When you hear the word parking, there could be reason to get a little uneasy. We’ve all had some bad experiences in parking lots, like when the lady sees you with your turn signal on, stares you right in the face and jets to your spot as if she didn’t know that’s what you were patiently waitin...

That test isn’t going to study for itself, I like to say. I am a queen at procrastinating, especially when it’s so easy to binge- watch another season of “Glee” instead of studying for my math test. It’s easy to beat procrastination when you have various study systems under your belt. I...

To cable or not to cable – that is the question. I’ll be honest in my opinion; the cable companies are simply a rip-off. They offer these “fantastic” bundle packages that include all the “best” channels with the greatest movies. Okay, I’ll lay off the sarcasm. I’m simply expressing it the ...

I am a MATC student and the president of A.L.S.O. that receives accommodation services at MATC. I have spoken to several students with different disabilities about the doors in testing, financial aid, and counseling.  WE cannot maneuver these doors independently; WE rely on the kindness of others to ...

That darn data breach

October 17, 2017


Filed under Opinions

The astounding tragedy that occurred with the Equifax data breach proves that no matter what “secure” firewalls are implemented to protect us as consumers, no system is foolproof. The irony is that we did not choose this company for any advocacy or representation, nor did we ask for them to be in...

The scenarios of a how we ended up as community college students may vary, but the fact is, we all predominately have the same goal in mind; graduate with high honors and be recognized for our academic achievements as we pursue our passions. Praying that after two, three, maybe even four years of the m...

Communication – it is the very bedrock of human nature, culture and society as a whole. For one to expand this bedrock would be easily considered a great benefit to society. Such was the case when the first telephone was made in 1876. Decades of communication gave us quicker ways to check on lov...

College in general can be an intimidating and isolating place for new students, but I’ve found that to be particularly true at MATC.  Especially if you’re coming right out of high school.  As an 18-year-old you think of college as a place where you are surrounded by people the same age as you all ...

Much of the academic world is buzzing about the proposed spending cuts to education released in President Trump’s budget proposal. However, the MATC board of directors had nothing to say about it during their meeting on March 29.  During the legislative matters report given by board member Mary Isbister, the ...

According to Statistic Brain, 21.4% of people (myself included) made an oath at the beginning of this fresh, shiny New Year to better their health. I made goals to get back down to my pre-insulin weight (note to self: yeah, right, good luck with that), and to get fit. Actually, what I said to myself was: “...
