Furthering the Abortion Conversation on Campus: What the Catholic Church Really Says

by Sarah Nahrgang and Dominic DeCinti As our trust in our traditions and institutions erode, we are slowly losing our identity. The West has, over time, lost faith in the Christian values that aided its unmatched success as a civilization.

We have lost sight of our priorities, and our belief in the sanctity of life…

Take your pick of popular op-eds on the new Dear Colleague letter published by the Department of Education. “the Trump administration made clear what many have expected all along: That it does not and will not stand with survivors of sexual violence on campus.” “Yikes.

The Absurdity of “Unfree Expression”

by Kevin Fenchak The Daily Collegian has really pushed the envelope on its generally mediocre, often sloppily edited, and consistently insipid opinion commentary. By publishing columnist Dominique Servati’s article, entitled “When does the first amendment go too far to protect hate speech?”, they have lowered the bar even further. Servati’s argument is not only legally wrong, it is philosophically vacuous and serves only to reinforce the prejudices of leftist students. The importance of an article such as this is…

Purging The Party

by Will Sanders During the Presidential campaign, the news was filled with prominent GOP backers and strategists such as George Will leaving the Republican Party. The media heralded this exodus as indicative of the collapse of the Republican Party brought on by Trump. Surprisingly, the media was correct – but too soon in their prediction.

A Message For New Students And Old

by Vincent Cucchiara The new semester is starting and we are all excited to meet new people, forge new friendships, and fill our heads with knowledge. College is a time to challenge yourself, to take risks in a safe environment, to test your mind with new ideas and to derive new meaning from what was incomprehensible. With that in mind I would like to extend a very liberal message to my fellow students, the kind of liberalism the left…

Comey’s (Not-so) Surprise?

by RDH James Comey’s first testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was supposed to offer a bombshell; instead, it highlighted two campaigns of misinformation. On Thursday morning, former FBI director, James Comey, gave his first testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee pertaining to the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and on the subject of his recent firing by President Trump. Comey’s testimony wasn’t particularly enlightening and did not highlight much that we didn’t know, but…

UPUA spends our tuition money on “free” coffee

by Vincent Cucchiara The University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) has voted to allocate $455 in funds to buy students coffee during finals week. While many are praising the decision, no doubt anticipating the need for coffee while studying for an exam, most are missing the fundamental economic mistake that has been made. Student government, like all government, gets their funding through a compulsory system. It is basically a tax in that you can not be a student without some of…

Keep Your Censorship Off of Campus

by Jack T. On Tuesday, two political organizations on campus, Turning Point USA (TPUSA) and Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), rolled around a giant beach ball called the “free speech ball.”  They encouraged anyone they met along the way to write anything they wanted to on the ball to affirm their first amendment right to freedom of speech. The free speech ball was partly in protest of Penn State’s Policy AD51 “Use of Outdoor Areas for Expressive Activities,” which outlines…
