Ah, summertime. A time for many students at the University of Michigan to head off to big corporations to get the opportunity to earn a meaningful wage and network — an opportunity that can open doors for years to come. These individuals have positioned themselves for success now and in the future. These internships should obviously be celebrated, but what about those who don’t have corporate aspirations? What about the students who have to take an unpaid internship with a political candidate?

I am a proud University of Michigan alum — a 1973 LSA graduate. I was dismayed to read about Michigan Medicine’s intention to embrace concierge medicine with Victor’s Care. And while it may not be illegal or unethical, from my perspective it is the wrong thing to do. This approach may be acceptable for a health system driven by profit, but it sure strikes me as inconsistent with the motives of a publicly-funded institution. In the end, it comes down to upholding the values of the University that I have known and loved all these years.

Sometimes, the largest environmental issues stem from the smallest objects. In the ocean and the Great Lakes, plastic is a large concern for the well-being of wildlife. It is very common for litter to be dumped and transported into these large bodies of water via wind, streams and rivers that empty into oceans or lakes. Forty percent of the ocean’s surface contains some form of plastic debris.

Dear Central Student Government leaders,

As you take your new seats as representatives of our campus community, I would first like to congratulate you on your election and to wish you the best. I hope that you are able to meet the numerous challenges, both old and new, with practicality and grace. I am sure the new CSG administration and assembly will make positive change. With that being said, allow me to offer my suggestions as to how CSG can address the growing mental health crisis on our campus.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month; if you’ve been opening your social media feeds or participating in society for the past few months, I imagine you are not lacking awareness of this problem. However, you might be lacking hope. It feels like we keep finding more perpetrators, more complicit bystanders and more cultural ills but we aren’t finding paths to healing.

One can only wonder what will transpire today as Palestinian protests on the Gaza-Israel border enter their third week. For now, snapshots from the latest “March of Return” demonstration offer insight into the Palestinian grief and longing currently on display.

Over the last few months, politics on campus have shifted their focus to affordability and access. When the Central Student Government Affordability Guide debuted in January, student outrage at the glib nature of its advice sparked serious criticism — followed by a passionate call to action — from all corners of the University of Michigan.
