COLUMN: Plus should be subtracted from plus size

When you walk into most stores, you see your main sections: Men's, Women's and Plus Size. There you have it folks — sizes 10 and higher put in their own little section, all the way across the store, suggesting that the people who wear those clothes are different and should be separated from everyone else.  Everyone is made differently, and because of this, I am a fan of making separate clothing for those who are above a size 10.

COLUMN: Auburn, don't stone me for this

An unpopular opinion in the college setting is one that does not favor the recreational use of marijuana. Being one that stands to defend said opinion, I’ve noticed much of the population who partake in illegally smoking marijuana are those who do not have the ambition or knowledge to truly defend their stance.

Editorial: SGA election bylaws need revision

On December 1 every year, SGA candidates participate in Candidate Orientation and take the Election Law Test, thus beginning the short but significant process of becoming a part of Auburn's student government.  After over a month of idleness, campaign preparation begins January 14 and formal campaigning begins February 3. Six days later, voting begins and the creation week of student government winds down to a close, assuming all elections end with winners with majorities.  We implore the SGA to revise the current model of elections in order to increase student voter turnout and to give students a better chance to scope out the candidates' platforms.  But credit must be given where credit is due.

It is time to change the meal plan

Each semester, Auburn students who live on campus are forced to pay $995 for a meal plan and off campus students pay $300 for theirs. Students are being synthetically induced to increase demand for university sanctioned fast food restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A, Papa Johns and Panda Express.
