College Students, if You Don’t Vote You Can’t Affect History

Some are calling the Nov. 3 Presidential Election the most important vote in modern history, others are saying nothing much will change in the United States of America regardless of the outcome. But what about college students, and specifically college journalists? What do our MBU Timeline writers say about this topic?


The only way to get one of these stickers is to actually go to your local polling station on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and cast your vote in the presidential election. College students, do that, wear your sticker proudly, and know that you have made a difference.      Copyright-free photo by Phillip Goldsberry

Studies show that approximately two-thirds of college students are offered Adderall and other prescription stimulants between their freshman and senior years, and about half of those in that group accept the offers.
