Dear Peer Column 2/22/13

Dear Peer, I am in a happy relationship with my boyfriend. My only issue is that he is afraid to tell his parents about me! We have been dating for a year now, and he has already met my parents. My parents and friends are telling me that he must not be serious about me because he does not think that I am important enough to meet his parents. My boyfriend is Nigerian and I do not know what to think. He has told me that I will meet them, but has not made it happen yet. I don’t know […]

COMMENTARY: Students Disagree with New Neighborhood Parking Restrictions

Let’s cut right to the chase! The parking at Morgan State University sucks. There is absolutely no parking here on campus for the students and hell, the staff members have a hard time parking, too. And what happened this semester? The on-street parking became more restricted. When students came back from winter break they were shocked to find that parking on the west side of Perring Parkway—which had been mostly unrestricted during school hours—was changed to one-hour parking between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. For students, it went from being hard to find parking to being nearly […]

She decided to go to school in Philadelphia and I came to Baltimore so neither one of us is in Jersey where we met, but when we both go home for breaks, that’s the only time we see each other. I do a lot on […]

Commentary: Is College Really Necessary?

Commentary: Is College Really Necessary?

Going to college is an experience one would never forget. But, the price tag attached to it makes anyone wonder if it’s worth getting buried financially. According to the College Board, at an instate public college a student pays an average of $22,261 in 2012-13. In that same year, a student pays $43,289 at an private college. Yes, college is exciting and gratifying for anyone who can’t wait to leave their parents’ home and be on their own, but in the end is it offering anything significant in return? We obtain a college degree, but in many cases the cost […]
