Students, try to see if your school has a Factiva subscription. With Factiva, you can search archives and get many international newspapers in full text. Don't depend on others to teach you everything, but use the resources you have been given as a college student. So many students waste the resources we have- libraries full of books, subscriptions to many databases- which many people would love to have. If you're just in college to booze it up and party, well, that's a failure of our system to let people in who have no interest in doing anything. I'm not saying that students should never drink, or never party, but they should try to actually learn something too. One can read an article on something Thursday night and go out on Friday night, that's all I'm saying.
