The deadly attacks on two New Zealand mosques that massacred more than 50 people is a gruesome reminder that far-right terrorism is a rising threat.

This past Saturday, there was a false alarm during which University of Michigan students were alerted about an active shooter situation in Mason Hall, leaving them confused, fearful and traumatized. This occurred at the same time as a vigil on the Diag for the victims of the recent attacks on two New Zealand mosques, where more than 50 people were killed.

By 4 p.m., more than 200 of us arrived at the University of Michigan Diag for a vigil to mourn the lives of those lost in New Zealand, organized by the Islamophobia Working Group.

At about 4:35 p.m., 20 terrified people called 911 from Mason Hall, reporting the sound of gunshots.

At 4:43 p.m., I sent my loved ones a text message that read, “I’m okay I love you."

On Saturday, students at the University of Michigan were forced to deal with crisis. Though it ended up being a false alarm, many members of our campus community were nonetheless affected — particularly members of the Muslim community, which was in the midst of vigil for those killed in the shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand by a white supremacist when the false reports of a shooter began to surface. We want to hear from anyone who felt impacted by Saturday’s events.

I am writing in response to The Michigan Daily's coverage of the incident on Saturday. While I really appreciated the care and sensitivity with which the writers approached this topic, as well as the discussions of the ways the incident particularly affected Muslim and minority students, I have to take issue with one detail ­— the way The Daily presented the role of word-of-mouth information during the events.

You love someone who has had an abortion. Or you will at some point, because one in four women will have an abortion in her lifetime.

We, the Undergraduate Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union at the University of Michigan, oppose the University’s decision to adopt a mandatory self-disclosure policy that requires employees to report felony charges and convictions. University faculty, staff and students have not been shy in their opposition to the policy since it was announced last month.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I want to be doing when I leave college for the real world. As a freshman, I’m going to have to decide soon which undergraduate degree to pursue so I can have an idea of the classes I will need to take in the upcoming semesters. Just the other day, things started to click.
