On Nov. 13, Paris was rocked by the worst terrorist attack in Europe in over a decade. Six nearly simultaneous attacks throughout the city left over 120 people dead and upwards of 300 wounded. The attacks, attributed to ISIL by President Francois Hollande, were carried out at popular tourist venues such as a concert hall, bars, restaurants and France's national stadium, where a soccer game between France and Germany was taking place.
There is a difference between sympathy and empathy. The former is a shared feeling, while the latter is related to understanding. When it comes to the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, everyone exhibited sympathy. So many people changed their Facebook profile pictures to a photo of them on a family vacation or study abroad trip, smiling proudly in front of the Eiffel Tower
Race can be one of the most awkward conversation topics to discuss, even within a diverse setting like a college campus. An observation that presents itself as peculiar because college-level education represents a setting of higher learning, and thus higher perspective.
From the time we can walk, we start to learn what success is.Success wears Western business attire. Success has “skin-color” foundation. Success boasts flawless makeup every day. Success wears pearls and matching earrings. Matching everything, actually. Success uses dainty shoes and fitted coats. Success has perfect hair — the kind that’s straight or has manipulated soft curls. Success can afford a car for one or a cab. Success goes to fancy parties, expensive dates.
It's that time of the year again, ladies and gentlemen. The event that has all the boys drooling and all the girls bawling, the annual experience that will have you running to the gym — yeah, you've guessed it! It’s time for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
I don’t get it, how do people support Dallas Cowboys player Greg Hardy? He is a worthless piece of trash, an awful human being. This opinion is based on his arrest from one year and a half ago among other incidents and comments.
Students at the University of Missouri made history this week. On Monday, University President Timothy M.
The term “gentrification” seems to be on everyone’s lips nowadays. Hell, it’s fueled something of a cottage industry amongst the Internet’s commentariat within the past few years. We can’t go by two weeks without a think piece or two from the New York Times, the Atlantic, Vox, Slate and so on without an article that speaks to the subject.
In 2007, the notion that a child could become “emo” after prolonged exposure to the darkest corners of the Internet was enough to strike fear into the hearts of parents. Don’t believe me? The proof is in the pamphlets. So when we look back on this year, what cultural anxiety will stick out as what wrought parents with fear?
Social justice work came into my life because of the pain I experienced through the interlocking marginalization of my multi-faceted identities. For many reasons beyond my queerness, expression and body, my whole being is a place of battlefield.
From the day we apply to college, to the day we graduate, a major priority when it comes to picking your home for the next four years is safety. Having campus police, safe surroundings and resident assistants on constant duty are concerns that both students and parents have. Students at universities small or large, private or public, are always reluctant to venture through campus alone after the sun goes down — and with good reason.
After reading Radcliffe Bent’s article on the notion of the dumb university, dumb student dichotomy—which I found to be a very thought provoking column, despite the usual overly-masculine hum on social media—I immediately decided to bring about my own thoughts on the matter.
On the cover of the most recent issue of Pointe Magazine are Ashley Murphy, Ebony Williams and Misty Copeland. But what stands out the most about this magazine cover is that these three women are the most well-known black ballet dancers. The year 2014 was a controversial one in the world of ballet, especially in terms of the lack of racial diversity in elite ballet companies. In April, there was a staging of "Swan Lake" at Washington, D.C.’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
The University is dumb and you are proof. You are dumb. You are dumb because you are a student. You are a student because you are dumb. Your education is, in fact, making you dumb. To explain, you are a bad student. You are on academic probation because you are a bad student. You are currently earning your second consecutive 1.0, further proving you are bad student. Next, you will be suspended by the University ... because you are a bad student.
Last week, I had a bit of a rough time. My midterms hadn't gone quite as planned, job applications were really starting to pile up and a dress I had been waiting to be delivered for months, didn't fit me right.
This past Tuesday, for the first time since the Golden State Warriors held the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, the NBA tipped off with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Chicago Bulls. Last year, in LeBron James's return home to Cleveland, his team came up two wins short of the championship.
The Rutgers Football Team: under siege by all who love to over-exaggerate and lack sound research.
If you take a look at your license, you may see the words “organ donor” printed across the front.
I was driving down to campus last week, and I saw a giant billboard: “Blue Lives Matter. #thankublu” written in bold, capital white letters over the image of a police badge. I almost stopped my car in the middle of the lane. This is not the sort of ridiculous propaganda I’d expect to see stuck up here, in Central Jersey, overlooking good old Route 1 North between that new Costco/Target complex and the Shoppes at North Brunswick plaza.
Conflicts of recent years have brought significant negative attention to the United States Armed Forces. Attacked by media outlets from all sides, the nation’s military institutions have been berated for unnecessary use of force, failure to complete objectives and an unprecedented drag on the nation’s budget in recent years. All things considered, the various branches of the armed forces now face another significant hurdle in recruiting future soldiers.
