Craze for Caffeine

Every college student knows the feeling of having one million things to do and never enough time to do all of them. Many turn to energy drinks, teas and coffees to give them an extra boost. However, many students likely do not know what they are consuming, or if it is even beneficial.

Letter to the Editor: IU Must End its Ban on Pepper Spray

Recently, an article was published in The Campus Citizen about the work student organizations and the IUPD are doing to improve campus safety. However, like the many students whom I have spoken with, you may be surprised to know that Indiana University has a policy banning pepper spray and similar weapons. The biggest problem with an existing policy that is not enforced is that the University has the freedom to enforce the policy unfairly and discriminatorily. More importantly, the existing policy being in the books allows the university to change their mind at any time and start punishing students for wanting to protect themselves.

An Inside Look at the 14th Annual IUPUI Regatta

September 24th was IUPUI’s 14th annual Regatta, a traditional canoe race on the Central Canal in downtown Indianapolis. Students watched their peers compete in the canoe race, visited student organization booths in Military Park, viewed a dog costume contest and watched live performances at the Regatta Music Festival. "It was kinda upsetting that we did well but weren't allowed to compete in the finals due to them... losing our [time]... This is our last Regatta and we felt a little cheated, but we appreciated getting to have the experience," said one student.

But for many students, the sustained isolation has affected them for the long haul, and it’s something that lifted restrictions and a vaccine can’t cure.

OPINION: Moonies Approached Me on Campus

A few weeks ago I was doing homework in the library. I am a commuter, so for me this was a little out of the ordinary. I had been sitting there for about an hour, and I was making good progress until I was approached by two members of the The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.
