    Dear Pro-Choice College Students, Something has been bothering me for a while. As the president of my colleges pro-life group, I encounter many of you. While I disagree with your position on abortion, we have often had wonderful conversations. Due to your willingness to dialogue about this issue, some of you are now a part of the pro-life movement, having seen the error of the pro-choice view. But, there is a faction of pro-choice students I have encountered who are radical bullies, and it is these who frustrate me more than anything else. Both I and the groups vice president...

Since when do universities resist the whims of the woke brigades? SEE ALSO: NY Times: Say, this Steele dossier appears to be false (and maybe was a Russian disinformation effort) If you find it gross that college students would support blackballing someone on the basis of a bare allegation, remember that thats how students themselves are treated on campus under Title IX. Guilty until proven innocent is...

    WASHINGTON Federal workers are some of the hardest hit by the partial government shutdown, but those who depend on their business, including rideshare drivers, are also feeling the impact. Luke Cho, a student at George Mason University majoring in Russian Studies, is an Uber driver in Fairfax County. Driving for Uber during the evening rush has helped Cho pay the bills. Before the shutdown, we were seeing high demand all across the District, said Cho. But lately, hes been feeling the impact of the shutdown. The riders just started disappearing and the calls just stopped coming, said Cho. Instead...

    Forget vending machines, PepsiCo is testing a way to bring snacks directly to college students. The chip and beverage maker says it will start making deliveries with self-driving robots on Thursday at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Students will be able to order Baked Lay's, SunChips or Bubly sparkling water on an app, and then meet the six-wheeled robot at more than 50 locations on campus... Three workers on the campus will be refilling the robots with food and drinks and replacing the batteries with recharged ones when they go dead... PepsiCo says it's testing this way...
  • Do Millennials Really Love Socialism?

    The millennial generation is taking a lot of heat lately, with even some of its members a bit shame-faced about their values, habits, and much else. Most troubling to the economically literate are surveys revealing millennials high level of comfort with socialism: at least one poll suggests a majority might prefer to live in a socialist or communist society. Since many in this age group are also OK with using physical force to silence those with whom they disagree, its not unreasonable to fret theyll transform America into something like Venezuela if given the chance. But I spend my work...

    Sarah Barrett didn't need a grand study to tell her a bunch of students on Kansas State University's campus had been going without food. As an assistant dean of students, she had heard enough of them talk about choosing books or housing costs over food to know that the university needed to do something to help its hungry students. K-State students are not alone. The problem of college students' inability to afford food is common on campuses across the country. According to a first-of-its-kind survey of two- and four-year private and public schools, 36 percent of students on college campuses...

    A special message from We sent crayons to help soothe your wounded soul, but we forgot to remove the offensive privileged colors. We sent bubbles to surround you, but their rainbow prism reflections didnt accurately correspond to the diversity of the entire gender rainbow. We tried to distract you from political realities by using fairy tales not realizing the hurt that would cause to those that identify as fairies. We worked to cover up statues of historical figures that offended you, but sometimes we did it with white sheets. And that was wrong.

Jessica Murphy, a 20-year-old student at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, recently published a column that represented the culmination of months worth of work and research, including a dozen public records act requests to the University of Wisconsin system. Her target? Biased classes offered through the public university system that indoctrinate rather than teach, and degrade capitalism, praise Marxism and encourage a social justice warrior ideology, she wrote in her piece, headlined Top Five Wasteful Classes in the UW System. Published Monday by the MacIver Institute, a Wisconsin-based think tank...

    There are millions of fine young people across America today, people of character, people of principle, people of discipline, people of maturity. But there are millions of others who have been coddled all their lives, almost never taught to lose or be put in their place or take full responsibility for their actions. It is some of those young people who are protesting on the streets and being comforted by their professors as they cry on college campuses in the aftermath of the elections.Just consider this scene from our campuses on the day after the elections, as reported by the...

    Today, our young people are captives of a system that is turning them into sniveling cowards afraid to debate and face the challenges of the real world Another week, another campus threatened by the dangerous slogan, Trump 2016. Last week, the students of Emory University in Atlanta needed counseling and mental health evaluations after noticing their campus was polluted by disgusting chalk markings. The offensive words included Trump, Trump 2016, and Vote Trump and they were found on concrete steps and even, heaven forbid, the sidewalk. Immediately after noticing the horrific chalk graffiti, 50 students demanded a meeting with Jim...
  • It's Little Mystery Why So Many College Students Are Illiterate

    The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV's "Judge Judy," is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant...

    Some BYU students are defying national odds by showing their support over Ted Cruz and they’re encouraging others to do the same. The Ted Cruz College Republicans coordinated an ‘bubbly’ event to spark conversation for the upcoming election and show support for Cruz on Saturday, Feb. 6. The event was held at Sodalicious at the Village at South Campus in Provo. Many students gathered together to watch the Republican Debate and enjoy refreshments. Fliers and posters were hung up to show support, and many attendees wore stickers with Ted Cruz’s name on them. According to Pew Research the rate of...

    Some college students agree radio stations should stop playing “White Christmas,” because the holiday classic is said to be “a racially-charged micro-aggression.” Media Research Center’s Dan Joseph asked students on a college campus to sign a petition against the song “because the song only focuses on ‘White’ Christmases.” Joseph asks, “We think that the song ‘White Christmas’ is insulting to people of color because it says snow is white and therefore it is good.” “Sounds understandable, makes sense,” one student responds to his plea for a signature. Only one student refused, while another requested more information, according to the video,...

    Ted Cruz recently appeared on comedian Adam Carolla’s popular show, where they discussed what’s been going on lately with free speech on college campuses. SPOILER ALERT: Cruz is not a fan.I know leftists hate hearing this, but like virtually everyone in the American right-wing, Cruz actually hearts free speech. “There are many on the left who I think are weakening this country. So you talk about, for example, universities. You see at universities these essentially pampered teenagers, many of them from very wealthy homes, who complain that they don’t want to hear anything that they disagree with. That it is...

    Thanks to Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the socialist running for president, we are learning that one of the latest examples of victim groups is students, who freely decide to go to college and in many cases take on student debt to pay for it. Of this victim group, black and Hispanic college students are suffering tremendously, according to a story appearing last Wednesday in The Washington Post. It claimed that blacks and Hispanics are at a higher risk of financial instability based on their college majors Inside, the paper trumpeted the news in a headline, Racial disparity in degree selection....

    A few weeks back, I read a Washington Post story "Inside the admissions process at George Washington University" and noted this interesting tidbit towards the end: GW also asks students to list a role model and two words to describe themselves. As for herself, Freitag said, she would list Martha Stewart/Tina Fey and sassy/classy. This year, shes seeing a lot of Edward Snowden citations. I had thought about writing it up, but decided it was a pretty small thing, really. It's not secret that, as a group, younger people have a much more favorable impression of Snowden than older people....
