There Is Beauty In The Struggle And That Beauty Is God

Through all the turmoil and chaos of the end of the semester, here’s a prayer.

There Is Beauty In The Struggle And That Beauty Is God
Diana Simumpand

The end of the school year has finally approached and I don’t know if I want to leap for joy or cry. The thought of summer and relaxation is extremely exciting because it means we can have a break from all of the stress we were put through throughout the school year- but, before we can begin to think of summer we must make it to the end.. which is way more harder than it seems.

Every college student is preparing for exams on top of completing extra credit assignments, last minute projects, overdue homework, and anything else needed to secure their GPA. With all of those piling responsibilities you can imagine the excruciating pains and aches everyone is dealing with due to all of the stress and chaos. Thankfully, there is something greater than any type of circumstance we deal with as college students and that thing is called prayer.

Prayer is the greatest weapon every man can use against the struggles of the world and there is great power behind it. The only thing that is keeping me from going crazy amidst this time of the school year is prayer so, without further ado, here's a prayer for every college student, or student in general who needs some extra glory.

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you with graciousness and thanks for carrying us under your wings this school year. You have driven us to exceed and to persevere through all of the shortcomings and trials we have faced as college students.

The strength you granted us to make it day by day in our academics is why we are still here today, still pursuing our education and dreams. We ask that you continue to grant us strength- emotionally, mentally, and physically as we finish out this school year. Energy, confidence, and motivation is key to a successful academic journey so please continue to grant those virtues to us. There is beauty in the struggle and that beauty is you.

Thank you for walking with us in these endeavors and please continue to hold our hands as we go forward in our aspirations. Every college student needs you, and we know you have us. Amen.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
