Question: “I understand there are resources to help you practice interviewing for a job, but what are they? Do I need to make an appointment at University Career Services to go over interviewing? Are there other things that I can do without having to come into the office?” asked Marc, a sophomore.
Let’s talk about sex, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things it could be.
Imagine a world in which you could choose the characteristics of your child--from eye or hair color, to the degree of his or her intelligence.
Never in my life have I imagined that people
washed sidewalks the way they washed dishes. When I arrived in Hong Kong, the
first thing I noticed was how well-kept public spaces were, from the subway
system to the shopping malls.
As a first year, I came into Rutgers knowing that I was passionate about social justice, but I did not necessarily have the vocabulary and resources to articulate my beliefs.
Ferguson. Staten Island. Chicago. Since August 2014,
American’s relationship with black people has been tensioned to say the least.
The deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner sparked a cataclysmic awakening of
the mind for the entire nation.
What is the appeal of greek life? Forty-three of the 50 largest corporations are headed by former members of fraternities or sororities, and 85 percent of Fortune 500 lead executives were part of the greek system in college. Statistically speaking, joining a greek organization is the key to success.
A few Fridays ago I left Alexander Library at midnight. As I called an Uber, I couldn’t help but wonder why I felt it was necessary to take a cab. Clearly there were buses still running, but the masses outside of the College Avenue Student Center, some drunk, proved too hectic and too rowdy for my liking. Reluctantly, I paid for the Uber and made it to my dorm unbothered.
Let’s get real. It’s the 21st century, and if you’re not using some type of social media, you are living under a rock. A huge, dense blindfolding rock. Even if you have been living under said rock, the words "Facebook" or "Twitter" had to have gotten thrown around in conversation at least once within the past five years. Social networks are used to connect people all around the world.
When William D. Cohen of the New York Times asked Jim Goetz, partner at Sequoia Capital venture capitalist firm, why he chose to invest in Yik Yak, he responded, “Yik Yak has tapped our desire to connect authentically with those around us.
This past January, the U.S. Court of Appeals heard the oral argument for the Hassan v. City of New York case. What makes this case so special is that it has been the first case to ever challenge the New York City Police Department Muslim Surveillance Program. The United States National Security Agency controversy left America reeling — in June 2013, allegations arose that the NSA had been spying on millions of Americans every day through tapping of telecommunications networks (computer networks, telephones, the Internet, etc.) with the help of major companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Yahoo and Microsoft.
This week is Islam Awareness week at the University, hosted and run by the Rutgers University Muslim Student Association (RUMSA). Islam Awareness week seeks to educate non-Muslims about Islam, since most non-Muslims don't know much about the religion or its people. And some of what they do know is shaped by media that often, though not always, portray Muslims in a negative light. Although I've seen Islam Awareness week take place in front of Brower every year I've been at the University, I never actually went to any events hosted by RUMSA.
Scene after scene of potentially fatal car crashes are shown in the recently released AAA foundation video, which depicts several teenagers driving and their actions seconds before they get into a car accident.
Since the April 2 online publication of a news article titled, “Man becomes trapped in ditch after cutting through between fraternity homes,” it has become more than clear that a considerable portion of University students do not read past the headlines of our stories.
“I hear a lot about networking and that getting a job is
more about whom you know versus what you know.
With the thousands of students that attend Rutgers University, you can only imagine the amount of talent that is brewing in the Hub City. When we think of Rutgers talent, the first thing that may come to mind are athletes or famous celebrities that are known for being birthed from Rutgers. Yet, there are thousands of Rutgers rising stars that we should keep on our radar. There is no doubt that we will be hearing about them on TV or seeing their star on the Walk of Fame. Here are just a few Rutgers’ underrated rising stars.
Generally speaking, transgender identification is rarely discussed at the University. Throughout our lecture halls, undergraduate courses often ignore discussions on transgender lived experiences. Indeed, transgender pedagogy often remains missing from the classroom, as theories on gender identity are rarely discussed during in-class readings, and many classrooms avoid critiques of sociocultural cissexism and transphobia.
This morning, all my senses are submerged in color: heaps of bananas, apples, yams — organized with intention.
I have a question for the general Rutgers population: How many of you able-bodied folk have walked around New Brunswick? I do not mean the walk to Chipotle in downtown New Brunswick or to your favorite fraternity house right off of College Avenue. I am referring to the actual New Brunswick, the barrio, with the Dominican hair salons, the small (but, often crowded) homes and the bodegas on every street corner.
There’s a gleeful, savage kind of backlash to women suing for discrimination. Hundreds of social media followers curl up on their couches in hungry anticipation, fingers itching over their keyboards, sniffing for the first sign of blood. Ellen Pao’s recent allegations against her former employer, venture capitalist firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, are no exception.
