Some social justice efforts by college students have reached the point in which they have become a nuisance to the public eye. The University of California Berkeley had a social justice protest on December of 2014. This protest spanned over many days and consisted of over a thousand students fighting for the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The protestors managed to cause havoc in the Berkeley area by blocking the Interstate 80 highway; this prevented the public from commuting on the highway from both directions. Social justice warriors even smashed windows and stole from a local Radio Shack while fighting for their cause; trash cans were set on fire in the process as well.
In my first semester at Duke University, I have witnessed an array of attacks on minorities and the subsequent reaction by various student groups, ultimately leading to the production of an independent underground zine consisting of pieces written by a multitude of students: the Un-Chronicled. In this paper, I attempt to analyze the discourse set forth in the magazine using mainly the political ideologies presented by Wendy Brown in “Wounded Attachments” and, to a lesser extent, Richard Ford in “Beyond ‘Difference’: A Reluctant Critique of Legal Identity Politics.” While I believe many of the points made in the publication are valid and deserve the attention of both fellow students and administration, the presentation of those points is often

The men who gave passes some people which spiked the drinking surge more than before the act. The newly illegal alcohol market has to part: the makers and the buyers. The buyers are always forgotten in this market such as Tom and Daisy. Tom condemns Gatsby of making his money illegally, while he is spending his illegally.
In conclusion, it is evident that Alexander is anything but “the Great” because he is selfish, he is ruthless, and he has no respect for other cultures. Alexander killed over a million people, and many into slavery. He destroyed countless buildings of cultural significance, and he did great damage to the various cultures he conquered. Some might say Alexander was great because he expanded Greece or because he was influential, but evidence shows him to be anything

Lowering the Drinking Age Picture yourself at this amazing party, you are having the time of your life, but you realize that there are so many people trashed and you are the only one that is not as wasted. The neighbors call the police department complaining that there is so much noise happening next door, that they want the police to shut it down or to at least tell them to be quiet. Well imagine your friend answering the door to the police but saying something incredibly stupid. The cops tell you to turn down the music, they really don’t care that you are eighteen and drinking because they know that it is the legal age. You see, most people would disagree that the drinking age should be eighteen because they think that we are still very
Third, the actions of the police historically have been a topic of concern for punk bands. Bands have a different way of expressing their beliefs, but the Subhumans have never been shy about their views. In their song “No” they state, “No, I don’t believe in the police force, police brutality isn’t a dream.” These lyrics were key on the 1980’s as punk shows were always broken up by the police which would result in arrests and members of the punk community in the hospital. This brutality by the police is more present today than ever.

From the moment they step onto their college campuses for freshman orientation, undergraduate students are encouraged to get involved and make the most of their college experience. Joining Greek life by way of social sororities and social fraternities is a well-known way for undergrads to do this both on their college campuses and within the community. Despite the opportunities that these organizations offer, some colleges and universities are considering whether or not to continue offering their students the opportunity to join such Greek organizations on their campuses due to many recent incidents within the last decade. The New Jersey Institute of Technology has shared statistics on members of fraternities and sororities on their website such as there being 9 million Greeks nationally, 43 of the nation’s 50 largest corporations being headed by fraternity men, along with 85% of Fortune 500 executives and 40 of the 47 U.S. Supreme Court Justices since 1910 and that over 70% of Greeks graduate while under 50% of non-Greek students graduate, among other
Life Changing or Life Taking? In today’s society Greek life is looked upon as a harmful and detrimental thing in and around college campuses all throughout the United States; is this what they really are or is this just what others perceive them to be? Greek life is constantly receiving bad publicity in the media, “A string of ugly incidents has reinforced the image of entitled white men egging each other on to behave badly: chanting racist songs, sharing pictures of incapacitated women, hazing their pledges” so often times the majority of the population looks down on and frowns upon it (Berrett). Some may say it’s unhealthy due to hazing the members associated with it receive.

Broadly speaking college students tend to be at an all-time high risk of being victims their first two years . While women are typically portrayed as the victims being jumped by an unknown perpetrator from the bushes the reality is far from that. Research suggests that there is a significant relationship between membership in sororities and sexual assault and an increase in victimization risk among those who reside in sorority houses. Studies have hypothesized that women who typically join sororities have an increased inclination to participate in gratifying behaviors, generally ranging from excessive alcohol consumption which usually augments the
Problem/Issue Overview: The whole gun control issue has been a highly controversial problem in the U.S for the past couple of decades. From store robberies to school shootings when violence and guns come together the issue does not end well. The nation should act stricter on gun laws and become more aware of the outcome of allowing students to walk around with firearms on campus.
