All too often, diversity is used as a monolithic, all-encompassing term, to quantify what happens when people from different backgrounds interact with one another.Looking back on this semester, and the school year in general, Rutgers has used its diversity factor as the answer to almost every question.
Bud Light recently came under fire for a poorly worded slogan displayed on their beer bottles. As part of the “#UpForWhatever” campaign, the brewing company Anheuser-Busch released a slogan on beer bottles reading, “Perfect beer for removing ‘no’ from your vocabulary for the night.” Social media and news outlets alike demonized the company for the insinuation of rape the slogan carries.
Ferguson was the tipping point. Baltimore is the point of despair. For nearly a year now, race relations in America have been bursting at the seams while individuals work to combat police brutality.
It happens every so often. Most of the time you see it on the weekend. Other times it’s during the middle of the week. But you always notice it when Rutgers gets fancy. Open House weekend and Rutgers Day are prime examples of the almost code-switch-like shift that occurs when company comes to town.
Douglass College was founded as a women’s institution meant to compliment Rutgers College: The relationship between the two was intended to model the partnership between Barnard and Columbia. Yet as the years progressed, a series of changes were enacted that caused both programs to stray immensely from the original model.
In any political blunder, there is always a scapegoat. For better or for worse, one person is usually burdened with the blame for a failure. Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice are two women all too familiar with this concept. Both women served as secretary of state, a high-ranking government position inherently concerned with foreign affairs.
How do you know when to intervene in a situation? Sometimes the answer is trivial and clear as day. If a student drops their ID on the bus, do you say something or act like you didn’t see it? Most people would likely speak up. But what if you see a police officer assaulting a citizen — do you try to involve yourself physically? Do you walk away? Or do you take out your phone and film it? The options are endless and nothing short of confusing.
E-cigarettes are all about the aesthetic. They blow whiter smoke than traditional cigarettes. They’re incredibly portable since they’re packaged as a single pen as opposed to sold in a pack. They come in different flavors and are available for purchase as starter packs that come with chargers and other accessories. Similarly, they don’t give off the same odor as traditional cigarette smoke, meaning people can use them everywhere. Here at Rutgers, students smoke e-cigarettes on the bus, in classrooms and in the dining halls.
Running a 5k is nothing like running a marathon, and playing in the American Athletic Conference pales in comparison to being competitive in the Big Ten.
College is a business. For current and prospective students, faculty and staff as well as the administration, managing the University and its image is a gargantuan balancing act.
President Obama has called for the end to “conversion therapies for gay and transgender youth.” His announcement trails after the death of transgender teenager Leelah Alcorn.
The bus system is everyone’s foremost complaint about the University. From being packed like sardines on the F to waiting up to half an hour for an H to arrive, it’s blatantly obvious that the system is flawed.
Representation is here — you are now an emoji.
Social events for greek life have been suspended for the remainder of the semester. The ban is more of a preemptive strike, issued by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs before other school officials become involved with the situation.
Good satire brings attention to an issue. It makes you think about injustice, analyze a moral wrongdoing and confront ethical issues. Yet, the line between amusing and offensive is often paper thin — so much so that it is often difficult to distinguish when that line has been crossed. In the April Fool’s edition of The Medium, an article entitled, “Men’s basketball to begin controversial but effective recruiting regiment,” was featured on the mock sports page
It is election season once again and the Rutgers University Student Assembly (RUSA) has begun campaigning for their next executive board.
Dear Gentlepeople of Rutgers, the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is officially over. For almost five days, University services were fundamentally non-existent both on and off-campus. Access to Sakai, ecollege and other web platforms were completely halted or worked intermittently at best. This is the third time such an attack has taken place this school year alone.
Drinking in college is a right of passage. Every weekend, Thursday through Saturday, students line the streets of New Brunswick waiting to get into Knight Club or Olde Queens, where they party into the wee hours of the morning. Most of these students are 21 or up, but as expected, there are always a few stragglers using fake IDs, someone else’s ID or their own, hoping the bouncer will ignore the fact that they’re underage.
Defining a generation is used tactically to categorize different groups of people within the greater American context. First there was the "Greatest Generation," followed by the Baby Boomers and then Generations X, Y (millennials) and Z. It is necessary to distinguish between these groups of individuals because their contributions to society vary. But it is difficult to choose specifically where to draw the lines between generations for a number of reasons.
America embraces the concept of having women on money, just not money that gets used everyday. The one, five and twenty dollar bills are used so often that you rarely stop and look at the people on the bill. But the organizers of Women on 20 (W20) took a look and thought it's time to make some changes — and who wouldn’t agree? The Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea dollar coins exist, but you’re unlikely to see or use them unless a ticket machine spits them out at you as change.
