Both overseas and nationally, we see violence and prejudice against Jews across the globe rising in number every year — with recent events like Charlie Hebdo and Hypercacher. We are seeing a time where people are once again afraid to be kippah-clad on the streets of Paris and Rome. However on a more insular and personal level, Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) measures are right on our doorsteps, with proposals being put to vote through the student government of Princeton University as we speak.
It may seem as if the issue of tuition does not directly correspond to the name of our group. After all, what is the relationship between tuition and shared governance?
She’s finally done it! Former First Lady of the United States, Senator of New York, U.S. Secretary of State and overwhelming favorite Democratic contender Hillary Clinton has finally thrown her hat into the ring for the 2016 Presidential Election. As Clinton transitions to campaign mode, it is now more imperative than ever for her supporters to create a strong and cohesive base as well as educate others on her vision for a brighter America. The new student-run club, “Rutgers for Hillary,” is poised for just that task.
Take a look at a map of the globe tacked onto the wall of your nearest lecture hall, or easier yet — pull out your smart phone, open your Google Maps app and zoom out all the way until the world fits neatly on your snazzy, maybe cracked, HD screen.
The weather has finally broken, and students, faculty and staff eagerly seek any excuse to be outside and shake off the last remnants of cabin fever. Unfortunately, along with the joy brought by the sun’s warmth, comes the annual barrage of reminders that my freedom and security are limited, simply because I am a woman.
Last week, I witnessed our greek community’s march against sexual assault and sexual violence. I went because I care. I went because I am a victim of sexual assault at Rutgers. I went because I know people who are also victims. But what I saw was not what I had hoped for.
After months of navigating our University’s administration, Rutgers Fossil Fuel Divestment has at last secured a place on the agenda of the Board of Governors and Board of Trustees Joint Committee on Investments.
Let me begin by stating that I appreciate The Daily Targum's boldness in publishing the article titled, “Rutgers student criticizes University after sexual assault,” and bringing attention to an issue that is not unique to our college campus. I can say that most of the issues I have with this article are not technically based on the writing skills or point of view expressed in the article, but more strictly based on the facts of the case and the realities of our University policies.
My roommate and I occupy two single bedrooms in our apartment on Hamilton Street. Toward the end of September, my roommate was compelled by a company called IDT Energy to sign up for its “money-saving” electricity and gas supplying service. The problem — there is no money saving.
About two weeks ago I saw a line of people waiting to get a $13 tattoo from Revolver Tattoo, a tattoo parlor fairly close to the New Brunswick campus.
The University is saying their goodbyes to Cheryl Wilson, a staff member who has forever changed student life and student involvement on campus. Her professional accolades go on and on, from serving as the Director of Student Involvement and Leadership since 1999 to being published in ESSCENCE Magazine. In between she has led legendary organizations and initiatives, such as the Black Alumnae Network, and created a one-of-a kind Jazz and Java Multicultural Poetry Night.
Great empires like Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, the Mayans, the Romans and the Ottomans eventually fell after feeling the limits of growth and indulgence available to man. After each one fell, another one quickly grew from the ashes of the last and transitions were mostly regional. The problem today is that human growth encompasses the entire globe, not just a region or continent, and we are all simultaneously making the same mistake.
My entire four years at the University have been a struggle, because I was not receiving proper health care: I didn't tell my doctor all my mental illness symptoms out of embarrassment. But when I finally opened up, my psychiatrist realized what I had. I have rapid cycling bipolar disorder with psychotic features, not depression, which is what I was previously diagnosed with, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which we've known since I was 18.
In an economy increasingly built upon innovation, the most important skill you can sell is your knowledge. That’s why higher education is, more than ever, the surest ticket to the middle class. But just when it’s never been more important, it’s also never been more expensive. The average undergrad who borrows to pay for college ends up graduating with about $28,000 in student loan debt.
A week ago a petition surfaced on change.org, titled “Keep The Rutgers Rock Wall Open.” The petition states that the Rock Climbing wall is going to be taken down by Rutgers Recreation and Athletic Department.
On March 3, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, addressed a joint session of Congress on Iran’s nuclear program.
March 3 is International Sex Worker Rights Day, an important day to honor the legacy of sex worker activists past and remember how much further we as a community must go to secure our rights. The tradition first began in 2001 when over fifty thousand sex workers in a union in Calcutta, India organized a festival to celebrate each other’s struggles and achievements made in the community.
Students at Rutgers University are fortunate to have numerous opportunities to travel abroad, whether for longer periods of study, or shorter service-learning based trips.
When Fifty Shades of Grey was first released, so many people were excited by the idea of an erotic novel tailored for women. Many found the novel extremely sexually appealing without recognizing that there is a serious problem with Christian and Ana's sexual relationship. Christian Grey and Ana seem to fall in “love” in the novel, but Christian’s feelings are unclear. What is clear is that he loves violent sex.
When I read of three-parent in vitro fertilization (“IVF”), or any other form of reproductive technology, I shake my head.
