Although the issue of on-campus sexual assault is finally receiving the attention it deserves, it remains a topic that many are still hesitant to acknowledge, let alone actively confront. This is understandable, considering that recognizing those individuals, the majority of whom are women, whom are sexually assaulted and victimized — stripped of control, power and dignity — is a hard fact to realize. The oft-cited and harrowing statistic from the U.S. Department of Justice is that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted while in college.
Since the 2010 incorporation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into U.S. legislature, the population of individuals who can obtain affordable health care has expanded. Combine this policy change with the growing cultural and linguistic diversity in many areas of the U.S. and we have the existing cultural and language barrier in modern health care becoming even more of a medical, legal and financial burden.
Machine washers and dryers on the Rutgers University campuses are wasteful in terms of energy and water consumption. There is an eco-friendly manner to approach this problem, which can ultimately cut down on University costs. Using cold water instead of warm and hot water and utilizing drying racks instead of machine drying will not only help the environment, but it will save money too.
Regrettably, ocular deficiencies are not found uniformly across the population. Low-income, uninsured and minority groups tend to be at a higher risk for suffering from undiagnosed and uncorrected ocular disease.

When people struggle financially, it can be hard for them to satisfy basic necessities. Resources like food in particular can take up most of a struggling family’s weekly income. Thankfully, there are food banks, which provide free food for those in need. People can just stop by and pick up what they need. Wouldn't it be nice to have a medical supply bank like we have food banks?
Keller's article shows how polarized politics have become. Instead of offering arguments and counter arguments to refute charges made against the former Secretary of State (Hillary Clinton), Keller chooses to portray the issue as mud slinging and trash talking. This only helps keep us warring with one another.
Spring is an ideal time to get involved in the University community. Many organizations are holding elections, auditions or interviews to choose their next leaders and right now, you have the opportunity to get involved with your student government, the Rutgers University Student Assembly (RUSA)!
Last week, Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress. The day after, Sara Zayed reacted to his speech.
Hillary Clinton’s role in the Benghazi attack has been fuel for Republican vitriol for over two years. During the congressional hearing, Republicans and their right friends were trying to keep the in the public’s mind the Benghazi attack and the role Hillary Clinton played, stemming from their fear that Clinton will be the Democratic nominee and will go onto defeat a Republican challenger.
Sara Zayed voices real concerns about Israel’s treatment of Palestine. However, while those concerns need to be addressed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s issue is with real and present danger of the development of weapons grade nuclear material by Iran.
While Sara Zayed is quick to criticize Speaker John Boehner and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for their supposed “break of protocol," she forgets that former Speakers have conducted such breaches before. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Syria to meet with President Bashar al-Assad, despite the Bush administration’s strong protests, and claimed that President Assad was willing to negotiate.
On the first day of class each semester, I write my first name on the board: Tadzio. Then, because it’s unusual, I explain how it's pronounced, and drill my students in saying it out loud. I use their first names when addressing them, and I expect they’ll use mine when addressing me.
Hillary Rodham Clinton may be gearing up for a presidential run in 2016, but despite all the media buzz surrounding her candidacy, even the most politically active students do not actually know much about her career. In December, we conducted an unscientific survey on awareness of and youth attitudes toward Secretary Clinton as part of an Aresty project conducted under the supervision of Ruth B. Mandel.

The average price of a prom dress can run up to $170, but girls can find high quality dresses for just $20 at Our Fairy Godmother events set to begin this month.
As faculty, including teaching assistants and graduate assistants, have been negotiating their contract, which expired in August, they have begun to raise the question that the Union of Rutgers Administrators brought up after the 2010 salary freeze: has the administration “got ethics?” You may have seen “Reclaim Rutgers” signs hanging up on faculty doors. Maybe you have seen the American Association of University Professors and the American Federation of Teachers rallying or tabling at the campus center.
After listening to Rutgers University Student Assembly Parliamentarian Samuel Clark present on the bill that would grant RUSA executive board members a stipend for their dedication, I would like to apologize for the offense I caused and correct my misconceptions. Last Thursday, I wrote an article falsely accusing RUSA members of neglecting their responsibilities and trying to take funds intended to help students.
Rutgers is getting more selective! I wonder if I would be accepted now? I graduated from Livingston College in 1976 after serving in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1975. I wonder how many students are aware of the Vietnam War Memorial outside Scott Hall? I wonder how many of that group stop and view the names on the Memorial?
When advocating for his bill that would pay certain members of RUSA, Sam Clark, who serves as RUSA's parliamentarian, argued that money for his proposal would not come from student fees and would not negatively affect other student organizations.
Rutgers requires that I install spyware on my personal computer that will allow an outside company to watch me through my webcam, record my knuckles, photograph my student ID including my RUID number and view my files as I use my computer to take an online exam.
