Each day, I leave work in the dark of night and head to the library to toil for hours on homework. When I’ve finally finished, I want nothing more than to spend some time on a treadmill in my residence hall’s exercise room.

Professor of political science Michael Colaresi recently unveiled a new study that found countries that receive foreign aid from rival nations during civil wars are much less likely to form successful democracies after. The study, which spanned from World War II to 2009, examined democratization in war-torn countries and came to the conclusion that groups who took foreign aid had a hard time gaining the trust of the citizens once the war was over.

Last Friday, I wasn’t supposed to meet President Barack Obama. But by chance, I did. In fact, I even took a picture with him.
This Friday, President Barack Obama will come to MSU to sign the farm bill — but he is by no means the first president to visit the banks of the Red Cedar. On the afternoon of May 5, 1995, former President Bill Clinton sent more than 6,000 graduated Spartans into the new world they would soon attempt to conquer. Clinton spoke at that spring’s commencement, encouraging students about their future duties as working professionals, both to themselves and their families. During his speech that day, Clinton said it was up to the current generation to “make your historic choices for America,” according to a previous State News article by staff writer Christine Macdonald. In his speech, Clinton also addressed the Oklahoma City bombing, which at the time had happened just a few weeks before. The tragedy left 168 people dead and damaged more than 300 surrounding buildings. Clinton touched on convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh’s alleged involvement with the Michigan Militia, a right-wing paramilitary group. He said those in the militia have “broader rights here than you would in any other country in the entire world.” That day, Clinton left the students on a high note, telling them they were a part of “the real Michigan.” He joked that he knew who he was “supposed to root for” in the Big Ten conference. This was the third visit MSU received from Clinton throughout the years. He visited campus twice in 1992, once for a debate near Beaumont Tower and again later that year for the Presidential Debate at Wharton Center. At the time, he was the first sitting president to speak at MSU’s commencement in nearly 100 years.
