Growing up as a pretty consistent gamer (though in recent years I haven’t had much time anymore), I’ve always enjoyed playing the strategy games.
Everybody with an ounce of technology within reach has played a video game at least once. It is a common pastime where games such as Call of Duty and the more recent Fortnite have captivated the nation’s reality-deprived youth.

Hi, my name is Katelynn Browne, I’m 20 years old and I’m addicted to TikTok. TikTok, if you don’t know (or if you’re not hip with the kids like I am) is an app where users post videos of themselves lip syncing various songs or audio clips.

Recently, we sat down with Dr. Karina Hogan to discuss why she and fellow faculty members see acceptance of trans students as fitting with Fordham’s Jesuit mission.
It’s the tail end of the 1980s in New Haven, Connecticut, and Daniel Morse’s 4th grade teacher gives his class an assignment: create a business. Make it as creative and colorful as you want. That’s how Dan came to craft Captain Dan’s, the finest restaurant and bar in the Connecticut public school system — a creation that also carried a certain precognition.
The decision to start taking antidepressants is not as easy to make as one might think. It personally took me over two years and two different psychiatrists to come to terms with the fact that I needed medication to get me through my bouts of depression and anxiety.
While it can’t be denied that plenty of Fordham students come from difficult backgrounds, the dominant atmosphere is still one of privilege. It’s easy to ignore how differently things could have turned out after high school. For me personally, it is surprising to see how many of my former classmates have ended up using hard drugs.
