Mental health: two words that many of us are aware of, yet few of us talk about. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 1 in 5 adults in the United States will experience a mental illness within a given year. That means that of the almost 35,000 students here at the University of South Carolina, nearly 7,000 of us will suffer from a mental illness within a year’s time. The question is, how many of us will reach out for help?
At the center of the universe is a North American common house spider.
This upcoming weekend, April 7th and 8th, Columbia Open Studios will host its annual free driving tour. The event is self led and includes artist studios from the Columbia area, as well as Lexington and Richland counties. 70 artists will be participating this year in the art tour.
Let's get something straight: Pita Pit is not a viable “drunk food” option. If the meal is something you would order two lunches in a row without an ounce of remorse, it does not suit the glorious carb and cheese covered category that satisfies an alcohol filled stomach. Some of you may have the right idea. “Ah, yes,” you say, “She’s talking about the borderline state fair options available in Columbia around 1:30 in the morning.”
In April of 2016, I travelled to Paris, Rome, and Capri. I was amazed by not only the exciting landmarks and languages, but also the beautiful scenery. Each picture captures an unforgettable moment, and I cannot wait to visit these places again.
About a month ago, I travelled to El Progreso, Honduras with a group of over 100 student volunteers from the organization Students Helping Honduras. With a mission of building 1,000 schools, SHH works tirelessly to provide this much needed education to those who need it most. For only four dollars a month (less than a Spotify premium subscription for students) you can help end the poverty cycle in Honduras.

“this is the recipe of life
Almost every year, the number one New Year’s resolution is to get in shape and the University of South Carolina is no different from the rest of the nation in this regard.
Editor's note: In the interest of full disclosure, the Garnet & Black Launch Party (9 PM-12 AM on March 22) will be held in Space Hall free of charge.

Living off-campus often means swapping your student meal plan and all of the food campus eateries such as Russell House have to offer for home-cooked meals. After a year of ready-made options, many students are left wondering where to even begin. If you’re new to off-campus living, here are three tips to stocking your pantry for success.
The best remedy for a bad yesterday is watching the sun peak out from the horizon.
I lost my keys in the river and lost
Since coming to Columbia this past August, I have struggled with finding delicious food that costs little money. I believe I have found the top three quintessential Columbia restaurants which are both affordable and great for when parents come to visit.
In this review, I have to tackle one of the greatest challenges any creative person must face, Shakespeare. The playwright gets touted as the most important writer in the English language. Going in, I knew Shakespeare's verse was going to be a challenge in comprehension and I hoped I wouldn’t get lost. Good thing this production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, directed by Louis Butelli, helps the viewer understand its story through its use of expressive acting, music and modern production tools.
“Ten.” A dozen or so voices. Digits appear on either side of the room, on screens like scoreboards. Glances flicker between the number and me. Why should they be nervous, with a wall of glass three inches thick between us? I’ve been in a drug-induced paralysis since last night — standard procedure just in case one of us panics. That’s understandable too, although it never occurred to me.
Four years ago, I read Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Eating Animals.” The descriptions of factory farming were enough to get me to stop eating chicken — until my mom made chicken for dinner later that week, at least. While my foray into sustainable eating was remarkably short-lived, an increasing number of Americans are being drawn to the strictest of the meat-free diets: veganism.
For student artists, college can seem to be paradise of opportunity. Easy access to studios, master classes, college-provided performance opportunities and other benefits create in the environment of USC and other colleges the ultimate hideaway for nurturing the newborn careers of young artists.
South Carolina’s wintertime is a great escape from the usual intolerable heat, but sadly, this new chilly air also brings far fewer choices of fruits and vegetables at the Soda City market (open each Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) If you’re like me and you love farmers markets, you go despite the cold just to see what’s in season. But when you arrive, your only choices are as random as pecans and mushrooms or as foreign as bok choy, a type of Chinese cabbage. Some may see this and give up, turning instead to Top Ramen noodles or coffee. But others can see this as a challenge, a chance to prove their food creativity. Yes, some of the produce seems just as strange as Columbia getting a snowstorm, but everyone knows that college is the best time for experimenting. So get out of your comfort zone and into the kitchen.
Burritos are one of the greatest inventions in the history of mankind. Forget Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press and Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone. Burritos are an art form: an entire, well-rounded meal wrapped up neatly in a tortilla. Truly flawless in conception. Burritos were artfully designed to make the eating experience a pleasurable, portable one. The guy who invented the burrito should be in the history books. He should be in the dictionary next to “genius.”
Contrary to what the temperature would have you believe, September has arrived and with it, football season. I’ve never been that much of a sports person, but nevertheless, I’m here to spread some Gamecock spirit. While I lack the attention span to enjoy an eternity-long quarter, there’s something that always will pull me out of the house and into the stadium on Saturdays:
