After waiting on top of the parking garage for nearly 15 minutes, a sunset barely forming amidst dark clouds on the Columbia skyline, a Jeep pulls up and parks. Almost as soon as Rob Magee and Evan Delp step out of the vehicle, skateboard and guitar case in respective hands, their vision for the photoshoot is set straight.
A U.S. national park. A UNESCO biosphere reserve. A site for an annual synchronous firefly light show. These signifiers of environmental and cultural importance describe Congaree National Park, South Carolina’s only national park that happens to be a mere 30-minute drive from the University of South Carolina’s campus.
In 2005, more than 80 members of the United Nations ratified the Kyoto Agreement. It was an extension of a climate treaty created in the last decade, calling nations and states across the globe to commit to acknowledging and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to curb the effects of climate change.
While it may lack as compelling a cast of heroes and villains as World War II, World War I shook the world in a way no conflict ever has in the course of human history. It took place at a turning point, at a moment where there were people still riding into battle with swords on horseback while at the same time, the first ever tanks rolled out of factories.

When 6ixx speaks, it’s hard not to listen.
It doesn’t take very long living in Columbia to realize trains are a big part of everyday life. They can make getting to class difficult, create a killer traffic jam and be an overall general annoyance.

Graffiti art can be found scaling the walls of nearly every train car, from artists that stretch across the country to our own city of Columbia.
Outside of the old Echo Theater in downtown Laurens, South Carolina – just an hour away from Columbia – Reverend David Kennedy points to the balcony above the marquee.
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.

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.

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.
