Collegiate Press Roundup

Glenn Ricketts

We begin here a new occasional series that will provide links to individual items at student newspapers from across the country.  We hope to bring to our readers a variety of material - whether serious, frivolous, bizarre, or somewhere in between - illustrating contemporary campus trends from the vantage point of undergraduate journalists.  Below follows our initial potpourri of five selections recently published in collegiate newspapers. 

  1. UMass. Daily Collegian: One student’s view of the dismal “hookup” culture on campus: http://dailycollegian.com/2010/03/21/bad-romance/ 
  2. Daily Californian op-ed writer at Berkeley explains the role of “structural violence” in recent “hate crimes” in the UC system: http://www.dailycal.org/article/108517/the_power_of_nonviolence 
  3. A UCLA Daily Bruin columnist urges students to get serious about activism and protests: http://www.dailybruin.com/articles/2010/3/8/inclusion-anti-racism-rhetoric-rallies-education-d/ 
  4. University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign writer assesses sartorial trends among female undergraduates, makes recommendations: http://www.dailyillini.com/blogs/different-perspectives/2010/03/17/ladies-wear-your-no-pants-with-pride 
  5. A two-part series in the Harvard Crimson examines academic dishonesty and plagiarism on campus.  The link here connects to part II, but provides access to the first part at the beginning of the article: http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2010/3/23/students-withdrawal-required-college/
