Some of Rutgers’ main values are diversity and inclusion, and the encouragement of communal support no matter one’s creed or color — we want to protect members of our community against hate and prejudice.

At this point in time, it seems clear that those two values are clashing.

As a result of a student-led petition produced last week, Rutgers Undergraduate Academic Affairs (UAA) has officially canceled the appearance of foreign policy journalist, Lisa Daftari, due to perceived Islamophobia in a speech she gave to The Heritage Foundation regarding Islamic terrorism.

There’s nothing like the freedom of college that gets everyone excited for the fall semester. The parties, the sleepless nights and, of course, the campus food. As much as colleges have stepped up their game in recent years, sometimes a home-cooked meal is what we all need after working so hard. Many people find it difficult to cook meals in their residence halls and apartments, whether they have a microwave or a full kitchen. Lots of us feel like we don’t have the time or just do not know what to make. Sometimes it’s just easier to order in, which can harm our health and wallets. With no-brainer recipes for when you just need something quick and easy, there’s no need for fancy equipment or expensive foods from Trader Joe’s. These are especially great for when you’re sick of the dining hall food but can’t afford to eat out again. Let the convenience surprise you.
