Terror Comes to Campus

Gone are the days when as students our biggest worry was passing the next exam. Today, students and parents live in fear of some lunatic entering the halls of schools and carrying out their hateful agenda. Sadly, our community experienced the horror of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook and the scars are yet to heal.

White House Pushes for Free Community Colleges

White House Pushes for Free Community Colleges

President Barack Obama announced that he wants to make community colleges completely “free for everybody who is willing to work for it.”  Obama proposed the idea following several states’ decisions to offer a free community college education to residents. The proposal, titled America’s College Promise, is a plan to provide students of any age enrollment in a community college without paying for tuition. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 and be registered full-time or half-time to be eligible.

An array of faculty and student choreographers displayed an assortment of dance styles, including modern, hip-hop, lyrical and jazzy tap during last semester’s Informal Dance Showcase in December.  Twelve creative pieces were performed by the Terpsichorean Dance Club, Repertory/Ensemble and Dance Program students.

Corruption in Legalized Sports Gambling

Corruption in Legalized Sports Gambling

The NBA, MLB, NCAA, NHL, and NFL recently sued Governor Chris Christie for attempting to legalize gambling in the state of New Jersey. Currently, a Federal Law prohibits gambling in every state except for Montana, Delaware, Oregon, and Nevada.  If it were legalized everywhere, people could be more harmed than helped.

The 4-Year Myth

Students have been told a great myth: most students earn their degree on time. The truth of the matter is that the majority of full-time students at public universities do not graduate with a bachelor’s degree in four years, and the number of these students is even larger at community colleges. The system is costing students thousands of extra dollars in tuition and is not graduating enough of them.

CT Elections: Mixed Student Reactions

On the eve of Election Day 2014, it seemed like deja-vu in the Connecticut gubernatorial race. Just like in 2010, it was Foley vs. Malloy in a heated battle for the Governor’s seat in which it really could have gone either way, according to Quinnipiac Polls. As of the day before the election, the poll said that both Democratic candidate Dannel Malloy and Republican candidate Tom Foley had an even 43% of the vote a piece.

Under Pressure, Colleges Update Sexual Assault Policies

Nationwide, there has been a lot of talk, and action, on college campuses against sexual assault. Last month, the state of California passed a bill that requires its colleges to define “yes means yes” when investigating claims of sexual assault. With this bill, the definition of consent requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”
