NTIM: The guardian angels of Elon University

11/8/17 8:25pm

I was first introduced to Elon University’s E-Rides program this fall. The transportation program — offered from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday-Thursdays, and from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Fridays — takes students across campus and to locations within a one-and-a-half mile radius from the Moseley Student Center. It is an extension of the on-campus hospitality program promoted at Elon.

NTIM: Do we have a right to values?

10/9/17 9:27pm

  So far in college, I’ve learned it is impossible to view U.S. politics from only one perspective. Like the range of students at a liberal arts college, the combinations of viewpoints are endless.

NTIM: We all must honor black history

2/8/17 9:45am

Black History is a living, breathing movement that our forebears started with hopes of cultivating a better environment for us. Their legacy is left to us. We, as in every human being, are capable of redirecting longstanding perceptions of race.

NTIM: Unknowns, uncertainties and the undecided voter

10/5/16 8:52am

It is an intimidating challenge to be a young voter in this election. When I was in high school, I used to dread going to AP government because our political system seemed too complex and unpredictable.  Today, I am 19 and have come to terms with the reality that I cannot be an apathetic citizen — I should vote this year.  My experiences at Elon have increased my political consciousness.
