Elon students are often given ample opportunities to have their voice heard in regards to campus issues during open forum discussions.
Transparency was the buzzword at last week’s Student Government Association debate and in candidate speeches for the upcoming election.
With Student Government Association elections less than a week away, Elon University students are being encouraged to support their classmates running for executive positions by exercising one of their basic rights: the right to vote.
Sorority. Fraternity. Rush. Pi Chis. Bids. Elon University has been abuzz recently with all things Greek, marking the time of year when underclassmen struggle to decide whether to rush.
The construction of the Multi-faith Center symbolizes Elon University’s mission to develop a community diverse in practice and belief, but student reaction to current diversity initiatives does not promise that completion of the Numen Lumen Pavilion will realize the administration’s goal.

For Elon University students, this time of year marks a period when everyone has the same thought on their minds: Where am I going to live next year?

We've seen a special College Coffee, discussions and forums, the creation of a Speakers' Corner and the Elon administration make free speech and the First Amendment rights of students a matter of high importance. Yet in the last week, the university administration has bluntly put an end to this dialogue by punishing a student for speaking candidly about a serious campus problem.
It has not been an easy year. It hasn't been easy on our campus, on this nation or on the world.

The F-word is ugly. No, not the four-letter one, but the other one, a once harmless British word meaning "bundle of sticks." If you're waiting to see it printed here, keep looking because you won't find it.

First published in 1889, the same year as Elon's founding, it is one of the nation's most widely-read and well-respected journalistic institutions. But last week, despite the growing number of Occupy Wall Street protesters, the paper offered little coverage, and certainly not front-page real estate, to the thousands who had taken to marching, chanting and carrying signs decrying the financial industry and blaming it for the state of the American economy.
It's the ugliest word that can be uttered in a college newsroom. And unfortunately, it's an all too frequent occurrence. College reporters across the country wake up to find their newspapers snatched from stands, broadcasts barred from airing and their funding slashed by angry student government associations and university officials. Censorship.
Four hundred forty-seven billion dollars is a lot of money. That's the amount President Barack Obama's recently announced American Jobs Act will cost to implement.
