Setting up fort in Kent: Following Trump’s immigration ban, the International Students and Scholars Office is expanding its hours and will set up a completely new office in Kent. (BTW, for those who are affected by this policy, do you know what resources are available to you?)
A long time (30 years) coming: Cornell’s wrestling team is pretty good (it’s ranked No. 9), and we have to face them this weekend. (Note: We haven’t beaten them in the past 30 years.) However, momentum is on our side with a recent string of strong results.
Don’t-miss dates: We have plenty of pre-med, pre-law, and other kinds of preprofessional peeps here at CU. If you’re a junior, a really behind senior, or an overachieving sophomore, do you know when your respective test dates are?
Squashing the competition: Our men’s squash team is ranked No. 3 in the nation, but if we want to move up into No. 1, we’ll have to defeat Harvard and Dartmouth this weekend.
Hidden names, hidden figures: The administration’s been investigating an incident where dorm name tags belonging to students of East Asian descent were stolen. What are international students saying about it? Sarah Lu reflects on how this may be indicative of a greater racism issue on campus.
More than a name: In another piece about the dorm name tag incident, this op-ed focuses on the history behind names and how they are important in helping us remember our heritage.
Getting comfortable at Columbia: Some international students feel like they’re the “other” at CU, but for Karim Nader, this op-ed writer who identifies as both queer and Arab, things are not much better (and are often worse) back home. How can we fight to feel comfortable in places which we occupy?
