The Atlantic Responds to Right-Wing Populism on Campus

by Kevin Fenchak In Elaine Godfrey’s piece on the civil war taking place in College Republicans chapters across the country, the left-leaning Atlantic spends surprisingly little time disparaging Trump’s populist base, astounding for a magazine known as a magnet for GOP establishment whiners and former NYT writers.

Collegian Columnist Undergoes Moral Crisis Over Clump of Cells

by Vincent CUCKiara An article was recently published in the Collegian entitled “We all need to respect our right to choose,” in which the author seems to be confused about the moral question of medical procedures.

A Message to Female Students

by Sarah Nahrgang As our Christmas break comes to a close and the next semester quickly approaches, I’d like to take the time to say some much-needed words to my fellow women at Penn State, which are, to say the least, a bit controversial, though nonetheless necessary.
