From TAMIU With Love

TAMIU’s Advising & Mentoring Center (AMC) is a precious gem among the university’s vast resources.  It’s an office that has imprinted memories to just about every TAMIU student, including myself.  The hard-working student mentors work rigorously, helping freshman and sophomore students acclimate to TAMIU systems, student routines, and campus resources.  Though freshman students may enter school with confidence, it is the mentors and their office that opens the door for them.

Prime Minister Clinton?

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton rode her post-convention bump with glee.  The polls have her with a comfortable lead against Republican challenger Donald Trump.  However, both candidates have a poor favorability rating.  In terms of public approval ratings, President Barack Obama leads them significantly, but the president communicated a message that could explain this year’s election: Do not vote for the candidate.  Vote for the party. “We all need to get out and vote for Democrats up and down the ticket, and then hold them accountable until they get the job done,” Obama said in his speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Watching over the ‘Watchmen’

The 1980s was a pivotal point for comic books and the medium as a whole. Even today’s modern elements seen in the ever-so-popular superhero television series and movies have their tonal origins from the period. During this, graphic novels began extremely popular.
