The Best Version


Posted on Nov 10, 2014

Hello Pirates! If you could be anyone in the world, who would it be? Who would you want to switch places with and live as for 1 day? What about 1 month? A year? Often times, we want strive to be someone, someone other than ourselves. We want to see what it is like to live as someone else, to see life through their eyes instead of our own. But what we fail to realize is that we should strive be a better version of ourselves, to find...

Trick or Treat!


Posted on Oct 27, 2014

Hello Pirates! I hope everyone has survived Midterms season and is ready to push through the rest of the semester! Halloween is only a few days away so I hope you are all getting your sweet tooth ready. As kids, it was always about the costumes and the candy, going around the neighborhood with friends and family in the hopes to have the biggest bag of candy by the end of the night. But now, as we leave our childhood behind and enter...

Posted on Oct 13, 2014

Hello Pirates! I hope that fall break has treated you well, and you are all rejuvenated for the rest of the Fall Semester. With the semester half way done, I’m sure that the papers, exams, and projects are beginning to pile up. Midterms season is time that students tend to cram two months of information into their brain in the hopes that they will remember every detail of the subject content.

Best Places to Study


Posted on Oct 3, 2014

By: SAM CUTRONE Everybody has different studying habits. Some like to study late at night, while others during the day. Some enjoy studying with people, while others prefer isolation. Some like to study with music, while others in silence. When it comes to studying, I like to abide by the motto “Just do you.”  With that in mind, an environment according to your studying preferences is key.  SHU students often forget  the different...

Asking a Professor for Help


Posted on Oct 3, 2014

By: TYLER GIBBONS Asking your professor for help may be one of the most intimidating things you have to deal with at school, yet it shouldn’t be. Professors are there to help you out and aid you in understanding the concepts. There are a couple of ways you could approach your professors.

How to Best Study for an Exam


Posted on Oct 3, 2014

By: Albery Paula Exams contribute a great percentage to an individual’s grades; therefore it is crucial to study properly for each exam throughout the semester. There is no such thing as the best way to study for an exam, because everyone learns the course material in different ways and at their own pace. For instance, I like to start studying for an exam at least five days before and study small amounts of information each day, then...
