I truly enjoy being a student at UAB, but what really gets on my nerves is that there are not many food options on the east side of campus.

Climate change is real. Man-made emissions contributing to climate change is a scientifically proven fact. It’s hard to believe you can have an opinion on something being true or not, but I guess it takes a special kind of ignorance to deny climate change.

Did you know UAB Student Health and Wellness Center also offers counseling services? Talking about problems can be one of the most effective ways to get over an issue. Unfortunately most people don’t want to talk about what is troubling them. There are hundreds of people on this campus that have been bullied or molested and have never spoken about it to anyone.

Adderall: it’s God’s greatest creation, isn’t it? Got a paper due tomorrow that you haven’t started? Pop an addie, no worries. Got a long drive back to your parents’ place four hours away and it’s already 8 p.m.? Don’t stress, just pop another one. Got any problem ever? Just keep poppin’, Jimbo.

If you have lived or traveled throughout the Birmingham metro area, you’ve probably noticed how different life can be on either side of Red Mountain.

I get it. Sex education is un-sexy. Still, I asked multiple students, many of whom were my good friends, about their thoughts on sexually transmitted disease  testing. They all agreed: it is necessary. We have a social responsibility as sexually active members of the community to be screened and to decrease the spread of diseases. If so many people are ready to accept this, why is it that very few actually go through with it?
