    Student leaders wrote an open letter demanding that Clemson University create an LGBTQ safe space on campus to rectify the school’s alleged callousness toward such students. In the letter, which was published in The Tiger, the coalition declares that “a permanent space must be allocated to the LGBTQ+ community” because “incoming LGBTQ+ and other underrepresented students enter campus with the deck stacked against them.”

    A Macalester College student organization referring to itself as “Stop White Noise” recently held a moment of silence to protest “the centrality of whiteness and Eurocentrism on campus.” “The intent of this action is to raise awareness of the space whiteness takes up in our classrooms and curriculum,” a website created for the organization explains, even revealing that protesters would be “entering various classrooms” with “the permission of professors.”

    The higher education industry is overdue for a shakeout. For decades, it has pushed up tuition at three times the rate of inflation and increasingly relied on students indenturing their futures with huge debts that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Meanwhile, technological change in the form of online education has flourished as a low-cost alternative, and for-profit universities, free from the archaic practices of traditional higher education (including tenure) have grown luxuriantly under what amounts to a price umbrella maintained by traditional universities. Able to focus on career preparation and free from the academic fashions that inject political correctness into...

    When the College Republicans chapter at Maryland’s Hood College decided to put up a temporary display honoring prominent conservatives, the group wanted to promote the free exchange of ideas. “We just wanted to provoke thoughtful discussion,” said club president Christopher Gardner. “We have done that.” In reality, the young Republicans accomplished even more by exposing how close-minded many of their fellow students have become.

    Gone are the days when saying something that hurts another’s feelings is a bias incident. Now just looking at someone funny can get you reported to the campus Thought Police. It happened at the University of Wisconsin Madison, where an unnamed “white, female student” was reported to the university’s bias incident reporting system. Her crime? Glaring at two female peers.

    n the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities.

    What is your worst group project ever? Mine is occurring this semester and it involves an assigned team and a stubborn professor who is of the "don't make me come UP there" school of thought. Our group has had a total of 4 meetings, all semester, and I have to say that I've learned a great deal through this experience. I have learned that Google documents can indeed be made to disappear forever if they are moved before being presumably deleted. I have learned that when people lie, they seem to believe the more public the lie (during a speech)...

    A geology professor at Pomona College says she will prioritize students of color, immigrants, and low-income students for enrollment in a class with a strict 15-student cap. A flyer advertising the course on “Southern California Earthquakes and Water,” an introductory geological science class with a particular focus on “the particular geologic challenges” of Southern California, expresses a particular desire for “students from a range of backgrounds whose varied perspectives will contribute to the course.”

    According to the ethos of black students at Pomona College, one of the nation’s most competitive (and expensive) small liberal arts colleges, white people cannot legitimately study and write about black criminals. Tony Airaksinen of Campus Reform writes: Students at Pomona College have published a demand letter urging administrators to rescind their offer to hire Sociology Professor Alice Goffman because she’s white. The “Letter to the Pomona College Sociology Department,” published last Friday argues that by hiring Goffman, the administration has neglected their commitment to promoting diversity and supporting women of color. “This practice is detrimental to Pomona’s goal of...

    A student at the University of Florida (UF) became a victim of collegiate political correctness earlier this semester when his “History of Water” (AMH/EUH3931) professor, Jack E. Davis, deducted points from his essay for the use of the word “man.” Martin Poirier, a history major at UF, informed The Daily Nerv that he was penalized on his essay for his use of the word “man” as opposed to its gender-neutral alternative, “human.”

    Sociologist Alice Goffman wrote a book about police involvement in black communities, based on six years living in a violent urban neighborhood. It was praised by Cornel West and panned by Heather Mac Donald. Yet Goffman is finding herself under attack by the same circle of activists that shut down a “Blue Lives Matter” talk by Mac Donald.
