Written by Hope Dickson The saying “There is strength in numbers” is an old proverb that we may have had heard at some point in our lives. Sound familiar?

You are 1 out of that 6,996 in statistics, or you make up .14 percent of Clayton State’s population.

But why rush to have it, when you are trying to figure yourself out in … Continue readingSex and College- Do they mix?
