As a first-year student who enjoys hours of watching political videos happening on college campuses all across the United States, I admit I could not wait to see what Rutgers would have to offer in terms of political activism on campus. With the hotly contested midterm elections coming soon, I thought I may see Republicans and Democrats walking with their usual signs wanting to convince me to vote for one or the other, and I awaited the day I could have a good debate with both sides.
For 50 years, Rutgers has been offering students financial help through the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF), and this week the University is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the program by hosting a commemoration ceremony, TED talks from EOF alumni and a celebration dinner. The fund exists to provide financial aid and other forms of support, such as counseling, tutoring and developmental coursework to students who come from backgrounds with educational or economic disadvantages.
Rutgers plays nine Big Ten games a year. This leaves three places on its 12 game schedule for non-conference games. Rutgers has decided to play these non-conference games against local schools. I think that this is a good idea. There is more interest in a game against a school the fans have heard of, and the local schools are familiar to Rutgers fans. Also, all of the schools selected, except one, are good choices. But, that one is so odd that it deserves mention.
The Rutgers women's soccer team begins its final stretch of its schedule this week as it hosts Northwestern and Illinois.

A new game developed by Dice is on the way, and you know what that means: controversy. Battlefield V is slated to release Nov. 20 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game is being crafted in traditional Battlefield style. Big destructible maps, first person shooter combat, a large in-game player count, vehicles and objective based gameplay are signature features of Battlefield games, including this new one. Battlefield V is set in World War II, with the bulk of the presentation set in the western front of the war. One may think, “A Battlefield game taking place in World War II? That sounds amazing!” Not entirely.
History textbooks are essential to education and are seen as the main source of context that will provide students with the background information they need on specific periods and events in history. I have no issue with history textbooks, but my issue is with the context within the textbooks, or the lack of context. I believe the United States currently has a clear majority of historically-challenged students, which is concerning when you consider the fact that these students will hold moral, political and ethical beliefs in the future with little knowledge of actual history.
The University’s Strategic Plan for “the new Rutgers” calls for an incremental increase in international and out-of-state students. As of right now, the University has the lowest number of out-of-state students in the Big Ten at approximately 18 percent. The plan is to gradually increase this number in the next few years until we reach the goal of 25 percent out-of-state students.
