The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a PWI, which means this school is a Predominantly White Institution. It is not hard to conclude that the majority of the students at UW-Madison identify as being white.
Critics of the controversial Gillette razor commercial, which discusses toxic masculinity and the importance of teaching children empathy, equality and strength, claim the advertisement is anti-men.
As the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been a pioneer advocating for racial justice, tuition-free public universities, healthcare for all, abolishing ICE and mass mobilization against climate change. She is a bold example of what a new Democratic Party might look like.
Madison is unique in the fact that it has a history of youth activism and engagement with politics. There are so many opportunities afforded to students and young people that help them get involved in the political process, and I’m lucky that I have been able to take part in them and help push for change.
It goes without saying that college is a balancing act. Students have to cram classes, coursework, jobs or internships, extracurriculars and some semblance of a social life into a 24/7 schedule. For most, it’s ultimately manageable, but nonetheless a massive headache.
The greatest fear of the Ancient Roman government for much of its existence was popular revolt. To keep the people docile and controlled, the Roman government would provide entertainment in the form of gladiatorial combat and rations of free bread. This solution, commonly referred to as the “bread and circuses” tactic, distracted the public from a pressing sense of civic duty.
As temperatures continue to drop in Madison, students seek warmth from harsh Midwest weather conditions, unsurprisingly, in winter jackets. For many students this means wearing the same jacket they’ve had since high school, for others it means buying their first winter jackets and for some it’s a chance to purchase a really expensive jacket that, knowingly or not, serves as a visual reminder of their privilege at this university.
Syllabus week — the best time of the semester for many students who welcome the opportunity to zone out in lecture, skip discussion and go out without any next-day consequences.
A couple weeks ago, an editor from Calvin College in Michigan called me hoping to get my thoughts on student journalists working in this era of media distrust. We talked about it for several minutes — how our office has taken extra safety measures in the wake of what our government says about news media, how our content falls under extra critical eyes.
An epidemic has rampaged through every nook and cranny of American dialogue, with no sign of ceasing its havoc upon public discourse. Indeed, the malevolent word ‘like’ has infiltrated every other sentence spoken by young adults in today’s new era of conversation, and I am merely here to shine a beacon of awareness upon the matter, not to unwield a vitriolic slew of insults and jeers at those who misuse the filler word. Full disclaimer: in no manner am I attempting to portray myself as ‘woke,’ considering that I once pitchforked these speech irregularities into my daily linguistic habits, far more than those who presently do. And yes, I am fully cognizant that I sound similar to a Gen Xer ripping on every facet of millennials and younger generations, but there is some substance to this argument.
Instead of empowering survivors and holding perpetrators accountable, the proposed Title IX changes introduced by the Department of Education in November 2018 create additional obstacles in an already fraught process.
If you’re a Democrat, a progressive, a moderate Republican, a centrist or even just somewhat liberal, chances are you’re not too fond of the job President Donald Trump has been doing since the beginning of 2017.
I have already written about UW-Madison student voting requirements, but as I learn more, it becomes even more clear that Wisconsin’s citizens are suffering at the hands of current Republican legislators’ efforts to decrease voter turnout. After all, high voter turnout often results in a win for Democrats.
A boy living on my floor freshman year laughed as his friend called him “retarded” for missing the point to his joke.
Let’s play a game. Name all the late night TV comedians you can think of in a minute. How many were women? Just one: Samantha Bee (if she even came to mind at all).
How can our local leaders directly help those they govern? This is a question that I have heard time and time again from students in District 8.
For many people, besides perhaps Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch, the holidays are the most heavily anticipated time of the year. There have been at least 5 million songs composed about it, in fact. The snow flurries through the air, Christmas cards come in the mail from people you hardly know, matching family snowflake pajamas are donned: The holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year.
Anti-Semitism is not an issue that only bothers me. It shakes me to my core. Anti-Semitism is real and often lacks recognition of its severity in the United States, but it pervades throughout society into our daily lives. It varies from derogatory messages in memes to swastikas drawn on synagogues to violent atrocities like the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Congregation shooting that left 11 peaceful synagogue-goers dead.
