Nick Inverso, SGA Vice President of Finance

My name is Nick Inverso and I’m a fifth year pharmacy student. I have been a member of SGA since my freshman year and I am serving my fourth term as a member of the executive board. I currently serve as the Vice President of Finance. This position requires that I manage and distribute the funding set aside for organizations and student activities. Some advice I would like to offer: throughout this year, make a promise to yourself to explore what is available and join some activity/organization. It’s fine if it’s something familiar to you, but don’t discount something completely...

Deep Parikh, SGA Executive Vice President

Hey, my name is Deep Parikh and I am a 5th year pharmacy student here at USciences. I am originally from Iselin, New Jersey. I am a fan of soccer and although I don’t look like it, I’ve been a huge fan of metal, punk, and rock music ever since middle school. My dislikes include people who say they don’t like Game of Thrones. To the rest of the Executive Board (a.k.a. the “Eboard”), I am the weird one of the group, but I am also the most entertaining….well at least I think I am. Fall 2015 will mark my...

This T-Shirt Is a Lie!

Okay so this isn't what the t-shirt looks like but I couldn't find a picture. Believe me, I tried. I ran around the campus searching bulletin boards but to could not, so I attempted to recreate it with a t-shirt generator. You see why I didn't choose a career in fashion. Anyways the point of my sad recreation of the t-shirt is its statement that USciences football is undefeated since 1821. This a lie. Yes, a lie. Many people believe that because we don't currently have a football team, we never did. Most people are wrong. Soak in the beauty...

Selma 50 Years (and a few weeks) Later: Where Are We Now?

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Selma, I think we should look at where the racial divide is today. In my opinion, this look won’t be pretty but let’s start with the positives. Our president is African-American which certainly indicates there has been progress since the original march through Selma. Also, water fountains are no longer designated for race. However, and perhaps this is due to how the media displays things, I see many negatives. According to thinkprogress.com, admittedly a biased website, only 1.2% of fortune 500 CEOs are African-Americans. CNN supports this disparity stating “The United States government...
