MEHTA: Switch to digital LSAT will exacerbate inequities, lacks foresight

(09/09/19 4:07am)

When Lori Laughlin became the face of a college admissions scandal in March, America felt some sense of justice. She had bribed USC recruiters $500,000 to admit her daughters into their school, outwardly committing the crime that most wealthy parents avoid by simply donating buildings and sports stadiums to their children’s institutions. 

SURIANO: Britian's Brexit breaks political system, process

(09/09/19 4:13am)

In the wake of the 2016 election and the subsequent three years of American politics, many have turned a jealous eye toward more polished countries such as Canada, France or Britain. In recent months, the Canadian government has been rocked with scandal, the streets of Paris were paralyzed with the so-called “yellow vest” protest and now finally our closest ally, Britain, has been trapped by the gordian knot of Brexit. 

Leyzerovych: National scandal: Reflections on Trump’s immigration policies, nation’s sovereignty

(09/03/19 4:00am)

For the past eight years I have been continuously bombarded — but in all truth I have bombarded myself out of sheer curiosity and a bit of philosophical masochism — with a hail of sociocultural conundrums regarding my existence as an immigrant in modern America. 

EDITORIAL: Insensitive tuition increase reflects U.'s decline

(05/04/19 1:23am)

We cannot simply withdraw into a dark age of disconnection and disengagement. We are no longer just the beneficiaries of the generations before us waiting for a seat at the table, and we are no longer mere bystanders to the political discourse in this country. We are members of the Rutgers community, a microcosm of the world in which we cannot blindly inherit the corrosive trends of our declining direction. 

JAWED: All-nighters for finals are counterproductive

(05/04/19 1:26am)

Pulling all-nighters before final exams seems like the logical thing to do. At least in my experience. I keep hearing that sleep is important, but when push comes to shove the night before the exam and I feel unprepared, sleeping is the last thing on my mind. It just makes more sense to stay up, cram and walk into the exam knowing that I at least covered everything even if I barely got any sleep. 

GUVERCIN: Social media influencers need to promote positive change

(05/04/19 1:25am)

YouTube. Twitter. Instagram. Snapchat. Facebook. All of these platforms have birthed a wave of socially-integrated, extremely rich, young and trendy group of people who widely self-identify as “influencers.” These people regularly post videos, pictures, tweets, commercials, brand deals and more from which they are able to make a large profit as they build their way up the social ladder. 

O'BRIEN: Colleges can salvage Enlightenment ideas

(05/02/19 4:00am)

After writing dozens of articles for this newspaper over the last three years, this will be my final column. I have written about everything from the pressing need for municipal zoning reform in major cities to how we can talk to each other about politics constructively. I am, of course, flushed with nostalgia for the memories I have made here at Rutgers and the many friends I will leave behind. 

NUNDA: High costs of sleep aids take advantage of issue

(05/02/19 4:00am)

We have all heard the same tips for falling asleep from our doctors — decrease technology use before bed, do not consume sugary drinks at night and try to exercise during the day so you tire yourself out. For those of us that suffer from a little more extreme cases of insomnia, we know it takes a few further steps than a couple of nighttime hacks to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. 

OLAYEMI: We should recognize visible disparaties in policing of social life

(05/02/19 4:00am)

We are finally at the eagerly anticipated period of the academic year when it looks like and feels like springtime. No longer are we scurrying in and out of our rooms, off and on buses, avoiding any extra time out of the comfort of our living spaces because it is just too cold to be out and about doing anything aside from going to class and getting food.
