Students find that they are exposed to a lot of independence when they start studying for the first time. Enjoying clubs and their newfound freedom for the first time can sometimes wear thin and take a toll on their budget. If you study you need to keep your funds available for study material food and living costs so partying around the clock is sometimes out of the question. Alcohol and partying can also take a toll on your health which means you need to find some other activities that are a little calmer and a bit more productive.

There are plenty of students who love to stay clued up on politics, news and general world information. But it’s hard to stay on top of things when all news channels only seem to focus on a certain popular aspect of the country. Lately every news channel, social media news site and news website have been focusing on Donald Trump’s victory with the elections. Hundreds of Donald Trump jokes, memes and quotes are flooding the internet and every news channel seems to have some interesting piece of gossip on America’s latest president. And yes, they have a good point because very few people expected Trump to ever run for president and since he won the elections he have been making some big changes in the world. But there are plenty of other information that students also need to stay clued up on. Here are some of the major world news feeds that you probably missed out on since everyone started talking about the new president.

There’s a constant war going on about your literary classes
Some historical literary books like “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by Harper Lee and the all classic “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is causing huge debates in school systems due to some of the racial slurs used in the books. The novel; “To Kill a Mockingbird” have been removed and reinstated 13 times around the country and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is one of the most frequently banned books in the country. But these literary works only seem to come back due to community arguments that claim that these are timeless stories and deserve a place in American history. We only can wonder how the constant changes in banning and reinstating literature will affect student grades.
