I graduated from Rutgers in 1967. I am writing to comment about what happened at Milo Yiannopoulos’s recent speech.My first draft of this letter referred to what I learned about constitutional law, and specifically about freedom of speech, from Dr. Stanley Friedelbaum at Rutgers. But I realized that that would be pointless.
Dear Editor:I am black. I am a feminist. This means that I fall into the category of people who are targeted by Milo Yiannopoulous's bigoted rhetoric. Although I am seriously tired of addressing flashy racists with corny hair (this is especially true in light of Trump), I will say just one thing.
Dear Editor,In her thoughtful summary of using “politically correct” vernacular on campus, Brittany Gibson presents a nuanced picture of the debate taking place at colleges across the United States in her article, "Rutgers students debate benefits, issues with political correctness," on Jan. 26.
Dear Editor,Quick catchup in case you didn’t read the news last week, Rutgers students can now aspire to buy alcohol in High Point Solutions Stadium, all in the good name of funding on-campus psychiatric services.
Love Canal is a section of Niagara Falls, New York, where toxic chemicals were legally dumped and people suffered as a result. I thought that the situation in Love Canal ended in the 1970s. It seems like eons ago.
I was happy to see the Targum publish an op-ed by an alumna on the cruelty and ineffectiveness of experiments on animals, including at Rutgers.
An Open Letter to Dr. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg:Do you remember when a group of activist hedge fund managers successfully waged a brutal coup over at Olive Garden, toppling its longtime CEO Clarence Otis for his appalling crimes against Italian cuisine, including fried lasagna fritta and "Tuscan" hummus?
“In May of this year, I went on a hunger strike for 45 days in front of the White House and the United Nations,” Simon Deng told me on Monday, Nov.
It is interesting that the faculty and students are so eager to push for President Obama as the commencement speaker for Rutgers 250th class. Not two years ago, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was invited to speak at commencement, but after faculty and student protests, she withdrew.
Next year and for the next four years to come, there will be an empty seat here at Rutgers. This past Thursday, Ezra Schwartz, was shot down by a Palestinian gunman when he was sitting in traffic. An 18-year-old boy from Sharon, Massachusetts, Ezra planned to attend the Rutgers Business School next fall, but was spending a gap year in Israel at the Ashreinu Yeshiva in Beit Shemesh, a city North of Jerusalem.
Why must Rutgers always snatch defeat from the jaws of victory? We are used to scandals involving football (remember Pernetti and Rice? Floodgate? The five players arrested for assault?). Similarly, we have grown accustomed to investigative reports confirming what we all know: The engine for runaway tuition is an outlandishly inflated and unaccountable upper administration (remember the 2007 N.J. state report of "Vulnerable to Abuse" that included Rutgers? Millions in fraudulent billing of Medicare by the medical school? An affair and drunk driving by Rutgers' previous president?)
Whales are a vital part of our ecosystem and harming their population has had a snowball effect on our environment.
Starbucks Coffee's removal of Christmas decorations from their cups, making them plain red and the #MerryChristmasStarbucks campaign, has caused a lot of controversy.
Rutgers University begins today the yearlong celebrations that will culminate next year in the 250th anniversary of the University’s founding in 1766 in New Brunswick. Throughout the next 12 months, special events and programs will examine and celebrate the University’s revolutionary pursuit of teaching, research and service.
I'm writing about Radcliffe Bent's recent opinion piece "Rutgers expectations, standards are dumb, you are proof." It was, quite frankly, an awful read. Now, I know that opinions are opinions, and my opinion might be dumb. I may be dumb, but do you have to tell me "you are dumb" three times in the space of a minute?
The demise of the “student” must surely be near when education is now defined as a “purchase.” Indeed, this definition is merely a signpost of the problem's deeper roots.
To Our Survivors: Last week, advocates were honored to be present in serving University students and survivors as we viewed an important documentary, "The Hunting Ground," which discusses sexual assault and rape culture on college campuses.
Professor Ward’s comments in the Sept. 25 Daily Targum shocked me. His opinions article started out mistaken, and ended up horrible.
If the average Rutgers student was to be accused of plagiarizing a paper for a class, he or she would be subjected to Rutgers’ plagiarism policy: “They could be suspended from the University for a minimum of one semester with the notation of ‘academic disciplinary suspension’ permanently placed on their transcript, not to mention failing the class and having to start all over again.” A University investigation of the student would take place and if found guilty, said student would face the consequences.
A common theme that emerges from conversations I’ve had with Rutgers students, of all faiths, is a certain feeling of marginalization. Monotheistic or otherwise, daily interactions with professors and students leave believers feeling as though they comprise only a small sliver of the Rutgers pie that practices their faith.
