It’s finally the time for many of DePaul’s finest to pop on that flat, ill-fitting cap that marks the fact that you’ve finally finished spending money here. More importantly, the graduation ceremony denotes that, essentially, the real world is ready for you – whether you’re ready or not. Meanw...

Winter quarter finals are stressful.  It’s the dreadful blend of sharp, cold weather, little to no sleep and an out of whack schedule. Whether you’re knee-deep in research papers, preparing for a handful of exams or a cocktail of the two, this week is a breeding ground for stress.  My remedy?...
