Some students at DSU said they don't feel the connection they want with their preferred candidate. McKay Dee McDonald, a freshman theater major from Salt Lake City, said they need to a do a better job at reaching the demoworried k ) graphic. McDonald said: "With everyone on social media right now, you reach so many people everyday by throwing a tweet out there throwing a Facebook message out there." Millennia Is today are obsessed with their technology and what it can do for them. We snapchat an image, tweet a few lines, or even write a novel for a post on Facebook. With this addiction for understanding or I new things, I say millennials are all over the map when it comes to politics. I prefer to get my political news by watching shows on CNN or Fox News, while others rely on Facebook posts from their friends. 7's '3717 Whether you want to take a political side or not, there , ;e ' 4 voice to be heard. There are numerous clubs on campus that allow students to engage in political conversations like the DSU College Democrats or the DSU College Republicans. You can it even join organizations, like Turning Point U.S.A., where they allow students to share thoughts and feelings about the current state of our country. McDonald said it is important for millennials to educate themselves and learn what is going on. She also said one of the biggest hurdles millennials have to overcome is the notion that your vote doesn't count. "We are the next generation to be in Washington D.C.," McDonald said. "We are the next generation to make new laws and pass new laws." If Green is right by saying politics are just one more thing for a millen , , -- - ' . ':,' 7,( ', f' ; j i'::.'..

However, there are ways to escape this mindset and achieve a fit and healthy eating lifestyle. It is easy to be active, whether it is longboarding, attending the campus gym a couple of times a week, or even walking from class to class on campus. This part i easy for me. There are so many ,'ays we can stay fit as a student in St. George, its what is known for outdoor activities. Nevertheless, our eating habits might be a different story. "There are so many chemicals and preservatives in fast food; students don't pay at- tention to those," said Debbie Mosher, a School of Education "Even though Top Ramen is a staple in college adjunct. student meals, it is one of the worst things for you, containing more sodium in one packet than what is recommended in one day. Students should be more cautious." Kason Greenwall, a sophomore business major from Santaquin, said he tries to be more cautious in eating healthier and eating out. "I enjoy eating out, but I'm trying to cut back to eating out once a week," Greenwall said. "It's hard when friends are always wanting to go out." Stuart Brighton, a medical assistant at the health and wellness center, said: "Being in southern Utah, we encourage students to drink more water." According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, water makes up an can also create a problem. I notice franchises often sucker me with their large meal portions. Just for a couple dollars more, I can get the "Supersized" meal and be totally fine with it. These deals are often too good for me to pass average of 0 percent of the body and is needed for normal function. The study said not drinking enough water could hinder one's performance and even the normal function of their body. Water creates a balance in our diet that is curtail to the body. Another tip is to always eat breakfast. Breakfast helps the body wake up and the mind get ready to learn for the day. currently attending the gym more regularly every week and though it makes me tired and sore I feel an energy boost throughout my day giving me that focus I need. Just like DeTorres, I often catch myself in happier moods when I eat healthy which also helps me have a greater desire to learn and participate in . ' '. .7., t .

Which is why being qualified for a scholarship just because I'm the right race for the scholarship sits so uncomfortably for me. It reminds me, of when people want to date me because I'm "exotic." Please, I'm fourth generation at least on my mother's side and longer on my father's side of the family, born and raised in Southern California. I am far from exotic or That's where the root of the problem lies with race relations in America. Most of us want things to be better between the majority and minority groups. But we keep defining each other by our labelsman, woman, black, white, gay and straight. There may be a time and a place for these labels, like at the doctor's office, but we don't need them when it comes to the allocation of scholarships. Education is what will rid the world of poverty and many of poverty's associated ills. In an earning and unemployment rates study published by the U.S. Department of Labor, there was an obvious and significant decrease in unemployment with the increase of educational attainment. If we want to see a rise in educated people, we Americans may want to.start with paying our public school teachers more, so that children in impoverished areas can still receive the quality education they need to make them competitive in college. So instead of segregating people's ability to get a scholarship based on race, let's move more toward the American dream where you have the potential to achieve no matter your race, orientation or creed.
