Almost every student in a major of the humanities has experienced the same dreaded moment. It’s during the first few weeks of class when everybody is introducing themselves, when the classroom environment is still setting in, that the realization sets: The class is filled with engineering students desperate to fulfill their 300-level humanities requirement at the University of Michigan.

Despite attempts to remain out of the public spotlight and dodge partisan judgment best reserved for elected officials, the U.S. Supreme Court has cultivated quite a prominent (and romantic) image in the American imagination.

For 35 days, the U.S. government remained shut down, marking the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. The world was seemingly reduced to a gridlock between President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D.

This past November, Israel faced an unfortunate and oft-repeated event as the country was hit by a barrage of attacks by Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Hillary Clinton proclaimed that single-payer healthcare will “never, ever” happen, citing its impracticality. Despite Clinton’s victory over progressive standard-bearer Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the primary, Democrats have made a stunning lurch to the left on health care and a whole other host of issues since the 2016 election.

Who would’ve thought such a simple, everyday question could trigger so much anxiety and dread?

More than four years since the start of the Flint water crisis, thousands of residents still have lead pipes. Flint is in the process of finding and replacing those pipes, but it is challenging.

Since I was eight years old, my teachers and parents warned me to avoid the types of clothing that revealed my feminine features because men on the streets, uncles who visit my house and even young boys in my class might be provoked to take advantage of me.
