Dear Editor of LU Champion, As a current senior at Liberty I appreciated the February 20th section titled: “Senior Year Survival Guide.”  I felt compelled to respond by encouraging my fellow seniors to look forward to graduation (and whatever may follow) with excitement, not dread.  In the culture’s eyes, on May 19th, we will graduate into adulthood.  Yet as graduation […]

To the Editor of the Liberty Champion: I am writing to thank you for publishing Macy Hrncir’s article “CVS puts a stop to Photoshop” in the February 20th publication.  The standards that beauty culture portrays and the feelings of inadequacy that stem from them are so prevalent among college-aged women.  Highlighting CVS’s new initiative not only brings attention to their […]

OPINION: PROSPER act shakes up left side of Congress

What bill is currently working its way through Congress and could influence the fate of Liberty University students’ unsubsidized loans and Pell Grants and the university’s ability to operate according to its religious convictions?

Opinion: Congress needs to stop holding DACA deal hostage

Since President Donald Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in September 2017, the promise of reinstating the program and offering DACA recipients a pathway to citizenship has been used as legislative bait. Republicans used the promise of a deal on DACA to pass multiple spending bills and to raise the debt ceiling. However, repeatedly making a promise […]
