As student representatives, some of the main grievances shared with us as constituency reports are comments, questions, or concerns about Title IX on campus. After SASA's Fall Week of Action, the student body’s relationship with Title IX had been somewhat severed after the infamous filing cabinet revealed testimonies about experiences with Title IX.

As nursing turnover has reached an all time high of 27% in 2021 (compared to 19% in 2020), this culture of burnout is not unique to the hospital setting. The stress of nursing school has continued to get worse over the course of the pandemic and contributes to the worsening mental health of nursing students. A heavy workload combined with limited resources creates an absence of adequate self care, making resilience nearly impossible. Chronic stress has an active impact on the body, and studies have found a significant increase in depression, anxiety, insomnia, and psychological stress for health care providers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. These statistics are reflected in nursing students as well.

It’s 7:30 a.m. on my first day. The sun is bright, I can see the ocean from my bed, and I am warm. I think this is what people call ‘pure bliss.’ I want to run around and yell and be all disgracefully excited, but the other workers seem accustomed to this luxury, so I act like it’s no big deal.
My first time going to see an artist live was at a baile, which is a concert and a dance where they typically play regional Mexican music. It’s one thing to listen to the songs on Spotify — but it was entirely different getting to see the grupos, or groups, perform live. Hearing the sound of the instruments, the trumpets, the guitars, and the singer’s vocals sounding exactly the same live, all while being able to dance… it was a sick first concert.

As the school year comes to an end, students are fully engulfed in school work and final projects.
