Taking a Trip To “Astroworld,” One of the Best Albums of the Decade

Whether you’re a fan of Travis Scott’s rap or not, “Astroworld” is 100% an album worth listening to. The extensive 17 track record appeals to many different hip-hop and rap tastes since one of your favorite musicians is likely among the 18 guest artists who make an appearance.

How Right IS the Customer?

There’s an idea prominent in the business world that proclaims “the customer is always right.” This overused company framework has led to a toxic sense of entitlement and a need for instant gratification among consumers, which in turn, has made working in customer service a dreaded job among many.

Real-Time Observations from Student Journalists on This Election Day

As Election Day 2020 begins moving from standing in lines and voting to watching phones and TV screens for indications of who might be America’s president, college students could possibly make all the difference in America for the next four years. Our MBU Timeline student journalists took photos today and penned their observations on this historic day.


The sun is barely peaking over the roof at Parkway South High School as voters line up first thing in the morning to cast their ballots in today’s election. At around 7 a.m., when MBU Timeline staffer Jack Gienke took this photo, there were a few hundred voters already in line. Voter turnout could reach a record high today.     Photo by Jack Gienke

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
