It’s hard enough to roll out of bed to make an 8 a.m. class. For the 88 percent of SF State students who live off campus, the struggle is even more real. Many students must rely on the questionably steadfast steeds known as Muni and
Outside Lands took over Golden Gate Park last weekend, displaying a diverse range of acts such as Arctic Monkeys, Macklemore, Tiesto and Tegan and Sara, leaving our feet sore and our throats hoarse—but also an environmental impact on Golden Gate Park.

I believe in the United States Constitution. It has worked for more than 200 years, however, I also believe in gun control and common sense.
It is hard to read the news and see a three-year-old child find his mother’s gun in her glove box and
Welcome to the United States, home of beer, cheeseburgers, free speech and lots of guns. We also have an entire system of laws that protects our right to enjoy all four of these things.

While waiting in a drive-thru, many people don’t consider the bad choices they are making when it comes to eating underpriced, bad quality foods on an everyday basis. If they made the decision to eat organic foods, the benefits are priceless.

Let's face it, everyone’s busy enough trying to multitask and juggle the various aspects of their lives, whether it be work, school, parenting or whatever else. It wouldn't be wise or helpful to tell people to put more thought into being environmentally friendly every single
Greenland’s farmers are planting strawberries this year. It’s an odd choice for agriculturalists on an almost uninhabitable glacial island, but for the last few years more and more of the country has been opening up to farming and oil exploration. It means an economic boom

A faster commute between campus and downtown is a nice thought, but building a subway through 19th Avenue is a pipe dream.
The project is designed with good intentions but completely impractical. Students will not benefit soon enough and the money could better be used elsewhere.
Twenty-one pedestrians were hit and killed last year in San Francisco and Mayor Ed Lee’s “Be Nice, Look Twice” Campaign is among the most useless things he’s done during his time in office. People just aren’t that nice and a simple campaign cannot change their

With only 11 percent of SF State students living on campus, it’s safe to say that some of the remaining 89 percent commute across the Golden Gate Bridge and would be affected by the raising of the toll.
An increase of $1 has been approved for crossing
From $6 beers to $10 sandwiches, San Francisco is not the cheapest city to live in — it is the most expensive, finally surpassing New York City. Whether residents are getting bombarded by aggressive panhandlers for spare change or harassed by the SFMTA for a
In our society, frivolous social networks seem to be a more pressing concept than social unrest and the average young adult can probably give you a longer list of celebrities who have been to rehab than Pulitzer Prize winners. It’s safe to say our priorities
