At the GAYpril kickoff event with Lena Waithe on Monday night, Waithe was pressed to respond to the anonymous allegation Babe published against Aziz Ansari and how that affects the quality and perception of their Netflix original series “Master of None.” Waithe said there should not be any effect. She then gave examples of “The Cosby Show” and Whitney Houston, and how the people who create art and media should then be able to be separated from it. This reminded me of a big question in my current art history seminar class that has been debated by the fathers of art history, philosophers and connoisseurs alike: How much do you consider the life of an artist in the evaluation of the quality of their art?
Writer, actress and creator Lena Waithe sat calm and cool in the Livingston Student Center, kicking off this year’s GAYpril celebrations with the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities and the Rutgers University Programming Association (RUPA). In a thrift-store Bill Cosby-style sweater, Japanese kicks and a baseball cap, the Southside Chicago native’s trademark boyish style was just as authentic as the stories she told about growing into her role as a Hollywood changemaker.
The school year is almost over and with that comes the civic duty to elect next year’s student body president. The Rutgers University Student Assembly (RUSA) presidential debate is this Thursday and I want to know what I should be looking for in my next president, and there was no one better to consult than current RUSA President Evan Covello.
At last week’s RUSA meeting, University Chancellor Debasish Dutta lectured about the current state of University affairs and his own academic and professional background, but what I found most interesting was the question he answered afterward about the core curriculum. A student asked if STEM students or others with credit-heavy majors should be subjected to the common core.
If you are familiar with Rutgers University’s politically conservative organizations, you may have heard of their grievances with the University in general for being too liberal and having overtly Left-leaning biases or agendas. They have worked to share their worries with an active (and sometimes offensive) Facebook presence, but their latest Right-wing passion project is to revive The Centurion, a self-proclaimed conservative news outlet on campus. I fully support the idea of clearly labeled partisan writing, and people on all ends of the political spectrum should actively aim to use their freedom of the press to share their ideas. But if some conservatives on campus truly believe and are upset with others allegedly taking sides, creating an explicitly one-sided publication will not help their end goal, especially not one without a clear mission statement beyond creating controversy. The remaking of The Centurion makes me believe that these conservative groups on campus are not concerned with whether the University is actually taking sides, but instead whether everyone else takes their side.
West Ham United is not the most popular club in the top-flight of English football and seldom garners attention from the small number of international soccer fans in the States. But if you are from Essex or the East End, like I am, then you likely support the Hammers and have been following this season’s triumphs and laments weekly.
Prepare your sugar skulls, fragrant marigold flowers and most delightful candies because this year’s Day of the Dead is upon us. It’s time to receive the dead in Aztec fashion: Set up your ofrendas, altars, at home with bursting bright colors and photographs of your deceased loved ones. Then get ready for them to feast on your offerings for the 24 hours that they return to the temporal world.
The library, during midterms and finals, acts like a magnet for college students, attracting studiers of all types-- the all-nighters, the regulars and those scrambling to understand a whole semester of work. But, sometimes the plethora of people studying — or talking — in the library is enough to distract you from your own work. This is when you should explore the boundaries of Rutgers and the city of New Brunswick for your own workspaces.
The Front Bottoms, New Jersey’s most popular folk-punk band, released its fourth, full-length album on Friday, Oct. 13. “Going Grey” mixes TFB’s musical experimentation with frontman Brian Sella’s “wacky” lyrics and emotional authenticity.
Today, Voorhees Mall is being transformed into a visual representation of the community of interpersonal-violence survivors at Rutgers with the Clothesline Project. The project is an interactive work of art built by the stories and invites people to share their voices in a supportive space.
This Saturday, Hub City’s DJ-Producer collective will extend its "neighborly watch" to the victims of Hurricane Harvey with a benefit show at NJ Skateshop.
After a semester of demonstrations, marches and protests that drew national attention to the Rutgers campus, the University has updated its demonstration policy.
Childish Gambino did not just perform on the second night of Governors Ball 2017. He owned it.
New York — Kicking off Day Two of Governors Ball, VANT took the to the main stage with full force. Armed with lyrics dressed in political rhetoric, the London-based band’s music isn’t just for listening. It’s a call to action.
NEW YORK — Governors Ball 2017 has taken over the entirety of Randall’s Island with visual art, music and a variety of cuisine and with that comes the opportunity to fall in love with something new.
Sun in the sky, wind in your flower crown and tapestry below you while music surrounds you on all sides— you’re at a music festival. Where style, art and, of course, music intersect is where festivals take shape.
Classes are coming to an end, the sun is coming out, new albums are being released and for students on the East Coast, those are signs that point to summer music festival Governors Ball.
One of the biggest things I have to attribute to the Rutgers University and New Brunswick communities is my love for music and the arts. As a former high school jock, I never really had the time to go to theater shows, live concerts or galleries openings — until my senior year. Just by luck, I had to stop running track and cross country my last year of high school because of an injury and just so happened to be enrolled in AP art history. Now, there was not a total change of art: I’m not a visual arts student now. I haven’t stopped loving to run when I can. Nor would I call myself an expert on the arts. But this was the start of my appreciation-turned-love for the arts in the community that surrounds me now.
Last Friday night, RUPA’s Beats on the Banks set a new standard for high energy. Electric dance music (EDM) artists 3LAU and Baauer performed at the College Avenue Gymnasium for a near-sold out show, getting students on their feet and heads out of books for a night of techno-tranced drum and bass.
Gaypril is a University-wide, month-long celebration of LGBTQIA cultural history and pride.
