I was sitting by myself outside of Freshii waiting for a friend when a guy sat down across from me.
Apparently, we Democrats are âlost in the woods.â I thought, in my infinite wisdom as a 21 year-old in college, I should write a guide for us on what we can be doing in the mean time and how to get out of these woods. The election ended around 2:00am on Wednesday, November 9th when Hillary Clinton ...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Faculty and staff members stand in solidarity with students who have been made to feel vulnerable11/19/16 7:37am
Dear Elon University Students, The undersigned faculty and staff stand in solidarity with those of you who have been made to feel vulnerable or unwelcome by the rhetoric of hate surrounding the 2016 election.
Since Donald Trump was announced the 45th president of the United States, professors from all departments — many of whom have no political science expertise — have likely stood in front of students, lesson plan in hand, and considered the question, “Do I address the red elephant in the room?” We think yes, absolutely.
I woke up this past Wednesday to the same surprising news as my 300 million fellow Americans: Donald Trump had handily defeated Hillary Clinton in the previous day’s electoral contest.
When the clock strikes midnight, a sense of fear and anticipation is said to erupt.
It was early Thursday morning when I got a news tip about a hateful note written on whiteboard saying “Bye Bye Latinos Hasta La Vista.” Looking through Facebook posts of the image, I sourced the time and location of the message to Tony Crider’s 8 a.m. Global Experience course in Kivette Hall Room 100.

Editor's note: This editorial was written before Nov. 8 due to print deadline. By the time you read this, the United States will have elected its next president.
I voted early last week with two of my friends. We went during a three-hour gap between classes and work, and the line was so long that I didn’t even get to eat lunch before my seven hour shift.
The situation is undeniably complicated. Between IV reaffirming its stance on gay marriage in no uncertain terms and Elon University’s campus-wide push for inclusivity, Elon InterVarsity (IV) is in a tough place. But so are the students in IV at Elon who look to the organization for spiritual guidance, as are the students in the greater Elon community committed to their own views of inclusivity.
Racist. Islamophobic. Xenophobic. Sexist. Homophobic. Hypocrite. Words like these are often used to describe people like me-people know as conservatives. The truth is not all conservatives are racists, sexists, islamophobes, xenophobes, or homophobes. Sure, there are people like that who consider themselves conservatives, but they don’t reflect a conservative ideal and are by no means justified in their thoughts or actions.
Growing up, I was told I could be anything or anyone on Halloween. I was lucky to have my creativity encouraged, from dressing up as a chess piece when I was in elementary school to a star-covered “Kevin Space-y” get-up when I studied abroad.
For students who had to struggle to get here or have struggled while here — including first-generation students — the graduation ceremony is more than just an orchestrated event, guaranteed to be given to you at the end of your four years. It’s something you and those who love you have fought incredibly hard for. It’s the culmination of more than four years of coursework. It’s a product of collective and unapologetic tenacity from you and those who have fought with you. So on the day of your undergraduate graduation, your invitation for family and friends is more than just an expectation.
I remember when I first toured Elon University. I walked through campus, the North Carolina sunlight poking through the giant oak trees, and I realized that I was meant to be an Elon student.
I'm one of the Associate Chaplains at Elon University and an ordained American Baptist minister. If you know me, you know that I'm almost always wearing an Elon baseball cap.
Dear Mr. Trump, I watched the second presidential debate this past Sunday as you sparred against Secretary Clinton.
