Every year, Americans celebrate unofficial holidays following Thanksgiving; these days are Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Nowadays, even before the Thanksgiving celebration is finished, individuals turn shopping into a sport, training in case a fight ensues over the last item that would be the perfect gift for Mom. They exercise the clicker-finger to speedily click “Buy Now” on websites before they are sold out and will develop a planned out game plan for these days. As always, every event has a history, and overtime, that history holds the chance to be forgotten.

Surrounded by friends and family? Watching the football game? People stuffing the turkey then stuffing their mouths? Check, check, and check. But wait…something is missing: The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade [MTDP]. If five people were asked what Thanksgiving means to them, in return there would be five diverse answers because each person incorporates their own traditions into the celebration of the holiday. Thanksgiving is a forever changing holiday, but in 1924 came one addition—in the form of a parade—to the celebration, and this caused the fourth Thursday of November to never be the same.
On Tuesday, October 28, Student Organization, the full-time undergraduate student government, and the Student Organization Junior Class of 2016 transformed Downs Hall from a modern atmosphere into a blast from the past. Kean University students and faculty came out to #ThrowBackTuesday [#TBT] in their best 80s and 90s attire, ready to embrace a night in the past. Tables were periodically dispersed throughout the room, each holding diverse items that were free for the taking, such as candy, glow-in-the-dark jewelry, and t-shirts. Attendees were encouraged to decorate with every color marker imaginable. The music dating back to the 1970s took over the atmosphere, and the lights persistently changed from blue to green to red; these features added to the retro-chic aspect of the event in Downs Hall. Kean University students and faculty enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
Graduating college with a degree in hand, prepared to make a mark on the world, but cannot land a job. This is the experience of a decent portion of college graduates as it is no secret that the job market is tough to break into. To beef up resumes and increase the likelihood of getting their foot in the door, students are advised to take on internships. Internships are positions fulfilled by those interested in learning about a trade in a professional setting. Interns are not considered full-time employees at their place of business, but more so rather as apprentices who are often times unpaid.
Sweatshirts are coming out, nights are cooling off, and students want to escape the stress of their course work. It is not uncommon for students to escape by watching movies, but this month calls for a particular genre of movie. Viewership of horror movies skyrockets in October due to the looming holiday at the end of the month that is Halloween. What better way to gear up for Halloween than watching horror movies? Kean University students were asked what their favorite movies to watch during this time of year are.
It is that time of year again: Halloween. Bring on the toothaches from too much candy, the frustrations of trying to find the perfect costume, and the sore throats from screaming at scary movies. When an individual is watching horror movies, has he or she ever wondered which villain they would be? Kean University students were asked which of the following villains they would choose to be:
Domestic. Violence. Two simple words when separate, but when placed in the same context they can instill a hodgepodge of emotions, thoughts, and reactions. Domestic violence is when one intimate partner carries out deliberate actions of abusive behavior, such as physical or sexual assault, battery, emotional abuse, threats, and/or intimidation, against the other partner. In domestic violence situations, one significant other revels in inflicting power and control as weapons against the other person in the relationship. Silvia Hernandez, executive director of El Centro Hispanoamericano in Plainfield, commented, “in your neighborhood, in my neighborhood, it’s [domestic violence] happening.”

At Kean University, there is one event that is integrated with diversity as it brings people together from all walks of life. On the night of Wednesday, September 10, 2014, Meet the Greeks [MTG] drew in waves of students and alumni.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to report that we begin the new academic year with a strong wind at our backs, and our eyes on the horizon.” A man of calculated verbal communication, Kean University President Dawood Farahi connected to the audience, and by a few words, easily gripped the attention of the many listeners.
