It is completely and utterly obvious that the tuition that continues to increase is not being put to intentions of our interests as students. Instead of receiving increased services, the libraries are open fewer hours on the weekends, the dining halls have closed earlier, and the once frequent and accessible LX busses are now clogged with students — whereas students hoping to go back to Cook and Douglass campuses on the REXLs are nearly fighting for their lives to get home.
My name is Christopher, and I’m a proud Rutgers alumnus. I was an esteemed member of the Glee Club, a dedicated student employee and football fanatic. In recent years, it has pained me to see constant controversy circling the institution I love.

Over the last several weeks, I have read point and counterpoint regarding the mock eviction notices distributed in residence halls by Students for Justice in Palestine. The notices were meant to call attention to the destruction of Palestinian homes by Israel in territory that, by all accounts, is claimed by both sides.

As the world becomes progressively globalized and complex, we have an increased responsibility to be mature and aware of what is going on.
About 2,120 years ago, travelers, warriors, pilgrims, monks and soldiers from Europe, Egypt, India, the Philippines, China and Vietnam would cross mountain ranges, vast deserts and wide seas comprising the Silk Road.

Last Sunday night, Oct. 6, Students for Justice in Palestine board members printed mock eviction notices and distributed them in residence halls at Rutgers-New Brunswick.

Rutgers University President Robert L. Barchi finally broke his silence when reached for comment for an article that was published on Oct. 4. “The Glee Club has, for 140 years, been the keeper of the Alma Mater and has, when it deemed appropriate, modified its words to reflect the nature of the student body.
"You know you go to an all women’s college when you feel like you have to constantly defend the existence of women’s colleges,” the pop culture website Buzzfeed accurately explained in a recent article entitled “29 Signs You Go to a Women’s College.” Everyone knows there are stereotypes of women’s colleges that exist.
After reading “EZPass tracking is unacceptable,” I decided to quickly search for similar articles on the Internet and was not surprised to find dozens of blogs written in the same vein. I have a big problem with that. Here’s the thing, that hacker did not discover anything new.

Where is our sense of history? Has it died, or is it being slowly bled from our collegiate experience? With a new system is in place and a corporate-style administration, the University has worked diligently to remove nonessentials from university life and eliminate redundancies through merged departments.
Just as the author of “U. students should not be overloaded with homework” is worried about the value of homework in American universities, I too was once confused about the point of “busywork.” However, I now realize homework is essential in a student’s education.
Not long ago, President Barack Obama stated in a speech to the nation that we Americans are different from the rest of the world, that in some way we are exceptional.
There were definitely times when I wanted to stop riding for the day. There was the day we left Havre De Grace, Md. for 85 continuous miles of hills that twisted and turned all the way to Washington, D.C.
Yesterday morning, I woke up and grabbed my iPhone to check Facebook just like any other day. As I looked at my news feed, I noticed that 10 of my friends posted a link to a Buzzfeed post that had compiled several racist and Islamophobic tweets regarding Nina Davuluri, the first Indian-American winner of the Miss America beauty pageant, which happened Sunday in Atlantic City, N.J.
