If you told me three years ago that I would be an editor at The Spectrum, I would not have believed you. Going into my sophomore year, I felt disoriented. I was beginning a new major and readjusting to life after the pandemic lockdown.


We did it live!

So maybe I was wrong. Maybe I am a journalist. But more importantly, I found a family of wonderful, silly people who pulled me out of my shell and gave me a home. And I will be forever grateful to them.


Stay golden, Pony Boy

Hello, I’m Rachel. Unless you read my one eclipse article or my unserious quips in the Spec Recs, you didn’t read what I had to say, but if you subscribed to the newsletter, you definitely saw it.

Being immature about sex can lead to slut-shaming

Slut-shaming is accusing someone of being “too sexual” and using that as grounds to insult, harass or bully them. This can look like demeaning someone for wearing “revealing” clothes, making fun of someone for having sex and/or blaming victims of sexual assault. Women and girls are typically the victims of this type of harassment.
