GIBSON: Students should demand high standards for next RUSA president

The school year is almost over and with that comes the civic duty to elect next year’s student body president. The Rutgers University Student Assembly (RUSA) presidential debate is this Thursday and I want to know what I should be looking for in my next president, and there was no one better to consult than current RUSA President Evan Covello.

GIBSON: University core curriculum is most likely necessary evil

At last week’s RUSA meeting, University Chancellor Debasish Dutta lectured about the current state of University affairs and his own academic and professional background, but what I found most interesting was the question he answered afterward about the core curriculum. A student asked if STEM students or others with credit-heavy majors should be subjected to the common core.

GIBSON: New publication may have wrong intentions

If you are familiar with Rutgers University’s politically conservative organizations, you may have heard of their grievances with the University in general for being too liberal and having overtly Left-leaning biases or agendas. They have worked to share their worries with an active (and sometimes offensive) Facebook presence, but their latest Right-wing passion project is to revive The Centurion, a self-proclaimed conservative news outlet on campus. I fully support the idea of clearly labeled partisan writing, and people on all ends of the political spectrum should actively aim to use their freedom of the press to share their ideas.

GIBSON: West Ham’s upswing will hopefully keep up

West Ham United isn’t the most popular club in the top-flight of English football and seldom garners attention from the small number of international soccer fans in the States. But if you’re from Essex or the East End, like I am, then you likely support the Hammers and have been following this season’s triumphs and laments weekly. The season has been so mixed in terms of results and performances that it’s difficult to assess West Ham’s capabilities and how long the team’s new found success will take them.

Local DJs spin attention toward Hurricane Harvey victims

This Saturday, Hub City’s DJ-Producer collective will extend its "neighborly watch" to the victims of Hurricane Harvey with a benefit show at NJ Skateshop. Neighborhood Watch, the only music showcase series that partners with local businesses in New Brunswick, will be partnering with Boards for Bros at this Saturday’s free show. They will be collecting cash donations and used skateboarding gear to send to Southside Skatepark in Houston, Texas. “Boards for Bros is an organization that gets skateboards that are damaged or broken, fixes those skateboards, refurbishes them and then gives them to inner-city and urban areas,” said Derrick Braxton, a Neighborhood Watch co-organizer.

Classes are coming to an end, the sun is coming out, new albums are being released, and for those of us on the Eats Coast those are all signs that point to summer music festival Governors Ball. The outdoor music festival on Randall’s Island in New York City will be sounding a carefully curated blend of beats, genres and vibes in high-octane, high-volume three-day event.

Baauer brings energy to new heights at 'Beats on the Banks'

Last Friday night, RUPA’s Beats on the Bank set a new standard for high energy. Electric dance music (EDM) artists 3LAU and Baauer performed at the College Avenue Gymnasium for a near-sold out show, getting students on their feet and heads out of books for a night of techno-tranced drum and bass. Baauer is best know for his 2013 hit “Harlem Shake,” a track that went virtual with homemade music videos.
