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.
Thank you to Jose Sanchez for his thoughts on faith and socialism. Indeed, as he insists, they need not be in contradiction. In fact, nothing in Christianity needs to be in contradiction with anything, which is authentically good and true.
Edward Romano, a School of Arts and Sciences senior majoring in history and political science, died suddenly on Sept. 30. He was beloved by fellow students, faculty and staff in both departments, along with the Eagleton Institute of Politics, history club, Rutgers University Democrats and a variety of other groups. Ed got involved — that’s what he did.
Wow, it is hard to know where to begin with the piece written by Mr. Jonathan Finnerty.Laden with inaccuracy — the facts being too rich for his taste — the article published on Friday is a severely misinformed, hardly philosophical rant. Though there is much I could write, I will reduce my comments to two simple points.
Unfortunately, in the last century the narrative of Jewish-Muslim relations has been marred by episodes of violence and hate. Ignored by many, however, is that both religions derive from the same source: Abrahamic monotheism. Therefore Judaism and Islam are not related just functionally — as are all faiths — but share a mutual history, hence the two religions need not to be seen as adversaries but more like siblings, the spiritual children of Ishmael (Muslims) and Isaac (Jews).
To the Rutgers Community:My grandfather, Antonio, left Naples for Newark in 1902. He arrived on Garside Street with $20 and determination.
Did you know that of the 57,080 individuals that call New Brunswick home, 26 percent identify as Mexican? According to restauranteur Andrew Schiff, that means that within the next 30 days, there will be about 14,840 Mexican New Brunswick residents who will FINALLY be able to get their hands on the “true flavors” of “real Mexican food” in New Brunswick.
After reading the Sept. 15 article on the new taco restaurant coming to New Brunswick, I felt compelled to respond. For at least 20 years now, New Brunswick has been the home to “authentic” Mexican restaurants owned and operated by residents from the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Puebla.
Dear current Rutgers students, I hope that in this letter I speak for most loyal daughter and sons.
