EDITORIAL: Why a Liberal Arts education is important

It’s easy to doubt the importance of a liberal arts education in everyday life, especially when weighing the value of certain courses for potential career paths. But we should take advantage of ways in which this type of education can help us advance in life, both personally and professionally.

NTIM: The guardian angels of Elon University

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?

  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. Notions of representation and freedoms become jumbled in rhetoric about identity politics in this era of globalization.  We grapple daily with our differing interests, occupations and political affiliations. These three, together, are derived from our self-imposed rules and values.

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

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.
