OPINION

Words of wisdom from a senior to first-years

The general hysteria at the end of high school is profoundly unique. College decisions, prom season, and graduation all come in rapid succession, only to be followed by a summer filled with excitement and slight anxiety.


Dr. John McAdams put a teaching assistant in the cross-hairs through his claim that she censored a student.

McAdams v. Marquette not about free speech

Though the event that prompted McAdams v. Marquette occurred in 2014, the Wisconsin Supreme Court case it led to last week has the making of a typical story in 2018: ideological charge, selective interpretation of the facts, and peculiar characters. The case pits Dr. John McAdams, a former associate professor of political science, against Marquette University.


The March For Our Lives was just one of many historic events in Madison this semester. 
OPINION

An overarching look at Madison this semester

Madison students, community members march to ask: ‘Am I next?” On March 24, thousands of Madison-area students and community members surrounded the Capitol to make a statement: “Not one more.” The crowd, which was a part of the international March For Our Lives, had gathered to demand that lawmakers address the epidemic of gun violence — which plagues communities nationwide on a daily basis. “When I am in class and the door is left open, I sit in fear,” one student activist told the crowd. Yet lawmakers have done nothing to address the issue.


OPINION

Paul Ryan should learn from newcomer Bryce

Last week, Paul Ryan announced he would not seek reelection in the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin, ending a 20-year career as the representative for the southeastern part of the state and a three-year stint as the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Good riddance.

Letter to the editor: The Palestinian struggle reflects injustice to people of color everywhere

For communities of color, Last April, students of color unanimously passed a resolution in their shared governance body to demand a divestment from companies engaged in human rights abuses through PRIVATE PRISONS, ARMS MANUFACTURERS, BORDER WALLS, AND FOSSIL FUELS. People of color suffer at the hands of oppressive government policies and racist ideologies.


Finding local vendors that can meet the demand of UW-Madison dining halls throughout the year presents unique challenges for university dining services.

Cardinal View: UW-Madison gradually improving quantity of locally sourced food

In a calendar year, UW Housing purchases nearly 40,000 lbs. of four-ounces hamburger patties. It brings in 17,300 lbs. of plain chicken breasts — just one type of chicken it sells — and more than 63,000 lbs. of lettuce. Producing food in high volume is a constant challenge that Paul Sprunger, UW-Madison’s executive chef, and his team have to deal with. And finding local vendors who can keep up with the university’s supply and demand is another issue in and of itself. But, in recent years, UW-Madison is making incremental improvements to how much of its food comes from local sources — though it’s important to note that local food does not necessarily equate to better tasting food.


OPINION

Business school does not adequately value input from students

On Thursday March 15th, Business School Interim Dean Gerhart invited student leaders, including the Undergraduate Business Council President, the ASM Business School Council Representative, and myself to a follow up meeting regarding a student advisory committee. Our voices were not respected in this meeting.
