In October of last year, women started to come forward in solidarity to discuss the pervasive sexual assault issue in Hollywood — at first, in the form of telling their stories about Harvey Weinstein. The #MeToo movement to discuss and prevent sexual assault has continued since, not only with regard to entertainment but also perhaps most recently with regard to athletics. Recently in the news was the trial of Larry Nassar, a doctor who worked for U.S.A. Gymnastics and Michigan State University. Nassar was charged three separate times, one federal charge for child pornography and two state charges for sexual abuse. In his trail regarding the sexual abuse of female gymnasts, some of whom went to the Olympics, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina gave the floor to more than 150 victims to speak about their assault by Nassar.
Humans gain mental strength in the same way that they gain muscle strength — by consistently lifting what deliberately weighs them down. This is, of course, easier to do with physical weights since anybody can go to the gym and find dumbbells lined up in a row waiting to be lifted. Mental strength, on the other hand, can be obtained by understanding what mentally weighs you down, restricts you, limits you and choosing to lift those metaphorical dumbbells every single day.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, are vitally important for the continuing progress of humanity. For American citizens, general success in STEM fields promotes economic growth and stability — creating the basis for innovation. In the face of resurging rival sovereign powers, such as China and Russia, innovation with regard to STEM may very well play a big part in determining the future of the United States on the world stage. Considering the aforementioned, it is safe to say that we need our best and brightest American students studying subjects in STEM fields. It is the case that STEM majors are becoming increasingly popular among college students, but while STEM fields become more and more widely studied each year, the opposite is the case for the humanities.
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.

Over the next few decades, Rutgers will unfold $100 million in new and improved facilities for its athletes.

The Center for Counseling, Alcohol and Other Drug Assistance Program and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its “meso practice” model, a program created to expand discussions of mental health across campus. Also referred to as “community-based counseling,” the meso practice is a marriage between individual and community health at large, said Annmarie Wacha-Montes, assistant director for Community Based Services at CAPS. The program is a more inclusive, more diversified approach to mental health and wellness.
After the recent election of President Donald J. Trump, a lot of citizens have begun to more actively question the two-party political system within the United States. The Democrats and Republicans are out for blood, disregarding their main purpose, to serve the American people. I write today in hopes to enlighten all readers that reforming the Constitution and the political system of the United States does not mean the end of our country.
If you are familiar with Rutgers University’s politically conservative organizations, you may have heard of their grievances with the University in general for being too liberal and having overtly Left-leaning biases or agendas. They have worked to share their worries with an active (and sometimes offensive) Facebook presence, but their latest Right-wing passion project is to revive The Centurion, a self-proclaimed conservative news outlet on campus. I fully support the idea of clearly labeled partisan writing, and people on all ends of the political spectrum should actively aim to use their freedom of the press to share their ideas.
Like geological timescales, it is rarely the case that significant historical and societal changes are intelligible during the time they take place. But it seems as though it is no secret that we are presently riding the wake of a relatively new and consequential movement — #MeToo. The #MeToo movement was, at its foundation, created to ensure that survivors of sexual assault and harassment, especially involving figures of power, know they are not alone in their struggles. By shedding light on this subject — one which was previously largely ignored — society may be able to take steps toward at least significantly lessening the prevalence of sexual assault in our culture today, but this requires us to tread carefully.
