When Daniel Tomaka graduated from Canisius College with a degree in economics and finance he certainly did not imagine himself the man who would save SEM students from the never-ending computer problems they face. Yet, here we are, relying on SEM's newest hire to keep everything running smoothly. Mr. Tomaka's interest in computers started off as a hobby. He left his family soft drink company F...

The long class period gave each side time to separate and consolidate their arguments into precisely how they want it. By November 15, seniors held an intense yet respectfully agreeable debate on the pros and cons of zoos. Each side was well prepared for the debate both having their own notes on arguments...

This is because nearly 90% of the population has dropped since 1990. This drop is...

Popular statistics such as the wage gap make it almost impossible to deny the sexism that occurs in the workplace. However, it becomes all the more real when a woman with a high position shares her personal experiences being brought down by men who would otherwise treat...
