Last week, the House of Representatives quietly voted to send thousands of Rutgers students into poverty. Entitled the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the plan will both raise taxes on graduate students — in some cases tripling or quadrupling them — and force many of us to quit our jobs. As an English Ph.D. student, I can appreciate the ironic wordplay, even as I deplore the results.
In recent weeks, flyers have been pasted to the walls of buildings at Rutgers and other universities across the country that state the phrase, “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE.” These flyers appeared after a post on 4chan encouraged people with aligning views to go out on the night of Halloween and put up the flyers with the aim of provoking backlash from the “Leftist media.” In the end, the goal was to make it appear as if the media discriminates against white people to the point where they needed to defend themselves. By doing this, they assumed that people who are centrist politically would associate this assumed ideology of hatred toward white people with the Left, and therefore turn on them. All in all, it was a scheme conceived by internet trolls to rally support for far-Right activism.
Rutgers dropped a heartbreaking 78-73 contest to Florida State in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
It was sloppy and ugly in some respects, but the Scarlet Knights played their two best halves of the season so far when it mattered most. Still, Rutgers (6-1) dropped its first match of the season to a visiting Florida State (6-0), 78-73, Tuesday night as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. With the loss, the Knights move to 2-2 all-time in the annual showcase.
After a loss to No. 3 South Carolina (6-1), a win against Western Michigan (3-4), and a loss to Washington State (3-4), the Scarlet Knights (5-2) finished sixth in the Showcase held in Estero, Florida. Undefeated heading into the tournament, they emerged with two losses, but a lot of things to be proud of heading into a stretch of eight straight home games.
Over the weekend, the Rutgers women’s basketball team competed in the Gulf Coast Showcase in Estero, Florida with seven other teams. The Scarlet Knights (5-2, 0-0) went 1-2 in the tournament, with losses to No. 3 South Carolina as well as Washington State and a win against Western Michigan.
The game Tuesday is part of the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge going on this week in which teams of each conference square off against each other. Rutgers is currently 1-2 in this event, having beaten Clemson in 2014 before losing close games down to the wire against Wake Forest and Miami.
Head coach Chris Ash signed an updated contract that will keep him in Piscataway for five more years through 2022, according to NJ Advance Media. The contract replaces the five-year, $11 million deal agreed upon back in December 2015.
There are more than 500 student-run clubs and organizations offered on campus, and among these, Unplugged, the University board game club, is one dedicated solely to bringing students together to relax and play popular board games.
Before I started college, I only thought about the world outside the United States in pretty limited contexts. I was an active member of my high school’s Model United Nations club, but any debate or discourse that I engaged in about low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) had no awareness of global justice or the dynamics of institutional powers.
