OUR VIEW: “People will die:” a deep look into MIchigan’s no-fault reform

Over the summer, big changes were making their way through Michigan legislation. Signed into law by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Public Act 21 and Public Act 22 are a couple of the biggest reforms to auto insurance that Michigan has seen to date. Under the guise of lowered rates, many are on board with the new system. However, there is no […]

Our View: The cannabis marketplace will spark up the mitten state’s economy

Our View: The cannabis marketplace will spark up the mitten state’s economy

After the passing of Proposal 1 during the 2018 midterm election, the state of Michigan officially legalized the recreational use of cannabis. This is groundbreaking, as Michigan became the first state in the Midwest to do so. Recreational cannabis dispensaries are expected to begin sales officially in early 2020. We believe that this is good for Michigan. Even though the […]

Our View: Victims of trauma are traumatically not helped

Our View: Victims of trauma are traumatically not helped

Throughout the course of our time as a society, we the people have turned a blind eye to those who have experienced traumatic events. Many times, victims have been left to pick up the pieces of their lives with the judgment of society staring them in the face. The victims have been not only stigmatized, but traumatized as well. We […]

Our View: Government should rethink sex education

Our View: Government should rethink sex education

Remember the humiliating day in middle school when teachers separated the girls from the boys and we all received the talk? It was this day, in particular, our childlike innocence was snatched away and everyone knew what sex was and how it could lead to pregnancy. Walking away that day, the only things we knew could possibly stop pregnancies were […]

Our View: Do you believe in global warming yet?

“In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes.

Our View: Diversity is good for the government

This month, our country saw members of the 116th Congress sworn into office, and as the most diverse body of Congress in our nation’s history, it is a historical moment.  For the first time ever, we have more than 100 female representatives, as well as the youngest woman ever elected (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez).

Our View: Government shutdown disadvantages workers

Our View: Government shutdown disadvantages workers

Even over the holidays, Americans couldn’t escape the constant political bickering and party infighting that has become infamous over the past several years. Beyond simple headlines and speeches, now the policy battle between Republicans and Democrats has resulted in hundreds of thousands being out of work and pay over the holiday season. This. Is. Ridiculous. As many are aware, a […]

Our View: Green Christmases are a sno-go!

During the cold winter months, those living in northern states patiently await the first snow. In past years, it has been soul crushing when children wake up on Christmas morning to see the colors green and brown. We at the Collegiate believe Michigan is better with a white Christmas. Seeing the ground covered in snow helps set the mood for […]

It’s officially November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Along with this holiday comes a time for families to reunite, celebrate and enjoy a meal together. However, where families used to sit at the table now sits empty chairs and cold food. The cause for the emptiness at the table? Why, the latest on deals and savings of course. […]

Our View: Hallmark holidays are a waste of time

Our View: Hallmark holidays are a waste of time

Hallmark holidays are pointless and attempt to bring meaning to the everyday, mundane lives we lead. We at the Collegiate think of these holidays as ways for businesses to make money and as forcing people to celebrate something that only has meaning to a certain group of people. Moreover, some of these holidays are redundant and unnecessary. The start of […]
