Why I Got Married at 18 Years Old

As May approaches each year, young people are graduating high school, planning summer trips as new high school graduates, transitioning into adulthood and preparing for college or even their first job outside of school. My situation at 18 years old was completely different from all of my friends as I was not only graduating high school and transitioning into becoming a college student, I was preparing to be a wife.

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

Should College Students Vote … or is it All Just a Waste of Time?

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?

Protesters with signs march on Washington, D.C., in August of 1963, proving then what we know now, just how important it is for us all to vote in the presidential elections. The original black and white negative was taken by Marion S. Trikosko, colorized by Jordan J. Lloyd. The image is archived in the U.S. Library of Congress. The background flag is a photo taken by Lucas Sankey and provided copyright-free on Unsplash. The graphic composite is by C. Allin Means.

Why I Watch Presidential Debates and You Should Too

Since I have become an adult and began immersing myself in politics, I have heard many comments from people who do not have opinions or simply choose not to vote because of their lack of knowledge in political candidates and topics. Thankfully due to our technologically advanced world, we are able to watch televised debates to better shape our opinions, educate Americans to prepare for elections and proudly cease excuses of political ignorance.


Presidential debates are a storied and revered event during any campaign season, and whether we are in the middle of a pandemic or not, candidates should never avoid them, and we should never avoid watching them.     Photo by C. Allin Means
