Amaranth, like any other student publication in universities, has gone through hurdles in the past years.

Every college student at VSU has surely experienced the dilemma of managing their daily, weekly, and even monthly allowance. With the consistent increase in the price of goods in the market, students are always challenged to adjust their preferences to match their budget; it is a harsh reality that every Viscan struggles to face. A lot of students even go to extreme measures just to save money, such as skipping meals, and even resorting to unhealthy saving habits due to stress brought on by a limited allowance. With this in mind, let us look at different strategies to save money without having to compromise your health.
As we celebrate Valentine’s Day, we primarily circulate our vocabularies around “love”, “forever” and all the terms that one would find cheesy on a regular basis. While we cringe when we see a display of one’s love in public, we also ironically ingrain this belief that every person must, at some point in their life, find “the one”.
Food preferences vary from person to person and are rooted from the influence of our culture and environment. From the savory flavors of the sea to the eccentric tastes of food in the land markets; food is everywhere to be found yet many people are still hungry.
It’s a grand time to be alive when famous anime have simultaneously begun and ended. Attack on Titan finale, SpyxFamily Season 2 opening, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2— you name it, you have it. With all the advent and denouement of these animes, it’s no surprise that people of all ages have been going onto streaming sites just to catch up on their favorite episodes. Yet, have you ever wondered why this type of media genre is still so famous, despite its existence 100 (yes, a hundred!) years ago?
The 72nd Miss Universe 2023 competition in El Salvador has just ended, and as an avid pageant fanatic, I need to vent. Miss Universe is a pageant I hold near and dear to my heart. It’s a yearly thing of mine to watch out for what’s happening in each year’s competition: the highlights and the low blows of the night, and I’d like to share an honest overview of how the pageant went for me. Don’t worry, we can agree to disagree, but valid points will be spilled, so take a straw and sip responsibly.
From civilians transformed to mindless titans to survey corps killed for the benefit of humanity, to genocide committed for the slights long passed, we examine the ethics of sacrifice. Is it inevitable? Is it worth it? Do the ends justify the means?
Pride Month is a celebration of LGBTQ+ culture and a proclamation of freedom to be our most unapologetic selves. It’s the month of ever-expanding rainbow representation!
Breaking free from the “Bury The Gays” trope and tragic endings in LGBTQ+ Cinema, you can watch some feel-good, emotionally rewarding movies this Pride Month.
What hits the message of dystopia being realized in Parasite is the direct yet brilliantly tucked emphasis on the level of impact of climate change on society, especially on differing socio-economic classes: the crisis of the climate affects the rich and poor differently.
This year’s Ginoong Malakas and Binibining Maganda pageant saw the emergence of a Gladiator and a Dragon amongst the finest beauties and brawns of the university. As these two take center stage, let us get to know them even more through their journey of becoming the newest faces of VSU.
With every new semester comes the same old predicament for both ongoing and new Viscans; ‘I don’t have a place to stay yet’. Whether you are an incoming freshman or transferee who did not apply or was not accepted to an in-campus dormitory, or you are an old student who got evicted from the dorms and/or wishes to move to a new place, you are all going to face the same obstacle. And this issue is further aggravated as the Viscan population continues to increase each year, so finding adequate accommodation for students has grown to be a more dreadful process.
With a variety of choices of places to eat in the bustling Visayas State University, it is with no doubt that it can be an arduous endeavor to look for the perfect spot that will satisfy your grumbling stomach. It adds more struggle when waiting in long queues amidst jam-packed cafeterias and eateries. However, tucked away from the public sight is a restaurant unlike any other that thrives under the management skills of talented and skilled BS Hospitality and Management students.
Pio Paolo Fernandez from the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and Honey Pie Tagon from the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) hailed as the newest titleholders of Mr. and Ms. VSU 2023, respectively. As surreal as it may be to become representatives of the region’s top university, the path to these coveted crowns was no walk in the park.
Diversity has been long known to every present and former Viscans. Each one has its own experiences, memories, and stories to tell about their VSU journey. The university had made an enormous positive impact on every alumni student that made their stay notable and yearn for its irresistible energy and engaging environment.

One of the things that makes life dreadful is realizing that the things you love to do can burn you out, too.
Before entering college, one of the goals that we usually set for ourselves is to maintain a regular student status until graduation, to not have a hard time figuring out which subject to take during enrollment since we could easily follow a block schedule, earn a Latin honor if we worked and studied hard enough, or spend our college life facing new challenges and making fond memories. Then something shifts, and you find yourself different from who you were when you first started college.
There have been reports recently of strange sightings of relatively small yet elusive snakes lurking in certain areas of the campus. Some have reported seeing it slithering through the grass and trees of the VSU Eco Park, while others claim that it has been spotted scaling the premises of the Department of Liberal Arts and Sciences (DLABS). Words about the sightings were quick to spread, and so did panic. But what do we know about these reptiles? And does it pose a danger to the Viscan community?
