When headlines detailing the harrowing situation resulting in grad student John Brady’s death plastered the internet, UW-Madison quaked.

This poem is in response to my removal from Witte Residence Hall. I was removed because of an investigative process in which University Housing is diving into how and why I make white students and students who have white friends uncomfortable. However, is it truly discomfort for their safety or discomfort because I actively work to ensure the safety and comfort of students of color, first. In other words, I hold white students accountable and ask them to educate themselves and check their privilege on a floor that upholds multiculturalism and social justice themes and values. My removal has resulted in irreparable trauma. Not only inflicted on myself, but students of color who I have had the honor of building relationships with, regardless of their involvement on the MLC.
Cast your minds back to high school, a time when we were all busy working on our college applications. We used to toil like worker ants, scurrying around to squeeze in every extracurricular we could find and grinding away to make sure we scored the best we could on every test we took.
As we walk from class to class listening to podcasts — worrying about Trump, the insurmountable damage he has inflicted on our state, and his next irreversible stunt — Ben Wikler resides on the other side of Capitol strategizing with his staff ways that this nation can defeat the most erratic, unprecedented president in history.
When the New York Times reached out to me, I had no clue what Julie Bosman, one of the writers behind The Northwestern Daily follow-up piece, was referring to. However, to understand why she sent an email to me, I spent my morning lecture looking at different news outlets in order to spell out what happened on the Northwestern campus.
Missed deadlines. Group projects gone wrong. Being late without a text. There are a lot of reasons to be irritable with one another, to lose our tempers, or to misplace our patience. This is particularly true as our already-low tolerance dwindles with each midterm, each final project assignment, and the looming break awaiting us in a few week’s time.
Scrolling through any kind of social media, one is very likely to find a post talking about relationships. It is quite a natural human obsession. After all, humans are social beings who need to be loved and cared for. One can fulfill their own emotional needs, but only for a certain duration of time and to a certain extent, after which the pursuit for love from other humans becomes a necessity.
The Wisconsin School of Business (WSB) requires bold and visionary changes in order to address the increasing injustices in our global economy. Instead of only teaching the traditional for-profit corporate business model, the business school must be proactive in developing future business leaders with the tools to solve societal challenges.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the University of Wisconsin–Madison was shaken by a series of student protests against the Vietnam War and the use of force by responding authorities. In 1967, students amassed to protest the recruiting efforts on campus of the Dow Chemical Company, which made napalm that the United States used on the battlefield. What began as peaceful civil disobedience turned violent as city police officers with riot sticks forcibly removed students from today’s Ingraham Hall. The clash involved thousands and injured dozens. And in 1970, a bomb exploded next to Sterling Hall aimed at destroying the Army Math Research Center, killing a university physics researcher. These events hardened campus relationships and emboldened a new generation of steadfast pacifists.
A racism scandal in Madison struck a national chord this week— the New York Times reported on it, CNN reported on it, Cher even offered to help.
Vaping has become a quintessential part of high school and college culture. From school bathrooms to dorm rooms, students vape. With the new demand, the global market estimates that the vaping industry is worth approximately 19 billion dollars, and the number of vapers has been increasing rapidly — from about seven million in 2011 to 41 million in 2018, according to the BBC.
Earlier this month, the UW homecoming committee published a video which sparked one of the most interesting controversies I’ve seen in my 3-and-a-half years as a student here. Admittedly though, that wasn’t my first thought when I saw the headlines – that thought was closer to: “There’s a video for that? I don’t think I know what homecoming is.” And indeed, I didn’t. “Homecoming” occupied a space in my brain loosely linked to memories of toilet paper and bad dances, so perhaps you can imagine my confusion when I found out it wasn’t the white people who were outraged that they were the only ones in it.
The American healthcare system is not known for being world-renowned. We have greater access to doctors compared to other countries, but healthcare costs in the United States tend to be astronomically high in comparison to our other Global North counterparts. In this specific case, insulin prices have reached an absurd level of overpriced, and for a drug that has not changed all that much since its discovery in 1921.
My name is Brooke Wilczewski, and I do not want to ever have to say, “Me too.” My name is Brooke Wilczewski, and I never want to be robbed. My name is Brooke Wilczewski, and I am furious that the Langdon Street Police Officer position is being taken away.
Over the past few days, social media has been filled with re-posts of Ellen DeGeneres calling for universal kindness in response to criticism over her evening at the Dallas Cowboys game with former President George W. Bush.
The Wiscard we all have grown accustomed to is facing some potential changes for the upcoming freshman class.
Diversity has become a phenomenon where institutions feel the need to advertise and, at times, even glorify their members of color. Be it at universities, corporations, or even amongst elements of popular culture, it is a buzzword used by white-majority organizations to tout their so-called care for marginalized populations.
To most people, servitude ended in the United States long ago. To others, this form of oppression and inequality is still present in daily life. Just because there are some laws that have banned traditional forms of bondage, it has not necessarily banned the forms of subjugation living right under our noses. One main form of modern-day servitude that persists are unpaid internships.
Amid the slew of memes about FBI agents watching us through our laptop cameras and the ‘Birds Aren’t Real’ conspiracy theory rants on social media, I cannot help but sit back and laugh. Partially because this half-skeptical, half-humorous commentary is consistently entertaining, and partially because I forget that most folks attempt to ignore the nature and current state of digital surveillance in their everyday lives.
The other day I was watching the 80s classic Nine to Five. The movie is about young Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton attempting to overthrow their sexist, slimy boss. The story was all about what it was like to be a working woman in the 80s, and every piece of office equipment in the movie was something I didn’t recognize — the old phones, the Xerox machine, even the coffee maker.
