The mechanical engineering department of Clemson University is on the brink of blatant discrimination against graduate students from other countries. They have began to limit access to invaluable internships by forcing international students to enroll in a thesis program. US-born students, i…

    Trust me when I say this: I’m just as sick of politics as you are. I’ve been arguing about politics for a good year and a half now, with friends, relatives and people I only know online. I went full all-in mode on political coverage leading up to Nov. 8 last year, and I thought that the …

In the last year, the Clemson University administration has fostered a culture of discrimination on campus. The idea of “One Clemson” is a myth.  In fact, there are now two Clemson’s: one campus that CU administrators discriminate for, and one campus that CU administrators discriminate against.

Last week a play about white supremacy and racism called “God’s Country” was performed on campus. The play ended with a quote from Desmond Tutu that goes, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”  This quote has stuck with me, as I think it …

I just came from today's march, dialogue, and sit-in.  These student-organized events protest the defacing of a banner that honors African-American history here, as well as the university's failure to respond fully to student demands for true equity.

I'm watching the CU-FSU game and I'm appalled at the poor attendance for the last home game of the season. Clemson's team is finally ranked, almost assured of that elusive NCAA tournament bid, and the students are no where in sight. I've heard more enthusiasm from high school crowds. Is it a…

Prior to the horrific events that unfolded in Charlottesville, VA, modern-day “Anti-Fascist Action” (Antifa) groups, were rightfully relegated to the fringe of political discourse. A far cry from their namesakes, Antifa are less a 1920’s freedom fighting groups fighting a fascist takeover, a…

One of the phrases I hear thrown around a lot on campus is the “Clemson Family,” and a question I've asked myself, as I know so many others have, is “What makes the ‘Clemson Family?’” People in the immigrant community and other marginalized communities are looking to Clemson for protection, …

While the recent “Correlation, Not Causation” article raises an important point concerning victim blaming in sexual assault cases, it vastly oversimplifies the issue of sexual assault and alcohol consumption on college campuses. The author also claims that the Stanford alcohol policy is “uni…
