, and it’s easy to want to get as far away from it as possible. But instead of moving to Canada, we have to do everything we can to win the 2018 midterm elections. This is no longer optional–midterms make or break a president’s ability to actually get shit done (look

Hayley Rozencwaig, Class of 2017

My rights as a woman living in a liberal state may not be in jeopardy like those of others. However, I feel that because I am privileged enough to have the resources that I do, I have a responsibility to those who don’t to use my voice. I want to live in a world that
