During the winter of the 1970-71 school year, a small group of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity brothers sat in an apartment on Easton Avenue looking for something to do that would be fun, challenging and valuable to the community-at-large. Inspired in part by the recent 1969 movie “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” we decided to organize a dance marathon and chose the American Cancer Society (ACS) as the beneficiary. The local ACS chapter blessed us with the invaluable mentoring and hard work of its community volunteers Sandy and Lyn Nacht.
On April 5, the Sex and the City column of The Daily Targum criticized “Love, Simon.” The movie, the column claimed, showed a simplistic view of coming out. The parents were too perfect. The movie did not explore the ramifications of a closeted life fully enough. Furthermore, the column argued that the movie failed to include an LGBT female character. Because of this, the writer seemed to claim the movie failed as LGBT representation.
The year was 1968, and I was a senior at Rutgers — a mere 50 years ago. Two of the greatest thrills that I experienced that year came in the form of an Art History class that I took as an elective and a research project that I chose as a chemistry major. Those Art History lectures were amazing — from Egyptian art, through Impressionism and all the way up to Modern Art. Only a few years ago, when visiting the Orvieto Cathedral in the Umbria region of Italy, the beauty of that Cathedral came back to me in a flash — just like when I first viewed it through my Janson's History of Art book 50 years ago.
Around this time last year, many of us took to the streets to protest President Donald J. Trump’s Executive Order 13769, commonly known as the "Muslim ban." While the public demonstrations have been somewhat successful in limiting the effects of the executive order, there have been quite a few negative implications caused by the ban including some casualties. One such casualty on our very own campus is the Graduate Muslim Student Association (GMSA).
I am Leo Chiaet, and I am the Public Relations coordinator for Rutgers Students With Children. If you see fliers around campus advertising our group in the student centers, they are there because of me, and if you are interested in social justice I strongly recommend reaching out to us at email@example.com. We need your help.
As a Rutgers University alumna, I am writing to urge University President Robert L. Barchi to phase out animal science at Rutgers’ School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. Animal science teaches false beliefs about other animals, health and food, perpetuates mass abuse of nonhuman animals and devastation of the living world — and raising other animals is not agriculture, which means cultivation of fields. The flesh, cow’s milk and egg industries wheedled their way into our colleges of agriculture long ago under false pretenses. Our land-grant universities (LGUs) perpetuate terrible wrongs by continuing to serve, promote and sustain them.
I sincerely, without reservation, apologize to my colleagues and the entire Rutgers community for the offensive items I shared on my personal Facebook account. My conduct was irresponsible, insensitive and inexcusable. I genuinely feel remorse for what I did.
A national talking point found new roots at Rutgers University: A flyer. The rhetoric and backlash to this flyer experienced would have many believe David Duke and Richard Spencer were chanting "white power" in front of Brower Commons. No, the contents of a plain, five-word flyer that read "It's okay to be white" would be nothing out of the ordinary if the fifth word was substituted with any other race or nationality, which begs the question: Is it not ok to be white?
I spent the past weekend staying with an intentional community on Staten Island. Apprehensive at first, as I arrived and was handed the key to the house I was to be staying in, which was also a key to all of the buildings owned by the community, I decided to get stuck in as much as I could. The group embrace diversity and only follow four simple rules, with their key goal being to work out problems together.
Recently, I read an article that was featured in The Daily Targum entitled “NJPIRG raises awareness of new ‘Chain Reaction Report’ at media event on George Street” by Max Marcus.

The title, “Trump won election due to racial privilege,” begs for a lively debate, and it is my pleasure to play devil’s advocate and address some of the points made.
One day it was a sunny, 60 degrees Fahrenheit and I spent my time enjoying the warmth. The next, I woke up and snow was accumulating all around me.
When word came that Steve Van Zandt would be this year’s commencement speaker, many students responded with a quizzical expression.
As a proud Rutgers alumnus, I was disheartened to see the Conservative Union flyer that made the Targum’s front page on March 1, 2017.
As a professor of religion, I am, of course, thrilled at the idea of a religious literacy course being required for all Rutgers students.
As a child, I became obsessed with knowing the lives and achievements of America’s Founding Fathers.
This letter is in response to the recent articles covering immigration.My grandfather, Albert Joseph Bialek, came to the United States from Poland (Galicia) in 1910.
In the months following President Donald J. Trump’s election, pundits and personalities from across the political spectrum have suggested various strategies for “resisting Trump” and his administration’s policies.
In its first days, President Donald J. Trump's administration has been in a rush to change many of their campaign promises into executive orders.
