    The Fix ^ | September 21, 2016
    In the age of safe spaces and trigger warnings comes another new trend to the college repertoire: coloring books. This fall, campuses nationwide are offering coloring books to students to help them de-stress. At American University on Monday, its counseling center provided coloring sheets in honor of Healthy Campus Week, noting on its Facebook page that adult coloring books can help with a number of emotional and mental health issues. Conditions cited include obsessive-compulsive, eating, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as anger management and substance abuse issues. The time and focus that adult coloring takes helps the individual remove...

Missouri head coach Barry Odom Missouri football coach Barry Odom has instituted a team policy that prohibits his players from owning handguns, according to Matthew Stevens of The Montgomery Advertiser.Stevens reports that Odom does not want his players owning handguns, even if they're obtained legally, while they are members of the Mizzou football team.However, Odom clarified that guns used for hunting are separate from the team policy. While many schools prohibit handguns on campus, Mizzou football seems to be the only program that specifically prohibits owning a handgun as a...

    The University of Missouri (MU) is renaming its Unisex restrooms on campus in response to complaints that the current label isnt inclusive. Henceforth, restrooms intended for use by both men and women will simply be labeled toilet. The change is apparently meant to accommodate student complaints that the unisex label, intended to encompass everybody, is actually exclusionary and hurtful. Unisex is just such an uncomfortable and outdated word, MU student Sterling Waldman told the Columbia Missourian. The word, Waldman said, excludes people who identify as neither male nor female. Waldman serves as the social justice chair in MUs student senate,...

    What is with this school? The University of Missouri seems to be a breeding ground for unhinged progressives, who appear to have turned a vigil remembering the victims of the Orlando attack into some weird lecture about race. The College Fix had the details concerning what Mizzou graduate and activist Tiffany Melecio said before addressing the diverse crowd, namely how she was nervous getting up on stage because of all the white people in attendance. “I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd, and that wasn’t a joke,” she said...

    The University of Missouri, which was rocked by race protests last year that toppled its two leaders, caused its biggest donors to retreat and dampened interest among prospective students, will spend more than $1 million to audit its diversity policies. In addition to the $1.1 million audit, the UM System also plans to spend $2 million on other diversity initiatives, including the hiring of a chief diversity officer and systemwide task force, the Missourian reported earlier this week. IBIS Consulting Group will conduct the comprehensive audit, interviewing students, professors and staff on all four campuses in the UM System, according...

    People do not want to attend college where thuggery and outright bigotry is not only condoned, but supported. The University of Missouri (Mizzou) was ground zero for Black Lives Matters academic crusade and now the university is paying the price for enabling the black supremacist movement. For months, racial tensions remained incredibly high and protests were encouraged as university officials cowardly caved to any demands in an effort to avoid being called a racist. Those who crusaded for supposed social justice went so far as to demand segregation for whites by demanding the creation of a black-only healing space where...

    The Coalition of Graduate Workers claimed an overwhelming victory Tuesday when 84 percent of graduate assistant ballots supported forming a union at the University of Missouri. About 30 percent of the nearly 2,600 eligible graduate students who hold assistantships voted Monday and Tuesday, coalition Co-chairman Connor Lewis said. The next step is to organize union officials and formally ask the university to engage in collective bargaining, he said. It meets all the requirements by federal and state standards, he said. It was an impressive turnout given that there were last-minute attempts at voter intimidation. Lewis said he was referring to...

    Following a drop in students applying for housing, the University of Missouri will not be placing students in two dorms for the fall 2016 semester. Mizzou will be closing the Respect and Excellence halls (ironic names, given the circumstances) in order to utilize dorm space "in the most efficient manner" to keep costs down. In March, the university announced that it saw a sharp drop in admissions for the coming school year, and will have 1,500 fewer students. This will lead to a $32 million budget shortfall for the school, prompting the need to close the dorms in order to...

The shortfall would mean job cuts and an increase in student fees. Yesterday, the university informed students that two dorms would be shuttered in order to more efficiently use their facilities. The school announced a 5 percent cut "to all annual recurring general revenue budgets" and an "across-the-board hiring freeze for all units on campus."

We now have a highly regarded African-American interim president, Michael Middleton, who has a long history at the university. Our interim chancellor seems far more attuned to the campus climate and hosts weekly “chats with the chancellor” to foster a more open atmosphere. On the surface, things seem to have returned to normal or perhaps even improved. Recent trends, however, suggest that post-protest Mizzou is likely to experience three adverse developments....

Factoring in the "urgency" created by 24-hour news coverage, the recent spate of student protests and, in a couple of cases, the ouster of two university presidents and a chancellor, belies the fact that there is an all-too-real civil rights threat on the rise on college campuses.

    President Obama weighed in on the recent protests at the University of Missouri for the first time in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. The president lauded the students’ activism, but also warned they need to maintain an open dialogue with those who hold differing views. “There is clearly a problem at the University of Missouri, and that's not just coming from students. That's coming from some faculty,” the president told Stephanopoulos Thursday at the White House. “I think it is entirely appropriate for students in a thoughtful, peaceful way to protest what they see as...

    Activists that have taken over U.S. college campuses this week protesting racial injustice took to Twitter last night to complain that news coverage of the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris had stolen their spotlight. Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters on Twitter said their struggles with racial oppression were being “erased” by the overwhelming news coverage of the murder of scores of people at the hands of Islamic State extremists. “Racist white people kill me, you want everyone to have sympathy for YOUR tragedy, but you have none for ours,” one user tweeted, adding “#Mizzou.” “Disgusted @ white conservative Americans...

    Campus activists in America showed their true faces during an international tragedy last night: they are the selfish, spoiled children we always knew they were. Black Lives Matter and Mizzou protesters responded to the murder of scores of people in Paris at the hands of Islamic extremists by complaining about losing the spotlight and saying their “struggles” were being “erased.” Their struggles, remember, consist of a poop swastika of unknown provenance and unsubstantiated claims of racially-charged remarks somewhere near Missouri’s campus. So debased has the language on American campuses become that these incidents, which many observers believe to be hoaxes,...

    If you never heard of the term "Red Guards," allow me to fill you in. During Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution movement (1966-1976), many over-zealous Chinese college students began referring to themselves as "Red Guards" of Mao and the Communist ideology. They were an ignorant bunch, but a deadly force with unchecked power. They believed "knowledge is useless," and "exams are harmful," so they went on strike, refusing to take classes. Initially, the Red Guards targeted their aggression at professors and school administrators. Any old grievances and frustrations became excuses to punish people who used to command respect. Professors and school...
