The only way that we will be able to continue to preserve this richness, this gold that we call diversity, is by promoting a model that is inclusive for all, where the human being is a race by itself, entitled to own the same rights and different beliefs and perspectives of the world.
A few weeks ago, while digging for some ice cream at Lakeside, I noticed a group of girls at a nearby table.
It’s been a tumultuous week for the University of Missouri, as both its president Tim Wolfe and chancellor R.
I know you’re thinking: Oh, here comes another old professor talking about how we kids today are all messed up.
I should have known to expect the unexpected on Halloween Eve.

With the momentary high of Halloween now fading, it’s time once again for students to register for courses for the upcoming Winter Term and spring semester.
Five weeks. Five weeks is the amount of time I have left as student at Elon University. There are seven months until I walk across the stage under the oaks with the rest of my class.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly a month since Elon University students junior Taylor Zisholtz and freshman Lucy Smith-Williams surprised Acorn Coffee Shop worker Kathryn Thompson with the opportunity to take her family to Disney World.
It comes at no surprise that Elon University’s fraternity and sorority community is at a crossroads.
